I just want to get something off my chest, all the qualities  that make me stress, like why my mom is so depressed, and studying for the ACT test, hoping I can beat the best.   I'm only 17,
I am plastic, Your child’s best friend, I am small and held in their hand, I am tall and pretty, And every girl wants to be me,  
I hold her hand as her world liquifies through her eyes, I listen as she narrates the lies, Recreates their lows and highs. How time flies, Only yesterday he said, "Surprise" Proposing to her, that was so wise.
Falling hard from reality, seeing the unexpected A dark, scary scene that no soul should witness Seeing a broken family become connected Yet the loved one is listless Too late, life's favorite words

He is but a Rose, the undefinable beauty, an incomprehensible nature She grasps him like a child, but she bleeds. She wants to admire the beauty, his features as intricate as petals
Love, a thing of beauty Love, a relationship as sweet as chocolate Love, something I have waited far too long to see Love, I embrace you as you walk your way too me Love, now that we have met, I accept your offer
A crazy kind of feeling the young girls call fun adrenaline like heartbeats at the sight of it my mama call it danger
Sometimes I sit down and contemplate// About my life and how I’m destined to fail// And the route I’m destined to take is pale// Raised by a single mother all I had back then was her faith/
  Everybody wants to eat in this economy|| The one's at the top want to shine alone like some white supremacist astronomy|| Unconsciously controlling our sub conscious, telling it "Niggers Follow Me!"||
The name Ilanah means a tree... tree Nothing bold like 'judge of God' or to be watchful and observant or pretty like 'princess, beauty or precious gem' My name is seemingly simple

I hear the screams I hear the cries But when I try to stop them The voices reply, "Darling dear….” “You've been talking back!"
Your uncle is dead, my father says late at night in my room.
As I sat there, in the desolation and iciness of my room, I couldn’t shake the thought of you from my helpless mind, and the sweet taste of your lips forever clinging to mine,
How can something be so refreshing, Yet so draining?   An escape, Yet a prison?   Monsters under the bed. Monsters in my head.
Some might say the color brown is boring, bland, too close to black, but if you knew, you would understand; because it’s the color of his eyes. They’re not just ‘brown’.
I look, I see, I tolerate thee. For I cannot agree with your thinking, I can agree that we're all human beings. Nothing can change that and nothing will. We are not to turn a blind eye to to those in danger,
The music flies through my earslike birds flying through the wind.Swift, fast and gracefulMore alluring than the sweet sound of darkness that threatens to overtake me
Find your own voice they say! But I am in a desert and my throat is parched, Searching for an oasis of clarity. They try to help me!
Noise, noise, all of the noise Yelling, screaming, yelling, screaming It gets louder as it enters my head Headaches, not only headaches, Bruises, cuts, and scrapes too,
You, You are like the fireflies in the summer, Always lighting up when I’m not around. Taunting me with your height and the way you reach for the sky.   Me, I am like a blade of grass.
Life gave me the motions but without the vibrations Melancholy attacked and my soul was in constant isolation Life was a chess board and my king was checkmated You stay silent and tell no one assuming they never related
I hear you I hear you in the pouring rain... Words Words that cannot escape my brain. The unexplained
Numerous one of us are unconscious of a portion of the lifelines. Particularly when a crisis comes, we surrender as we run shy of thoughts. One such circumstance is the money crunch circumstance.
When all was lost and friends strode by Refusing to look me in the eye, I found a companion, a lifelong friend In something as simple as paper and pen.   They bullied me and made me sad
I am going to be honest, I hate you. I hate the way you talked to me. And because I hate you, I hate me. I hate the way we used to be. When we saw one another, we fought almost instantly.
Everyday I walk through these aching halls, Waiting for someone to help, But they all mock me, They make me feel worthless, They put me in agony, They betray me, They use me, They abuse me,
  Her pen flows across the paper like the river that flows though her little town. She found herself at that river,  every time the thunderstorms began again. Letting herself float down the river,
My depression is like I’m swimming through a deep darkness Thick and black like oil My airways are blocked Panicking desperately to reach the surface But an anchor chained to my left foot

