The Voice of AggressionWhy do you care for them
when no one cares for you?
You pretend to be the good son,
but we both know that isn't true.
Or do you really believe
in this pathetic compassion?
Listen to my advice
I will show your true passion!
For I gaze into your heart
and see only hatred burning bright.
I can see your twisted dark soul
that finds others pain such a delight.
Still believe you are noble,
you little creature of hate?
I am your true nature,
I am your true fate.
You wonder what I am?
I am what you are afraid to be!
I am part of the human that is you
the part that you refuse to see.
Why do you fight your nature
even if it is that

lit only by the evening sun.
I walk among the tombstones
wondering when I will be gone.
I read one of them,
for me nothing but a name.
But behind it lies a story
of both happiness and pain.
Hundreds upon hundreds
lies here forever sleeping.
But everyone have once lived,
been both laughing and weeping.
I wonder if I will be mourned
when my body is completely rotten.
Will I be remembered and missed
or will I be completely forgotten?
But even those who might mourn
in time they will also pass away.
Everything will someday cease,
in the end nothing escapes decay.
Yet I am content, death I no longer fear
A war insideI try to be my best,A war inside1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
And to do what is right,
It is why my will and I,
Are having this fight.
The battle began,
The day when I swore,
That I would be better;
That I would become more.
I rejected myself,
The me I would not permit,
But now later I know,
There is no escaping it.
For the part that I denied,
Wanted to be free.
It wished to be heard,
No longer strangled by me.
The rift began to grow,
And now we are two,
Both believe to know,
What is the right thing to do.
It is a struggle,
Of me versus I,
A battle of ideas,
A war inside.
But although they fight,
There is no hate,
For they are both me,
They share the same
Leave your hate behindThere is always a cause,Leave your hate behind1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
behind any evil heart.
Understand the source,
see what tore them apart.
For you may be suffering,
but so do they as well.
Do they enjoy hurting?
No, they are living in hell!
By wounding another,
you bring yourself pain.
It is a bitter irony,
suffering is all you gain.
Your anger may want revenge,
and your hate wants their pain,
but it will only make it worse,
It will make the cycle start again.
An eye for an eye,
and the world goes blind.
So please stop it now,
leave your hate behind.
Exposed liesHow clever I am,Exposed lies1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
so very cunning I can be!
Yet endlessly stupid,
I thought they would not see.
The mask I created,
has been torn away.
All my lies exposed,
nothing more I can say.
Too late to say sorry,
it is too late to explain,
for I have deceived them,
no more trust remains.
"It is the easiest way",
"They will never know".
truly I am a fool,
what was I afraid to show?
A common treeA pine in the forest,A common tree1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
so mighty, so strong!
Yet unnoticed by others,
as they pass along.
For since there are many,
nobody ever sees,
the size and grandeur,
of these common trees.
A long time it has lived,
A hundred years it has grown.
Imagine if it could talk,
What stories it must have known.
This magnificent plant,
so very old and tall,
in a way it makes me sad,
that it will have to fall.
And for something as puny,
something so very small,
as this little tiny human,
not even six foot tall.

I have let my life slip away.
Imagine what I could have been
If I hadn't wasted day after day.
It is the depth of despair
to know what one could have been.
To always look back in shame
and know that it is too late for me.
But maybe it's not yet over,
blood still flows in my veins.
Much time have been lost
But a little still remains.
Although it is forever gone
everything that I could have been,
I can still choose to fight
and carve a better life for me.
With so much time lost
I can no longer live in regret.
Now is my time to rise
with blood, tears and sweat!

I am completely normal.
Everyone gets angry from time to time.
Have you never hated someone,
Wanted to make them pay for their crimes?
Yes…I am normal.
Everyone want to kill someone.
But they are all such cowards,
Seems like I am the only brave one.
Really, I am normal!
I did what you all wanted to do!
You are all just like me,
So why do you hate me so…
No! I am normal!
Please, I have done nothing wrong!
I know that you hate me…
Aren't you going to kill me now?

here I can rest unseen.
Here I am free to dream
of how things might have been.
I remember that long ago
I was always so very kind.
Those were the good times,
when I was just a innocent child.
But that was a long time ago
and I have learned, I have grown.
I have become a man
although it has cost me my soul.
I was taught to be tough
to never, ever feel.
Taught that I must be cold,
and be hard like steel.
But although I have grown
inside I am still the same little child.
The child who want to laugh and be happy,
not pretending to be tough all the time.
I dream of living as myself
but I know that it can never be.

