land of the west,
why don't you rest?
land of the west,
Wars never ended
forget we lest
Ages of the dark,
twilight of the cross,
A promising new world,
pirates hold your loss
Colonies of blood,
massacres at the east,
Watch your right hand,
it follows the beast.
Years of division,
the breaking of the wall,
Only now a decision,
no enemy, your ball.
dance of the north,
Keep up your faith,
hold down your sword
union at last,
Love your people,
learn from your past
In what you believe?
This can't be your plan,
What you release?
You can't rule the sun.
land of the west,
why don't you rest?
Let's TalkWhen you’re a girl, you get asked the same question a lot.Let's Talk4 days ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Personally, I’m damn tired of talking about this.
Let’s talk about something else.
Let’s talk about how lipstick doesn’t seal girls’ mouths shut so that they can’t debate politics.
Let’s talk about how mascara doesn’t blind us to the problems of the world and eyeliner doesn’t draw a line through our potential.
Let’s talk about how eyeshadow doesn’t blur the lines of textbooks.
Let’s talk about how painted fingers can still type and foundation can cover up scars, too.
Let’s talk about how earrings don’t deafen us and necklaces don’t silence our voices.
Let’s talk about how being blonde doesn’t make us dumb.
Let’s talk about how taking a selfie doesn’t make us worthless and dresses don’t make us mindless.
Beauty or brains?
Stop asking and watch us be both.

I walked into my house in Panama city florida. I lived in a little house not far from a public beach. my cat baby walked up to the door and meowed a loud meow. "baby you need me to check for you?" baby meows. "alright fine" I walk over to check the door. no one. "baby there is NOBODY there." I sat down. it was a Friday afternoon in may. summer vacation was here. I turned on the t

I come with knives so I am ready
fresh from my back for your ternary spine.
Each head is a year I will
never see again,
yet I find myself allowing more to be taken.
I have lain between the lion's claws
and found them comforting.
We both mediate between Hades
the bark is truly worse than the bite.
Twelve months and Twelve Labours later
It is still working-
The Gods are cruel creatures.

Or even a good man
Many people hate me
Except for you
You with the grey-blue eyes
You with the now blue hair
You who lives miles away
With a sea keeping you from me
All i want is you
I need you more and more
Everyday i pray for the day
I wake next to you...
I'm FreeAfter the incidentsI'm Free6 days ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
After the fight
After the punishment
I've lost my sight
But I'm not dead
No, not even close
But they got it through my head
I'm not changed
But now I couldn't see
What the dreadful God had in store for me
In life, I chose to stay
But I had to move away
From my home
Where you were
And now our feelings were reversed
You're happy, I'm scared
They're following me everywhere
Making sure I don't make friends
They 'don't want another life to end'
But I'm blind, can't they see?
Now I'll never be set free
I can never see you again
You know I miss you, friend.
It's been 10 years.
They finally let go of their fears.
It's about time.
I was finally free
I could finally see
You stood in front of me
Anger and fear in your eyes
I was the one person you dispised
I love you (Go away!)
I really do (You're INSANE!)
I adore you, through and through~ (I have to see you?! WHAT A SHAME!)
The fire crackled
The flames burned
A new leaf was something I didn't
Notebook poemShe walks into my roomNotebook poem2 days ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
And asks whats all this about
We both lie there in silence
Waiting for her to scream and shout
But instead she smiles
A smile that stretches so long
And she utters as she leaves
"I knew it all along"
So there we sit lying
in my oh so comfy bed
and after a few minutes
we both adjust our heads
We look each other in the eye
Had we not just been caught
like some criminal or thief?
and yet there we lie
we had heard what she said
so now we relax slightly
and once more cuddle in bed
This is how I wish it'd go
A moment just like this
but alas life doesn't work that way
so we settle for a secret kiss
But these kisses hold so much
secret or not
because no matter hoe many know or don't
it will always mean a lot
these kisses show our love
these kisses and so much more
and slowly we wont have to worry
about anyone coming through the door.

