love you God, you make me strong. God is my bedrock under my feet, the castle in which i live, he makes me rest in the night. My God to whom i run for my dear life from a hostile world, hiding behind thy borders where i am saved
Breaking bad habits is difficult, it’s irritating. You wince every time You bite your nails again Procrastinate again Sleep in again And every time
If you had stayed away I might have made it Through all the twisting turns of adolescence A little bruised and bloody, But mostly unscathed. But if you had stayed away, I wouldn't know how to fight.
I refuse to accept "I can't." Those two words are the same as "I won't." and "I quit." There are no quitters. There is only "I can." and "I will." "I quit." is a joke.
If You Must Go
Lord, God, Redeemer,
In transition, that’s where I am,
Melancholy only drives me to experience more: Love harder, brave the storm.
This is my motivation. I see myself in that girl with scars on her wrist In pain, but ignored daily by family and friends And she’s told by others that she can stop anytime she wants.
I suppose we all know one day we'll die to some of us that might sound like a sweet relief For others it may be a biggest fear. For some, Life has been hell For others much better
No one else is me, And no one else will ever be. My hair, eyes, and face No one can replace. What makes me quirky, What makes me ME, Is something I will always be.
I’m no Cinderella Never lost a glass slipper Never got prince charming I’m no Cinderella Always felt strange Faraway Slipping away Always felt strange
There is nothing above me but white and blue
You make me want to live You make me want to give It's alright If not only for tonight You make me want to sing Like no one is listening You make me want to smile
I didn't grow up in a home, I grew up in houses, 13 schools and a murder attempt and "Run as fast as you can, find the neighbor, and stay there till I call the police!" My mom's ex-boyfriend,
No, I'm not a Babie girl I'm not the fastest swimmer I'm not the smartest student I'm not the best daughter
I just want to be an inspration To those with a dedication To become better then what they were yesterday only to realize that your most important days are the day you are born and the day you find out why
Sleep my child and awaken a king... Sleep my child
Listen to me, oh Muse, and help me tell the story Of the young man with great determination. The one who worked for years on a single goal To turn his belt the darkest of all colors.
Born in the Flame of the controversial state. They try to burn my fate with bias hate.
I'm gunna make it baby, yeah I'm determined to
"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.
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
I see a glass half empty, empty? isnt that bad?
My past is full of hatred and disgust
Time, it's the movemen of the second hand
Notice all the old folks, hear them say What happened to the kids nowadays? Sitting on their ass, shorts way too high Lying, cheating with pants down to their thighs This is the age of the young, wild, and free
A child grown up in a world of woes, At times it filters from her head to her toes, But this girl--is not on her own- Swept from emotion to emotion along the coast she travel, In a world of misunderstanding and suspicion she walks, But she tries
We all live within the pursuit of hhappiness/ Waiting a fine line between poverty & calamity/ Looking through a blind success, pick your poison as we fall through Amity/
is there a reason our steps are so shallow
I wake up everyday with a smile on my face Life is a race I have been pushed around People have tried to trip me up But I always had belief in myself It doesn't matter where you come from
The race we run roils with rigor Journeying to a peak of revival Tumbling down a tube of trauma Crash into the valley Climbing back out
Shaping a life full of SUCCESS
I can rhyme words without a rhythmbut as soon as I try, I lose the feeling.So I’ve learned to let them flow,let ‘em rolloff my tongue - or in this case my pen -
What uplifts me? Such a simple question But difficult to answer What does it mean? "What inspires me?
