What's going on, I don't understand?
Oh, why, why did this have to come to be?
Why, why... Oh God, why me?
This red light around me serves as no condolence
Nor do these fellow creatures who seem so absent-minded... What!
Why does this fool get near me!? This is not something of my tolerance!
I can't take this, get out of my face! Stay away from me, go elsewhere to run amok!
Are my growls not enough to deter you from my space!?
I'm growing impatient, get away from my place!
Must I stand and scream at you to get you to go away!?
Get the message I don't want you here, or you will pay!
Stop shining that light in my face!
That's it--I'll give you a chase!
Run away you little idiot! I don't care what you do!
Or how fast you run, I'll still catch you!
I've got you, I've struck you down!
Is this what you wanted, how you want to be found!?
Die now, no more will I let you be disturbing!
With your little flashlight and gun, your foosteps near
Your WingsCan you hear all the cries?Your Wings4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Can you see the pain?
Does any of it reach you?
Through the lies and fingers pointing blame?
I opened my eyes
And saw a world full of fear
How can you watch from on high
As I lose all that I hold dear?
I'm down here on my knees
Begging you to hear my prayers
Just need to know that you're still there
Listen as I call your name so please tell me
Do you see my tears?
All I've ever wanted was your love
And to rest under the shelter of you wings
Blood stained pages full of words old as you
Cities falling and children crying
Tell me is this what you wanted us to do?
Are you watching as all mankind is dying?
Will you open your eyes?
Will you see all the pain?
Will you just stand by?
Are all the prayers in vain?
Please, I'm begging you
Take a moment and look
See those of us who still need you
Can you hear me?
I'm calling out to you
Can you see me?
I'm still right here
And I still want to rest
Beneath the shelter of your wings

They scream at me!
I meet them with a smile,
But they're never happy to see me!
Let's play a game, I know just what to do;
I'll hop on your back, and try to steer you!
Let's see just what fun we can have,
While I scratch at your face with my pretty, clawed hands!
Oops! I've run you into the fire!
Oops! I've run you into a crowd!
Oops! I've run you off of your higher,
Vantage point so we can all take you down!
Oops! I've run you into burning goo!
Oops! I've forced you over to the crying Miss!
Oops! I've lead you to my friend the Tank,
And now he'll punch you to itty-bits!
What fun, what fun, we shall always enjoy!
And now that you're broken, I won't play with you anymore!
I'm off, I'm off, to find my next friend!
So we can play the same game, all over again!

Animal TestingCan you hear them crying?Animal Testing9 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Can you feel there pain?
How would you take it?
If we did this to you?
No ones listening.
Someone's got to hear.
We can't sleep at night,
Feeling what they feel.
These nightmares keep coming,
Even once we wake.
You can stop there pain,
'Coz you're the one inflicting it.
You still stand to gain,
Find different ways of doing it.
Some ones listening.
Some ones gunna help.
Animals can't tell us,
How much pain there in.
Open up your heart,
And free them from this evil.
They didn't ask for this,
They never agreed.
So use other means of testing,
And let the animals be.
Some ones coming
Some ones trying to help.

Godzilla had danced this dance enough times to be prepared for this bout. Ghidorahs six malevolent eyes widened in shock when he saw the army of kaiju waiting to meet him. Anguirus, Gorosaurus, Rodan, Varan, Baragon, and countless other time lost dinosaurs stood by Godzillas sides, waiting to tear into the dragon. Kumonga, Kamacuras, and even Megaguirus and her swarm stood next to them with many other bug mutations. King Kong and the squabbling Gargantua brothers Sanda and Gaira pounded their chests with mammalian fury, ready for the fight. King Caesar and Biollante stood in stoic silence, silently p

Abortion -- Pro-Choice EssayThe following essay is separated into six parts, addressing concerns and opinions about the abortion debate.Abortion -- Pro-Choice Essay7 years ago in Academic Essays More Like This
Rude or hateful comments, propaganda, and spam will be hidden.
I. The important definitions of pro-life and pro-choice.
I feel this needs to be cleared up within the abortion debate. Misrepresentations of the pro-life and pro-choice positions is a root cause of abortion propaganda.
A general summation of a pro-lifer's views:
Life begins at conception. A fetus is a person. The unborn child is human. Abortion is not safe. Roe v. Wade should be overturned. The government should not fund abortions. Abortion should be made completely illegal as it is murder.
(A pro-lifer supports the life of the fetus.)
A general summation of a pro-choicer's views:
Life technically begins at conception, but the true debate should be over when personhood begins. A fetus or embryo is not a person. The unborn child is not a human. Abortion is safe. I support Roe v.

