I'm a bit confused Because you say that you're clothes Are one size fits all. And that may be true
Many of Our Major Experiences Normally Take Seconds Written by: Eric Fraley
I withstood the pressure
I’m quiet and go unseen It’s truly the best way to really see. I see the face behind the mask, the one who frowns behind the laugh. I see the need behind the smile, the one that lies to please the crowd.
Shout out to the people that goes out to all Even if you feel big, even if you feel small Shout out to the rich, can't forget about the poor God blees the greedy, who always want more
Time, something I really can’t seem to stop thinking about. Time, something that will follow and lose you in life.
Through the time I traverse, moment to moment, memory to memory. The riches on the way, I always grab a fistful. One by one they slip away as it is in their nature. Little remorse is felt since they are but ephemeral.
At times of utter chaos, the mind sleeps. Hiding behind a closure, until vulnerable no more. And days later, after closure, comes a newfound fascination- in what exactly happened.
An empath Just a ProSonderer Nothing more But quick to learn every human’s soul will be instinctively felt just as the breeze flows

Dear Society, You analyze the outside of my body, My curvy, bodacious butt, and these hips that don't lie hunny The three layers of rolls when I bend over and the wrinkles on my forehead,
My child has finally been born. Thy world awaits ye beauty. Yet I must hide thee from scorn, So I take thy to a place that’s gloomy.

There She Is All perfect and delicate But breakable continuing to be elegant. Her so-called goods are exposed And she doesn’t hesitate to pose. I am not saying she is no brainer

Dear Future Joamir,
When we're sixteen and breathing is like shoving steel through our veins, it's hard and it hurts but we keep doing it. When we're nineteen and we've been cut loose,
There’s blood underneath your fingertips, cracks in your nails, chaos in your head, suicide in your eyes.
Much is wrong with our society, Treating people like scum, This causes some to turn to anarchy, But choas without purpose is dumb. We all have a lesson to learn, Unity is the way to peace,
An apple Sweet Or sour Turns into applesauce To make an Even better treat And even if Those sour apples
Society its always the answer or the well thought out solution. theres no room for any type of change or evolution, When you know the revolution, won’t be televised but you stayed tuned in.
Tell me about the time Where the moon was the only light that earth needed To guide it’s nocturnal creatures, Where it’s inhabitants did not rely on the exhausts of human devices To color the sky;
Is it perfection you're looking for, huh ? A big painful circleEach point,perfectly aligned from its centre. Aren't you tired of,practical people-saying dreams are foolishand life is long
Emptiness and sorrow, They all say it will get better tomorrow, Yet I am stuck in the mistakes of my past, While everyone around me is moving by fast, Standstill, standstill, My body turns into a landfill,

Dear Society, I hate you Plain and simple You ostracize the best of people You make them feel like they are nothing But you don't care Dear Society, One day I'll rise above you
Time somebody told me. I was wasting my time ganging unworthy friends. Time somebody told me. Loving myself is my number one priority
Love is a very powerful word, But today we toss it around carelessly because the lines are blurred, Don’t tell me you love me when you don’t even know my middle name,
because i love you i only smile as i watch you tilt back the milk carton white drops running down your chin the lips softly parted. i only smile even though

I woke this morning to find a mother crying on the television screen Her son was following urban fashion wearing a hood over his head and it blinded him
In a modern world, consumed by sex, one does not think of Love. It is only the minority that still practice love, real Love. Love is cute dates, Courtship, Kindness, kissing.
We are shaped to be normal, to fit in with the crowd. We are told to do our best to make our parents proud. We are taught that girls can cry, but "men" can't shed a tear.
I will listen to society and I might cry at the words I hear, but I still do when she is wounded by her own sword And I will stand to say that I love her like a mother or sister
The world doesn't understand our love. It cannot comprehend the myriad of emotions you make me feel. They do not see us the way we do, Only seeing us as two females in a heteronormative society.
What you know about the silence of the lambs I'm not talking about that cross dresser shit. I mean the way people today choose to live, cowardly, afraid to speak up. Think differently,
To you I am nothing more than what you see, what you hear, what you read. I am nothing more to the world than the traces that I leave, in my words, in my art, in my legacy.
The first came on a white horse. A pure white horse, so it was welcomed. With open arms and minds. It was embraced. It was the illusion of progress, it was wanting more, more, more.
A Man A room Confined to silence Darkness comes and goes Maybe of sleep, maybe of death His body wonders, his mind paces What then does he seek Perhaps a reason, Perhaps a light

My dad got remarried when I was ten. To a woman whose hugs smelled like three shots of tequila before church, we lived in a cracked window, bug baited, squeaky apartment
Society has programmed us... undesirable, Imprinting in our brains over and over what we should strive to be. We believe that in order to be acceptable ,
They say that love always wins, but sometimes I can't be sure. I want to believe the world can be a safe place for me, but when I'm downtown for open mic, it's always: Check your skirt length.
You should be with the one you love, As love is what matters to the one above, Society in which is scattered; would bunch together if our hearts came as one, Oh society holds us apart, But why?
Isn’t it funny how everyone walks around with fake smiles on their faces?; Fake ears to listen to others’ fake cases; They made up in hopes that someone could possibly care;
I see no point In going through this maze. It is filled to the brim with traps, cloaked in a dulcet haze. Must I play a part in this senselessness? This deceit that plagues us all?
Society is messed up. Apparently a girl can't do or wear anything without getting called out. Listen to this: A girl never wears make up and her acne is never covered. So she starts to have people saying,

How can you smile knowing that peopl are dying because they are sick of trying to appease the critics, to appease the man, to appease the woman, and those in command. They are taking their lives
The question I ask myselfWhy they look at youAs if you're half nakedWhy they look at youAs if you're a piece of cake baked

Politics & Religion Were never meant for polite society My parents taught me. But polite society doesn't exist At least in this day and age. Now and again vulgarities show Marring perfect plans

I fell in love with a man who lives in a world of black and white Doesn't quite see something that isnt at sight I stand in the front light to make sure that I shine, but my color's to bright almost seems to blind
Even that which seems to be pure beauty hides its deepest secrets For which the stars shine only when not covered in the fog of the city lights
You. Yes you. You disturb me. The way you break some, polish others, and chip and crack the rest. The cabinet we sit in is filled with beautiful colors and shapes.
All around are people, too Busy to Care about anything except the moment they are in, too Distracted to notice that they are not the only ones that Exist. They do not have the time to see the world
They say life is a gift, That love bridges the rifts, They say 'follow your dreams', They ask you to come clean. But what if life is greedy and shallow, Driven by heads and hearts that are hollow,
The day started smooth and had a groove reminiscent of rythm & blues. The day kicked off right, it was bright, so bright that it would have lit the sky on the darkest of nights.
The stages of rain are neverending But it seems that this rain is heavy Mixed with hail and God's guilty tears Maybe he see the bad we've done What he has caused us to do And wants to wash it away

They say you see someone’s soul Through their eyes I see their souls In the money they Slide into my jacket
You told me I have to play the game of society. If I don’t I won’t succeed as a writer, but a whore. Who is to define my intelligence by the purple marks of sex on my skinny neck? You?

