See me tomorrow if we have it enough to pain it away MAG

July 22, 2008
By Austin Palmer, Deacatur, IL

I see me and you
But land-locked hotel rooms
No doors in rooms that never lead to another
Driven there with choices made so wrong
What hell we have found!
Dream of the night forever!
Curse and terror
That my dreams of finding home
Can only cease in all our passion!

Equivalent exchange,
My heart for yours!
Something that can’t be done
Because you’re more than I could ever dream to be!

What life took can never be fair to us!
But it’s all the same for what they have forfeited,
Just not to us

Dead dreams
October screams
For once and for all!
We all land safely
Only to drop to our demise!
That’s how they get us
Signing up for a war in my mind
My heart has been left behind

Equivalent exchange,
My heart for yours!
Something that can’t be done
Because you’re more than I could ever dream to be!
Curse and terror
That my dreams of finding home
Can only cease in all our passion!
What hell we have found!
Dream of the night forever!

Equivalent exchange,
My heart for yours!
It’s just something that can’t be done!


The author's comments:
this is part of hope. the decision i have made to recognize the truth of who i am. the way that my family would try to destroy who i am inside...... if at all to notice the person i am is not who they want me to be so they have convinced themselves that i don't even know who i am.
welcome to to this hell that i have come to call my life. in short speak swiftly to encourage the person next to you to dream hard and understand who they are... my reader live and be who you were born to be!

Hey Austen, Man you have talent. Don't let anyone try to change you, or tell you you're clueless about yourself. Be who YOU are. Hang in there, it'll get better.