She is a queen Her face like wind through winter She asked questions And gave answers In a clear voice Then knelt before the Gray Wolf Heir to the temple Before hailing the ancestors
Ooo girl, you are like a pear . . . within a pear. Woah. So thick. Juicy. Voluptuous but not too big, kinda like a poem: Perfect. That's you, girl.  
Sit and think.   Thoughts flow like a needle through tapestry. A tapestry tinged with yellow thread Yellow, like my contentment.  
Hard work, you can get anywhere if you have it It is something you have to admit And if you commit Surely you will be happy And I can bet
Interminable seas flow further than one could see An interruption and the boat begins to sink, there goes the glee My muscles ache from the long swim to sand I cling to the photo album with my cold, bare hand
My Little Sister I can't live without her her warm hugs and collection of ladybugs My Little Sister always reading books only pausing to give me silly looks My Little Sister
Take Me Away To somewhere new and familiar A place without judgment or fear A place to express the self   Take Me Away Where I can dance to the beat Let the notes flow through
Click, like an automatic switch Thoughts slowly creeping its way out, From the crevices of the brain. The day has just begun. You need to get ready for: school, work, the day Glances at mirror
You're so pretty! Your face is beat! Oh my God! You're hilarious!   I love compliments. Conceited much? No. I'm quite Precarious.  
  Wearing you takes me to a different place, Where the noises around me are no longer audible. I carry you everywhere just in case,
Friendship tastes like a chocolate on Halloween, A nice, delicious treat. Friendship tastes like a randomly picked grape, Maybe sour or maybe sweet. Friendship tastes like water after a workout,
One day I will know it, the next not, but it is eternal.   Days I will fall, but when it caresses my tresses that fall along scars and scabs hidden from the world, I rise.  
6 years ago I set my fate, When I looked into your eyes all I saw was ice, And with my firey personality I was determined to break down your walls, Not knowing you'd put them back up but with me on the inside.
What can't I live without? Well this may be hard, without a doubt A person, an object, or even an idea you say? So a friend, a stuffed animal, or even the thought of being on broadway?
I want to shine like a star Go far, to be close to one's old self is too closed Minded, I have a hope, been on the down slopes Now I'm on a roll, I'm sure I have a path
God of mercy, sweet love of mine, your love is like a radiant diamond. Such love I cannot contain, like a blazing wild fire. On the cross you shed your blood for a sinner like me. I cannot live without you.
There's a hole in my soul and a hole in my sole It hurts when I dream and it stings when I walk   There's a mountain staring down at me   A silent letter (doubled, sixth to the end)
A book I love, a book I need, for what to carry on a deserted island than a book with seeds.   The drawings that grow of the dangers I see, my journal I keep them in
She is bent impossibly, her wits have no end. But there's no muck in her teeth or alcohol in her breath.   There's a glint in her eye, questions drip off the tip of a sharp, tongue.
Strength. The word so demanding, so  strong. If only I have the courage to be strong to be fearless to be.. me. Its not until we are alone that we experience reality
If I was to put into words The most necessary thing in my life I would be doing her an INJUSTICE   She is more than just a thing She is more than a common annoyance
I still think about you.And it's been years. So long ago that the only actual memories I have of us are before age five.
Ive been thinking bout you a lot lately..Maybe a little too much..Breath stinking roaches on my tooth brush..Wishin i was on the road cooking like a food truck.no wishes grantedhate waking up now cus school sucks..  Eyes tearing up.Wish i had some
Water pouring from the sky   Evading our dry space   Wearing down our homes and businesses   Erasing entire landscapes  
i believe that we don't have to listen if we stay strong we can do it.
Your scent is my drug. When I inhale I am brought back to an unreal reality. The way you touch, feel, and sound Comes to me like a car accident on the freeway. Fast, hard, and uncontrollable.  
Oh lift your heads sparrows And sing the a song Let it be marry With a chorus of birds Oh let the notes ring out, echo loud like a gong And do not quit singing Til' everyone has heard
It's a necessity to my life, without it nothing would be right. It brightens up my day, and gets me through the night. Grasping on my hopes and dreams, bringing them to life.
I sit down and get ready. I play one note, then a second, then a third, and then I'm playing the entire song. My fingers glide across the keys of my black and white life.
If I should shed All of these Unnecessary superfluities Let them fall Like plumage Or foliage Or broken links from mail armor If I should slough them off As a viper rips through
At sixteen I knew and at seventeen I fell.   You and I will howl to the moon for every night to come. Pups will weave
Sunny days coming my way up on a daily base.
Sunny days coming my way, up on a daily base.
Blue skies, minds connect, pulling me with you Love is a beautiful thing, that’s true, Like plague filled land - ruin stalks what you do; Filling my heart with emotions of doom.
Now, it may seem a little strange- You’d expect one person, place, or thing. Yet, all I need are words to fill the empty space.   Words have power, much more than you or me;
Sometimes, I just feel alone. Not lonely, I have plenty of family and friends. I just feel an absence. I have this strange sense of seclusion, Like an isolated prisoner. Other times, I feel withdrawn,
Love is purple. It smells like fresh flowers. It tastes like chocolate melting in your mouth. It sounds like a heart pounding. It feels like the warmth from a fire. It looks like a goodbye hug in an airport.
I can hear the clock ticking. My ears are bleeding. I hear your voice in my head. I am choking on my spit and you're snickering. I wish I could hate you. You revel in the blood pouring from my veins.
sometimes i think i can be a poet.i idealize the way a writers words flow and connect with each other,the way their meanings dance with my soul, like wind through hair.
All my heart, With the blood it pumps. All the air, That fills my lungs. They could take it all,
Like a flame in the wind, I've been flickering. But I promise I'll never burn out.

