very good poem
Casey my nephew, was a premature baby, so he had a hard time actually making it into this world. My family have sacrificed alot for him but it has all been worth it. Casey went into the hospital only a day or so after my birthday of November 2nd and did not get out until around the end of January. Casey became very sick with a couple diffrent virus's. The doctors did not believe he could make it and around the middle of November, most of my family did not have such high hopes but he surpassed our expectations and the docters very far. I wrote this poem for him because i wanted to write a poem and i needed somthing for my writing **** When i gave it to my teacher she asked me right away if i had copied it from some source but i said "no". She could not believe it and my family were also very impressed, so i tryed putting it in a poetry contest online. Which i did not win (although they said i was a finalist) but i got it in mine own book with tons of other poets. Its actually on the first page of the book.
The Invincible Casey
Hanging on by a thread
Just to see the world ahead making progress but still no sound
Casey slumbers yet fights with courage
So don’t give up Casey, don’t give up
He was born real small but fought through it all
A nephew, a son, a grandchild, a great-grandchild
Small he may be, yet Casey is filled with a lot of heart
A scream, a laugh, a smile
Casey is full of joyful eyes, all-the-while
A night may come,
When he becomes sick again
But Casey fights it through the end
A day may come
When he’s hurt or scared
But we’re there for him until he feels better again
There are angels watching over him
Who guard his soul
Who breathe life back into him
Who make him better again
With the slightest sign he fills us with hope
Until we see his smile
We shall forever wait,
For the angels final call,
And send him back home
To see his merry smile
To love his laughter
All the while
We long for Casey’s enthusiastic presence
As we celebrate Christmas spirit.
What do you guys think?
