100 wc

People think I am a statue in a cloak,

Something just for show.

If I prove myself to them

One day they will know.

That I have feelings they’ve never even felt

I’ve seen things they’ve never seen before.

They think they are intelligent,

But clearly I know more.

I smile to myself when I think

These kids learn things, though nothing compares to me.

I can see everything they were too scared to look at.

I know who they want to be.

I know who I am just as well as they do.

For I am all living things, in conclusion

This whole earth is fake,

The life they’re living is just an illusion.

    Wow! This is an excellent poem and the first one I have seen so far. I love seeing the 100 words being used in less obvious formats, it shows great originality. I can see that you have use rhyme which makes the poem very nice to read as well.

    Hi Heidi! Thank you for posting on the 100 Word Challenge. Yes, this is the first poem that I have seen on here too. Well done – it flows really well and you have a good control over your content and pacing. It is also a little scary to think that it all that we think we know could be fake. Very thought provoking! Well done. I look forward to seeing your next post on the 100 Word Challenge.
