It takes more strength to love than hurt
It takes more strength to save than destroy
It takes more strength to rebuild than collapse
It takes more strength to fight than give in
I know how stubborn you are though so, before you go; answer me a question, heart to heart, to your friend?
I remember one of the strongest people in my life but, maybe it is I who is distorted.
Did I befriend a coward?

"Well there goes that idea. Gotta go!"
I knew that voice by heart. Amy Rose. Why can't she ever leave me alone! I didn't want to exhaust myself so, I let up on the race. If I tried though, she wouldn't have stood a chance. After all, I'm only the fastest thing alive!
"What is it Amy?"
"Hey! Sonic! Guess what?"
"I just met this really cool guy!"
"Who?!" I stood up defensively as I said this. Amy can't be trusted around anyone, she's too trusting. I'd have to make sure they were okay first before letting anyone in.
"His name's Shadow! He's got smooth black and red skin and red eyes and-Sonic? Sonic? SONIC!"
I was already gone before she'd finished. Actually, long before she finished. I knew
that'd get her mad but, she'd get over it. I know that she can't stay mad at me. I don't think anyone could stay mad at me besides Eggman.
I sped around town asking for a Shadow until I found him. He was an impressive looking he

"Oh, he's sooo dreamy..."
The speech lingered, echoing in my ears... She's really into me, isn't she? Focus, man, Shadow. Let's see... I lost him along the tracks. Where could he have been headed? I think I'll go talk to Knuckles, see if he knows anything.
I walked in to find Knuckles asleep. I decided to try calling him.
"Hey! Knuckles? Yo, Knuckles, wake up!"
After a few more failed attempts, I turned on the light, and heightened the intensity.
"Calm down, Knuckles, It's me. And I assure you, I have no interest in your grapes."
"Oh, it's only you Sonic Do me a favor, and turn that light down?"
I dimmed the light and Knuckles sat up.
"So, what's up Sonic?"
"By any chance, do you know a Shadow?"
"Shadow The Hedgehog, black with red stripes?"
"I know him"
"Huh," we both questioned, looking for the voice.
"Over here boys!"

My Best FriendYou're strong and although everything you know seems to go wrong. I will always be there by your side and from me; you will never have to hide. Through your eyes you see a world of everything I despise. As I've watched you tear up and breakdown in disguise, the disguise of perfection, I want to show you your reflection. For too long I've watched cry yourself to sleep at night, I think it's time to finally fuss and fight. I may not be the strongest to ever try but I'll never waver from your side and I wish I could confide that for every last tear you shed, in speeds another dome of lead, leaving with the red of those who have brought you dread but, that would be lie and I in place of that I'd rather die. I hate seeing you in the blues and your sadness is a sight I rue because, you're the best friend I could ever ask for and for a friend I've never asked.

Once it's broken
It will NEVER be perfect
It will never be as beautiful as it once was...
And if you try to fix it
You'll just sit there in a pool of blood, tears, and fears
Trying to repair a broken dream
Until that moment when you bleed out
Lying in the ashes of a love long lost and gone
A life wasted on nothingness

I closed my eyes ready to die. I knew no one could stop him now. Especially not Amy, or Rouge, in the little time I had left. This was it. The scene sounded hectic. Everyone was shouting all at once, as was I. The opposing hedgehog seemed not to have attacked. I opened my eyes slowly, cautiously, to find Knuckles with a hand held out to me.
"Need a hand?"
I let Knuckles help me up but, I only had one thing on my mind as I did so. I turned to Amy. She was crying. I ran over to her and kneeled in front of the pink hedgehog. I hugged her but, she shoved me away.
"Just leave me alone Shadow."
Amy looked up, still unaware who she was speaking with. When she realized who I was, she gave me the tightest hug she'd ever given me. Normally, it'd be painful but, I was so happy I didn't feel it. Her mood quickly changed though. Amy once again pushed me a

What a time well spent.
The meaning of life is simply death,
Not survival, self-realization, or sex.
We need to understand that life is temporary,
If we don't, then we are nothing but caged canaries.

