Sister

 

It was 4am when I got a phone call

 

It was my ma she was crying

 

She said come to hospital

 

Your sister is dying

 

All of a sudden I dropped to the floor.

 

I didn’t know what to do.

 

I got to the hospital and rushed

 

Through the door.

 

There she was lying on the bed.

 

She couldn’t move anymore.

 

I held her hand and said I loved her.

 

It wasn’t long before she was dead.

 

I just ran over and hugged my mother.

My Son

 

Family is all about love

 

laughter

 

constant ups and downs.

 

You don’t have to be happy all the time.

 

But a little smile will do.

 

My family is not perfect.

 

But memories are.

 

I’ll cherish every moment with my little star.

 

My son is my world.

 

I wouldn’t change a thing about him.

 

Only the cranky moments.

Human

 

Every machine has a heart and a soul.

 

They come with bodies, brains, heart and emotions.

 

They can be damaged and hurt by others.

 

Thrown in to despair and lost.

 

They can also be rebuilt and confident.

 

Grow powerful and strong.

 

Strive for greatness and glory.

 

This is why we are unique.

 

That is why they call us human.

My Reasons

 

I wake up

 

every morning,

 

go out,

 

come home

 

life is just boring.

 

There’s no change

 

in my everyday life

 

my mates and mine

 

all full of strife.

 

I try to keep them

 

all alive with the advice I provide.

 

But in trying to save everyone else

 

I have lost myself.

 

My best friend confessed

 

he took 50 pills one night.

 

It hit me like a rock to my chest.

 

I was thinking

 

All I could be doing right now

 

Instead of him telling me this.

 

For months on end I was stressed to bits.

 

I have my reasons for helping people

 

I never want others to feel how I feel.