Do I know you? The words you pronounce are so ugly and dirty, But you say they fit me just perfectly. Do I know you? No, I do not but here I am lying on the floor
I am learning to be grateful for each second of every minute of every hour of every moment But I am aware that today will soon be yesterday, only joining the history lesson of ‘remember those days’
The room is too warm My palms are sweatty He paces, glancing at the pages. Time is running out I read fast but nothing sticks in my mind. I can't remember the answeres. He glances my way and i flinch.
I remember coming to visit you in the hospital,I didn't know what to do.
As lifes cards unfold And the world is yours to hold Remember, above all stay Gold. When all around is black and the weight of the world is on your back when your life begins to form that mold
focus focus focus wasting time in a book mind escaping once again focus focus focus
Hope. Hope is everywhere Hope is abundant, hope is not rare
As going into the tunnels of oblivion it's either kill or be killed It seem as if the snow starts to fall just as the sky does we run for the safety of our pack their have been
Zeal for Success
Off You fell off, No, not off the edge of earth,
Music uplifts the strings on my guitar,Hockey uplifts the puck on my stick,Education uplifts the knowledge in my head,Preparedness uplifts the opportunities in my life,Work uplifts the money in my pocket,
Since the moment you are created
The whispers chirped all through the air, The trotting deer, the hopping hare. They moved with swiftness that was so divine, But then nature settled into one dismal line.
I survey the land ahead. As i look out on the horizon, I see a humming bird, hovering near a flower. I hear a bee, buzzing around me. And I distinctly hear a tree fall, in the distance.
I am the girl I am the women
All we can do is try I still have yet to die Get on up, don't cry Give up hope, oh my Take hold of this hour Find your inner power Your own unique style Make this life worth while
My goal, is my motivation. My coffee, is my kick start. My music, Is my sanity. My dream, is just a road away.
To have an impact on people,
Life is gift from God But you have to earn that gift You can’t just expect things to happen Or else they never will Life is about persistence Hard work and dedication pays off
They all want my autograph but they don't know how I write it The things I read behind closed doors made me who I am- but how can I be what I have read if I cannot speak out loud?
My mirror of motivation, Stares back at me daily. Sometimes it smiles and sometimes it cries, But within it's glassy walls lives a woman who Is nothing but a bag of dreams and anxious success.
Where were you? The times i cried for help.. where were you? When i need a shoulder to lay my head upon? Where were you? when i needed that extra push? where were you?
From the suffocation of checkered fear, To the pastel brush stroke of peace. From the wide-eyed, emotive hollowness of 3 a.m.
Molotov cocktails and tear gas. Nuclear arms and hateful words. It's all so far away and right at home, so where is this world heading towards? Nobody knows, so we make ourselves blind,
Out there floating in the sky
Shine bright I love you a tear cries not me forever blue , you too hmmph Yes!! The moon looks good fresh like the soil in my pot grow little one grow big one
Some say you must hate to lose, more than you love to win.
Inspiration What is inspiration but a fanny pack full of hammy down quotes from people no different than you or I. Or is it indifference that allows one to be different. "Haters gnna hate!"
I am like the sun
I am searching for an inspiration Something to allow me to get into action
When will the end come, Everyday same routine, Everyday stressed, Everyday overwhelmed. This is for the best, But when will it come. Patience…. The time has arrived, Hard work paid off,
The day motivation motivated me it hit me like a slap on the knee, Realizing what came to my mind I knew I had everything to find,
RejectionWanting a dreamLonging for what is not easily possessed DeterminationSeeing the imaginable futureA solvency of a teachable past
i'm gonna polish It 2 a solar flame2 rekindle my subconcious chariotthat bears my virgin senses from:

