Analysis of Meet me halfway

I remember back in the days
 When you wouldn't even meet me halfway.
 Not street to street no destination.
 Where did you lay.

On a very thin pad.
 With roaches and rats
 Feeling always sad
 As family lack communication.

You told me Karma was a witch
 You stole from people.
 Now you trying to survive in a ditch
 Don't give me nothing,  to understand your situation.

You wear the same clothes
 As they grow bigger wholes
 You hand wash everything.
 Living in a poor location.

You take walks takes forever
 To get where you want to be.
 You love the weather
 Can't handle it, feeling pain, frustration.

Jon Otano

The topics I write about are very diverse, so are the poetry styles I apply. I started writing poetry in high school in 05. I had written some poetry during class and showed some of my classmates who enjoyed it! I then was chosen to have my poetry in the school newspaper for each month! I done a lot of my work in the library. I met a woman who i showed my work to that worked there, and she said she knew a man that works on the radio! Then i was able to read two poems off the radio. A news reporter who appeared on the station as well decided to do a report on me and I've been writing ever sense. :) If Anybody want to friend request me on Facebook feel free too! Just look up Jon Otano I should be easy to find! :) more…
