You can't beat ignorance with a fist...something I was told  But society begs to differ as if our once warm blood is now cold I try to stay positive but negativity resurfaces every chance it gets
Fear. A giant wall built faster than it can be dissolved. For every positive thought there seems to be ten fearful ones to drown it out. At times it seems easier to fight fear with others by your side.

This is a recorded performance at the Bite of Seattle 2017. I will type up the lyrics later.
I flick a cig and it lands on a leaf, Burns to the ground and spins my beliefs, Here is where I see a glimpse of hope, A visual summary.   Time and time again, I see this reflection,
Standing at the top of this hill, I sit, stand, and laugh at hell, Thinking, "What a perfect reflection we see of ourselves."   With respect, "I know it may seem cold to say just what I see,

I. The first day I realized   freedom is not free without a cost,   I was thirteen— when we read To Kill a Mockingbird and I could not help but think  
One day the sky roared the ground shook  the veins of the Earth began to crack they erupted  the sky howled the once crystal clear waters were now replaced with tears of blood...  
Lonely cage lonely world lonely someone  lonely girl the hunter spotted  his naive prey he lick his chops and makes his way “because I love you”, he says with a grin

Peace has been forgotten lately so she’s retreated. She hides behind the curtains, alone in the dark like a burrowed mole. She keeps hoping her absence will be noticed.

Wind, to me sing Your lullaby, Your comforting tone of peace.  I am not,  Could not be, alone Amongst the presence of the breeze.   Tell me secrets, Fear not, song, 
If I were to die today,  Would you, darling, be okay?  The love I feel For you is real And does not need a breath to stay.    If the heavens were to shake,  The earth beneath my feet to quake,
Let this moment last forever, To die in your arms is to rest in peace. Gently kiss my pulse forever, A shudder of the love you give to me. Every touch you press against me,  I return to you with lust.
It's not a trial to slay a doe Among the forest floor and snow, Enchanted by the final breath Echoing from the chasm breath. A soul escaping from a snout,  A final breath struggles out
Now
You will leave me, we will part, We will bid our last goodbyes.  There will be lonely nights, And days of missing, But not now.  Because right now I am here, And you are here In my arms.
RIP
Rest in peace: To the person no one recognizes,  Dying a death, a lonely death. Rest in peace:  To the skinny girl in Africa; The starving didn't get to her as fast as the AIDS. Rest in peace:

I loathe you, Thief of waking hours. Good terms can't be renewed, With all the time you've devoured. I want to see, think, and feel; I want to spend my time pondering what is real.
I may be lonely, but I'm not alone I may not be liked, but I'm loved I may not be remembered, but I am not forgotten I may be sad, but I have joy I may not have any friends, but I got Friends
I see red rivers of blood not merely puddles You would think that this is a horror story But this a contiguous continuous struggle   America you are a bully

What worlds lie behind our reflection What variegated beings dance among our fate What truth is there in resurection What love lies amidst delphic hate
A girl writing words A questioning heart Accept it Accept it Open your hands and release Watch it fall  A brief moment of satisfaction  Destination of full acceptance
We live here in the earth, deep in soil, blood red in clay and skin cresting the sky, we inhale. We are young; Face coated in oil and litter, fumes halo our head
Let’s go back to times of peace.  Times when women didn’t have to fear walking alone in the dark just to go home, And children didn’t have to fear their lives while learning how to read and do math, 
Gun control Something that's important  Our world is at stake Brothers Sisters Murdered At what cause? No control

Dear You,
I often reflect on simpler times in my life. While attending my elite private school on financial aid, my 10-year-old self would buy candy at the CVS and resell it on the playground to my classmates for a profit.

They said you died in the war that wasn't yours. They said you fought a fight you didn't start. They said you fought hard not to fight

Air
The air can blow us away, But we can also blow air. We can create air to use on others, Yet air can not create us to use on air.   It is tossed around,

On the day my little brother begins to see race. I'd like to think he will be ready for the talk I'll give him. I'd like to think he will be ready to carry the weight of all the self-love I will place onto his shoulders.

I don't believe in "love"     I don't believe in soulmates      The way others do I don't think any relationship is perfect       I think "love" is a tired subject  I think too many people spend too long

The story begins long ago, A new world they called it, Ready for civilization. Like a diamond in the dark, Its heart began to pump the blood Of freedom.   Freedom from And freedom to,
Another gust of wind arises, awakening the silent world.   The trees talk with their rustling ferns communicating with an unknown code.   They speak of fear and plead and pray.

