We've reached our end, you and I. But it's okay, at the end of this is paradise. Where the people are happy, and you get to smile, but before you cross over, why don't we sit for awhile.
People say that words carry weight And we understand it's true That words can be so heavy Even when they're so few It's their emotional pounds  That weigh you down That make you afraid
Their are simply no words to follow my actions towards you.. Just because people bicker and stare, it doesn't mean it's always true... The perception of our relationship status..

PRELUDE: Black Out Poem (Warm Up) A kiss He was waiting for. He wanted more of a girl Who was warm and generous with her praise.

A normal day Of a happy life And then in an instant It's like you've been stabbed with a knife You see everything you love Ripped to shreads  There is life all around you
The days can be long The afternoons, longer I can forget who I am sometimes And at times, the doubts can get stronger  But your name on my screen And your voice on the phone Are enough to reel me back in This, I'll always know  You remind me I'm s

What is that sound you hear? It is the sound of mothers weeping, Fathers dying, Children starving.  
Broken glass, tears shed. Mom stands outside to hang her head, In grief. There is no love left in these streets. Two blocks over gunshots ring out.
Does love really last forever? I mean we have that sense of love you know deep down inside to where we know we really love this person but does love last forever? I mean yes it can last for years and years but how do you know you love someone?
I pledge allegiance To the left Stand for the oppressed Bleed blue from my chest.   I pledge allegiance  to the right Disguised as hate But for freedom I fight.

I just can’t seem to get it right, I put it off till I had time But now I’m feeling overwhelmed And more than that I’m scared as hell, Scared that things are crashing down Lonely far from all I know
He was an angel in disguise that pretended to love and care for me When the truth is he doesn't know to be a loving and caring man for me
Rain is falling but not hard enough The wind is blowing but far too much The sun doesn't shine but for a touch People are calling but just to bluff The sirens are blaring but the sound is a hush
from a wilted whisper to a unyielding yell you've forced my hand i won't back down anymore.
Stay Gold You never know what the future holds, with our stories yet untold, our beautiful mind can't be sold, our words will be forever spoken forget the background noise, focus you are not broken. Show them you are strong,
Dad, These are the days where I, With special clarity, With attentive mind Give heed to the cavern in my heart. These are the days where I wonder And I miss your smile. The days I remember.
Does God Care?...  
I believe that leaves grow on the strength of their trees So that one day they leave and reach for new feats And these leaves that grow too fast, soon break free And roam the pastures of uncommon things
Thanks For The Epiphany's You left me traumaitized,But now I'm desensitized,When I mesmerize,About the feelings inside.And I don't wanna feel,Something that's not real,When I can't even begin to heal.Why can't I be everything you
In the beginning, I felt like dying Everyday was the same filled with my constant sighing I could not bring forgiveness to myself I am alone   I settled for someone who only brought me stress
Drifting up north on a Friday evening, with my ears plugged to a silent music. The driver strives to better his earnings by helping stranded people off the sidewalk pavings
  My feet may be a bit long and I may not have a thigh gap, but that doesn't mean that my legs aren't smokin' hot   I may have love handles and a muffin top, but these curves are more than your love can handle  
be yourselfbe a kidlike I didbe your own personbut did I mentionthese sidelinesguidelinesto abide by
Such elegant creatures which live in the seas Who float as if a feather fell gracefully The creatures that come in many different colors The ones that differ from one another  
I wish to be free Like the birds and bees Who fly and land wherever They please.   I wish to be free Like the tree Who will always stand tall and sturdy And upright beside me.

A crisp fall morning. Waking up just before the sun rises. Watching the steam of a freshly brewed cup of coffee billow through the air. The scent of a freshly lit candle fills your lungs, seeing it's flicker from afar.
poetry is like a tree - if you took all the metaphors and gave them to me i’d have them strung up on the clothesline by half a quarter to 3.  
One day, behind the summer leaves, spellbound, I watched the heavens bleed. The sky was fainting, whitening, and feeble, yet it soaked the trees. A darling little groan of pain 
 I was depressed at a young age, Becoming a new person every day, Never crying, emotions looking for a way out. It came to me three quarters into sixth grade. I paused from running away to stare at a golden page.
Haven’t seen the world yet, but I don’t need an airplane to teach me empathy.  Befriended a drug dealer, became friends with my enemies.  
Madness, darling, madness is what I feel   Genuine like stars before the moon so surreal Dangerous like chaos locked within then set free   My loved ones they sing and swing and dream
Ive been suffering this disconnect Past and present shuffling in my head It has to be said These days I know no wrong Cause its been too lonely of a song To have sung along I hate how my voice trembles

