Welcome home, my child,
Where have you been?
What have you done?
What have you seen?
And why is your face
so bloody and bruised?
Why have you been crying?
Child, what is your news?
Come sit on my lap
Come whisper to me
Tell me what is the matter?
What is it you need?
I know you're not perfect,
I created you that way
And I'm always here waiting
at the end of the day.
I love you my child,
and, no matter what you've done,
I will always be here,
at each set of the sun.
You see, my darling,
I accepted again
my own son, who I sent
to die for your sin.
He took all your burdens
upon His own back
and those scars in His hands
are proof of that fact.
He loved you so much;
He endured every lash,
and bought you with His blood,
not by barter or cash.
He's felt every feeling;
He knows what it's like
to be beaten and kicked
and then left to die.
I did all these things;
I'm the one and the same.
I took all your worries,
your pain and your shame.
My child, you are forgiven,
you always have been.

He was the only guy I truely loved
He was the only guy I cared about
He was the first guy I cried myself to sleep for
He was the guy who showed me affection
He was the guy who made me so happy for the first time
He was the guy who Broke my Heart in half
What did I do to deserve this torment??
Did I say something wrong?
Did I NOT make him happy?
Haters, please.I finally understandHaters, please.7 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Why there are haters out there
They just yell, instead of lend a hand
They just rant, not giving a care.
They're just jealous
Of the skills they cannot posses
When they see the great art, the hide how zealous
They really are, the are obsessed
So I laugh in their faces
They think they can get me down
I erase yesterdays traces
Of when I would cry and frown
At what they would say
it's just words of shit, I now know
The can't bring me down this fine day
That only happened a long time ago
So take my advice and shove it back
Show them that you aren't weak, show them you can fight
Express everything, show them that courage is what you don't lack
Show them that you are strong, show them you're right.
Because you are...

His kisses are like raindrops,
that fall during summer night's rain,
The kind that make me want to dance,
and are the ones that make me feel alive.
His magnificent coffee bean hazel eyes,
are like an abyss of silence,
That display the words he can't say,
and they're that kind that blow me away.
His smile is like a Kodak moment,
that brightens up my whole day,
It's like a breath-taking view,
a once in lifetime chance to see.
His heartbeat is my favorite song,
that I'm addicted to hearing,
His heart is my anti-drug,
one of the very few things that I cherish.
My love for him is like rain-kissed leaves,
that are forever falling off the trees,
Which I'm falling for him more and more,
and sometimes it scares me to death.
My life without him in it,
is like a world without color,
God without his son Jesus Christ,
and a life without love and only hatred.
To him I am perfect,
but a perfect girl isn't real,
I may seem like a beautiful rose,
but in truth, every rose has its thorn.

Pathological LiarIt is no mysteryPathological Liar6 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
That your lips only speak of fictional stories
You use to compose your identity
Not a word you speak has any resemblance with truth
For you are made of a thick façade of lies
Whether it be big or small, you care not
As long as there is no glimpse of honesty
Underlying in the words you speak
For the revelation of truth is what you fear most
I know that those lies masquerade
An overt denial of unpleasant realities
I know that deep down you are a tormented soul
That lies provide you with relief
A relief you long for
I know that you are a stranger in your own body
But you have lost all credibility now
Your lies are inconsistent
You are no longer a father
But a manipulative man
That only breeds chaos in our family
Your deception is no longer welcome
You, Dad, are no longer welcome in my life
Now it is my time to neglect you
The way you neglected me
For the way you abused my mother
For the emptiness you have left in my heart
As I grew up without a father
For all the pro
Love QuoteWere not sarcastic- were hilariousLove Quote8 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Were not annoying- were just cooler than you
Were not BITCHES- we just dont like you
And were not obsessed- were just best friends
No matter where I am or what I am doing, when you come to mind a smile comes to my face.
Ill always be beside you
Until the very end,
Wiping all your tears away
Being your best friend
Ill smile when you smile
& feel all the pain you do
& if you cry a single tear
I promise Ill cry too.
I love you, not maybe, not tomorrow, not someday.
Right now at the is very moment, I realized something.
I need you, I trust you, I admire you, I want you.
And you can be wrong a lot of the time
And we can fight and be mad at each other,
HatersI always have the haters on my backHaters6 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
Always trying to cut me down
Criticizing everything I do
And Im screaming inside
But I never make a sound
Never make a sound
Backstabbing comes naturally for them
Insults come and they hit home
I tried standing up for myself once
But I realize now that I shouldve known
I shouldve known
Sometimes you just have to ignore them
Let it roll of your back
Sometimes comebacks do no good
Sometimes theres no point in fighting back
Let the haters remain haters
Show no reaction, take the high road
Dont let them see you break down
Cuz in the end
Theyre the ones
Wholl end up alone
So I go and act like Im fine
I pretend its a great day
Ive got bullies throwing insults like darts
But I go along like I dont hear what they say
What they say
Im clumsy so I fall down a lot
Bruises: yeah, I know the feeling
But those injuries dont hurt as much
As the scars theyve left under my skin
Beneath my skin

