Ignoring Ignorance

I don’t read the news any more

The headlines only depress me

More deaths here

A tragedy there

Worse than before

The world has never seen this

Words, words, words

Empty without real feeling

Ignorance is nothing more than ignorance

-Kel Dayheart



Never quite forgive

This feeling you inspired

The hatred you instilled

In my very heart

For people I had never met

And judged them

For faults you perceived

Never allowing me to

Develop my own ideas

So I can never

Quite forgive you

For this hatred you planted

In my childhood

-Kel Dayheart

Artistic License

There is no wrong way

To create poetry

You don’t need

To fit a mold

Or fit into a preconceived format

Poetry is art

And art has always been free

So please darling

Set your poetry free

-Kel Dayheart


*So I was really excited (and somewhat shocked) to see that I had reached 300 followers! I figured you guys deserve an extra newly written poem.

Quote of the Week #12

So I like a good old movie now and again. Some of my favorites are Audrey Hepburn’s movie (How to Steal a Million Breakfast at Tiffany). She just one of those people you can’t help but like.

I love people who make me laugh. I honestly think it’s the thing I like most, to laugh. It cures a multitude of ills. It’s probably the most important thing in a person.