Make America Great Again, America was Great.   America was Great, January, The third friday, The 20th,
We left our hearts  to live in our heads. It was supposed to get easier but compassion is dead. Driven by money and heavy with pain; The blood on the ground runs in each of our veins.
My America is red; Cherry lemonade by the side of a pool In the summer of my childhood Lips stained with sugary popsicles and fresh watermelon.   It is red like Coca Cola; The kind from glass bottles
i stand among the people and cannot help but wonder how the manner in which we think halts our spectacle of justice  
She is a land mass like no other, She is the Nation of Power, She embraced this misfit foreigner, Like a caring Mother She molded me...  molded me to pursue The American Dream.
You are blind.  Do you realize our shape? You are misfitted, who are you, one of a kind? No, I think not.   You do not come together. Instead, we're all the same but yet we are separated;

America, the home of the free Founding Fathers resisting a tyrannical power Oh how we brought them to their knees And now, here we are, at the end of our nation's hour With the violence taking over the world
A ballot for the bread line A ballot for the state A ballot for the empire Will end the human race   A slave with no chains A bird in a cage I say we take it all down And wash it all away
That soft, kind emotion is what I long for. That thing that is so precious not everyone can have. I yearn for that feeling one day, I desire that feeling. That feeling I know is warm and gentle.

America? Known as a nation reborn, Through war and tragedy we still uplift our hopes. We take each other by the hand urging them to hold on, There are the men that choose to face each other causing hate and struggle.
In a world where nothing stays the same Either for better or worse America could either lead to fame Or it can lead you to a hurse Aren't they both the same? They seem to be a curse
Close your eyes and submerge into it beck and call, Do not think just fall. Do not wonder just sink, Fill a cup of it and drink. Forget it all and give into it, Sing its song, Find comfort in it,

America flies, but we need to soar. We strive for higher, but pull ourselves down. We look to the left; we look to the right, When the answer is meet in the middle.  
Eve
Four and a half years after you came into my life you are gone from it One year of silent staring Seven months of friendship One year and four some odd months of dating And the rest in between, Well...
  Faces facing forward, Focus Fixated on the Flag. God Bless America, Land of the Free and those Good-for-Nothing Mexican Scumbags.   Hand over Heart, Hand over Ears, over Eyes,
Will that new car make you happy? Can the latest and greatest phone  make you feel less alone? Materialistic things we want give us a smile. But they are merely just temporary tattoos that
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 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.

2016 was the year I learned the definition of an anachronism, someone who doesn’t mold into their own time period, as if they’re some alien from another planet, a time traveler indefinitely stuck in the wrong century.
I live in fear That one day One day We will die No, not just one All of us. I Live in fear Knowing that
We’re in a world of media but no communication, Called the new generation, millennials, blind from our evaporated cell phone eyes, teeth broken from our coffee our vision plastered from heroin,
Quiet Absence of sound It replaces the noise Emptying my mind and choking it Silence  
 In a vision of hardened hearts and blinded minds;partaking of the precious fruit may seem like a waste of time. I bare the sweetest fruit in all the earth.Nothing can compare. I can satisfy your thirst and hunger for relief from this world.
I am a part of Generation Z and amending society   I wonder what waits for me after this inaguration I hear voices in protest and anger
I want peace Not the kind of peace that is Fabricated, constructed or tainted I want the peace of the meadow and clear skies and a river near by The sort of peace that lets you breathe
can't we scatter our love like seeds in the spring  and watch them grow and hear the birds singing  and as the passer-by smells  newborn fruit  it will give them a reason to follow suit.   can't the love we accept be the love we give?  the hungry
Our skin is not as white as snow Does this make us worthless? A lot of us grew up in single parent homes Does this make us inadequate? We commit the same crimes But why do we only get the life sentences?
If I died, I’d cry But if I didn’t, then I’d never be alive I think I’m sad sometimes But other times I think that I’m just lying I like to sing out loud about death And feeling bad, and never being their yet
I can't stop thinking about you. Completely innocent, we fell asleep together.   Laying next to you under a big blanket our legs brushing against each other, our faces less than a foot away.  
You are on the Road, the Road gets you to where you need to be. It does not matter how many potholes you hit. It does not matter how narrow the Road appears.