Deep in sorrow she pulled me up from the ground were the tears started to wallow.  She inspired me to be my best at what I choose to do. She's an old spirt but a young soul. She's kind, caring, loving, and most of all crazy in every way.
The automatic sliding doors give a loud smack, Like the sound of a glass jar splintering as it meets hardwood, And Marina jumps, Clutching her handbag to her restarting heart. As she stares down at the worn floor,
She rewards us with a sunny beach day, We repay her by hunting her offspring.  Sooner or later her love will decay,  She'll reject our pitiful offerings.  We call her our mother she gave us birth, 
O America How sweet you are.... How kind and gently you are To represent freedom and equality How just you are O how much mercy To only have built your self from slaves and hypocrisy How just you are
Everything I’ve done must be a joke to you. It has to be. That can be the only reason why you don’t trust in me. You always gloat about how you have helped me and just want the best for me. For once try being honest.
February 5, 1999 My name is Amadou Diallo.   I had just returned home after getting something to eat. Four men in plain clothes slowly drove past me. Parking their car they began to close in.
  home is built upon wood and cracked hearts with doors slamming like gunshots and the dining room tables has been split   home is a funeral in my chest
I tried to hold on sorry I let go, lost my grip hand slipped then I lost all control Anger embarrassed me and it got the best of me
SIN
You were right, In the world's eye Sitting at the height until you die.   See livin' breathin' ain't that simple, Nothing like a clanging symbol. You got to make a choice,
The Dance of Death Death can be the burning day, Death can be the chilling night,    
Oh Love, How pure and true you are, so delicate and unwaivering. As dainty as a rose bud climbing from the embrace of the wet spring dirt. Like the purest of spring water, we taste you and in that moment,
I close my eyes to see a pain that's rooted in my psyche a pain that's like a vine choking out a tree.  Why, I ask, won't this pain leave me. Why, I scream, did he do this to me.  
Seeing you is a bitter-sweet feeling. Bitter is the taste of your carelessness, of your lack of regard for me, your dear friend.  Sweet is the taste of your words, your glances, your secrets.
I have been hiding it for a while, Battling, fighting to win a raging war. I try to hide it with a smile, This predicament I did not predict before. You do not know what I have been through.
One in three adolescents are victims of cyber bullying. Now I don’t mean to belittle, but i’ve never understand cyber bullying because your eyes are your choice and you can turn away.
I clench my fists, Close my eyes, Scrunch my nose, Before I faint And become impervious To the noisy background at hand. Sick. I’m sick; Sick of all the limitations
I was blind and now I see, The best things in life are usually free.  A solution, an advice, not to be your client,  Love and honesty defiantly move in silence. A needle in a hay stack, a problem with no end,
Are you trampled like a rose dying so slowly inside feeeling the chills crawl up your spine carrying the weight of pressure on your shoulders bringing you down so much you lose it
How good is it to be known. Only those who are, feel among. To be important is like to be, on top. A shining star. As most would say, being popular. But what is it really, Isn't just for recognition?
MJ got out again tonight. My dad and brother take off in one direction on the long boards; I walk in the other   And you find yourself in the most peculiar situations.
  I saw you with your new girlfriend a few nights ago.  Your hair was slicked back. You were wearing that tux I picked out for you, the navy one. You seemed to be having a great time.
What to write about love, hate , and all things great What to write about movies, music, sports What to write about cars, buses, planes,and trains What to write about
  The naive daughter of two people who could never decide if they loved each other. A broken marriage.  Calling the wrong faces “friends” and the wrong feelings “love”.
A small sigh escapes my lips. A wisp of steam curling upwards from my hot drink
I am alone. Do you know what it feels like? To be abandoned. I do.My mother didn’t want me. Now, I’m around all these people Who don’t get me. I feel so Alone.  
I don't see the world the way that you do. I see colors and shapes  I see people and places Where others may only see a brick wall Or a fall. I look in the mirror and the shapes spiral out
To know that i miss you so damm mcuh when you leave. To know that i need you ike the air that i breathe. To know hat i want you a passion so blind. To know that i love you with no doubt in my mind.  
I cry so many tears   like silent waterfalls trickling over hard rocks in ponds. I  stop,recover Then go into a deep sleep trying to forget.
They always tell you what you cannot and cannot be, I never focused on them, I focused on me. Yes, maybe I like to read my books instead of party,
Due
I am uncertain, What should I write? My mind, a swirl of thoughts, Each with its own story, Yet I can not choose!   My time is running out, My poem will soon be due,
A piece of clay on the molding board Constructed by the hands of an artist and teacher Purpled by inky fingers I spin in a whirlwind as the wheel rotates
I am like a Tree in the Forest, Like a quiet, swaying tree That starts as a small seed, But grows so slowly, no one notices. It stands tall and firm Against winds and rain, And grows,
Very rarely do we hear about America's First People and our plight: the Native American, American Indian, the Indian, the redskin, the descendants from the Trail of Tears.  We've been called by many names.  But not much is remembered or said in hi
Rhythm; A regulated beat or pattern of sound. But that is not how I roll, that is not who I am. I am wild, irregular even, and nobody can stop that.   My beat drowns out everyone elses,
What is life, is it as big and mighty as the Metropolois, Or is it as miniscule as the ant we tend to trample upon and underestimate What is life, is it as beautiful as a daisy in the summer breeze, 
Your beauty was overwhelming and your smile seductive. The words you used were endearing but destructive. My days with you were fantasies, and now my days alone are torture.
I just wanna say something to ALL women ..  You're beautiful & don't let anyone say different .. You're more fine than a ticket .. Thicker than a snicker.. You walk pass & they all shut it down like crickets..
I just wanna say something to ALL women You're beautiful & don't let anyone say different You're more fine than a ticket Thicker than a snickerYou walk pass & they all shut it down like crickets
This poem is as boring as math class But I really don’t care, This poem is as long as a river, And you may think it’s not fair. This poem is as tiring as a workout, But you really shouldn’t pout.
My vison is not clear. I think about this a lot. Is it fear? Prehaps im over thinking this to much. Faith please give a postive luck touch.   My vison is not clear.
Loved ones are like leaves. The wind may take them away, but beauty will come.
How can I be sure? He says he loves me, but does he truly mean it? How do I know? What is love anyway? Is love the way he holds my hand, or how he says my name?
Why does high school change people? You have kids that are mean to you when you're younger, and you have your friends. Then those friends turn into the mean ones. My parents don't always let me out, I don't know why.
Sleep consume me  into a comatose state of mind
I am from the city of trees I am from family get togethers with evening barbeques roasting lamb kabobs. I am from spending the summer at Grandparents, gaining 10lb eating grandmas delectable cookies.  
In and out like a perfect breeze I seem to be Remember my touch forever on your soul The effects of my presence makes one intoxicated in Hennesy Which leaves one wearing a smile worth Earth's precious gold
I am the wind that sings on Mount Everest's frosty nights I am the joy of mama's dishes The pain of that stings and bites   I am the tears on old men's jaw lines
Through my window  I stare at the night, Watching the blurry Figures pass on by, Illuminated by  Lighning bugs buzzing On the tips of their poles.   People pass on their
Kept me locked up like a wild animal where my only friends were the scars on my hips  and the voices in my head. Telling me all my wrongs  as if I couldn't already see all the sins that lie within me.
I Am Sitting on my bed
I am a listener, Awakening to the sounds of the day, Swaying to the whispering rhythms that no one else can hear, And feeling cool, like in awesome, with goosebumps on my arms.  
Warning: This poem contains explicit words. Fact 1: I have spent £5.87 on self help books Fact 2: I have read 60p worth of these books
Flip the page  To come across a spell Like a mage But spotted about a word of myself dwell I defined as spiffy Being strike as average But on the inside as iffy I can be a bandage
Words, so many words but They can never express fully the feelings that swell inside  threatening to spill out onto the sidewalk who's cement tries to be strong but 
For me there is no other option, But up. Up faster, farther, further. Gripping each branch I propel myself Higher above gravity. Determined to feel the breeze, I climb,
Falling for me is falling for the broken one,
I often dream about my future and I am afraid to see what it will offer, but then I realize that it is all up to me. I decide whether to follow my dreams and hopes or to let them all go and become something I don’t want.
Precipitation descending to the soil. I’m loyal to the Most Royal. Though I fault, my soul’s seasoned with salt, Plus, pepper to deliver letters of encouragement
Deer’s Eyes I sat there on a cool fall day, So much time had passed away. As the sun began to drop for the night, I saw a glimmer of a beautiful sight.
Dear me:

I'm like a pebble I've never been anything more than something as common as that However, it's that very average, common pebble that the not-so-average shoe kicks around.
No matter how many people nod
The sun had risen to the sky
I am who I am A young girl with old ways, deep inside her Beng the only child, the first grandchild, the first niece
  Imitation
love is like a rose when your cut it bleeds like love could feel that pain.
Strange it may not seema bird in a cage,if it could fly it may intervene  
"STOP!!!", The word the soiety says, People are born to be different they say. But when you are, they push you away. Our life is ephemeral so why live not day by day,
2 a.m. caught up in my feelings got your image running through my head flipping through the scenery   lost or lonely  I don't know  can you tell me what I'm feeling  
*/ /*-->*/ The old sweater I hadn't worn in awhile –

Everyone is unique in their own way, But I; dear Reader, strive for it. The Past shapes us and develops us, Like a teacher does to a student. If we grow up in a broken home, We grow old in a solid haven.
I met a boy on the outskirts of campus, playing a game of frisbee.   his eyes shined like oceans shimmering in the very depths of the beauty in  the place mermaids call home.