They walk and talk like they really know mebut I'm not just some random bodyI don't need them to dictate what I can and cannot do  
In the abyss a crevice of black I curl my neck ready to attack With inked rapiers in my claws I slash and stab hoping for renewal   Half awake my sore back sprouts

Over the clouds, radience I see; Under the radience, a nest; Over the nest, a fire set on the tree; Under the tree, a hunterat his best; Over the hunter, a need to flee; Under the fear, the end of his quest.
There is a swarm of the expressionless monotonies which resound off the bleeding walls and pierce through Your soul writes all it wishes to convey on these beaten, chipped, and tattered walls
Greatest gift for mankind? The relief from a hard time; I say this with no lie. Laughter over anger makes everything fine Because I know it will be in due time. Knowing what’s best with best intention.
I would take the love that you saw When Flynn looked at Rapunzel When you saw pure love and passion for this girl that he just met a day or two before
Alone and stranded on a bare-naked island, no food, no water, no warm toasty bed. The sunlight glares off the endless sea-- my eyes and reality have not yet met.   I watch the first sunrise, cursing my luck.
Before I even knew how to say hi I, Was outcasted, ostracized, denied Kicked for being different, spitted at for daring to be born What was I supposed to do, when even adults sworn
This is to those souls who turn penciled prose once froze poetically Into hearts spoke phonetically Because Respectively Some words are too great To be caged upon a page. So Here's to
Many people, internationally, are interconnected through this web of interaction. This tool has the power to topple over rulers and let voices be heard.

The rain poors slowly, but consistantly, creating the perfect, wet tambourine. The boy in his sleep snores melodically. The basketball hitting the ground creates the perfect rhythm,

Scared. Alone, There's no one around. All I see are trees sand and the loud ocean waves crashing down.   You should be here with me. But you never seemed to care.

I’m sick of it, The blasted hordes like dried-out gourds Screaming, cawing for more water. Feed the flesh, delight the eyes Give us our shining fantasy. With flippancy Strip down past all the layers of

She's the love That I had hoped for The dream I had chased She's the wish I thought would never come true I know that I am blessed To have someone like her.

Puffer fish- imitates borrowing a student loan. Deadly, life changing, bodies petrified. It awaits humbly, slowly; innocent upon first glance. Like the holy lizard it ripples through the sea.
Dear Mother, There's this feeling I get when I'm in your embrace. Dear Mother, it's a feeling, like the glow shown on your face. Dear Mother, what is it called when you put me first, always above
Gina Napolitano Cotton   Your crosses are covered in blood. Not the blood of Christ, But the blood that oozes from brown skin.
The sun can shine it's brightest The wind can blow it's hardest But never had my heart felt this deepest To ever felt this hatred Do you ever want to know my wish? As I sat by the lake to see the fish
What if reality is a fallacy, Perpetuated by affliction? Disillusionment just a deterrent For positive transition?   When all is lost, picking up
Dear father who art I heaven God keeps sending letters.I'm still trying to read last weeks stack.He either sends me some clarity,Or i'll think does He have it out for me? Father,What should have I done when I lost my friend?What are you teaching m
There are many scents I take in when I breathe,  But I can't live without the one left behind when you leave. It's hard to describe the feelings I get. I just know I'm brought back to the day that we met.
I live in the eyes of others but they do not see the dark hole I have stumbled into. No one helps me from falling but one; my angel she guides me to the light so I may escape the darkness.
Tonight I wish I was walking on cobbled stone.  Because maybe if I was I would be able to drown the constant sex between the leaves and the wind. I would be able to subdue their moans and sighs. But I'm not, I'm here.
I'm trapped on this island,  theres nothing but silence.  If I had one thing with me, What would it be?   I could choose my phone or a tree,  but how would that benefit me?
All I need? A simple question indeed. Take a look in the mirror, and there you will see The one thing in life that means the most to me
As I am surrounded by the forest tress, nature's wind blows below my feet. I hug myself as I quiver trying to stay warm. The air is crisp and my lips are cracked. Lost within myself I search for a way out.
Let the sun rise up And the earth fade away Every soul cry out Open up heavens gate    We are gathered here Under your name Do away with fear And seek his face  
I wonder what beauty really is, I thought it is someone who you’ll miss Like in the whole, a missing piece, How great you are to tame the beast!
If only more teachers made learning fun.  A single teacher can make you turn.  More students their study they would yearn.  Make learning an opportunity, not a chore. Maybe your students will stop being whores. 
If only more teachers made learning fun.  A single teacher and make you turn.  More students their study they would yearn.  Make learning an opportunity, not a chore. Maybe your students will stop being whores.