Ripples of a Third World Heartbreak My eyes will open And I will see the vibrant yellow paint that has coated the walls of my room
The attack of a great fiend, As everything comes to an end, Black smoke fills the sky, Tears fill swollen eyes, Innocence disappears, Through the walls death peers, Fire burns at all costs,
I've been blind I've been blinded I've been so blind that I can't see the signs  I don't notice the signals  I don't know what you want Hell I don't even know what I want 
We believe in the constitution, even willing to bet our lives on it, yet we aren’t even sure it’s actually complete The equal rights amendment has never been truly ratified
A year ago, I was not me. But who then, have I come to be? A year ago, I had the same name, voice, and face I wore these same clothes and lived in the same place. I have not gone through catastrophe,
In a thousand years when wishes are our currency and death is but a temporary, tactile illusion…   where will love find you? Will you find her by the willow flowers or underneath the daffodil tree
The world anticipates the new year to forget what has gone past but in 2016 we had many firsts and certainly many lasts   Now we came into the year expecting a fresh start
Our thoughts and prayers are with you say the living to the dead  But no one acts to prevent those souls from laying down their head  "I can't live without my precious gun, it brings me too much joy", they say
When I think of home, I do not think of walls and floors. I do not imagine an occupied dome With some windows and doors.   Home is where love is felt. Home is where you learn to smile.
  Sadness reigned over her 3 years of pure sadness Nothing, she was nothing   With one moment with one word She is taken back
Sometimes I feel like the little girl inside of me is screamingScreaming because she’s hurting & doesn’t know how to communicate why or how she’s hurtingScreaming because she wants attentionScreaming just because

I felt like it was happiness that swelled and swirled in my soul But as I dug deeper there was an impediment much worse, myself That's when the battle began The battle I struggled to avoid for so long
What has become of this wretched world? Spiteful jealously, countless wars, Muderous hate killing innocent love Many crimes taken out by two-faced criminals The world, driven to destruction and chaos
So much has transpired in under 365 days.    My life seemed to change every 24 hours.    On the third month, I grew in age by 1 year.  
Though your voice may be small And even though the world looks as though it's fallen on deaf ear, I promise someone out there is listening. They can hear you,Keep talking.
Live in your bubble for a day Not for a lifetime   Look up and see the world The world outside your own   That is the world you live in Not the one you've created  
You’re making me new Giving me a new groove. Wiping clear the past, Correcting us with Your divine chast. While the rod de God hurts
This is it, we have won. But in reality, the battle has just begun. My brothers and sisters, together we stood tall. But as the fight continues, we must promise to never fall. We camp in glory, we camp at peace.
How the flower sits so brightly lit How perfectly it fits how perfectly it sits wading in the sun always having fun it goes along with the breeze and so do the trees and so do the leaves
The wet soil crunches with every drop of water that pellets the ground. Leaves bend to make way for the pouring force from the sky.   Thundering above the ground,- Booming with loud claps of sound and light,-
One day, the veil was blown away. And I saw Him, like the flowers in May.   His eyes were bright, deep,

An unplanned gathering,  Turned into a landmark event.  Ocean waves become steady heartbeats. 
Steam rises from underneath the sidewalks. 
Welcoming warmth after months of harsh ice all things once dead feeling alive again regrowth, nourished by the sunglight everything in greens, yellows, and bright blues.  
Where there is peace there is inspiration stillness imagination Where there is peace there is love like in a mother's womb a natural state quiet warmth  
Looking through my window, seeing the clashes of tropical view As the heat hugged my clothing tighter, my memory of the eclipse smile all together   Waking up like a restraining order, as the clouds walk past my house
What would you change? A blind society blessed with vision through knowledge While screens worldwide buzz and ink splashes on paper Spreading gossiping, Hateful,

The past twenty four hours I have been in a state of disbelief. I missed a day of writting poetry and there is no source of relief. A constant state of grief. Now, this day that has been granted is now a day of redemption.
  If the only thing to fear is fear itself I find it funny that I'm so scared to be Courageous. I am most scared when no one expects me to stand up.
I dream one long, dark night a dream where darkness has overcome the light.   It's a nightmare In a funnel where I cannot seem to get out of
Why are we people subservient to the self-servient nature in us? We need to set our minds on each other and fill our hearts with trust So that we can maintain our grassy plains, Cultivate creativity, 
Exhaustion seeps into my bones, The crisp morning chill sends daggers through my veins  But I fight it, urging myself to leave my bed of cotton and clouds
Society has become a warzone in itself. The enemies are your deepest, darkest secrets and the negative opinions of those in the surrounding atomosphere.
“Namaste, I say”   Tension in my shoulder,                 Strain upon my spine. Worries trapped in my brain, No time for cloud nine. So my skin gets colder…
There is nothing quite like getting in the car while it rains. I turn onto the interstate, and set my pace at about 70 mph. I love the sound of each and every rain drop falling onto my car.
When I feel despair rise in the back of my lungs And the grip of it strangling me from within Then I feel the call of my siren Beckoning me for a midnight meet

