Favorite Quote:
"Normality Does Not Exist" ~ Me


Burnt by arson

The frame will fall down

Burnt from anger

The memories vanished again

I have been built on charred soil

Countless times

Ive been burnt one last time 

And im actually done this time

 

Lady bird oh lady bird

Fly home

Your heart and family

All gone

How can such a pretty bird 

Rebuild her home?

Oh lady bird oh lady bird

Fly to your now destined home

 

My wings are singed 

And smell like smoke 

Ive been shot down by a poison arrow 

A ghost lives in that place 

That once called home 

No children will sing today 

As the birds flown home

 

Lady bird oh lady bird 

Fly home

Your heart and family

All gone

How can such a pretty bird

Rebuild her home?

Oh lady bird oh lady bird

Fly to your now destined home

 

But afar from this pity cry

The pheonix will rise 

And she shall spread her wings and begin to fly

And this will not be the obituary of a soul like mine

Because i have been shot down a thousand times 

And I know that I will be shot down many more times 

So i will never be hurt from any arrows that fly 

Because you cant kill me 

And I will still be alive

But I will gain more fire.


The author's comments:

This poem was based off of the mother goose rhyme "Lady bird" where someone loses everything to a fire exept for her little Anne. I then compared it losing friendships in life, and in life (especially in high school) you will lose friends indefintiely. And no matter how harsh it is, or how hurtful it is; Your'e always stronger and better off in the end.
