    There I sat perched upon that fine log. Waiting with lustful eyes directed at the attention-saturated children. They knew not of my sorrows, my longing, my hunger. They stood there watching me with eyes that voiced the words of my father. "You're not good enough," they pleaded. &...

    Just keep on runnin' and runnin' Cause they'll keep on gunnin' and gunnin'. It's a world gone mad; It's on the brink of redefining bad. You fell into this set, No, no, you didn't ask for it. But every challenge you've met Left you groveling in de...

    I am strong, Stronger than I thought. I’m standing aside from your wrong. I will not let my mind be bought. There’s no price for this soul. It is mine and quite honestly, you’re rather dull. I am saying no. No to waiting. No to reaping what you yourself sow. I’m done debating. My...

    I cannot reach you past this looming moore. To think that our argument led to this, which it bore. My outstretched hand is constantly waiting, But you just just stare at me, unwavering, debating. Take this hand and let me lead you to the light. Take me into your confidence so we can all be in...

    So maybe you can see it. Maybe you can’t. It’s not really up to me, And quite honestly, I don’t think I can explain these things. Just don’t lose sight of what is there. Don’t choose what you want to see in bits. You have a way of missing the bigger picture. How you do it, I reall...

    I’ll give it my all. I swear I will. I won’t drop your pretty crystal ball. Why, there’s too much to spill. I’ll make you proud. This will be yours; this golden prize. I will scream and I’ll shout; I’ll be very loud. Hopefully I’ll be all the more wise. It’s right before ...

    Catching the flames, Is a dangerous game. Burns upon burns, There is no where to turn. They warned you about the fire, They warned you to lose this fascination with the pyre. But curiosity nags at you. It begs you to do, Do away with the old name, So you can get ready for the flame. Do...

    I don’t want to be the last one to arrive, Not when I’m the butterfly within this beehive. They like to say keep the outsiders out, And the insiders all about. They keep their hive on a first name basis, But when you’re a butterfly there can be no stasis. In this world we have our bees. ...

    The watchmen stalk us with their eyes, They stare and they stare, And scream the fie of all fies. The watchmen made their own justice, Was it correctly aligned? Probably not; it was far from bliss. Rorschach defied the norms, And followed justice to its core. Maybe people will one day learn ...

    I rejoice in reassurance, I bathe in the everlasting light. I am what I am, Nothing more and nothing less. I ask for more than I can take, And for that I am at a fault. I beg for understanding, But understand none of what is set before me. Wisdom escapes me at times, And at others I fee...

    She’s in pain, And I can’t physically help her. She’s stuck in this pouring rain, But I can’t so much as shield her. I can see her crying all alone, She can’t seem to stop. You can hear her crushing sadness in her tone. And I can see her braving the storm on the mountain top. I...

    This wasn’t the first time I saw it, But it hit me harder than ever. I cried six to seven times, I do admit. It’s impact on me will stay forever. He didn’t see any of it coming, But how was he to have seen the signs? It was all so becoming… But in the end he saw the...

    Listen to anyone and everyone around, Don’t sit back and watch them slowly fall down. They have a voice raging on inside of them, And it’s up to you to see them for who they really are; a precious gem. They are silently screaming for us to hear, But we just stand here and let them disappear...

    The times are pressing up against us, I don’t know what we will do, But hey just look at the plus– “The plus side?” Yes, it’s all that we can do. Negativity sinks into you deeply. You look at the world rather sleepily. Look at the good that it can hold, Look at how fast you fell ...

    It’s in my line of vision, I can take a shot. I swear I can. I’ll do exactly as you taught. I will follow it entirely on the plan. Just tell me I have the precision, And it’s all as good as done. I’ll hit the target in one fluid move. I only need one chance; just one. I swear I won...

    He shot out innocence with a cascade of unnecessary bullets and fire. But he didn’t have to, No, he didn’t have to. He could have simply retired! Oh, no, but he couldn’t have done that. No, the crowd would have looked down upon him more and just spat. Spat in disgust, Spat because they ...

    I can feel it all around. It’s presence fills me with awe. Awe in something that makes me found. Awe in something to which I am bound. I can sense it in every breath I take. It feels me with joy of an allusive character. In it I am spiraling down in an infinite lake. A lake of happiness tha...

    Inspiration came at me unseen, I felt it surge within my very skin. It crawled, It trembled, It came down upon me in a sharp sudden pin. Down to the floor, I did fall. If only I was somewhat keen… Inspiration gave me a panic attack today. And now I’m trying to follow in suit, As though ...

    Standing up in front of the crowd… It’s terrifying to think about. Everyone expects to be ‘wowed’ But I am the one living in doubt. I could easily mess up, And make a fool of myself up there. It’s as if my mother is gone and I’m just a frightened pup. I didn’t ask for this dar...

    He told me he didn’t see a light at the end of his tunnel, So I was there to lead him to the tunnel. I wanted him to see the same path, To avoid the chance of wrath. I wanted to help him find his way, Because his life was full of dismay. I led and I led, And we walked in silent – staine...

    Daisies being out the best in man, As petals draw out their demise. Everyone likes to think that they can, But is that really wise? We should all look up to something bigger than ourselves; Something with a deeper meaning. A power surges through us all, It entirely depends on whether you answ...

    We will slip away into the light, You and me, Together, we will reach such great heights. We will hide away behind the sunshine, Me and you, It’ll all work out, together, just fine. The night escapes us two. Daylight is dawning. We will find ourselves becoming anew. We’ll shun our fac...

    This time is one of our last. You say you wanna go out with a “blast,” But I’m tired of all these childish games. Please make up your mind. Do you wish to be here with me? If not, then I’ll politely ask you to forever leave. This door is closing and I plan to nail it shut. Then I’ll...

    If you close your eyes tight enough, I’m sure you can see infinity. It’s bound to contain all sorts of stuff, But I can’t say if it could hold your lack of divinity....

    The hummingbird called to me. It perched upon a willow tree, And stared down at my eyes to see, To see if I was truly awake. And it was saddened to see that my droopy eyes were no sooner asleep. I tried and I tried, To come alive for its own sake. But my attempt was futile. If only it waited...
