TeenagersThe adults pretended to know what teenagers doTeenagers8 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
And why we do what we do
Why so many of us take a knife to our arm
As though they know what we go through
Oh sure, they have a convincing argument
We were teenagers once upon a time
We know how hard life is, and how much you want to give up
How you're pressured by your peers into crime
Yes but no matter how many times we try to tell them
That was then, this is now
So many ways to be humiliated
All they have to do is decide how
Blame it on the pressure to be thin or perfect
Or the cliques
There's always that one kid who's insecure enough to make everyone feel their pain
And the one kid who always is last picked
There's always that struggle to be normal
But then the kid you think is normal, turns out to be just like you
How there's the pressure to smoke that or drink this
And how you have no idea what to do
So many books on how to raise a teenager
Everyone has a different idea on how to do it right
The books can't tell you how to protect us

You didn't say goodbye
How could you leave me
How could you be so cruel
You don't call
You don't write
You don't even stop by
You said you'd protect me
You said you'd be there
Now it seems like you don't care
I miss you
I love you
I'm always thinking of you
You were the only one
I could bear to be around
Now you might as well be in the ground
You're dead to me
Can't you see
How it is that you've hurt me
I wish you were here
Can't you see my tears
You didn't say good bye
And now i cry
I used to say
That i hate you
Now i would love
Just to hug you
I used to wish
You would go away
But now you've left
I wish you'd stayed
Better than father
Better than mother
But not because you're my brother
You knew how hard it was
Feeling just a little
I'm sure now
It wasn't true
The importance is
That you knew
I don't blame you
I want to get away too
I just wish
I could reach you
Just to tell you
Your sister needs you

I can feel you,
slipping through my grasp.
I reach out,
but you fall even further.
I can't lose you now.
Not after it all.
I feel your controlled,
hard, stare, and I shiver.
I turn away.
You're not who I thought you were.
look up and see me.
I'm waiting for you,
to turn around any minute,
and realize what you've done.
Hold out your hand,
I can save you.
I won't be like her.
I won't let you fall.
You don't have to be,
that little boy anymore.
Lost and scared.
In search of something,
you will never find.
I'll make those feelings,
of fear and regret go away.
I love you.
Take my hand,
and we'll walk together.
Side by side,
till the end.
One PersonHeart still tornOne Person6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Still wondering why you're gone
Everything makes no sense
But nothing ever does
Always missing someone
Just once in my life...
Can happiness come?
Only wanting to be happy
But it never happens
Life's too fuck up
Something tragic always happens
Nothing ever stays good,
Never stay gold...
It's always tainted...
With evil and hatred
Love runs to the shadows
Hides until the sun comes out
But this is the city of Night,
Day will never come
It's always dark,
Raining and cold
So love hides
Right along with happiness
Cuddled up trying to stay warm
But soon they freeze to death
There will never be love...
No happiness in this city
Alone we live
Alone we die
No purpose to this life
Might as well let go
We never win
We never lose
So why do we keep fighting?
There's nothing we can do
We're just trying
Trying to bring back the love
Trying to find the happiness
But we'll never find it
In this city of Night
We lost our only light
The one who too

A Wish For Freedom
I, a child birthed in chains
Raised in a cage
But on this day- they will break
I was taught self-hatred
Learning that the differences were divided
Among the people who are considered “civilized “
Forcefully combining my fear and envy
As I was raised in the middle of this society
My power and pride were deprived of me
I was only an empty vessel
Believing that all promises were fabled
But once upon a calm- I witnessed hope's revival
Wings sprout from my tongue / Words from my soul are sung
A new voice's journey has begun / Let the era of silence be undone
Obtaining peace of mind / Experiencing freedom of heart
Allowing the colors to shine / The future will blind the scars
I had to fight the system; I had to stop the cycle
It was either my downfall or survival
So I reversed this downward spiral
Care not, for those w

Gun pointed at a child's head,
razor blades too close to the neck.
"Become a man" - he said.
"I don't want to. I'd rather be dead!"
I'm not a soldier, I'm a child.
I live in the city, I'm not wild.
I go to school, I'm civilised.
I read books, I love chimes.
You are a slave of your mind -
potential enemy, compassion blind.
If you cut yourself, you won't bleed -
you've got no blood, you soul-sick...
But I'm normal, I hate guns.
I respect my parents, I can't fight.
I love Frank Sinatra, James Blunt and The Who,
I hate pop-corn, big cars and kung-fu.
You are dead, because you fear,
because you love without compassion,
because you listen, but you don't hear,
because you watch, but you don't see.

