    Description:
       I've been unable to write much of anything except for funny, sarcastic stuff. Must be because I write from life too much....trying to do anything else has been disastrous.

    I think the rhythm of the last stanza is a bit different from the rest of the poem, but forget I said that, just judge it for yourself and let me know what you think (make me believe this someone still cares!).

    -------------------------------------------


    Wake up to the same old smell,
    get out of the same old bed;
    walk down the same old hall,
    same old throbbing in my head.

    Look into the same old mirror,
    same reflection stares back at me;
    sit down in the same old chair,
    same old shows on TV.

    The day goes by in the same old way,
    my brain is covered in mold;
    my face is ticking to the words,
    "Same old, same old, same old!"

    Same old crush is too close to my heart,
    same old song is stuck in my head;
    still feeding the same old art,
    same old peanut butter and bread.

    Same old books are beckoning
    fruitlessly from the shelf;
    I can't see past the words on the page,
    I can't think outside of myself!

    Still pushing the same direction,
    and something has got to give;
    still dragging the same old feet,
    the same old way is a hard way to live!

    You complain of not feeling yourself,
    which I think you are lucky to say;
    I am feeling very much myself,
    and I'm tired of feeling that way!

    Your rhythm is quite good actually, and I believe that only the shift in perspective in the last strophe makes it appear to have a different cadence than the others (which lends the close of the post a perfect, bone jarring quality).

    'Feeding the same old art?' Isn't that the truth.

    Nicely done

      I definitely feel this way somedays. Just go through school and nothing different happens, it just seems like a repeat of the day before. I disagree with you, I think the last stanza fits perfectly and seems to sum up the poem nicely. Repeating same old over again really helped express the dullness of your days. I really enjoyed reading this, but I didn't understand the line:

    "still feeding the same old art,"

    I'm not sure if there's a typo or I'm just ignorant, just thought I'd point it out.

    Peace,
    Love,
    And weed for all!
