Seven Seventeen

Post by Adnama » Mon Dec 23, 2002 10:38 pm

I wrote this'n a few mins ago, as i was just about ready to give in to the urge to cut, i glanced at the clock, 7:17, so i wrote this poem in hopes to push it back for a little while longer at lest. Lemme know what you think.



Seven Seventeen



Seven seventeen,

And look what I?ve done,

Yet again,

Once again,

The marks mare my flesh



Seven eighteen

I?ve done it again,

Destin for ever,

To remain,

With fresh marks on my flesh



Seven nineteen

I?ve done it once more,

Fresh marks mar my arm,

For ever minuet I go on,

In this madness



Seven twenty

Once you start,

You can?t stop,

I can?t at least,

More marks mar my flesh



Seven twenty one

Enough for tonight

My temporary solace achieved,

The respite from the madness accomplished,

For now



But by Seven seventeen

I?ve done it again

I?ll never stop,

I?ll always remain,

Every night fresh marks on my flesh

When I hear somebody sigh that Life is hard, I am always tempted to ask, Compared to what?

If we did the things we are capable of, we would astound ourselves.

Ability is what you're capable of doing. Motivation determines what you do. Attitude determines how well you do it.


You see things; and you say Why? But I dream things that never were; and I say Why not?

It is a hard matter, my fellow citizens, to argue with the belly, since it has no ears.