My soul Is like a polaroid: Something beautiful waiting to happen, But turned dark When exposed to the world
I am a six year old, sitting watching cartoons with a yogurt in my hand Crying because her chest hurts, Mommy's panicked and she doesn't understand Laying on a hospital bed while Daddy rustles my hair
The rich are the popular The popular are the elite The elite are the privileged They have no passion to succeed   To be in the aristocracy I wanted for myself before
Cold piece of steel on hip, full clip Got the gloc in grip, ready to spit bit down on my lip to see if it was real, but I couldn't feel it
I have seen the Rainturn out to be a Small Streamwhich sailed paper boat,gave a lot of joy. A flock of birds chirpinghad make worried and happy
I am Paper If simplicity is beauty and bliss, complexity is just as alluring
I just want to feel loved and needed. Day by day these wants are being buried right along with my heart. I suppose I'll still do for you/ only to be screwed in the end by you. Love is being lost and forgivness is nowhere to be found.
Even though tainted by the world like a smokers lungs Our mind yet retains a small fickle light
Even though tainted by the world like a smokers lungs Our mind yet retains a small fickle light That light is multifariousness such as flowers in the Keukenh garden Time will pass Our light will fade
Somehow out of this bright, illuminated room a fog began to seep in. It began like a low, slithering snake, then rose up and swallowed the space whole. I couldn’t see, I couldn’t hear.
There is so much to do but so little time. You could find what you've lost; you could lose what youv'e found. But only you can deicde what is good for you to hold on to.
Like a Pringles can, Except it holds our refuse. God bless these great things.
I felt so hurt inside I didn't know whether to live or  die never smiled because all I did was cry As I let your abusive words eat into my soul I thought how can a person be so cold ?
I have never been the most wanted; the slim-figured prom queen who has left many boys brokenhearted. I haven't been brought flowers or teddy bears I can't fit through my door frame.
People are interesting: are they not? You may never agree completely and sometimes not at all They are always changing. Because most people are dynamic beings, not static beings,
Underwater
I keep running from my fears, Torwards my happiness. Blocking out the bad, And absorbing the bliss.  Putting up a wall when I meet people, So I won't get heartbroken.
I have lived a live of turbulence
Oh geez I made your face red again And made the blood rush up to your ears Your body heat begging to be cooled by normalcy Invisibility And I get excited Ah, your fingers are trembling again
I am like a piece of fine china-- I was born perfect; no chips, no scratches, perfectly beautiful. my colors were once vibrant and bright and everyone adored my newness.
I feel so alone
In shards, we are Broken pieces of glass Scattered to the wind   Like windows, you can see right through us Bur mirrors, our reflection does not show We are diamonds with high class taste
  The phrase, “I am bored”, little do I know, It’s the condition which afflicts the majority of our very own, A precarious ailment that seems to never let go, But can indeed be overthrown
I
What is your Anthem? How do you convey it? To scream and shout at the top of you lungs  Or to quietly sing it to yourself To rebel against labels Or to embrace the perks of it When the lines blur,
My words are 
Smiles bright as the sun, Laughter loud as a lion's roar, Memories burned into my brain, The warmth of their presence, Intensifyng with every second.   Those smiles are wondrous,
Sometimes we hold on to our failures and depressing past, And allow those events to define our untrue, discontent character. Beaten, battered, and treated like an outcast, Left to battle the war as a lone challenger.
  Wonder. We are full of wonder. We wonder how, We wonder when, We wonder why.   This sense of wonder Keeps us alive, Keeps us curious, Keeps us asking questions.  
The calm before the storm The rainbow directly after The way people can come togeter Followng a disaster   A sunset that marks the end of another day - Something that should be sad
Eyes. The pathway to the mind. The gateway to the soul. The eyes never lie When your heart has bullet holes. Brown, blue, green Maybe a jumble of all three.

There’s an abandoned lot beside my bus stop, a barren block of concrete vacated after floodwaters swept the local businesses away I’ve crossed this lot for years, at dawn with puffy red eyes and midnight with blisters on my feet

Life is awesome… Whether you’re a flower ready to blossom Or a man waking up to a “good morning!” Why do we humans ever have mourning? When the birds are permitted to fly, We humans are free to question why.
   This world, the crime, my life is a fight.
Her
Her, How her smile is so bright her heart so mellow arms keep me warm at night sunny like the sun thats yellow the way her hair sways as she walks in the room ill be with her always
"A Villanelle with Initiative" Look at the rising sun, Kissing the earth with rays, Who will I be when it’s done? Calm and pure as a nun, Mature beyond my days, Look at the rising sun.
I can see it now. My best friend will sit beside me in her chair, rocking as we laugh about past mistakes, screaming at children to get off the lawn. She has never had a boyfriend, as if she recognizes
When I want a new experience,   When I want to be captivated,   When I want to be taken somewhere,  
It takes a storm to clear out all the rain, It takes time to heal a little pain. Sometimes the good times only last for a sec',
I bought a nice new pair of cotton sheets this week to replace my old pilled polyester sheets.

"Butterflies are a sign from God," she said, with no devotion to a diety of her own. "It means things are or will be okay," her grandfather used to say. I saw a butterfly today. It fluttered past and around,
i don't want to be a piece of art 
My days aren't always great, but when they are, it's very sunny. Sometimes I may run late and have to hop to it like a bunny. But boy you should know that my life is crazy awesome
The big red horse Walks up to the gate, A spring in her step, Blaze bright on her face.   As they wait for the cue, Her muscles tense up. She stares through the gate
In seeing a fly there are two paths you can take: you become susceptible to its nuisance and strike with no motive, or you can simply ignore its annoyance.
Humanity at heart lyes in the soil, better known as mother earth.She keeps us alive and well as long as we abide by the laws of nature.
I am a man of integrity, A man of honor and character. I am a man who will fight for you, And with you But never against you. I am a man who will open doors, But not close them.
You are a liar You told me later but later never came
I think you all know this, To God we do belong, To him we depend, Let him be your friend, For he is always there for you.
Laying on the floor At the bottom of a pit Created in my mind All the light drained from the world.   A rope fell to the bottom Brushing my hand Begging me to grab on.  
Drama, Horror, Mystery, Children, Romance, History Any genre of book is interesting, Some even include audio for listening As you read, your imagination comes to life
There is a boy, He sits in the corner And says nothing. He does speak what he feels For fear they will strike him down. They will call him names. Fag. Gay they will call him
I wither my life on a deserted island, Accursed to spend eternity awaiting a stray hero[1] ! A hero who will use me, and a man who will abuse me
The awesome part of my life, No, it's not about me getting a wife, But about my dream to become a chef, Yet i have some time left. Ive always aspired to be a smart man,
Being black is like a lone woman in a dark alley at night
To my dearest best friend,   People don't expect a guy and a girl to "just" be friends. When it comes to us, the rule bends. We understand eachother like a well-known riddle. From the outside, to the middle.
Life is as AMAZING as an OCEAN wave, How the waves glisten over the horizon of the sun,
            A daughter depends on her mom like a soldier depends on his men,             When she stumbles and falls, her mother is always there;             She will grasp her hand, and guide her through rough waters,
Fluttering, Floating, Falling Pink Petals in summer's day breeze Glancing, Prancing, Dancing, The bright, sunny day to seize.
She is soft, like the slow kiss of a crisp autumn night, yet strong, like the determined root of a beautiful cherry tree
I lay in bed,
The epitome of selflessness dogs see past imperfections. If you need them theyll be there with unlimited affection. For pooches love us more than themselves. In exhange for a loving home, for simply being treated well.
You were the rose, but with thorns, One touch and I bled,
Pain, pain, so easy to feel, so easy to see
 