This morning I woke up and it was controversial. My skin glowed caramel under the sun and it was controversial.
When you hear the word NORMAL You think Of the common man or woman You think Of nothing special Just plain, the "Average Joe"
America. She used to belong to everyone and she was okay with it. Rumor has it that an Englishman found her & sold her some dreams.
Round and round the wheel of time goes; Where she stops, nobody knows. As tides come red and pebbles turn black. Name a virtue which we today lack. We have TVs, and treadmills, and shiny things too,
In my youth it was hidden the color of my hands the sun on my blonde hair the glisten of my green eyes and the accompanying announcment to society of an all american girl who had everything she wanted
Traffic lights stay at a steady red Reflecting on life's motion Dropping down what I see with lead Depicting the faces of no emotion Running down an endless path
I used to break door handles, A habit my parents never cherished. Someone would hide behind the door, And I'd come chasing after them. The slam of the door The click of the lock,
You are blind. Do you realize our shape? You are misfitted, who are you, one of a kind? No, I think not. You do not come together. Instead, we're all the same but yet we are separated;
Our god is green so things are never as they seem,Freedom rings but are we really free?People still being exploited like the Cree,In the land of history repeated,Was hatred every truly defeated? When Lincoln died, he believed us to be unified,Jim
You know I think it's kind of funny How we say, almost excessively, that are now a more connected humanity in this, the "amazing" 21st century. I mean, "We're more connected than ever!", right?
America is free at least that's what we're selling but the product must be damaged there's not one damn soul that believes what we're telling
Nerves Racing. Heart's Beating. Why are they starring? Is it my smile, my body, my hair? Is it my personailty, Why should they care? I just want to stop the stares...
Mirror, mirror on the wall who is worst of them all, I promise I try to stand tall. I know I'm ugly, I know im worthless, My body alone makes me nervous. You don't have to tell me how bad I am,
wouldn't it be perfect, if eveyone danced as society told them, because there is no room for free will, because there is no room for a creative spirit, there is no room to be your own person,
We are America... the land of the free, the home of the brave, yet we stll have many crises pertaining to inequality, poverty, Geneaolgy, social class, economic wealth and generosity.
As the music starts the world disappears You slip into a new world for just two minutes A world where no one judges Where no one cares How you look
My thoughts are too loud to not let out, But I don't know what to write about, the rhymes spout but they all sound the same, they fall from the clouds where my soul hides,
America Built on the ideas for a perfect life Freedom and Equality Holds a bias for those who can plant their seed with a pale complexion Education
Shouts, Screams, Thunder, and Roars All hidden behind unopened doors Lies, Betrayal, Beaten, and Broke Buried beneath the ash in the smoke Fire, War, Gun Shots, and Swords
Eyes stapled open, Mouth taped shut, Ropes restraining my body, This is what it’s like in society. Opinions kept to myself,
A perfect world is unrealistic Crime, violence, guns, deaths, gangs When will it slow down
Chug-a, chug-a, chug-a, chug You fall behind, you're out of luck. Brute mechanisms all in place to stay on track & win the race, They work in time and go in sync so you'll go far, or so you think.
America the free But are we really free? Striving to contain a positive image Looking into the mirror Not many like what they see Remain a healthy mindset is what I strive to do
"He's just a guy." Just a guy, just being a boy, What's wrong with that? Let boys be boys. Don't be so uptight. He just got drunk. He just did coke. He just took the car-
Social Media, feeding the Obsession. Expression which switches Depression to Repression. Lies disguise our devotion to true emotion. Self-Hatred, the secret sacred Entity for a hurting Identity.
The curtain has been hung, tied, and strung. The masks has been beaded, laced, and covered with a face.

"Wake Up Neo. "The Matrix has you." Digital Mind Control. Green codes align with the receptors of our brain.
Who are you? Who am I? Does anyone really know? Who are you to tell me what I should say or what I should show?
You ask what is race, something simple as a face, the color of the skin, or your fellow kin. There is a blank space
The impossible has happened and now I am impossibly numb. The bitter sting of an empty core, I wanted more. More warmth more sun, more love, hope. And I want more still.
Society or more like a prison? A prison full of racism and negativity.
Built upon bloodshed and mass genocide maybe the color of my skin did dictate innocent lives We probably did take it all away The culture, the land, the native beauty
Sometimes I wish I was skinny and pretty. Sometimes when I look in the mirror I want to cut the fat off! I hate how being fat your discriminated, I hate how being fat you got to have a hour glass shape. Why do I feel this way?

Seventeen years of life experience and I'm still not qualified for the job, because everyone thinks I'm either too young or too dumb. Pressured by society to look thin and tan, but we can hardly face each other man to man.
Ghosts linger in the crack between the door and its frame. Now, you should know that they’re hard to tame. Not every one of my demons is the same. It is madness; It is a cigarette I call badness.
You all are followers You seem to forget identity. You all are in search of conformity You seem to settle with docility. Opinions are not for sale They have gone out of style.
It’s a specific side. The one with frayed edges where Paper fibers are disrupted from the interwoven Pattern of rules calculated to win points. No one can see the perfect matrix.

I wonder, I wonder if the world can see the pain in my eyes. My smile torn from my face, it's been stolen by the violence of love. Empty seats surround me. I am in a room full of souls, 200.
I am but a mere quirk in the face of billions, shifting my way down on a path that shall leave me dispersed. Times have shaped the outline of my brain, leaving me so estranged from the me of the past,

Her words were as sweet as honey, And her smile was even sweeter. She would always help those around her, No matter who or what the situation was. She always praised others,

Loved too hard, Rejected too fast. Maybe that's why I always held back.
A wildfire of a soul--entrapped by glass of reality. Ferociously burning, in which drains for all eternity. This is passion. My passion.

