If I had known six years ago, the things I know today,
I'd have done things differently; avoided all the pain.
Id go fishing with my papa, more often than I did,
I'd say "I love you" a thousand times ...
It ain’t like in the movies
It ain’t like on TV
It don’t take no hour
To get everything I need
Now I wish it was that easy
So simple it would be If everything I wanted Would all just come to me
Love is a shadow.
Sylvia Plath told me this the other day.
Her voice barely a whisper,
Cold hands intertwined
As I close my eyes,
I can smell the carbon monoxide,
My tongue finding it bittersweet.
Lord, can you hear me, because I need to talk to you.
As I stand here before this mirror looking at the woman staring back at me.
I can’t help, but to wonder does the world really see who I am?

Singled out With no where to go. Your friends are all drunk
As they put on a show,
And you stand there with a drink
And your broken heart. Life chews you up
And it spits you back out,
Is all this pain...
Light in the Sky
Have you ever seen the world at night when the stars light up the sky
When all the lights from earth are off and the sun begins to die
Have you ever seen a child’s smile when he or sh...
how can a bullet turn into a man?
flying on the wings of your heels
shouting, "catch me if you can!"
piercing the air like a heart
gripping your chest
from the inside
pushing your l...
Survivor. One who survives. To exist in spite of adversity. Misfortune. Struggle. The troubles I have faced are not unlike those of others. However, they are underived and authentic enough to call my ...
To stand in one place
For reason neither know
Not dealing with fear
How do you remember day
To precious lesson in pages
The past floating behind you
Holding memories to release
How do you get through
We live in this world. With these people. There are many things that people suffer in this world. Many of these things are suffered by multiple people. You are not alone. We are taught many things gro...
A ship sets its journey by following course of stars,
Not by the lights of every passing ship,
We all start our journey of life with a planned destination,
But only few reach their desired destination...

questions lead to the truth
if not, we live in lies
toy horses in the shadow of Seabiscuit we could never outrun that horse

to the poets thoughts;
from the farmers fields,
