I simply visualize a place in'harmony...on my way home from work. But these torns have grown over my'path, constantly... stepping into climax!
I kept close watch of him barely through a keyhole, but just enough to see him grow. This way I could learn from him, see how life blooms in the dark. It must be done.
Some where in this universe is an answer truly. A question we all diverge as a result of our undoing. But this life is a test that we barely shine to admit. The colors we display on a map of old cold hatred.
I stood bare foot up first words whisper, to adapt I must adopt. An image no more a minority to the wide spread hatred we call war.
I see wisdom
Know Yourself. This life is not so easy, give time a tog to settle down for a reason. Realize it is inevitable to swerve out of place, like your first steps made, hardly to keep in pace.
I can see the grass grow higher -Oh how must this life come easy To grow as the wind blows -If only it was as swift to rest in peace
A song played on the radio. Told me that I gotta know That I'm not alone. Eyes welling with tears, I turned it up so I could hear. Someone with a love so great, That it never runs out.
Lifting my eyes to the sky above me, I enjoyed one last glimpse of the light. And as I prepared my heart, in came the clouds of darkness To surround me in a seemingly endless night.  
Three hundred and sixty-five days ago, I didn’t see, I didn’t know. Now my path seems so much clearer! Time speeds up, fate draws nearer.
Tempus Neminem Manet Time waits for no one Despite the lies you've been told There will be no more time to have fun No more time to laugh and run
Tears are slowly accumulating At the corner of my eye I hold my stomach aching in pain Each successive breath is slowly becoming too difficult to make

Pull the rope from either end Watch it fray and snap and destroy from within.   Then squeeze the ball at its very core Till it’s a flat disk, with a pop, then a ball no more.  
It’s the third Friday of the month,young people’s night at its liveliest.  Fourteen to forty,youths of many ages file into the pews.   It’s been a long week,       a turbulent month, a trying year.
Each breath brings about A life enslaved in shadows Long days of one And time in scattered pieces   Afternoons hunched over
 She never liked the way her clothes fit on top of the skin that also never fit quite right. Her hands had always held things too tight and her feet could never run fast enough. She was either too much or too little for a demanding world.

They say not to question God, for His ways are beyond our own. It was a Sunday morning, watching the sweat pour from my father's face as he delivered the Holy Word, "For I knew thee before I formed thee in the womb."

This past year has taught me a lot, And its safe to say it hasn't been easy. No, its been anything but. I started it off happy. New state, new school, new faces, new me. 
Why must we feel heartbreak? From where does it come? I assure you this: It doesn’t come from above But rather from evil with malicious intent First pleasure, then pain and spiritual torment  
Dear God, I want to say thank you. Thank you for being here for me when nobody else was. Thank you for protecting me even when I was doing wrong Thank you for being my provider when I needed something 
I hear all these voices shouting, filling my head yelling, proclaiming: GOD IS DEAD. I will not be silent, I will not be ashamed, because the very God that knows my name
who am I? Am i different than i was the day before today? You tell me.  
Drowning in sorrow from the choices I've made in my past, Only God knows how long this pain is going to last. No one seems to know the heartache I have to swollow,
My days are building up, my days are building up now , the sound of the drums are like my heart now, I don't really wanna fit, i just really wanna give, giving thanks to the one that's up now, my faith just fills my cup now, it ain't done till I s
No light, Darkness reigns at this hour.   No sound, Sadness takes at this hour.   Can't feel, Senses are far away.   Can't breath. No air left to take in.  
Four long years you've been gone.We miss you.Every year we have to realize more and more that you're gone. The pain unbearing. My heart still tearing. No more advice. No more caring touch. 
Everyone shares, but not everyone cares. Poor child putting her heart out for the vultures.Just for a stroke of approval.Why?Because society says approval is needed. Human nature says approval is needed. 
Knives thrust deep within the backs of others; Smiles that keep igorant minds at bay; Words that break barriers and bones alike; Deception and destruction and acts of strife.   In a world so empty of hope.
My boat drifts away from the dock I sit and watch my dreams die.   How do I say, “it is okay, you have a plan.” You do have a plan, right?   The boat drifts to the horizon, my stomach drifts with it.
You have to know what God requires  In order for you to be what God desires Never hesitate to take the plunge  Because you are never alone God wants you to know how much you can handle Because as a child
What awakens my eyes? What seemingly invisible something Sparks my passion, without wrinkling my soul I grow older
I lay broken and confused because the past that has held me back for so long. Along came a glorious man who held out his hand and saved me from the dead. He held my hand on our treacherous leap of faith.

His Love It envelops me in happiness It makes my heart sing a song It pulls back the curtain of confusion It teaches me right from wrong  It shows me the purpose of life 
looking threw each eye the three folds of feelings can dictate your day.  Pain, love, hope . You may feel that your looking threw your pain.
If all stars were meant to be the same then they would have the same shape and size they would even be the same in the way they shine.
Faith. It sounds so simple. A cliche some might say. But to me, Losing my faith would be as if I lost my sanity.   My faith in God is a necessity. Without it, life would mean nothing.
I didn't know... that... It was a crime... To be real... So I guess ive been sentenced to life in prison for 1st,2nd, and 3rd degree words that burn your skin because you don't like the truth
A cloud of Turmoil Stress can just soil Positive Hopes Left Unsurfaced All the Dark Weather is  Just of Satan's Teather To Pull you in the  Sand that quicks the Despair of life that Creaks
He came over to the side of the sea; Out of the ship, Jesus saw a man who was quite unclean; He lived among the tombs, his life was bind in chains; He’d bust out of jail because he was wild, untamed.
Afraid that there is a greater potential  a box they give us to condition in if they do this long enough  they believe that we'll be trapped trapped in a mindset that they control No hope  No love
May I, by the power vested in me by the love I have for you,  Place this ruby ring on your quivering finger, Or will you slap it away?   May I, by the faith I have in God 
Short note: the following poem is in Villanelle style. As words that infuse life into a dark place, Poetry gave a face to the tangled mess in my mind, As strokes on a page that probe a soul’s triumph and waste.

It has been quite awhile, Lost in a world I did not belong in. Back to my roots where i was born in. Born again, Never looking back to the past that almost destroyed me. My mind melting, my thoughts clearing.
If you tell me again That we’re no different That we just happened Our luck was purely evolutionary I will give up trying Give up telling you that We’re different We’re special
  I've been guilty of my actions and not wanting to take the blame,  I've brushed it off and put my weight on another man’s shoulders thinking my sins will soon go away.
You are... You are my crazy, my sane, my strength, my weakness You are my law, my procalamtion, my truth, my forgiveness You are my ride or die, my #1 fan, my soldier, my ally

He walked in and he left He left and he came His heart and his soul Was put to shame   I watched and I waited I waited for his gesture I couldn’t compare him To any other sinner  
I believe in a god But not a god that others do   I believe in a god That makes bookstores feel mystical That makes you catch a whiff of old books That makes you almost swoon with nostolgia   
I need help I need something to hold me ever close Because everyday that I look out of my eyes to peek at the world that I will admit I sometimes despise I feel like I want to die I need help
Standing here, surrounded by my belongings I wonder: If the fires blazed high And my room was to touch its lights What would I take with me?

