I hate, I hate My son is eight The middle one's two For this I knew For two would Not b long for he In two short months He would b three.
You always say you want the truth... So I'll provide it But it won't be easy to understand Because I don't understand it myself. Sometimes I hate you. I just really really really hate you.
For the first time in so long I feel Pure. I feel brand new. It's truly amazing . I regret everything.
You're my first love. That's all I can even say. You make me smile and giggle and... And nothing has ever made me feel this way. It scares me. I'm scared I'll turn into her.
You blamed him when you fell out of love. But in the end, it was you that fell out of love. Think about that.
He tried. He really did try to make me his everything. And then you got in the way. Funny, ironic even. You told him to love me Then you ruin it the first chance you get. Bipolar much?
You two really are magnets. But you both have the same polarity. And maybe you were both purple once But he's red, and you're blue. But me? I'm yellow. And he and I? We're orange.
You used to always cry at school. The only thing wrong with that? You used to cry about him being my boyfriend.
You should be sorry. Sorry for cheating. Sorry for being a bad friend. Sorry for being bitter. Sorry for lying. But not sorry for existing. I'm already sorry for that.
You won't get married to him. Not yet, at least. I probably won't either, but that's only because you're both cheaters. But for now, I'm glad I ruined your chance with him. By the way, you're a terrible cook
Stop acting like he abused you. You're the one who calls him worthless every single day. Quit acting like you're all he has. We all know his friends and family love him very much.
You're not who you used to be. You know that. I know you do. But you also don't know who you used to be. You were never strong-willed and you were never really happy.
It is delicious and sweet, So simple to enjoy, When not having to worry about a thing. For me that's not the case. I love food, at least I did But the relationship is on and off.
Humans are Ignorant; Illiterate and Inexperienced. We live in a world Poisoned by Greed.
I should've noticed that you never actually cared. Shame on me. I should have seen that you hated everyone around you, including myself. Shame on me.
Hello, Do You Love Me? I know the last time we spoke you made it plain That you didn't care about me, or my pain You shoved all the blame on me And now it's as obvious as can be
Little girl sits in her room terrified, “The monsters in my head won’t leave me be…” “Go away, go away,” she softly cried. “I can’t close my eyes ‘cause they’re all I see.”
“Can we be friends?” he asked. “Sure.” She lied. (I just wanted more…) “Are you okay?” he asked. “I’m fine.” She lied. (I’m dying on the inside…) “I’m always here for you.” He said.

A bullet costs less than a quarter A life is cut shorter A bullet is made of lead A life is dead A bullet is fast A life's wound is vast A bullet hits hard
Darkness envelops me from that speck of light that I aimed to reach for Parents didn't believe in my depression and marked it off as "wants for attention"
You murdered me with whisperings of trusted secrets now in fling. Our trust you tore with rampant greed and flaunted my foolish empathy that marked you as my everything.
Nobody should die becuase of love. They should not die because of hate. People may die of illness. People may die of old age. Why kill over differences? Why kill over your hate?
Cold world Icy hatred Cut bonds Bitter dawns Lies and mistakes And amidst it all Your chest aches With the heavy Very heavy weight It goes on And on The battle

leave me be let me see for myself the cruelty i know you supposedly didn't mean to hurt me so why am i sitting here with my heart bleeding and these tears streaming let down and left down i lay praying
When I was 7 years old My mind was consumed With visions of angels The soft glow of the sun The splashing of water
When will it be ok To no longer hide From a world full of hate And a society full of lies?
Hurt runs deep Tears are shed Hearts are torn Love is dead Try so hard Always fail Bruised and scarred Blood's red trail Makes it's mark On my heart Like a bullet,
Shadows are my friends, Keeping me hidden from judging eyes. Blanketing me with promise of safety, And protection of hatred. If I can't be seen by anybody, Then I can't be hurt by them.
Live everyday with no regrets and to the fullest. As you should always be thankful for the people in your life and the ones that decide to spend their time with you.

I always wrote. I used a pen as a teething ring. But none of it meant a thing until you. Until you taught me how to bury my love in the words. You never knew,
This is what it feels like to be hurt. To have the breath knocked out of you, Whith a word or two you killed me And as I sit here typing I realize You broke me. I realize you took from me.
Ever since I was a child the world looked so bright It seemed like all the darkness was pushed away by light But my young mind couldn't comprehend all the truth After all I was in the starting of my youth
When I was younger, I hated you. I hated you for leaving, for going to serve the people instead of staying with us, for putting your country before your family. I
We have all become savages; we just don't eat each other Ask mr to explain that, Yes I will Two young men robbing and elderly lady across the street, Leaving her laying here like a corpse

forced and false fake will fall you must be real to withstand at all because smiles won't get you through hard times but peace and prayer through this upward climb stand in line
Please don't hate me for something I didn't do Please don't hate me for the people I'm related to Please don't hate me for the color of my skin I don't hate you Do you not hate me too?
Mortal the word which strikes fear in our bravest and shakes even the most reasonable minds... giving birth to ardency in apostasy but also dogma, hate, and intolerance.
Hate is a blood red. It taste like a bitter melon. It smells like smoke. And reminds me of fire. It sounds like the growls of wolves.
Like a ballet dance on blades,Your mind is a fickle thing. Relevé, going fully en pointeOn razorblades,Slice your sole to sorry shreds--So very fucking sorry.
I absolutely need Love. More than food and air, I thrive on love and attention. Amare. Upendo. Renmen. It drives me and motivates me to live life in a way that is pleasing to all that know me.
Thank you for the help Every day I walked in to your room you looked at me with wrath Any paper I gave you, it was not good enough

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.
Hate, violence Fires, Riots Fights, Never stay quiet All caused by two words, Not Guilty It's fair, it's unfair People asking how can this be ?! The pain is unbearable for most
I'm done with all of this. The shit I go through daily. The unexplained silence, As bad as the fucking words I hear. The judge mental glance a sharp dagger, That had stabbed me in the back forever.

