Who complain about abortion,
They put some cells before a life,
And chastise a woman for her choices.
They must not understand,
How it feels to be judged,
To be hated or shunned down upon.
Or deprived of love."
But get this straight right now,
Because that’s not at all true
I have a really good feeling,
You don’t know what we go through.
Pro- life isn’t about abortion,
Whether a fetus is alive or not,
It has a much more deeper meaning,
And it would help to give it some thought.
Pro-life fights for those,
Who are alone, depressed or scared
Who think death is the only way,
To get them anywhere.
Prolife fights for those,
Who are beaten, for their orientation
or those who are looked down by the nation.
Pro life fights for those,
Who starve in other countries,
Why do you think Catholic Groups,
Go to feed the poor and hungry?
Prolife fights for those,
Who simply have nothing left,
Who are alone in the world,
And are welcomed by onl
Breathing Glass.Breathing Glass.2 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Is it odd that I guessed my fate before I could even piece it together?
With my father and his cruel teachings.
My mother and her superiority.
My brother and his anger.
My sister and her detachment.
I've been smiling this whole time..
This whole time!
But that's all I ever did.
Not breathing, not catching a breath.
But now, I understand why I didn't.
For each time I breathed, I breathed glass.
Sharp pointed shards.
Piercing my throat, cutting my tongue, blood gushing from every slash.
Thick crimson lava dripping down to my adam's apple.
Blood flying out with each cough.
Oh-how this pain defines me!
Oh-how I wish it didn't.

Please heal my broken heart.
Please free these chains,
That are ripping me apart.
Take me away from the dark,
Please illuminate my path.
Please just give me a spark,
So I may again feel your wrath.
Give me life or give me death,
Please remove me from the middle.
Please put me to my place of rest,
So that I may sleep just a little.

“Get off my back!”,
Pushing and pushing,
Not a single chance.
Burden, oh burden,
So useless you are,
No one will hear,
You were not heard then.
Adding more weight,
I still feel light,
Gone, be gone,
The burden I hate.
Fall and break,
Burden me back,
Are those your tears?
Fake, they are fake.
Toss my burden,
Add some from yours,
My burden will not mind,
If the burden grows.

A line out, the wrong word, I pay the fines.
My friends have been taken by the war hound,
alas peace and love are yet to be found.
A hand stretched out, a last hope in lost vain.
Foes and Allies I give a loving smite,
For creating a holy putrid fight.
I Know You Are ScaredI know you are scared, because I am scared too.I Know You Are Scared6 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I know you don't know that you know what to do.
I know you're alone, I know you are weary.
I know you are scared because the world is so scary.
I know you have wandered, I know you are lost, and
Looking for hope can be quite exhaustin'.
I know you are tired, you just want to sleep.
I know you feel broken, I know you feel weak.
You wake in the same way, and sometimes you cry.
You just wanted to rest, you just wanted to die.
I know you seek respite from that bright happy sky.
But you keep pushing forward, though you cannot see why.
I know youa re frightened, life makes that happen.
You just want a warm bed, and a blanket to wrap in.
You just want to sleep, you just want to stop.
You've sojourned so far, you just want to drop.
I know you are scared, I am scared too.
I wish I could help, but there's naught I can do.
So I'll write you these words, I'll pen up this poem,
And perhaps with these rhymes, you'll feel less alone.
Black AutumnThe leaves fall to the ground, torn apart with holesBlack Autumn10 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Mist makes it hard to see
The solid ground freezes
It's the perfect time, 'cause everything dissloves
There, where we just stood, doesn't matter anymore, it doesn't exist no longer
Let the wind carry my thoughts away
Like all the countless leaves, with faded colors
I don't want them anymore
Let the mist draw the world in a different way
Maybe, then we won't see eachother at all anymore
Let the cold make my hands get numb and unfeeling
To get rid of any temptation
It's a shady time
Candles are the only light, to keep us from losing the way completely
Let us drown, what once was there
Somewhere in black waters
And just forget about it
In time snow will coat it and alleviate the wounds
Mein schwarzer Herbst
Die Blätter fallen zu Boden, kaputt und zerrissen
Nebel erschwert die Sicht
Und der Untergrund gefriert
Es ist die perfekte Zeit, denn alles löst sich auf
Rash DecisionI found the letter I wrote you, years ago.Rash Decision16 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I can't believe, how I let my heart show...
Dropped my built up barriers and walls...
Set myself up, for the hardest of falls...
Exposed my secrets, to your ridicule.
I was a damned, insane, romantic fool.
I'll toss my hasty words, into the fire.
Let them burn, like my burnt out desire.
You always threw water on my flames...
And thwarted all my amorous aims.
Now, so much wasted time has passed...
The distance between us is vast.
In a feat, that wasn't miniscule...
I broke every carefully crafted rule,
I had set, for myself to follow...
So I wouldn't be forced to swallow,
The bitter pill, of your laughter...
And be dubbed a clown, thereafter.
How could I ever have revealed...
Parts of me, I completely concealed?
You didn't care...you only scoffed...
Nervously cleared your throat, and coughed.
I desire to forget there was a day,
I recklessly gave my soul away.