GOD
The LORD has set us free; the KING of Kings has broken every chain. Our GOD is breathing life into us; IMMANUEL is making dry bones live again. The TRUTH has given us a new name;
The one thing I cannot live without is the belief that I am GOOD ENOUGH. Before I realized I was GOOD ENOUGH, life was much harder, days much longer, problems much bigger AND worries much more suffocating.
Most of my generation is focused on social statuses How many friends and likes They get on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter It's like our lives Equate to a laptop and a cellular device
after work I sit on a pillow and meditate   before school I sit on a pillow and meditate  
I've lost faith in others, I've lost faith in myself. I had forgotten what it is like to love, And gave into anger and fear. I started to shut everyone out, For fear of getting hurt again.
When a rough day has passed,filled with tears brought on by the persecution of my peers,I look towards the sky and see,that despite the storm, the sun fights to shine brightly.When the memory of my dear brothers last days cloud my mind,my heart sh
Scared, worried, alone; Emotions flooding my concious.  These feelings won't subside. Almost like waves crashing against the shore, Of that lonley island I sat on.   My world is turning,
My life is complex, filled with tragedy Two years had gone by and I was still in agony  My world was shattered Broken and battered I had no hope  How does a 17 year old cope? God was my light 
I have this friend that I am useless without. I know, I know, Friends are not meant to last forever. But this one sorta does.
Desolated Alone I face the pale murky water The greenish blue reflects back at me I am scared And alone I cling to small promises in my hands Only hoping A mere flame
My cousin says I'm wrong,My sister says I'm living a lie. But each day I still take a secondTo smile at the sky.  
God I need you, can I take your hand? You're patience and mercy are something so grand. The things you give me I do not deserve. But still you're grace I continue to observe. You are my rock to which I cling.
Me, a piece of dust Floating around helplessly, hopelessly Waiting for something to happen Possibly a miracle But nothing appears to be happening   You, the charm of hope
Money is fabulous. Friends can be cool. However, what is life if I had nothing to look forward too? I need faith.  Without faith, I would be a living waste - sitting in disgrace.
They ask me what I could never do without and I am tempted to say a name or a place But I realize now what I could not survive without
I stand here on this island Feeling almost alone Feeling as if there's nothing But there's always something you can hold  
The sun kissed her velvet skin as she opened her arms out to the shore. “Take me as I am!” Nobody wants to be left here with nobody. The wind ran its fingers through her sweet hair. “Love me for me!”
The mountains bow down to You. Oceans cry out for Your glory. You have created us and set us above angels.   
Some may say its just a necklace,that it just hangs around my neck all day.They laugh and claim that anyone can payfor this necklace that hangs around my neck all day.
I've thought about this question plenty, too plenty to recountI could shame the number of ripples in the water surrounding theisland in which im stranded, with how many times I've rejected You.
I sit here all alone— In my room— Such a mess. I’m starting to remember all I have to do. I’m starting to think about all that I could’ve done. I’m beginning to fall in that hole I know so well.
Faith   The unparalleled charter of an Island life can take you by storm. The waves crashing against the shores to reassure that they are your only call. No people, No love, No trust
For a year My eyes were on you My faith in you too Your words in my head The tears on my bed For a year I belonged to you And not with you I kissed in vain And took the pain.
What can't I live without What I can't  breathe about  Breathe to the understanding of my own self What I can't  live without What i can't  eat without Eat without the comfort in my own shell
War. Violence. Hate. Anger. Rage. Hurt. Our world has been destroyed. People are toyed. Where is the love? Who disturbed the peace? Evil is dancing. The Devil is grinning.
I miss my family every day. I think about each passing grain in the hourglass. I think about how desperately I’d rather be free than be here. However, I cannot begrudge the calamities which have been delivered,
Hope is one I cannot live without. She cradles me as I sob on my knees, scraping them on once-holy ground, now tainted by blood and hate. In the dark, she guides me, a beacon of light where none exists. 
Step... Step... Step... Look now! What Have We Here? By God, it's a Turtle! Taking her First Steps! Shyly, Hesitantly, and on Wobbly Legs Could You Ever Believe She Could Step Out of Her Shell At Long Last?
Sometimes I wait, I wait for you to come knock, knock, knocking,  on my door again. I wait for you to come beg me on your hands and knees for forgiveness,
All I need is my Bible, my faith in Godpursuing through my blood and enveloping loveFrom the man who taught me to hate, and stole my loveMy teacher, my abuser, stole my heart away.
You cast your light like candles in the darkness, You love like a flame, Darkness cannot conquer you, No shadow can overcome you lighten rays.   You insert your ignited incandescence into my icy heart,
Faith, its the only thing I need To stay safe and sane Knowing God is with me calms me Through storms & rain I know he's the only one The only one who won't leave Leave me stranded or wondering

Live? Live in a stranded world, stranded in life. Alone? Alone on this earth, this lonely earth. Take? Take luxuries for granted. Bring one luxury to this lonely stranded life.
Never. Never give up on me. I'm like a tree, budding in my love for thee First, I will not know For my limbs had not yet been free From their canopy of leaves Then when I do, I'll be uncertain,
Memorable Medallion   Hail Mary. Bearing a lily, St. Gabriel does not tarry With expostulation and adoration Of the Blessed Virgin.
My dreams, plans, desires, merging at one location. Faith is what I'll bring.
You. I have always needed you. I needed you when I was a small girl, You chased away the darkness, The nightterrors that stalked my dreams ran when you shed your light. I needed you when they came up to me,
Jesus Christ, Who am I? A daughter of your kingdom? A snake in the bushes? A servant to your people? A wicked woman?   Why is this so much easy for other people? Is it really?
All I need is the love of my God For He will keep me safe and secure From the hands of the arrogant That thrive from the devil’s hand His kindness will keep me warm
It's meant to be read every day
Have Faith Faith we cannot live without A life without it, Is it a life at all? No The idea of believing that crumbling humanity will overcome the odds
Jesus, He is Lord of Lords and King of Kings,Jesus, He is the Son of God and God's Word is the truth of all things,Jesus, He is God

He will never turn away from me no matter how many times I push him away or doubt His love Or question him angrily about why I feel this way and why terrible things happen I cannot truly live without His love
I gasp in fear as I for the first time see The frightening, frothy foam around me With selfish fright, I see the swiftness of the water Flowing steadily to you, my father  
It is painful, you seeTo watch as the peopleI grew up with and underChangeBlur from who they wereAnd not often for the betterIt feels as if my family is a landmassThat is breaking apart
Fate works in mysterious ways Putting me through pain on most of my days Mental and physical, it has no preference For in my mind pain has taken up residence   But still I wonder for what reason this is
Raised to work Raised to survive Raised to live but never feel alive Raised to hate by twisted fates from prior hearts that had no ounces Raised to fail in the eyes of success
All I need is freedom... Praises to the authority When majority Promoted white robes as a conformity Of your suppression Waiting too long for legal protection
Question the world around you of the truth Be the one to ask, be the brave It is stemmed in your youth That you are meant to be in this cave The truth is what to seek Don’t listen – you aren’t weak  
Sweet songs,    sifting. Hold on,    hope’s in you. Dear child,    keep your lips widely speaking. Honey,    please smile.
She set sail on the seas of life,Her boat held together by the nails of christ.She bailed the water of trials and tribulationFor she knew she was stronger then the power of satan. At times she felt so lonely on the stormy seasSo she bowed her head
Sweet child, listen. Please will you look at me? I know you see the water.          the peace beneath the sea. But maybe one day,          We’ll go look at that for ourselves…
Standing on the edge on the brink; Chaotically confused. Tears fall faster than you can catch them. Loud inner voices make it hard to think. Your fears and reality have fused.
Mom, for so long my heart was an etch a sketch And I kept it drowned in the depths of childhood memories Where your remindings from Aged scars and past improper lovings Would constantly change my mind and remind me
Time.   It has grown these knarreled and misshapen oaks.   It has ravaged and swelled these grey grey graveyards.   And it faded  the once  great abbey into
I've always been a believer.. I used to believe I needed to be inhebriated to appreciate the things that he's created.  
Come on, go.Go. Don’t you knowthis can’t really harm you- I'm hereand you’re perfectly fit for things like this.No time to reminisceabout the solid groundyou’ll leave, then hit.
Endless tunnels going where? Voicemails left on my dead phone Burning through November air   Tired eyes and windswept hair Hazy buildings, moonlit stone Endless tunnels going where?

He wipes the dust of his Bible in times of need. Eats the bread cause he's hungry. Hungry because he plants the seed so God can see he still believes. He confesses he's sorry he's never seen In Church
A lady came up to me today, She had lost both breasts With soul in her eyes she spoke of a savior. Naive promises of saccharine salvation and loving embraces  Coated her tongue. "It’s too good to be true"
Even though the shattered mirrors reflect a broken person scattered and young,
Children be chasin' stones like streetlights,
In this life, I have sat with the lowest of lows; And have been seated at the heighest of heights... But of all the places I've been, Nothing compares to kneeling in the presence of Grace.
"Beautiful" It's high praise no matter who you are. But to just another young fella Who gets used to his mom calling him "handsome" Probably because she's obligated to "Beautiful" is something else
Through my own special needs I have been able To perform good deeds Because of my life As a musician I can now live For God in submission   Through years of therapy

And she layed there, body nude in the night,
We live in a world of impossible possibilities  A world where nothing is really reality
I'm blind to lines Except the red ones, by design, Like loose leaf, looking higher Seeing white, being inspired to try By a margin of heaven Above a sea of blue lies  
Desperation took me by the hand and led me down the gravel road Pain made the humidity bearable and I went after what I was owed Fear cleared a path and pushed my comfort zone all the way
I may feel alone but there's always someone with me I may feel unloved but I know someone loves me unconditionally

I am the little girl who likes to be alone.  I’m from hurtful words that nobody knows about, where the world is a playground and my life is a song.  I am from remembering a time when each day was long.  I am the friend who always smiles when noth
My love is a chemical, a pulse, and a shock.   My heart is just meat beaten tender.   When I  throw up my hands they are only  bones in a row,

 "More, more" they say, "More, more." These voices won't stop. This emptiness won't be filled enough. "More, more." These voices continue to say, "More, more."  More of what? More friends. More money.
List five miles long
No: life isn't horrible. No: life isn't terrible  or terrifying. No: I cannot stand silent anymore. Yes: I will stand up for  what I know is true  and right. I may be only one voice.
If I were a duckling, the church was my mother. I folllowed and obeyed to please one another. I knew not why I'd bother to question, Why I'd always head my elders instruction.

I am a daughter of God, but in no way am I perfect   I am not a perfect daughter nor will I be a perfect bride.   I’m afraid to admit that the reflection I see might not even really be me.

Hard-core, A man with an iron will, Seeker of justice in a world of chaos.   He has his moments of weakness, vulnerability... But in such times she always holds him up, supports him,
You stagger through the door, belligerent and blind. Anger that only spirits could invoke - menacing - gleering through your eyes.
I didn't believe. What happens when you die? Is there a heaven and hell or am I living a lie? I didn't believe. You see stuff on the news. You figure none of those things can possibly happen to you.

