27 (who?)
To Be a Robot

They call me The Robot
I've learned to stop caring
My feelings distraught
No longer worth sharing

My life has been cruel,
Brutal and coldhearted
Throwing my emotions in a whirlpool
A fate that can't be darted

What hurts me the most
Won't leave me alone
Like a parasitic host
That can't be thrown

Suicide is a thought
But out of the question
A fate not to be sought
And a pointless action

Instead I have found
A safer painkiller
As my problems amound
To some it's a chiller

I no longer feel
I no longer care
Who needs to heal?
When you're no longer aware?

I no longer cry
I no longer laugh
I may seem dry
As sun-dried chaff

They call me The Robot
The one without feelings
I no longer give thoughts
To tugs at my heartstrings

I've learned to shut out
What hurts me the most
Those who like to shout
Are yelling at a ghost

And should I care?
That my insides are scattered?
When I'm no longer there
Nothing's left to gather
Had a rather interesting thought train on the way to school today. Everywhere its Robots turning humaniod, but in reality, can this effect reverse? can someone whose hurting so much turn robotic? shut out the things that hurt them the most to survive?

what causes people to feel fear to something, what causes them to laugh at another? why do they feel guilt and cry? is this something we can control? can we just...shut it out?

ya I have weird thought trains ^^;

I'm not very good when it comes to ryhming poems, so if anybody has any suggestions to make this better, do tell ^^

Keep it up practice makes perfect or so some say.
I happen to agree as perfection is a process of bettering one's self.
Also to answer you question it is possible to control any part of ourselves.
Though such would take much practice, faith, discipline, and will power.

indeed it does. this was just a little thing I wrote to get a thought off my mind. I kinda like how it turned out, but I dunno if I wanna really focus on fixing it all that much. I still like it though, I put a lot of feeling into it.

and yes, it does take a lot to focus one's emotions/reactions etc against the normality, for better or for worse

Ah, the 4-6% of brain users. The new norm will soon be balanced 8% of the whole body.

This flows very well for a rhyming poem, I've never been able to create a non-cheesy rhyming poem but you've done a fantastic job!
This really is a brilliant idea, as we all become more and more technologically advanced perhaps we may cross paths with robots? Them evolving into something more human and us filling the void left by their departure.....
What a brilliant idea!

actually, my idea was on a person who hurts so much inside, they turn their emotions off to deal with the pain. its a bitter blessing. You no longer feel pain and suffering, but you also don't know joy. is it really worth it?

It depends on how much joy you get out of life I suppose...
