    Poem Questioning War And Fighting

    Hurt, pain, suffering, people are dying.
    What's going on? We're both crying.

    People running scared; they don't know what to do.

    Poem About Michael Jackson

    You taught me the ABC's and my 123's. Your musical genius will go down in history.
    Your nickname was the King of Pop. You Never Stopped Until You Got Enough.
    People of all ages learned to Rock With You, Billie Jean wasn't your lover and you Beat It too.
    Your music was Black or White, Thrilling was your game. Now that you're not here the world will never be the same.

    Response To Orlando Tragedy

    Today another tragedy in the news,
    Senseless violence from people with nothing to lose.

    Instead only focused on placing the blame.

    Planes coming in at night.
