As I look into the world, there is so much that I can change.
A thing to change is such a task So bring a range to pulp the mass Of things so twisted and bent to shape, That Candyland may seem so straight.
Self-built walls, inside she sits Keeps fresh a wound not allowed to heal Tells the lies to create a shield
What would I change? The violence portrayed in video games. The numbness to a gun and blood. The unneccesary gruesomeness. What would I change? The bullying toward children.
A simple corner seat With a cold facade And a flimsy spinal support. Bolted to the distressed floor. Meeting on a whim In the middle of December On a rickety old train
I want to wake up Not having to remind myself of the past I want to fall asleep quickly Without battling with the devils poking at my mind I want to see my mother smile
Self Centered I'd change My ability to deal with the face in the mirror the thoughts simmering behind it the fumbling half-formed passions waiting to be found.
To be in a world with over flowing judgement makes one cover up who they really are.
If I could change anything, What would it be? It's the way my generation has turned out In this crazy, twisted society. I look around the classroom feeling so disgusted. Wishing I could move away...
We as humans go about our day, simply living our lives
Hurtful words behind her back, screaming those words that they can't take back. And finally when she can't take it anymore, she grabs her razor and locks her door. Cries as she fails again,
Povery, war, hatred, greed. Smiles fade as does bliss In this life today, it is all we see. If only I had one wish. When tears outweigh the fall of rain And the act of smiling becomes a myth,
You know what's crazy? Slavery. It's not okay that freedom is only for those born free, those born rich, those born with a silver spoon between their blood-red lips,
What would most people change if they could? Their appearance. No one ever fits the standards. She's never pretty enough. He's never masculine enough. He isn't a good enough athlete.
We look in each others’ eyes, uncomprehending, we don’t seem to realize— strip the details and what remains? we are the same. Society is machinery, and we all have our place,
I don't like being laughed at, or pushed down anymore than the next person. But I can honestly say... I'm used to it. So... I'm okay. You see, I've been around long enough to know that it's a cycle.
if i was able to change one thing, i would probably change dealing with people in the morning at school. I am NOT a morning person, and i get irritated very easily during the a.m.
All we need is love,
I would not change my bue eyes, or freckled cheeks I would not change my broad shoulders or big white teeth I would not change my wheight I love me, I am great. I would not change the past
You see the world, yet you ignore
everyone, listen up, wake up, sit up.Put on your make up.Scratch that, who needs that shit you are pretty enough without it.Not many girls can see that today, instead they are pasting urban decay
To do what has not been done, To try to help or try anew. Will you climb the tallest mountain Or try your hand at swordsmanship, Maybe grant the needy a supple wish? Will you survive and fly,
