My father passes. With him, my world also fades. My life is broken.   All hope is now gone. What can I possibly have now? Jesus, my Saviour.   After a few years,
Stars shine brightest in the darkest of times and they were so glorious that night. I heard the soft sweet song of the chimes. The silver reflected the light.
I am realizing that I don't know how to be empty. Even at my lowest I find my throat full of words Demanding to be shouted, My chest full of pain Demanding to be felt, My fists full of hopes

Standing on your walkway gives me chills, Glowing beautifully with your astounding street flare. And the performances through the cheery nights
I am young and I have dreams, And they are bold In my mind they are vivid, With full color
These changes keep coming life is not the same as is once used to be back when I ran and played.   Now I've got chores to do and I have to decide what career to pursue
I realized I wasn’t a kid anymore When my heart sped up From the mistakes that I had made. A moment in my life, Where I realized There was a price to be paid.   A price for every action
In the middle of a forest there is a rock with moss Untouchable Inspirational the woods are a mass of needles and thorns a labyrinth of struggles
I'm better than this So why am I so sad God help me Take this pain away I hate depression I hate crying in my bed At these late hours  Gettin no sleep I'm on this path to success

When I see your face there is a soft glow, As if I was looking at a sunset. Even when your face may no longer show, To me, your love acts a comfort blanket;
Allow this vigilant past eye to say thanks, where it is due Yes! Gratitude is the best attitude Nothing escapes this vigilant eye of the past, To say thank you where it is due
Once upon a time in a land too close for comfort was a woman who had lived her whole entire life trying to please EVERYONE. She placed all her energy into making her parents, brother, kids, husband and friends happy.
I’ve never been good at starting a conversation. The idea of initiating a dialog used to seem as though it was easy . As if the books I read had all the answers, but what looks good on paper doesn’t always work once you look out into the world.
Too much on the mind but not enough to say There's something magical about writing And coughing on the foam of a latte Too much to say but not enough to see Listening to the people singing
The pathway home, will take steps to places inside Death... I will carry you, for the road after, and our hearts fall closer...   As worlds away, we soar. The new darken,
Come live with me and be my love, I want to wear it like a glove; I will give you all that I am, My heart, my soul, with no exam.  
beams of light peaking from behind the clouds reaching your face warming you up it's been cold for so long you enjoy every gleam of light you get   you smile, having the feeling
Robbed of a sweet childhood, you stole my innocence. I wanted to save you and you punished me for loving you. I wanted to take your pain away, you wanted to intensify my heartache.  
Reach the sky, trust the sun  and crave its kindness. Rely on the orchestra of rain to quench your thirst. Depend on the lavish ground to stand tall.   When Winter dethrones warmth,
At a time When chill called for a coat and the youthful light was executed I watched the moon impale heaven  and stars melt on waves of the bay.   At a time when past became future
I'm scared of the manipulator I'm scared of the puppeteer I'm scared of the demon I am so scared of you From the second I saw you I knew I knew your tricks I knew how you operated
My time has come, my head just hums I knew it was time but only I knew it was mine   The stage was free, it was just me Fear controls me as I always lose,
Hope is a magical word, Happiness fluttering aghast in the wind Blowing fears and uncertainty behind me I see a world reborn Relentless to strife As if it has cut away my anxiety like a knife
Why do you fear To know their hearts? And what you are to them? What do they see as true? Whenever they look at you  
I was hanging on by a thread, Fear grasped on to me I hyperventilated, thinking of it made me sweat. I was never strong enough, Bold enough, Courageous enough, To leave the cage I was bound to.
Like a mystic, he lifted me by my flexing throat And read my blood for signs of death. Morse code against my neck told how I was to die. I saw the slides with slivers of my spirit.
Fear! Fear! Fear! Fear! I dance with it the most Dreaming so deeply that nightmares can be imagined Making aspirations turn into imaginary ghosts
I stood firm on the sands of time. Mind fresh, troubles having no rhyme. What did I have back then to lose? A new stage of life to bemuse. I speak of my first days of school. proceeding I knew not one rule.
Syllable after syllable... Love flows from a desperate heart Into the crisp, tense atmosphere. Rivers could not compare. The chains disintegrate; Ash flies to the nearest patch of crumpled soil;