He kissed her lips and whispered “I love you.” She smiled Kissed his lips and whispered “I love you.” He turned away and she frowned. She wanted to love him. She felt so cold. So empty.
Let's talk about the issues with this world. For example, do we even know what privacy is? Your business is none of my concern, ladies and yet, here we go again.
I KNOW WHY THE CAGED BIRD SINGS...

As I sit here Contemplating my life I see changes That define my fight To see an end From the very beginning To understand the words That I'm currently feeling
Mute me not
I faithfully follow the father as i try to fight off fear,
Are you not entertained as I pace around in your parade Follow your rules and be stung by your commands Be swept up in fear by your threats and arrogance Not understand why you treat me if I do not feel pain
Many people know the season But many people know not me I am more than your Instagram pictures Of your dog playing in the leaves I am the purest of aesthetics Not for my face or my hair
We are blind We go wherever the man tells us "Turn left here" we do it "Don't trip on the rock" There are a few who don't listen to this and still don't trip but they spend their whole lives
Who are we Who can we be? We go our whole lives being told we can be anything but can we? I think not If we could all be what we wanted there would be no difference would that be good would it?
Excellence That's what we all want To be the alpha dogs To be the best The greatest And sometimes It feels essential Like we need perfection in our lives But the truth is
exotic one word to describe a euphoria an infinity of pleasure and defiance against a tasteless mindless society. The river that flows steam like hot lava
Time is relentless It torments us constantly From "running" or "flying" by so fast When we are laughing and smiling As if cutting off our happiness supply to going in slow motion
She walks in a straight line Her shoulders puffed up And the look of thought expressed upon her face The ideal teen A model citizen She seen legit Or at least she appears to be For she is a robot
( This is the first stage of a poem that highlights society's passive-aggressive behavior towards the individual and the ingrained idea of feminine perfection)
This is not a suicide note
It's a cruel world You don't wear the right clothes Judged. You our don't wear make up, Judged You do wear make up, Judged. You you don't look like a model Judged.
If a house "divided" against itself cannot stand Then how is ours still running With handwriting on the wall in pen, Saying it's each other we are shunning? Society changed us
Strength is something not many people have Courage is something many people lack Belief is something most of us claim

On days of satisfaction I embrace the lights that illuminate our urban lifestyles But on days of frustration I am capable of bending that light into fragile reflections, which shed the truth amongst all creations
Her ship is sinking, it's now 20 feet below. It's already submerged with only one place to go. Down in the murky depths where the light doesn't show. Her passion is gone, now stagnant, as the water ceases to flow.
People will believe things that they choose to believe Most don't see the reality behind what their eyes show them Then again, we can't change the way they are When in fact, this is how we believe what people really do
I'm trapped in a room where the door is always open When I try to flee I find a sadder story has been awoken For I have wondered into yet another cell Only a grander stage in which to scream and yell
Just a few years ago I can see this change How drugs, sex and drinking took the reins
Everything is awesome when.. We work together to change our society We stop focosing on a fake diety. We focus on success and not failure. everyone is supportive of one another
Leaves are brown, the sky is gray, How did things end up being this way? I look around to see no one around,
Challenges that we face Promises that we break The things that we have witnessed Survival of the fittest Challenges that we met Promises that we kept To those who were defied

I’m just so tired of all this ad nebulosityBeing lectured on engine wear and motor oil viscosityBeing told I need drugs for emotional well-beingBecause I’m so stressed with all the violence I’m seeing

There was a fundamental disconnectas he thrust out his hand to shakemine and missed three feet wide.One eye looked off left and the otherseemed to stare right through me.

He saw the cloudsand took his umbrellaon his sleepy carousel liferound and roundup and downeighty floors highto eradicate his stack of papersbefore his noon expedition
Observing the vestiges of common humanity I am engulfed in processes that are reminiscent of the ages when obfuscation was predominantly a matter of undiscovered science converging into a
He thought he shared the universe with all;Heard many voices in response remandAn inundation—words unlike his call,From the desert-bare cliff across the sand.Some morning from the parched and thirsty ground
They say I’m waxing philosophic.But it’s only a car and so what if I like it shinyit’s mine and it reflects the sky, the sun, the moon,the stars and, in a way, me, connecting me to the universe

