I don’t know about you, but I spent my childhood excited about any time I was allowed to spend alone at home. Especially as a teen, I waited until my parents said they were going out to enjoy my individuality. As teens, some of us threw parties, others just relished in their ability for freedom and autonomy. Everything that fell into place was ergonomically correct…
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.
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.
The art above my bed reminds me to push on– teaches me I’m worthy– Reminds me how you’re gone.
All these people telling me what to do. Up in my head with all their views!
I won’t let the world get me down!
I’m tired of losing my crown!
Quit looking at yourself
With such disdain–
Letting others find flaws
To increase the pain.
Shine in your heart!
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.
Who are you to disagree
With the things that make me…ME?
I’m lying in the present while nightmares of my past
Come gripping at my soul – my future overcast.
