Poem: Danny’s Story

Long, long, long ago,
A little boy grew up.
He had fears, he had dreams.
A longing in his heart that would never part.

There’s a story of that boy.
Told by many, it isn’t so pretty.

All by himself he would walk.
Down the halls, to the movies, no one would call.
He fell apart, broken heart.
A cry deep inside he would never hide.

Here’s the story of that boy.
Told by many, his name was Danny.

Grew up abandoned, fallen.
Always quiet, never knowing his thoughts.
He cried at night, all torn inside.
The cry grows deeper in screams never heard.

Listen well all you boys and girls.
Of a sad tale, storm full of whirls.

One day he broke down in tears.
All invisible to the ears and the eyes.
No one to confide, it’s hopeless.
A fight deep inside he would answer now.

He’s faithless with broken dreams.
His knife to the skin maybe relieve the pain.
Not for long, he’s dying inside.
He’s bleeding away hoping someone will save him one time.

That one time was his last time.
And the next day no one would see him again.

There’s a sad, sad story,
Told by many, of a boy named Danny.


About Lisa's Blog

Hi, I'm Lisa. I recently graduated from Gannon University with a Bachelors degree in Liberal Arts. For the past 3 months I have been looking for a job. My life has been boring. I'm trying to find something to amuse it. I started going to the gym to better my health and lift 50lbs. There's a blog idea! I will be 24 in October. I'm thinking about reading the Bible and having my own Busy Person's Retreat. Gannon offers BPR once each semester. Basically, you spend 30mins with God and 30mins with a Spiritual Director. My personal BPR will be 30mins with God reading a verse from the Bible or listening to a song and journaling. I love being creative. I've been writing poetry since I was in 4th grade. I'm interested in lyric writing but don't think I'm a great lyricist. I played Clarinet in middle school and high school. I got my first guitar a week before I turned 16. Took a year of lessons then stopped. Volunteering at church for Vacation Bible School was my life! I loved it! This year I will be volunteering for Religious Education. I have no idea what I will be doing there. I'm nervous but at the same time excited! I don't know what I want to be or do. I don't have any future plans. My mind gets empty when I think of my future. I really don't think about it much. I stay focused on the hear and now. I love baking brownies, cooking ramen noodle soup and velveeta. I know how to knit only one way. I one time made 6 scarfs in a month for my housemates at college. I have no idea how to end this. So, I will end it this way. If you have any questions or comments please feel free to ask.
