    A hundred thousand lives
    The aftermath of a natural disaster
    The statistic that doesn't matter
    As much as the death of one famous man
    Who were these people?
    Who most see as another to a death toll?

    I am nothing to write home about
    I have spent my time coming in
    second, third, hundredth place.
    Have I made someone smile?
    Helped to make their day better?
    Laughed with someone who's been good to me?

    I am truly happy for you
    Wherever you go from now,
    I wish you luck on your journey
    I'll take my place in the back seat
    And live on the belief that the little successes
    Have been what makes it work

    Millions of ordinary people like me
    Who will they become?
    Part of a statistic?
    Just another number?


    It is the ordinary people who dream
    Who write the stories of humanity
    Tales of survival, of adventure
    Of determination and courage
    Seven billion stories and counting
    Every small part of the world comes together
    To create something extraordinary.

    That's a really great poem.
    I think about this topic every day.

    Yeah, it's nice, isn't it?
    And especially the part in the middle, how some people can even be a nobody among other ordinaries.

    The ghosts of the life of those
    Unrecognised
    Who are losing the will to see
    If there is anything still ahead
    Misty lights on the river
    There's an ending to every story
    But not every ending is
    The one they've dreamed of all along
    Because at the end of the day
    The river's just a river


    OMG, I'm going to have to stop posting depressing stuff! [​IMG] Skip to page two if you want something more interesting. I've put it in bold - the stuff I usually write consists of rhyming items that diss politicians, air traffic control systems and use big words. [​IMG]

    This is one of my favourite songs:
    Count the stars
    Watch the waves
    Absorb the summmer sun
    And think of me
    When you explore
    Hidden coves and tiny island chains
    Throughout the sea
    Can you still hear my voice
    When I'm outside
    From over the phone
    For what it's worth, darling dear
    I wish you were here
    When you were home, we'd sing
    But since you left I don't hear anything
    And though I feel so sad
    I can't believe things are really that bad.

    That first poem is beautiful.

    That song is pretty and a lil sad.

    Old captains and brand new cruiseships
    Sailing over the briny sea
    I'll crash my beloved desk job
    And swim through the debris
    I'll cut loose and leave this madhouse
    Bound for the Atlantic blue
    I'll stroll down your tree-lined driveway
    And sail the ocean with you


    Awww [​IMG]
