Under God

Self righteousness burns tiny fingers,
In the shadows of the dim unknown.
Self behold, lies be told in the valley,
of death.

Walking the walk, of a stranger, stranger than strange.
Eating up malicious words.
Drumming the drummers of a drummer's beat.
Her feet, are like two left.
The ballerina fakes a smile,
While the not so perfect judgers, judge her.

In the valley of humans,
We are all aliens.
All different, yet Alike in some way.
All united as one,
In the pledge of alligance.
Standing up for your own.
Loathing a home, we all grew up in.

The soldier shoots to get killed,
Dying for a nation that never appreciated him.
We die, while the enemy smiles.
The sky is dark like our minds.
We are oblivious.
In this self righteous nation,
Seperated from the world as one,
Under God, We fall.

Chante Abbott Claim this poet

My name is Chante' Noel Abbott. I am 20 years old and a West Virginia girl. I have been writing poetry since I was 6 years old. I have more composition books filled with words than I can honestly handle. I have a 2 year old son who keeps me going each day. What can I say, between my love for him, and these West Virginia mountains, I have enough inspiration to last a life time. <3 more…
