    Hands tied behind his back Face divided by the bars It smells deeply of garbage And the lights are dim Everything is dark Just like his skin A white man comes by Face a straight line In the dark i see no difference Between daddy and this man But when i ask momma why Why we are thought of a...

    Sitting in that small room The fragrances filling my head The tears streaming down my face Talking about my experiences Talking about how I feel The lights dimmed down low I feel like I’m locked up Being questioned for a crime Just me and them That’s all there is It’s like I’m in ...

    The world has opened up to me Suddenly I can see it all The good and the bad The truth and the lies All the things that decipher life Suddenly are sitting right in front of me The next years of my life The ones I have passed All of the memories The good and the bad All of it is suddenly ...

    The smell of freshly mown grass Sweeps throughout the air And the sound of the wind blowing Goes right through your hair All is peaceful All is calm Until finally its game time The music blasts The teams appear Warm ups begin The crowds fill in The whistle blows The clock begins The pla...

    It wasn’t planned It wasn’t true Until I looked up to the sky Then suddenly I knew You were gone Into the clouds and the blue skies The color of your hair faded into the sun And your eyes into the sky Your beauty became that of natures And suddenly you were gone It wasn’t planned ...

    Leaning back against the fence Looking at the sunset in the distance Standing with your arms around me Could it be true, please let it be Been waiting for the moment to call you mine Been waiting for the moment to be first in line Because when you come around My feet lift off the ground I f...

    So many songs have been sung So many words have been written To describe a love so deep Or a loss so tragic It seems every word has been used Every feeling has been described But still each and every day I try To write down the pain on paper Let it flow out like the ink of my pen And feel t...

    Once upon a time I knew a spirit so free She led a life normal as can be With imperfections, happiness, and grief Her life was as simple as you and me She lit up the room with her smile And heads would turn at her laughter She was loved as everyone should be But she made her mistakes too As ...

    To some it may be an old wooden house Built many years ago And that little swing set in the trees Could just be some old dirty toys abandoned in the woods And that bird feeder in the yard Could just be an old fashioned piece of wood But to me it’s so much more It is my home away from home ...

    I have a memory so sweet One of me with you It was captured by a camera So many years ago We were sitting side by side With smiles so wide I was so young, so unaware It was Christmas time And so there was joy in my eyes It is a picture of years past A day I will never live again For the...

    The first day of summer sure was a bummer With the wind blowing and no sun glowing The rain poured down with a soft pound Where is the fun without any sun? The first day of summer sure was a bummer It went by so slow with no place to go As i sat by the window and watched a crow Just wishing t...

    You gave it all away Your big heart and strong soul You gave it all away Your steady pace and young life It's as if you were tired of it Tired of being who you were Tired of being called a child So you walked away You saw an escape A dark and narrow lane That led you to a dead end An...

    They told me colors never faded That life could never be dull They told me love never dies That strength could push you through They told me it was worth it That nothing could ever stop me But now I'm sitting here Silence pouring over me Looking at a faded picture Of one I thought I k...

    School picture on my desk Fake smile across your face Perfect hair upon your head A moment from the past Just an image of years ago With eyes staring back at me No feeling of joy Or remembrance of the memory Just a school picture on my desk...

    Thoughts strangle me today I’m at a loss for words I can barely hear you now As you try to talk to me The past is cornering me With only walls ahead And memories behind So little time yet so far to go The future is sprinting ahead of me And I’m running out of breath My lungs on fire ...

    They are scared without a home They are alone without a family They are blind without an education They are silent without someone to talk to Those little children Lost and vulnerable Struggling to live Fighting to survive They sit around as their lives fly by Shivering without the warmth ...

    Hearts and hope shattered by the pain Only wishing that we could gain Some time to realign our thoughts To help us get through this cluttered time That seems to have more dark days than bright And more tears of grief than of joy The moments pass by as we sit all alone The belief in a better t...

    You were perfectly imperfect Just to say the least As you watched time drift on by All you wanted was to grow up A wish we all do make But the wind of years going by Must have blocked your ears Because I hate to think we didn’t shout I hate to think we didn’t fight And of course we put ...

    Where are you now that you are gone? Your face is in the pictures of the past But your words cannot be heard The moments by your side have ended And the future looks so empty Without you looking back I have lost you and my search has failed I only wish you could have been found Before God st...

    They always told me that every friendship lasts But now I realize that was just a joke Because so many people get so close Only to stab you in the back And so many people can act so well You believe it when they say you are the best of friends And so many people can sneak their way in and out ...

    I feel like each day I lose sight of you And all you used to be The friendship we used to have Seems to slowly fade away Those crazy memories we used to treasure Seem to be what you want to forget And I wish I could believe that this is just a phase But you keep on changing And I miss the ...

    I walked away, I turned my back And never took the chance to look back I lived my life for the next seven months Until my first true tear fell from my face And the news stuck out in my thoughts It shaped the rest of my summer and on Each day I lived my life Each day I shed a tear Each day I ...

    The words that broke my heart The truth that shocked my thoughts The end that brought the tears The death that ended the lies I felt betrayed yet protected As they covered all of the secrets With a warm blanket of happiness The memories are now all I have And the pictures are the only way f...

    Do you hear those sighs coming from the corner of the room They are mine They are my whispers to the world My words that no one comprehends My actions that so many pay no heed to My feelings of despair that seem indiscernible They are my own private thoughts The noises that escape from withi...

    Protect me from above And know I think of you Know these tears are my love for you Know these days pass slower Now I see I barely knew you But from what I saw you were perfect So beautiful and sweet You smiled and you laughed You sat beside me each holiday A few times each year I saw your f...
