"Some things will never change"---Tupac

This atmosphere is filled with
Many different emotions
Full of love, full of hate
The main atmospheric pressure

Its amazing how people could
Overcome the force of this
Cloud, the strength of this
Pain, The wind of this rain,
The cry of these strains.

This world is filled with
Many different motives
Some of which may harm
The human race and some
That will benefit

Its funny how this
World was made of
Peace, made of streaks,
Made with peaks, then
Result in grief.

This room is filled with
A diversity or many people
Full of potential, full of
Crap...The two main priorities

Its strange how people
Could look one another
In the eyes and smile
Afterward, they may joke
A while

This heart is filled
With many different feelings
Full of love, full of care
Full of trust, my main focus.

Its funny how you could
Give your all to someone
That doesn't respect you.
Some that just don't give
A DAMN how you feel.

What a strange, funny, and
Amazing world we live in.
Full of love, full of hate
The main atmospheric pressure.

I like the part bout "giving your all to someone when they don't give a d***" cuz it's true that no one does give a d***

I like the "Give your all to someone" part. Cuz it's true and it is amazing that you could chizel a statue of a person with your teeth, and they would not give a damn to save their life.

i loved how this poem had a light, almost flippant tone and how contrasting the meaning is to the tone. it's really clever

Your word choice and flow, your opinion and attitude, just wonderful. You're a true poet. I'd love for you to criticize my work, truly.