To surpass success
and improve perfection.
This is our goal.
Although seemingly impossible;
deep within our soul
anything is optional.
Who? What? Where? When? And Why?Who? What? Where? When? And Why?10 hours ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
The first question is who.
Who will fill this empty seat?
A friend or a stranger?
The second question is what.
What will they look like?
Picture perfect or just "okay"?
The third question is where.
Where will you meet?
The place you dreamed of or the place you thought you'd never be?
The fourth question is when.
When will you meet?
When you still believe in finding the "one" or when your heart believes it is done?
The fifth and final question is why.
Why will you stay?
Why will you allow them to fill the empty seat?
Because you just felt like it or
Because they are the who, what, where, when, and why that you’ve been waiting for.

That FallOf all the memories that I have, there is one I'll always take with meThat Fall2 days ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
So many great things that I've seen, but none compare to true beauty
And so it was autumn twenty twelve
My nerves were high, but I was well
Go laugh at me, you never understood
How fall leaves can fill me with good
That fall gave me reason to love myself
In any state in sickness and in health
I seen so many parts of the world, I'm fortunate
Of this I know I'll never forget
Fall gave me friends, family as well
It took me out of my living jail
This is not a tall tale, this is my life
Well at least it was until winter came to inflict fear
And so the snow covered the ground, and went on to freeze my tears
I stood in depression, for weeks on end
I couldn't bring myself to let someone in
With all the people I had met, I miss them much but I don't call
It came to my attention that they should rise and I shall fall
They were so kind, they changed my life
With them I tried to do what's right
But old habits die hard, so
La Paradoja Translated- The ParadoxChiaroscuro,La Paradoja Translated- The Paradox3 days ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Light and Shadows,
a silence punctuated by a scream.
We must not forget that darkness
does not equate to Hell,
just as light does not equate
Velvet and lace,
the saint and the sinner,
the comforting proximity
of a distant wound.
Such sweet suffering;
like a snakebite,
juicy and wet with lifeblood,
dripping as the bitten, aroused organ.
Bright and intense,
dark and subtle,
this life of contrasts.
The Leather RemembersIt was just a piece of leather, stretched over a bench press bed.The Leather Remembers4 days ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Old, broken, and cracked, it was 'bout to be declared dead.
All those men and women, they lay upon its skin,
They breathed and they pushed, just trying to be thin.
Their work and their sweat, their blood and their tears,
Their oils keeping this leather plush all those long, hard years.
Why did they do it? Why work so hard?
They were sick of being called a fat tub of lard.
Some o' those folks are dead,
Some have families and dogs named Fred.
Some of them gave up,
Some said, "never enough"
The leather remembers.
The leather remembers when you couldn't lift just the bar,
The leather remembers when you could lift a whole car.
No matter who laid on this old cow's hide,
The leather remembers who they were inside.
The years of use wore an impression, an outline, a silhouette,
of every man
and every woman.
The leather doesn't care if you're white, or black, or brown, or green.
The leather gains from you a nice, pretty sheen.

teen hospitalize 4 being out past town curfewCLAIRTON, PA — A teen’s evening excursion for ice cream resulted in her going to the hospital in a neck-brace, after police found her and her friends in public just a few minutes past the government-imposed curfew for minors.teen hospitalize 4 being out past town curfew6 days ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
The incident happened on Tuesday, July 15th, 2014, when 17-year-old Merceedez Wright and her friends decided to finish their evening with a stop for dessert.
It was just past 10:00 p.m., the hour in which the town of Clairton (pop. 6,700) had arbitrarily declared that people under the age of 18 must not be found in public under penalty of law. The ordinance (and all such curfews) directly violates the individuals’ right to travel and peaceably assemble.
The Clairton Police Department saw the young-looking group of individuals and began hassling them about being in public past the legally-enforceable bedtime. Pittsburgh’s KDKA reported what happened after police initiated contact.