Im sorry if you cant relate. I swear to you this man promotes hate. If you do not believe me attend a rally. Just sit there, dont speak, dont be rowdy. Listen. Listen to what they are really saying.
Every day, Every party, Every line, Every shot, Every girl, Every pill, Every joke, Every poem,
“loved ones, your feelings determine mine” this is what my voice proclaims but does my heart truly sympathize? i encourage you to confide in me but is just it to reciprocate my ego?
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.
I can see myself now Stranded on a deserted island Away from you Alone. I grumble at the sun Hot sand stings my toes The roar of the ocean hurts my ears.
Putting her on a pedestal makes you a fool. Lust only lasts for so long, so take time for yourself so you don't get stuck in the wrong. Return to your interests instead of what controls you.
He broke me, dragged me to his dingy white van I could not stand, bruised and waving out of reality for how could he do this to me Even that night beneath the stars
Thick thighs Golden eyes Innocent smile Shared desire. Frantic heart Jump start. Lost in time Lost in space. Thick thighs Golden eyes Wicked smile
I fell at the first moment of battle But I didn’t get up until the end, As I scavenged for food I found a foe But we quickly became friends,
If I showed you the happiness that you do to me, would you stay? Even just for one more day. Cause I know I'm a wreck lately, and I've been nothing but a pain. Do we have anything left to gain?
I go back all the time, I tell myself the truth and make the right thing simple. So why do I fall in the same hole? When will I see the trap and not walk in? I am not my mother.
Chasing the future, consumed in the past, With thoughts that never last Forgetting the present I see at last All I need is some Satisfaction. Shooting down time, marooning hate,

Let me tell you a story, Fantastic as can be, It's about a perfect man, He who died on a tree. It was not a hanging, that's far from true, It's called a crucifixion, and He died for me and you.

I’m asleep oh so gentle, so calm. I wake up to a touch on my arm. I jump up scared thinking he’s back, I then notice the feeling was myself touching my arm. “Anyone there?” I ask frightened.
I can feel the pain of the memories burning at my chest The tears I’ve cried a million times I felt it burning Burning passion Burning shame Burning love And hate
A million cities burning in my mind Send thick black smoke in pillars to the sky. The earth lets out a deep and mournful sigh, Its children turned so violent, so unkind.
I saw those cold streets Glass shards covered over the sidewalk in November And every time you speak a little of your soul leaves your mouth Dead bodies and warm blood with the intuition to kill
And she used to be the sweetest girl …Ambrolletta !! Is what I called her The lightest feather no man could ever catch her Made you torture when she left And if she stayed it'd be like death
Self esteem fizzles, Popping bubbles like tiny glass, Shattering myself worth, The clock on the wall strikes one, Darkness makes the room gloomy everything turns grey, As I close my eyes stars,
Just because a person is different Just because they are fat by your standards, Or skinny by others Or a mom at 16 Just because they don’t have your level of self esteem Just because they are perfect
As I sit down in the dark corner I can feel the walls begin to slide, I feel trapped, trapped here inside As if this is my last goodbye.
People say the relationship is toxic. That he'll kill me. (It surely well might be the case) But it's not your business I tell myself People say the relationship ain't healthy.
To be scared is to be alive. It is the thing that stops us, Prevents us from harming ourselves. It’s why we don’t jump out of windows, Why we don’t stab our eyes, Why we leave spiders alone.

It's such a plot tiwst, When you're your own worst antagonist. It's not people who hurt you, It's late night thoughts you drew. What happens when you're the biggest enemy?
I would not give you the pleasure of Killing you in your sleep. I would be making it too easy for you. You definitely didn't give me the pleasure. My eyes were wide open. I witnessed every moment.
I haven’t written in a while, and maybe that’s because my stomach turns when I think about writing. See every time I pick up a pen with the thought of pouring out my feelings, my brain turns to you.
Mother, I knew it. I knew you were the one to tell me I wasn’t good enough. It was not my teacher from fourth grade or The mysterious boy I fell in love with when I was sixteen. It was you.
Your beauty was overwhelming and your smile seductive. The words you used were endearing but destructive. My days with you were fantasies, and now my days alone are torture.