I would do anything
just to feel your kiss.
Yes, I believe I love you,
and I know you love me.
If we would be together
how happy we would be!
This is my heart's desire,
to love you until the end.
I would be your shield,
your lover and friend.
Sadly I know
this cannot be
For in your dreams
there is no room for me.
So farewell my love
this is where we part.
I rather live in loneliness
then having to break your heart.

She wished to no longer be alone,
but she never wanted this.
They came to her as she despaired
promising her the way to bliss.
Voices only she can hear
They speak of her darkest dreams
goading her to embrace her anger.
They can see who she really is
and how close she is to surrender
Voices that she so wisely fear
She refuses to become a monster,
yet she knows that she cannot win.
One day she will eventually surrender
for her heart is already black with sin.
Voices that only laughs and sneer
There is only one thing she can do
before she will cause others pain.
With the voices laughing in her ears,

A Friend I Call HomeThere is a place I'm longing for tonight,A Friend I Call Home1 month ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
A place I love so far, far away.
There lives in my heart a treasure buried deep inside,
And I'll keep wondering until I find it again someday.
Somewhere the flowers are in bloom,
A candle burning in a room.
There is comfort in the darkest night,
Even if there is no star in sight.
Every time I close my eyes it's all I see,
I am haunted by a timeless memory.
And no matter what I do or where I roam,
I will still be dreaming my way home.
Time froze but I kept moving on,
All I have loved, all I have known.
I turned around and in a moment it was gone,
Still I believe I'm never far from home.

as you lay upon my heart tonight,
memories of your pain strike tears in my eyes
Please see that its not only for your suffering that my heart cries
It is for the passion my heart now holds for you
The love that feels it might break free
My darling it is for what you already mean to me
My tears are for dreams of our future
that you and I now hold dear
the way my heart pounds when you are near
My dear love,
the joy you bring me is worth the tears that follow
For it lets me know that I am finally alive
My heart no longer so hollow
So next time a tear escapes from my eye,
do not try to push it away,
for it is my gift to you

They conquer my mind
Controlling all of my thoughts, no longer defined
My heart, it breaks, from the pressure of this world
I struggle to break free, yet still fall to my fate
My Lord my God, the arbiter of my life
Save me from myself, from this continuous strife
Blessings around me, I cannot help but love
Gifts I have,from non other than heaven above
Rest,Rest,Rest,is what I beg of my mind
Just leave me alone, all I can do is try
Freedom is coming, its just around the bend
Redemption is unfolding, unto those who have sinned
Peace, I feel it,breaking down the door
Thank God, I dont have to feel this pain anymore.

The first base beat of the core rings out through the never; I have heart, muscle of power.
The second tense rush of thickly dark liquid forces out into space; I have the river of life in channels and flow.
Thirdly races pulse of existence out into the becoming; I have arteries into capillaries into webs of construction.
Relieved of eternity without breath, the air fills me; pouring rich red into the dark ooze that course still.
Racing to the new membranes and routes that need it; the crimson red flows without end to relieve the need.
Muscles build about bones anew; forming my frame with t

That I was free from inspection
I said the prayer; I went to church the whole nine yards
I had my get out of jail free card
I was set
No need to fret
All my verse I did memorize
So it was me the kids idolized
My sister came into the world
My universe got swirled
I didn’t want her there
She could have died for all I cared
My parents became distant
I was virtually nonexistent
No one knew what was going on
I was the leader I had to be strong
No one knew the pain I was hiding
No one knew I was sliding
Crying myself to sleep
This pain I wish would delete
So tired of living
No one would be missing
If I were gone

Nothing is there to build you back

Unfix-able, unrecognizable, broken

How can it wield so much power, that some people can't even say it?
One single word
Can make you think about your future
While regretting your past
It can take a day that started with promise and hope
And turn it dark
Eliminating the light and invading everything with fear
It's all I can think about now
A lot of people want me to look to blame
I just want someone to explain
What's going on?
And what do we do?
Is there a reason for the fear I'm now going through?
Sit and wait...
For an explanation
For a plan
Once they've said the word...
Don't they know how hard sit and wait becomes

ReflectionsEach night I look into the mirror,Reflections4 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
And down my spine runs a shiver,
The scars, cuts and lacerations,
Yet I am my own true creation.
Many will be repulsed by the image they see,
Not realising, somebody different I could be,
For within is not a product of that same skin,
And that an angel just might reside within.
My reflection is the true person,
Including lacerations and scars,
Repulsion just makes it worsen,
Try looking for the angel and its star.
