Inspired Poem Based on "Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night"

Do not go gentle into that world,
Life should be glorious and free,
Fight, Fight against the tyranny of life,
Though great men at the dawn of day know life is wrong,
Because their words give no light they
Fight , fight against the tyranny of life,
Bad men, the first wave of, cry at the dark,
Their wrong lives have jigged in the light,
Fight, fight against the tyranny of life,
Free men who give life a right,
Lose more than they might,
Fight, fight against the tyranny of life,
Young men, a dawn of life,
Bright eyes that give such meaning,
Fight, fight against the tyranny of life,
And you, myself, there giving up,
Bless, damn, me now with you tearless eyes, I weep,
Do not go gentle into that world,
Fight, Fight against the tyranny of life.

 

“Old Green Flannel”
This old green flannel,
I wouldn’t mind if I never saw again,
You may see a worn flannel,
But me,
I see something completely different,
I see someone,
I see the memories burned across my mind,
I see the places where her hair fell perfectly,
Leaving that sweet scent of home,
When she wore it,
I see my shaky hands undoing the buttons,
Before kissing her soft lips,
And I see the end,
And I see missing her,
So,
If you take my flannel,
You may keep it,
Because it has too many bad memories for me.
 
 
 
“The California Sun”
Here I sit,
In Indiana,
Watching the Indiana sun rise,
And seeing as it’s rays,
Light up the rows of corn,
Oh,
How I wish that I were in California,
Watching that California sun rise,
Turning the ocean’s turbulent waters,
Turn red from the burning sun,
But instead I sit here,
Alone,
Watching the sun rise,
And wishing I were home.
 
“Lost”
Dear People who’ve left,
I just thought you should know what I’m doing now,
I’m a lost person,
Who spends a lot of time in my own thoughts,
I just thought you should know how I’m feeling,
I am empty,
Because this sensation won’t go away,
I just thought you should know what I’ve been through,
Since the last time I saw you,
I have lost so much,
The time that I once had was especially important to me,
I just thought you should know what I wish for the future,
I hope that people long to stay,
Rather than walk away,
I just thought you should know what I don’t miss about you,
I’m glad I don’t have to worry about your poison killing my happiness anymore,
I just thought you should know what I miss a lot,
I miss the way I used to be,
I just thought you should know what you made me feel,
My heart aches,
And moans,
Wishing you hadn’t left,
I just thought you should know how I sleep,
I wake many times,
And end up laying alone with my harrowing thoughts,
I just thought you should know that I always hurt,
No matter how happy I seem,
I just thought you should know what haunts me,
My past looms over me like a ghost,
I just thought you should know I’m lost,
This dark world has me caught,
And there is no way out.
