Ode to Rise AgainstThe band spoke not to the masses,Ode to Rise Against3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
but to those whose wrists wore slashes.
Their words lacked a semblance of formality,
but were meant for those with abnormality.
The message was for all those whose pain was immense;
it told them it was time to rise, Rise Against.
Rise Against the injustice and pain.
Defend the memory of the slain.
Stand for those who are helpless.
Always try to be selfless.
Work hard for better futures.
Treat the world's wounds with sutures.
Rise Against their pseudo-perfection.
With music, they gave us direction.
Do not let yourself be tame.
Do not give in to their game.
Fight back, but not with violence,
and do not live in silence.
Rise Against the corrupt regime.
They are not as strong as they seem.
Live only by your moral laws.
Stand up, stand out, embrace your flaws.
Arm-in-arm, we make a wall.
Together, we can stand tall.
Rise Against the fanatic;
those whose beliefs are static.
They fear our success, our progress,
and so it is us they oppress.
In time, my suffer
The Americans just got PorkedThe Americans just got Porked3 years ago in Editorial More Like This
I talked about in a previous journal entry how obama's bankster thugs make money off your food stamps. The leftists made excuses as usual.
There is this "tax the rich" campaign going on in America. It is everywhere, Americans are being manipulated into believing taxing the rich will fix all our debt...It wont. If you taxed all 425 billionaires in America at 100%, all that money would be gone within a year, and it would not have fixed a thing. America would then be left without it's billionaires to invest in new endeavors, and dissolving any further stimulation to the already dilapadating economy. Almost all billionaires are probably horrible people, but the politicians allow the rich to destroy our economy. The politicians give the billionaires the keys.
Talk show host Thom Hartmann recently said on his program, he wants billionaires to be taxed at 100%. He also wants an income cap to be set up, so billionaires in America can not exist. Yes, he wants to rid of all Billionaire in A

My heart kept racing, all alone
I kissed your hand, I kissed your nose
I paced for hours, in the hall
I sang beside you, all night long
Shared our stories, had some laughs
Shared our secrets, shed some tears
I saw you blink, I saw your eyes
I saw your body, but felt your soul
Your lips not moving,
I heard a whisper, heard my name
Rushed to your side, your pulse was slowing
Your mother screamed, your father cried
When we arrived, I saw you fighting
The numbers jumping, up then down
I held your hand, I watched your chest,
Rise and fall, with every breath
Could not believe, that you might die
Could not believe, you had to survive
One month ago, our world stopped spinning
Your brother said
Cant find his pulse
Could not believe, could not believe
I kissed your hand, I kissed your nose
I felt the warmth, still fading away
I felt a liquid stain my lip
It was your body
It was your soul
Your life echoed in my own
I see the world, it
FlutterMacIt was the orange light of Celestia's setting sun reflected across her pale yellow body hair that caught his attention on the onset. Big Macintosh had been toiling in the apple orchards all day, his body sore and every muscle in his equine body strained. He never had much to be happy about and there was always too much work to do to survive. And that's when he saw her atop the hill.FlutterMac5 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
Unhitching himself from the wagon, the work pony slowly trotted up the hill. He'd noticed the pegasus pony Fluttershy before, but he had never truely NOTICED her before this moment. His sister's other friends were always so brash or loud, so he never got the chance to ever meet just her. And, seeing her on this hilltop alone, for the first time in his life he did not think about apples.
Fluttershy had had a long day tending the animals of the forest. The shrews had suffered a nasty cold, so she had to quarantine them from the other animals. She hated keeping them in the hutch outside her house, but she didn

She told this story one day while she did beadwork and a few of her grandchildren played nearby. She remembered her own grandmother, the one who raised her as a little girl. She talked about a time many years ago, the last time she saw her grandmother.
"My grandmother lived on a place where she had a barn and grain holders and chickens and horses. She used to let me help her take care of the chickens. The horses roamed out to pasture, coming in sometimes for hay she always had ready for them. She and I lived there together. My older cousin, a young man then, stayed with us from time to time.
"My grandmother had adopted my mother a long time ago, see, and then when my mother died, just thirty-four years old, my grandmother took me to live with her. My sisters and brother went to my other grandmother but my grandmother wanted me with her. I was just a little girl then, not even old en

On this earth to meet your fate
Bribed with cookiessent with love
Join the dark side. Its what you dreamed of.
Come with me and lets explore
All the things you havent seen before.
On your birthday, you can fly
Drift away and touch the sky.
On a cloud, you can eat your pie
Look back on the past with a sigh.
Growing older, but still always young at heart
Journey forward and make a start.
Thirteen years have gone and pass
Teenage times are here to last
At least for a few years, that is
But it will go by in a whiz.
So Happy Birthday I give to you
May all your birthday wishes come true!
For you a cheerful person and good friend
Dont make me have to repeat this poem again!
Now remember not to trip off the stage
Maybe I should put you in a cage.
That way you can never get hurt again
Will this poem ever end?
I keep thinking of new things to add
I hope this doesnt make you mad