Pot Luck Papa My dad brings odd things to the table. The contents of which, are appropriate for fable. Succulent shrimp and other crustaceans delight. While odd concoctions bubble, giving children a fright.
I love you, don't you know that yet? You are my rock My moon My sun My ray of hope  My sunday morning The weight that holds me together You are the main star to my night
Mediocrity is dominant in the addressing of global issues.  'The world will heal, just give it time.'  That time is mine granted by
Enslaved by thought so I carry the tale with worn feet, My kind was contained to cultivate something sweet. Sugar cane working, Rays from the sun start to sting- My ancestors with worn feet wished for fresh wings.
It can move mountains, can reveal fountains, of life and breath,
Faith You've Lost  
We are all just specks On the dirty, dirty hands
Who care's he snarls,  All alone with your face in the corner nowhere to run, My World's ice'd over covered in snow,  Then I hear a vioce it say's I care, Jesus Christ you heard my prayer's,
They say He is not allowed in my life They say He is not real He is not worthy           He is not gracious            He is not kind
These people be looking at me like I'm crazy Like the shit I been doing ain't the right shit maybe Maybe I'm loosing my mind I haven't been feeling right lately Like all these demons inside been tryna step out on me
One of my biggest filters would be
Forget The World With Me?
  Sometimes I hold my head in my hands and sink into the sheets teeth in a soft lip turned chapped too much pushing on me from all sides from nowhere
The future is there
Without the filters who am I? Without the filters will I die?   Millions persuaded to become something they're not, only to find that out that what's inside....has changed a lot.  
I prayed for the patience to wait for you and finally here you stand
Gone is the color in their eyes. Because of the choice of one person, On the ground, they all fell down   The cries for justice, When these three went, They all die down.  
I am flawless because i am forgiven Washed to purity By love that wrote eternity A sinner declared saved I will never be betrayed I am loved by Him And when I fail He forgives again
The voices in my head Laughs and stalks Mocking their way to my heart   My heart has a door The key Jesus He is who opens and locks.   The voices in my head Laughed and stalked
He called them to the sea A boundless tempest raging Those of little faith witnessed it made still Iēsus Nazarēnus, Rēx Iūdaeōrum Made still for the faithful to come   Without the storm
       Two people and one room, or so one person in one house. Three children in one forest, yet thousands of souls mixed in a habitat of guts and glory.
Seit drei Jahren muss ich's ertragen,
Our days are no longer filled with faith and honesty; But with people who seem faceless. We can’t rely on the world and allow them to make up feel worthless;
Why does suffering exist If God loves us so much? Isn't he all-powerful? Then why can't he make traffic go faster, get rid of my flu, heal my daughter's cancer, bring back my husband?
To wish upon a star Is to latch your dreams onto the insubstantial To meld fantasy into reality And believe in something magical The tiny pinpricks of light Each the capital of its own nation
Hold on Turn around Take a look at what we've found I've had a hard time believing  That everything happens for a reason But I see it I see it now   I don't know where I'm going
DEAR GOD 
Yet me walk in your shoes so I can soften them up so your feet don't touch the hard ground you step on.
I look in the mirror And I am you
She stands looking in the mirror and what does she see ? what she appears to be  a young woman of faith  filled with promises from above Her flaws run deep  yet she is washed clean
"True believers are a dime a dozen," the old crow used to say. "What's there to believe?" the young colt always asks. "God is the answer," the immovable turtle proclaims.
Love is cruel, to the sovereign heart, men like me only known in part, struggles within that I never shared, with the one who told me that she really cared, my mind is now reeling and filled with regret, I cannot move forward, even take my next b
All of our years we work and try to see, The girl or boy we are supposed to be. We go through school being judged and bullied, Just to turn around and judge and bully. We are called to act with love and kindness,
Hey.   Hi   Are you ever going to answer me?   Daddy, I know I have screwed up alot, but please just say hi?  
Cancer is scary, Cancer is frightening, but don't worry child, Because I know you won't stop fighting,
I AM STUCK IN A MAZE THERE IS NO WAY OUT, I FELT THE LONELINESS DRIVING ME INSANE, I RAN IN BETWEEN STONE COLD WALLS THAT NEARLY REACHED CLOUDS, STOPPING TO CATCH MY BREATHE IN FRONT OF ME WAS A FLOWER,
Long walks on the beach Looking into your eyes 
You flawed up, they’d say You a mess up, they shout Hair a mess, tears were more, they were cruel They couldn’t care less how I was hurting to the core, they were cruel.
One white kid in the whole neighborhood All my friends spoke Spanish but still I knew the truth That every one of us wants the same exact thing To find a safe haven and to have a family  
Mom a word that's supposed to mean safety,but to me it's the epitome of MAYBE,  MAYBE she'll be here tonight or tomorrow, MAYBE out drinking, I'm thinking, this word mom makes me feel irate,
  Faith is never an easy entity to face. What does it look like? Does it have two eyes? No eyes at all?   Faith is walking when everyone tells you there’s no ground.
CUT THE RESTRAINTS THAT HAVE HELD YOU BACK SHUT THE DOOR TO ALL THE NEGATIVE SMACK BUILD THE BLOCKS OF CONFIDENCE INSIDE YOU SHILED THE PAST AND PUT OLD THOUGHTS BEHIND YOU
Cheers to the unforgettable memor
A broken family With harmful words  A mind filled with caged birds Yelling, screaming float up above  headphones, earbuds singing love A pure mind, a white dove Slamming doors, broken windows 
Tonight, I can write about a broken moment in time,   About a lone wolf, Whose power and grace fell, As the heavens would cry, Shunned because she didn’t fit in, Didn’t agree with the status quo,
I Woke Up Like This... Faithful.  
I’m driving to the store. I look left at a stoplight; A girl is applying on mascara on her already thick lashes  In the limited time frame that we have and I think of
Dear brother, I wrote this poem to and for you.
Your scent reminds me of blossoms Your smile is the light of my mood Possibly seeing myself in your eyes That swift touch like heavens bliss   Treasuring those senses For those smell, sight, and touch
  Her widsom to empower the future  to belive that a dream can  become a reality  no matter what boundary steps aside  there will always be " Widsom and Hope"
It isn't just a word we use For when things will be fine It isn't just said to amuse Or recite a religious line   It isn't just a simple lyric In a hymnal song
The alarm goes off. My sheets fly off me and my feet hit the ground running. My family wakes up. Mom is putting on her uniform and dad puts on his collar. My house comes to life. 
ME
Scared in a world with a variety of people, the rejects, the nerds and quiet people . With the people who belong on stages and are natural leaders , those who belong at the steaple.
HE'S LIVIN OFF A REPUTATION THAT HE ONCE HAD, HE DOESN'T READ HIS BIBLE ANYMORE IT JUST FADED AWAY LIKE SOME KINDA FAD. NOW IT JUST SITS IN HIS ROOM ON A DUSTY SHELF,
  What uplifts me? Such a simple question But difficult to answer What does it mean? "What inspires me?
there comes times we have to be strong and admitt we are wrong .you can continue your journey  if  your not accepting youre own mistakes . mistakes are apart of  human nature and that is what makes us stronger
I stay positive for friends and foes. They're the ones who need it the most. I try to be the light of their lives. Just to keep them one more night. Alive. They need to know someone cares.
And I'm still thinking why. . . Why did god chose me for this struggle on my journey Who am I, why does my appearance gives the right to judge me.
On the floor with no pulse, no time to grieve. I saw him stiff and cold,     the one who had embraced me in warm arms                      just that night.before.
See the faith in your own light Do not be lead by those who want you to see what captures their own sight Fallow the path that stretches infront of you
There once was a little girl Went home to the wrong house Hid it all, behind a smile Said I just need a little love But knew she’d never find it in that place She prayed, Lord, make me a butterfly
Love me. Hold me and never let me go. This world is too heavy for me to carry by myself and I cannot deal with these demons of mine on my own.
I declare a war, that has been necessary since the beginning of time, a war that has been put on hold for far too long.  A war that is without physical and seeable death, but full of pain and sorrow.  
How to be demonstrative of positive? I suggest gladness is an evocative, And through a consequence of the causative; a presence of your highest prerogative.   It’s rare to find care in a world of unfair.
The person beside me didn't study but I heard they got a 92 seating looking at my test doesn't even look like I tried my best.
I was one in the dark, you know? Following a pace Destruction was its face Tall and Slim Dark and Grim Too much to care.   The light Was too fair   My itchy ears
  Since the moment you are created
Faith People say that we are molded by our experienes I have looked death in the face I have seen friends perish People have burned before my eyes My future was never certain Each day became a gift
When God Speaks you better listen. I’m hardheaded as shit. In one ear out the other type. I don’t wanna hear nothing no one or anyone has to say because I think I know everything.
A junior in high school, Falls into despair so quickly, Tries to go with the flow, To formulate a show, A star meant to glow, Lost its incandescence, Now seeking assistance, Is it too late?
Behind a shadow 
I wake just to hear my parents argue back and forth in fear. I didn't know what was going on.   As I listen, they yell at my sister... every denial from her made my dad angrier.
As we travel up the steep mountain, There are trials and tribulations we face That we overcome and proceed on
you love to call me thick  that must be a slick way to tell me to lose weight .  You tell me to put salad on my plate .  I heard you World , to be honest .  This pound cake is too good and it already on my plate . 
The Path
Why do I write? There was a time when I could say quite simply, Because I love it so. But since March 21st... It seems that isn't so. Now all I write about is the past
Him
I've gotten tired lately, dreaming of a something. So abstract. So tiring.
I keep blocking it out Tying not to hear it Can't face the truth Can't bear to stand it   Trying to stay strong But it's so hard to do Because I can't help but hurt
A Prayer   Thank you Lord, For darkness and light, Thank you Lord, For giving me sight.
Courage, why have you left me
Here I sitand wonder why.Why am I here?Is it just to die?Or is there a reasonFor this crazy world?A reason to be hereto spin and to twirl?
Sometimes, enough is enough you tap out before the going actually gets tough nevertheless, no one else is in your position except you battling and fightng to get through
Upon this TreeWritten by Adam M. SnowLook upon this tree,a Man hung for us to see.
God's HeavenWritten by Adam M. SnowA vision splendid of the Heavenly scene,filled my mind with an image so clean:
This Lost LambWritten by Adam M. SnowOh by the morning strike of dayand by the calm obscure of night,
To the mother, to the child, to the lover, to the fool,  
When my wings got seared off by the sun, when i free fell, saw the ashes of my hopes and dreams gently floating after me, I thought I was done, that the ocean would end my agony
The same brain, body and gender.   Having a light make-up,   We go out.   Wearing pink dresses and high-heels.   As usual...  
jump head first into the flaming inferno because he told you so   try not to sweat when he calls you a pussy   let the third degree burns be a reminder to never trust a soul  
There is a world where society tell women their looks matter more than their brains And shoe shopping and lipstick are more coveted than Master’s Degrees and smiles.
What would you describe faith to be? would it be a feeling? Maybe an emotion, an action, or is faith a THING? I see faith to be something unseen, It's like walking blindfolded,
Him
Him Something about him His laugh, his smile, something that's him This isn't like me
When I was three I watched the clouds form around my mother, I watched her retreat into herself. I watched my father leave And I became the protector.
He whispers through my being,aiding my growth as an individual.
He whispers through my being,aiding my growth as an individual.
Oh, the days are getting longer it seems. This technology is getting smarter than me! Now the sun seems much stronger than the breeze, This heat will bring my closed mouth to speak.  
We could fill an entire library With the things we never say to each other; Volumes upon volumes Of quiet "I'm sorry's" and tear-soaked "I love you's".   I told you once, a year ago
I live in this broad bubble that I all a life.  But i know thats not right.  I have become so scared of failing thatg I no longer try. Dulled passion just trying to get by 
Before proceeding, you must first understand one basic primordial idea that my family and I have lived with for most of our lives: the idea of one true God.
Why do I let the things that crush my soul Bruise my demeanor, my attitude, my outlook on life? Is it because my mind, a vast space filled with dreams of love and adventure, Hope and happiness, splendor and joy,
Everything that I have ever known is a lie. You don't realize it till someone say it in your face. I was living a life of sin. You take a step back and re-evaluate your whole life.
It rained,It rained on my parade,I tried to stop it,The incessant drizzling,The floods from God,The tears from heaven,I tried to stop it,But I couldn't, so it rained.
There are moments in the night when I wish for someone to lay next to me, embrace me in their arms, and not let me go till the moon finally takes its leave.
In less than a month's time, My world will change From the familiarity of my home and siblings To the unknown of university.   Who will I meet?  How will I progress? The infinite possibilities dash
"You did this" I think this as I try to sleep my first night at my fourth foster home that year. I am ony six years old. As that night was not cold, my heart was chilling to my soul,
I'm wondering if I'm going to heaven or hell. I should know just that so many lies people tell. Corrupts my intel. They say I'm destined for damnation. They put me on the spot like Dalmatians.
Look at me and tell me what you see. A young black educated male is what I hope you perceive me to be.  I have God beside me, my parents behind me and my family around me and I’m going to strive to be all that I can be.
Look at me and tell me what you see. A young black educated male is what I hope you perceive me to be.  I have God beside me, my parents behind me and my family around me and I’m going to strive to be all that I can be.
It’s vital to know, the stakes I conceive Are heaven or hell, nothing or rebirth But how can I know when I must believe?  
Wake up expecting, Forget the mistakes worth regretting, Stay in peace when the situation is upsetting.
She never thought the day would come; When pen, paper, and she, were one,  but what was a young foreign girl to do ? When no one could hear her silent cries. All she had was her notebook, who promised to hear.
Why can't we all get along and sing a song why must bullying occur everywhere and on the web Why can't these men be a father while the woman play both parts in a child's life
The day I gave you my life  shed tears the way you shed your blood for me  declared my love for you the way you've always shown your love for me that is when The Chase began..  the devil wanted me 
   