Tick Tick Tock Tock Minutes slip away on my clock. Need some motivation, The days keep passing while I’m on vacation. So what keeps me going, Makes me want to keep growing?
It is the glue that holds dreams together,
Falls down, but gets up again to see the light of day tick-tock, what makes me tick- determination. Someone flies by, digging those spikes into the track-
Body. So. Weak.
What makes me tick? Definitely not batteries. Definitely not my heart. What makes me tick? My brain. My brain has the motivation. My brain has all the plans.
A mission, a venture, a task to complete Not to meet, but to reach above the level at which you compete. Gear up for the storm, ready yourself for tension
A mission, a venture, a task to complete Not to meet, but to reach above the level at which you compete. Gear up for the storm, ready yourself for tension
I was 12 years old, sitting on the front porch. Parents arguing inside, about money of course. When I grow up, none of this, No paycheck-to-paycheck living, No worrying about making ends meet,
Everyday I a clumsily wake up and see, what a great and wonderful world exists around me.
FROM MY YOUTH COMES GREAT WISDOM. FROM MY YOUTH COMES OUR FUTURE. FROM MY YOUTH COMES STRENGTH. FROM MY YOUTH COMES POWER. FROM MY YOUTH COMES SOUL. LIFE, BEAUTY, AND LOVE COME FROM THE ROOTS OF MY YOUTH.
IT’S A girlThe three deadliest words in the world.So many keep disappearing just because of the flip of the coin.
It was an instant goodbye I began to cry I lost a friend Oh Dear God, why?
I know you don’t get it, and you never will.
Success comes through opportunities thrown your way These opportunities are unexpected Which is why you have to take advantage of them Be smart, don’t take these situations or influential people for granted
This: a whirling vicious cycle underneath
a quiet beach, golden sand, and crisp blue waves ; it seems to be the perfect place. you set down your towel, put on your sunscreen. you never knew life could be so serene.
Most of my motivation is gone. I see no moving forward.
If there ever was enough to give, I would give it to you. If there ever was enough ways to show I would show, I woud show you my truth. My love for you is so alive it would never die. you take my breath away, you make my heart skip a beat.
What is a life? Measured in the days, milestones? We rent the time on this earth, so we measure in love. After death a life only continues in memories. You will be forgotten if you are “idle”.
Eighteen score years ago, a cradled crying baby - who was given an enlightened path - was born
Motivation, it's what keeps us going, How do we keep motivated in a world that's never slowing? Our goals are too important to let go of that sight, Our focus will help us reach a future so bright
I WILL PREVAIL
Tribulations of young life start out bright Yet the other kids didn't see the same light
Sometimes, I feel I am zero. That I am nothing. Worthless, empty, an entity with no value.
Let the shadows go Since they only come when its bright outside. Let the shadows go Since they come and take what's free. Let the shadows go because they are what holds you back.
I sit here
I sat in class a brain ahead of me It was dissection day and time to play The teacher handed me the master key I cut around matter that is grey And discovered my new fascination
One Job One day two ways I say Experience and Education are the ways three things i must say to the people who didnt believe,refuse to help,or just dont care
When I was young I didn't know, Where exactly I should go. My life was crazy, always turning, Never knowing, always learning. I'm a growing flower and knowledge is power.
I used to wake up hoping to play this great game one day. Now I wake up dying to make it each day. Oh if things had gone my way to the tee, I probably have been all smiles, more happy.
A drop, a drop
With just a little change, our society could thrive if we used our full potential, possibilites reach the sky the potential we all have, but seem to throw away could be the difference in, living a different way
What is the most powerful thing in the world? Is it the desire to achieve greatness? Or is it your desire to crawl out of bed in the morning knowing you have to get to class and can't be late?
When I reach for the pen and paper, and begin to write/ Do I write about what’s right or mainstream it to tight/ One brings fame while the other brings respect/ I guess the only way to impress is to show intellect/
I'm a country boy Growing up in the fields of the valley's heights The stars bright shining over me The sweet smell of the pasture in the morning The fresh air and open land Animals roam wild
I’ve lead a hard life Born on a springs day The sun of life has lead my way Poor by fate Rich through faith The dessert sand shed its storm before me Gaining what was once lost at the cost of another