My oh my it's all clear. When one door closes it's true that another one magically appears. This new door has venues and deepness for days and skin as soft as the breeze on a beautiful May Day.
You have filled my lungs with your smoke, You have stained the backs of my eyelids. When they speak of love, I feel you. When I close my eyes, I see you. I wish I could let you go,
Why does every planet have a moon? Why can't these words lift up out this tune. Why are there police shooting, innocent kids, like politics are crictal? But this rhymes I'm spitting are lyrical. Guess it's the sign of the days.
Subconsciousness of memories flashing back as a motion picture

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. A disorder they called it, haha. More like a misnomer. I wonder what they think when I tell them. Some go - that makes sense, others I couldn't tell.
You tell me who to be, and then refuse to walk Along the beaten path you carved for me. I stumble along rocks, and smell each blooming bud. Why do you make things so sweet and empty?
I Didn't Love Me I didn't love me
Love is strange It can be misunderstood Sometimes it is a result of fear A drop of compassion, A dash of respect, A pinch of naivety, And maybe some caring nature There are many types of love,

There is no need. For your kind words. It was an HONOR . To have served. In the United States Marine Corps Of the Nation of my birth. My four uncles in my family.

He was nine. Hadnt experienced a thing Expect for being tortured, harassed And the horrible things that words can bring Words hurt They hurt more than sticks and stones
Hatred Such a powerful word A word that should be expressed less A word that should define an emotion But something that is wrong. You should be gone, Away from reality

Devastated and destroyed, I can feel my existence crumbling. The tension in my body, the strain in my mind, The cold in my eyes, and the black in my heart. Everything is deteriorating.
You tell me that you love me. Why don't you stop with these lies? You tell me you don't want to hurt me. If that's so, why, why? Why would you break my heart?
Your mind is an ocean, wide and wavering. Your voice is a drug that I find myself savoring. You are made up of something more than cells and body parts.
With nothing left to do or say, I turn around and walk away. I feel their eyes as they glare at me, they must not get my misery. They've never wanted to be my friend, so what would make them try and pretend?
Everything nice comes at a price So that’s why always gamble with dice hoping to rise Poverty holding us back ….suffocating us…. air tight Every single force we mobilise in pursuit of emancipation
Within myself, I hold a universe. Silent. Darkened eternity. Stars and galaxies seem distant and far As you naviage the empy planes And cold and desolate Planets that may have once held life
Kiss me, kill me, make me, want to die. Burn a hole, right through my insides. Pinch me. Punch me. watch me as I bleed. Take my heart and rip it from my spleen.
These ups and downs don't mean a thing
Cast not these doubts aside as you revel unto glory
I hear voices you see, They talk to me you know? They are all diferent sets of me. Some scream. Some mumble. One keeps going lalala. But the biggest voice, He likes to coo, Gently,
Kyle was love.When my heart was shattered into a million pieces,Kyle mended each broken fragment.When my mind grew incapable of functioning,Kyle thought for me.When my feet grew weary,Kyle walked for me.

Heavy, wet, warm, suffocation settles
The human world is a mess, A Disney quote one might know, So many problems we need to address, To end the pain and stop the woe. There’s isms galore constantly around us,
Yes somebody cares about you You dont know but might be me some people are destinated to not see How different you are just like I am Some people are destinated to see you from inside the soul
I am alone at the sea. Bound by the wind. I only go where it flows. I've only been where it's been. I am transferred to the desert. Sit on top of sandy dunes. The sun scorches my skin.
A man he lay in a pool of blood his dreams and goals all shattered just because of his color, skin color his life was taken by six shots. His family mourned for days and months
Crying, screaming, with a runny nose until your voice is hoarse, suffocating slowly from all the noise even though there isn't any force,
Hate is too strong a word, so they say;It ensnares our minds - it's not okay.
I think in pictures, not words.

I just wanted to let you know that you are worth more than what I can show or tell or teach you. If I tried, it would be like trying to encompass the sun in the description of a shadow.
With all the cups you gave,
How can you miss someone who was never physically there Never felt their touched or the texture of their hair Never held their hand or kissed their lips Yet they seem to be the only person you miss
Hate is a good thing, When it comes to bad things, But hate is for the next generation. When they look up to rap kings Who promote bad things, gold bling, and diamond rings.
They say you always know which kids have no dad You know the ones always starting something, doing bad, roaming streets, making trouble, proving the stats right. Now Uncle Sam trying to keep them in his sight
How dare you stare down at me Such cold hostilitity radiating from your soul How dare you find the notion That I am below the ground you tread I will make you consume all that I stand for
One love, oops, too late.
My pictures have been fake for years My eyes don't sparkle like they used to I try to drown out my mind with music and drinks My heart and soul don’t quite work right I'm hurting on the inside
The wind will blow away my sin Copper devils wait in the tall grass I walk on doves feet across the clouds Fallow my feelings little fish Sing about rain I sometimes wish I was a monster