You may only have Two Feet but A step at a time is All it Takes.
The chill from the propeller Up at jumping altitude Runs down the body, up my spine And electrifies the mood  
It’s a love/hate thingThat I wish I could stop.It’s a Cinderella dreamThat I wish I could swap
I want to go inside the head of someone elsethat way I can think thoughts that are beyond myselfI want to know what they know, see what they see,I wonder if they even think about me.
Sweetheart, let me in.It's time for our lives to b
I reach for the canister of ash And take my thumb and smear it On my neck, like a holy gash.   I wear my thread every day. I don't question my faith and I never look the other way.  
She looks like heaven  to me She says no but that's okay not everyone can see The way her eyes shine in the morning
When we met, you were just another girl But now for some reason you are my world I havent seen you in a while but it cool My heart says otherwise, maybe i'm a fool The days go by, we hardly speak nowdays
Growing up you took care of me no matter how bad i was you gave me food and a roof and a mothers love from hugs and kisses to beatings and punishment i laugh so much when i think of all of it
She looks at it. It looks at her. Like looking in a mirror. Nature vs. Nurture. She reclines her seat As she watches the breeze Whisk around the palms And give ache in her feet.
My skin, my bones are crumbling.   My remains are becoming dust.   And from my decomposing self,   I hope that your flowers will grow,  
Feel the breeze sweep listfully forward As you creep slowly toward, That goal you see in you mind   Don't stress about the small things Just focus and grow your wings, Don't let anyone tell you "no"
You are always there...   When the sun starts its rise The stars and paint merge their glows The night's soft demise As the surrealism flows No matter how unreal Whatever reality may be
I am fragile. To look at me you would see a young woman standing at 5 ft. 3 inches and think “Of course she is fragile.” But no… My stature does not determine my strength.
4 years ago i thought, "i will never make it", i almost gave up, but instead i faked it,   I was so depressed, nothing inside, but my friends gave me hope, and i decided to try,  
I want to do it right. See, and that's my problem right there. Because in my desire to do life right I become terrified of making mistakes And turn to what the world (the general consensus) says.  
This is my life And it will be full of enjoyment So first things first You've lost employment   You said I needed you And would be there for me But I got over 2 decades
No need for sadness for the deceased  They lay in peace  They are only sleeping  No need for weeping  Just smile Your heart is strong, it could run a mile. 
Him
How well is my destiny written down That times are exact Situations are perfectly placed with the ideal obstacles That made the encounter with him magical  
I’m having thoughts, of bitterness and hate I don’t know why! Why won’t they go away? I’m hearing voices of death all around me
I've listen to you for far too long and it's time I turn back to the one who has never turn his back on me So you can shut me out put me down even hurt me  take away my hopes and dreams
  I am searching for an inspiration Something to allow me to get into action
Hope   mommy im hungry  and she replied sweetie i don't have any money mommy i need this outfit  and she replied sweetie i don't have it
As several people presented their personal projects At least five people said they were “religious” And this word was used to describe their Christian faith Why not just say “I‘m a Christian” “I’m a believer”
Ok I’m trapped in this world Matter fact, I’m trapped in my mind
Broken roads engulfed with rubble A heart apiece, blind eyes focusing Who can stand to face the trouble The hearts that burn, spurned Eager to face another day, wanting
i'm nowhere near theAlpha and Omega, whohas made all to come.
You can find me where the dust sparkles in the window from the sun's rays You can find me- there   I'll be hiding beside the curtain blending into the wall
landing lights stomp ancestors awaken themselves on my hand, belongs the nail of a great-great grandmother on my face is an ancient beauty mark, belongs to a great-great-great grandfather
God will give you time To reflect and find your thoughts, So don't worry. He has your back And guards it well.   God will give you strength
I am no one important Just a person on the street You pass me on the way to work Or school, or a friend activity   I am no one important Or so it would seem
For what you do not know could be for better or for worse. To say this one or that one or what about none? For what we see hindsight seems like 20/20 But in the midst of the rising
To be or not to be...What is it meant to be in the land of the free?Whilst many grieve in pain and agony,Searching for joy, but constantly struck with misery,Told you can be, whatever you set your mind to be,
She is...More precious than the jewels that surround her King, the Queen is flawless her love is deeper than the bluest ocean the greenest forest...
  Sometimes all you can do is stand. All you can do is keep on working, pushing towards brighter days.
My 87 grandmother has been through a lot. She’s had five different cancers, Multiple tumors, intestine troubles, and a stroke. She lost all control of her body, time after time. But she never gave up.
And I fall to my knees yet again Say a prayer I have no faith in Full of hope but know it's hopeless I'm just a bunch of broken pieces
Tonight Dear father, I put aside my greed. To pray for those who really are in need. For the children crying, beaten black and blue. I hope they get the chance, to live and fulfill their youth.
Sometimes its hard to let go
I want my faith to be like a tree, Standing straight and tall and strong, Always growing. I want my faith to be like a fire,
Lighting  struck and thunder crashed And the wind howled at the sight. The rain pounded the earth,
Love.  It comes in many forms. The love a parent has for their child. Instant. The love a dog has for its master. Unconditional. The love a sibling has for another. Growing.
Rusted chains cling to their hearts,  Darkness consumes them -- Children of Darkness?  Or are they Children born in Darkness?--   They cannot hear faith told,  For their ears are bound. 
What is my college education for 
Unspoken words are grotesque                                                                                  
Religion is more powerful than your government’s atomic bombs.   Mamas and papas drag their kids behind them down the rows of pews worn by years of futile prayers.  
Believed in what is not true, Faith is what it is, or is it? False is what I break, Truth is what I make, or do I? Destroy what I need, Create what I want, or do I?
They say the best writers write what they know, But lately I’ve been losing my mental going off my rocker all existential. I’ve been going off on points of tangency trying to crack the code that’s right in front of me.  
The heart is a lonely hunter
Who knew crossing a line could make such a change?
What is there to be said When all the pictures have been painted, when wordsmiths more skilled have woven better phrases Who am I, who am I?Sometimes overcome by Christ's curious effect upon the soul;
From today's family, mine is different  And I think that is quite funny  So many families lack unity  But my family stands strong with faith  and we find comfort in our Father   
I believe everything happens for a reason And you never know what that reason is Until it hits you unexpectedly
My father who has given me eternal life. My Lord who always finds in his heart to forgive. My God who is there for me, Eventhough, I am constantly not there for him.  
I know my value.I know my worthand some of you just aren't worth my time.
Oh how I wish I could change the past.  the mistakes I've made Are too numerous to count.  I have failed too many times.  I have disappointed others, And I have disappointed myself.   
I am silent I am mysterious Sometimes you can't even find me, but when you do I scare you! You try to get rid of me and sometimes I fade away But what's gone at this time can always come another day
The depth of his words were as thin as a grain of sand,
Through high and low Through chaos and darkness Through the depths below and when you've tried your hardest   Be still and know   All the days seem long And the hurt runs deep
It's time to let go and let God, literally you're blind without faith cause it's the source in which you see, it leads your intuition and utilizes ambition, faith creates an image so we can imitate Jesus,
****I am not bashing other religions but rather providing my reasoning behind choosing the Christian faith.  I respect all religions and faiths and believe that everyone should believe in something. This is why I believe in Jesus Christ.
They say everyone has a testimony, and a story that will break your heart. My little sister had cancer. Her hair would fall out and she was weak, so fragile that it was hard for her to walk. I couldn't understand at first why God had chosen her.
I try but the words don't come For once, I'm rendered speechless
  Your touch. Your smile. Your voice. The beauty you allowed me to see. Moments of laughter and words of wisdom ; I will always cherish.
"Why must love feel like a heart attack"?Some may sayCausing our hearts to sputter one final beatThump, thump, shhDifferent types of love lause different types
  Dark laughs at the fight
All i want to do is sleep. But I can't count them sheep. Thinking about the Shepard,
I am holding a bladeUp to my wrist In the knife all I see is lies upon liesBut then I see youAnd your little blue eyesYou say put the kinfe down AuntieOr I will crySo I put down the kinfe
Who told us that life would be so hard Our past haunting us, The future looming ahead, We struggle to enjoy and succeed in the present. I have given up the hope for my life to be perfect
Silent Thoughts Thoughts, That’s all they are That’s all I make. Will they ever be any more? Will they ever be any less?
Listen, sister, for this talk unsettles me. Stop here. Because You are not the sum of things you have made. You are not the sum of others' judgements, opinions - no.
I need a job that could change whole life And maybe then will shit start going right I wouldn't have to be worried about my moms Or my sisters and brothers crying about the lights going off The water and the cable
I want to go into business and economyMake some money and change the way people thought of meI'm tired of people thinking I can't do it like I'm just an act of comedy
Left and right I see a place to fall, holding tight I suffer through it all. God grant me courage, God grant me wisdom. To break this world's mighty wall, I'll come running when you call.
They said it’d be a change And it wouldn’t be easy; Living a life like this Isn’t a joyride. I didn’t expect it to be But I also thought I was stronger than this.  
Last year held challenges, Some that terrified me, some that didn’t. All were conquerable With the right mindset. I made my plans, I planted my heart Firmly, steadfastly into them.  
The Dream  Starts with college and hard work Thats the opurtunity to make millions  My paths not cut in clear yet but I know I'm on my way Because greatness is a mind set and that's all you
Society seems in a mess Mothers cry, while Fathers stress to be polite is a disgrace as children mock you to your face   drugs and sex aren't hard to find it seems as if the worlds gone blind
i looked for Him in the silver strands braided in my grandmothers hair. i looked for Him in the brown crunchy leaves on the ground in the fall. i looked for Him
The layered glory and weakness, The wounded and the broken, Finally receive good news. Some of the lost have been found. Some of the dying have been saved. Some of the bad have been beaten.
God, I just want to know your plan. I want to be able to count the number of setbacks I will have on my fingers. I want to know if my heart will still have to endure more pain. I want to know if I'll get divorced too.
I know that I am not alone I know that I am loved  So ask me what my faith is Ask me how I know   Or tell me that this science thing  Has put me in a hole You will tell me that religion
That moment when we are at our necks
  Watch What I Become             Smile with relish             Together we still are             Mountains tower between us
Him
God teaches us love, Compassion, Grace, Honesty, Patience, God shows us love, That we are all treasures, That we are worth sacrifices, That we are all perfect in His eyes,
A Gift of Faith A cry, a tear, a whisper in ones ear. Can one only imagine the emptiness without the faith that fills inside?
I'm weak in the flesh.Though my spirit is so willing Jesus!Sanctify me, this total depravity.
July 7 1944 My dear beloved child,  I take with me your last image. "Make her be quiet! She's mad! Shut her up!"                   Her little boy stroked her hand.
  Why do you judge me like you know me? What did I ever do to you? I just don’t understand How the people around me have gone so mad.   I did nothing to deserve your hate.
Those long nights You believed would never end, Filled with tears and fright That push you from the mend, Will one day join together By the hand of God on high, And become a feather,
These big and strong trees Have a great tunnel like view with their evergreen leaves
Eyes closed, mind focused, heart open. Her hand trembles in mine, gently. Hundreds of voices shouting, whispering, mumbling, Cries of help and gratitude to the man above. She sobs, unable to catch a breath,
At the top of the ladder is your goal. Each of the ladder's poles represents Your steps and efforts to get closer to that. And your soul plays a major part in your pace.
Peer pressure is crazy! But only I control me! So you can’t make me see, anything I didn’t already see. You say “Go ‘head, try it! It’s not gone hurt!” But I’ll be the judge of that when you’re six feet in the dirt.
Little girl,
If I could change one thing about the world, I'd change the way it's ran. It'd be a place where people weren't afraid to take a stand. In the world we live in now, there's a unanomous point of view.
clickclickclickclick goes the key board as i sip my morning tea. Spiling, gushing ,spewng my deepest trauma and heatache. My therapy, your guilty pleasure. The best job, if you ask me, is that of a writer.
Daddy, you are my heart and soul and I the same to you, When I hear "I love you" I say "I love you too". The day my life changed forever, was the day you were diagnosed. I love everyone in my life,
I don't know if
I had a dream in the past before, a woman so perfect who made my heart roar, her voice echoed through each waking moment, I would feel her touch when my body jolted.
My mother of Resolution A mother of hope A listener of wisdom My detective of crime Understanding of all imperfections   Loving, caring, compassionate
Never Forget   You Stained by bloody waters A past haunts your present being I see the pain in your eyes The beauty of humanity   Rests under your soul
Struggling constantly Through this relentless fight This battle won't kill me I will climb past this height   I'm scared of the outcome I fight to overcome it My heart beats like a drum
    Ever since I was young, I was told to behave. 
Hollow Ghost of Red Heart             Ominous with frantic rage             Yet vindictive under the Vail             Luminous as starlight nights
Breathing Just Fine             Held under water             Gazing upon him             We fight for a way out             The sea blue runs black            
I once was A girl caged in lonliness; living nightmare The devil on my back Crawled in my head
Homeless individuals sleep with dreams of what they used to be Now they have moved on leaving the new generation drowning sea to sea No education, no temptation, to get a dream fulfilled
The time has come, my choice is made This life is cruel and humanity has no hope
Dreamer, I am a scatter brained, introverted, unstable dreamer. My hope is rooted in my faith, my faith is in these cereberal illusions that cause denial and confusion.
I want a partner that is so rooted in the bossom of GOD; A partner that is in LOVE with GOD Who places GODs Desire infront of their own fleshly desires...  
The Inhibition of my mind & Body... And I think my heart
A woman who is voluminously thick with all the
"Mommy, can I be skinny like those girls on T.V?" I hear these words and put my head in shame. "Mommy, can we go to McDonalds today?"  I hear this constantly and feel the same.