These eyes see farther than most They can see right to your soul But most importantly, they see the future I demand This vision is scary to some who cannot understand Power, power is what I have
Awaken from slumber long enough To remind myself what's real The part of me that's sleeping Is dying to wake up. The part of me that's wide awake Simply wants to sleep.
They always mock me. Staring from the sky, Hiding behind the clouds, And would never touch the grass believing they are superior. I grimace feeling hopeless
Do not get down if you ever fall and fail True success will come don't make it a need Don't be dependent let go of the rail Imagination is what you should feed Your mind should be clear of all doubts and fear
Crunch…Crunch…Crunch… Man, it’s humid out today… can’t blink or else the sweat will burn my eyes, just what I need… We’re only at the mile mark?!... This is gonna be a long race...

Constant struggle. Daily beatings, no matter what it is. Feelings weak, so weak. I shut down. about break. Wanting to cry for help. But only feel alone in a dark room.
We find ways to make it. We are stronger than we think. Most believe they will break So they give up at the brink. It is when you are near the end. Do most quit,
“You won’t get into college.”“If you don’t take these classes, you won’t get accepted into the schools you want."
Greatness seems worlds away, Through everlasting space, Between endless time, Far beyond shades of poor, Out reaching the blurred good, Underneath infinite excellence, Lies the Greatness I seek.
My lungs don't work well, but my brain does, And with my brain I dream and dream! In these dreams I can see my future. However, my brain does not sing. I sang for you - or was it for a grade?

Say what you want and think whatever, But I promise you that I will never Change who I am or who I'm going to be. I am who I am, take me or leave me. Stereotype this and that. It's a dare.
What is time? By definition its an indefinite continued progress of existance But is there even such a thing? We measure time with numbers, But there are no numbers in the sky, on our bodies
People on the screen don't exisit anymore All that's there are explosions and products to buy And this makes me burn. The screen has become a bible more or else, it's what society bases it's joys and pains on.

I got a date with DestinyAt Hollywood Boulevard I studied it like AnatomyAnd I know almost everyone has given up on me butI need redemption no need to mention my past
Life is the thunderstorm we fail to appreciate as we wait on a sunny day. Hate is fear, after our mask falls away. Love is the best worst thing you'll ever know. Against the grain might sometimes mean going with the flow.
Backpack slung over arms reaching for a water bottle sun rays approaching you could see the glimpse of light it was about to begin
Feet on ground Head in the sky Making plans for the future When I am barely getting by Just happy to be smiling So lucky to be alive Whether money grows on trees Or I am begging on my knees

I write to take away the pain. To make sure all critics remember my name. To remove the sympathy and handouts and convert that to becoming a standout. To show my grandmothers that I am no longer that little boy.
Lighten up butter ball and get cooking.
A broken watch lies in my hands It seems to have died the day I found my fate Like the burden of knowledge I must act In fact, run and race time before he beats me to my own game A head start would suffice
What if you could evaporate in the sky And drift freely along the twists and turns of the winds current Travel miles upon miles over land Showering them with your condensed vapor
Your impression That the world will harbor the Audacity to sever limbs from the whole truth Are gravely mistaken. From now on, the whole truth, and nothing less! And in times of future toil,
"Don't do that" a common utterance of disempowerment A three word society on its own filled with expectation when the first mistake was made A sense of being unloved, peaking through a pessimistic lens of hearing

As the wind whips within my face. The cold sharp agonizing pain brings memories of disgrace.
These words I write Are Born from me, I’ve given them more Than just a sound, I’ve given them Life, An opportunity to Impress. It’s passion turns to heart and logic into mind.

Look into your own Imagination. What is around your location? Suited rabbits? Black magic? Mystic incantations? Delve deeper than a magicians hat. Outside the box? Farther than that.
I want to arise like a phoenix from the ashes Live for the moment and everything else can reside where the past is You’ve been there, done that, it’s all said and done Like Joey said:
Ashes to ashes. Stardust to stardust. Not something you can take with you Exactly But not something you can easily Relinquish. Grow claws just to clutch at it for a
Sometimes I wish I was a star, Shining bright and worlds apart. When I look up to gaze, At its elegance and its mystery. I just wonder, does it have history. Is there someone doing the exact same,
Everybody Falters, Everybody Fails, Sooner or later, We all Prevail.
The pursuit of happiness, What is it exactly, Where do I find it, And how do I get there. It varies from one person to another, It is constantly changing like the weather.
I write to express my courageous spirit The way I fight to cling to life The way I fight for my success in life Even though the odds are always pinned against me Still I choose to fight the good fight

Everyone, No matter what size, shape, any variation of human, We all hit rock bottom. Some are deeper, some fall harder. The choice is yours; Be the one to immediately grasps at the loose dirt around them,
A loud voice can do many things. It can free a caterpillar. My words stayed small for so long and no longer will they hunger for excape. I fought through the jungle of my mind and freed my thoughts from it's captors.