Fossil fashions,The relics of yesterday,I dig through my drawers.TV, radio, papers, people,A thousand words a second,A downpour floods my garden.The sun shines on all,
We are at a point in history where we aren't afraid to be free No more asking "is it okay to be me?" Women now have the right to voice their opinion in what they say Even though we are still working on equal pay.
I'd rather be a free, black sheep of a soul or stiffer than a piece of coal than be bound at the neck, wrist, and ankles by the chains of labels and stereotypes
Society is lost,
Woman- what does it mean? Tall, fat, skinny, short; why not smart, compassionate, or witty? I know I know, boys will be boys, they will think and speak crude talk, but can't they be taught that We are more?
Society is a silent killer- Creeps up on you with preconceptions Draws its barbarous comments And strikes down on your imperfections. That hits you into despondency
we grew up with Barbie dolls, princesses, baseball and football stars
God please help me i feel sick to my stomach, i wanna fall on my feet, but im a man so i dare not weep, and please help me through my struggles and help my get through the night cause sometimes i feel like theres no point to life.
It's not my right to judge, Its not my right to judge someone's sexual preference
A piece of paper That's all it is So much pomp and circumstance preparation & pride for a flimsy declaration that can be burned, and earned by the bottom of the barrel
Walk, and keep your head down. Don’t look up, don’t look back. Don’t go fast, don’t go slow. Just walk. Keep your head down. Some people claim they’re ‘free’ And that they can ‘help you’
Its Insanity out there, in the world, in this society we know, we love, we created. That we allow ourselves to be hated, by each other by others by something we created.
White wings, golden paths to evil Love extricated from retrieval Hearts of boilng ice, frozen fire
Isn’t it a shame that we depend on what others think?
I saw you lying prostrate in your bed of bones and crumbs
I stand before the mirror And all I see is an error A bloody X across my being Telling me this ain’t worth seeing.
Why are we fighting? Why are we rioting? Why are we dying? Why is this happening? Why do we hate? Why do we hide? Why are we blind? Why not be kind?
Tears roam. They taint the atmosphere as light ominous vapor. I've cried enough for us to both be pain free. The idea of leaving this room is the catalyst of a cataclysmic brain freeze. I don't wanna be free. Anymore.
I’m living with this unholy farce Hidden so high away in the sky Where the birds soar Above our heads Many maniacs have acted before me
Many words have been unspoken between you and I memories good and bad unheard of. A bond that has been torn. To my mother, I say to you. I forgive you.
They drive me like a clean cut Lambo down the A1A with my hair in the wind insane. They make me like a dishwasher violently correcting with the voice hitting the ceiling angry.
The common place routine fornicates foul truths of the mundane. We pay our bills while our sisters and brothers
Caricature they remain for they haven’t purity. Streaked thoroughly with grime and mud A downcast shadow shall remain their possession. No one respects those that do not follow in line
Take off the filters and remove the blindfold, Enter this world as you are, Not as you are told- That you should be. Because that is not you, It is not her, it is not him, it is not me.
I was a deer stopped dead in its tracks. My head pounding;
Are you afraid of the dark? Of silence Of stillness Of nothingness The vast emptiness U try to make out shapes in the blank space Can you see it I see everything
I Got My Flowers Today
We are all just specks On the dirty, dirty hands
I wonder how long does it take
My bones were feeble My breath had weathered My voice can be heard as a bare, cracked whisper And I listen at how fragile we are... For which my lungs, they were thirsty for air
Banging, Clanging, Singing, Lyrical tunes spinning, That’s how I think, not how I write. Restricted by society, They say “Don’t say” They say “Do say”
How dare you ask me who I would be without all these stereotypes? Don’t you know that society has already defined me. Don’t you know that because I am female my main goal is to be beautiful.
Outside the window, a woman is beaten upon,
This is to the camera, that sees me as nothing but Delicate bones and pearly whites My essence captured through awkward captions and My worth measured by likes and heart bytes
I am a nice ass,
Who am I I ask as I gaze into the clear blue sky What makes me unique My personality, I think I am a little bit of everything All rolled into someone who cannot sing I feel the music in my body though
You look in the mirror, Begin to apply the corrupted judgments of society upon what you see. But what the mirror doesn't reveal is what truly matters.
Without a care in the world I stare at the lens in front of me,what has become me Behind the lens you will find the real me, not the one I appear to be It's inside out, without a twist of doubt whats becoming of me, you see
I’m always complimented on my perfectly golden skin. My bronze hue holds the Flawless’ secret in an imperfect world
And so the hairy fat ape raped the puppet slut-whore hybrid til it fell limp down the stairs of its sullen gaze amidst the crowing shit-bird winding a tourniquet casually about it's wing, facing the corner,
My eyes dart side to side looking for the welcoming smile, Was it not enough, You have put my entire life on trial, I know what I have done makes my outside rough,
Society Creates and society destroys It molds and shapes the person you strive to be Striving to be an individual yet falling into the hole that was created
Apparently, the only socially acceptable answer to the question "are you okay?", nowadays, is: "I'm fine". Even if you're not fine at all.
This poem deviates slightly from the suggested topic explaining, instead, the psychological state of adolescents and women in this day and age who aspire to a level of perfection that doesn't exist and how the failed attempt to do so leads to
Everyone makes mistakes, That is inevitable. Everyone has flaws, I know this to be true.
Hidden behind photos and many filters, There's something about me thats a little off-kilter. I try to be me, but I'm caught in a snare, But what makes me me, society doesn't seem to care.
I walk alone sometimes. you may ask me how i am, i will say that i am fine and i will ask if you would like to walk with me. I walk alone sometimes. it does not bother me,
You were born.
Who are we? Who is me? What do I see, When I look at he? I see a guy Who lives in a time Where everyone preaches individuality Be yourself Dont judge Be unique
Adults always tell us that they know best They have more experience, and time, they'll attest They feed those words Into our brains Inject that message into our infant veins
Within the consticting walls of social media, I am merely but a single soul, "desperate for attention because I am out of the range of society's normalities." How about you take a closer look before your fill your mouth with judgement.
You think you know me You believe I’m like you Well you couldn’t be more wrong About the subtext of my psychology
Hate is a good thing, When it comes to bad things, But hate is for the next generation. When they look up to rap kings Who promote bad things, gold bling, and diamond rings.
Others talk, whisper, and even push me for the way I look, act, and dress I just shake it off and act like my life isn't a big mess My mom and dad fight almost every night
The evil body shaped serpent shows His red demonized eyes glow Ranting and Raving In realization I’m the one that’s paying God’s what I need in my life is what I ‘am saying Keep me in your prayers
Struggling within something's grasp, Trying to wriggle my way out.
Human 2 humans are such fickle creatures they can never decide they go into something thinking one way and wanting this then by the end thery're thinking the complete opposite
When will people start to care?All around them wrongs are being doneA poem here, a poem thereI now think that people try to stay dumb
People weaponize wordsSentences act as swordsOf society, they're binding chordsOf society, they are your lordsMy self-control will be the death of me
We sit in silence puffing our breath into the frigid air,
Every day I put a mask on my face. I pick out my flaws and try to erase The "imperfections" our society has set. Impossible standards that have yet to be met. So who am I behind the mask?
*Read the poem down first, then read it from bottom up. These two readings represent the filtered self -views of people in society vs. the individualistic view I have of myself, completely filter free*
Sick of division, powered by ambition Brushed into a corner from their social superstition What's your favorite color, boy? White girls are who he enjoys Therefore I'm not worthy of his attention
You are irrelevant. Who are you to think that
When I was younger Peter Pan told me to never grow up
Perfectly Imperfect I look in the mirror And what do I see? I see an imperfect girl staring back at me. Many flaws do I have, I hate looking at my face,
Good Enough Many thought rushing through my mind, Visions of how it’s “supposed to be”. Am I good enough? I’m sick of all these images I see.
What is “Flawless”? Like what does it mean? You don’t know, well here is a definition Flawless by definition means without any blemishes or imperfections; perfect Now tell me are you flawless?
What's nice about me? What do I see? Hell, wouldn't I like to know. The words beauty, flawless, and pretty those aren't words that come to mind
Live the make-believe Congregate falsehoods Hold them up on a pedestal For all to see Lies become truth We need lies To bury reality Live a dream Without the truth
Looking into the abyss What do I see? I see me Wearing my ugg boots And skinny jeans “I am pretty” I say “I am smart” I say “I am me” I say
Looking into the mirror, society stares back. Watching my every move, analyzing every inch. Bite my tongue and hold my words back; smile with closed lips. Constrictions; you cannot wear that.
I bottled all my tears to save for rainy days I put my bad thoughts in a box and sent it into space I framed all my smiles and kept them on display I bagged up all my feelings and threw them all away
Its so easy to lose the meaning of who you are
I am a man stuck in place while others were always told, go ahead or try again
The world is like a parasite,
Buffeted by the impurtuity of the wise, and thought a fool for false reasons-- who is to say that a man is not himself capable for his own short comings?
Where the air flows fresh and crisp And life radiates shades of green And orange and red and colors That run deeper than the scars Of the Earth; Where the grasp of man halts, Giving way to nature,
Time after time people are labeled as things Words of hurt, words that crash dreams Because of how we look, not for what we be But ignoring them all makes me a happier me
Sick of this era’s categorization, overanalyzation, and hasty labeling of human beings. They label us all smoothing stickers over our names,
Take a look around, tell me what you see -
What is human existence?Is it to pronounce our unfathomable desires in a rush of uncertainty?
In a generation when kids of all ages are too wo
Green sap oozing from great gashes in trees into paper, furniture, and houses all for human needs like the great stashes of black oil oozing.... into lakes, rivers, and streams
You’re looking in his eyes And you seem to be falling for his lies You can’t seem to see The secrets behind that smile You don’t know That honesty isn’t his style
I take your hand and walk to the ledge Looking over the steep edge Ready for the jump, but not for the fall So here I stand, trying to stall We take a step and look down
Fighting fire with fire Is not very wise But when overcome with hatred Sadness and Demise Eyes get set on erasing Ultimately defacing A person to a thing Losing its self as a being
Full of Flaws Practice. Every single day is devoted to rehearsal and practice. Keep your chin up and smile wide, don't let it fall.
What I see is different how can this be The light in my eyes are a bit brighter than yours My heart beats and thinks lesser than yours I feel like a wildflower in a pool of roses
When the 8 year old girl starts dressing herself as she has seen models on magazines, that's how you know what society has done wrong. When she looks up to others for fashion "inspiration"
Depression stunned me. Altered and changed, The Perception of my mind.
We are designed to love. We are designed to create. We are designed to dream. All we do is destroy. We fill the minds of our young with happy endings. Our intentions are pure
For Losing shall I ever be Great Losing long nights of pain Before they found her Quenching the thirst of my innocece Saturating my pillow from sorrow For Losing I am Confidence
Who's wild and crazy A girl who's set free someone who listens but can talk to those in need
Taught how to grow and always do right Taught about the world and what we sought Kept close to home and kept safe Shown the wonder of each passing day Waiting for my chance to be my own,
We are the
My name is Ariel. I am me. As happy as can be? Always comparing myself to others I see.
People These Days They are changing like leaves in the fall And they leave you like They don't need you at all...
YES. ALL WOMEN. If my crossing to the other side of the road upsets your fragile ego
They say that beauty
You were born to be real, not perfect and to know in your heart that you are worth it I was born to add to this thing we call life
Today in life people aren't what they appear I look at today and shutter in fear Am I the only one still sincere? Im the only true soul left on this sphere?
Oh look shes a size zero. U G H H, It must be nice to be accepted into this society. Wow, That girls family has the money and the name, S