The slippery, polished, granite beads slip through my fingers. A silent Hail Mary breaking through the quiet pews. The magnamic face of a Man who knows me, crests at the cross roads of the rose.  
Falling for someone is exactly that,
What to say to the ones who feel small,the ones who are hungry,the ones who have no home, whose everyday battles without an end,those who are lost wishing to be found again, for those who suffer,the ones filled with fright,those who pray to liv
I am the strange man. The man that is a boy. The boy that is a man. I play words as a decoy, I refuse to write and wrong with the same hands. So I try to write as well as I can.
Our lives are such a mess
I try to find myself, but I've been lost for forever. It's like I'm going in a circle so you'd think I'd know better. I'm somewhat lost in a trance,  I can't find myself. Took 34 pills disregarding my own health.
The light flashes. Blinks, constantly, in the dark room.
Darkness fell with innocence in tow The serene sky marred by gunshot smoke Signed by Death’s fiery signature And crossed with wails that frayed stable ground.
  Although life isn’t perfect Battles 
Little Things by Dillon D. Our selfish desires can blind us when they become our god. They make us forget all of our blessings. Be thankful of the little things. A roof over your head,
A society that tells the younger generation YOLO Live for today, dont worry about tomorrow YOLO Live on the Edge YOLO But WE are not called to live for OURSELVES YOLO
What do you do when someone is hurting, And you try your best to help, but nothing is working. When you love your best friend, and you hate to see her crying, But even when you make her smile, you know inside she's dying.
What happens when God himself falls from heaven? When the heavenly grace is stripped?
Since being a young boy in the hood My life has never been good Gunshots at night and standing under streetlights I told my self I shall rise If I put in hard work there should be a prize

