The World’s Gonna Die if

February 9, 2008

Age 31 - Age 35, Love Poems, War Poems

The worlds gonna die,
If you don’t go away.

It doesn’t matter if I cry
You have to go away.

I can scream
For death and hell;
It doesn’t go away.

I can dream
That all is well.
It doesn’t make you stay.

Damn the world,
Your wife needs you too
Tell them to go away.

Damn the truth,
The world’s gonna die
If you don’t go away.

    I’m not feeling the two uses of Bls Bla Bla. I think the poem would be stronger without that. Because this part is intense and really good:
    I can scream
    For death and hell;
    It doesn’t go away.

    I can dream
    That all is well.
    It doesn’t make you stay.

    This was the second time I read this poem, and I was excited to find that I realized something new from it, that is the word “if” in fact gives us numerous kinds of possibilities, such as we can scream, dream and we can do many things. What really matters is we must do something, otherwise the world may truly die.

    More or less I agree with you