Life is hard. Sadness, frustration, anger, and stress These emotions are what I know best.
Within yourself are the values of life, Where sometimes you reign or may go through the struggle and strife. The power within you, you must fight every day, Keep your head up and avoid disarray.
Waking up in the morning to that yellow ball of fire is like dreadful confidence to get up. It gives you hope by letting you know its not to late to find "that something".
His world was finite, With colors of yellow, green, and orange And a little bit of brown. His world was speckled on all sides of him; All three sunset walls. The only variable was at the zenith,
Every now and then, you find yourself in day dream thinking about the days to come At any moment life could start, in contrast it could all be done Days passing like a freight train carrying time you can never get back
Let's see, me trying to write this sonnet. Nope, not going to happen, not at all, Looking for inspiration on the wall. I have written three lines! Nope, forget it.   This is going to make me throw a fit.
Developing movements from the tip top of your head Attached to the sound that makes your body move like a thread Never stopping, never dead Captivated by the lyrics being said
I stare out of the window  whispering to the lonely midnight  "Why me??" It was my 8th grade year  When I  died,Not on the outside but the inside Because I was called a Nerd,Dork 
I' am not a poet. Yes I make music and im on iTunes and Spotify, but, I' am not a poet. I feel as if I am famous and I can travel the world, but, I' am not a poet.
With a little bit of hope, Anyone can make a change. Anyone can learn to cope, To what life may bring us.   A slice of friendship, Will let robins defeat sharks. None can stop hope,
Black skin
Titanix By: the dog It's sad cuz my favorite movie is the titanic. Because I like to think that I'm a hopeless romantic. I cut lose and open the schematics to my heart.

With words
  Missing you like the stars hitting the morning sky; but I never compare myself to the last guy. I believe everything; Everything you've done from the beginning.
If you see me as I see myself, Then I’m so sorry. A constant cry for affection Can make you deaf, you know. If you see me as this world does, Why, that may be even worse. The darkness in their hearts
Yet the things that i love
Mother, mommy, how wonderful you are.You’re definitely the one I adore.
As time passes by I sit and wonder
The day I first met you, I will never forget It was a chance encountering Not one I did expect   To me you were nothing, A rumor, a myth, To me in my world You never did exist.
Stages of Eternity By: Carly Hufford   Countless light bulbs with iridescent hopes lighting the dim night, reminding me to live is to soar beyond the scrapes the pavement gives me. “Mama,
  There is nothing more Extraordinary
Life is something that you should make awesome No matter what harsh things may come your way Like a sleepy sloth, it can be tiresome But all the negative thoughts you have, you should slay!  
I didn’t take that razor To end my life Or to show the world How unhappy I was
I was glowing and I was beautiful, 
Walking down the street Looking for something I don't know Why don't you try looking for it yo As long as you don't steal my flow
They put a bullet in his head while his hands up    Said he refused to stand down   Everybody thinking just for them to man up   They gotta put a man down

        Losing isn't defeat, defeat is when you give up.            Losing is momentum, to win the next.           So when you are unsuccessful, don't give up.    
Lost and insecure  You found me  Flooded with pain  It's driving me insane  My life's ticking like a clock  Moving like a snail over a stick I have to stop myself 
Spring is like new beginnings Like new shoots, leaves and blossoms Like fire melting a world of ice Chirping birds seeking worms Like hearing nature come alive
When next you cross that road,
I Swear
What is my story, you ask? Not one that can be covered by a mask. It involves venturing into the dark ocean Looking towards a better future with devotion.
Coerced merely by exterior attributes and perishable riches we as humanity have taken away our ability to decided; capabilities to love and ways to teach.
          Behind the Mask
  My closet is full of blue, with a few olive greens thrown in for contrast, but my favorite color is orange.  Not the florescent kind but peachy orange of a sunset in winter Orange that streaks the skies
All eyes are on me, my knuckles start to bleed. I scraped them on the desk, my mind is a jumbled mess. They asked me what I'd want to change about myself,
Descartes' famous words,     "Cogito ergo sum." I think, therefore I am.  In my mind's eye, I think that children are born pure white. I was, at one point in time.
I am not perfect. Me, a girl with freckles that appear all over my body, 
My words, rearranged to please a society that can never be pleased. Pleasing a society where others rather see you begging for help than see you succeed. My mind stays busy like a hive full of bees.
The moon is a symbolDespite the darkness, somewhere out there is our source of light
Wow is all I have to say After seeing cast a way poetry is a way to vent mom needs help with paying rent Everything I say is real  words display the way I feel Writing trying not to flip