When all you have left, Is faith What is left, When all faith is lost?
A crickety seasaw with an invisible old man on the other end.  You go up and down, sometimes close to falling, but you hold on, nonetheless.
The taste of blood on her lips, She opens them. It drips, On the floor, She lays, A dark pool in the midst of a glittering forest, She wipes away the red metal. Eyes open. Searching.
So as I type what I did last night don't judge me Don't judge me because everyone sin and nobody’s perfect Talking about sin... that's what i committed
I do believe in one God, but sometimes I have my doubts.I do believe in prayer, but it does not have to be said aloud.I do believe in going to Mass, but why particularly on Sundays?
Across from the ocean, I sit on the beach, I'm lost in tranquility, As my soul tries to breathe.   White clouds moving slowly, The breeze calm and still, I'm caught in the moment,
Crying to You was not what I wanted to do For You to see me laying on the ground face down caused sweet shame so I refrained
God has silver hair.
Who He Is, Can't Be Explained He Is Called Many Names He Has Given Many The Strength They Need To Proceed,
Adversity what does that word even mean Does anyone know? I think the last man to feel it
Denying your presence is known todayYour blood and body keeping us goingSeems people are praising every SundayAlthough looks like thoughts haven't been flowing

Oh Hollywood, oh Hollywood How I long for thee If I could go to film school for free, A happy flimmaker I would be   But I have no money So I must save In order to pave

Where am I going?  To the unknown, far but close. Scary yet wonderful. Where am I going?  Who knows? Do you? At times I may think to know where. At other times I may feel lost.

Spectrum Skies   From violet to indigo, green to yellow, orange to red My opinions they flow like a little brave fellow
Searching for something to hold on to, can't find nothing to grasp
People give it their all, and its sad when its not enough
                                                                                                                                                                                I always wonder if God listens,
Him
You sing him hymns, hoping he'd see you through. You tell me his words cannot be fathomed. But what if they were never true?
Where is Waldo?Well he's somewhere I knowPlaying some kind of gameMaybe its Tic-Tac-Toe?Where is your wallet?Well I'm not sure butI'm sure that if you really lookedYou saw itWhere is God?
Welcome to the Mourners' Bench Where I can not say no A place for all the burdened minds
I look up to find a moment of truth so real and divine
In Jesus, there is joy.
Depression isn’t a sickness you can cure with medication.
What do you do when there are no words to expressall the thoughts you've barely fathomed into a conscious
You can damn my God, You can wish me to Hell, But what's it to you? Just a barren prision cell? I'd take that instead, I swear I would, Is there a nail in your hand? Are you mounted on wood?
God
Eternity... Eternity, means forever forever greatful will I be greatful I am for this life given this life given is one that has been borrowed borrowed from your radient golden rays of sunshine  
You can feel your heart explode All the pain Running through your vains How could love hurt so much? How could your life change with just one touch? All the lies you told Made me so cold
Dreams are not what they used to be
I'm sitting and I'm waiting  I'm just waiting  and there are people around me  whispering amongst themselves  as if everything is okay.    I cannot figure out  why they are here 
Through my darkest hours, you are there to rescue me.
  From Genesis to Revelation He’s held me at high elevation.   From listening to the Word and going to church I’ve read my Bible and did my research.  
  God is my strength to him I belong. He will never leave me nor forsake me, Therefore I will never be alone.   He will always be there, just call on his name
blurred we were beautiful each and every one fading fast as ephemeral flowers
I belive in angles, in love at first sight. I belive in dreams and nightmares. I belive that giving up is the easy way that's why we must never give up. I belive in God, he's the only one who loves us more than anything.
Confusion.   Confusion between my legs      that goes against what God says Feeling wrong but feels so right, It sometimes disturbs my dreams at night That tingling sensation, I feel it in my core
Heavy fog on rainy days
  Twirling beacons glow warm in winter’s night   Bright white souls swiftly growing old   Sunlit sidewalks fill with chalk   Rain, feather dust and flies   A sloping sleeping heat
In the silent waves she saw herself, Lost and confused, she cried for help. Through the screams and moans that came tumbling out, The distorted images that filled her with doubt. No longer could she stand alone,
  Tiptoeing past my shame, Where once again, I start to question if I’m worthy To eat that extra slice, To role the dice To tell me if I’d ever pull off “curvy.”   Smiles watch me now;
  We are ever-changing, Constantly running through a cycle, Sometimes in circles like a unicycle. We are the washer and dryers of life, Rolling onto our second load.  
He feels all our pains Which run through the veins Of everyone.
The scarf that rests upon my head In Arabic, "Hijab" May seem to some a fearful threat Mysterious to some.   The names, the teasing. Whispering. The silence of my tongue replies
I Gotta Real Good Feeling That Its Time For Some Healing The Healing Of Your Heart If You’re Really Willing No Time For Games Just Let It All Out
I Really Thought It Was All Over & Time Once Again For My Heart To Take Cover Even Tho My Happiness Seems To Come & Go The Love Always Seems To Linger On
The sun smiled down upon the summer trees That waved back with delighted desire. Yet it shown not where she stood amongst herself, Afraid to touch the face of death.
You have to be willing to try, try again Your mind set should be, "Yes, yes I can!" Do not let fear strike in your heart, Worrying and fear will tear you apart. Don't let the little things get you down,
The ship sat anchored to the shore The captain, skipper, and crew working at her core Sails being raised and decks being scrubbed
Dear Mom and Dad, how are things with you? Has everything been alright?  Did everyone sleep tight? Me in a shell, to tell you the truth, I can't complain, it'd make things worse.  Am I under a curse?
Once there was man who loved me and who loved you. Because of this love this he did what the Lord called him to do.
I know I'm young like all of you, but I've been through a lot.
Dear Lord, And then the thought vanishes Like ink words never written on a page. The words that fall like glistening coins from my lips Lack backing in a truer currency.
I remember the first house I lived in. It was white with green shutters and chipped paint. The door was an off purple that, from a distance, appeared to be forest green, but, up close, was actually blue.
I am a whirlwind I cannot choose the place to go
All day long, I think about your class,
Belladonna     A beauty that illuminates such carnation hue   You defiled me with your sinful pleasure  
We're often exposed to music  We're often exposed to violence What you don't really hear of is becoming greater than yourself. You can achieve greatness, you can achieve more.

