This hospital bed’s so lonely And even the bed sheets are cold I know things would be different If I had your little hand to hold
when the Sun is alive so am I the unimaginable dream is mine fog will remain in my path but fire in my eyes, boldly. there is a dawn that rises unshakeable and endless like the core of soul
I’m waiting:waiting for freedom, for a spectacular burst.I’ll know its appearing, though all I know now is the thirst.Just a distant echo now, but how could not the symphony be grand?
I want to sleep...I really do. He's calling just beyond the avenue. Tight curb, love in the low life suburbs. Patiently waiting for me.Sich schminken to hide a brutally gentle tide.
The smell of spruce The glistening fir The cloudy cool I know for sure The gentle rain It fills the air It cleans the earth It damps my hair The mountains sigh With refreshing need
the forgetfulness of tomorrow around come the stars heaven’s forgotten in a launch past mars whoever foretold the fortune of the future was sure of the truth only to be fooled
Drops fall from black skies. They crash on Autumn leaves leaving streaks of heaven.
Rest In Peace (RIP) is a term for the deceased that I will no longer useNow I know at first the way this sounds may leave you confusedBut If you knew Jesus then you truly have nothing to loose.

Lord, I know I’m nowhere near your model image For what a good human is I come here with nowhere left to turn Exiled from my home
A little girl used to sit and ask, “Daddy why do people have to leave so fast” What do you mean? He questioned with some fear, Thinking to himself, she only has one year.
Nothing was simple, not even before. Unanswered questions appeared at the door. For months nothing seemed to make sense anymore. But we sang about peace, just like children.
What am I gonna do when you’re gone? Because you couldn’t let anybody in to hear the cries of your sad song. So tell me what am I gonna do when you’re gone?
Im slamming through these rhymes like it means nothing, Some say its a crime, yet im not doing the time. Some say its intense, but I see it as common sence. Some say it comes from the heart, yet they dont know the start.
Why I write? I write because you told me to Because you encountered history and literature but never met a pen or page
Why did you have to love me? I can promise you that it’s nothing against you. But, I turn away because I keep love close, maybe too close, and I think that I will only remember and love you.
The earth laughing in flowers The ocean singing a lullaby.
I wondered how Someone so angelic as you Could have turned out to be The demon that broke my heart And then I remembered That Lucifer too Was once an angel.
Fallen into the deep Abyss of my dreams.I stand in a valley filled with Different hues of green.An ever flowing river Runs nearby.The sun shines downUpon me.A figure more luminous

Entitled: Najarri Samuel Whitehead But that's all you read. Skipped past the prologue, and examined the pictures. So in reality you only saw the happiness, the joy. Never walking the heartache and pain.
My biggest fear will never visit me Never will I allow myself to fall in To cave in, to wither, to fall. For I will stand as strong as a weeping willow. In the darkness he lurks, always behind me.
Far away from this place, Trees dance to gusts of wind Kings have rein under grace It’s too far from this place. Over the peachy dawn, Solid castles don’t fall, The lion rests with a fawn
I once was lost, I felt alone in this world and empty, I felt like life was not worth the cost, My insides were hollow, And my heart feeling hefty, Why to live? What do I have to give?
There's this pretty girl I know, Who told me how she loved me so, And I don't know what to do. There's this tiny little complication, That's built up my frustrations,
Long ago in the old folk’s place A boy with innocence on his face Came to knock on the gated door The man behind it saw a child there With blue eyes and mussed blonde hair
I chose to write today Having been gifted with literacy Gifted with the words I say Have power, the authority To bear truth, God-given knees Bent in prayer, wholly broken
Pride and Glory The most prized possession The most pure and unique It has its own worth Pride is your own love You value yourself You do your best in everything You look down on others
(poems go here) Wish Heaven had a phone so I could hear your voice again. I thought of you today, but that is absolutely nothing new. I thought about you yesterday, and day before that too.
I'm missing you everyday, You are always on my heart and mind, I try to see your face but I fear it is fading away, Im longing to hear your voice, I'd love to hear your laugh,
Entering into the longest line I had ever seen, I tried to decipher what it all means. To my left, there is a lake of fire. To my right is what my heart desires. Now it is my turn to be judged.