and I'll be falling with none to catch me,
cause I would have dug this hole,
and now I can't get out.
I'm afraid that,I'll be trapped.
And never get a chance.
Miss the little things in life,
never getting to smile.
I'm afraid I'll never finish my mission.
That I'll be so caught up in blindness,
that I won't see whats in front of me
PettyWonder, will you look this way?Petty2 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Other than to smirk and say
"Rightful is this pain you feel,
Truth be told, it’s not surreal.”
However you can try to hide
Leave ambivalence tucked inside
End this silly little plight
Suicide may suit you, right?
Succeed for me, if just for spite.
Your Distrust In MeIt's hard to put this into words so I'll say this straight,Your Distrust In Me3 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Girl you were the one who would never show up late.
The one that would be there when my overcast got me back then,
And now it's simply matter of time before I shatter again.
I understand it's in your nature to walk away from those you distrust,
I don't blame you for shutting me out after I walked all over us.
But you need to know that right now the world is against me,
And it's an eye opener to experience the world when I'm no longer free.
Maybe it's a feeling of despair and I'm just stringing you along in fear,
But it's a feeling that won't subside especially now you're nowhere near.
So tell me what should I say and what should I do now you're gone,
Because it's a life of uncertainty without you where I don't belong.

Another sibling by one's side
Gusts blew away some leaves
A hope came someone receives
Melodies play as holidays followed
Then a hint of pain foreshadowed
Yet a smile that came among one's face
Relieved some other's long grimace
The first snow came right that evening
Amongst the chaos, a hope came being
A bundle of books upon a bed
Laughter came that made that hope spread
The words that seemed left unspoken
Were turned into a heart unbroken
The tears left that won't be missed
Will be healed and pain soon drifted

You know you're screwed when the devil hates you
You're stuck drifting around after death,
Eternal Damnation, I deserve a longer sentence
For nor hell nor heaven is there entrance
And people shame you for penance
Hello World, I'm your menace
Crazy and Insane, It's not like I can feel pain
Blue and Green planet, yet I'm the biggest rotting stain
Counting the moments, sensing your presence
And when the world ends I'll exact my vengeance

Thought you were gone for good
Didn’t think you would
Never thought you should
Come back to me
Now that you’re home
A place to call your own
I feel so alone
You were the guy
That gave me butterflies
Now I don’t understand why
Why my heart begins to cry
It’s like my heart said goodbye
But, my heart still denies
What’s right in front of my eyes

He calls out a name, he cannot find.
Walking alone, intent on his search
He hears a voice, he cannot find.
He turns to look behind, but sees nothing
This mysterious lingering voice, he cannot find.
From out of nowhere, his quarry appears
He sees the one, he cannot find.
They stare at each other, in total silence
He has found the one, he cannot find.

Tears run down my face in streams,
reflecting my blackened soul.
I'm caught in guilt while my heart silently screams.
I look at my beloved and he looks at me, and we realize that we are each other's broken promises and unfulfilled dreams.
I am not the same as I was before and I never will be, not anymore.
