Webstar

Poem

By JASMINE CATES
On October 24, 2011

Picture...Rainbows tattooed onto blue skies that cross roads with rose

petal gardens. Picture...Inhaling oxygen filled happiness where smiles are

contagious, Na na na wait

Picture... having mind changes within changes, where people try to change

you but cant seem to jigsaw your puzzle, so your unsolved like a

crossword, so they cross words to word "weird"

 

This was once the world for her. See once upon a time she kept pushing

back life but life has a way of pushing back backs that cant seem to

stand up straight. Different have always been her best makeup but it

tends to pierce through her mind like how laughter inserts itself into

slaughter or like how listen cages in silence.

 

I heard different strumming on the strings of her vocal chords but

courage died on the tip of her tongue. Classmates class mates to clash

mates into cast mates. The took the hands of individuality and broke it

so that when you look at it, it spells dual meaning pair, meaning two,

meaning the same

 

They tried to break her down to make her broken cause they know

that… shards of glass could never be pieced back together, broken smiles

could never be pieced back together, fractured souls could never be

pieced back together when the most important piece isn't at peace so the

pieces doesn't fit.

 

But she is the genesis to unique. She is she, I am me, weird is normal,

normal doesn't exist, and they are.....the same.

Picture.... your name being Webstar because your a live definition of

what it means to be YOU

Picture...putting the "I's" in identity because you cant live life as a

copy, when the printer is broken.
