Life is ..Life is …
Life is the space between your ears,
Life is the song that no one hears,
Life is the place that only you know,
Life is the grass growing through snow,
Life is the touch of a lover's hand,
Life is a castle melting in sand,
Life is the laugh that's stuck in your throat
Life is a poem that god wrote
Life is the shiver on a warm night,
Life is like death, only not quite.

A movie played inside my mind.
Ive traveled the seas in half the time
Without ever leaving home.
Ive spread my wings but didnt fly
Ive touched heaven, but I didnt die
Had the chance to ask God why
Without ever receiving an answer.
Ive count the stars and made to ten
Lost track and had to start again.
People laughed, but thats how we make friends
Without ever knowing their name.
Ive loved completely and watched them leave
I tell the storysome dont believe
Let them go or did you flee?
Without seeing what tomorrow brings.
Ive cried like I would never smile
Walked in darkness for half a mile
Saw the sun in the distance for a small while
Without ever feeling its rays.
Ive walked the beachestasted the breeze
There was a time that Ive felt free.
Touched my soul and let life be
Without any regrets to hold.
Ive laughed until I could not breathe

I look at the stars and feel very small;
just a tiny consciousness.
But if I were as tall as a planet,
I would still be short in comparison to the universe.
I see a person twice my size
and I feel weak and fragile.
But if I were strong and powerful,
I would still not be invincible.
I see a painting by the hand of a genius,
and I feel inexperienced and ignorant.
But if I were the greatest artist alive,
it would not make me love what I do any more or less.
I see blood, running from the wound of another,
and I feel a chilling fear from deep within.
But if I walked this earth with bravery,
it would not make things less dangerous.
I see a baby, innocent and naive,
and I feel cynical and jaded.
But if I saw through untainted eyes all my life,
it would not make the world a better place.
I see a raindrop, tear of the sky,
and I feel ugly and unsightly.
But if I were as beautiful as rain,
it would not make me crystal clear inside.

so they force me to be the person they want to see.
they don't see that their effect was reversed
or that my breaking point has been traversed.
I feel as though my mind is slowly being erraticated
and my once strong body painfully mutilated.
because of my affiliations,
i have suffered through many tribulations.
I want to just lay down and die
and let my soul drift towards the sky.
but i know it's not my time quite yet,
for i still have goals that need to be met.
So until i finish my final task,
a little peace is all i ask.
i do not wish to cause any strife,
i just want you to get out of MY LIFE!!!
The Truth to LifeDo we have a purpose, is a question one will often askThe Truth to Life10 years ago in Open More Like This
Is there a higher power out there, some greater task
The truth will hurt many, not only a few
People have a hard time dealing with that which is true
There is nothing greater that watches your back
Deal with it, stop crying and build your own stack
You are responsible for the life that you lead
It is not someone else's fault when you don't get what you need
If one wants the stars, they must be grabbed by one's own hand
Nothing in life is freely given there is no promised land
So the question remains, why are we here
For those without faith, the answer is painfully clear
We live only for today and if we are lucky the morrow
To us there is no afterlife, but that brings us no sorrow
Self improvement is our main goal and it starts in the here and now
We refuse to be filled with illusions of grandeur and get fat off them like a cow
The best of us seek improvement in every area we can
Without the proper balance of self there can be no co

What is life?
I don't know.
Life is just…life.
It starts, and it ends.
But what is it like?
It's not like time. Time cannot be stopped. Life can.
Yet, it's like a river. Rivers can be controlled. Life can be controlled.
So is life like a river? Nah.
It's not like a river, and it's not like time…
What is life? What is it like?
Well, I'd say…
Life is whatever you want it to be. Good or bad.
No one else can make you change how your life is except you.
The question now is…
What DO you want it to be?
It's your choice. Make it a good one.

Stain your heart and stain your soul,
Can change your idea of all you know.

