Poem: 'Gone'

Posted: April 24, 2013 - 3:31pm

Gone

by Terri Burdick

I lost my job today.

More than 29 years.

Why?

No answer.

My whole life.

Descend down, down, down,

Until I’m nothing but dirt.

I’m dead.

The sun is shining today.

But, will it ever shine for me again?

Poem Gone

It's easy to find Soldotna city manager and mayor e-mail address. They apparently don't feel obligated to respond to the public (me anyways). Maybe if enough people asked enough questions the would answer? Doneva Baker

Disturbing

This kind of writing is distrubing in the context of news, and it doesn't belong in our newspaper. Please seek professional help and submit your poetry to writing publications.

the arts and entertainment section where this poem is placed is the appropriate location to submit an original poem. if you look back through the archives you will see that to be true with many poems from different authors already here.

Please purchase your own media and then dictate your desires. I am highly unenthusiastic on a regular basis with your postings, yet there you are and no one has called you out for needing professional help and wanting you to be gone. It is okay for you to write even when you are wrong.
