I read the book Catalyst by Laurie Anderson. For my genre piece I wrote a poem that shows how Kate acts and feels through the novel. Through my poem I hope you will understand the pain that Kate lived with during her last year of high school having so many obsticals in her way.
I guess this is it,
I’m done with the pain,
There is more fight left inside me,
I’m done playing your childish games,
There is no more reason to cry or shout,
Because my heart is telling me to just get up and walk out,
Love and laughter is all that I need,
So just leave me alone for I do not need,
Any yelling or screaming in my life anymore,
Because my heart is to tired, it’s just another chore,
Why is the earth filled with envy and greed?
While we sit around looking for a plea,
Bargain with god, its never going to come,
So we do it ourselves, that’s what will make us strong,
Helping others whenever I get the chance,
Even when I do not get to dance,
For the joy that I deserve,
Even though I get shot down I still get up,
Death is just so absurd,
Why kill a little boy with a plan,
To grow and be what ever he wants to be,
Unlike his mom, who is not lucky to be,
Just like mine, life is just ugh,
I’m done, I’m out!
But then I turn around because I still feel I need to help out.
