    The very breath I breathe is no longer mine, I lost that “privilege” long ago, Everything I am, belongs to Jesus, I am His from head to toe. After all, I’m only human, Made from the ground on which He stood, So who am I, to claim myself? And how would that do any good? Some would say...

    Things I Believe in: 1. Most importantly, God. 2. Making Wishes. 3. Miracles. 4. Happy Endings. 5. Karma. 6. Love. 7. Luck. 8. The power of words. 9. Friendship. 10. Family. And no matter what the world may say, they can never take my belief away....

    Mama said I was 3, going on 30, Daddy said I was just an old soul, The whole wide world was staring at me, anxiously waiting, to swallow me whole. I didn’t much care, for being a kid, I wanted to grow up right away, Wanted to get a job in the city, and a house of my own, the world expected...

    She crumbles into nothing, she trembles and she shakes, she’s discovering very quickly, How the unbreakable breaks. The tears fall cold and quickly, Her stomach is in knots. With a million memories and miseries to occupy her thoughts. She hangs onto the past so tight, that her hands near...

    I’m about to turn 16 Lord, and I’m so amazed, at all the wondrous things you’ve done for me. You sent your son to be captured and crucified, Just to let the sinners free. And even though I’m so unworthy Lord, you’ve promised to be there forever. And I can’t compare to you in any wa...

    The worst thing about you, Is that everything about you, is absolutely wonderful, in every single way. And the reason I hate you, Well it’s because I love you, And I just can’t love you, With you loving her. You see, I’ve known you longer, And I love you more, And I’ll keep on lovi...

    I read a book once, where a certain line really spoke to me... It said, “Once you figure out who you are, you’re free to truly be yourself, but in another sense you’re trapped, because you know who you really are, and therefore you can’t be anyone else.” I guess I’ve kinda always felt ...

    Oh, yes, I’m going there, to that dreaded complex question. I don’t think that there is a single, cookie-cutter, one-size-fits-all meaning of life that goes for everyone. It’s going to be different for each person. Some people live life for other people, while some people will live for them...

    An unhinged amazement, A secretless smile, A sweet little life, For a sweet little while. Unbridled spirit, a wide open mind, Able to believe, in all the magic she finds. With a beautiful grin, ready to gobble life up, totally unaware, of a world so corrupt. I want to tell her, to ne...

    Can you hear that? Calling in the night? A desperate call to battle, But you're not prepared to fight. What do they expect? There was no warning, after all. But that little voice inside you, Will make you heed the call. Despite your fear you don your armor, And retrieve your silver swor...

    A whisper, just a whisper, It should be barely heard above the crowd, A whisper, am I crazy? Or was that whisper awfully loud? I know that there are those who’d say, Paranoia is to blame, But I just know that little whisper, Oh so gently spoke my name. I recognize that voice, That floati...

    Who said we had to be prisoners? And why the h*** did we agree? To stay locked up in a prison cell, giving up our right to be free? Let's break the chains that bind us, Let's put this past behind us, Let us leave this sheltered world! Our opressors, our captors, let us hang them f...

    I keep my heart, like I keep my diary... hidden somewhere you can’t find, and kept under lock and key. It’s not that I don’t trust you, I just don’t trust a single soul. No matter the circumstances, I can’t let myself give up control. Even if I love you, and know you’ll always...

    Why should I have to fake a smile, just to keep you from feeling uncomfortable? And for once can I just break down and cry, instead of acting unbreakable? The lumps in my throat are getting harder to swallow, these tears are getting harder to hide, and with these lumps in my throat, I just don...

    My eyes glance around the room. They stop where they always do. Falling upon the handsome sight, The glorious vision of you. Your hair falls perfectly across your forehead, stopping just before your brow. I contemplate your appeal, And all I can think is wow. Your voice stands out among the ...

    You smooth your crisp white shirt, And flatten down your collar. You put on a brave face, Although your heart feels hollow. Your brown eyes sparkle, Not with joy, but instead with tears. Your firmly planted frown, Conceals your inner fears. You’ve never let anyone come, Close enough to d...

    It hurts, knowing you're not mine. What hurts worse, is knowing you feel fine. I forgive, you forget. I reminisce, you regret. Why am I always on the sad side of things? Why do I get the bad love brings? Love's a game...I'm considering quitting. But I hate being alone, it'...

    I know I can tell you constantly, And you won’t understand, You are beautiful, You’re wonderful, you’re grand. I’m not friends with you for some random reason, I truly see how great you are. And though you don’t agree, I see that you’re a star. You can write and you can dance, Y...

    Are we talking “I love cake.”? Or whispering “I love you.”? How about “I love my mother.”? Or, “I love the color blue.”? Are we falling in love? Being in love? Or loving from afar? Like a woman may love diamonds, Or a man may love his car? When asking about love, Let me giv...

    I've written about love, I've written about hate, I've written about friends, and boys I want to date. But Daddy, I've never written about you. And that's because I never found words that would do. Thanks for each good morning, thanks for each good night, they mean...

    The ratio of love to hate, Is not the most polite. The contrast between the two, Like that of day and night. We whisper our endearments; We shout our criticisms. Can’t you see that Love is losing, and Anger’s winning. The numbering masses of kind hearted gentleman, Like a starving creat...

    The night wind loved to whisper, and such secrets it did tell, and then there came the rain, which sparkled as it fell. The thunder with it's power, rumbled through the sky, the lightning glittered down, and it did electrify. The stars danced among the chaos, a waltz, a samba, a ballet...

    Nothing can exemplify, Nor can any words express, How much I care about you, Though it shames me to confess. I giggle and I blush, Like I'm on some kind of drug, I dream about your kiss, and imagine every hug, I miss you when you're gone, even if only for a little while. Everyt...

    Now, your love to me is a mirage. Something I saw, when I was not in my right mind. And I longed for it, oh a longing that lingered, lulling me lusciously until, I convinced myself, it was everything, the only thing, and nothing, all at once. And I walked on this journey, the first step, the nex...