The sweetest word is your name.
And the greatest thing is your love.
All the lonely tears that have escaped my eyes have made me who I am,
One to love you more.
All the times I felt I've found the one,
And all the times I've mourned over a bleeding heart,
All the things I've wished I've done,
And all the things I wished I hadn't helps me love you with purity and certainty.
All the times we fight feels like we're gambling our lives.
I hope we never lose.
I love you so much,
I love you with all my faults and all my achievements.
I love you with all that I am.
I love you for who you are.
I hope in the quietest of the night
when I whisper out to you you know just what to do.
You listen to hear my voice echoing how much I love you.
Teenagers Scare Me ShitlessTeenagers scare the shit out of Americunts! Why? According to them, we do promiscuous sex- excusable by itself, but made unbearably worse when it's the homosexual or orgy varieties. If you give us pills, you're not sure until it's too late if we'll either OD on them or get high on them. We're hooked on television, MySpace and music- all of which you provide for us, and then threaten to take away! You bitch about how we're horrible, we're anti-social, you just don't understand us, we're greedy, we don't love anyone but ourselves! We worry too much about our appearances- didn't you teach us it's what's inside that counts? We start fucking, and you think Wrong insides, even though that's how we made you! You can't trust us to do anything, and always bring up one mistake as evidence! If that doesn't work, you just say I was a teenager once, I know what it's like.

When she hurts no one sees.
When she bleeds no one cares.
When she cries no one hears.
She's gentle not rough. She's kind not cruel. She's sweet not mean. Because of this she blends in with the crowds.
When she loves no one cares.
When she sighs no one hears.
When she smiles no one sees.
She's dark not bright. She's quiet not loud. She's sad not happy. She's EMO, she's nonexistent but constantly ridiculed.

El amor y el tiempoExisten dos conceptos del amor, de la palabra que expresa ese sentimiento. El amor temporal u horizontal y el eterno o vertical.El amor y el tiempo10 years ago in Academic Essays More Like This
El corazón desea lo imperecedero, ahí la idea de permanencia está mal interpretada por la mente. Pero es lógico puesto que solo conocemos el plano horizontal o la dimensión tiempo con nuestros sentidos. Dentro de esa dimensión hay sólo dos posibilidades: Algo es instantáneo o es permanente. Lo permanente no es otra cosa que muchos instantes de tiempo sucesivamente; pero también empieza y termina. Lo permanente no es eterno. Nada puede ser eterno en la dimensión tiempo. Lo que nace en el tiempo muere en el tiempo. Si hay un principio, hay un fin.
Si ese amor tiene un comienzo en cierto momento en el tiempo, transcurriendo uno o más instantes. Entonces se acaba cuando se terminan esos instantes. Termina más tarde o más temprano. Si es uno o pocos instantes lo llamas instantáneo; si tarda más instantes de tiempo en llegar a su fin, lo llamas permanente. Pero esa

It hurts even more when your heart's breaking and u can't cry,
One thing that haunts me every day and every night is your name,
I'd say I'm happy for you, but you'd know it's all a lie.
I told myself I would never come in between you and your girl,
I know your happy with her, I can see it in your eyes, I can hear it in your voice,
My heart breaks every time you say that she's your girl,
I wanted to be your girl but I guess I was never your first choice.
Looking at you, looking at her, I wondered if I could've made you happy,
Your smile, your laughter, your face and your voice is burned in my head,
But then again I don't think I could've ever made you happy,
Sometimes thinking about you and her makes me want to die instead.
I promised myself that I will continue loving you no matter what,
I also promised myself that I will never jeopardize your happiness,
I cannot lie but my love for you will never part,
I promise you I will

What softly walks
around us here
and is never seen
but once with fear
who calls to us
from inner dark
to claim our souls
and leave His mark
His eyes are empty
His heart is too
He'll steal your soul
away from you
He lures us close
with taunting sleep
and leads us to
a sleep more deep
that cold caress
is nere mistaken
for once you're froze
you'll nere awaken
fear Him yes
but love Him too
He'll also take
your pain from you
who is this thing
that loves us so
to gives us death
with peace below
I know Him now
He is my friend
He'll guide me to

Dear Parents Of The WorldMarch 10, 2008Dear Parents Of The World7 years ago in Academic Essays More Like This
Dear all parents of the world,
Were thankful that you gave us life, but please dont force us into a mold you designed before we were born. Many times, we have dreams different then what you imagined we would. Sometimes, our young eyes see the world differently then you do, and we spot the opportunities you missed or ignored. Perhaps these openings spark our interest; give us a chance to prove that its not a terrible waste of time.
We are teenagers, so were still discovering who we are and what we like. Let us have a little bit of freedom over how we look, as long as we dont look downright trashy. If were into punk, please dont make us look prim and proper all the time, and vice versa. You are our parents, and you have a right to decide how we go out in public as we represent you, but please dont hinder our creative spirits.
Let us be unique. If your daughter dyes the roots of her hair bright red by mistake, please don