Bucle se-mpletesc pe umeri, cer noros, zâmbete goale,
Cruci pe dealul dinspre tine îmi umbresc poteca strâmtă,
Ciori parcă din cer grămadă stau de veghe-n poarta sfântă.
Toate câte le zărești în vechea grădină mută,
Ordinare pietre reci doar ascultă și ascultă...
Încordat în dorul strașnic noaptea vine; și te fură
Gândurile, lacrimile, fericirea ta nocturnă.
Plamadești în palme-ți grele plumb de ieri,plumb de azi.
E un sâmbure amar `conjurat de-un damf de brazi.
Te-ai minți singur cu clipa adunând roua din stele

Cause life is a whore; whos slipping out of her black dress.
She'll fuck you over and spit you out;
so hold on tight and- find something you can care about.
Life's a bitch, and I'm sure you know it;
Everyday there's a million little ways she'll show it.
She'll stick her nose up at starving kids.
And offer up people to the highest bids.
She'll scoff at families in broken homes,
and laugh at the pitfalls in the paths we roam.
Yeah life is a sadist; she loves our pain.
She runs through the warzones,And dances in the crimson rain.
She feeds on anguish; and she'll drink up our tears.
Loves to layer her abuse, into our darkest fears.
If the Earth is the 'mother', and Time plays 'dad';
Then life is the daughter that they both wish they never had.
We treat her like shit, and we throw her away;
then somehow wonder how she got this way.
Life is in pain, her beauty blemished by madness.
Holding to flickering joy while engulfed by sadness.

And all the trouble that you cause
I hate the dot to dot acne just above your nose
And I hate your nearly-a-monobrow too
I hate the way you're so selfish
And how it always has to be about you
But mostly I hate that none of this is true
And the fact that I hate myself

SadRight now I sit and watch as sadness shows from more then one friend. I try to let myself be cheerful, but sadness spreads through me like a disease. Sad is what I feel when you are sad, it's what I feel because you feel the sadness through and through. I feel sad that I cannot help you. I feel as though I'm not a true friend. True friends should be able to fix things like this. To cheer you up even when you're hurting. I don't expect you to show me a smiling mask. I don't expect you to cheer up just for my benefit. I won't ask you to change just for me. I will hope and pray that soon, someday, your days will become brighter, happier. Like you once were. Happiness is what I wish for you. Both of you. Sadness is the disease that hurts, happiness is the only cure now. But where can you find the sun on a cloudy day? Try not to hurt, try not to be sad, but never show me a fake happiness.

When you say what is to come, I know it will be right.
You make my life more enjoyable each and every minute.
My frienship with you: I won't ever, ever forget it.

There in my darkest hour, there to help guide me.
To put up with me is alot, my friend, and I know it to be true
Even thought I don't say it all the time: Thank you.
Thank you for being there to be my friend,
Thank you for helping me try to comprehend.
Thank you for making me feel happy, loved, and needed.
Thank you for when you are near, my loneliness is "DELETED".
Each time we talk, I keep asking myself if this is true:
How could I be so lucky to have a great friend like you?
I can't being to try to begin to thank you for all that you have done,
If there is anyone I trust anything to: You would be the one.
When you are around, all my wounds in my soul begin to mend.

That is my truth.
Do I understand it? No!
I don't even know if I could live up to it.
I love you.
You will ask: How much?
Is it really necessary to tell
Suddenly, you've become everything.
You'll then ask:
What is "true?"
That's fine, I'll tell you
is to feel you,
that I take you inside me
that I lose you and I don't have you,
it's to feel that I forget you and I cry and sigh
it's to know that you are not mine,
and to know you never will be.
It's to miss you and go crazy without seeing you,
without speaking to you,
without kissing you.
It's to touch your skin, your lips, your fingers.
It's wanting to feel myself inside you, deep inside you.
It's talking to myself, alone, about you...
I love you.
What else could I tell you?
I love you, I want you, I need you.
And to finish, you can ask (once again):
But that, you will never know.

De ce iti umpli fata, cu rani si vanatai?
Doar ai eternitatea, ce nimeni n-o poate avea,
Si totusi tu plangi mai mult, decat plang copiii tai.
Stii tu oare fiule, cum e sa ai o viata,
Ce nu se mai sfarseste, ce nu o poti trai?
Ce inseamna sa nu ai riscul, firului de ata?
Sa te priveasca copii tai si sa nu ii poti iubi?
Dar tu tre' sa fii de piatra, ca inima unui erou,
Sa zbori atat de sus, unde nimeni sa n-ajunga.
Iar vocea ta sa fie tunetul, al carui ecou,
Sa ajunga peste ani si cu frica sa ne unga.
Si unde e rostul omule, de a fi un mandru rege,
Cand nu am cu cine, sa imi impart regatul?

Something you just know.

At times the world is cold
Life beats you way down
With nothing left to hold.
But you always know
That no matter what
