If You
Author: Ryan


If you never sleep, you'll never awake
If you never live, you'll never die
If you never love, you'll never break
If you never talk, you'll never lie

If silence is golden,
Then death is a gold mine.

I'm not another face in the crowd.
Even if I have to cut off little girl's heads to prove it.
I'll show you.

All of you.

I think what Ryan is trying to say by the "little girl decapatation thing" is...He's Unique and he wants to be noticed and reconigized for it. He's not just your "everyday ordinary Joe"
I really loved this poem Ryan, it's really deep. Keep up the great work!!

I like the first part the ending was an interesting way to prove that you would show that you werent just another person in the crowd but im not going to take that cutting thehead part to an "oh my god" level if that makes sense because i understand now that sometimes poets or writers use all kinds of ways to show what they mean i think i learned that about 4 years ago when i found a poem my 16 year old brother wrote about murdering and stuff and when i asked him about it he said that he was just putting himself in another persons shoes for the purpose of writing! anyway i dont think anyone is just another person in the crowd we are all people that make up this world! we are all important and have a special place even though some people dont think so including me! anyway keep writing! : )