I watch you fondly, amazed at what I see,
your full of endless love, and true sincerity
I've never experienced such a beautiful sight
your charming glow bathing me in warm light
I'm overcome with joy, basking in the affectionate rays
hoping that I'm able to show you love in such ways
I hear your sweet voice whispering in my ear
my heart melts, as what you say brings out a tear
'I love you', you say, 'always and forever'
'we're going to spend the rest of our lives together'
My head spins, unable to comprehend
as I hope this moment will never end
I feel your gentle arms, reach around from behind
as you hug me tight, our bodies becoming entwined
in that instant, nothing else matters
as all the pain from before shatters
until I'm left there with you, loved, open and full of emotion
and I hand you my heart, as a sign of my devotion

Tearing me up inside
I can't let it out though
For fear of harming someone I love
I wish to be free from this anger
Can you help me?
Save my soul
From this burning fury
Sometimes it's too much too handle…
And I need to let it out
Help me be able to love
So I might learn to let go
For I fear this rage might consume me
Help before it takes over
One word is all I need from you, one word is all it takes
One word of reassurance
Just to know you'll be there
When I need you
I'll try not to hurt you
With this anger of mine
It's unpredictable, I can't control it
But if you help me, I can try…

A lesson that i've learnt is to not crash and burn,
as my error riddled life begins to take a turn,
i was just about to make one of the dumbest decisions in my life,
and to be quite fair to myself, i'd be putting myself in strife,
i can't afford to lose it over just a little thing,
but you can't blame me cause of the smiles that she brings,
saying her name would just be another wound in my heart,
as everything i do just seems to fall apart,
i hope that it is something that i begin to contemplate,
having second thoughts on her, as she may be fake,
but for the time being, i will take a step back,
to rejuvinate myself and to keep myself intact,
shes still in my mind but i know my chances are gone,
and now i begin to question if she was leading me on.

On the dark side of the moon
As they hang out stars like decorating a tree
Wrapping the sun up in tinfoil
Spreading a new blanket of snow up on the ground
Sprinkling sand across beds of seaweed
Waiting for the moon to go down
Writing words up on the wind
Folding paper planes just right
Tucking the volcano into for the night
Making waves by jumping into the sea
Counting souls 1, 2, 3
Singing songs of forgotten lore
Telling the world to sleep as we close the door
Tapping out Morse codes with our toes
Screaming out loud while blowing your nose
Geese flying backwards into space
Grass hoppers hopping along with the human race
Laying down the law enforcing the weather
Drawing a circle into a square
Riding a wild westerly wind
Falling upwards wearing a grin
Travel with me form the past
Holding out for hope will it last?
Hopscotch and jacks while pouring out the dew
Come along follow the sun as she races around the world
Follow me, follow me and deed my words

That at one time all have heard,
From books and stories we've been told,
And cherish word for word.
Our current love is never real,
Just a line of crushes fading.
We can't tell ones that make us feel,
Infatuation's hand invading.
You tell yourself, "my time will come,
Old time love will come my way."
Some would say that you are dumb,
But they can't lead your heart astray.
True love belongs to each in turn.
It isn't something you can learn.

To make me feel good.
I wasn't supposed to fall in love with you.
I wasn't supposed to feel,
like I can't breathe when I'm not near you.
I wasn't supposed to feel the ache in my stomach.
That ache that makes you sick,
because you think of someone.
I knew what I was doing,
And I cry.
I cry knowing what I did.
How could I,

Over and over again.
How could I
Play this game with you.

Introduction: How to Spot a Drow Illusionist
I can identify a habitual roleplayer from fifty paces. Those who've been spooked by my asking whether they're a roleplayer within ten seconds of reading their fiction will know what I'm talking about.
"But how did you know?" they gasp. When I'm done chuckling, I explain that I know they are a roleplayer, because they write like a roleplayer.
There's usually a pause, then, while the writer decides to what degree they're going to feel offended by this statement, and/or wonders whether I've been stalking them, before they pose the next question: "What, exactly, do you mean by that?"
What I mean is this: roleplayers almost invariably share the same basic writing habits, and some of these habits stand out as flaws in their non-RP material.
Many people develop their interest in writing

Cover your face with your hair so they won't see your face get red.
As the tears drip down, don't let them hit the desk.
And the sniffle thats coming should be quick and muffled.

that was so pure and true.
For love will always alter,
when one finds a new.
It is likely to bend,
when one be an hour away,
and it is not forever fixed,
in one place to stay.
It is priceless,
only because it cannot be bought,
it only exists,
because it is forever sought.
If what I say is wrong, and can be proven true,
then everyone I have loved, even you.

Some people say that maybe I'm too nice
A guy with a lot of sugar and not enough spice
But this was how I was born and raised
I do all this without one ounce of praise
Girls say they want a guy whos really kind
But in reality they go for the one with the cute behind
What's a nice guy to do to get a little play
The girls I like only want me as a friend, what can I say
Why do the jerks always get the girls
Guess I'm just a rock in a sea of pearls
It's kind of strange how girls never know what they want
All they want to do with guys is flirt and flaunt
Where are the girls out there that are just like me
Are they somewhere out there, maybe lost at sea
I'm searching, maybe I'm looking too hard
What is it, do I need some kind of special card
I guess I'll wait, I got nothing better to do
In this search for love I wish the best for you
