"I tell you that there are terrible temptations that it requires strength, strength and courage, to yeild to."- Oscar Wilde, An Ideal Husband.


Look behind the smile,
look behind the lies,
Look behind the perfect picture,
And see the real disguise.

You're so hedged with lies,
you're so hedged with pain.
You are suffering slowly
In their disdain.

But if you cry once more,
you may just lose.
So let me just say,
you have to live this ruse.

No more excuses,
Their tired of your pain.
Its sick to see you lose this game.
So the bigger picture is clear,
The bigger picture is at stake,
So take this chance now
and make it your break.

You want to succeed in life,
you want to make a name,
But kid theirs a lot of hurt in the world today.
Forget the pretty ideals,
forget the pretty flames.
You know the fires gonna burn,
And make you ash today.

Again, this is something I wrote a very long time ago that noone around me really liked. But I do.

" **** " --I gave you more stars than I probably should have, considering the poor spelling and glaring grammatical errors, but I admire your speaker's message. It's relatable on many levels. It just needs some work. Don't be hard on yourself, though--just continue to develop your potential! ;)

I didn't really like this. Needs some work.

Thats a huge huge compliment! Thank you! I'm glad that it gets you. For me there really is nothing greater than when you read something and feel that you get what that person feels because you've felt it