I write to be free, To see another fate beyond the trees, Scratching on the door of closer, When I can be me and let imagination take over. Typing on a steady rhythm of a key, As steady and mellow of the sea,
The Sound of Thunder cracks On the back of her chest This ex-con yelled louder mightier Than any Lion could roar Yet when all is said and done, done and said, she still is the same

From the bottom you have fear, and after failure procrastination for a year. Slowly but surely you work your way up. Now halfway full is how i picture my cup. I'm steady on the path of yelling IM HERE!
A Face, In the mirror, Can't be mine- Too much experience, Too little time. Cold eyes, Not a wife, And barely a mother, Of a dear child who needs her.
I am a symptom of your disease Hopped up on overdoses of caffeine Because from hate, love breeds I am a symptom of your disesase
Flinting fire fairies fly As the dance of the phoenix burns inside And as that scorching heat burns eagerly Golden yellows, ruby reds, grow rapidly This blistering beauty seems to co-exist complacently,
You are made of: sticks and stones and the velvet of every cloud you could ever touch.
Its just the mere discrepancy of realizing what is happening around me The dark pages that start unfolding from the past Constantly reminding me of before Hurt cutting through me as tears slowly dwell from my eyes
When it began, no one could tell How hard it was for me I was just like the other boys and girls Just with more energy
Never Had Anyone to depend on, show me the way, the straight way. So I thought to go get it on my own, Make it on my own. Had it fixed in my mind.
I write to create a realistic image in your subconscious mind To create a way to express my thoughts, leaving mouth from my entering mind My poetry is more than just the similes and rhymes
I was laying out in the snow one fine day, Wondering what life's journey was in my way. I looked out with a blank stare, Realizing moments like these are very rare. Standing there optimistic about whats ahead,
Untamable This space is cold The name I chose became the main chain-reaction to maintain with a brain too strange for the average face to smile at so brace and don't hate just cope I came to hold
I fail sometimes. Feel hard time of all kinds. I fall on my face And I make mistakes. I've been lost before. Lost at sea, whipped by waves Never washed ashore.
To first climb the ladder, You must step the stairs. One at a time, beware of bears. Don't be interfere. It's just a sign. The anger inside clawing it's mind. Mind if I asked?
May the lighters light May your heart love May the sun shine Right above us May your actions be worthy May your hunger be hardy May your drive have engine May your soul have a mission
Hiding in the closet while teardrops are flowing Wondering when is this feeling of despair going to end But wait!! I see a light peaking through these hidden doors Or is it my future looking bright as the blazing sun
I often sit and wonder, What I’m going to do with my life, No matter how hard I try, It always ends in strife. What do you love? What do you hate? All I want to do, Is leave it up to fate.
through all the struggle ,and all the pain ,i will keep on dancing through the rain. keep my smile with hidden tears.I will learn to conquer all my fears.
It is pain? Or is it joy? The story of many, yet unique to us all. The workloads of life, giving us too much to haul, And the joyous of times in good news' call. We must understand that the long suffering is a profit,
I've been tired and hungry I've been lost and been left. I've been lied on and spied on I've been beaten and bereft. I've been preyed on and prayed for without a prayer of my own
I look up to the sky and sun To give me inspiration They tell me that they’re down to none Due to past generations I look for it in every place, Sound, sight, smell, and sensation;
Darkness behind my eyelids Earth experiences the same darkness As the sun’s light is captured by the moon My curtains of flesh rise with the sun As it illuminates my surroundings
I'm just walking, trying to get by. Irritated by the fact, I don't even try. Excuses after excuses, what is there left to say. I'm in the fetal position, and all I can do is pray.
We are so much more than what you see in the videos on TV We are so much more than the rocks on our chain Or the chronic smoke that clouds our brain We are so much more than the sagging of our pants