They are blind,
"Who is that?" you ask as you stare her way. shes changed so much. "Why is she like that?" you wonder everyday. "Look at her stomach!" You say, grossed out. She hates herself
I've been hurt more times than I can count I've put a smile on my face when I was hurting the most to hide the pain. But now but now it's too much to bare I've kept my feelings inside so many times
I sometimes lie awake at night
I was three the first time i remember
lay on my bed crying until I had nothing left.
Here's what I do remember about this particular rape.
I didn't want to, but I picked the glass up and took a sip.It was horrible and I told my father there was no way I could get this terrible tasting st
One day when I was 13 and in the 8th grade, I had gotten the stomache flu and had to stay home from school.
My father took his trusty knife, wrapped her hands around it and they slit that rabbits throat without a sound.
I started feeling really dizzy and nauseous and was crying so badly, I could barely see nor breath through the tears.
I don't remember what set this next incident off with my father, I just remember it was one of the things that showed me just how much of a psyco nut
Coming back from the dead was always a terrifying experience for me. I hated it almost as much as the dying.
I remember wondering if my father could hear my heart pounding, then realized it didn't matter.
Have you ever been in an accident or so near death that at that very moment, you thought your life was over?
hello daddy !
When I'm low I dream of gettin high,
Deadbeat number one. You walked out of my life before I even got to learn what your skin smelt like.I'm sure if I dug way back in my locked away, too young to remember,
Screaming bloody murder, but no one can hear the cries Cannot hold on forever, can hardly put up a fight Locked inside a cold room, lying on the hard floor Beaten in the gloom, here be he prisoners of war
I am let down once again.
I stand with others
Painful thought Always Involve someone i love Never someone i hate Has the world gone mad? Are people out to get me? That could be it... Everything hurts now
she sat there wielded with a belt of grenades my mouth a machine gun shooting what i had to say sure she was pelted over and over by my hate but when she threw her words at me that was all it would take
She isn't hopeless She isn't worthless She isn't mediocre She isn't ugly She isn't alone She knows this. She feels hate She feels shame She feels guilt She feels regret
Once again I am afraid to face this day The day you left without returning
"She dirty" "She low."
I feel like screaming, My heart full of hate, Not understanding the pain, This rage can create, Hurting the people I love, My heart is pumping and racing, My words cut like knives,
I watch you walk towards the office And through the painted glass her eyes glare For almost five years your mother has held An unending grudge for something so trivial In the big scheme of things
Throughout history, there have been observers. There have been overseers. There have been sideliners. I am. The world moves on with constant motion. Oppression running wild without submission.
Don't be a brat! BAM BAM Stop being stupid! BAM BAM You need to learn! BAM BAM Don't fucking talk to me!
I’m not sure what it is about the clouds.
Think, we are living on this speck of something in space. Only this speck of something radiates love. We are able to find love in this place. We are able to discriminate and hate.
Hearing the screaming and shouting in my house, I don't know what to do but grip my blouse. I used to think "This is where it all ends", But I looked past that and started to ascend.
My face is not my canvas I can contour I can paint I can outline I can manipulate I Cannot tell a story I Cannot move others emotionally I Cannot be studied My real canvas
Do you know what it's like every day Dreading your life in every way? Fearing you'll never be good enough The minutes get longer and your life gets tough.
The streetlights shine bright, There's a glimmer in her eye, She can not sleep tonight All she does is cry. She's lonely, broken, rejected. The world has took it's toll.
I'm in a world of pain My best friend and my... ah! I can't stand this vain "Are you okay" Well yeah My heart just snapped And my friend is a dick While I just rapped Up my rage until I pick
I'm hurting so bad... She doesn't know Cause she's glad I'm not in her show, I meant life, But its the same I want a knife No more of the shame
I am upset because I still live in a world where an unarmed person of color
What if I told you That when I think you about my skin lifts from my bones and my brain turns into mush? What if I told you That when you contact me my reality becomes distorted? What if I told you
For the hatred of mankind
A gentle hand is far more fair Than a fist raised in violence A understanding reaps more rewards Than ignorance and intolerance Our skin is different shades of brown Why argue over the same color
the main door is locked running late why do i even bother to come to this place full hate some have given up is it even worth fighting for what you can't acheive
When life brings you down
The richest love from deep within trapped in the catacombs and left to die Lives longer, Shines brighter, Than these tedious old lies Meant for nothing more than to keep you satisfied
You told me life was crazy Never about the snakes in the grass You told me they were evil One bite- I would never last
I saw ribs, I saw bones, I ad-libbed, My lungs filled I with stones. I saw her eyes; Green like the sea, Looking up at cloudless skies; Bel esprit. Who; Can I be?
Just shut up! Please, be quiet! For the love of humanity, of God, (the one you refuse to believe in), SHUT UP!

Am I a black male? do you judge me by my skin? or am I a male who is black? do you acknowledge my dark skin? Ignorance will tell you alot about me I am from the hood always up to no good
Judgement and speculations Have always been passed over me Always been placed on me By family By friends By people I don't even know Why is this?
Some people judge you Most people want to be you What do I want? Acceptance I can’t change who I am This is the only life I have I will always be Too skinny
Justice for all? Damn near justice for none! People die everyday, Because the world can't control their guns Innocent people die in vain. If the police do a crime, Is it ok?
I used to see myself in the mirror To see an honest smiling face looking back at me
He who is without sin let him cast the first stone But I’ve seen a sin so wrong it literally penetrates my soul Hate of race Discriminatory remarks
We watch this time go by And maybe we grow All we can do is sigh And say, "Where did the day go?" The Clock goes tick-tock-tick And it just makes us sick The way it perseveres
The world is full of hate drenched in the cynical behavior that we come to know women are starving to achieve the level or perfecton that photo editors create children are bullied