The veil has been lifted the masquerade is over; Alone I have prevailed                       
People are like puzzles, sort of, in a way… They are made of many pieces, a patchwork of character, experiences, feelings Like a quilt or a farming valley, so different and unique
We’re all artists, painting ourselves the way we want to be seen. We have our distorted self-portraits on display to the world, but we rarely let authenticity slip through.
She's unique and delicate as a flower, Not so much like a Gerbera, but more like an Orchid. Her dark almond eyes penetrate your soul in just a glance,
I am flawed I am broken Who knows this? One look in my eyes and you can figure this I give this token One which is my heart My eyes hold more than my soul
Middle School began smooth,
They say I have big eyes So I can see truth through your lies They say I have big lips So I can speak my mind
Four letters carry conspiracy-theory sized opinions of a word that we hope exists. a word universally intertwined in our bones pulsing through our spirits and sidewalks. a word hidden in the most common places
I go about my life busy like an ant on a hill, but one day I stopped and decided to chill. I found if I listen, it's not that difficult, I could find some peace that wasn't invisible.
Roses are red Violets are blue My name is Nick But for some odd reason Some call me Nickypoo  
Who am I? Do YOU know?
Everything is going just right, so far in my life.  I was born on March 19,1997 Unfortunately, December 29,2005, when I was almost 9, my grandmother died. And went back to heaven.
I am calm like the river gently flowing knowing fairly well where I'm going. I am free like a bird flying overhead but not so free as to choose when I'm dead. I am small but I can make an impact
Nature consumes every part of her being; filling every square inch of the body with natural entities.
In my own skin I am me Its hard to accept, hard to see Day in and day out I'm told differently That everyone should accept the beauty I must be My skin holds a story That can not be explained
Life glows in your eyes, Life as bright as the stars.   As I hold you in my arms, I'm in awe at the miracle you are.   Because you're as perfect as a person could be,
Every word that he spoke dripped from his tongue like a melting popsicle as I was left to try and mop up the puddle. He was a 1000-piece puzzle, a puzzle I convinced myself I could single-handedly solve.
Permanent scars penetrate the soul As eyes stare into the overcast world outside these wretched walls Screams build up inside the mind but never enough to break through the armored body
  Memories are a part of me, They drift apart from me. So many thoughts, just like my old matchbox cars, Simpler times---remember pogo sticks and toy guns,
                                                                       “Crown Me”……. by Colbin Hubbard Who am I? Oh not to you, Your opinion doesn’t define me.
    Who’s to say that who I am is wrong?
With out a filter My eyes are a pair of c list stuntmen Imperfect but BoldMy nose is large But has potential that is quite undersold My lips are doors that are blocked by the ruins of broken pride
Mirrior, mirrior on the wall who's the fakest of them all? With the title of fairest claimed My true identity has long been chained My voice no longer has meaning It counts for nothing 
A poem written for people who are tired of being labeled.  
Looking into that silver has never felt like gold.   In fact it is more like looking at an empty galaxy
I saw your smile falter as you stared into my eyes you pretended to see the stars and skies you pretended you never told me lies  
Following what society thinks is right I try to alter my camera light. This will create the most optimal picture, And allow me to avoid the tedious stricture. Pictures are only one side of me, 
In the unchecked corner There is a darkness that thrives. It lies, and bides its time Slowly consuming our lives.   The "weak" and the "cowards"
Slowness and patience is what makes you
Flying Lotus fills the cavity
Walking down the street, life moves slowly As I run into people and fall onto the rough concrete. Bitter voices and yelling catch my attention, But the powerful wind propels me into dangerous roads.  
People like to talk about how other people are instrumental in the world. They call their friends imporant "elements" of life, which has always interested me. In fact, if people are elements, 
Handsome, clean-cut, a rather dapper young man, Smart, cool and calm. Looking my best at all times, I keep a nice, fresh, haircut with an awesome line-up. I'm a young black man only portraying himself,
Some may think I'm happy and fun, carefree and patient although I'm none. The guy with the oh so perfect world, school, the family, and the girl. But underneath that smooth exterior, lies a broken man growing wearier.
she was always afraid of falling in love
Defined like a line I am straight forward drawn for a purpose. I have a direction a meaning. Defined like a line There are no sounds when a pen hits the paper quiet is my serenity.
No makeup. There's a bump here and there, blackheads and redness, and pores that I wish were smaller. My hair down. It's curly and imperfect, It's way too short and thin in the front. My stomach and thighs
Our playpens are coliseums
This glass house i live in protects me i see all that  happens outside but yet it still does not affect me i see playful birds i join in song but in their trees i dont belong, and the storms no matter  will never be able to hurt
I am a creature of heaven and earth, A creature, a feature of the world since birth.   Feathered like the robin who's song generates Such wonder to the ears in its undulating course.
What is life? is it a thing or is it a given blessing? There are so many questions in the world. How do you know what is the answer to the question?
Lost Like A Grain Of Salt In A Sandstorm. Living Life Without Proper Purpose. Staring Into A Reflection And Seeing The Unknown.
Like a drug store cassette I was blank, mummified
Powerful and Strong, She controlled the room. She was Queen of her audience,
There’s something
Broad shoulders, But not broad enough. Can't carry those burdens as big as boulders.  
A mere whisper whose mind is as loud as roaring thunder whose thoughts are jumbled with black and white, no grey, has big dreams that knows she should be afraid of but is ready to conquer them, that is I.
When I think of you,
Like chocolate in the sun, the wise are melting away And those that are left are invisible during the day It seems as if I am of the last few left Since the world is a map, my life is a quest
I had one of those dreams last night; One where the wind sings a song made just for us. We danced 'til the act was unbearable, And wore smiles til they were unwearable; Our pitiful, melancholy groove,
People say that I'm nice because I am generous My friends say that I'm fun because I'm adventurous But it takes more than two characteristics to be flawless To be flawless you have to be blessed
I was taught since birth,Trained like a circus animal,To focus only on my flaws,Ache over every splintered quality,And strive for perfection.  
The pen is my compass The paper my sail They take me to new places On a see of words and dreams
Hey girl, I can see from a distance that your name should be diamond
what is perfection? what does flawless mean? Some would have you believe it is the way you look They want you to submit to the media's view of beauty
When life leaves me with an overwhelming day, I close my eyes and to Him I pray. I put my trust in Him, for I know Hes there.
Disarmed of all the constructed pride Once carefully built like a house of cards The creature flows naked with nothing to hide Growing tentacles extending towards stars Unknown and alone even with one of its kind
Her clear water vision, Something so honest and true, Her eyes quite the sight to see, Only the bluest of the blue.   Blue eyes widened, As she stepped through the door,
I was 4 when I held my brother in my arms with a grin on my face
I'm worth more than a thousand sunswashing away at the darkness of those around memy voice blooms roses with the way my wordsgrow thorns yet project passionate beauty.
It disturbed the surface of your atmosphere,
We all i heard of a Ram pushing a big boulder out its way, but do we know why? is it because it proud of it powers or is it's trying to give a heads up to the other rams not to be mess with.

We all have dreams, though most seem to never prosper We all are sinners, nothing can save this gospel The pigs we gobble, the devil we follow, the poisons we swallow, all lead to evil bethrothals
The smile you see is uniform Underneath lies pain & anguish Fears of tomorrow Yesterday's sorrow   Path seems forever unknown Feelings frozen like stone A painted picture of happiness
I like it when it rains it's the world telling you that you are not the only one who feels this way that sometimes the world is sad too.  
Nature is a mystery, but I am unique. The world spins around in an orbit, but my head spins through imagination of wild stories. Out of boredom, the weather becomes a hectic storm,
INTRODUCTION
Jonny's something flawless. Cause I'm not falling I'm the opposite of August. Nothings stopping profit from residing in my pocket Sike, I'm broke as pasta before diving in its haunt of hot water
There are 7,289,823,512 people that I'm- stealing from, sharing with, against, along, trying to please.
Paint me red for all the lovethat I have on the inside and around me.Paint me green for the evil of moneyand watching my baby girlgrow up like a tree.
To have 
My flawless imperfections were made by God rigid skin, like the after effect of lightning versus a rod a black heart was made darker by man the kick start to life, man will not understand
She looks in the mirror Seeing the burning pit of sadness Within her blue soul.   The fire is bright Dominating everything. Every thought.  
there's something so very strangeabout having to rearrangethe thoughts inside my headin order to go to bedbecause i just want to sleepbut my brain wants one more peepand, Lord, here's my soul to keep
When people look at me, I don't know what they see. But whatever they do, It probably is not true. The girl deep inside is wanting out of this prison. She is on an endless mission
The painful words escape her lips Piercing my fragile heart with every word she utters I try to not show the pain but every now and then I slip
I sat and watch the stars above How gracious how belove The nature and the love The earth is full of beauty, With nature unity What a blessed creativity
My hands are clutching my hair I’m trying not to swear Nothing is working out I’m going to shout Everything’s going wrong I just wanted to belong Why can’t they understand?
Scars on my hands from the kitchen knife mishap,  cat-related incidents like claw marks or the time the cat food 
Blue eyes and auburn hair. Does anybody really care?
I used to form myself with the clay of others Building myself based of other people’s ideas I was a baby, with society as my mother   Now I face the reality If I go through life hiding behind a mask
I'm the seeker  I'm the first blood-line mute  watch these people hide there problems in these high security coops I see the things their to afriad to reconize  I'm the beacon we all seach for 
Mama I love you more than any other on Earth. No matter who came I always felt first. To you, I am a blessing and never will be a curse. No matter how wrong, You never changed my worth.
From our view the moon goes into secrecy almost every month; it simply makes itself invisible to or eyes, but it always comes back; the moon aways ends its secret ventures. Maybe we are sometimes like the moon,
My thighs expand the length of continents But the breasts I was given cannot be confused with mountains My hazel eyes ooze the color of a muddy emerald sea But the pores on my face are often compared to broad craters
A sapling stands in the forest,
 