Filters come, Filters go, Read between the lines, And then, you'll know. Make-up, nail-art, hair-dos and fancy clothes, None of it matters at the end of the night,
I am wild. I am spectacular. I am wildly passionate. I am jealous. I am human. I do dumb things. I make a fool of myself. I have a wondering and imaginative mind, I only see the good in people and I'm infatuated with the idea of love.
Whether you like it or not I am what I am and say what I say And as each night falls and I wait for each day
Her eyes are the tree bark;Making her face come al
I am not less for the mistakes I have made, but made greater by them. My failings don't me weigh down because I choose to stand on them and elevate myself.
My shoulders are drooping underneath the heavy weight of expectation. I'm being dragged by the leash of society.
Here I am I am here Mentally, physically With love and with fear Myabe Im not the best At that or at this But I show up, and I arrive Which some cannot give
I am but a sidewalk, perhaps one less traveled by.
I am me. I have a passion for sports, but I am not a "jock". I love learning, but I am not a "nerd". I enjoy relaxing, but I am not "lazy". I wear baggy sweats, but I am not a "bum". I am me.
I AM only in the beginning stages of a tainted substance they call life ,
Wanting to show my kindness, intelligence, beauty But fear that my confidence will receive the labels of pride and conceit I'm just going to be honest Every inch of me is flawless Vulnerable, anxious
Camera, Camera on my phone. Filter away all my flaws, Surly I do lie, but beauty is key , Without filters, We shine flawless like gems, Now we see eye to lens, Simple beauty,no trends.
Why does the chains of society have a constant need to judge when I am asked to change for what they want it's ok but when I change for what I need it's hard to make happen people constantly let my past decide my future I can't change my past but
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
If people could read minds what would they see Many people struggling or living happily People wear masks to hide the way they feel
Role modes are role models for a reason In our eyes we see perfection, Admiration, Envy,
I was born in a racing heart beat I inherited a bustling society A system thrown upon me
A gentle hand brings you into this world Gentle arms hold you A gentle smile brings you words of comfort Everyhing gentle makes everything normal until reality hits you
Because of my skin tone I'm considered another ethnicity Because of my skin tone I'm judged for wanting the traditional values of my heritage
the girl they see quiet, shy, sweet, strong, the girl I am. loud, outgoing, smart, deep, I am both girls unfiltered. and im completely happy,
Without a filter I'm just a kid, Without a father and a mother in prison, I've seen some things that you'll never see, Things that make small children scream, But what you can never see,
It starts at the core, t
I'm you perfect barbie doll,I can't be fat have to be small,I'll be perfect for you, it's what you wish,But in the end, I know I'll die from this.For you I guess I'll be
Its a feeling not a knowing. Curiosity and randomness lead me to you. I feel so blue. We are so clueless. Where to begin and where to end.
Blonde hair, blue eyes, freckles,5’6” and 150 pounds,My appearance won’t dictate my success. 1970 SAT, 29 ACT score,4.6 GPA, and 63rd in my class of 500.My academics won’t dictate my success.
I don't show you me, I swear. I'd rather not let you know.
This is impossible My body's heavy My minds tired Theres a constant battle raging in my head Should i do it or should i stay How can i live like this What choice do i have Im not good enough
Your beautiful just the way you are There us no need to wear makeup Don't fake it up Just the way you are You shook the world up Because your are beautiful just the way you are
The world is a mistress of beautiful things But the harsh reality is It also holds ugly things And we have ugly people posing as beautiful people And they press the buttons Leaving the rest of us in poverty
Her eyes are blue Her eyes are bright Her lips are flawless too And her hair is just right Her nails are long and thin Her nose is a perfect width Her skin is considered perfection
Who the fuck am I, you asked.
No filter and no makeup, I feel naked It's hard to admit, I'd rather fake it, Pretend like I'm okay, With the small acne scars on my face, The way all my hairs don’t naturally fall into place,
Who am I beyond the mask?Behind the facade is a woman.Why I am no different than you.
Who is me beyond what they see Doing what I can for the perfect selfie Lip gloss on, hair curled slightly Making sure my imperfections is unsightly Who is to say who is me Who is me beyond what they see
Mr. Imperfection why don't you tell me bout all your perfections and why you ain't got none. Tell me how you think you're gonna make it in this world if you're not the best of what you are
Adopted at birth, I now know the truth. I figured it out, you could say I'm a sleuth. Friendly and happy, a sweet shy kind of guy. Describes my essence and I'l try to show why.
Never did I think the world would see me Behind the flowing stems of roses
I never grew up in poverty or tragedy
I am a dork, I am silly, I am beautiful without makeup. I have a heart of gold, I am smart, I am a hardworker. Without a filter, I am all these things, And I love it.
I am Many things. I am blonde. I am tall. I am smart. Sure... I am those things. But you know what else? I am other things too. I am things that you don't know. I am fat.
WIthout the filters, Without the perfect lighting, Who is that girl? She looks hidden by makeup Or the facade of social media, But who is that girl?
When the clouds clear and the curtains are drawn, you get to witness the person that is truely beyond. No glitz, no glamor, nor artificiality present what you see is honestly-just me.
Smooth skin, Thin waist, This is who I want to be. Crop the image, Add a filter, And there it is; the new me. See the smile? See the hapiness?
I am loud without warning I am goofy without restraint I hurt without laughs
When we walk on the street
Hi. My name is. It's nice to meet you. Insert uncomfortable smile. Awkard eye contact. Nervous stutters like I'm on trial. The continuingly interrupting silence makes my brain go into overdrive.
Blood pools At the end of the stairway Caressing me Welcoming me Into eternity I fall and shatter Into millions of fragments So that nobody Can ever uncover Me again
So innocent so dainty so lost in a world full of imbeciles and creatures people who don't respect themselves what wounds can cut deeper than the ones done to oneself
Silent and still in her darkness she observed The lights glowing in her milky way growing disturbed. The stars jarred and jerked Though their brilliant burn seemed all the same from planet Earth.
Every aspect of my life has Always been a splintered crack between myself and who I wanted to portray. It wasn't my fault. I just wasn't good enough. I was not satisfied with who I was,
To be honest, Society, It's the worst, And it's the best.
The culture believes if sh
I stand at the horizons of other men,
I have two faces but I only show one No one knows my true face, none All you can see is my mask Nobody even cares to ask Who cares? My real face shows my trepidation
We are the generation of a new millennium.Be proud?Our title could’ve been better, it sounds pretty corny,I looked online, no one seems to think thatWe’re going to be the ones that save the world
I was handed a mask at a very young age. Society offered, and like the rest I took the bait.
You're beautiful. You're inspiring. You're flawless. I wanna be you. I wanna know you. I'm scared to talk to you. I don't know if you'll talk to me. You'll never like me. I'll never be you.
Talking about The true me you ask. Well that’s a very difficult task; For I have lived by the view of society That I forgot who I truly am; Piety For I taught myself a bold one, ready to stare at the night
I'm a very secretive person, I lurk in the shadows. I come and go like some godfather. I hide behind my mask, built off of past experiences.
I look to the ground at my feet,avoiding the looks from society;I feel like a cheat;I’m overwhelmed from my anxiety;My flaws are showing.
You are just stupid if you think you can read my mind. I'm an evil rebel with a third eye wide. You thought I was blind!!! well, I can put words in your mind and make you forget your pride.
Decorating her mind with the things she loved. It was her room, her sanctuary; where she hid her trust Its corner consistently gathering its dust
Life is but a hoax A fable without moral that tries to coax You into searching for a better day While the choir and congregation all say With their passionless rhyme About the death of passing time
The retinas target the illusions,
I am just me. I have nothing to hide behind these two curtains of mine. My eyes see all these fake people just barely surviving. I am judged because of my opinions, when in fact they are the truth.
A fallen angel with a broken wing Still she manages somehow to sing Though her song is sweet It's full of sorrow Wasted yesterdays with a promise for tomorow She fell for love
Out of the millions who reside Earth I am no different Fairly tall enough to help when possible Light chocolate skin that should not be judged
The world is full of hate drenched in the cynical behavior that we come to know women are starving to achieve the level or perfecton that photo editors create children are bullied
Woke up one day,ready for a change, trying to dream those disney dreams. A bippity boppity boo and my dream would come true, id look like a princess, or maybe even one of those perfect cartoons.
Full of flaws or rather deprived of it? Perfection in one or an endless search to reach it, Pondering on things that make me unique, Blurs the reality of who is the real me, In life we’re given two options,
Admire what you see Mirror or none For which everything that you see Beauty is none What makes things beautiful Thoughts or emotions Either one is powerful But without people's creations
As I look in the mirror I see something clearer
i made it a day without you and looks where its got me I'm covered in filth and there's no one to stop me
I want them to know who I am, but dont. I want to be heard and seen.
There’s never a day we go without social network Social sites create many ways for people to make friends “Double tap for a TBH”- Instagram, Retweet for a S/O- twitter
To Be A Woman In America means to be scared when you walk down the street means to have to fight twice as hard to get just as much means to have to listen to rape jokes and not start an uprising in the middle of class
Pure white porcelain
Darkness Is all I can see Death Is all I dream Happiness Has long since faded away Struggle Each and every single day Mind Is slowly turning to dust Pain
We have all been stopped We have all felt What is thought to be This feeling called loved The has invaded us And stopped us in out tracks That has stopped us from all Stopped us from seeing
People decided to shun So he turned to the
Who do you pray for at night before you go to sleep? What do you feel when you see the homeless on the street? How can you walk with your head held so high when an innocent mother never got to tell her child goodbye.
I can't be perfect you see I don't have the key of all the things I could be I just want to be me I can't impress you You judge me like I'm new They all judge me to at whatever I do
Am I enough? To be considered beautiful, naturally. Naturally with acceptable flaws. Being 17 in a media-controlled world can either go left or right. Am I enough? To make mistakes and be forgiven. Still be human.
Demons go up to me suddenly talking nonsense,i am like God is this real?He nods and says revelation apocalypse, so i kneel and ask for strength to hold on to the throne because i know when people hear this demons won't leave me alone.Heaven is my
It started when I was young. Teased by my family. Move you fat cow, you're blocking the TV.
The day I asked myself am I really this person inside, Am I covering up the truth? Is there anything to hide. Blinded by other people's expectations, focused on unexpect fear.
Being told "Its whats on the inside that matters" never felt so true. Our apperance can be deciving, Looking fresh with eyebrows and nails done Yet inside is full of selfishness, jealousy, and insecurity.
She sat there in disbelief, The things they had written were so malicious. She read the words on the screen: Whore, slut, bitch.
I write this now in the mist of darkness, captivated by the thoughts that have been longing to erupt.
Our eyes are once again forced open by the sound of a beeping alarm. Morning has stolen our precious sleep.
Welcome to western society. The civilized man. The one with the answers The reason we stand The reason we fight. . The reason we judge others and assume we are right.
1 in 5.
Society fucks us all,And we let our ears see it all!
Looking forward to that last year in highschool. Ready to let go and graduate.
At an early age we are tought that
I see women. I see thunder thighs and freckles, muffin tops, rib cages, a birth mark that covers the length of her collar bone
Used to being left alone, Watching the sand turn to stone,
He says you're not pretty, your breasts are too small, and your butt - nonexistent, He says you're borderline ugly, so you believe him, and you can't say you don't because you do,
numbness is not romanticpain is not beautyand struggling is not beautiful
children are innocent until they're introduced into this society and all the pain takes their innocence the insolence and villainous these young kids, they have such vigilance
Living in a society filled with hate;Where People are judge by gender, ethnicity, and race.Hateful words storm through the air;As I stand in silence with a disgusted face.