My hair dances in the wind, While the sunshine warms my cold skin. The apple red leaves, Crunch softly beneath my boots. The birds singing their songs, Make my spirit float up,
Going outside makes me feel good I would spend all my time walking around if I could strolling and observing is what I do and breathing in the fresh air too, Minutes and hours pass by How fast they go, oh my!
The low sounds of the blowing wind seeping through my slightly cracked window. The scratching of my dog’s nails outside of my door so I can let him in.
Emerald and aqua, then scarlet hues A streak of pink or pastel blue Colors swirl together with beauty and grace  Pencils meet paper with the sweetest embrace Everyone warns "Stay inside the lines"
The Sweetness of Summer is a distinct flavor.
We are shot when we are compliant  We are shot when we are defiant  There are mothers crying There are children dying They want to keep us institutionalized I know what the Germans done 
Lost in the land of backpacks, bullying, and excuses I just can't take it any more, I'm a complex thinker in a simple, close-minded land The bland robots walk around with the same daily routine
People have one best thing in the world; usually a noun of some sort, person/place/thing. It could be a book, or a animal, or the library. I'm not that much different, I have a noun like everyone else.
When I have grown old, And my time has come to an end, I will leave this place.   When my job is done, I will spread my wings and fly, Fly far, far away.
I said, "How long will it take?" I mean, we've seen the same mistakes Ain't it crazy after all this We're still waiting for change And the faces are the same The pain, it still remains
The cold breeze caresses my faces as blades of grass gently prick my back. The little voice in my head instructs to inhale and exhale, to relinquish any worry, frustration, or hate. 
Sneakers laced up tight, Water bottle filled to fullest height. It may take a drive short or long but Always, I long to take a hike.   Nature beckons me to explore;
"Our thoughts and prayers are with you," say the living to the dead  But no one acts to prevent those souls from laying down their head "I can't live without my precious gun! It brings me too much joy!"

Imitation is suicide Why walk when you can fly What wakes me up early to greet the day Is turning on the news and hoping to see a change But all I see is children in chains And sand covered in brains
Fallen Shoulders Once Raised High Gardens Growing Up like Vines Flower fields place their Roots Deep within the Spine they Loop Beneath Between Around About The Cord that Dances Up to the Crown.
Leaves of gold, leaves like fire They hit my face and the taste was bitter But I laughed. And the sunlight poured down Though the stained-glass canopy of leaves   The brown ones, they crunched
Poetry is inclusive like an outstretched hand Its words pull you near and into Its foreign land Escape, escape, escape again... You dont need to fear, to tremble or roam without a cause
 Get in the car. Drive for a little while. Among the dusty plains. It's a place I call home. Don't know anything else. Purple ringed skies. In the air carries no lies. I can breathe easy tonight. The radio is real loud. But it soothes the soul.  A
What do I do when life gets rough,  when stress makes me feel like I've had enough? What I like to do is sit down and breathe, especially when I've found a good book to read. 
The rain hits the window screen. Pages rustle with soft grace. Dark ink messages Whisper sounds of peace.   The lightbulb gently glowing. Music fills the cold heart. Body heats up slowly.
“Why don’t people know about this.” I think As my body soars away from my seat I feel as thought I’m filling the space   like water once shaped to the pipes
Growing up in a world where we see many different faces. They come from all around the globe, all types of places. But what's the difference between you and I?
As I sleep... Life continues to happen My chest rises and falls to the rhythm of me breathing Although I sleep... my heart is awake
A sun gleaming red and green A time that disappoints the people who have been mean A time of anticipation from young to old, even the teens A time that reality has overshadowed by a dream  
Does time heal everything?  Because I, still feel the same. Will you please take me away? Oh please just take me away. I used to be so strong, well not really just was numb to it all.
IT
Raising sons full of ire, Restraint is no longer their friend. With news, IT builds a fire. In only destruction it will end.   You did this, you did that, Three hundred years of accusation.
to test limits and defy explanation  to tread murky waters and not look back  to sour higher and higher and be able to look down  to concure fear with a flick of the wrist  to try 
The flames die out. Ghostly traces of red and orange and purple haunt the sky. The last moments of light cling to the clouds as the weight of the sun is dragged down. Resting place. Somberness rises with the moon.
It's more than just tissues and bone. It's more than just a pretty face or nice clothes. It's more than knowing right from wrong. It's more than your name or your favorite song.
I think of how the universe is made of theories—                assumptions and mathematical calculations attempting to shut down the human paradox and close Pandora’s Box,
In my dream, My friend knew his time was coming. This 26 year old young man He had just visited the hospital for a checkup And the doctor had diagnosed him with a disease
Thoughts- Thoughts race around my mind,  Racing and whirling,  A hurricane, living inside   Sometimes it is comforting, For I am not alone with these thoughts inside,  I have voices, 
I say a prayer for the departing warrior, Departing for lands whose soil is littered with landmines, To fight a war he doesn’t understand, To possibly die in a country he couldn’t care less about
Peace is a goal we all seem to strive for, yet we are yet to even come close on a global scale. Peace is a goal men and women die for, yet as hard as we try it seems that we fail. 
The day we go and find the moon is down,Shall be a day of justice for the earth.We all must burn to find the fired crown.'Cause we're inclined to fight and show our worth.
Wow this poem is old, I was 12.... (2009)    Who asked for peace At 12:00 in the chi? Or in harlem New York by their mouth? Who asked for peace When the Klu Klux Klan cries?
She painted the world In shades of blue, Violet, and green.
I was raised to be proud, confident, to embrace full.  To ignore the mugs of the brighter skin, Living Melanin. To wear my curly fro & deny any hands to touch for it was my crown.
Walk with me, Lord! Walk with me!Walk with me, Lord! Walk with me!While I’m on my pilgrim journey,I need You, Jesus, to walk with me. Say it loud Im black and I’m proud 
I am not a poet, And when I do I try, I put myself down, And give up every time.   I am not a poet, Though I would like to be. I find I can never express My feelings accurately.  
PAY ATTENTION Get ready for this intervention People are dying Children are crying Men are lying
Surround me with peace Take me away to a new home Remember that I am a person too Remember that I am love Surround me with peace