To my desire, As I look over these words that I’ve wasted on you, I realize that I’m only causing the forests’ destruction. Why should I care if you don’t love me?
A thousand, thousand voices, Within, without, around, Whisper the same, same things,
I'm as out of place in your life as a stop sign on train tracks.
my heart was stolen when i was weak im still rising up onto my feet i was hurt but i grew stronger won't tolerate this any longer you drugged me with misconceptions what exactly were your intentions?
Smile, cry, hide Me, myself and I 2/4 cup of plastered smiles, oh I pull them off how 1/2 cup of tears without the pain, I don't want to shed a tear again
To never be perfect for anyone.There is always one person who will.Hate.To know hate at a young age,then to petrayupon another is,inhumane.From a child to now,people glare.
Sir no sir. Please leave me alone sir. Let me sleep sir.. This isn't rite please don't touch me.... I'm only 11; you're 50..
Nightmares in my daydreams,Everyday the same scene
There is no Love, only Hate It is a lie that Love conquers all The truth is Be Selfish and protect yourself Do you really want to Have Pain caused by others You will never Gain true Love and
Living in a society filled with hate;Where People are judge by gender, ethnicity, and race.Hateful words storm through the air;As I stand in silence with a disgusted face.
You preach your theories, teach your lies.
Its not my fault mom didn't love you
I discover myself contemplating my being as I linger in an abyss of corruption. Hiding from the mournfulness that intimidates me as I sleep. I was never cherished, I was no favorite of anything.
I get out of school, and I wait.I wait for the pain I know will come.I wait for the humiliation.I wait for my family.
From a far fetched view, The eye perfects the red rose.
My friend is a rainbow When the tears pour, he’s there His presence is a promise for better times He makes me glow He listens to all of my fears Being there…well it makes me feel fine.
Society is slowly falling. What has the world become? All I see is hate, Where is the love?
Don't fall Stand tall Don't let that step Be the last Because there's more to life Then that No promises to be made Of a paradise in the works (Not here, Not on Earth)
Sick heart, dripping with gasoline, fueled by the cigarettes thrown like darts the whip’s bullseye that tore her apart, innocent and caged, helpless to cleanse itself, gives in to the rage,
Tick Tock You hear a clock You ache, you moan “Why? Oh Why?” Tick Tock No one is coming There is a fly in here No one is coming Tick Tock “Where is everyone?”
AUTHOR'S NOTE: This was one of my very first poems I ever wrote, please bear with me as it is not all that great.
" i just don't have the proper training to deal with your...condition...i hope you understand." i nod, because yes, i do understand. i understand that when you look at the scars on my thigh and ankle, you get chills
I have an innovative mind One with many characters and personalities My friends are imaginary, a figment of my dreams They come alive as I write on the pages inside a blank notebook of my alter worlds.
I stand alone amoungst my friends we have our differences I belive in one God they belive in society we have our differences they all hate they mock they laugh
I am broken glass, yet you still try to touch. And I know you were taught to stay away from sharp objects.
A body in the street but no one knows how the small child sees his brother dead facedown now he will be remembered as a corpse and the child a statue Is this what we wanted
All order is broken
I loved your hands. Loved the way they worked at my back when I was sore but my god, I hated them! I hated the way they'd shake when you'd miss a pill hated how natural a cigaret fit between your fingers
He's on his knees. He's lost everything. All this pain, is inside him- boiling. His wife slaughtered and raped, as well as his daughter. No justice, no justice. There is nothing left for him.
One of the 7 deadly sins Hate is poison to the mind It turns good people crazy It's a strong word Bitter and harsh in the mouth Almost like a Curse but not quite If Hate was a person
How do you cope? How do you live? Life, why did I want to grow up? People around me, harrassing me about "how things are going" Nothing is what it seems." Kids are amazing and I couldn't be doing better"
In a world full of chaos and hate, you wanna know what lifts me up... you wanna know what makes me smile... you wanna know how I am able to persevere,
Anger corses through my veins,uncontrolable rage shook within me,I was un happy. My blood boiling cold,My eyes uncaring,words like a knife,cutting all near me.

I made you believe me… You didn’t have a reason to doubt… Why would the first words I ever spoke to you Be a lie? It was psychotic.
It takes more energy to tie my shoe Than it takes to type or say Yet, its mere utterance can draw to end Be it life or be it day. It takes less energy to type—to text
I stand behind a wall of pain Gazing out into a world of blame, that You're so quick to spue from a fernace of flames, that Your mouth claims. I stand
It seems that every time I get my hopes up,
Those Negro Boys Now you see, I know something about them Negro boys, The ones who don’t do nothing but sell weed and drugs,
I hate this body. In the mornings it accepts nothing. I puke and my joints hurt.
The path is one of these A darkened angel Or you and me Our lack there of A vacancy
The days slowly creep past me, so suddenly And as the deepest orange sunray peek upon the horizon before making its appearance.. I'm alive
How does one mend a broken heart? Let go Don't dwell on what's been It's not fair to what's now Or what could be Don't be the one to wish "what if" That "what if" will turn into "why"
Insane what you'll do to call me yours. Your soul is shrinking, your mind isnt thinking. This love shit ain't easy, it fades. It's a craze. That could last years or just days.
i've listened to it more times than i can count, but who's to say that i'm wrong. what you can see is the fading memory of me in a song. why can't i be true, why do you have to love please i'm begging you run away
A ship is sailing On the water And Nobody knows it's purpose A person is drowning beneath the water But Nobody will let her surface
Love [noun] an intense feeling of deep affection
Why is love such a crime? Why must people aim hatred towards love? When a man holds another's hand they look away in disgust