My problems are on the rise like the bubbles in an aged bottle of champagne A myriad of curses, issues, and a cacophony of damn pain. Gluttonous consumption of pain and other drugs and chemicals
"Daddy?" "Yes, Sweetheart" "I love you" I write for the one who gave me brown hair and eyes, For the one who sang me my favorite lullabies. The swing set he built, my rocking horse by hand,
Hell is his empty syringe And the searing pain of his emptiness. Hell is the heat of the absence That grows hotter in his presence. Hell is the tears that evaporate
Today, I’m missing my one true star, thinking about how we would be together, having fun, riding a space car, through the vast galaxy forever.
All I need is eight eighteen To brag on my king. He is my everything. All my heart and my soul belong to my heavenly king. My lyrics flow from the heart to the stage scene, Taken from the bad scene,
Summer time is here and along with that brings the family out. Out on break from school and work, out enjoying what nature offers. At our family cabin hidden back in the woods of rolling hills.
They say that all things Had used to be combined. Together in God's world, Existing freely under the Son. But then one day, A great ball appeared, With a brand new kind of life Living under His eye.
Born on the wing of time, Flowing ever so gentle, A life becoms amazingly real Along God's glorious mantle.
We walk the Earth like we own it We live as if we can live forever Commit sins, show arrogance, and show no fear to anyone or anything
Rest now soldier your quest is put to rest Bloody wounds ache in sorrow it'll be better for you tomorrow You'll leave the battle field once in for all He's waiting to take you home soldier hear his call

Daddy, Daddy look at me Watch me as I fly More and more I’m gaining speed As I soar through sky Mommy, Mommy how I see you below me now I’ll come and have a looky When I can swoop down
I. For the first time in a long while, I went to my jewelry box, a place Of cameos and my mother’s earrings, And took out my necklace of delicate gold And settled it on my collarbone
Tears burn my gentle face What hurts me the most Is knowing there's nothing I can do But look up at the midnight sky And pray you know how much I miss you My first heartbreak and you weren't there
In striving to view that which is not normally seen, To pry into the gods’ minds as they meander Into what could only catapult the living through madness which Is in the mind, forever present and lurking.
Beautiful, submissive, and enduring sufferer! You were the lamb imprisoned within a den of wolves. Abandoned in this world, you understood cruelty’s impermanence. The deepest admiration from my heart’s deepest vaults you summoned.
A hand of tension One finger down at a time Three...Two...One Eyes close The wind blows The rain falls The house falls The cradle tips A tear drops Our hearts break
Ecstasy coma My brain overwhelmed with Peace Dipping Dots are Love
Beside the wood-framed doorways of Paradise lay what we have left behind, for our gatekeeper is ever vigilant, sorting soul from chaff, "You cannot take it with you." -
Heaven's Fall You're driving home, darkness close behind, this sleazy solace so painfully unkind.
Everything That lies within Becomes without when life Frees itself From mortal shells, The spirit free from strife And thus ascends To where forever Waits among the stars, Light and free,
You departed way to soon > Now you're up there with the moon, > The clouds, and stars while they shine bright > I hold back tears all through the night, > Can't help but think of all the memories > You truly meant a lot to me, >
There has to be a heaven out there. Just watch water trickle from the Earth. Up, there's a never ending somewhere. Sky so blue in which the wide eye lurks.
It was on an usual August day This story is not easy to say Without getting all teary eyed Knowing it was my last goodbye
The crisp waters of heaven flow down to surround. Engulfing, they lift me. They lift me higher and higher Until there is no stress, no anxiety, no suffering. Free at last, I can think. I can breath.
Just an angel in Hell Trying to get to Heaven The closer she makes it to the in-between The further away Heaven seems One day she'll make it there Until then, she'll keep fighting her demons
May your journey take you far from this darkness May your will to prevail heal the sting May you continue on this lonely and unbeaten path May this closure bring peace to you and the world
There’s a star up in heaven for mother today. The star twinkles brightly to say she’s ok. She loved life completely and never let go. Now she’s singing in heaven and wants you to know That she misses you—sure
Dear God, Somethings I just don’t understand; like things must be extremely complex or my mind too inferior to comprehend, the things that plague the human mind, body, and soul.
Heaven shine and reveal thy glory! For hours below cannot compare, Even with dreams found in a story, To seconds above with God up there. Beauty herself is sure to unfold, In the Utopia built for all,
What's wrong with this world that we live in? Sometimes I want to give in, and give up, and go down and watch us spin around this dark place, this dark space, this rough place, that I'm in,
“I had a dream” A very famous quote. A dream of unity. A dream of hope. Everyone has dreams. Some good, some bad. But one thing I must tell you Is of one that I’ve had.

Eternal heavenly bliss Even sweeter than a kiss Soaring so High Way up in the sky Leaving life behind I can't hardly wait To see the pearly gate Smiles and happiness there