Who’s that girl? The one who always has her hand stretched up high in the air. Everyone knows that she has something to say, a comment, possible a question, or even a witty remark. She is so charismatic!
This world. Yes. This one The one you're a part of Is dying The United States falls The Middle East quarrels The world is gripped by panic, and fear Pestilence War Poverty
My tears have begin to dry, but I can still hear the whispers as I walk by. Though loud as a dog's bark, it's as quiet as mouse's yawn. They see me, but not my pain.
Little girl's tears run down a red cheek All she ever heard is "You are such a freak!" Sitting quietly with metal death in her hand With a lot of fear and nothing more to stand
I cry for the ones i love.
How come everytime i turn around People are worried about others opinion? How come everytime i turn around People are dying Dying cuz they are scared to be themselves Scared cuz the world is soo cruel
Day in and day out we search for answers, for solutions to problems no ones asked us to solve, for reasons behind already proven facts like "Why does the sun leave us every day?"
Beyond the shadowy, pitch-black night, A new morning's beacon begins to ignite, Now dawns a day in which you will see, The people's will has set them free. For all I want to give this nation,
You hear the whispers. Your hear the rumors. Everyone is talking. Everyone is judging.
Society is slowly falling. What has the world become? All I see is hate, Where is the love?
Cracks shine through the sides only to be left A dark cloud comes through, a dissapointment They expected something different not theft Not suddenly drained of their excitement
A movie is playing Inside my mind The type I’ve come to expect Not bygone moments Captured in the essence of time No, These are the instants Which have not occurred Or may never at all
Tweedle-Dee, tweedle-dum. She lays there likes a drum, as he's pounding into her. Treating her like no one. This goes on every night, and days when Aunty is away. He rapes her and beats her, forcing her to stay.
You think you are safe you think you are sound- A place where many are not found for what they want is not what they need- but they search on in this unfamiliar place.
flooding with ignited thoughts ---you don't have to do this tons of pressure push you to the ground ---please don't stress is the leash that tightens its grip ---I will listen, I promise
No one notices how you cry at night. No one notices how your heart aches through the day. No one notices your depression.
You Make me see, see the acne,
People say I'm happy, that I'm never without a smile. I bet those people would be pretty surprised to find that I used to spend nights wishing to die. There is a mask that every person fakes,
I would change nothing Our world is the way it is A higher purpose
Sweet and kind outside Still sweet inside Stll lingering is a desire for solitude Behind My Hidden Mask Passion as an artist The thirst of a scholar The pen of a writer Behind my Hidden Mask
Modesty...What exactly is it?
I remember the first time we had sex. How you asked me if we’d ever get the chance. You said you’d tell me your “number” As if that’d be enough to convince me,
Behind this mask, No one can tell, How I play this role so well, Behind this mask, Things you would never believe, Stuff your eyes will never conceive,
something i thought for a while now,
No one's perfect, and everyone carries a mask. Scoiety's specific and judgemental, you can never do anything right. However, I think it's time, for people to unveil themselves.
I'm custom-built to expectationA situational chameleonBut no one knows,Because what they see is only what I show them
Look all around you Do you see the darkness child? Devouring us all...
They shout, we are human They shout, we are people too They shout, we love just the same as you They shout, we aren’t an accident
Behind my smiles My good deeds My leadership My love for others Behind the eyes of those who look highest of me Who seek my guidence Behind all that i am I am paranoid
Everyone knows, When they speak to me... Everyone knows My story. They know, They know, Of my travels Of my sexuality Of my hopes Of my abuse Of my greatest achievements
The tree laughs Children play below On a hot summer day so slow The tree is shade And the tree likes offering aid The tree smiles A couple look deeply into each other's souls
I crept through the halls; head down, bones protruding from my flesh; admiring those who have not been consumed by this angst I had burning inside of me. For years, I hid behind glasses of water
I live in a society of broken dolls, With broken voice boxes, Repeating words they can’t understand, Saying what they can’t mean. Parroting hopes and dreams of no one in particular,
you see the color of my skin and think that i am a threat. maybe because im taller, darker, and how my people were beat and treated like pets. i got black hair, brown eyes, and a decent mind set.
To my audience who never gets to see To the me who doesn't want to be Behind the curtains, behind the scenes To put on a show I know exactly the right words to say when to say it how to say it
Smile and wave, laugh at the jokes, If only they knew it was all a hoax. Perfect hair, Shiny nails,
The candle flame burns too hot. The flickering of its wic dances in the over heated breeze. This breeze offers no respite from the smoldering need.
I solemnly swear I will love you forever, I sincerely hope that you love me too. You say you do? I love you, too. I solemnly swear you're mine for always,
You always say “fake it ‘till you make it” i wish i didn’t have to fake it i work every day to please others

