The Truth to LifeDo we have a purpose, is a question one will often askThe Truth to Life10 years ago in Open More Like This
Is there a higher power out there, some greater task
The truth will hurt many, not only a few
People have a hard time dealing with that which is true
There is nothing greater that watches your back
Deal with it, stop crying and build your own stack
You are responsible for the life that you lead
It is not someone else's fault when you don't get what you need
If one wants the stars, they must be grabbed by one's own hand
Nothing in life is freely given there is no promised land
So the question remains, why are we here
For those without faith, the answer is painfully clear
We live only for today and if we are lucky the morrow
To us there is no afterlife, but that brings us no sorrow
Self improvement is our main goal and it starts in the here and now
We refuse to be filled with illusions of grandeur and get fat off them like a cow
The best of us seek improvement in every area we can
Without the proper balance of self there can be no co

Life is the space between your ears,
Life is the song that no one hears,
Life is the place that only you know,
Life is the grass growing through snow,
Life is the touch of a lover's hand,
Life is a castle melting in sand,
Life is the laugh that's stuck in your throat
Life is a poem that god wrote
Life is the shiver on a warm night,
Life is like death, only not quite.

I look at the stars and feel very small;
just a tiny consciousness.
But if I were as tall as a planet,
I would still be short in comparison to the universe.
I see a person twice my size
and I feel weak and fragile.
But if I were strong and powerful,
I would still not be invincible.
I see a painting by the hand of a genius,
and I feel inexperienced and ignorant.
But if I were the greatest artist alive,
it would not make me love what I do any more or less.
I see blood, running from the wound of another,
and I feel a chilling fear from deep within.
But if I walked this earth with bravery,
it would not make things less dangerous.
I see a baby, innocent and naive,
and I feel cynical and jaded.
But if I saw through untainted eyes all my life,
it would not make the world a better place.
I see a raindrop, tear of the sky,
and I feel ugly and unsightly.
But if I were as beautiful as rain,
it would not make me crystal clear inside.

What is life?
I don't know.
Life is just…life.
It starts, and it ends.
But what is it like?
It's not like time. Time cannot be stopped. Life can.
Yet, it's like a river. Rivers can be controlled. Life can be controlled.
So is life like a river? Nah.
It's not like a river, and it's not like time…
What is life? What is it like?
Well, I'd say…
Life is whatever you want it to be. Good or bad.
No one else can make you change how your life is except you.
The question now is…
What DO you want it to be?
It's your choice. Make it a good one.

A movie played inside my mind.
Ive traveled the seas in half the time
Without ever leaving home.
Ive spread my wings but didnt fly
Ive touched heaven, but I didnt die
Had the chance to ask God why
Without ever receiving an answer.
Ive count the stars and made to ten
Lost track and had to start again.
People laughed, but thats how we make friends
Without ever knowing their name.
Ive loved completely and watched them leave
I tell the storysome dont believe
Let them go or did you flee?
Without seeing what tomorrow brings.
Ive cried like I would never smile
Walked in darkness for half a mile
Saw the sun in the distance for a small while
Without ever feeling its rays.
Ive walked the beachestasted the breeze
There was a time that Ive felt free.
Touched my soul and let life be
Without any regrets to hold.
Ive laughed until I could not breathe

Its been said,

The ones that lost a parent,
there heart was torn away....
What is she to do?
The one that changed to home schooling...
She has problems with friends.
Now she cant find any......
The one who's friends are now doing drugs,
There losing close friends......
They change to,
smoking and alcohol
The one that is alone most of the time.
He is only known mostly threw the net....
Other than that he's really unknown....
What's he to do?
The one that almost died.....
I don't have to say any more with this one.
They are in so much pain,
it hurts to think on.
i guess the question is.....
Why all this.
Will it end......
Will I or they live,
to see an other day?
Its way to hard!!!
It seems we are waiting to die.
Why, you ask your self,
the tear roles down your face.
Looking at the ground,
you never knew what you missed

so they force me to be the person they want to see.
they don't see that their effect was reversed
or that my breaking point has been traversed.
I feel as though my mind is slowly being erraticated
and my once strong body painfully mutilated.
because of my affiliations,
i have suffered through many tribulations.
I want to just lay down and die
and let my soul drift towards the sky.
but i know it's not my time quite yet,
for i still have goals that need to be met.
So until i finish my final task,
a little peace is all i ask.
i do not wish to cause any strife,
i just want you to get out of MY LIFE!!!
LifeMy fingers twisted in the sheets underneath me, tears smearing down the flushed curves of my cheeks. Unable to control my sobs I collapsed forward, why did this have to be so hard? Wasnt my life supposed to be mine? Wasnt it supposed to be fun but it wasnt, at least not to me. Every day my heart aches; I see pain, hear anger and feel hurt. No matter where I go it always seems to be the same; even my friends have had enough at times.