Everybody always says to take the road less taken, but that roads been taken before. Everybody says be careful the choices your makin, but i swear that they made em’ too.
there's a joy in the unkown in the things that people hope to dream  there's a joy in htings that people hold dear  there's a joy in what people believe 
It all started years ago When I decided that I had to let go of my old life And leave the world of strife I had to let my life escape me I had to be free.
When I was a kid My opinion meant very little to others I was told that silence is better than to be heard This became a problem for me Because society constantly made me out to be the enemy
I remember a cold, lonely feeling, One that lingers and laughs at who I be, One that has followed me, only haunting. A heart sunken low, farther than you see.  
Detachment from sentiments It's not easy I must confess Pressures all around me everyday trying to compress I'm getting really fed up no longer trying to impress
                      When I look at that face there is nothing in. This world more clear then what I see, this is someone who’s achieved nothing. A being so afraid to change it does nothing but stare.The embodiment of sadness and anxiety.
To the life of the naked eye, both your skins are the same but to me, neither strain is the same. One call with an arrogant whisper the other with a sweet knock. The whisper quiet and simple had me working to my knuckles.
It is not that deep It will cool you off It makes my hard shell become soft The dangers of the big blue The one that cleanse you
Manic has me acting crazy Going nonstop Getting things accomplished With no desire to stop My mouth goes a mile a minute I just can't stop talking Pacing back and forth I just can't stop walking
Why do people suffer for no reason at all I try to pull myself up but I always fall Right back into this pit I can't escape Tangled up in all of the red tape I need a pair of scissors to start cutting
Some minds are full of sunshineSome minds are full of joyBut happiness doesn't comeTo every girl and boySometimes there's cloudy weatherAs far as the heart can seeStruggling through the stormIs all that's left for me It's raining in my brainThere'
Pull my strings and make me dance. Oh, puppeteer. Help me put on my mask and hide. Hide behind a smile, hide behind a frown. Just don't let them see what I really feel.
My mind is a desert, dry and barren. Any chance of hope in simply a mirage.   My mind is an ocean, calm on the surface but crashing waves in the deep end. My feelings drifting away and drowning.
Tall cliffs and whale bones, Our secret place that’s all our own. Hands held, hearts cradled. Eyes shut, fear of loss and pain. It all came to head that day. Back to the beginning,
The darkness swallowed me whole I was drowning, struggling to breathe I reached out trying to grasp onto something, anything But my hand simply went through the empty void I opened my mouth to call out
I've seen a lot of fucked up shit Nothing scares me anymore I want to be with you through thick and thin Right by your side all the way For next to you I will stay You help me be the best I can be
The tired Sun rests On waves and pale sand, as the Moon waits for his turn  
Butterfly, small, frail Wings folded, paused in thought; Peace for a moment  
the echo of strings from the busy street it rings as rosiny dust fills the air a melody, calm, slow, almost still a lone pigeon stops to stare    
Water droplets fall from the sky, flowers yell with excitment, people scream in sorrow. But little do they know what makes one grieve could make something else grow.
We see the stars not empty space When looking at the nighttime sky; Dark will not win, it won't erase.   We turn our cheek, sun on our face
Up on stage all lights and eyes on me and me alone Bare myself, my soul Choose me  my quiet heart voice whispers Thank you, next Callbacks Pitter-patter, hope List is up
The world is so beautiful when you are young Full of so many possibilities that fill your mind and fill your heart Daddy says I can do anything when I grow up,
What is failure? For me, failure is unhappiness. I want to be successful with my education to form my future. Will my future be filled with happiness? Or will it be filled of missed opportunities and regret?
I think I am happy I smile and laugh I have friends I have family but... I am sad I am stressed I am scared and I am worried but... I am strong I am independent
Love is not what I expected it's really reckless never meant this word so much  I'd put it on a necklace like if this person did me dirty then i would neglect it but everything she say is special
At thirteen my heart had never been broken I was still dreaming big dreams And I was still outspoken I sided with hope having no concept of doubt
To belong,  To be loved, To be heard,  Each desire fights.   Human, Self, Me,  I.   Unpure, Unworthy, Rejected, Cast aside.   Tears drop,
A sweaty finger slips.Glaring surface of the piano keystares like a wide open eye. 
The thoughts were swirling in my mind. Would they be funny, cruel or kind?   Would I be ready for what's ahead or wish instead that I were dead?  
