Liberian Peter

DownUp +5

No one asks where I am from.
I must be from a place where no one likes to come.
I have always checked these books in and out.
Peter you’re a loser with out a doubt.

No one knows that I exist.
I host the fiesta of the non fiction list.
Putting books in ABC order.
Bossing them around like they were my daughters.
My peace and quiet is always lost.
When people complain how much a book cost.

What they say must be true.
I have no life and nothing to do.

No one knows I will commit suicide today.
Hopefully the books will see it my way.
Carrying on to find a new reader.
But none better than the Liberian Peter.

Sweetheart it’s something about you, that’s driving me insane.
I always crack a smile, whenever I hear your name.
I think about you all day long I think I need a break.
Sometimes I sit back and count the breaths you take.

Sweetheart it’s something about you, that makes me want you bad.
I never seen a girl like you look so beautiful when she’s sad.
You’re so sexy no other girl can compare to you.
That’s why they try to imitate and do the things you do.

Sweetheart it’s something about you, that makes me act a fool.
You’re the only reason I wake up to come to school.
If you were not here, everyday I’d probably cry.
Missing your smile, your laugh, and watching you walk by.

Sweetheart it’s something about you, that makes you look so good.
I’d spend the rest of my life with you if only I could.
I still love you Tynisha even till this day.
And it’s something about you that makes me feel this way.

Finally Free

DownUp +23

I loved him dearly, more than I loved myself.
It’s supposed to be this way, he said it was for my own health.
But as I got older it just didn’t feel right.
With him taking pictures, rubbing and touching me all night.
Then I told him to stop or that I would tell.
That’s when my whole life was turned into a living hell.

No more outside, no more seeing the light of day.
When people came over he said I’d had moved away.
He locked the doors, beat me up and took away my food.
He had his way with me, the worst was when he was in a good mood.
He said that he loved me and hoped I understood.
He promised I wouldn’t get away but I just knew I would.

One night he was drunk and left the door cracked.
I busted out of there running and didn’t look back.
I was so happy that for the first time in years I saw light.
And now that I broke away I can start a new life.
I planned to forget my past and what he did to me.
Because for the first time in my life I was finally free.

My Dad

DownUp +16

Never had my pops, he was never around.
He was always on the road, always out of town.
But when he did come through he was acting crazy.
Mama said he was a fool getting caught up with the ladies.
He’d might stop by and throw me a dollar or something.
It wasn’t really much but it was better than nothing.
When he was gone I was supposed to be the man of the house.
Ready to take on anybody but was scared of a mouse.

He used to make fun of me, said it was going to make me tough.
I did a lot of things for him but it was never enough.
All the kids my class said they were going to be like their fathers.
But not me, I never had one, because mind didn’t bother.
He once said he was going to take me fishing.
And when that day came up he went missing.
On my birthday I waited up for him all night.
Mama said go to bed because he was getting high as a kite.

He did a lot of bad things but I can’t ask him to be something he’s not.
Because that’s my dad and it’s the only one I got.

I tried…

DownUp +34

Every night I go to bed
Thinking of all that’s done and said
If I had just one wish to get back the lost part of me
I’d take you back in time and make you see
I’m not what you’re mistaking me to be
You and me together is all I wanna see
Baby, I know you don’t wanna hear
But all I do right now is swear
That I never meant to hurt you
Never to see you cry
How is it that you don’t see
How much i try…

Without You

DownUp +17

You’re gone,
Yet here I am.
All alone,

I tried my best
To go on without you,
And the worst part is,
That you still love me, too.

You are gone,
But our love is still there.
I was wrong,
And I’m now in despair.

Yet, in all of my sadness, I’ve found,
That though my feet are truly bound,
Life goes on; we have to keep moving.
To me, this is something that’s worth proving.

Forever I’ll love you.
That is the truth.
But I have to keep going
With or without you.

I Love You Baby

DownUp +3

I don’t wanna be in blue
I just wanna be with you,
I don’t think I’m a fool,
Cos being with you is so cool.

I know I’m just a simple guy
And to you I can’t lie,
You’re my dream girl
And the one who can make my world twirl.

You’re my better half
And with you, I’m willing to live my life.
Through my ups and downs, you’re my guiding light
And I promise you, I will always be at your side.

You’re all that I need
You’re all that I want
Please be with me
Until the end of time

Baby you’re my everything,
Come to me and feel my heart beating
It only screams out your name,
That’s why baby I only want to say is “I LOVE YOU”
