Random Poem:

Makes The Person
Darcy

Home sweet home
 1
I made it through the filter
 2
Between welfare motels
 3
And attempted robberies gone bad
 4
Due to poor conduct
 5
Like a fraudulent check discarded
 6
Only because you didn’t want to wait in line
 7
Impatience is a virtue, too
 8
If you know how to use it
 9
I was always pretty good
 10
So I proved it
 11
Skipped out on school
 12
Moved to the city, felt a little better
 13
As part of something else
 14
Something bigger than myself
 15
Bigger than this salty town
 16
Though, still on the ocean
 17
Until I learned the truth
 18
That the something was really just a part of me
 19
And not the other way around
 20
Because it’s not the person that makes the city
 21
It’s the city that makes the person
 22
