POEM @8: Convinced

Hi everyone! I'm sorry I haven't updated my blog in almost 5 weeks. :P I have been pretty busy, and I admit a bit lazy as well. Writing is still my biggest love! But the down side of that is that writing isn't a relaxing hobby like singing or reading. It takes patience to sit down in front of the computer and ignore other beckoning temptations, which are "easy fun", as I call it - writing takes some time to get into, but once you're onto it, you truly enjoy yourself. The fun just takes time to come!

So now today I have finally defeated that thing that's holding me back, and here I am, five weeks later. I hope to get back on track! :P

Here's my new poem, titled Convinced. :)

@8: Convinced  
Laughter and snickers a sum,
Mocking sneakers on bum, 
Mutters and whispers 
"She's dumb". 

Finally I run 

It's not a bit fun
But to my absolute horror
The same snickers and sneakers 
Still loiter 
In this new foyer 
So similar to days former.

Cynical a person you've made me 

Through deliberate deception 
You gave me this conception 
That heartlessness prevails in all the world.
Now all I see
Is a sea 
Made of identical cruelty 
And that's always meant to be. 

So don't gawk at me

When I'm tempted to flee
For a recluse's life is free.

Don't speculate

When I hesitate 
To even try brewing 
Normal, natural friendships
For all the way hitherto 
Never you failed in a convince so true
That thoughtlessness in cauldrons 
Are in abundance, 
And will destroy the potion of friendship. 

For you've made me believe

That evil makes up all the world.