RIP
I became a poet when I was born I became an artist when I died Putting ink to the paper helped me feel what was inside   As a babe I saw everything around me I'd lose sleep so as not to miss a thing
 If I could pause lifeJust for a simple momentHappiness--I'd have.
I close my eyes and think about all of the things that have happened, I close my eyes and I think about anything I came imagine, I close my eyes and wish there were better days sometimes,
I'm tiered of waking up to see the news. How many died? Who bombed who? When I see the headlines I sigh, They outnumber those that show any hope, Faith in humanity so hard to restore.  
I close my eyes And call out your name “Jesus!” And there I am Lost in blur A dark abyss of nothingness Everything around me is oblivious It’s just you and me Face-to-face
I know that there’s a clearing’s reprieve for weary travelers: ones with honey thoughts, those like geodes, us like patient coal.   I’ve never ever seen that lake but I hear
When it rains it pours they say, So go and find your zen; Even if for a moments time, Peace will reign again.
Rainbows or Solids Experience or Knowledge Christian or Atheist No matter what, here he is.   This is a child. This is someone's worthwhile. He is loved by someone, 
Breaths puff out In the cold chilly air Frost dies underneath And you don't care You try to breathe You lift your feet To take a step On that very long Staircase And you're gone
Lay with me and drift, drift away, high into a cloud. Just laying here with a soft song coming out a old stereo. Saying sweet nothing under the influence only makes me smile.
Noise, noise, all of the noise Yelling, screaming, yelling, screaming It gets louder as it enters my head Headaches, not only headaches, Bruises, cuts, and scrapes too,
It's hard to be finding myself when the answers are blinding.  And the darkest thing in my life is the light.  I can no longer continue when I cannot be with you. The Fire is fuel of each failing fight, 
This feeling Is foreign But welcome All the same It's strange  To feel it Bubbling up To the surface Coloring your soul With its cheerful hue Splashing my mind
She with the lion's mane- She with her head in the clouds had always been one to suppress her thoughts in hopes to just fade in the crowds.   As she grew, as she learned
I just want to take a few minutes of your day,To tell you about how we can truly change society's ways,There's contamination everywhere,from our televisions, our music,our food and things that we drink,
Sitting in a sunlit room, I ponder how to begin   Words seem to distance themselves From me after So long a space I filled with nothing more than Wounded doubts  
Relief only comes during the late hours of sunset, When the cool wind finally arrives Just to curl around your legs, Sighing with content, just feeling this moment of peace
Spend some time with me and watch the dawn break. Linger a while longer,and to me cling. Let it all collide and watch the world wake.  
When the raging battle seeks to steal my joy, My tears trickle down my face. That's when I like to employ, My unbeatable fighting Ace.   I lay down the Truth, Let the lies flee.
Today as I went about my Saturday ritual of housekeeping, I found my lost love for the laundry and the orange peel therein And again at midday for the sanitized scent of the dishwasher
Risen up gracefully A halo on her head Aunt Sharen earns her golden wings Slowly fading into an eternal slumber in her bed Proud, Brave, Determined, I go on That's what she would've wanted
A river of cool blue calm It reaches my ears in this early dawn The shades go down  Color dances around This is the greatest and most soothing sound The element of free It is the best place to be
Pastel pieces of paper littering the floor Notes, lists, worries, and more It’s called OCD and I couldn’t find rest In therapy, workshops, books, or meds Poetry provided the outlet I need
A breeze arousing the white sheet A pale mist blowing through the trees Shifting through the withered Lilacs.
I sit upon the story book. (The walls they shudder, the house it shook.) The pages are yellow, the cover is aged. (The window’s emblazoned-the storm is enraged.) The story is familiar, my memories wake.
Tell them I’m kind Tell them that my intentions weren’t blind The fact that one characteristic could change one’s mind My hearts racing but the beat slows I’m losing time
The stars shone brightly in your eyes;A beautiful display.How I wish right here and now,You were here today.
Bloodshed and horror, Syria is a disaster Peace and aid, nothing could come faster Mothers and fathers can only cope Brothers and sisters can only hope
In the shadows  in the shade when the hope of past things fade forget the past forget the pain  when all is lost, it's not you, you try to save  it's brothers,friends, sisters,family 
the words just flowed  out of me around me so real I could actually see the words that came from inside me  not good, not great, not even okay  but still a part of me that demands to be seen
I’ll take you on this journey; across warm bars of sand, over regal mountains resting in the verdant pastures. Embrace the treasures of soil beneath your naked feet.   As your soul tremors
If there's one thing I need, it'll be my inner creativity.  No deserted island can beat what's within me.  I have the ability to turn the sound of waves to rhythmic beats,
Black or White, Half or Whole, Flee or Fight, Its from the soul, Experiences created, Have never faded, Some is dated, Some is hated, But all loved by all, It is there so use it,
My eyes they weep But tears can't grow grass. Or roots for that matter... My heart it beats and throbs on the street. The movement was meant for us...
What would this life be without you? Without your sweet melodies And your soft symphonies?   What would I turn to When I can’t focus Or when I am feeling discouraged?  
I show up at the farm, my home in Morocco for the next 3 weeks.   Terrified.   In the moment that I met her,
Alone on an island, on its beach where I lay, where the ocean moves slowly, and the palm trees sway. I look in the distance, where I see just the tip,  Of the bow that remains of my now-sinking ship.
Love is all I need, For my life to be complete, For eternity.
Sometimes the birds will sing on Sunday Sometimes the birds won't sing Sometimes the flowers bloom early Sometimes it snows in Spring   Sometimes the sun sleeps at twilight Leaving a painted sky
Be
I will be, and I will let my heart flood To the softest hum of Every Summer night   You will be, and You, I pray, will see peace The same peace I see Everytime I look at you  
Simple fickle peaceful minded With fire and angst motivation for days That's what it takes most days Days without her loving touch.  So the ground's been leveled in the orientation arena
Jesus He's not a secret to hide  Some will shame me for following him Even some who will read this poem I will shout out my faith  Not quietly but boldly  I will not let others influence my decision 
Moonset is the sunrise The juxtaposition  Of darkness and mellow light Vast blackness That enveloped every corner of the Hemisphere Consumed by dissipating orange, mauves and chartreuses 
That girl, in the back of the class...  The one looking lost, Daydreaming,  of things only she can understand. Things such as peace.  Not just in the world but in people.  In our selves.
All I need is us. For us to love each other, care for each other.
The little things You do for me Go a very long way The soft silent simple things When everything feels grey  
She walked alone  Not even one my her side He asked for help No one cared or even tried We all have days When we're just not ourselves We lose all faith
You I love so dear Come with me to an Island And Peace we shall find
Why is it, that living beings are hypocritical that they want to rule the world, but not be ruled by themselves? Is ignorance more common than being analytical? Look at your sorroundings, look closely. What do you see?
He wakes up the sun to shine on the morning He raises up the moon  to shine through the night He keeps me safe and he holds me close and with his love all things are right
I struggle through that crowd That marches through the day; It’s rambunctious and loud— A chaotic parade.  
Everyone has a name. Everyone has a story or background that they wish to share. Everyone has a dream or future that they ache for. Everyone has fears and habits they may never get over.
it may be cliche, even ridiculous for today. i yearn, i hunger, i ache for Peace. such a thing is hidden behind all the terror, such  a word has become a fleeting dream. but i see it behind the curtains of war.
Haikus for Peace #1 Will there be peace soon? All I see is war and hate. In time things will change. #2
"Times like the wind, ever-changing.Do we stand still, or do we glide?Do we purposely forget to set our alarms, or do we make an effort?I'll hit the snooze for you, but only once.
In the distant, there is a broken mirror, I can’t see myself clearly, Yet the promises that it upholds bring me peace… Peace.  
  Valuable in my Eyes   The artistic sky Paints a picture of freedom For lone gulls to fly.   On this island, “Perfect” can’t even describe the happiness that These warm currents bring.
find me lost in the middle of oblivion  tied to a pole in my thoughts of just givin in    like I'm trying to fight the very waves of the ocean  cause I can't find a vent for all this emotion 
Who can live without something that is in us all? Something beautiful, and wonderful Something big that starts off small.
Your teeth will always be there, even when you're not smiling. When the tears break and fall down your face, sitting on the front porch swing,
Crying out for one of life's many inconsistent qualms which arise without fail. Screaming pleading for  justice, joy, a sense of reason. Little whispers silenced pleas
Many misty mornings I CAST into the deep sea my net,   Thinking...perhaps, that ALL my efforts might pay my debt.
As the world lay in ruin, I asked myself,"Did it Pass?" Did the horrible war that forced us to conform,Did the preachers whom to God they're sworn,Did the witches,Died of execution form? Is it past,The reign of terror?The fog through which is uncl