It's such an amazing place
A beautiful place

There's still racism
There's still dictatorship

There's still hate
There's still murder

We're being controlled
Formed like a piece of clay and puppeteer-ed to believe it

When someone stands up
They're a low-life rebel
When they're the light

Broke the shackles of time
The bounds of freedom
Why can't you see?
Come with me
I can set you free
We can all stand up
And fight our masters
Step out of your little fucking bubble of ignorance

But a friend
And just a friend

Everything else disappears
No one's there but you and me
Then someone comes back and shakes me back into reality
Yeah... The real world. Like I wanted to come back
Where we're friends
And only friends
And I'd rather not go into my fantasy
Live in reality
Distant from you
Then live with you for a minute

In the Mirror
An Inspector Gadget Oneshot
Inspired by the picture 'Gadget Struggle' by torokun
The night rain poured down heavily on the roof as young Penny Gadget sat down at the kitchen table, finishing off the last of the dinner on her plate. Her blonde pigtails bounced as she placed her fork on her now empty plate and sighed. "That was a really good dinner. Wasn't it Brain?" She asked her four-legged companion. Brain gave a satisfied bark as he slipped out of his chair and into the living room where he climbed onto the couch to rest. "Oh sure Brain. Leave me with the dishes." She laughed as she took the two empty dishes to the sink. The rain smacked against the window above the sink with great force as she climbed up onto a stool so she could reach the faucet. "That's some storm out there." She thought to herself as she looked out the window. Penny reached for the faucet and then quickly pulled away. "That's right! I almost forgot. Uncle Gadget is taking a shower. I do

Sonic awoke, confused at where he was. There was something humming; sounding like the low growl of an engine. Sonic sat up a bit but found that it made him dizzy to do so, making him lay a back down. After a few minutes, he tried to sit up again (much slower this time) and his efforts were awarded with the fact that he didn't become dizzy. His head turned side to side, letting him take in his surroundings. Where am I, Sonic thought, still looking around.
"You're on my ship of course." Eggman stepped out of the shadows. In his hand he held what looked like a controller for a remote control car and in his other hand there was a small microchip that gave out an immense amount of negative energy for its size. "Don't worry; I'm not here to kill you." Eggman said, noticing Sonic's questioning and slightly worried look. "I'm actually here to replace that chip in your arm."
"Chip; you mean like a microchip?" Sonic inquired, loo

A Tribute to Al Bundy
There once was a man
Who sold only shoes
But his life would be filled
With a permanent case of the blues
His name was Al Bundy
A great athlete in high school
Not the smartest guy around
But certainly no fool
He had many achievements
4 touchdowns in 1 game
He had it all coming towards him
Women, fortune and fame
But little did he know
He only had so much luck
Something would come around the corner
Then Al would be fuc-
Peg Wanker was her name
A fruit from the south
Gigantic red hair
And a rather noisy mouth
Regardless of all that
She caught Als eye
And soon Als good life
Was just about to die
The high school sweethearts
Decided to get married
And it was then decided
Als life had been buried
Suddenly it all happened
Against Als will
But Pegs father was there
Hammered and ready to kill
Bad things would happen
If Al didnt marry the daughter
Among those terrible things
They all involved slaughter
And so it was finished

How was I going to tell my friend and Amy I was leaving.
They would be devastated.
As this thought came into my mind I opened my eyes and looked at the ground below growing closer and closer as I picked up speed.
I thought of what would happen if I died.
If i didn't land safely on the ground...If I hit the ground full force.
The innocent people of the city,my friends and Amy would never be threatened again.
And that's what being a hero was all about wasn't it?
Sacrificing yourself to save the lives of the innocent.
But then again,I thought,no one would be around to make sure Eggman kept his promise of not harming Amy.
...So I couldn't plummet myself into the ground.
But...if I could make it seem like I was dead...then my friends would be safe...and I will still be able to keep an eye on Eggman in case he double crossed me!
Just before smashing into the ground I landed on my feet.

I'll make a promise, here today
To love you, in every way
I'll always listen, to what you say
No matter what, it'll be okay
This poem is to say, and tell everyone I know
That in every way, I've started to grow
I'm seeing who I am, seeing where I want to go
I'm listening to my heart, moving with the flow
I realized somewhere, not too far along the line
That boy or girl or anything else, for me will be fine
If I truly love you, I'll do anything to make you mine
And I'll be hoping, that you won't decline
Truth be told, I'm gender blind
No matter what, I will be kind
If you stay with me, soon you'll find
What it's like, to be gender blind.
