"What Will It Take ?" ... A Poem written by Big Virge 12/9/2005

What Will It Take For Us To See ...
We're Facing The END of Humanity ... !?!

Tragedies From RISING SEAS ... !!!
FLOODING Far Too FREQUENTLY ... !!!
In Places That Water Just Should NOT Be ... ?!?

KILLING Sprees From Kids To Trees ...
NATURAL Things CAN'T Cop ... " A Plea " ... !!!

It Just REACTS With VIOLENT Seas ... !!!
Hurricane Winds And Tsunamis ... !!!!!

Meantime We Create ARMIES ...
SURELY This WON'T Set Us Free ... ?!!!?

Waging WARS To Find Some Peace ... ???
This Makes Little Sense To Me ....

WHO Is ........................ FREE ..... ?!?!?
From MURDER Sprees ... ?!?

It Seems That People WANT To See ...
The Death of ALL HUMANITY ... !?!

SO MANY Grieve From Being Bereaved ...
It Seems We Just Have NOT Achieved ...
A Way For ALL To Be .... " HAPPY " ....
Death Is NATURAL Just Like BIRTH ...

But Guns Are Things That PEOPLE Work ... !!!
Was KILLING Really ... Part of The Plan ... ?!?!?

If It ... IS ...
We'll Soon Be DAMNED ... !!!!
Cos' Nature Now Is KILLING Man ...
Women And YES Their Children ... !?!?!?!

It May Seem That I Don't Hold Much Hope ...
But Writing Things Helps Me To Cope ... !!!

COPE With PRESSURES ...
We ... Create ...

And Try To Find A BETTER Fate ...
Than DYING Cos' I Got IRATE ...
And Punched Someone With BULLETS To SPRAY ... !!!!!

See Poetry REALLY HELPS Me ...
To Deal With STRESS And REALITY ....

Cos' Things I Write May DARKEN Light ...
But DARKNESS Roams Our Streets At Night ... !!!!!

But MANY Think This ISN'T Right ... ?!?
Well I Suggest You Check The News ...

Look and SEE How Many DIE ... !!!
NOT Because They've Reached ....................................... " Old Age ".

But BECAUSE of Someone's RAGE ... !!!!!

Words I Put From Pen To Page ...
Stake My CLAIM To Be ... " Poetry's Sage " ... !!!

Worthy of A Place On ... " ANY Stage " ... !!!

So What Will It Take For Me To BREAK ...
The Barriers Placed In Front of Me ...

By Those Thinking ... " WHO IS HE !?! " ...

THOSE Who Think ...
I SHOULDN'T Say The Things I SAY ... !!!!!!
WHY NOT Talk About Today ... ?!?

Cos' Life Right Now Is NOT A Game ... !!!

I'm TRYING To Find A BETTER WAY ...
For US To Be So WE Can CLAIM ...

A Future FILLED With BRIGHTER Days ... !!!

FREEDOM ..................................................
WITHOUT ............................................................................ Disarray ... !!!!!

Places Where Our Kids CAN PLAY ...
WITHOUT Violence On DISPLAY ... !!!!!!

DON'T YOU WANT That TOO ... ?!!!?
I'd LIKE To Think That SOME OF YOU DO ... !!!

But So Far I've NOT Seen Much Proof ... !!!
Sherlock I'm NOT So ... Give Us A Clue ... ???

DON'T BE ................................. "shy" .........
PLEASE Share Your Views ....

But MAKE SURE That You're Being TRUE ... !!!

DON'T Tell ME LIES You'll Be SURPRISED ...
What You Might Find That I Am Like ...........................................
AWAY From ......................................................................... " A Mic' " ........

We May Not Have Such DIFFERENT Plights ... ???
Just DON'T PRESUME You'll ALWAYS LIKE ...
Thoughts I HOLD ... "Inside My Mind" ...

I CAN BE Pretty HARD Sometimes ... !!!
But That's Because I've Had A HARD LIFE ... !!!

NOT .... "POVERTY FILLED" .... !!!!!!
But Money DOESN'T Save The ILL ... !!!

And CERTAINLY DOESN'T Help You ... " Chill " ... !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This HAS BEEN Our BIG MISTAKE ... !!!!!

Money DOES NOT Make You ... " GREAT " ... !!!
COME ON NOW For HEAVENS SAKE ... !!!!

I'd Rather FIND A TRUE Soul Mate ...
Than Have Enough Cash To Buy The WHOLE CAKE ... !!!!!

One Thing You CAN'T BUY Is Your Own FATE ... !!!

Can't We See That We Would Be Much BETTER Placed ...
If We ACCEPTED Each Other Regardless of Our Gender or Race ... !!!

I WANT To See A PEACE FILLED State ...
So Let Me Ask You THIS ...