Through the night
It will continue in daylight
Rebounds off the walls
Echoing through roofless halls
Past the trash
Kicking up dust and factory ash
Goes the stray hound's paws
Smelling the city with slightly open jaws
Just FeelCryJust Feel17 hours ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
That’s what I tell myself,
But why do I have the right to cry,
I did this to myself,
I’m the one, who broke my world apart,
It’s not that simple
To let go
To feel the brokenness inside
To know this was my fault
I’ve been broken before
I’ve survived it before
I can remain strong
No need to cry
It’s all I want
To cry and feel the pain
Maybe then it’ll be easier
Knowing that I’m working on getting better
But if I feel the pain
Will I stop being strong
Will I feel the urge again
I can’t fall backwards
I have to stay strong
There is no other option for me
I can’t cry or feel pain
I must keep smiling
A Death of a FriendshipA Death of a FriendshipA Death of a Friendship2 days ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
“I feel nothing”
That's what I was told
“All the times I've spoken to you and now there is nothing, I don't feel anything”
So is that it?
So is that the end of our friendship?
After all I did this is how it goes?
I did as I was told
I did a lot of good things
And now I am being told I am nothing?
You didn't say that
You didn't had to
But it sure felt that way
I know I've made mistakes
I know I am an idiot
Surely I can't be punished for those things?
I try to be good
I try to do right
No matter what I just can't fix it
What must I do?
What must I prove?
To show that I am a good friend?
I guess it really has come to that point in life
A friendship forms but then dies after all this time
I wish it never had to be this way
If so then do an old friend a favour, say it now and have done with it, don't punish me any farther.

I pray Favor and Grace on our Nation Lord
I pray for the right attitude to receive your word Lord
And to receive your gifts and blessings Lord
That the floodgates of heaven will overflow
And our virtues will call out your name Lord
That when we speak
That when we act
That when we love and work in you Lord
All the earth shall see and come to you Lord
Lord we raise up to you our broken hearts
We raise up to you our broken families
Our broken minds and broken souls Lord
That they might be salt for us to pursue you further farther until death Lord
You do not come from a bad place Lord but from heaven you are sent
And so we know that all that comes down from the Father is good
We speak gratitude on your pure character
And give alms to you in your house
May the fields be ripe for harvest Lord
Grain fruit herb fungi and vegetable of every kind Lord
May the wine presses and canneries overflow with the Lost who have found Christ
May their heads and hearts and souls be steeped in

Donned in clothes of Darkness,
Hiding in Shadow's womb.
Girl with the Hair,
Dark as Midnight Blue-
Your eyes in the Darkness,
Like a Lighthouse on the Shoals:
A Raging Blaze-
Within Eyes and Mind.
A Voice Underspoken.
I deign myself to ask:
May you Let Me Understand?
Hiding behind the Curtains,
Dark as Midnight Blue-
How might the World of Scarred You,
With wings you may soar,
And yet you Dare not Fly,
As if you watched Icarus
Dive into the Watery Blue.
Girl with Hair,
Dark as Midnight Blue:
Your Eyes speak a Thousand Speeches,
Yet you utter none.
You have let the world Define you,
And yet your Mind defines your World.
I know not what Holds you Down,
I know not what Holds you Back,
But I have seen behind that curtain
Of Midnight Blue.
I have seen a Passion;
So Therefore Stride Forth,
So therefore Strike Forth,
The words that assail you mean naught.

Broken LessonI realize, that time is not kindBroken Lesson3 days ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Yet it bears a great volume of gifts
So quaint and curious
Imploring, entreating, grow these gifts of mine
Reconciling, I grow hesitant
All I know is this stranger
Upon my knocking door you came
Only one word was meekly spoken
Becoming placid, I hold steady
Ever wreary of time passing by
All at once my strength was mustered
My lips parting, yet no vowel expressed
At my door, I grow restless
Your ominous glow ever fancy
Time bears gifts for all to grasp
Hopefully, I learn them all
Hastily I realize
Friendship is the greatest gift of all
"Hello," I scarcely muttered in reply
