Spinning always spinning....when life puts me down I'll give you a call~respecturself7


Cruel hands leave marks uncovered; Innocent with no protector;
Running alone in the Darkness Tonight; running to hide with only Bruises they'll survive.


A black faced enemy with blood Stained lips she smiles as she Touches you and your body's frozen Stiff; survival is an instinct but There's no room for an escape, it's Now you have to choose will it be Her blood on your blade?

Tell me are we still innocent when We're just fighting to survive? We Don't mean to cause the pain, but Sometimes we do to stay alive.

In the dark, running, with no Protector, alone with my enemy's is It wrong to try and be a hero? Or In the morning, when the sun comes Up,am I just like them?

I was inspired by this book I read about this kid who was physically and s**ually abused. It's about wanting revenge for the pain and all they've stolen and inflicted upon you, wanting to protect the innocent from those that hurt you. It's about trying to decide if that makes you a hero or the same as your enemy's. It's about internal conflict, and trying to discern the line between good and evil. I wrote a story basically about the scenario this poem portrays. I personally, have never been through anything at all like this. You can put all the blame on empathy. Most of my poems are written thusly.

I was inspired by this book I read about a kid that was physically and sexual abused.  It's about the innocent being attacked and wanting revenge, wanting to defend the others who will be hurt by the people that hurt them. Trying to choose if that makes them a hero, or one of the very people he's trying to fight. It's about internal conflict, and and finding the line between good and evil. I wrote this story,  about the scenario portrayed in this poem. I've never been through anything remotely close  to this situation.  Empathy, that ability, is where credit is due. Most of my poems are written thusly.

wow, in that case, sounds like your bf has lived a life to be able to write something deep like that. Still, that doesn't' answer as to why this young person, lady, would write this........

It sounds like something my boyfriend would write about his life in the streets. Survival of the fittest, killing because otherwise you will be killed, questioning your innocence because you have killed, no protector, wondering how alike your enemies you are.

i don't know how i take it. i know i like it. i guess to me it feels like an endless race to find out who you are. you don't want to be like the people who made you scared and run away, but after everything you've done and been through you fear that's what you're becoming.
