Poetry Critical 2.0

Hey guys, Donald here.

In a few weeks, this site will be 9 years old. 9 years! And I still know some of the earliest submissions by heart.

But, boy. That’s like 102 in web-years. So it’s time for something new. I’m building that something now with my nights-and-weekend minutes (and plenty of coffee). Buy me a cup?

if I hurt you when I speak
 1
remember that
 2
you were taught to
 3
turn the other cheek
 4
this way is humble
 5
this way is weak
 6
but
 7
this is how you should be
 8
under the grace of what could be
 9
out there, up there, above you and inside you
 10
I realize you
 11
grew up with out grace
 12
with haste and hatred
 13
for what you don’t know
 14
you scream names
 15
play blaming games
 16
like to our government
 17
need a reason to vent
 18
what angered you?
 19
from your single point of view,
 20
you know, nothing is new
 21
you point your finger
 22
point your guns
 23
like oil was better than black coffee and white bread
 24
say your prayers   but
 25
only for this countrys dead
 26
to hell with the rest of them right?
 27
day-praying to god, fasting until night.
 28
they say christian is christ-like
 29
do you think christ could do something like
 30
this?
 31