Einstein may have once said"Everyone's a genius.But if you judge a fish byIt's ability to climb a tree,It will live its whole lifeBeleiving that it's stupid." There's more truth than you think to that.

I lay here on my bed And try to think and think Just what exactly I should write With this pen filled with ink.
I am not you I am not he I will only be the best me, I can be
To be touched and crushed by something that I least expected it from. It came close to my heart, but killed my soul when it was done.
I'll fly away again High in the sky toward migration. As civilizations increase Our species continues to weep. The more land you conquer Forces more stress And Less flowers.
Who am I? A great question this is, the best way to know is to live what I've lived.  So with pen in hand, I'll write to you, the story of me in the best way that I can.

We're growing up But you pop up To point norms thrown up And none taken up.
What I want is just a dream To others, that is not what it seems I want better for myself I want love for the nation What I want is just a thought All of which have faught, For them to be released
Curvy, skinny, thin, or fat. What should I wear, should I eat that? Should I talk slower, should I walk faster Am I too talkative? Should I shut up?
Never been kissed, never been held, never been loved Never been missed
Who are you? And what can you do?
See the third eye inside the mind, through this world of deception
It's the flesh that makes us human The skin that makes us people Double edged sword used to cause upheaval Tactics implemented by a fallen angel Reason why for a mother life and death is so painful
UNBROKEN By Julissa Anaya You. Backstabbing, false, two-faced person, you. Compulsive, deceitful, self-indulgent human, you.

"HE IS THE POEM"
In every country there are hardships to be had. Diseases and disaters! There is no stopping that! America is my home and what a home it is. When nature seems our enemy we always know what to do.
Black is not derived from the word negro. Black was not on the fields, black was not in the home. Black is my stereotypical ego that I was given when others were put upon a throne.    
Not by occasion Nor location But by His crucifixion Death and resurrection Perfected He my salvation Gave He me His vision With full attention I grasped through revelation
Awe: an emotion variously combining dread, veneration, and wonder  
I woke up alarmed, the darkness asked to come in. "The devil lives inside of me" she said with a crooked grin. I looked into her bloodshot eyes, no soul within.
My life has it's ups. And downs. And it's starting to turn around.  
Show me your teeth Lift the corners of your mouth Smiles are the natural wreathes   When you feel your mood is going south The simplest anecdote is to remind yourself 
The beast hurt came out from the spiked pit Enjoying the liberation, enthralled by the roses before it Yet they renew its wounds old, refusing to be admired   Alarmed by the pain

No matter what year, fear or tear life may bring; remember that there is always cheer that springs. Let freedom ring! From wall to wall, Who would have thought the confederate flag would fall?
IN AWE of AWESOME I digress my awesomeness-modestly I don’t protest What I say is not in jest-to pursue this awesomeness So awesome follows through the hollows Over the sorrows beyond tomorrows

Pure love the one you can't see the type to sne
Sick in the hospital Diabetes has me here again My pumps not working All my panceras is, is dead.
Wake up...wake...WAKE!  I am falling fast...tumbling downward in a crazy spiral So nauseous...head throbbing My skin, blood, bones, and soul tearing apart Screams lost in the cacophany
The beauty of the forgotten
The talk down.  The walk down the stairs.
I know this self(i.e me)
Loud and yet quiet,
I am Victoria Brooke Pickel
What's on Nate's IG The best Nate that Nate would be the Nate that should be  
A million selfies, now a million and oneI've sent to the eyes of the man who held the gun.The gun of the happiness I asked him ownOn account of the interest and affection he'd shown.