Youth suicide: brutal truth.Youth suicide: brutal truth.11 years ago in Editorial More Like This
What is it about youth suicide that propels us to be so ignorant? Is there some sort of poison that flows from the word, or are we as people just so fucking cruel, cold, and heartless that we refuse to discuss the thing that is the number one cause of death in our country? If everyone cared a little bit more, and everyone looked at it on a personal level, maybe we could reduce these numbers. Why isn't enough being done to protect this generation? I'll tell you why. Because mothers and fathers and aunts and uncles and brothers and sisters and girlfriends and boyfriends say, "It will never happen to my children, it will never happen to anyone I know, why should I care?". It isn't until youth suicide is right under their nose that they go, "Well fuck, maybe I should think about this." And then it's too late because they have already lost someone close to them, or at the least, someone that they know.
For those suffering from depression, it's even harder. They know about the seriousness of

I'm falling away from the group
Soon I'll have to start all over
Am I just being selfish
Is it just me being me

They're my sisters
I feel like there's secrets between us
Am I just being selfish

The shadow of doubt
I need to know how to get out
They're leaving me
Did I do something wrong
I'll never forget my friends
From the group

I hope I see you again
My caring friends

With your muffin top
Talking shit that never stops and
You think the world revolves around you but
The whole world thinks you're just a slut and
You say you started every trend
Taking credits that never ends
And say you're so lonely with your million myspace friends
You take pictures of your whimpy papercuts
Hot Topic Shopaholic
Broken hearts, flirty frolic
Cut here, cut there
You're an ugly mirror of conformity
Absorbing everything that it sees
Stealing any chance of originality
Anything and everything monkeys portray
You quickly turn into a cliche
Paranoid & insecure to take off the mask
Without a garden of lies, you can't last
Finding yourself isn't an excuse
When you're mimicking everything you do

Broken hearts, flirty frolic
Cut here, cut there
You use mother nature as your escape
Baked up, fucked up, with a smiley face

Everyday of my life,
I feel so left out in the world.
Eyes itching with pain.
Wishing that one day,
Someone could save me
From this living hell.
No one ever does.
Happy moments automatically turns
into painful reality.
Abomination to my heart
Inflamation to the skin,
Cannot take the beating of sorrow.
Release me from this fate,
I can't take this any longer.

have fallen between the lines.
all the tears you shed are now
salt on the desert land of my heart.
there's no sympathy:
only your reaching hand as i walk away.
the flavour of this dark night lays on my lips.
i turned my back on you long before this day,
long before i woke up after dreaming of flowers
and tasting bright dead stars;
long before i longed for your touch
to calm down the monsters in my mind;
before drowning the little girl i used to be
in the swamp of my innocence;
before believing in unhappy endings
and sinking in my putrid hopes:
i gave up on you the moment i loved you.
Losing youLosing you11 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Forgetting you is the hardest thing I've ever tried,
looking back at all the great memories,
my heart breaks further beyond repair,
as I realize that you're not coming back.
The laughter we've shared for so long,
keeps ringing in my ears,
but the happiness is hard to recall,
forgotten in the blink of an eye.
I'll miss the support you gave me for so long,
the shoulder you lent me to cry on,
if you leave, a part of me will be missing,
a part of me that I'll never regain.
But the apology simply can't escape my mouth,
it's held back as I bite my tounge,
I just can't let the "I'm sorry," out,
for it's just too much shame to bare.
Yet the rift between us is too wide,
for exclusively one man's creation,
the monstrocity is far too large,
to target either of us to blame.
Still, I deserve an apology too,
after all it takes two to fight,
and I can't stop thinking about all the things you said,
the pain refuses to reside.
So, if indeed, this is the end,
this is my, "I'm sorry",
this is my, "I'm ov

Everything swirling this way and that
Things change and things are alright elsewhere.
Between times this time seems out of place.
Where are all the bright sparks,
Where've all the mad people gone?
Where are all the rebels and where are our anti-heroes?
The way it is the way it was, love can be lost and found.
Rain falling over time, our time is taking place between waiting rooms.
Painting tears in their eyes. Dreams rise to the sky and vaporise.

Just to see the world
To see how it progressed
To breathe it's sweet incense
To hear emotions, love and hate,
To feel it's powers eminating from it's core,
It's heart, full of passion and might
A soul of intensity, a face of fragility.
To see the beauty of it all,
I sat atop the moon.
