The Gang of Five

It certainly has been a crazy year, hasn’t it?  Well, thankfully, a new year is upon us and here at the Gang of Five forum we have a new year of showcases, prompts, and themes to get the new year started in the right way.  We wish you all a happy new year, and we look forward to what you have in store for us this year!

For the month of January we have a new character showcase.  Please warmly welcome Littlefoot's Mother! :)littlefoot The character showcase topic for this month can be found here.

Also keep in mind that the December and January prompts for the fanfic prompt challenge is now open.  We are doing things a bit differently this season and allowing for people to either fulfill a monthly prompt or a suggested prompt during each month.  I look forward to seeing what you all come up with! :)  The fanfic prompt rules and list of monthly prompts can be found here.

Foreword: This poem is very important to me, because I wrote it for my sister, who was adopted by us after having lived with an abusive family

 
It’s not fair, not fair
Not at all;
You’ve done nothing
wrong
The only thing you did
Was live.

It’s not fair, not fair
Not at all;
I wish for the same
Every time I see it
I wish to be there, to
defend
To defend you from
them
Who don’t want you
To Live




I wish for the same
Every time I see it
I see it the same
Every time I see it
That terror and pain
So clear in your eyes
Screaming.

Screaming, loud,
So loud
The screaming in your eyes
Deafens to the point
The screams from your mouth
Are lost, unheard

Just as unheard as they were,
By the ears of the one who
Left you like this
Left you like this.


For you it was not too late
But for some… for some
Help never comes…
Never comes…
They lie all alone, asking
What did I do?
But they did nothing wrong
All they did
Was live.

It’s not fair, not fair
Not at all;
I wish for the same
Every time I see it
I wish to be there, to
defend   
To defend you from
them   
Who don’t want you
To Live

Wow :blink:...very good poem, Tails_155 :yes.  Yeah, it's an all-too-sad reality that there are kids who go through such terrible mistreatment :cry.

thanks, I'm both happy I made the poem in the first place, and that I could improvise so well (I had one half of a class period to make it)

Wow, that's a good poem!  Being a poet myself, I can really appreciate things like this.  ...Man, you've got the gift, bro!  Keep on writing!
"And the Most High said unto Moses, Ahayah-Asher-Ahayah.  And he said, Thus shalt thou say to the children of Israel, Ahayah hath sent me unto you...  This is my name forever, and this is my memorial unto all generations."

1953-2011...  One day, mother, I shall see you again...