Take solace in rage
Look across the glass-flat sea
To Be Heard
"YES" she screams...
I thought about what it would be like Without you. I thought about how that would change me For flowers bloom and trees root With the beckoning of spring, And the chills of winter
I want to help you I know you are in mourning Your dad died too soon
The crack of a cackling bullet Shattered the life and the sanctum of thought Which held me up, assisted and created me But left me when I needed it the most The scream of a dying soul
Optimism is fine but realism is better Ignorance is bliss and you have mislead her Fake it and make it what you want it to be Leaving to dust all you’ve given to me
“her and she"
My mind is a clock
except that isn't all there is now is it? you hear me don't you mom? but what matters is not the hearing but the listening
I am me You are you You don't know me I don't know you Nothing but rumors Spreading like a disease Some can be true and others can be false You wouldn't know
The voices are everywhere Saying life will never be fair They're screaming at you Saying there is nothing you can do Your only escape is to end it all Whatever you do, don't give in,
Little girl lost and alone Won’t pick up the phone Too scared to go back home The bottles kept stacking up Daddy didn’t you have enough Anger grew, We all knew What he was going to do to you
Once again you have left, This time it doesn't hurt as much. I didn't even cry. Unlike the other times however, You cheated. Maybe this is what it took for me to finally let go,
You say your fighting for freedom, your fighting for America,
makeup is a breakup and makeup is a lie
I smile. I laugh. I have been described as a hilarious person, One who makes the days of others.
I am me As you are you Yet nothing sets us apart Neither can forsee Neither has a clue Neither has a heart
Empty Bottles Written by: Tara Renee Sack Once upon a time you had a life Made a family, had some kids With your beautiful wife
What have I done? The person I loved…cold, limp, and lifeless…is before me. The person I loved is calling out for help… no one can hear… I took no action. I watched the person I loved… die before my eyes. I look at my arms… splattered with bl

War on Women
We've created an army of identical twins, 318,457,385 of them today, more tomorrow. All mirror images staring blankly back at each other, unable to see the similarities,
I write to the Little Girl in the Future. In case you have forgotten... In case you have forgotten the beauty of the swirling passions of the primitive past
Hey, my name is T-Rek Ya I ain't a reject, it's all about respect Arab, don't hate, reflect
The days now pass with uncertainty The world keeps spinning
Never Judge a book by it's cover. It's different from you to the other. They're much funnier then you think, Please, sit there calmly and drink. You judge silently like they all do,
Flashing gems mount the noble crown Dashing passions paint the milky gown Pulsing plights sound within the hue-ringed hole Convulsing fashions taint the beautiful soul
Anyone I have ever loved is a ghost I keep alive in my notebookBy feeding them the ink from my ball point pen,And let them sleep between the college ruled lines likeSome sort ofInhumane bunk bed.
Listen as I grow old the Gov's mask slips and expose a past. I learned so many things that concerns me. In all honesty this world is breaking apart. My poetry is picking up the debris.
I wish you could hear what you say when you’re high.
today's your birthday and Fathers Day with everything that's happened i know you'd be speechless it's hard to think of what to say I feel like since you've been gone our family has been a mess
I wrote you a book of what's in store. on how I have always had open my front door. For you to walk in and stay with me. So we all could be one big, happy family. But you walked out and left us alone.

I sit in the dark and listen to the sound of laughter and joy but more importantly I hear the LOVE they have with each other.
I was born and you were four you looked to me as an enemy Never saw the blood we shared since we came from two of the same
Am I really here?
So you know the phrase: "It gets better." Well, for me...... it doesn't. At least....... not yet. Or maybe building so slow that even a tortoise outruns it by thirty miles. Always the same.

In our world today
You added the last bone to complete your skeleton of me
Grey face and blistered skin, Looks like she is at it again. Cold breath and shaky bones, She cuts when she is home alone. Knocks at the door, but she can't hear,
This word I hear that burns my ears This word THOT meaning 'That Hoe Over There'. The disrespect slandering the female race also describes the male who's always up for a chase.
By the light of day an angel was born The heavens cried,Amen!
Most of the time We try to look at someone else's eye's Try to understand through their covered lies But what we do not realize Viens throb from shameless drugs that mezmorize When their mama cries
Im not the same person I was a month agoMy heart stopped racin

