wut up yall. this is my first poem on this board, my motha died upon givin birth to me cause she lost too much blood(in tanzania) cause our hospitals werent all that good. so this is a way of me communicatin wit her...it aint finished all the way but, gimme some feed back on some stuff to improve on aight?? thanx yall. very much appreciated.

i once was lost in this wonderfully hideously world

my body, mind and eyes rendered uselesslly into the unknown

my heart, dry as a desert, full of dust. sufferin from thirst

as you were the rain withheld, as i longed for water, while suckin on dry dirt.

i would gaze up at the clear night sky and wonder where you were

did you look at the rising sun and think of me?

my pen and paper and the ink across the page

my only means of escape from this invisible cage.

every shattered emotion pourin outta my heart

with my bruised soul torn apart......

crawling out seeking for helping hands

my life has just been a cloudy sky
