Ahh, DramaAhhh.....DramaMore Like This
Life is like a soap opera
Always so full and ripe with drama
Just when you think everything's okay
Another piece of drama falls into place
Whether it be your home life or your best friend
You have to wonder will it ever end
So and so said something to so and so about you
So you spread something nasty about them too
Suddenly it comes out that it wasn't true
Someone else lied to get the best of you
So you set out to do damage control
Of course its too late by then, you already know
You feel all eyes on you as you walk down the hall
You feel like you have been backed against the wall
You go home at the end of the day feeling pretty low
Hoping you'll be forgiven, time is cruel you know
You promise when you wake up you're going to make it right
Tonight is going to be a very long night
Sleep doesn't seem to find you
Your mind thinking it all through
So the next day comes and you are prepared
To face her and her friends, you feel so scared
You tell her that you're sorry and hop
Frozen In Time 2The driver clearly sees that Sara is in no shape to go home yet, so he drives around the block a couple of times. He says, "let it all out, sweetheart, when you do, you will see that it will start getting better." Sara says, "I don't understand the ways of the world, I am in love with a decent human being and one of the most kindest person I will ever meet and just because he is from a struggling family, my parents would never agree to let me date him or God forbid, marry him. I think he feels the same way about me, but we only get to talk for a few minutes at a time, because he works so hard every day." The driver says, "well, I can relate in a sense, to what you are going through, my dear child."More Like This

Frozen In TimeThe year is 1980 and the place is Jarret Junction, Colorado. It is a small town that time has forgot. The gas pumps still say self serve, the colas still have to have a bottle opener to get the top off. Gas was still 90 cents a gallon, you could buy milk, cigarettes, gas, bread, sugar, ice cream, car oil, gum and candy, all at the same place.More Like This
There was only one restroom that both sexes used. The old concrete floors that look like they haven't been swept in years. The cash register was the finger punch type that worked when it felt like it. The owner lived out back of the station. His dog watching people through his closed eyelids beside the shop. The owner standing there with a grease rag hanging out of his back pocket of his greasy overalls, and his once white t-shirt has seen its better days. He has a cigar hanging out of his weather beaten face and a grin to match.
His wife passed away a few years ago and he kept running the business by the skin of his teeth, barely turning enough p

She tells Zeb that she needs help with something and could he come by her house after work so she could clear something up. He says no problem and she leaves.More Like This
Later after work, Zeb is at Janet's apartment and she is in tears, he asks her what is wrong, and she tells him everythings ruined, how she can't get anything right and how Sara is counting on her, and Zeb says, "we will fix this, it will be okay." She stops crying and says, "thank you, Zeb, I knew I could count on you."

Molly is standing at the stove humming a tune. She turns to see Zeb crossing the kitchen to the table. She says, "why, don't you look handsome this morning, got an important date?" Zeb smiles and says, "I sure do, mam, and I would like you to be my escort." Molly says, "sorry, handsome, I am spoken for."

John takes her for another spin around the dance floor and then they make their way back to the table. Candlelight is flickering and the music is great and the food is delicious.

He tells Zeb that he will be coming back in a day or two, and Zeb says he can't wait to see him. He hangs up the phone and starts working on his homework. It is 3 months to graduation and he has got all sorts of things on his mind. A few hours later Sara's driver pulls up outside the station and is eager to talk to Zeb to see what his mom said. Zeb says, " hello, can I ask your name?" He smiles and says, "of course, I am sorry, my name is John, and your mom's name is Molly, isn't it?"

Zeb says that sounds like a good idea if they don't get caught by someone who would tell her parents. Sara says that he worries too much as she grabs his hand and leads him outside to his truck. Zeb is looking at Sara sitting behind the wheel and says, "what are you doing, nobody drives my truck but me." Sara says," I want to drive to the lake."

