Reap what you sow

If you'd only know

Karma is alive

I ran away

I did not stay

I hoped that I could

thrive

The deafening beat of a

broken heart

Everybody's mad

Rick and Kevin

Cousin James

Even Mom and Dad

I turn away from

the bickering

As I wash, rinse

and repeat

Wash it all out

of my hair today

So I can still

stand on my feet

      Nice. It is too bad when people fight.

      Nice poem. Hope people love each other more rather than fight.

      My favorite part was near the end.

      "I turn away from

      the bickering

      As I wash, rinse

      and repeat

      Wash it all out

      of my hair today

      So I can still

      stand on my feet"