The expectations set out before me 
Walk along the tight ropeThat stretches over the abyssParalyzed by possibility And impossibly conscious 
Overwhelming black White fire rim beckons hope  Pure nexus of light 
TO MYSELF     What thoughts are these that plague my mind? To no end will they ever find They are the naggings is my ear They are the voices that I fear
A poem for the days that you feel so alone the days you feel lost even when you are home A poem for nights when your tears pierce your pillow when your head hangs low like an old weeping willow
I’m sitting you down here today because we need to talk. You know what? I take that back. I need to talk. You need to listen.
Fear. The mess of tangled thoughts, mangled anxieties, strangled shouts That invades your brain On quiet nights.   Fear.
Let’s pretend there was a time where life was always easy where love never became a war, and hope would never leave me.   What does it look like?   How does it feel to never be afraid  
When I was small I would believe That Fairies surrounded me And protected me From the bad But when I grew My fairies turned to dew And formed my tears And leaked to the ground
If you were here I would give you a big sweet smile I would tell you how world is, I will teach you how to dance Even take you in my arms, everyday my sweet child
The creatures scream and shout, From the winter boondocks of my mind, Oh, the things they scream about; Their gnarly, needy hands, Desperately attempting to grip my fate and my future,
The past is immutable  They harness each theorem from my mind  
In my dreams Is the only place I can be with you Without remorse Or pain In my dreams I am full of life And love And hope Happy And home with you
The snake of life Curls around the corner Is it venomous? I won’t know Until I’m too far To turn back But I keep walking
Nerved to a breaking point, I walk alone in a field painted in black blood, spilled from my childhood. My knees shaking, and my tears lit by a full moon,
Oh my heavy heart Racing heart Defeated heart.   Knees weak Eyes bleak   And oh how desperately I seek,
Letters bleeding bodily into blank sheets Whispering wildly in her mind Flowing creatively through the ink Mind forgetting the outside world Only imagining the one within Wishing wholeheartedly to go
The jump they talk about is not literal. They tell you that you have to jump. To take that leap of faith.    I took that leap once. I put my heart on the line And I let people see my pride and joy, 
you took away two years of my life. i was locked inside the confines of your walls and weighed down by a sense of hopelessness.   i fought with every breath to be free of your chains.
ME:  I'm alone and I feel like I should feel worse but no matter how hard I cry I don't feel pain I'm alone but I feel more alive I can sit and I can breathe and I can watch
This little light in me Lost between the forgotten colours Stuck in the never ending waters Drowned with the words in the wind Cries with rays and lightining and swords This little light in me
Everyone says that change is hard However necessary to sustain life. It takes persistence when your way is barred. It takes diligence and a bit of strife.  
Holding onto my hopes Yet I'm still letting go. Keeping all of my faith, but the demons, they know.   They drive me into the darkness, and I feel so alone. My hands feel so cold
Here I am sitting under the tree Can't stop thinking about who and how I used to be I know this isn't right and yes it doesn't feel right for me And I've been drinking myself to sleep
You are indeed an awesome enchanting giftPlease stop walking in a field of griefLife's sometimes wicked and full of prejudiceBut remember you're lovely amidst these tumult and hasteOur life isn't always a happy feast
Stupid, fat, ugly That's me It's what teacher said, what mama said, what the kids on the playground said It must be so Who am I to disagree with the masses?
Layers of mixture You build them up Over and over and Bake at high temperatures. Each part merges: A chemical change that can't be undone. I learned that in school.
Springs under pressure: pushed deep, they rise up the highest. But only if they keep on pushing straight back.
you were just laughing, no, the both of us are laughing. telling stories to each other, like no one's ever shared a story.
Do you believe in miracles? he once asked me riding our bikes around the Han River
My friend, you betrayed me. What relief there is in that simple statement! Your actions so entirely obliterated Your pillar of my world that your betrayal Has lost its sting and I am left without a doubt:
how did I overcome one of my fears?/well, there were many days of failure./days of grief that destroyed me./days of sadness that buried me./days of darkness that blinded me./but, between the hurt,/the pain,/the suffering,/there were days of joy./d
You sweet wandering child  with your soft, kind smile and hope-stricken thoughts oozing out your pores and  infecting those around you-- Tell me, how have you maintained your innocence in this