You told me I couldn't You called me stupid You made a "what not to do" example out of me And here I still stand Can a stupid kid graduate high school with a certificate in Graphic Design?
Carefully, she wraps herself in her very own, invisible cloak, one just like how Harry Potter had except not quite For only the innermost layer of her being is hidden, the one she’d only show when she was at home
The souls of masses wander lost among,
I Am Not Who I Am. By: Reid Davis The day is full of masked faces and fake smiles Being decepted for miles and miles But when the light dissapears And we're safe in our beds
When will my body ever be good enough?
Face the Facts.
Face the Facts.
Life is full of them The base that we all believe It maybe easy
Something that was given at birth Because It fits YOU
A petal is a petal A road is a road Then how come I am not you and you are not me Why do I hide? why do I fear my moves? is it cause I fear your thoughts? I dance to your beats
Understand that not everyone is the same when you think about it where did people get the "standard" for criticizing people since when did not wearing brand name clothes become the definition of
Deception and perfection are society's traits. One we love, the other we hate. It's sad how we can love one, but not the other When really they both work together. Society tells us that we need perfection
You see me ,but you do not really see the true me.
Be yourself Not like that Speak your mind Using these guidelines Express yourself How we allow you to Doublethink Before uttering a sound Rethink your idea
The clouds have veins, at the end of the day, when the sun kisses the edges, and the purple spreads along the blue, dancing on the white
This is for the girls who lie awake at night,
We are never the people we were meant to be. Bruised, torn, and can't be altered by therapy. For our brains are damaged, Brainwashed indeed. By the ones we love And by those we never see.
Haiku Freedom to express Invigorates the suppressed. Love's blind, not distressed.
“Why? It’s too much.” Why ask me again? I already told you. Red skinned, sweet sweat lines our noses My ankle propped on yours, Eyes quizzing the other’s. We don’t have the money. “But why?”
Society doesn't hate you because you try. Society hates you because you refuse to blindly follow. People who feel with the core of their being, who scream at unrighteous dealings...
Here we come, a busy people trotting to and fro. You’d never guess; we hardly let it show. In fact, I say, neither would they. They can’t tell, themselves. We’re blind and dumb,
A smile held by paper clips, is cracking near the seams. Marble eyes that grin and sparkle,
I look in the mirror You know what I see? Such an unhappy girl Staring back at me. She sits and she stares Waiting for something to change Too much darkness to bare That nests in her brain.
Get lost in the music It's the only place you can escape society The only place you can escape society's double standards To be yourself, and to coform I can't be myself if I conform

