There is a poetry contest at my school, and we can submit 3-4 poems, I only want to submit 2 or 3, I need to know soon which poems are best. If I mispelled anything, sorry, I really need opinions of which poems to enter. BEAST (version 1) It matters not the sex of the species but yet the heart of the beast and yes I do refer to humans as beasts for I do not know of another word better suited for them beasts, defined by ferocious nature and terrifying glares of hunger the ability to nurture one of their own one with the stench of evil and the hatred for the innocent and those beasts take innocence they consume souls whole if you are not born beast, surely you will become one and if you do not belive humans are beasts understand only beasts have a need to control beasts a species of horror only divided from their nightmare bretheren by the mind the mind, the beasts weapon of choice the mind can destroy all, even the beast in which it lies and we are the worst kind of beast, for we're are supposed to be evolved and evolving I fear what sort of beast may be next in this evolutionary chain For we are already the kind of beast that kills for fun and then kills for control We seem to believe we have the right to do these things For we are evolved, we are beasts with thumbs therefore we must be the gods of the lesser beasts and if we are the gods of the lesser beasts then what kind of beast is our god for it was from this gods mind that the creation of beasts came but the dividing line was that he gave the lesser beasts instincts and the "evolved" beasts choices BEAST (version 2) What matters is not the sex, but yet the heart of the beast and yes I do refer to humans as beasts, for I do not know a word better suited for them. A beast, defined by its ferocious nature and hatred of innocence. Beasts have ways of destroying innocence, they sneak into the minds of children and rot them from within. Only beasts have a need to dominate, and we, the beasts of thought have come to believe that the beasts of instincts are beneath us. So we kill and attempt to control those who we consider are beneath us. We do this to play God, the thought that we, mere mortals, can dictate fate excites our minds, and tickles our fancies, and not to forget, the mind, our most powerful weapon, so powerful it can destroy the very beast in which it lies. As for God I am fearful of this God, this beast from which the excistance of man. This all powerful, all knowing beast that I am to stand before and recieve riteous judgement. If we, the people, are created in this Gods image What sort of beast is he I must wonder, what is beast magnified like. REBEL Parents want control and teachers want more money the government lays down more laws and restrictions while dumb adults run this country Ignorance electing ignorance Staying completely still basking in ignorant bliss Praying for forgiveness just to go out and sin the same sin again We, the nation of equality Equality meaning discriminate until your under big brothers watch then become politcally correct and hire those who are not the best for the job Yes, we the nation of responsibility Responsibility meaning, we did it all in good intenstions and the death count doesn't need to be mentioned For the land of the free Free meaning minimum wage payed slaves The home of the brave Brave meaning cowards running the country while they send loved ones to be slaughtered in camo with guns displayed. GLASS The glass could be either and either way it'll do because someone out there is thirsy and they don't care if it's half empty or half full and no grass is green anywhere and even if it is it's just grass so who cares and maybe someday people will wake up with hearts and change their ways but don't count on it to admit they're wrong would send them into shame most people are terrified of change so they just stay the plain old same. SILENCE Save the silence for death because I don't want to hear it You can scream and shout but as long as your ignorant I'm not going to pay attention What will be done about our obviously depleting nation No one wants to think about it so they leave it all up to the morons who run this nation and the these "leaders" do is worsen the situation Contemplation, of the next big move Destroy all enemies before we ourselves are ruined.
