    When I was just a child I would stare up at the sky And pray to this big God that one day I would learn to fly I would tape together feathers; I would glue them to my arms And deep inside I knew this would never cause me harm The wishing and the hoping and the dreaming late at night Just anti...

    I just want to lie down on my bed Covered in sheets and promises And the words you spoke to me so sweetly Will be woven in the threads I will feel your arms wrap around me And the essence of your love will bleed in And your clothes will lie next to my doorstep The cold won't find where we'v...

    I'll bite my lips, I'll hold my tongue I don't want to make it seem like you've won I'll dry my tears, I'll wipe the lines Like you did for me, a hundred times But I don't want you to know how much it hurts When you couldn't come to face to face to speak those words "I don't want to go on, ...

    We settle for the people who make us feel alright And it's the best we've got so we hold onto them tight And I say I love him every night We settle into comfort in order to feel close But I've started making stretch marks; you can see them past my clothes And the sad thing is he knows This ...

    I think it's sad young girls know that it's easier and safer to give a guy a fake number than turn him down. I think it's sad that I have grown up in the mindset that if I'm walking alone near a group of males or even a single male I should pretend to be on the phone in order to a...

    When I was a few months old, I was baptized. At eight I had my first communion. At fourteen I made my confirmation and was initiated as a member of my church. About every three weeks I attend church to please my parents but I had never thought about the possibility that they were wrong. The more I t...

    Somehow it's all a little clearer now without the rose colored glasses of societal acceptance. It's true; we all don't fit together like puzzle pieces or stacking blocks. We all aren't meant to get along, fall in love and make a living out of providing for a family. Maybe there a...

    It seems less intimidating to write in a smaller book and yet all the more terrifying; to fill the pages with meaning, substance, bravado, wisdom. It's scary to know how many pages and lines and spaces you have left. And what if someone reads them? Will they find humor in the same things you...

    I can hear the voices trembling And I see the hands they shake Open to the fifteenth verse And read upon the alter And she says "please be with him He didn't know any better He was raised by my working hands And we fought against the weather But it came down like a hard rain ...

    I don't think you ever said you love me I don't think I've heard those words before Come to think of it it's kind of funny How those words broke me when you locked the door I'd whisper those words to my pillows My breath would fog on the glass of my windows But you n...

    Have you ever noticed how thick our skin is? It holds everything together, the flesh the fluid the bone The heap of rotting emotions and tears that have not yet fallen The promises we never intend to keep, to others or to ourselves The words we hear inflicted on our ears by force of entry And y...

    Babe, don't cry It is alright sometimes if you need someone There is no shame or fear I've been there, I'm right here There is no shame in needing someone Just to say it's alright You have to reach dawn by breaking light There is no one I'd rather hold Take me as I...

    She's watched the clouds roll in all day They stay in the sky but it won't rain She sits in the corner of her desk She faces away from everybody else Never was one for making a scene Shy and beautiful, just turned fifteen Don't walk away, you see what they do Don't be the ...

    I don't need to sleep in silk Or wrap myself in crystal I don't need to eat from china And feast myself on lamb I don't need to walk on wool I can keep warm by the fire I don't need to feel ignorant Or kept outside the room I can know I can handle this by your sid...

    You were never good for me. Maybe I should have been a little smarter A little more aware of what was happening That I, slowly, was becoming something I had never intended myself to be: Weak. Weak in the mind, in the heart In my morals, what I knew was wrong Didn't feel wrong anymore ...

    Tell me the story of efflorescence How the moon danced with the stars Everything will bloom in the shadow of Rays of sunshine as he sighed upon the earth And how the sun loved the moon so much He died every night to let her breathe How the moon stayed in the shadows Of his greatness jus...

    My feet remain cold, they try find yours Under sheets on your bed As the rain from the storm Wakes you from your dreams You smile at me, sleep in your eyes I touch the lines on the side of your lips Kiss me now, kiss me now With the light from the lightening shining through the windows Al...

    If angels breathe, you are their sigh Whispering gently in the wind Flowered lace; you are woven into the threads Tying me together, lacing up the corners of my lips Mountains cannot imprison you You are immortalized in the fine silk Covered in dust, tucked firmly into the corners of your be...

    They say "Go look to the sky" Covered in milky white glow from the moon Up there is every soul to be born Up there is every soul that was ever taken Looking down upon those Who did not want to part But forever they will live and thrive Thrive and be born again Into their favorite...

    You tore down my walls, built up a castle A fortress of all that you are It's the color of roses, and strong as a mountain It's a thousand and ten feet tall Build me up I'm strong enough Tear me down but I'll get up Tell me what I want to hear Light the spark but kill t...

    In the past, European culture has held superiority to other cultural groups. Schools today have adopted a curriculum based upon classic literature which is written mainly by white, European authors. These books, called “great books”, have a certain familiarity with both students and teachers ali...

    I know that maybe I haven’t been completely truthful in the past, but then again who is? But now I really need to say something in complete honesty, not just to make you feel good about yourself…no, that’s mommy’s job. I honestly believe that every girl is pretty. Sure, you may not think so,...

    There’s nine types of living if you wanna count There’s the kind you live and just scream and shout And you cry all night when the word gets out Cause you’re too scared to live but not too scared to doubt There’s the kind when you run in the middle of the night Away from your fears, a...

    You’re like a thousand stars in the sky Pointing out every light Shining so bright that I Am I blinded by your smile Just hold me for me close For a little while Just long enough for you To realize That I’m not what you need And I trip over everyone I meet Swinging so close to the k...