just seeing him makes me angry just seeing his greying hair, his yellow and brown teeth that cost 10,000 dollars to replace last time his thinning body
Lying next to you felt wrong, but nothing felt right these days.
One day I hope they'll see this is just a sad part of me their hearts I do not mean to break I do it for my own souls sake I want to smile and often do except for when I think of you
Miss me like small wishes that never met the skys because hands were too small to deliver minds and hearts felt. Miss me like prayers that didn't reach the heavens because eyes got heavy and pillows caught heads.
Lonely girl is so far up above the world. She orbits around, without an anchor to ground her.
What I hate most are rainy afternoons;making me introspective,making me hate.
You held me You held me when I was strong You held me You looked at my face and told me how beautiful my smile was
Envy the Blind
I sit in the dark letting the sounds of Saviors “Rise against” pump through my noise cancelling headphones. Next I listen to Three Days Grace “Just Like You” followed by “You’re Going Down” by Sick Puppies.
No matter I hate you
Bang. Bang. Bang. I hear the screams of children,
Sweet, musky scentthat rises the stripedstairs into my nostrilsand opens my eyesto see a blurred, blue silkysmooth crashing, clutchfrom the shoving mobbehind me, intoa forgotten memory, whose
The hollow persists in the space you've wrapped aroundBut the inner circle containsEmptiness, loneliness, painLike the drip, drip, dripThe flow from my brainIt never turns off, never goes, never slows
You never hit Wetness like stripes fall Drip into regret You never yelled at me, Gasping air, the thud of the wall. Memories are set. You never lied to me
You hold me close and say, "Don't fret.""It's okay, I will soon forget".I know the words are only in my mind,But somehow this connection we have; it speaks to me.
Everyone is annoying. Their sickly, saccharine perfumes are cloying,
Cover my ears and pretend I am somewhere else That is what I do many nights in my house Will the shouting stop soon or will it stream on like a broken record? How much longer can this last?
I cannot l
"Money" is such a bitter word.
You think you triumph over me Cutting me until I bleed
My best friend is like a moon,
confident yet insecure
beat beat beating pound pound pounding Is it a heart? A fist? A drum? A speaker? Is it all not the same? Isn't everything that makes this sound of purpose worth the same?
Stopping half way across his path I leaned up against his soul and saw the demon taking hold. He took out his nine inch sword and held to the sky telling me and my wolf, we were about to die.
what is it that defines us? our bodies, our minds, our hearts, our busts, our victories, our finds? can we change? our views, our thoughts, the loves, the hates, our destiny?
I've cried I cry So much that they have stained my skin I've spoken I scream Either way, you still haven't heard me I've heard I listen And you keep saying the same thing
He was wounded in more ways than one
You say you want WOLD PEACE but your not willing to fight for the one thing you believe you think its impossible for the sun to shine on everyone a the same time I believe
You make me hate you and come close to crying My anger rushes out and I control it because I'm trying If I wanted I could let it out A chaos this would cause, we wouldn't want that now
i’ll tear your touch right off my skin, wipe your kiss off of my lips, blink away all sights of you, rip every little
my mind triesto erase you.
faces grey carved with hate heads shaven like a landscape stripped of vegetation and left to the barren ground acid eaten faces with small hard dark eyes figures devoid of the touch
What are words? but a mere creation of humans. No words can describe how I feel, when I'm without you. No words can explain the feeling I get, when I see you.
My life is unusual I hate myself completely, if my life were a story I would just delete me I'm dramatic nd mad Im never fully happy, my only emotion being anger, nd attitude nothing less than crappy
All my life I wanted to be something special A princess, a cowgirl, a rockstar, and the President of the United States

Boys from her past had already taught her "do not fall for a man, without a father."
She told me last night A whisper on the porch Her face was a smile, Masking her tears. I wanted to scream I wanted to hold her tight And tell her it would be ok. I wanted to throw something
You promise that you'll stay this time--
At first I thought the issue was me. But then I saw my mother. I thought the issue was her. But then I saw my aunt. I thought the issue was her. But then I saw my grandmother.
What makes me tick? Well, take your pick: I don't like to exercise But I like to supervise. I pour out my heart In the name of art. My dark corners revealed There is no shield.
You asked me how I knew I loved you, The words could barely leave my mouth. I tried to write it, I couldn’t. There was no ink, I could not do that to you, You deserve to know the reason,
She wasn't good enough for you then so youre not good enough for her now need me to explain? she used to be so happy so sweet so caring until you pushed her away and broke her down
They called her names They laughed as she cried They pretended to be friends with her They filled her head with lies She believed their words She took it to heart
Slap me with your words and crawl into my mind where you'll find me or what's left of me. Grab me with your hands, handle me like you had handled me. Gently,

I’ve never felt so lost, Nor felt so helpless, alone, angry and frustrated. Nor have I ever cried so much, or as often. Never have I asked “why” so many times. I’ve never been so weak.
nervous and edgy you look at her
A perfect picture of one’s life A perfect answer to one’s crime.
All of us have our moments when we see others feeling down It is our job to reach out , grab them and pull them up from the ground Looking around this room, I hope most of you will understand
we never got any sleep when we were together but it wasnt until you walked away
The hood I'm wearing The clothes I'm bearing, Is it a crime to walk the streets? Targeted because of the color of my skin. Judge by the stereotypes that my kind provides. Odious words sent my way,
The heart beats like a thousand drums When in the face of inquiry to another A yearning soul heard over melodious hums
I saw the way you looked at me, with need in your eyes Desperate for me to come towards you, and to feel your flesh against mine Every day that's what I've done, and what I had plan to do
Look around. What do you see? I see love and hatred all around me. The horrible hate kills. With sadness and pain, a person fills. They hold a knife to their throat.
The insanity drives me gradually, Until I'm forced to wonder, What is the source of this? Could it truly be that, which I A small, naive girl Affectionatly call love? Can that which

