Humanity Comes And Goes-written at age 12

Standard

Today I got my teeth drilled at the dentist and my right cheek is swollen and my mouth is still numb and it hurts 😦  coulda been woorse though-I was pretty close to getting a root canal for heaven’s sakes! Stupid teeth-brushing regiments!

and now for the poem of the day-it’s something I wrote when I was 12-completely unedited, It is exactly the same down to the line breaks.

Humanity comes and goes

The red houses over blue seashells:

running past the leaves of smoke

like gas extinguished from an unknown flame;

humanity comes and goes.

freedom over memories:

glinting to what-

but what came first?

the songs are a mesh of cruelty over

innocence;

humanity comes and goes.
