This one goes to you...
I hate to say it,
but I know it's true.
Tonight I was weak,
and you were stronger.
You knocked me off my feet.
Why did my heart lose?
Well it doesn't matter,
cause now I have to choose.
Will I lose again?
Will I let you win?
Will I give you reign?
Or will I be strong?
Can I brush this off,
And write my own song?

More real than solid earth;
And to these death does not mean decay,
But only another birth"

Sometimes we have to pump a little iron and become stronger, and this poem embodies the stress of having too much wieght to bear. I love the way your thoguhts are the things I read, as if I am hearing the inside of your brain as it wonders what's going to happen next. It's an interesting style, and I really like it. :) You are most certainly going to become famous one day, especially if you continue to write like you did here :)
