and that there is never a wrong time to love someone,
but sometimes a wrong way. I will teach my daughter
to travel without makeup; that sometimes forever means
morning and sometimes the ends of the earth means
Africa or one city over. that it's okay to be afraid of
I will tell my daughter that life is teetering across
the bridge, that the panic building in her chest is okay;
that good love is waiting on the other side; that better
love is holding her hand; and that the best love is her own

CourageEverybody will have one or multiple fears,Courage3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Some of them can bring us to tears.
Our fears will never leave us,
A fear is something we will always possess.
When we face that which we fear,
Even if it's only once a year.
We might be scared to death,
Slowly trying to get control over our breath.
Our heart is beating at a much faster pace,
We might even try to maintain a straight face.
Someone who is courageous,
Even if what that person does might be outrageous.
Is somebody who still fears like you and me,
But who still dares to be and think free.
True courage is not hiding from your fear,
But to face your fear head on, even if you're scared.

Gandalf war’s, der Graue Weise.
„Frodo, Lust auf einen kurzen Flug,
Auf Adlers Schwinge, schnell genug?“
„Warum soll ich heut Nacht denn fliegen,
Wo auch im Bett ich könnte liegen?“
„Um Saurons Ring schnell zu vernichten,
So spar’n wir uns gar viel Geschichten.“
So flogen sie zum Schicksalsberg,
Sahen weder Ork noch Zwerg,
Ließen dann den Ring reinplumpsen
Hörten laut des Berges Rumsen,
Danach, sie flogen wieder heim,
Welt retten kann so einfach sein.

MANN VS. FEMANN: A Team Fortress 2 Fic - Chapter 1The forts in 2Fort had been lifeless all afternoon. It was so silent you could hear the dust scatter itself over the ground and the occasional dove flap above your head. The REDs took it as a blessing from above and spent most of the day doing nothing. The intense card game between Soldier and Demo took place once again, Engineer was busy sitting out on the rooftops with his sentries and his dispensers - for good measure - and Pyro was even found cooking with Heavy munching through most of his food - raw and cooked.MANN VS.

Two REDs had other ideas for the day though.
A certain RED Spy and a particular RED Scout decided to go on their own secret field trip across to the BLU's base. It was too quiet these days and they were determined to find out why.
"I'm tellin' ya! Them BLUs are up to somethin' and I'm not liking it." RED Scout spat in disgust as he strolled through the tunnel underneath BLUs' base with a disgusted RED Spy wading his way through the putrid water behind him.

I walked into the kitchen to see animals everywhere. I asked one of them to bring me some strawberries. He came back with like 30 in a large bowl. I went and sat on the couch. Marshall Lee sat next to me. I sucked the red out of the strawberries and he ate them colorless.
The strawberries were half way done when we set the bowl on the floor and relaxed. I rested my head on his chest and smiled. Marshall Lee placed his arm on my shoulder. I slowly started to fall asleep. I tried my best to stay awake, but I was just so tired. I slowly started going . And going .. and gone.
When I woke up I saw that Marshall Lee was awake and was watching a movie on a small video game person. I opened my eyes and smiled.
"You're up," he said smiling.
"Yeah, I wish I wasn't," I yawned. I rubbed my eyes and sat up, "What time is it?"
"About 8 p.m.," said Marshall Lee. I got up and went into the bathroom. I grabbed a brush and started brushing my hair. I started singing my "Daddy" song while

Slender man, oh slender man?
Where art thou my Slender man?
Keeper of night, taker of day.
The Slender man awaits.
His tendrils slip,
His fingers drip,
He takes the life of whom he likes,
And disappears before the light.
Slender man, oh Slender man?
Where art thou my Slender man?
Your fear will only feed him,
As he comes for you children,
Stalking, testing, waiting.
The Slender man will come for you,
Just wait and see.
He'll slip into your room tonight.

Where art thou my Slender man?
Oh there he is,
Hiding in the darkness,
Go look and see.
Fall asleep, he won't hurt you.

Sleep tight tonight,
Have dreams so bright,
For the Slender man comes,
To end your life.

and, all wrapped in rising sun, we're coccooning,
if we're throwing all the good things into a bucket of riverness
(and lawn flowers),
will we want to wake up?
I know I'll want to pour
my slice of eternity into a bottle of coconut essence,
make my foreverafter sweet and tropical,
and if your hands are balsam I can
carve my song in stone,
and I will never die.
But don't you ask yourself
why paper boats always sink, in the end?
I don't think I care.
I think they just sail off to a land without horizon
deep in the underwater of the bathtub.
You'll know when, and
you'll hear me sing a sea shanty, maybe.
I want to take my ship until the end of the river.
I want to see the spring pouring down blossom offerings
into the ritual water, I want
our coast of muck and destruction to be aflame with
I'm a shellfish and my fingernails are painted green,
I'm silent-all-these-years and fallen,
I'm wondering where my watercolor

The birds chirping,
The wave's crashing,
This is a peaceful place.
The breezes hits my skin,
And warms me from the outside in.
The smell of the ocean,
The mist from the sea,
The waves crash below.
The tree that shade's me is tall and strong.
I feel the life within.
A small squirrel leaps from its branches
Landing almost at my side.
We see each other but it does not run,
It is peaceful here.
We sit and watch the sea together.
As the sun beats down,
Through the mighty oaks leave's.
We sit and watch the seas
And as darkness comes,
The sea is calm, until next days light.

And the ache of soul carried the torch of dreams into the sky
Upon scent of mortal thirst destiny whispered in myriad
rapture of folding tides..
Lo the mythic shore, where I — a phantasm of love bleeds
into the ether of velvet sky & ocean hymn...
Lost in the wine of omni-dreaming, for our passion tis but
the humble audience of eternity
In jeweled horizons the Goddess feasts; her gaze I cannot flee
I have crossed oceans of time & drank the song of worlds
My spirit forever slain in the beauty of her immortal sea

Da ham' die Viecher nichts zu lachen.
Denn gegen einen echten Helden
Hat kaum ein Drache was zu melden.
Nur Tutziputz, der war voll Tücke,
Held um Held riss er in Stücke.
Folglich gab's ein Mordsgetöse,
Dabei war Tutzi gar nicht böse.
Doch alle Helden, dumm wie Brot,
Jagten nur ihn... und war'n bald tot.
Dann war'n die Helden ausradiert,
Die Menschheit somit angeschmiert.
Nun ungestört könn' böse Drachen
Aus Menschen kleine Häppchen machen.
So lerne Du aus diesen Strophen,
Mut ohne Hirn schafft Katastrophen.

Fade in a fascinating light
Bringing about such happiness
In such a cold bitter night
A taste of salty water
Upon my brazen tongue
Now bring about and come out
The ways that were surely young
For waves are but the course of which
Such livelihoods can take
With their dream cases and tow-alongs

I just wish to return to my place of slumber,
where what is dreamt came make me regret.
The cold sweat is the moment I awaken...
Knowing nothing, and remembering little.
Hunger, my belly for fulfillment so sweet...
The theory behind so many burdens,
the many weights on these weary shoulders,
That I have ever called my own.
And now my knees are my feet,
covered with the hoof prints of a dead horse.
Tell me God, the Creator in a Kingdom his own...
Tell me of my purpose in the method you wish...
Tell me once more if not a million times...
As for this all, the new and unwanted-
I have no push left in me...For this---
I feel nothing...

only ghosts that were never

maybe we used to be the same,
but now your cracked reflection
only adds to my years of bad luck
you never counted the lines in my smile,
or the notes between my freckles,

I'm something to get by on,
but I'm simply not enough.
my watered-down voice

and you feed me sugar pills