I never know what you are.  Because every time I see you, it hurts a little less.  You are everything and nothing Everywhere and no where I never know what you are.  Maybe I’m in denial
What do you believe in?Do you believe in the sky?Do you believe in the things that pass you by?Do you believe the answers they tell you, when you ask 'why'?Do you believe in truths or in lies?
 Have you ever just laid on your backFingers in the grassAnd your heart in your ears? A thumping song in your skull,The pulse and vibrationOf your hopes and your fears?

Hi Honey, I won't be home for dinner. Even though you made my favorite, I am working late at the office.   The boss was on my case today.
I look out the window snow is falling soft, fine I feel so many feelings that burn me inside Ever since I was little they taught me not to make waves They taught me to follow the rules of the game  
To the days...   I’m going to take you back many years, back to when you had very few fears. Back to the days of seeing isn’t always believing, and being promised candy is always deceiving.

I am here standing in the darkness. It is pitch black and cannot see a thing.  I stretch my hands feeling for something, anything. I hear a blood-curdling scream that sounds like a high pitched whistle. 
This is not a war story but one of victory. I can hear the freedom bells ring and my heart sings because once I was a captive now liberated by the King. But that’s just the thing I wasn’t always free.

The stars in my eyes They’re fading dim The smile on my face It’s wearing thin   The weight of my heart It’s too much to hold It’s pulling me under I’m drowning in cold  
The moon is round, And ice-cream white. I sit outside, and it feels right.  Finally, I can breathe out tonight;  There are no problems Lurking in the night It feels so calm and so gentle;  This is exactly where I need to be;  Not tucked in bed, pr

Why bother living I have a friend who smiles brighter than any star you will see in the Milky Way galaxy and everywhere she went, she made sure to make others happy but... She wasn't happy herself and eventually became suicidal.
Do I really have someone to lean on? Or is it different when I'm gone? Do they actually treat me as a true friend? Or do they kill me when the lights go dim? The truth is a hard thing to come by
I am stuck living in a world where they try to ground us when we say we dream of flying away.
To understand why it exists, you must know its history. Having experienced the devastation it leaves in its wake, understanding its control over my life was no easy feat.
Why is my mind so blank? The colors that flash before my eyes, they mean almost nothing to me anymore I used to dance in the soft orange of a sunset wade in the blue waters of the distant ocean
Let the tears pour out of my soul For I am burdened An anchor of pain has settled in me.   Optimism far from sight Inundated by life’s sorrows Scattered anger and solid sadness

Sometime I feel like your hate is    more powerful than my voice. However that is only a feeling, a feeling that on my darkest days can tear me in two.
I want to genuinely smile and have real friends that make me laugh.. Even more than that - I really want to get my life back on track... But it's hard to have hope for the future - cause I just can't let go of the past....
