I Will Get Up After Being Knocked DownMy lips screaming out in cries
As you ask me the most hurtful thing anyone could ask
I feel so alone but, this makes me feel even more-so alone
Tears coming out my eyes
Wishing that this was some nightmare
I'm ten years old!
You don't care
You're just giggling
Why does everyone tease me?
Make fun of me?
Did I choose to be the way I am?
I just want someone to accept me
Not to just make fun of me
Giving up and crying is all I do
I can't fight when it hurts
When I know I don't have the ability to do anything
It's school photo day
It's all supposed to okay
I'm supposed to be smiling
I'm supposed to be happy
I'm not meant to be sad
I'm not meant to be crying
You both are
I know who you are
I can't forget your face
As you laugh like it's a joke
But, I don't see the sense of humour in it
All I see is pain!
A heart so broken from words
From everyone leaving me to find myself
When I can't find myself by myself
Standing in this line
Repulsive By DesignLet me tell you this my friendRepulsive By Design2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
And I will tell you no more
If my passion is your crime
Then your love should be my law
I’m the exception to the rule
And the end of this blood line
I should hang my head in shame
I am repulsive by design
Allow me to elucidate
And I will tell you no lie
I am charged with being charmless
And I have no alibi
Feloniously you broke my heart
One chamber at a time
Though I’d expect nothing less
I am repulsive by design
Beware of the broken hearted
Indeed consider with caution
Repulsion cleansed my sorry soul
Such a spiritual abortion
But when a full term of sorrow
And low self esteem combine
I still remain unloveable
I am repulsive by design
:: More Than You'll Ever Know ::Does it make you proud:: More Than You'll Ever Know ::2 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
When you're the cause of someone's tears?
Does it bring you joy
Every time you insult the innocent?
Do you know what you do
When you speak with your vicious tongue?
Do you realize what happens
Every time you laugh at another's sorrow?
You see a woman with male friends
And you accuse her of craving sexual attention.
You notice a boy wearing glasses
And you tease him with the name "four-eyes."
There's a group of peace lovers;
You proclaim they're annoying hipsters.
The teenage boys who love each other;
You tear them asunder by calling them abominations.
Do you find pleasure
In being the source of a poor soul's agony?
Do you even think
Of what the consequences could be?
Does it satisfy you
To make someone feel inferior to you?
Does it quench your thirst
Whenever you rule over the oppressed?
If a young man loves writing poetry,
Immediately you dismiss him as a lonely loser.
Now and ThenNow:Now and Then2 years ago in Emotional More Like This
I woke up curled in a pile of pillows on my twin sized
bed by the sounds of a laptop keyboard. I groggily stare in
the direction of the sound though everything I can see is a
blur. Slowly I reach for my glasses and almost immediately
I'm shocked awake from my almost 2 in a half hours of sleep.
As I grab my mountain dew while talking to Megan I think
back to when I didn't have as many friends as I do now
but that was the least of my problems.
Then:-6th grade field trip after the baseball game
I lay on my bed tears threatening to fall any second
now pretending to be asleep. Today was by far one of the
worst days of my life. It wasn't my fault that I was
starving and only had a box of popcorn to eat! As I
felt my ribs almost transparent through my skin I
finally sercame to my tears. Nope I'm not a "fat pig"
as she called me in fact I was the exact opposite and all
because of people like her, but she would never know.
Now: I can't exactly remember why that memory came to me at that

You tell me I'm nothing.
Your words sting like bee poison.
Nothing makes me happy.
I am the cutter.
I slit my wrists wide open.
That's how I ease the pain.
I want to curl up and die.
Death is better than this.
I am the dead one.
A victim of a bully.
An innocent man.
The kid you told to kill themself.
The one who took your advice.

Glass that was from windows and a shattered heart, one that could never be repaired, nor ever torn apart.
The crow glances down but doesn't care, for his soul and heart rest within the air.

BullyingBullying starts as something smallBullying10 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
A hurtful name and that is all
It doesn't stay this way for long
I just gets worse to the point it's wrong
It starts just as a few, but like an infestation of bugs
Soon they're are billions of these horrible thugs
Each of their words is like a wasp stinging his brain
They continue, they won't stop, it's going to drive him insane
They've broken his mind, but that's not enough
Now they will show him that they're very tough
The victim is soon all bruised and sore
The pain is like nothing felt before
Then he builds up with hatred and rage
He takes the situation to the very next stage
He takes out a gun and starts shooting like crazy
Who's a bully? Who's not? It's all so hazy
In the end everyone is all just the same
All dead because of one stupid name

As the moon arises from the ocean sea, my soul disappears, won't you come with me?
But it seems you're afraid, the dead world isn't bad, there are millions of skeletons and souls at hand.
They'd love to meet you, to rip off your flesh, and to lead you to our king who would devour your soul, fresh.
You'd become one of us after that painful journey, but dearest you love me, so won't you join me?

The Lonely HouseThe Lonely HouseThe Lonely House2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Across the plains, lies a lonely house.
None ever choose to visit it, not a human nor a mouse.
It lies in a grassy field, tattered and torn, the roof tilted over, it's so very forlorn.
This house sees the rains, the trees and the stones, but the only inhabitant is now a bag of bones.
A once loving owner is deep underground, a plague of silence is the only sound.
And soon to think this house shall fall, no, it shall not, for it still remains tall.
Taller and prouder than the houses far away, it shall always live to see another day.

So play each

And yes that is a fact
Try being me, and you'll see how people react
Yes I am different, and no I am not "cool"
I'm the freak, the outcast at school
So what if my hair is black and always in my face
Who cares if I walk through the halls like its a race
I know I'm quiet, and I don't like to talk
But that gives you no reason to make me the laughing stock
Yes I love skinny jeans, and converse are the best
Aside from that what makes me so different from all the rest
You all judge by appearance, always overlooking what's inside
Making crude jokes just to boost your own pride
Please just stop and look
See that small bit of MY happiness that you took
With every rude word, and glare on your face
Your only trying to cover up your own mistakes that you can not erase

When I say it I want to look in her eye
Unwasting of her precious time
Upon my shoulders is something heavy

This thing it mocks
It even sometimes makes me uncertain

Flurry of Dancing Flames ....Flurry of Dancing Flames ....6 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Flurry of Dancing Flames,
Youre all I could name
As I see my home town ablaze
Fire billowed from the walls
As prisoners escaped from their razing gaols,
Standing in the barren square
Everywhere I look, the town is stripped bare
Falling victim to the fires grief-stricken flare
I looked up into the smoky sky
To see a dark figure standing in the nigh,
A tall, lean soul stands alone
As his cloak flaps wildly in the wind
As he looked down upon me
We both knew in our hearts
That what he would do would tear our worlds apart
But he had no choice
This was the only way he would hear that familiar voice.
I gasped as he performed a valiant leap of faith
Through the fire I saw his form fall like a wraith
Until he stopped in mid action
I saw he survived and had the satisfaction,
Of laying my eyes on this mystery one more time
Talons of fire formed around him in a tenacious spire
He gazed happily at the flames of which he would never tire
A pair of devastating weapons appeared in his hand
