Boredom is Rage Spread Thin

Posted: May 20, 2016 by jacobvannatter in JacobV

Uhhhhhhh

Another day of work.

But I have to do it.

I watch the clock slowly move its old hands,

Its ways to make every second drag for hours elude me.

 

Last five minutes of class

 

I look across the class to my friend.

He’s asleep.

I don’t even hear the teacher anymore, it’s just incoherent babbling now.

I look back up at the clock.

It’s only been thirty seconds.

Youth Is Fleeting

Posted: May 20, 2016 by jacobvannatter in JacobV

I get reminded from when I was young.

I never worried how fast things were going-

I liked the speed.

But slowly, the realization came to me.

I’ve gone too fast.

Now the years of youth are gone,

and I am alone.

Every night I stare at the ceiling,

Wishing they’d come back.

Maybe, just maybe,

I’ll dream about it.

As I stare at the ceiling,

Wishing the years would come back.

Anger

The taste of blood

The desire to destroy

Something must fall

For me to be okay

 

The red haze blurs my vision,

My thoughts are clouded by one impulse

Lash out.

Fight.

Kill.

 

It makes you wish for revenge

Makes you care more for vengeance than your own well-being.

Behind the narrowed eyes, and determined look,

There’s a storm.

And it will tear and shred anything

If you keep feeding it…

You’re gonna get hurt.

Picture

Sometimes people forget

How quickly a life will end.

Mine will be a fraction of a second,

Yours may not be so fast.

Entire cities obliterated,

Homes destroyed,

We scorch and scar our world,

But to what purpose?

All lives will end some day.

But I guess people forget that, too.

 

Or maybe that’s how people think.

It will all be forgotten one day,

So they leave a mark.

Another scar to add to the already burning Earth.

So take a picture.

Because it will last longer.

Scream

Posted: April 13, 2016 by jacobvannatter in JacobV

Dragged you to the depths

The depths of your mind

Where all the hate swirls around you like a tornado of negativity

And yet,

I still see the good.

I still see you haven’t done all things horrid.

But that does not excuse you from your fate.

Your fate of your sin.

You’ve lied,

Stolen,

Murdered.

And still you beg me,

“Let me leave!”

Never shall you escape

For the weight of your sin

Is too great.

Road

Posted: April 13, 2016 by jacobvannatter in JacobV

People say there are two roads

One to failure and one to success.

But someone who actually knows will tell you,

There is only one road, littered with failure.

So the only question that matters is,

Are you going to stop before you reach the end?