The world is not a nice placeBut not always at equal paceThe world likes to fight and raceBut it also likes to segregateThe World wants a change
If I could, I would If I could, I would change
Honesty is all I would change maybe if we all could be genuine love would not be in vain if I could change the roles of honesty maybe a liar would feel the victims pain He lied to me that's why I feel this way
Hate.. An awful, six billion ton'd word.. You can feel it build like a crescendo in an orchestra in seconds... You can hear it crash through walls no matter how deaf..
certainly you've felt life tug you, hug you, and even push you away.. and I'm certain you've seen life assert it's opinion to your dismay.. & by all means necessary, life has lead you to this point..
As I lie here naked, I catch glimpses of them. Some scattered disorderly on me left thigh, Others straight and regimented on my right.
I heard the grass is greener on the other side Only if you abide By the rules they preach to sinners Only those who reach it are truly winners And the everlasting pulsing is gone I’m coming home
Your love is cold sand. Your love is a warm breeze in the fall. Or maybe perhaps a shiver that once ran down my spine.
I felt the stab of pain From a brother in the hood One seeking to rise to fame I thought he understood.
If I could change one thing It would be so that the world could stop hating. It would be so that the color of my skin, The religion that I practice, The people whom I choose to love,

Once you plant a doubt in someone’s mind
Why hate? Who cares? It's none of your business ma'am. Don't raise your kids Then hit another man. Level out Then love.

I was asked what I would change about this world. Would I change the war, drugs, crime? No. Because all of these are caused by one thing: Hate. We hate those who are different;
I sit at night, watching the stars Dreaming of a world without scars No hate or frears No war or tears A world where no one lies A world where no one dies
A letter to my mother My mother hates me and I don’t know why We just can’t seem to see eye to eye She disrespects me to the ump degree Now I’m going to tell you what’s in my decree
Wind against these walls And the silence goes unbroken Save for my own breath How are we such strangers now So different I’ve known you all my life You meant the most to me
If I could change the world I would drain it of color Just the people’s skin Or ability to see that in each other Maybe then there’d be less hate Everyone would be with who they want to date
Only known in Love and War
This is pain is just too real The moment I got attacked by the wegded heel.
I would change the mind obsessed with pretty colors and popular dress When she was a baby her mother dressed her in the best she could afford She would sit in bows and laces
humans are selfish all to the core whether they show it matters not one bit at all sure some care but they're a bore humans can dis if they dare always seeking more
Pour he the taste of charlatans To malice my impeccable restrain. My interstice of perception is as the dove at dusk, But halted in terms of vain. My pellucid psyche now poisoned
The preceptor is the bearer to lessen My confession, And the aggressive recollection That reigns so freely Competes with the virtuous violence of my future.
I have a heart condition. It's prompted me to no longer be bound. Abolition. Can you tell me what's your rendition.. when the doctor says there's no cure, nor a physician?
please stop placing me on a pedestal
one hit two hit
It’s been a long time coming, women and civil rights, but yet we still segregate and hate. “Be different” they say, “be yourself”, but it’s illegal to do so. To love who I want and live happily ever after, forbid.
shoot me. i choose not to rhyme. oh please, is that a crime?
Imagine, A world without hate, A world without oppression, A world with peace,
They look at the color of my skin See ink running down my limbs And the illusion is set in their minds Suddenly I have a new face They spit words out Calling me gangbanger
I hate myself,I hate my wealth,If I could give,Then I would live,Nothing would be mine,As nothing is divine,
Why do we all hate These wars we start From bombing innocent towns To a gunfight in the street next to KMart
In a world full of hate and despair, there may be times we feel nothing can compare, where it seems to be, beyond repair. In a world that's cold, and no sense of right,
Many enemies and strangers
They sung.Sung.Before. They were not forced,In fact they yearned.for. it.I did not.
One thing I'd change in this world would be
You are a coward. A coward with temptations, That you could not resist The evil damnations. That leave my stomach in a twist. Why did you do it? You said you loved me more.
A disease, That no ones knows, But it stings like bees, Yet still no one sees. My father, Has this curse, He looks at his daughter, She knows it hurts.
Could I change my community? A small town, Where there is no impunity, no crime, No one to be found? No. Could I change the world? From it's destruction, The sorrows, the cries
Dejection, No affection. Depression, No expression. Happiness? No. Not anymore. No more blessedness. No more galore. Why do I still love. Why do I still trust.
Hate is H C is compassion I've lived, I've loved, I've learned Seen the storm of others While I had all the sunshine All the hatred spread When we should focus on caring Compassion
I am the one you hate and love. Everyone suspects me but no one sees me. I sit in the corner reading my book, I walk down the path smiling,
I drift in and out of sadness Explode with manic madnessI can't control your loveOr make you wish you had this But it's sad - thisBottomless hungerHeart - banging like thunderSitting up at night
I got people looking up to meBut I'm just not that heroic.It's like I'm living a double life,I promise you don't even know it, Cause I don't even show itAnd I don't even flow it
Tall hats live on the east Short hats live on the west They both play with figurines But who plays with them the best? Tall hats believe in warfare short hats believe in house
They looked, at his face in
Blank stares are given, Long live the smacks of hands that raised pains that slave the masses Yet ignored through the constant acknowledgements Embelished though it seems the hate is real...
I'm listening to the rainthe way it beats upon the rooftopsThe pitter patter dribbles its wet dropsSplashing the puddles all around me