Standing, sitting, kneeling, laying, Resting, sleeping, dreaming, praying. Waking, stretching, rising,  up now to join the world as it breathes.   Momentum growing, paces rising,
When a prick calls me a kike and a kid mistakes a rocket for a kite I need Israel.
All I need is a stick of graphite.  Dark and black as the night sky itself, when no stars shine and the moon hides from the horrors besieging the world.
She is the first place I felt love. She is like an ocean soft and peaceful yet strong enough to destroy. She is powerful. She is wise. She is brilliant. She is my muse.
I feel like I've beenSitting on a swingWaiting for someone to push meBut sunset comes
Stranded for hours on this lonely island Nothing to comfort or guide me. Not a bite to eat or book to read, Not a soul to sit beside me.   But my hope floats out on the water.  
The key to thee is that of three Know this mastory of three and truely shed thy body and be free Live that of three
My home is the sky where I fly freely. Where Mother pulls the aba off my back and Father leads the way while we soar. Where Sister’s wings are soft and vibrant and we chitter and chatter and twitter
If I was stranded on an island, I would need nothing materialistic. I would not need my cell phone, computer, wifi, or hell even my clothes for that matter. 
Tall oaks rise out of the soil. Abundant in the golden fall, they oversee the many all.   They creak and sway yet never turn away from another being.   Humbly they stand
Prancing around Lillies marked the destination of a new place. Inside of a cave I dropped my bag on concrete steps and sat ontop of a hill from the wooden old house. Washed away by the wind were roses, sunflowers, and rabbits.
The world is just a mirror of the soul Growing from roots, but barely bold For the life we live, for time that's sold For what we seek, for price and gold What is different between you and I?
I slip, the ghost of the unheard girl no one knows I climb the stairs, ascending my personal heaven I sit, reclining against my personal deity’s throne
He has decisions from his past that he regrets. A time machine. Maybe if he makes a time machine, then he can change what he has done.
All seeing fights Fighting and violence Careless beings Wars spreading everywhere Can their be peace Spread the calms Flash on the TV Looking up how dangerous this planet has become
"Find yourself         Your not from here  Your fatal flaw                Your fatal fear  Find you friend             Keep them near  Into the depths  Over the edge you peer 
In my hands hold the delica lights of the world. Within my grasp slips the sands of time. My eys seek the peace of the loud sounds of my chaotic mind.. For it is peace I hold so deeply inside the cracks of what makes me.

