    How easy life would be If I could just take all those pills Pop one or two Or five or ten And write my living will I’d fly through outer space I’d ride a unicorn I’d count to three And make my wish And wait to be reborn How much sorrow can one take Until they learn to appreciate...

    You’re weeding out the worst of me Every inch exploding greed I lock myself away from you to hide from all your need You wrap your fear around me so I never see the light A self-destructive method to demean my human plight I find myself positioned underneath your solid hold I lower myself ...

    An opportunity like this you cannot neglect Fly under the radar, no one will suspect That under that shirt you've got something to hide Be it from anger, or be it from pride   Amidst the group you wear "normal" so well Who would imagine the hot steaming hell You've kept p...

    An endeavor I have yet to pass with anxious scars yearning to tear Crazed, am I, among brothers who suffer diligently for their purpose A crisp edge on which we walk separates us from society Cold, forbidden, untouched A crying child in each of us who wanders blankly about a fallow heart I wish...

    Is there a death we celebrate more extravagantly than the passing of a devious thought? Could It’s eyes have plead more deeply? Could It’s lips have been drier? Could It’s smile have been more profound? Can any presence be forgotten so kindly, so weak an image that it is drawn out of our min...

    A life has such an effect on one I contemplate on how it can With whiskers like little laces undone A pitter-patter to places unrun Have such an enormous impact on man For a soul so slight as to fit in my hand A watchful eye beneath the brush Clenched between the left and right How easy it...

    We are all craving a spark A dim speck of light Whatever it may be To tell us what’s right But nothing ever comes We sit day after day Waiting and waiting Slowly fading to gray And one day we wake up Know it doesn’t exist And we waste all this time And near end you are pissed B...

    One Father One whose voice rose above One whose purpose was to love One whose head, above the clouds One who silenced all the crowds One who lived, never to cease One who brought much more than peace One who spoke, but not with power One who’s brave, no need to cower One who achieved far ...
