Like it's all too much,
It's easy to think that such
A height can never be climbed.
And maybe you're right -
It's all an uphill fight,
But it's one you can win
If you go all-in,
And refuse to give up.
Nothing can make you lose
If only you choose
To believe that it's
Never the end.
If you can't reach the top,
Remould your mountain
And make it into your thrown;
Make your life your own.
You can do it.

Roses and CoffeeMasarm takes his coffee blackRoses and Coffee21 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
like the collar of his favourite shirt
and the shadow of childhood;
Sally tempers the tartness of taste
with salt and sugar-crusted
petals of roses in her cup.
When he's angry, Masarm
burns fiercely, a brooding
that bites only himself, and Sally,
when she's angry, spits
acid and flings plates
that shatter over his head.
Still, somehow it's always Masarm
who sends flowers; Masarm
who swallows down the bitterness.
The BoyOnce upon,The Boy19 hours ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
so back in time,
I met a boy
so fun, so bright
He made me laugh,
he span me round
We got on well
Oh dear! What a sound!
But he was gone
No feelings hurt,
was just a flirt
All was well,
friends we still were
But gods were watching
so cruel, so naughty
the boy I met once again
this time to be more than flirt
He was happy
and so was I,
such a joy
hard to come by
He whispered softly,
made me dream
And what a dream,
it was to be
He made me hope
and long and care
as long as it lasted
Oh gods! I dare!
But gods were cruel
and he was gone
No time to spare,
I was a heft,
the hope crashed,
the dream; it burned
This time it hurt,
no more a flirt,
the darkness came
and tears; such shame
I saw him again,
in the arms of another
Words cannot tell
how I recovered
Years went by,
the boy was gone
But gods were watching,
we couldn't move on
A present they gave
to our hearts both
our paths crossed
our fates; one oath
once again the boy I met
he had grown; now a man
this time he's different

You took your seat in the waiting area of the S.H.I.E.L.D. headquarters. You had stayed up most of the night, reading all the files that were on the drive Fury had given you. It had been extremely interesting and you had taken in every word very carefully, thinking they might ask you about it today.
You rubbed the sleep from your eyes and took a sip from the coffee you had gotten on your way over. Several men and women were sitting next and opposite of you. Some sat confident and comfortable in their chair, but some – like you – kept wiping their sweaty palms against their legs in an attempt to lose their nerves.
You had no idea what kind of training you would be going through, but the man and woman next to you had been talking about some kind of specialized test for the last five minutes. They had practiced their gun and knife skills for months and here you were not even having considered you’d be doing any fighting.
You sighed, taking another sip of your coffee. Fur

but what is with this silence?
My complaints for the intelligent designer are more or less about expiration dates;
still I'd ask for my hills back
or at least that moment they stretch and roll in the spotlight,
and that forest-fire dusk that's really a crowd waiting to see me on the other side.
And if you're there, if you're reading this,
thank you for the sound of cars, for the chatter of birds,
for that day after the results came back when I finally understood what you meant
about being surrounded and massacred by music.
And I suppose nevertheless in some sense we will make it.
Survival is what we do.
Even the two fallen Beatles are haunting this poem.
I am terrified of living forever, and terrified of dying soon, so forgive me for not picking a team in your holy war.
But if I die in the middle of this, or fuck it in the next few months,
it was all lies and metaphors and my ghost will deny everything.

A door burst open in a dimly lit catacomb as a rather small man clad in full blue armor, his face obscured by his horned helmet, crashed through, clutching a shovel that was planted in to a zombie’s neck.
“Haha!” the blue-armored knight laughed haughtily, “So the rumors were true! There is treasure and adventure to be had in this land of Skyrim!”
He looked upon a massive double-door. That could only be the door leading to the treasure! He’d heard rumors about what was inside this particular catacomb, but they were all conflicting.
Some said it was riches untold and too vast for any man to comprehend.
Others said it was a weapon of an unsurpassable make that could make one a King among men.
Still others said it was a power that would cause the one worthy to wield it to

‘Perfect!’ You thought to yourself while admiring the outfit in the mirror. It wasn’t too extravagant, but not far from elegant enough either. The clothes were pretty new and they were matching perfectly. Your hair was nicely brushed and everything little detail was planned. Only, what was all the fuss about? Why were you dressed like this? You see, lately you’ve been pretty busy with either school projects, helping your parents around the house or doing voluntary work for the community. Your schedule has been so full recently, that you’ve kind of neglected the precious time you should have spent with your friends, the Nordics. And as a way to make it up to them, you’ve decided to pay them a surprise visit.

It was just another beautiful day in Ponyville, Celestia's sun was shining brightly, the birds were singing, and the ponies were happily going about their ways like it was any other day.
However little did they know that this was not any other day, as it would soon turn out this day a epic battle would take place that would easily bend reality and risk the lives of millions.
It began the moment the enquines laid eyes on the new visitor that arrived to the humble town. The ponies all stared at this weird ape like creature in red spandex as he causally pranced around like it was nobody's business, none of the ponies knew what his goal was or how he arrived in Ponyville. But the one thing was certain was that the ponies of town were too scared to even dare speak to it.

Back to the future ain't McFly as you thought it was
But don't resort to getting high just to fight the lows
Cause it'll hit you where it hurts when the low blows
No matter what, don't forget that you're a man's man
Depend on no one but always give a helping hand
Stay positive and don't forget the good ones
Family first, don't forget to be a good son
Be you and don't ever seek approval, your path is fruitful
One day you'll make something beautiful
Respect women, but never give a thot a thought
More than meets the eye but deceptive as an autobot

Don't trust the fakes around you, just a bunch of acting niggas
Don't fake a living for a living just to live how you're living