Faith: one motive, a solitary pebble, minuscule in size, enormous in spirit, burning the demon’s evil plot; where disloyalty to self’s morals crumbles like the Twin Towers, the disrupted chariot as horses
I will speak of truth, Diminishing the amount of lies that continue to consume our world. I will forgive and forget, Understanding that my own mistakes are equally corruptive. I will never give up,
I allowed them to leave their misery between my vertebrates, attach their lust on the wailing wall of my body Hide their redemption between my hips
The clang of a single coin in an empty tin Alerts the man to sadly look down.   He fishes out the nickel Holding it up to the light Dreaming of what it must feel like
Isolated from your peers, alone and rejected, different from the others, you feel diseased, infected.    it's impossible to change everyone,  difficult to get it through their heads,
The moon is my Goddess, for she creates the waves, and the songs that lull me to sleep. The Goddess is my moon, the Goddess is my earth, the Goddess grants me her boon, the Goddess guides me to her hearth,

Your out of line And God said to get out of line.   Are you too blind? You are no longer bound Bound by material things!   Yet tears come to your eyes, Cause your soul is dyed.
I heard stories from my aunt, who was a nurse. In a hospital. A baby nurse. I wanted to be a baby nurse. I wanted to hold the preemies, Feed them their tiny bottles. I wanted to wear blue scrubs like her

She means more to me than what you will ever mean. We walk down the street hand in hand, Yes heads turn and a few comments are heard. Do they matter?  Does it bother us? Is it okay?
Drip-drop, drip-drop My head throbs to the rhythm of the moist cave Sinking lower into loneliness, World pushing through my blockade. Jehovah- Rapha  
So I fill up my glassThe minute you past meI knew we would make historyBut the future is a mystery

When I was young I had a special friend And right from the start I knew he'd be there thill the end.   We didn't need to talk He knew my every thought Sometimes I ignored him,
The world turns dark, the lights go out And in my mind there is not a single doubt They  can’t see what I am going through They can’t see how much I need You The match in my heart is slowing burning out
For it is not I that speaks of love, It is not I that vocalizes the words in a praise or hums to a song. The creation of this earth was not by my hands or the living creatures scattered on this planet.

Accusations to self-realizations do wither convictions of mine I doubt my motives, facades, my devotions, my own I can't seem to find Oh deep inside of me there is an uncertainty that I must grip
I feel the gazes All the sages in the world couldn't take away the problems The lie they tell Is only a part of the pie they say sell When we all fell We were told that it was what we were all sold into
God? God?! Can you hear me? I scream your name every day. I patiently wait for an answer, but I never receive one. I want to her you speak to me.
I believe in the power of grace, The strength that lies within us, The act of forgiveness which can repair hearts and end wars, The power of love that dwells within a family,
Force fed faith, She refused to swallow. Knowing not to bite The hand that feeds her, But she still snaps. Her only way out.
I’m slipping You see, some days I wake Not fully realizing the opportunity I have to cease the day And instead of treasuring such beauty I become distracted by the essence of myself
A beautiful creation we look at every day, A beautiful we must say. You created the stars, the heavens, the skies You hear all of our painful cries. We don’t know all you have done,

  We are like one crayon, in a box full of crayons. There are bright ones and dark ones, sharp ones and dull ones.   Sometimes we get lost and unused. We feel dark and dull and without hope.
Our faith is our sail Intuition the wind The life we've built for ourselves is the hull beneath our feet The world may get rough at times The seas shaky and the winds turbulent
The ground beneath my feet Tremors with Soul and rational Choking forth a dissonant harmony
A seed is cast into the wind, And the process of a destined love begins. Though it may encounter much vexation, And endure both trial and tribulation, A lucky few in the faithful spot land,
I once met love at the front door! And, when I glaced it's direction Love, beautifully, smiled back at me. That was love. My first sight! I became instantly drawn to love.
       I'm lost in these rivers of peace, Hope swelling and gushing through every pore within me, Love dragging me down in the currents. When His grace oh the unfailing grace sends me drifting up to the shore, And who awaits me there?

I'm subject to my opinions      my views      my decisions But within the chipped paint walls I'm not. Within these rooms majority rules.
  If I wanted to die I would have swam the depths of your touch And if I wanted to hurt I would have broken to the sound of my own cry But with you there and I’m so far away, There is nothing left for me to deny.
  As the rain comes pouring I realize what has been left behind A picture of me with a sparkle in my eye Dreams come and go But this nightmare stays alive

The dark one tells me I deserve this pain.I desire punishment, for it is just.
A heart pure and strong A mind so quick and clever A voice that can reach out A world to be made better
My faith has been tested My love has been stretched I've learned so much But am blind to the rest My mind has been trained My heart has been weighed I've lost so much But my hope has remained
I used to believe in 11:11 wishes,  Used to dream of midnight kisses,  I believed in these things and much more,  But all that was in a time long, long, before,  Before the boy ripped at my chest, 
All the radiation, chemo, and every pill,  Through your smile shined such strong will.  It gets harder to breathe every breath of air. You skin goes pale, and slowly starting to lose your hair.
  How come we can't belive nor will we receive the golden medal of grace? Is it because we can't pin point a gift or talent, or we've ran astray? Or maybe it's because we can't

I knew that I loved God and I thought this was enough I lead retreat, I said my prayers I clung to him when times got tough so now you say I'm wrong in believing what I do
I dream of magic and dragons and fairy tales, where there are women in vintage long dresses and men in chainmails. The fairies are dancing in the moonlight, and pixies are hiding just out of your sight.

DARKNESS fills my sould. HATRED fills my thoughts. The LIGHT is too far. I will NEVER see it again. Fuzzy...different...this is quite serene. I now realize what those words mean. HOPE is written out. LOVE is within this text. I FEEL it.
We all must face At some point in our lives An insurmountable force Impossible to push aside. Something That challenges our strength Our character  And our pride.  
Wide sky Hanging like a dome Over mountains and valleys alike   Palm lined avenues Wave in the breeze Between homes of the rich and poor alike   Sol, the sun
  No Room
This fog gives me a sweet sense of what is to come, While the sun is hiding, ready to take its course. I am ready, for my story has just begun.
 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.
I am not who you say I am. I am who, I am, says I am. You say you know me, but in reality you don’t even know yourself. So wrapped up in that bottle, you forgot to ask for Jesus help.

Willingly time is not ending, Separated are the hallow gaps of evergreen trees, A thin line of mutual grace, at the face of an abandoned cliff. Stands the breath of a lone wolf, calling to the premature night sky, 
Life is a perpetual cold. It is said to cure it "Do what you're told. Don't stray from the norm, or life will suck." But I am not a sitting duck. The status quo is getting old,
"You make me feel, You make me feel, You make me feel.."Perfect.And if I'm perfectly honest I can't help it.All my attempts at being disaffectedAre utterly demolished,When faced with your affection.
From the moment I first heard her heartbeat; that I felt her move.   From the moment I first saw her; my Darling’s eyes so blue.   How anxious I was to hold her; embracing my joyous fate.
 Sometimes....Sometimes it feels like I'm all alone. Alone on a earth, filled with beings that have no human soul I feel like I'm alone with no being to relate to. I know its not true
Would you wake a lion in it's slumber?      If you stir the soup before all of its needed ingrediants are put in; the soup would tast awful. "...Do not stir up nor awake love before it's own time" -Song of Solomon 8:4
It's something that science is yet to fully explain. It's something that humans are yet to fully understand. It's something that we are born with and it lives with us in the world alongside its counterpart. Love is a mystery.
My flesh, it aches; it burnsMy calloused bare feet are scorched by the rugged earthI am wandering and I don't know where
Trapped up in emotions will she ever get out? Living without fear but still facing doubt. So many things in this world she would love to obtain, going  through so many phases but still trying to remain sane.
Shadows eclipse my weary soulBattle wounds can take its tollWhy am I to be this way?To make that choice this very dayThoughts driven by doubt revolveFears dimmed by peace disolve
  My Love,   You are my heart, my joy, and my bride. For you, I took the nails and the wound in my side. For you, I was beaten beyond recognition. For you, I lived knowing I’d endure crucifixion.

When you see light breaking through the trees; When you see hope among the distance leaves; When you see a smile that never fades; When you see stars in the darkest shades;
  I don’t write for myself I don’t often write poetry Words are use to express emotions But what happens when the words don’t come?   God. He sends a message, a plea, a vision.
So I keep pushing through..a door with the words "trials and tribulations" written across to let me in on the other side. I wont back down so I keep pushing through. Graduation is now over. Time to get ready for college.

A blue and grey feather Floating down the stream Lying on its back Head towards the sky.   A boy, just a few yards beyond Sits by the flowing current, slow Letting out the tears
 Love is such a simple word, Made of fragile truth, Often just a careless word, Monopolized by youth. As the passion burns within, It's time to take a stand, And add more meaning to the lives, Of every open hand.

With dirty hands and a torn up heart I kneel, waiting for good-bye Instead, I see tears in Your eyes, And welcoming, outstretched arms. I hear Your cries, "Come back to me my child, "My Beloved!"
I have been kissed by your grace. Saved by your son, kept by your mercy, inspired by your word.   You are a relentless lord, head strong on holding your children.

Things are changing.  It's become hard to maintain,  the connections we once made  to the people we sent are previous years with. We will always remember the way that we felt.
 
