    I'm a girl so I'm expected to cry. So I sit here and daydream, while everyone thinks I want to die: I wonder why roses get more attention than daffodils and daises, if I can start to call people by their middle names, and how lonely it looks to laugh at my own jokes. ...

    Your life is a lie. But it's ok, 'cause mine is too. And for every clerk that says good day, And the politicians that chant we want your way to the millions, I think we're in good company. For you see, both you and me: We lie. There are thousands of pinky swears broken, ...

    I’ve always been a story, hidden behind is cover. A library book so worn and torn that no ones seems to notice. To read my story. I’m tossed, and dropped, and thrown across the covers. I’ve been cried in to, sneezed in to, and had arguments screamed into. People read my story and stop halfw...

    Loud and clear played booming music, And I just sat and listened, To hearts beating in happiness. While mine was empty of all but doubt. But they tell me one day I’ll dance Again, “life goes on”, they say. “Something’s wrong with her,” they used to say, So I just turned up my...

    I am different. Yes, I know. My nose is crooked. my feet are to big, yet I'm quiet short. But I would run a mile to help you. I get good grades. I raise my hand in class. Does that make me a nerd? I like to be random, goof off, make someone laugh. But I won't hurt someone doing it. ...

    Which lasts longer: Hopes and dreams, Or success. "Which path leads to happiness?" This is what I wonder, As I'm told who to be, Pressured how to act, Explained to how to live. Will successs lead to regrets, to frowns, to tears, Or Will dreams result in reoccurring nightmares...

    A slower steady song Is played across the hills The winds play in symphony. Among trickling water barely heard But the birds still sound their horns and the coyotes sing to the moon. The tune reminding us somethings missing- That the world isn't whole And the sad song suddenly beats onc...

    The days where the sun shines the brightest- You know will be the worst. The days you stretch your hardest- Maybe you'll get hurt. So what are we suppossed to do? Wait for a cloudy day to hope? I really wish I could. But that's just not the way life works....

    Someone follows me. I just know: that behind my back they lurk. A criminal with the police on their side Using their knives on whoever passes by no one bothers to stop them but- If they killed me no one would care....

    I see a stranger across the street ragged stepping one foot carefully replacing the next Walking on his bare feet, Drifting along in solitude with something one could only describe with despair. And he slowly starts in to a puddle. His tired eyes just look high to the air, I cross to him: Una...

    In the middle of this circle I begin to become blind From my former ideas of perfection And dreams I had in mind. Ones that drove me near and far Of singing every note perfectly when I couldnt sing a bar Being the best there was. I had one day to prove this. Show those hopes and dreams ...

    In a circle the deathly word is muttered: Dare. Silence. Move on. Next victim. Strike from the heart, let it sink in ones soul Slowly eliminating player by player Until no one is left....

    Still. Silent. Watching as the world goes bye, Waiting from the sidelines as, The birds stop flying south and suddenly turn east. The ballerinas pause mid leap: Afraid to fall. The full inventors mind stops producing ideas. The caring teacher suddenly cares only of himself. The same blank...

    Tick, tock. Tick, tock. Life's wasting, crumbling away in to a thin nothingness. Tick. The harsh reality, Tock. Is that one day no one will remember. Tick, tock. That fight you had with your best friend? That c you got in science? The cold you had last week? All ancient history....

    Here is the story of the known. The ones we always call “they”. Always they’re mentioned Always they’re questioned. We always ask, “I don’t know.” We always wonder, “I don’t know”. There is nothing more. No questions, no answers. Only the thoughts from the past Only the ...

    I wondered as a child Why the earth was round, Why the birds could sing, If I was safe and sound. I wonder now, in my current state If I should go back to that world. Where bad things happened in movies, Where people didn’t hate. A world filled with pure childhood joy. When my best f...

    It was so easy when we were young. Not worrying about losing weight, Or how our heartbreaks stung Each day a new adventure, Better than the last. Filled to the top with excitement. Now worrying bout tomorrow. For tomorrow holds even more: more adventures more excitement more thrill. Oh how ...

    Nameless: each one hopeless. Coldly whispering: “To tall, to short. To fat, to skinny. To pale, to flushed.” So steady yet so rushed. Each the same, but still so different. Alone, yet you know judging eyes are watching, pressuring. Disappointed in themselves, disgusting. Rethinking their status,...

    There will always be a girl whom you know, But try to ignore, Because everyone thinks she's a faux. But underneath the makeup and perfectly straightened hair, lies a girl who is misunderstood beyond everyone’s compare. At home it all changes to what it really is. The makeup come...
