The Square Root Of 3I fear that I will always beThe Square Root Of 36 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
A lonely number like root three.
The three is all thats good and right,
Why must my three keep out of sight
Beneath the vicious square root sign,
I wish instead I were a nine.
For nine could thwart this evil trick,
with just some quick arithmetic.
I know Ill never see the sun, as 1.7321,
Such is my reality, a sad irrationality.
When hark! What is this I see,
Another square root of a three.
As quietly co-waltzing by,
Together now we multiply
To form a number we prefer,
Rejoicing as an integer.
We break free from our mortal bonds,
With the wave of magic wands.
Our square root signs become unglued,
Your love for me has been renewed.

Unlikely ChoicesOut of over six billion people that roam the planet, what gives you, as an individual, the right to be loved?Unlikely Choices5 years ago in Philosophical More Like This
You know you're not the best. You never will be. Your life has been a wreck from the beginning, and all that time you've been running to the point of exhaustion. Running from your family. Responsibility. Yourself. This is one race track that has no finish line, my dear. You're like a bird without legs. Always on the move, never landing to take a rest. The only time you'll touch ground is when you die!
And don't even get me started on all those shames you know you'll never tell anyone. Those little secrets that eat away at your sanity when you wake in the middle of the night and cry yourself back into oblivion.
You know you're worthless. You've always known that.
Who on earth could love someone like you?
I'm inclined to disagree. You see, somebody does love me. And by thinking that I would be loved because I deserved to shows that you don't understand the concept of love

Giggles burst out,
Floating on the breeze.
Cresting the leaves,
Kissing the trees.
Filling the air with its joy,
Opening closed hearts.
Placing within them a golden spark.
Life is then sprung,
From the laugh of a child.
Wings of HopeIf I had wings,Wings of Hope5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I'd fly away from the darkness
- To my siblings.
Why can't I know what's happiness?
If I saw light,
I would make me cute and pretty;
In such a blight
Could my loved ones recognize me?
If I knew hope,
I'd find the strength to fight the fear!
I'd climb this slope
And discover you were so near
"I'm always near!
I'm in your heart when you're crying
I kiss your tears
I come to offer you my wings
- Guardian angel
- Don't cry my sweet; I'm here for you,
Do never lose your faith in you.
Bible Verse 2Shunned by everyone they once held dear,Bible Verse 25 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
they fled into the darkness,
believing that their inner light
no longer existed.
When they thought
they could no longer hold on,
He came and showed them the way.
For a single moment,
they began to think
that hope hadn't completely faded.
Then, they heard the words
that made them question
the one that showed them the light.
"Why must they hate us?
Why must they tell us
we are worthless?"
He, showing Love beyond
what the world contained,
said, "They shun you
because the Love that
I give you is coveted.
They hate you because they
hate me, because they can't understand."

`I have finally reached this place of peace,
Memories a scar on the back of my hand,
'Each scar reflecting all the trials I've been through,
These mean nothing to me, these bad memories of me,
They are the dreams that are left only to fade to gray,
I'm on my way to Paradise, my safe haven after these,
Just a simple thing to many, but to me, this is what I've always desired.'
'I've earned my stay, the ticket to my Freedom,
I now explore this new Glorious Promised land, the land I have won.
My infamous Saviour, who strayed me from my life of horror,
To Him I thank, for He led me here to rest in this silence,
For once I find it right to call something home,
I am finally at harmony with my life, comfortable with who I've become,
And now I can rest in my Paradise, for He hath saved me.

"Come closer, I'll try not to bite."
The looks on his face show me
Soul of lead,
He's worse than me.
But the crookedness of his smile reveals
His heart of gold,
He's got willpower.
He can change that.
The swollen joints of his hands tell me
Never let go,
I need someone to hold.
The scars on his legs tell me
There's so much worse left to show,
But somehow I see the best of him.
The sound of his voice
It tells me it will be
The words in his mouth,
Tell me what he's done for me
The things he thinks I can't hear.
The cuts on his neck scream
Of how he needs me,
And how he'd admit it in a second.
The circles under his eyes
Tells me that if big boys don't cry
He doesn't want to grow up.
The music in his ears tell me
He's still hung up on the past,
But he's so over it.
The shoes on his feet tell me
He'd run a thousand miles
To tell me he loved me.
The air in his lungs explain
Why he's choking
On the reasons.