A singer stands behind the dark cloud of a curtain, waiting for her call. Her body tense with anticipation, excitement and dread blow over her like the angry wind before a storm.
Like a sunflower, I am growing.  As a child I was a like a seed, 
Myself: who am I? Should that be a question or an affirmation? Who I am... is wonderful. I cannot be anyone but myself.  It is funny to wake up every morning being the same person...
Every day i try my best not to procrasinate sometimes it seems that it is faith. Somedays it is not as bad and some days are sraight up sad. It always strikes with no holding back as if  it loves to attack.
Lonely nights sitting in my room
I am soft as sand Harder than stone Prettier than a princess  Ugly as beast I am me A little insecure but somehow managing to pull off confidence Shy Yet funny 
"I am no bird," That's what she told me. "no net ensares me." Those words are true.    You strived to be more than a bird, but, You found yourself caught,  defensless, trapped.  
When I feel like I've made a bad decision Like giving too much of myself Or taking advantage of someone else Poetry replenishes me. When I do things that cause me to feel empty I write, and my words heal me
I will take hundreds before I find the perfect one. It is imperative to pick the correct filter. It needs to make me look tanner while also concealing the bags under my eyes.  
I am not interested in being seen as ugly as a flea-ridden rat or as attractive as a shiny pearl, And I care not for taking "selfies" or using social media to acquire friends or followers.
My eyes decieve me like an illusionist decieves his audience. The slight of hand producing questions no mere mortal can answer. This magical state of mind driving a wedge through reality like a knife.
True Love I remember growing up wondering where true love lies Believing the things of the world that was truly a lie Fame, fortune, and power soon came to thought
Let the music play... To end the illusions of... Pride that cometh before the- Fear like a snake consuming itself,
She knocks on my door and asks me to come out. “No,” I answer, but it’s not my voice talking, it’s his. Raising my 6 year old niece has not been easy, given I’m also raising a young man. His name is Depression.
I walk the halls among 3
I arise with the sun, and shake free my wild mane.
If people only realized this is as loud as I can be I won't bray like a donkey just so you can hear me. Just because I'm not boisterous and annoying Dosen't mean I'm also always boring.
My kind have been here longer than most. We are warriors, Nobility by deed. Worshipped for our beauty and strength,
Flawless, how you wake up. Or Flawless, putting on your makeup. flawless, getting clothes for ten dollars or twenty. Still flawless getting Prada purses by the many. Flawless, depicted as how you are seen.
The walls are not as strong as they appear,  Flawed with cracks and thin as paper.  Exuding strength, they ward off anyone who is near. What looks like stone is only vapor. The smile that shines is genuine,
Will I see you
I am a goddess A creation so divine that - galaxies will swirl in my veins- black and blue like a brusie so freshly wrought that the tinges of purple seem to darken the hues
life is a bleesing but life aint fair blows from each direction put a knife right here dreams aint distant but they dont seem near so the first we gotta do is face our own fears
Do you know how hard it is to find a gem that is truly completely flawless? Why do
Beauty lies within me, No filter aka "No Filly",
A butterfly flies into the blue sky.
Do You Ever ?   Do you ever wonder where the moon goes when the sun comes up?Does it disappear or is it just hidden?  
Growing up I would always let people push me around, But now I never even get close to the ground, I'm flying.
I’m not one who has an alter ego,a lie people create when they’re feeling shallow,an ideal to covet and try to uphold,when in reality they are much less bold.  
Head to Toe Where No one knows the real story of your soul, They see your hair and when They stare,  They seem to care Care too much of how You look. They think they'll read you like a book.
An artist at heart can be the windAlthough people cannot see the strands of a breezeThe soft blows can still be felt against one's skin
Turn, turn, turn the pages
Every girl dreams of the perfect life, Getting paid to smile or being a trophy wife. I think we want it easy, but that is not our call, We want to erase any chance that we may fall.
Me on the edge, academics were on a ledge. No longer the excuses, education all wins no losses. My visions of success were clouded by stress. I needed a motivational asprin to ease me on my test.
If I May… You’re the friend that I care for, And support every step of the way.
I hated school, now I realize that I am a fool. All I went there for was to see my friends, I had to know the latest trends. I didn't want to wake up on time, but now, i don't possess so much as a dime.
Our youth seems to be caught up in a rapture, where Perfection is the bind Daring to Be Flawless. Outer beauty, wealth and name brand clothes
  I am like a banshee wailing desperately in warning, whose call is heard but never heeded;   The tide, who forever grows in courage,
Quaint is the old banter About the immortal lantern Sitting omnipotent on this constantly withering earth Along the geranium-colored hearth Speaking to the dusky night As breath leaves the nest
A selfie should be a self portrait of the real you. No need for a filter, it's just a glimpse of someone you wish you knew. Natural beauty comes from the person within... So why add a color to the wonderful skin you're in?
heat sweat bloody noses.  
The heart is like a breathing storm, a galaxy Filled with colliding constellations and black holes of life,
My sound? Is a silent night, I have no music no beats, or rhythem. My sound? Crickets on a summer day. When I was born they sang. My sound? Is a soft noise
The radiant one who shines like he's flawless Head held high manner was lawless Born an expert others left seemed novice Mistaken for ground beef because of my rawness Its eloquence
A mind as vast as the universe, Can get lost in the depths of time. But pause, Look around at your company, For the stars will be your guide.
People judge me how they see me Sometimes I am a turtle taking life slow I am who I am not who people want me to be Though hurt I don't let my emotions show   I'm like a beaver trying to make it on my own
We fly on a scope and hope for a better future with that one person we love the most. Like a wedding
Sometimes I wish I was like the storm and the wind, Never stopping, passing past everything -- once -- and moving on. Sometimes I wish I was like the snow and the rain, Falling softly, wildly, blindly, freezing, wetting.
Flawless The word with many meanings meanings that vary from person to person whether it is based upon beauty or the way you act around people, my definition is different
A natural-born leader A teacher, A mentor, An instructor, Someone to count on. I have been called these things since I was young Teaching my younger brother Spelling, Piano,
Simple and Nice Is what others see. A shy little girl; That's displayed through me.   Quiet and calm; Like an ocean sea. You might even hear waves, If you listen closely.  
Its another night I wake up in cold sweat, I rember how youd bring the sunshine so bright so full of life i always thought you'd be my wife now i see you not so far away with someone new when you left me with broken promises while my heart turns
Friends can makes you laugh and make you vdy They are awesome people that help you up They can be a pain and can be a blessing You can rely on them always Just like the moon relys on the sun to shine
I am a red headed girl,with a freckled face,  I wear shoes that have no lace. I do not curse and  swear That's mean as a bear, Jesus is my light in a dark path, He has blessed me with math.
why must we constently care  about what others share  care about what others think always uploading social media links wanting you to feel so small so nothing about me will matter at all
So I just did a spoken word poetry today during Sunday Service and guess what? It was bad, literally bad. Bad from the compostion to the articulation of thoughts to the actual voicing out of the words.
Who needs all of these filters and cameras? I simply use my eyes for life's wonderful panorama, Hashtag this, hashtag that, I'm too skinny, I'm too fat. You are what you perceive yourself to be,
lie
Lie
our world today is harsh, we are left with blood and scars. because someone hurt us in our past, and we thought we would never last but here we are standing stronger than the u.s army ready to fight.
Perfect, flawless, ethereal. These words, when assigned to one human being, banish the rest to a mediocre Tartarus,
Life is a wonderful gift. To often though we begin to drift. Materialism captures our lives. We forget who we are and strive to be rich. All too suddenly life crashes down like a giant avalanche.
You act so tough, You act so brave. But really, you are the empty beer bottles that you used to hide.   you couldn't face the world with who you really were. you had this foundation
Always balance above an Angel; She can Dazzle us. Observe old Grace, And know the Demands. You will model Success. Break free your Talent; See only Potential. Preform through Passion.
Flawless me? Couldn’t be. That’s a funny thought. Well, then again…still, no:   I speak in a squeaky key, My voice gets easily caught, I refuse to slow   I take everything too seriously,
I stand before you today With a confession Oh, but I don't know what I want to say
Swimming is fun, Until you start drowning  Life is like swimming under the ocean 
I have many names.Some call me Aphrodite or Venus,But you know me as Beauty. Don’t listen to what others say.I am not vain,Only aware I am what God wanted in Eden.Am I wrong for enjoying what I was handed?
I don't like that there's no mail on Sunday's. Every day you go to your mailbox Finding magazines and letters and everything in between.
To be honest,  Society, It's the worst, And it's the best.
  To outsiders I’m just a simple, plain wallflower. But if you look a little closer, beyond the closed off petals you’ll see that each petal tells a story with a little bit more power.
Bare feet. I'm not bare feet, but I love bare feet. My bare feet that is. I love the feeling of my 
I am not going to give a sob story I am not going to give a glory story I do not have any horror stories to give But if you look into my heart you will see the only story I live You will see who I am
"The Door
The pressure to meet the mark of a standard that is ever heighteningAnd never compromisingIs seemingly an everlasting presence that can either be disregardedOr
I often wonder how I got here  
                                   
