When life gives you lemons, make orange juice, and keep the world to wonder how you did it.

Women are like angels. You break our wings... we simply continue to fly... on broomsticks. We're flexible like that (;


I put my hands up to my ears,
And shut my eyes.
I think of happy things,
While silently I cry.

Behind my lids I see,
Behind my hands I hear.
Inside my heart I feel,
All the noises pressing near.

Their words, they dance around me,
A soft sound on the wind.
The seeds of doubt have been embedded,
And are tearing at my skin.

I fight it back for long,
But not every battle can be won.
Soon I just lay down.
I give up. I am done.

The sadness fights its way,
Up to my very soul.
Until I become an empty shell,
Emotionless and dull.

I have my battle scars,
And I have my battle wounds.
Sometimes I'd like to think,
That it will be over soon.

With every noise that's said,
A piece of me will die.
I'll lie down in surrender,
And slowly close my eyes.


The author's comments:
What really inspired this piece was mostly things I have heard about online and in daily life. About bullying, giving up, depression, cutting, suicide, things like that. All of this is so common now.

Thank you. It was supposed to be a sad ending. Sad endings are the most powerful. Happy endings are to... predicted.

I love that ending. Everything seems perfect. Until that sad ending. Powerful.

It is supposed to be vague, so that a wide array of people can relate to it. And thank you(: This was the first piece I wrote in years xD So I guess it is a little rough.

I love the second verse. The whole thing is very deep, but without your description about the piece, it's  little vague and ambiguous. (This can be a good thing though; it's up to you if you want it to be open-ended and it does work here.)
