The Truth to LifeDo we have a purpose, is a question one will often ask
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

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

Life is...Sometimes I wonder: what am I?Life is...5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
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.

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!!!

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.

Pictures, and in movies
In poetry and books
I'm so sick of suicide
It's pathetic and it's weak
Blah blah blah so awful
Outlook always bleak
This life's just not worth living
Could they be any more cliché'?
I know that I just can't go on
Isn't that what they say?
Do you live in China
Without freedom's basic choice?
Are you a woman in Afghanistan?
Forbidden to have a voice.
Are you starving now in Africa?
Surrounded by disease
Or under corrupt dictatorship
Forced upon your knees
These people rise to challenges
We cannot comprehend
They live their lives from day to day
And triumph in the end
But daddy won't buy me the car
He promised me last fall
Oh what now am I to do?
I'll have to end it all.

She loves him more than me
I'll bleed until I'm empty
Then she'll finally see.
I'm so sick of suicide.

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.

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.

I thought and thought on what to give you,
Nothing special came to mind.
Then I realized, cause I love you,
I think I'll just give you something
To make you feel like you can fly.
A crush is fleeting, like summer memories,
Lust fades, like a tan in the winter.
Infatuation can melt, like ice,
And leave you empty, as black as white.
But love is forever, like a diamond,
Love is what I give.
People wonder why I love you,
Wonder what you have to give...
But I just smile, because, no matter what,
I love you for you, thats all it is.

Fulfillment that is far beyond

Cheap and tawdry are her treasures
Though they're all that we can see

So I give me to you!

Your presence is what keeps me sane.
You stroke my hand; wipe hair from my face,
Even talk to the man whose words I dread.
He walks in today, with his clipboard in hand,
Turns to look at me and flashes a quick smile.
I smirk back, but my eyes drop to the clipboard.
Now I know that my fate is planned.
You stand to meet him and you start to talk,
Then he replies as though Im not here
Shes doing well. Her life signs are better.
He looks at me. Looks at you. Then motions for a walk.
I am not invited since I havent moved in weeks,
Still Ive come to know my room well.

I twiddle my thumbs, till around the door you peek.

Although its different from its regular state, Im filled with hope.
Could this mean my results are negative?
Well get our lives back to normal after this long testing trial.

Memorys of scars, running through the mind.
Just smile for everyone.
Prove your strength, because no-one will leave you then.
Does it really matter what they have said?
Take anyone who offers you friendship,
But trust them with nothing.
This world brings you up with hope,
Then crushes it all.
Still we enjoy it,
Because our lives are so short.
So why take them?

Even if I'm different.
I guess no-one could ever change it but me.
Believing the lies was step one,
But faking a smile, to make others happy was step two.
Why don't I cry for help?
It's not possible now is it?
Moving on, never looking back was step three.
Still you cry when head's our turned.
Even if they notice, lies are given once more.
Can't this world be perfect?
Ended it all.
If nobody stops me, it will keep going.
If nobody wants me, it will keep going.

to help you stand out and remain unforgettable.
The type of work that's so difficult to define.

Average work that makes you blend in with others
that gives one average recognition and reward

Not tear you down
