Just to breath Just to believe From opening your eyes every day To the path we lay Nothing is more amazing then life No matter what strife Live life your way Happy no matter what they say

By the breaking of dawn, the bright lays of sun penetrates the sky unto us, 
Life has its ups and downs

They say black is the new black  Acting like they're bringing it back But lack the fact that it never left    My black have always been around  just like how we have always had crowns  
i didn’t know you were beautiful. i ignored the world you painted and the people you created and exchanged it all for what i heard you were. i set you aside for shallow satisfaction in cracked cisterns and wondered
Happiness surrounds you and caresses the heart with warm fingers. It gives us the courage to fight the black, crooked claws of saddness. It allows us to swim to the top of the crystal, clear water,

The first time I talked to you It was like the waves washed me up onto shore and I dried out in the sun. I promised I'd never go back in the waves  and drift away.   You dreamed of the ocean and

1.       The reliability I can place on my tongue to speak. Or to sing; to scoop these words, these sounds out of my mouth, like black-raspberry ice cream, into a ready bowl; willingly waiting for what I have to say.
Around us is only warmth. Inside me is only one sound. We can see colors contrast,Breaking through our windows.Winter has turned to spring,Summer yet to come.
At one point life had no worries, no responsibilities But it's not an option to grow You go to school, you go to work Then everything begins to flow You'll always make mistakes It's an advantage of living
At first, she was the Sun But not Comforting sun, healing cold shivers and bleak days with angelic rays of warmth Not the Tranquil sun, collaborating in perfect breathes with the wind to create a peaceful, sunny breeze.

We paint this picture together   Because we can both see true beauty.   The two of us look beyond the surface,  
Palms sweaty, knees heavy Running for miles and miles Trapped in a tunnel with no vision ahead Walls enclosing near me Claustrophobia is what I dread As I believe I will never see the light again  
I was born with a ribcage like skipping stones,
I stand looking out into the vast expanse of the ocean,

A trail of dirt followed me wherever I went. Down the stairs in the car in my family room in the bathroom but my mother didn’t yell at me because the dirt I left was red

Life- the Wondrous, Awe-Inspiring Phenomenon The earth is full of awesome things It’s such an overwhelming, astonishing place. Canyons, Oceans, valleys and peaks

Do not run, do not cry The story spills out before your eyes Hide the depth of pain, of agony Speak to Ahab, Oliver, and Harry Run your fingers along its spine Like Gollum you may claim "it's mine"
Time and time again, rejection will ascend,
Glancing at the mirror and I see my face, Negativity arises as my thoughts race. What is so special about me? Why can't I leave? Stop! Why do I care? What is this negativity just when I stare?
Everything in life is awesome In the spring time the flowers will blossom. The birds will return and chirp all day And every kid will wanna go out and just play, Only problem is that school is still in session

We can find the awe in everything
In the beginning, 
Summer is Awesome Not because we're out of school Because there is so much time to make moves Time to do things we think are awesome Play sports and see our friends  All this time to spend 
The adrenaline builds. Starting deep within, Climbing and rising until, I begin to feel it. Pupils dilating, hands shaking, mind racing… And then, All at once, I fall.  
Walking to find trail, carrying all that you need on your back.Rocks piled on rocks reassuring you of your path.The sunlight pokes through the tops of the trees

Do me a favor and laugh until you cry spend a night under an open sky shed a few tears and feel no fear hold the warmth of someones hand in your own
Without fail- the sun rises As it reaches out from under the blanket of darkness- Death, doubt, demise-
I tend to forget about me. We... We tend to forget to remeber ourselves. This is simply not just me, but we. We forget to achkowledge, to pat ourselves on the back, to applaud ourselves for that which we have done. So today I choose to remember.

Sometimes the sun doesn't shine how you want it, Sometimes the moon is a little too grey,  Sometimes the clouds scurry forward to steal your joy away. But no one has ever told you, See no one has ever told you,
Feeling this summer breze they way it calls for me it ignites fire and good will  I bet you'd agree  a world full of excitment and thrill so much potentioal in this world, one can foresee
As the broken hearts and tears surround me As the loud lonely cries besiege me I see the light through the cracks  I feel the love through pain As the stormy clouds gather As the broken shards lay
Trying so hard not to make a sword out of my words,
No one wants a broken mirror. No one wants all the cuts, that comes with the broken pieces. No one wants to be the one to try an glue the pieces back together. If you try to glue them back together, they’ll just break again.

In the midst of great fury
Watch out for the rising of the sun Which brings hope for a new tomorrow See the sun's rays shine upon the ocean blue where amazing creatures reside   See the sun's rays light upon the unyielding mountain
I'm a little bit shocked And a quite a lot scared When the rose-colored glasses I usually wear
It's Autumn,   So bright and beautiful-- Adventure around every corner. College begins.  In High School I was perfect.  In High School I made no mistake.  In High School I was me. 
How could I have let this happen? How could I study for endless hours and still fail? How could I think that everything is fine when it wasn’t? Like Legos, GPAs are easy to tear down but difficult to put back together.
The tears well up for there’s nothing I can do, “I am worthless”, I think,  I can’t even breakthrough, The tests that I have failed and the goals that I’ve missed, I suddenly remember it all,
Life is all about perspective. Some perceive it with love while some perceive it with hatred.
Sometimes life can be rough, Sometimes life will be tough, But sure enough, Life will get better. Life can be easy, Life can be simple All you have to do is work , work, work

Todo es maravilloso Everyting ire Everthing is awesome! No matter the language it is true The way the earth moves fills me with glee The way the trees grow That is my serenity. 
The storm has come, The storm has gone. Things were destroyed,  One by one. The winds blew strong, As we grew weak. But we stayed safe, As long as we had to be. Now in this morning,
One of a kind Unique to itself Filled with life Filled with joy   A home to diversity To all living things From the smallest of the small To the biggest of them all  
I sit here waiting,wondering if the time is near. The time when he can no longer take the words from your mouth. Words that twist like daggers in his soul, thrust from hands that never thought twice.
We live in a world where knowledge is hated. Where the very existence of our people is constantly reminded of hatred.

Life as we know it. It holds us still and spins us around. It whirls us back, and knocks us to our backs. As I lay, I think on it; life. It's a miracle.
I stare at the mirror and ask myself who are you, But I can't find the words to answer.  Bullied most of my life, I start to feel what they see.