Peace is waking up to the smell of fresh waffles. Peace is getting all of my homework completed. Peace is when a friend hugs me from behind. Peace is when my Dad tells me he is proud of me.
The one thing that I can never live without is the peace that I strive for so that everything can turn out well for everyone and the calm that will keep
The peace of the world is not always dead Just forgotten by the hunger of war Slowly sucking all living with its roar And captivating innocents with dread.
I'm being so selfish, I'm not the only one with problems not the only one going thru it, not the only one whose depressed, &' they tell me not to drink but somehow I still just want to do it, some people I knew died last year, and even though
"It brings me joy to see the sun rise As it warms over the world It touches my heart to see a stranger  Bring a stray in from the cold Because small acts of kindness Will be big someday
there are more important things   then you and me then me and you   there are more important things then your posessions then being possesive  
Today, I will enjoy it.I will enjoy my coffee.I won't think about everything that bothers me,Or troubles me.I will enjoy sitting on my bed,Waiting for the flood of light to enter the room.
If I were stranded. Alone On an island with nothing but myself Nothing but my feet in the sand And the sounds of the ocean
I stand there peering, fearing and desiring. Wondering who would be the one like never before, i bare no ideal and i bare no hold, alas my gaze submits far beyond the earthly shore.
Most might say joy, love, hope, and sleep, However, I prefer the beauty of silence, With its daunting tones, And comfort it brings when I weep, The dramatic scene fostered by the cut of sirens.
The night sky fills with darkness and stars   The moon does rise with hands on hearts scars   Mourning and Morning, so filled with pain,  
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.
Where are you when the remembering brings me to my knees? The firework of your kiss reignites over and over, sizzling in my chest and sounding in my recesses. Your touches on my temples swirl in my brain,
pleading, begging you ask me to take you backto discard all the heartache, all the heartbreak to replace my scorn with words of love and once again by your side I’d lie
Awakened Spirits Hoping to leave this Earth to Sleep at last
In a state of serenity So peaceful and calm Sailing on the sea with a clear mind Thoughts are generous and kind We deal with life one step at a time Souls are at ease With a joyous nature
It floats in on the breeze, to try to gain it is to chase the wind. you cannot work towards peace, you have to be willing to surrender.
No white or black Just a well laid track And often a concerning lack Of humanity is seen Forgetting the in between Just fallowing a track To human demise A world were one another
i was the nobody in the hall, the loaner on the wall, i’ve walked in those same off brand running shoes that’s why this new poem  that i wrote right here is dedicated to you.
I like the feeling of not doing what I'm supposed to do I like the thrill of running from what is good for me   Coincidence is beauty But when we make it it's just fate And when we think it's random,
There will be world peace but only when Jesus Christ returns.We will be resurrected whether we are buried in the ground or are ashes in urns.Everybody will be friendly to each other, racism will be a thing of the past.
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.
Dear Buddhist girl,     You are so perfect.        You are kind, and you are wise.     Others may not understand you like I do,        But i will always be here to pick you up when you need me.