I want to dance and cry and scream, In memory of all the things we think are better forgotten. "Forgive and forget", they say. Forgive, by all means forgive, But, please don't forget?

Daily, Two sisters Meet at the mirror The mirror that contains nothing else but sorrow and pain Their eyes don't like what they see Both thinking "She doesn't know what it's like to be me"
What's a little white lie without a little fun Because 'Fun' is what life is about Nothing matters as long as you're having a good time I'll be a 'Her' instead of 'Me'
Well I've been sitting around lately
I put up a front, and i don't mean to be so blunt, but the curtain is for me. I can't look at society.
If a girl hits the floor because she hasn't eaten in three days But she's still fat Does she even make a sound? We see eating disorders and depression and anxiety Through the fucked up lense of television
Often, I'm precieved from a distance, as this average girl. I've always been this very shy, a self confomative young lady. I hope to leave a legacy. I don't wish for wealth or popularity.
Woke Up with my legs open and my mind crossed. "Boys sure do like me" "boys like me" "like me" "me" Boys like to suck me dry. my being, my spirit, my soul;

Why don't they jump rope anymore?
When you told me To grow up, I thought you meant, "Kill your heart." And so I did. Dutifully, plugged the tears until I suffocated. Cussed. Spit. Hated. (Are you proud of me?)
When I walk into work the air is cloying The musty glow of past play-sweat clinging to the air, The whipping of sugar has begun in the back Building the wispy crystals into pastel clouds
What makes me tick I haven't hands or a face like a clock Just gears in my head slow and steady whir and buzz What labels on those gears, dear
Where is the wisdom now lost? Is convenience really worth the cost? Books replaced for screens and instant streaming; Concertos and Symphonies for banging and screaming.
Love means...? I love him till that last star stops shining Bet you, he don't love you like that. Mac, your best friend It hides your scars everyday Your girls tell you,
Thousands of stories fill the pages of the newpaper. Thousands of stories stream through the news. But not one is about the girl with demons in her head The one who was called dozens of names
Just a shy girl waiting Waiting to be noticed.
You have to choose. I can't. You have to. But I can't. Because there are so many choices. So many paths I could take.
1 step forward, 3 steps back. There is an everlasting war of the world. The fight to stay relevant at such a fast pace, the attempts and wants to be desired by others, eventually brings us to our downfall.
The wall is there Looming tall and divine. Built from the bricks of adversity, Which bake in oven of pressure and worry. The wall is part of life.
I want to be successful, make a change in this world. I want to be successful not just for the diamonds and pearls. I want to be successful for my family.
What is fear? A distressing emotion aroused by impending danger, evil, pain? A threat that is real? Or imagined? The feeling or condition of being afraid.
When did this world become full of greed, wealth, and giving cruelty to the ones that don't have it? How do we give a raise to politicians, and leave our troops with no breakfast to eat?
