Don't Stop

I've got to keep on moving,
there's no time to take a break.
If I let up now,
it just might be my last mistake.
I need to take a breath,
but just can't afford to slow.
I've made too little progress
and I've got too far to go.

Fallen Angel
Fallen Angel Crawling in my forlorn appearance I hide my soul behind these tattered wings Tattered and broken as they are Plucked of light, stained in tears and blood. In quiet despair upon the cold earth Smeared in dirt I crouch upon my weary knees And clutched timidly between my fingers Rests one last jewel of Hope. A single unblemished plume plucked From the silver light of dawn A feathered ray of light from beyond To illuminate the void that has me bound. This precious barb of silk Once lost as I was and forgotten Blazes now to immerse me in radiant bliss To wash away the pain, draw me from the abyss. So now I fade away…

Suicide
Mom I love you Don't blame it on yourself Dad forgive me I couldn't ask for help Sis don't hate me For leaving you alone Take my picture Off the table by the phone It never belonged there anyway This happy family was broken Long before I left it anyway I don't expect you to understand Just why it was that I couldn't stay I know you can't hear me But I'm writing this for you It is my last punk song Telling you my life is through It's okay to hate me Just don't miss me when I'm gone Cuz I don't deserve it When I have done so much wrong I never belonged here anyway This happy family was broken Long before I left it anyway

Rape
You said it would not hurt, as you advanced; Yet nothing but pain was inflicted, your Secretive smirk left me lost in a trance, I was young and vulnerable, unsure. You told me to trust you, though I did not Your words sliced through my soul; you took control Of my mind, you left me with not one shot To sew back together this gaping hole. You took from me, my pride, my innocence So you could receive what I did not want To give you; You struck, as though with vengeance, Though I had not wronged you; I fear you'll haunt My dreams forever, release from my mind Never, you poisoned this victim; left blind.
