A Strong Will

DownUp 0

My life has been hard,
and all my burdens great.
But I regret none of my choices,
I’ve made my own fate.
So take a look at my life,
and judge as you will.
God watches over me,
and cares for me still.
He blessed me with a child,
straight from heaven above.
With a spirit like an angel,
he fills my life with happiness and Love!

But jealously has created the harlots three,
The sloth, the addict, and the liar they be.
Pale skin hides they’re sullied souls,
with bodies like hags faces like ghouls!

Disguised as a friend the first did come,
the slovenly, the cruel, the downright scum!

A mans young life the second did take,
this foul addict, this thief, this snake!

Casting her foul shadow onto our lives,
the last one came using lies like knives!

But they harm only themselves’
with every evil stone they cast.
My foundations laid in brick,
and I have built it to last!

In the end it will be a simple mirror they face,
and see their lives empty, no honor or grace!
They never admit they’re own guilt you see,
but lie as they might they will NEVER be me!

Do you wonder when you’re hurting
If it’s really all worthwhile
All that loving, caring, sharing
Just hoping for a little smile.

When you watch a loved one suffer
In constant pain, confusion too
Thinking back to all the good times
Knowing there’s nothing you can do.

Perhaps it’s better like a snail
To build a rock hard shell
To keep the pain and suffering out
But no, for we should tell

Our dear ones how we feel
To show we love and care
And even when they sometimes suffer
They know, for them you’re always there.

For if the clocks could turn back time
To good old days gone by
Wouldn’t life be so much better
No wonder we feel we want to cry.

Are we friends or more than that?

I had you once,
And I let you go.
Times were tough,
I said lets just move on.

I wanted to know,
If you cared enough about me.
To say don’t let me go,
Let’s get past this and be.

To tell me everything’s fine,
That they will get better.
I can’t get you off my mind.
So to let you know I wrote this letter.

So many words were said,
I listened to them all.
As I laid in my bed,
That’s when things started to fall.

I stayed up late at night,
Thinking about you.
You told me it’ll be alright,
And I believed you too.

Things began to get worse,
We started to fall.
I didn’t know what to do,
Or who to listen to after all.

I ended things,
After only a short time.
It happened so fast,
An now im so confused.

I hate that things ended,
I still want to be with you.
Maybe in time,
You’ll want me too.

I now realize,
Listening to people was wrong.
If things work out,
Then maybe we do belong.

If not then,
That’s fine too.
I hope we can still remain friends,
Hopefully things don’t change.

Let Me Go

DownUp 0

Music take me away
Some other place, some other day
Help me find a way
For once to just be okay

Play the notes I need to hear
Bringing death oh so near
Don’t even bother to shed a tear
I know you wont think of missing me dear

Sing me your song so soft and light
It brings me comfort as I die this night
Let me go, do not fight
I’ll disappear like, in the sky, a kite

I hope the music will take you away
Maybe back to the old days
Help you hold on and find a way
Than maybe you too will be okay

I’ll play the notes you need to hear
But I’m playing them to keep death at bay and me near
Even though you have not, I will cry tears
I miss you so very much dear

Singing you your song so dark yet light
Maybe it will bring you comfort as I leave you tonight
I have lost you, lost this fight
Please let me go; you cant hold on to a flying away kite .

I will never forget the day my dad came to my front door
he told me the bad news so I didn’t want to live anymore

Walked outside greeted by a man in his blues
then I started to believe that this was real news

I guess I took you for granted and was expecting you to come home
now I know how it feels to be so alone

The next few weeks dragged on and on
I still can’t believe that you’re really gone

I watched your coffin being carried off the plane
and we all knew that life wouldn’t be the same again

Then came the day you were layed to rest
and everyone spoke about how you were the best

That night a lot of eyebrows were shaved
It’s exactly the way you would have behaved!

Not a day goes by that I don’t think of you
And im still struggling to believe that this is all true

At least you can look after our little sister
And let her know that we all miss her.

Rest in Peace Bro
Love you so much .

You pretended to show you loved me,
Pretended to show you cared,
no shoulder to cry on,
No one to be there,

Love is something godly a parent can show,
shall you love me?
Its not an emotion,
only a scene.

Love is something only a father can sow,
so dad,
show me you love me,
pretend you care,
But when you need me,
i will not be there.

ditch me,
leave me.
Never gona let,
you see me like this writing,
i dont need regret!

I dream,
I sit,
Thinking of dad.

I dream,
I sit,
I think,
never gonna let him make me sad.

Silent in The Shadows

DownUp 0

Far away in the corner, away from ones sight
As the moon rises into the night,
Shadowed by the dark, silenced by the breeze
Tucked far beneath the branches of the flowing trees.

Huddled, cold and hungry she waits
Not knowing what” will be her fate,
She knows it’s a struggle to just stay alive
All she wants is to be happy, hopeful and thrive.

She whispers to god and waits in silence
For the answers she desperately seeks.
Slightly battered confined to a small space,
She knows she must find a safer place.

Till then she’ll stay…
Far away in a corner, away from ones sight
As the moon rises into the night.
Shadowed by the dark
Silenced by the breeze, she waits
And weeps….