Let me be a runaway.
Let me toss the fears and worries away.
Like a stone being tossed across the pond.
Let me take off my shoes and run.
Let me splash along the surf,
Like a dog taking chase.
Let me burn away this life.
Let me trade it in for something new.
Like a Father who will never leave me,
Let me feel Your loving arms around me.
Let me never hunger for anything more.
Like You hunger for only me.
Let me share this love with all those hurting,
Let me swim across the deep to do it for You.
Like You did for me.
Let me forgive so freely,
Let me love so openly,
Like You have with me, Father.
Let me settle here,
Let me never be, a runaway.
Like You've never run from me.

Falling StarI used to turn my back to the sunFalling Star6 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
not face the light of day
I used to soon go back to the moon
to later run away
I used to turn my back to the sun
and wait by the meadow
And I would watch the light going by
until I would see your shadow
Well I'm a falling star, burning up when finally shining
Because we've come too far...
I used to drink the water I'm now drowning in
I used to think my life was finally flowering
But the boat missed the shore, it's out of sight and out for more
I'm out of time, the sun has set, my only guide is a single star
But it's a falling star, burning up when finally shining
Because we've come too far, in wrong places and the wrong timing
Because we go too far...
Where is the tower?
How to find the route?

The Heavenly Spirit to You
My heart is weak but You are strong
So please help me to get along
I dont wish to take my life
But theres so much sadness and strife
Its hard to make it through the day
And my world has turned so gray
I really can only turn to You
To fix my heart as good as new
Although I know do this I must
Even You its hard to trust
Many times my heart they broke
Now strong emotions make me choke
Please help me through the day
And turn to blue my skies of gray
Im learning reading and writing too
Is no substitute at all for You
Without You I can do nothing at all
Thank You for helping me when I fall
And so in Jesuss name I pray
To help me do what you say

So alone I can hardly stand.
Sometimes I wonder if I'm all a lie,
corn and beef broth: canned.
I like to think I'm stronger,
Than people see me,
Stronger than the voice in my head,
Telling me I'm worthless,
They don't see the things I see,
The things I fight against;
They don't hear the words I hear,
When I'm standing
At that fence.
And they don't know the stains
I carry with me every day,
The darkness in my heart:
They haven't seen the poison in my veins.
I'm just as filthy,
just as sick.
I'm tired of feeling selfish,
Tired of feeling scared;
Sick of all these guilt trips,
With origins disappeared.
I need to feel alive.
I need to know you're with me.
I 'm giving up everything,
I just want to be--need to be--
So I'm crawling on my knees,
I'm shedding off this skin.
Get this poison out of me--
I can't fight against these sins.
I'm dying and I'm tired,
And I'm done with being me.
I'm done telling you I've got it,

Why is the Daisy preferred always over the Cactus?
Are they not both beautiful?
But even so the Cactus is the outcast,
even though it has more purposes than the Daisy.
Why is their blooms not marveled at like the Daisy's?
Do they not compare?
Oh how sweet and beautiful you are, lit' Daisy.
So white and pure, like the snow from heaven.
So gentle and graceful you are as you blow in the breeze,
so at peace and fearless. Unworried about life.
Little children come and inhale your scent,
and the sun washes over you like love.
Making you blossom and bloom beautifully.
Oh Daisy, what can compare?
Oh tall, strong Cactus you stand too firm.
Like a mountain unmoved and unchanged,
but you continue to grow.
Unlike other plants and life you do not need consent water.
But you constantly give it.
To the tired, to the weary and to the faint in heart you give of yourself.
They judge you by your looks, saying.
"Don't touch it, it'll prick you, just cut it down."
They do not care of the pain they leave yo