Your Lying EyesYour Lying EyesMore Like This
Your lying eyes try to hide
All of the twisting inside
You try to come up with the perfect line
One I buy every time
Your lips are moving and I hear the words
The bile that rides up and starts to curd
Your eyes are darting left to right
Trying desperately to keep mine out of sight
I lock my eyes on to yours as you start to sweat
The story you're telling is the one I easily forget
The truth is hiding behind those eyes of green
Your lips are selling you short it seems
The minute your lips parted and the words come out
I knew that you were lying by your eyes full of doubt
I cannot believe that you are trying and trying
To spew this line of crap that I am supposedly buying
Its time to shut your mouth and close your eyes
I am totally not believing any of your lies

How destroying a culture is ever a solution
Why we go on if we can't seem to frogive
or waste more time if you care not to live

That a women should not be allowed to give birth
All of these worries could have easily been avoided
If you'd just put your trust in our Heavenly Father

You see right through, as if you knew
The knife inside that I hide

I wipe a tear, you don't hear
I'm in love with you, everyone above you
I let others walk, believed your talk
Of love and bliss, how did I miss
The signs so true, the real you
I let myself down, to wear your gown
You were in it for the game,I was in for the name
I lost alot along the way, I never knew how to play
Friends would tell me to break free, I couldn't you were part of me
So I stayed and stayed, while I was played and played
Only myself to blame, to stay in this game
You have played your hand very well, Now you must live in your own hell
I broke free and discovered a whole new me
I hold my head up high, As you ask yourself why
The Path HomeThe Path HomeMore Like This
No matter where I may roam
I always find the path home
No matter how far I walk
Or how much I seem to talk
I like to have talks with the trees and land
Like someone is there holding my hand
When I get upset I like to roam
Be by myself and on my own
I talk and talk and tell me true
The path home is waiting for you
If I go there now it would not be good
I might say things I not normally would
Sometimes I reign my anger in tight
And try to put it away for the night
I take deep breaths and exhale out
Wondering what I am so angry about
I keep telling myself, to understand
Anger is not settled with a fist or hand
As I head down that path on my way home
Never more to roam and roam...

The image of you that won't let me go
The beat of your heart in our warm embrace
The shape and the outline of your face
The soft of your lips as they touch mine
The sweet taste of strawberry wine
Your voice so soft as you whisper to me
The warmth on my ear as you speak slowly
I feel your hot breath upon my skin
I toss my head back as I breathe you in
My heart beats so loudly I know you can hear
Please don't ever let go, that is my fear
I need your touch to get me through
To wake me slowly out of my dreams of you
I thought I knew you, turns out I don't
I want to look again.............but know I won't

The Rivals Of LoveMore Like This
Two girls young and alone
Together as they've grown
The best of friends
Who's friendship came to an end
A girl all pretty in pink
Didn't care what anyone would think
About the boy she really liked
His hair jet black and spiked
Purple was her best friend's color
But they fought like they hated each other
Once the best of friends
Promised to be there till the end.
The girl in pink was trying to become strong
The girl in purple could only laugh and tell her she was wrong
The girls vowed not to lose
It was up to the boy to choose
The boy only walked away
He wouldn't hear what the girls had to say
The girl in pink refused to be weak
When power was the thing the boy set out to seek
Pretty hair once long and flowing
Fell to the ground, and only the girl in pink knowing
What cutting her hair had cost
Pretty hair and a promise to a friend was lost.
A girl so strong became so weak
Was the girl in pink
The girl in purple was so scared
Her friend had lost her beautiful hair.
The girls had made a d

When we saw the Ferris Wheel my eyes opened wide.
The fair comes around once a year
Families and friends gather here.
You pay you're money to play a game
Some are fun and some are lame.
You can buy some tickets or a wrist band
Which is always placed on your right hand.
Peanut, popcorn, and cotton candy too
In shades of yellow, white, pink, and blue.
The weather is hot and sunny
Don't be a scrooge and spend your money.
You stand in line and wait your turn
Being patient is a good thing to learn.
Take a break to drink and eat
And also to rest your tired feet.
When the sun goes down the lights come on
Some times the Carnies will play your favorite song.
As you head home when the day is done
You can't wait until next year to have more fun.

I heated the griddle, and carefully poured the batter in little circles, watching them sizzle on the hot surface. The scent of the cooking mixture made me mouth water, as I waited to flip them over. The smell filled first the kitchen, then the entire house, waking up the others. I chuckled to myself as I heard them scamper out of bed, and sprint down the stairs to the kitchen, e

Once inside, the people that worked there showed them to their rooms while carrying their bags in carts. The halls were wider than usual. When they opened one of the doors, they showed them in. when the four were inside the rooms, the three amateur trainers were in total awe at the room. It was like a prince or a princess' room. There were two king-size beds with canopies, the largest televisions available and so much more. Bianca was most ecstatic that she wanted to try everything in the room.