I walk the halls with a mask on my face, I adjust my smile, and alienate myself from their world, Headphones in tow, I’m just another face you see in the halls,
Today the world seems incomplete,
Change I was a powerless scared little boy I remember seeing my parents fighting I heard yelling, screaming, and cursing I saw tears bursting on my mom’s face like fireworks burst into the sky
My best friend never tried to change me She only amplifies  my love,  my passions,  my spirit. She brings out the  best in me. When my world is  crashing down 
A million stars up in the sky one shines brighter I can't deny A love so precious a love so true a love that comes from me to you The angels sing when you are near within your arms I have nothing to fear 
People are not much different than seasons,
At the end of the day I reach for my face and my worn out mask comes off to reveal. My true skin,
  How can a mouth be so encomiastic? ...Yet fickle
Traveling companionless through the dark snow  Lonely as a ghost wondering around A black chasing shadow continues to follow A huge treasure that can never be found Loud laughs can be heard from far away
I am a dog But not any dog
NO one can change me, not the way that I think, the way that I act, or the way that am. No one can change that I been brought to this world as a king and will live on my thrown.
I'm hollow, never unbroken. 
What is to Live? Is to Live my scucess? Is to Live my failures? Is to Live to try and learn it all? What are my footsteps, what are the words that I speak into existence before me?
     
Can you see the madness behind my eyes 
    Religion in School, one way to be treated a fool. Don’t share your religion with us we don’t care. Told to kids throughout the year.
A smile is not an invitation.    A young girl, only eleven years old Far too young to become a damaged good.  There was no screaming or shouting that day, 
I've been stupid I've been hurt I've been stabbed in the back But am still standing And I've cried And I've pleaded On my knees Yes am still standing I've been in pain
the beat of my heart, like the beat of a drum the world goes numb i aim, take my dart and hope i pin u and win ur love
The sun stands strong everyday,
What is good luck without there being bad luck? How can we see a rainbow without the cloud-darkened sky? How could the stars shine like diamonds without the blanket of night?
Remember when we fell in love?
As water gushes down the rocks, never can a tree nor dam hinder its path.
I was misguided. My demons would taunt me. Convince me to wander on countless occasions. I'd roam around until they'd finally attack. They always did and always do, as soon as they see their chance. They feed on any sign of weakness.
They make me happy. How they sparkle and shine, A golden brown, Like the rays of the sun. You make my heart melt. Your eyes so beautiful, I can't control myself. Your eyes so beautiful,
My mask is more like makeup. I don't hide behind an imitation, there is no shell. I conceal. I hide the blemishes, blend them into the background. I love to win, but no one sees how much I hate to lose.
Theres an artist behind this Idiot Theres an Ocean beneath this pool and it's full of sharks I present a calm surface because no one can fathom the depth and once they stick a toe in and realize there is no bottom
Brock Light broken glass everyone makes mistakes it gives people pains, and aches.
im sorry if i made u blue all your life im sorry for your life im sorry for you  do you forgive me im sorry about your life
What is a friend? If you are unsure, I can tell you more? Friends are not selfish This I can say for certain My Friends are not the normal type They are loud, proud, black and bright
Life is full of challenges.
Orange, red, yellow, brownFalling from aboveBlowing over townLike the travels of a doveLeaf piles galoreTaken by the breezeSpread onto the floorMess taken with ease
I have classified myself as an independent person Until I found this. It is called many things, but I call it choir. The lessons I have learned are abundant
Oh no! The words flew from the mouths of bystanders seeking the cause of the accident. Not me. The bitterness of my salty tears flowed down my face like a thunderstrom swirling in my soul. Not emotional tears. Laughing tears.
Life is a fresh loaf of bread A thin layer of butter Melts into the rounded top, Strengthening its savor. The outside is crisp             But not too hard The salty inside
It’s hard to imagine where I’d be
Little dreamer,
I dreamed a dream of a little girl in a yellow dress She was dancing with the white roses Her feet running gaily Her arms twirling as if she was a ballerina She turned to smile at me….
