Gleaming in her eyes, and fire in her soul… brought happiness or heartache– Depending on what they stole.
With the strength of this force field they won’t feel the need to harm… The road I traveled– broken– was a lesson to keep at arms.
Who am I to say? I have a letter made of steel. I rap underneath the table. But I can spin a rhyme just like a wheel.
Does anyone know what love is? I’ve been swayed so many times in this superficial heartache– as if I’m doing time for crimes…
I left hell when I said goodbye. You looked at me and shrugged. You asked if I was sure enough– The distance as we hugged.
Been battered, bruised, and torn– Kicked while I was down. Forced to dress your way, so you could steal my crown.
This world…why? What did we do? Why must we hate? What must we prove?
The art above my bed reminds me to push on– teaches me I’m worthy– Reminds me how you’re gone.
Tomorrow’s kiss– a love spoken softly– Dreams of tomorrow in a world that’s costly…
The world is behind me–
I’m taken away on a silver platter.
I want the love–sick of the fear. How will I cope? How can I hear?
All these people telling me what to do. Up in my head with all their views!
Excuse me. Can you tell me where you left my heart? It’s not for free.
Disease and anger flowing hot
Forgetting all that makes us free
What do I have to prove to anyone?
The sun, the moon, the stars?
Immersed in the acid
Of my own pain
I won’t let the world get me down!
I’m tired of losing my crown!
Of the world
Why am I always running away?
Quit looking at yourself
With such disdain–
Letting others find flaws
To increase the pain.
Shine in your heart!
We are all here
For a purpose
Is there an answer to all of this madness?
Will I get past all my long-lasting sadness?
Can you help me?!
I’ve lost my mind!
Is what we all desire
The muse that sets
Your heart on Fire
Stop all that unnecessary chatter
As the sun disappears to the other side,
I often wonder why I hide.
On the verge of insanity–
I can’t recognize my own name.
It’s been too long, my friend!
The girl shyly
Gazed up and let out
A small whisper
“I love you!”
I just desire invisibility
In my existence right now–
It seemed illegal
For her to be so tame.
Wear and tear–
An unexpected blend
Of twists and turns–
Cherish every moment–
Never take things for granted.
For someday, you will reap
What your heart has planted.
They say what doesn’t kill you
Provides you a stronger mind,
But I really am deeply disgusted
With getting in too many binds.
Hats off to you for your brilliant performance,
But you don’t care about me and my life!
She sat beside the lovely stream.
She enjoyed the idea
That she could be herself.
Life is a paradoxical maze–
It feeds on the weak
And shows fear before praise.
Insist on today
Being the day you
Lost and alone–
Spinning my Web of
Like a reflection
In wavering water–
The image is clear,
Everyone has an opinion–
Everyone thinks he’s right!
Everyone says he tries his hardest
Before he falls asleep at night.
It all seems clear–
Not black nor white.
It all seems more ethical–
Not wrong nor right.
Today I’m going to live my life my way!
I’m going to laugh, sing, jump, and play!
I never want to go down that road again–
One that leaves me wondering who I am.
He sat there shivering
Gripping his beer
As if it would spoil
Feeling optimistic about my day–
So many things I want to say!
How many times must I make mistakes
Before I move on, grow, and take chances?
We wish, we sigh–
We wave goodbye.
Inspiration comes from within, but
Sometimes it’s difficult to arouse.