Who am I?  My birth name is Shelby.  But that's changed over the years; shrimp, chipmunk, penguin, shorty. School was rough. Not always fitting in.  Graduation set me free. Now - I am me.
Love her the same By Lauren Deja  
My pup is growing so very fast, She eats and plays and snores like a fiend, Her Churchill demeanor makes her all the more lovable, Cleo the dog, our bond will only get stronger.
dr j and micheal jorden was the best basketball players to ever play the game of basketball, they were great ball players and they will rise to the top.
I hide who I am from most everyone today I was bullied and harassed back in the day It taught me to sit back quietly and assess Don't allow anyone in or else it causes stress
The world seems to lean by the masses to the optical
I’m not a poet I’m a penny flying through the air after you throw it Off the top of a building or Into the wishing well   I’m wishing well for all my brothers and sisters across the globe
I am a frugal creature with a mindful nature I could never have my meals specially catered  When there so many who go hungry all because of money  I would spare no expense to bring them in harmony 
My pouting lips, My freckles, My brown eyes brown hair and blonde tips are Exposed. My red skin, My frizzy curls, My chubby wrists cheeks and chin.

I was born into a generation A generation bred into technology They claim we lack morals and conservation But I believe it is an inherited ideology They bombard us with promiscuity and violence on the big screen
Without a filter I use huge words Cuss words, made-up words, Ugly words like butt hurt I’m positively a grammatical genius 32 on my ACT in English Now when tell me am I using this?
Babies are crying, while people are dying.There's always that one, that you say you love.Why though do they hurt, they're face down in the dirt.
I am a very humble man I do everything I possibly can Discrimination needs to stop There is no race who is on top Red, yellow, white or black We are equal, thats a fact The killing needs to cease
People today brag about “No Filter” as if it is an accomplishment, Bragging that they have not edited themselves, Acting as if displaying the truth of yourself is some great, courageous act.
Face loaded up with make-up,
There's a coursing river coming right at you no dams or cares that's a fact. But I hope you know something, this honesty isn't fantasy. I'm not a funny page, I'm imbuing knowledge