what the fuck was i thinking.
Death of an insect.Tiny little organism. So small you can walk along a single strand of hair so utterly unnoticeable .so completely insignificant. Should you go to Heaven too? What possible use would you have there? But then what possible use do humans have there? What makes your soul so different from theirs? Do you even have a soul? They seem to think not. Does this mean that I do not govern who goes but they do instead? Are they the keepers of this place? The builders? The Designers? The Creators? Everybody seems to have a different opinion about what happens when you go there, who takes you and what it all looks like. Isnt it funny how two minds can see the exact same thing differently? I think it is. Why cant we all just agree? Must you be left behind because they say it should be so?Death of an insect.6 years ago in Horror More Like This

She was sitting on the bench, swinging her legs back and forth and letting the rays of the sun hit her face. She wasn't in the usual jounin attire. Instead she had skin tight spandex shorts that came to mid-thigh, a tight tank top and her shinobi boots. Her hair was still its same, vibrant pink and still cut to her shoulders. It had been tied up an hour or so ago but that was for training with Naruto and the rest of the Konoha 11. It was the Autumn festival tonight and she had promised Ino she would go. And Ino had also told them that she would make life a living hell for Hinata, Tenten and Sakura if they didn't appear with dates for it.
This wasn't a problem for Hinata and Tenten. Hinata had Naruto. Tenten had Neji. Ino had...the entire male population up to Genma's age. Sakura had...nobody.

The Song of Aragorn and ArwenHe:The Song of Aragorn and Arwen6 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
Among the songs of waterfalls
in a valley green and fair
I sang the song of Lúthien
and spring was in the air.
Among the birches' silver trunks
I heard your silent song.
And I saw youth and innocence -
- and I felt something strong.
In that moment I lost my heart:
forever will it dwell
enchanted in your tender palm
in spring in Rivendell.
The wind sang in the mallorn leaves:
each leaf a small green gem.
I found no peace with summer breeze
in dreamy Lórien.
From distant lands under strange stars
I came weary, my feet sore.
I sought only rest from the war -
- and I found so much more...
You came to me like a king of old,
a white gem upon your brow.
And what I saw was a noble man.
And what I felt... was love.
Autumn has come to Rivendell,
the leaves wither and fall.
And I must go: to victory,
or to the end of all.
I watch you leave: as strong and wise
as a mighty king of Men.
And behind darkness, winter's chill
I hope we meet again.
LOKI: I am no demon.His green eyes flickered open, his eyelids heavy and his head pounding as though he had just woken up after a sleep that lasted weeks. The sound of someone opening a door and stepping out into the alley echoed near by as the blonde boy lay collapsed on the ground, his clothes still pulled in all different directions and his body covered in stale blood as the second man approached. He placed a large white bag in a bin, mumbling and groaning to himself until he saw the boy on the ground, pausing for a moment and nudging him with his foot, checking he was still alive.LOKI: I am no demon.6 years ago in Horror More Like This

That I have changed
And that everyone else has stayed the same
That I've evolved into something beyond
That which I used to be.
But sometimes, I like to pretend
That I'm the one who's stayed the same
That everyone else are the ones who've changed
And that's why things aren't as they used to be.
I like to pretend
That maybe someday
We'll have this whole thing rearranged
And that maybe
We won't live in a world carefree
But a world more at peace than it used to be.
That maybe we'd have finally made a recovery
That this bad economy
Was after all really just temporary
That the war would finally be ending
And we'd have just a little bit of peace
Before the next breakout of killing sprees.
I don't dream of a world where everything is fine
Because that is such a thin, thin line
That we just imagine we see.
But what I believe
Is that this world is just as it's always been
That these wars won't ever really end
That these grudges by the fine countrymen
Will be carried on by futu
SnowcoverNothing beats in the heart of winter.Snowcover5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
We keep our frozen faces
in our open cooler. So hard to dance
in the sudden dark.
We keep forgetting
time fireflies. It is the only thing
that keeps on burning.
Glowing windows frame
our oven lives. We never realize
when we are done.
Slabs of meat, solid
slabs of meat. There is no age
before the spring.
Dead people driven
from the cold. We burn or bury,
but never discard.
In the raw before the snow
all feelings shiver. The distance between
two people touching?
Come thaw, the rot is always brought to light.

A MaskIn hindsight, masquerading as a nobody was the everything in the equation.A Mask3 years ago in Romance More Like This
The entire crasis of the night folded itself into that single accessory.
Not that her first thought of the night ("This is going to be boring beyond words") gave anything away to what was destined to unfold. Rather, they were a simple confession of sorts that she had been effectively shielded from both her thoughts and her lips since Ino told her about the party.
But still, even as the word "irksome" attached itself to the idea .
Sakura smiled, amused and slightly dour, as she tied the mask across her visage.
Peering at her slightly made up features through the eyeholes, a single thought flitted across her mind:
A masked ball. It's definitely going to be a laugh.
The pink-tressed kunochi descended into a sea of strangers with only mild resentment.
After all, the dapple of mystery was just what she needed to survive the night. Her general thoughts were ill toward t