I look out into the world with one swollen eye. Some days I ask myself why haven't I died? The hurt doesn't stop. I'm not in any shock. What a life. I'm all grow up and I am free from your hands. You are not worthy to call yourself a man.
Dear The Ones Who Keep Hurting Me See, what I don’t need you to sit there like you already know me Don’t look me up and down like that right there, that look you just gave me The shit I go through
I yell at you day after day, begging you to take this pain away. I ask you why you have allowed such things to happen to me but all I get in reply is an empty silence and my own sigh. I have been good I say, so why do this to me?
Okay God, what do I do now? I've prayed and rebuked, but the feelings of everything cloud my mind. It's not that I don't try, I won't lie, I do try... But, peace never seems to pass me by.
This is my personal armageddon. My Body grows numb from the constant wreck I've become. Sick and tired of feeling alone. Trapped in a lifeless body with no one to hold. I surrendered to the cold.
Lord, you're with me every step of the way. You call my name and I call You friend. Reach up my hands to You, I give You praise. Every minute. Every second. Of everyday.
          Your existence is the speck of light which illuminates my darkness. I am lost when I can’t see you. My heart craves to be satisfied by the appearance of your face, body and soul. When you are not here, I am in deep despair.
  Life is hard, it is a battlefield. I’ve had cannons balls thrown at me, but I kept going wanting to make my family proud

Young precious girl, What are you doing? She said: "I'm giving up. Too stressed up, to get lucked up. I'm sick of the society putting me down and my "man" wearing the crown..."   Young precious girl, Where are you going?

It hadn’t troubled her at first She knew early enough that fairy tales Were for those who could afford to dream them After all she’d been stepping in The shattered remains of her glass slippers

Sometimes in life things change We watch what we used to have start to fade Drift back into outer space, like Pluto from its planet name People we used to know go as strangers as we walk by
May
May the lighters light May your heart love May the sun shine Right above us May your actions be worthy May your hunger be hardy May your drive have engine May your soul have a mission
In a world full of pain and fear she finds peace In a world full of darkness and cold she finds light and warmth In a world full of despair she finds faith   She knows not of the life outside this dark room
When the sky looks haunted and the night reeks of death Where can one turn? Sleepless nights and restless days of doing nothing But feeding my endless craves   Never satiated

Scared. Have you ever been so scared of losing it (your Gift from God) that you'd never get that lucky break, the prize you'd win if only you could change the stakes erase the fate
In a church, in a house, in a town, in a state We are just visitors no matter how long we stay. And when they start to ask questions, we pull away. We know that they won’t understand us, no matter what they say.
Oh no Who have you encountered?  Who’s done you wrong? Who’s turned your heart so…? I can’t imagine what that feels like, but give me the words and I’ll try
As long as you got breath in those bones, as long as blood runs warm There’s still a chance, a chance to make things right. You don’t have to pull yourself together He holds the glue to put your pieces back  
Everyone, No matter what size, shape, any variation of human, We all hit rock bottom. Some are deeper, some fall harder. The choice is yours; Be the one to immediately grasps at the loose dirt around them,
You got me thinking Of what’s out there and what’s inside You got me thinking Of how we came to be alive You got me thinking Of whether we contain a soul You got me thinking
Hey, I see everyone looking my way. They’re talking about my addiction. Hey, I know what they’re going to say; “It’s all just science fiction.”

The devil sits beside me, undresses from his clothes Says he wants to love me, the only love I've ever known. He kisses with his lips, but doesn't mean it in his eyes The only thing he loves
The stockings hang   As He did A tree will rise in lighted splendor     With dozens of round twinkling eyes   All iris- all colors- they hang   Children and all expecting
Bring out the blades, we're ready to go in the night, in the day, in the storm the enemy is all around, his darkness masked as light you'll see him only if you look, just like the Father, bright
"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,
Faith. The only friend that gives you hope when you've just left sorrow and ran into fear. Faith.

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
Why am I me? The air I breathe is so thick at times Days like these I just close my eyes The tears fall at the wrong times When I laugh I wipe my wet skin When I'm sad my skins dry
I cant stand missionaries No let me rephrase that I cant stand the idea of it Cultural oppression at its finest The idea that you are right And therefore everything else is wrong
It started here. I walk through the door. Did you ever glance? You never notice me. I sit next to you. You ignore my presence. Tried to interact. But, you blew me off.
It started here. I walk through the door. Did you ever glance? You never notice me. I sit next to you. You ignore my presence. Tried to interact. But, you blew me off.
As I sit here thinking about the present And the life that was destined, for my future I can't help but think back when....God first called my name I've tried walking that narrow path and it was too much for my lane
God had a plan. From the foundation From the beginning When in his palms He formed a man. And that man Would stand in his image, Every part of him Perfectly fitted.
Here I stand with a poster board in hand. I look at you as you try to avoid me. In your A/C, as you turn the radio up. I'm struggling. I am dying on my knees, when I want to stand on my feet.

Initial diagnosis, devastating and extreme, The cancer festering inside Determined to destroy his dream.
Tell them it’s not me. Tell them it’s not me anymore. Tell them I’m not quiet, That I’m not shy, That I’m the one they should adore. Tell them they don’t know.
All is not lost Blossoms bloom through frost. Can’t the impossible be just a myth? Did not David beat Goliath? Everyone faces trials, Fear, doubts, and denials. Grin and bear it.
Give Up - Richard Matthews
Now I can’t quite understand, & I can’t quite comprehend, Why anyone in this world would want to hurt my best friend. He’s my baby brother; he’s only twelve years old. And he’s unlike any other, with his heart of gold.
Is it so hard to believe, For what you cannot see nor hear Is it so hard to believe That you can be touched by a spirit that is not their Is it so hard to believe If you close your eyes

She's waiting by the door Sixteen passed she very blue no one understands what she is going through
I’ll never be able to comprehend that mind of yours. How easily your hands are able to create a world of unopened doors. Your mind it twists and turns into the surreal thoughts and images it produces.
They are the only people who will love you unconditionally. Even when you don't particularly like yourself. They are the only people you can truly trust. People that you can put your faith into.

She is Precious; That girl who has so much inside her is here She is the one that hides beneath an unseen frame Lord, Lord, you know There is a battle in the heart of that joy It’s almost there, just you wait
Within the embrace of your arms, you lay your head down, You cry out, yet there’s no sound, You search for hope, which you know can only be found from looking up, Yet your eyes cannot leave the ground,

However, I was touch by an angel of strength, I wandered through my emanate life as though My praiseful mother, who placed me above her shoulder, Never taught me more I am her only, there is no other.

There is a girl. She has the whole world a head of her, watching her every move. Standing alone in front of everyone, Pounding her chest she rips her very own heart out.
This world gives me a feeling of starkness So many places growing with darkness Setting that place on fire Cause Lord need for you is dire It's so dark they're becoming blind

He holds my heart within his hands Bending, Molding, all to plan Sometimes it hurts, but he always works. The black is now out of my heart, leaving a hole for a new start I feel all empty, sad and alone

Tackle the dreams of a thousand human beings Gaze upon their souls to serve a meaning Failure is not an option while tormented Road blocks are plowed by the strength of senses
The Sun is our future, The Moon is our Past, The Sky is the Love that never seems to last. The Flowers are our smiles, And the trees, our laughs. But, the cry? The cry is our universal question... Why?
Your love for me is everlasting, second chances only you are casting Seeking for love all I got was lust, as time past my heart will rust Despite my past you are still grasping, unto me while I was still dancing
There is nothing that can keep me from believing There is no one that can change my heart I can say that the Lord is my Savior But are my actions following my words? My heart says I love my Heavenly Father
With a quizzical frown, a child asks me Where is Heaven? To which I instinctively shrug. I often times have wondered the same thing myself.

With a new school year, a new start, but friends depart. And we’ve led our whole lives together, but suddenly we’re taking different paths from each other.
Faith; Such a simple word with much deeper meaning. How can we describe a vast concept with this small word? We are not meaningless, faith shows us that. What happens when the logic takes over,
A book of an aunt Who no longer is here Turn the pages Listen Do you hear them cry? Torn and worn down but still prized most This book that is broken It tells a tale of sleeping beauty and her prince
There is something inside of each of our souls- this desire for the things that will destroy us. We crave to behave in ways that leave scars.
Go
Go, little sheep, from this bare and desolate land. Go from this wicked place with its whips and brands. Go, press onward through the cold gates that bar the way Go, leave this dark world
I wrote this a few years back before my confirmation of my faith. Hope you like it!:
Everyday I used to see you smile, When I would see it, it would warm my heart. But now I only feel the remaining cracks of my heart stabbing my chest. I would trust you. Trust you to no end..

I questioned my intelligence And life’s depth and relevance Mom should’ve remained celibate Or at least used a contraceptive To give me protection Against my own conception It’s got me mentally arrested

Where is your faith? When is it going to be enough? Are you ever going to put your faith into me Or are you going to continue looking into the world For something that you could always look for in me
Explosions of galaxies fill the night air. Prayers of a hundred hands kneel before the sky. And I'm weary, Lord. I need hope.
God
A sublime being is watching over me, Calmly offering me peace And in silence giving me relief; Easing the pain, Erasing all fears, Forgoing all doubts And everything that’s drear.
MAN OF GOD? MAN OF GOD?! YOU’RE NO MAN OF GOD…YOU’RE A BOY WHO’S HARD…THERE’S A DIFFERENCE.