I esteem.
I am a woman. Therefore, I am power. A typical woman is said to bloom like a flower. Why bloom like a flower, when you can sting like a bee? I am fearless, and I will be a queen.  
In my head there is music
Nobody is perfect, I hear it every day, "Flawless just doesn't exist", But who cares what people say.   Beautiful, confident, bold; Ugly, fat, queer; We are our greatest critics,
  Woman Wrapped in Self-Confidence   I am a woman wrapped in self-confidence A crown of wisdom placed upon my brow A heart of wonder laced with tenderness Tall I stand against all resistance.  
The world is colorful Our perception is often not Instead of the rainbow We live in black and white thought We catogorize, we generalize--we label each other's lives With our preset misconceptions 
“Is it okay? Are you okay?” You say “I feel so guilty” “Not enough” I say If you did it anyways
It’s not as if I've never been here before   It's right there in that chair that you realize tears are imminent
Through thick and thin, we formed an alliance, Turned to each other when in need of reliance. Guiding me through when life throws me troubles, Providing advice for my daily struggles.
I am always the most hyper person in the room. When i talk it comes out loud and booming.  I never serious and the only time i stop moving is when i fall asleep. My hands are always tapping and there is a beat in my head,
The love that has been shown to me, without the makeup and clothes, is a different kind of love, then when i have them on, but who am i to impress others, I'm just me, myself and I,But who is this me, This me is a girlwho isn't afraid, Isn't afrai
      When you leave you venture above dormant pavement This is a memory This is a moment
  Death is easy, Life is hard, Death is calm, Life is rough.
I am not flawless Nobody but a fool says they are.   My nails are uneven Because I bite them worrying whether my work’s even
I walk with my hijab- shadowed but shining I walk fast, small silent steps, quick pace I walk and weave through the crowded hallways No bother to anyone, anyone no bother to me
Wat i know is the theory of me What i believe in honor in which i see the others in a new light
Take me to church and tell me no and go to hell. I dont belong here and I never will belong here. I could never believe you.
Contemplation
Without a Face, Do I Still Exist?  
Once more, I look through the mirror and see exactly the person I didn't want to be. All the life, all the sense, all ambitions I'd need, were gone from the person who stared back at me.
I am the bastardized version of the American dream.  To many I am not clean, to more unseen.  I was a foster care child, to which many equate to wild.
A shoe too small for man to wear; Lost life, a soul so young, a br'er. Upon the grave we must lament; our wails to carve the grey cement. The dead we wrought; wrung malcontent.
I'd only felt at best in my dreams and even then I wasn't fully asleep. Plagued by my conscience of insecurity, constantly reminded of my impurities. Entirely, I forced myself to accept me.
All my life I fought to become The girl without a flaw I tossed and turned, awake at night This is what I saw.   A world of perfect people, Every one the same. And as I dreamed I realized
"Write about a trouble in your life," they say- but in no way      can I relay        the way that I got laid
When I looked in the mirror I saw pain and hurt written all over it. When I looked in the mirror I saw black and blue. When I looked in the mirror I began to cry because when I looked in the mirror I saw ugliness.
They say your eyes, When given time, Become accustomed To the night.   Though dark and eerie One great shadow, Night penetrated Glows to light.   It is a lie.
Flawless Am I that Could I be that Wish I could be Looking in the mirror I saw them all Big nose, big forehead, ugly smile I fixed the smile But what about the rest? Work out
Flowers are like spring,   Blooming and born anew,  
One can describe,  One can demostrate, One can interwined, but the kind of that you show,  will come alive only.. If you choose to show it.
As the pandas die off, so do I But I’ve been told lie after lie That I am fine That I’m only hyped On some “cute” delusion “But, is it a delusion?” I ask in utter confusion
People look at me as I look back they say what I could be and the things I lack
Behind the mask I have been stripped Stripped away from all that was mine I am just a plain face Left out in the cold to wither away My eyes fill with tears I am a souless soul
A flawless person has never once walked upon this earth Women everywhere are itchin' to gain beauty and selfworth Society tells them they are too fat or too thin But women need to know that beauty comes from within
Quick with a joke and full of hope
That's ItI've made itI'm doneI booked my ticket straight to the sunThe stars speak and I hear;"This is your Captain speaking,Your one way flight from victim, Land of SilenceHome of the Slave
Being two people at the same time is hard.
I am simply me   Nothing more nothing less Do I speak differently Why yes The shaking you hear is not my choice Scared that the next word I say will not come out
A heartless beating thumps in my chest My head manifests an illusion of what was
Save all that drama and animosity  Cause it ain't for me, You can be the one to tell Facebook and Tweet but your standards, I'm not about to meet.  I wasn't sent here for everyone to like me
I step onto the stage ready to entertain, but people do not know Behind the curtain I left my shame. Fantasies are what they are seeing. What draws you into hell? Why do they bother hearing
If you only could look through my da
I hide inside myself in some secret waiting place far away, close beside, listening to songs I remember of you.   No one goes or knows or maybe even cares,
I've been surrounded by people, who've greatly impacted my life. "Great", such a terriible word. Its nature is a double-edged sword. For one who conquers the world, whether to spread love or unleash hate
Sitting alone on the grass late one night Admiring the starry sky shining so bright I could not help but be in awe of my God Who created the heavens and man out of sod
I don't wear makeup
A being in my heart, You were always there from the start. Never shall we be apart. Me and the being in my heart.   We gaze up towards the coudy sky, In agony, our life isa lie.
I can’t chew on the thought that’s begot Rotting inside like they thought I forgot When they couldn’t see me gnashing my fangs against my iron-wrought cage, the fangs, their bangs-
I woke up this morning to the sound of no alarm clock Of course I was 30 minutes late, and I had to leave in ten I shot up from my bed and my whole body cracked
my room is crowded with feelings, and all i feel is alone. my family and friends, they just pretend that this house was ever a home my mother, she really does love me. she's the one who tends to my wounds.
I grew and noticed I had no pair Sent by God to provide care All ma burdens no one help bare Of the many Love none was shared.
Who can judge my dirty blonde hair? Who can judge me on what I should wear?
“You’re boring” I smile thinly Returning to my book It’s hardly a plot twist I’ve heard this many times I already know it’s true   But then they keep coming back
Roses are flowers and so are violets. I really like nursing, it is my dream. I'm gonna help people and that's important. Who knows? I might help your child someday. My rhyming is terrible and so is this poem,
I come from a neighborhood of South L.A. where it is likely for the local youth who succumb to the world of the Gang Bang. Typically, the local gang members do hard time for committing drive by's that go "Bang! Bang!".
As a elementary student I read books to get gold medals It was for competition, climbing academic levels However my competitiveness turned into a love affair  Books became my escape from despair 
What makes me happy can be rather simple: My car, my sister, not having a pimple. But it can be more complicated than that. Like seeing a friend and having a chat, Or watching my favorite show,

You're gonna hear me roar! Katy Perry sure knows how to rock her assonance.  
BY BRENDA SHAUGHNESSY If it takes me all day, I will get the word freshened out of this poem.   I put it in the first line, then moved it to the second, and now it won’t come out.