Flipping onto my back I stare at the ceiling, I go through these emotions almost every day. Sure there are good times, laughing with my friends or smiling brightly as I make some random and slightly perverted remark, the good times are what make me go on.
Staring into the blinding whiteness of my celine I try to think of those friends I love, they criticize me, they are harsh sometimes but they are also truthful. That is what makes them them. I am not

Like sheep in a field.
We all want to be the same.
Because at the end of the day,
Life's a copycat game.
We must all be thin.
Straight hair, teeth white.
What if I don't beleive it.
I think your rules are shite.
So what if I'm different?
Not a brick in the wall.
So what if my clothes are wrong.
And my hands are not small.
People spend their lifes,
Beleiving labels and books.
Don't care about inner beauty.
Only care about looks.
And when it's all over.
And you go to your place.
History won't remeber you.
For joining the fashion race.

But I hate when you ignore
I hate when you don't return my emails
And I hate when you don't call
I hate the way you avoid my eyes
When I'm trying to look into yours
And I hate what you say behind my back
And all the trouble that you cause
I hate the dot to dot acne just above your nose
And I hate your nearly-a-monobrow too
I hate the way you're so selfish
And how it always has to be about you
But mostly I hate that none of this is true
And the fact that I hate myself
For not being to hate you

Cause life is a whore; whos slipping out of her black dress.
She'll fuck you over and spit you out;
so hold on tight and- find something you can care about.
Life's a bitch, and I'm sure you know it;
Everyday there's a million little ways she'll show it.
She'll stick her nose up at starving kids.
And offer up people to the highest bids.
She'll scoff at families in broken homes,
and laugh at the pitfalls in the paths we roam.
Yeah life is a sadist; she loves our pain.
She runs through the warzones,And dances in the crimson rain.
She feeds on anguish; and she'll drink up our tears.
Loves to layer her abuse, into our darkest fears.
If the Earth is the 'mother', and Time plays 'dad';
Then life is the daughter that they both wish they never had.
We treat her like shit, and we throw her away;
then somehow wonder how she got this way.
Life is in pain, her beauty blemished by madness.
Holding to flickering joy while engulfed by sadness.
Even when she hurts y

You don't have to be happy to smile
So ask someone
Are you happy?
Give them a hug
No matter their mood
Tell them you love them
Even if you don't
Spread the happiness
The feeling of being cared for
Spread the love
To even your worst enemies
No matter who they are
They still need to be loved
Go out there and give some hugs
Give a real smile
Say a few kind words
Just spread the happy

I love you.
Yes it is true.
I really do.
I am talking about you, there, reading this.
Hopefully you are reading this.
Because it is meant for you.
Oh, and that heart ^up there.
I drew that for you.
Then played with it to make it look slightly special.
I love you with ALL my heart.
That is why i was made.
As a human being made in God's image.
To love you, and cherish you.
Because I truly love you and want you happy.
I will be here for you.
Even when you can be a jerk sometimes.
I forgive you and keep loving.
Everyone needs to think in the way of love.
So everyone could be happier, and not sad all the time.
I will always love you.
But NEVER as much as my Father can love you.
He loves you so much more.
He died for you.
People are just scared to face the fact.
But we will still be here to love you.

and stole her away in the darkness
they took her to the highest hill
and they split her open
they took out all the glittering tears
and the metallic pain
they cleaned out her heart
rid it of broken dreams
and the memories of nights
where she cried herself to sleep
camera in hand
and they began their work
they filled her head full of rainbow kisses
and shining smiles
they didn't know what to do with her heart though
it was too broken to use
so they left it out
and put a ticking tocking clock in it's place
so that she wouldn't be troubled by the overpowering sadness
or the need to skydive and see if she could fly
they stiched her back up with the pink ribbon
they had taken from her wrist
thinking it meant nothing
and they placed her back in her bed
and when she woke in the morning
she felt lighter
she sat smiling at school and talking loudly with her friends
but when she returned home that night
she found the pink ribbon
