Controlling Home



What lays outside makes me want to hide
How the children cry and teenagers commit suicide
The dark at least covers my eyes
I'm scared it may be my time
The time someone else may decide
What has crawled inside won't leave this home
But I mustn't go

Matthew Morin Claim this poet

I am 16 years old, and enjoy writing poetry to express myself. My poems never leave the internet, so the only ones to see them are you. Hopefully you find them enjoyable and maybe even enlightening. Rarely do i try to evoke a feeling of happiness with my poetry but try to show the world for what it is. Often the imagery is called gruesome or sick, and if you feel that then you get it! My day to day experiences may be enough to make me write a poem, but usually it comes from my beliefs in religion and opinions towards society that does. So about me, personally, I am an atheist (gotta love science), and a communist. These two things majorly define me and what I write. So my poems dealing with relgion derive from my atheism, and poems on society come from communism. Hope you enjoy my poetry and that it makes you feel somthing and makes you think in a different light =) more…