When people do us wrong, Jesus doesn't want us to retaliate.He is the son of God so his words are something we should contemplate.
Snow Pure white snow Tainted with scarlet petals Flowers of blood Blossoming   Broken Bent, broken and breathless
Steps she steps Thoughts forgotten Movements driven Purely Buy the sound The smell The taste Natures tears
There's a place where the middle meets the east.   Some of it is made of sand, it's bland and you could get lost - in the smoke, the ashes, and in the tears of children and parents
My soul is unknown to the world My soul is darker than the blackest sea My soul is colder than the iciest place imaginable WHY you may sigh is this the way life goes round
Person 1: In a land of peace Why does the hate increase When the “Christians” see A woman in the street Cloth on her head
She recuperates, Deserts fly,   Away cries the vast ceiling bat, Shatter my climbing dark vision,   "Don't forget!" Says the graveman, I'm never always alone, Always alone,  
Like unturned gardens, My familiar voyage pretends, Courage if you dare,   She falls asleep, My life is in steps, And I blow through the seething cold, I am unto you,
I am free.
 I am… The Lady I am the lady who likes muscle, not malls. I like the feeling of how the power and strength that surges through my mind and body and soul creates harmony amongst my demons
Blooming flowers red and white Petals dancing in the morning light Beautiful ballet in the wind Twirl about till they land   Sitting down to rest In the shade, for a picnic is best
I fantasize about silence, in order to have less.  
Life is a gift we should not take,Love from the heart we should not break.Memories, there are so many,And people we know, well, I know plenty.Our purpose here, I do believe,Is to give our gifts, not to recieve.
I watched the darkness; dissolving, morphing, quickly receding from the fruity light, as if rejected medicine.   Left behind for an identical,
At that very moment I wanted nothing else, I just wanted all of him to myself.
Sleep consume me  into a comatose state of mind
Power and shame, blood and Death Pumping heart, lungs gasping for breath Pray, should I do it? Oh, no. Never! Nay! Please, God help me with this dragon I ever long to slay  
Oh how i love this this feeling of falling apart breaking down its peacful knowing and its merciful not knowing the innocence of not having a wall of being completely and utterly vulnerable
We are on a constant balance between good and bad, light and dark, life and death. These things make us who we are, but the balance must stay or we may end up on the wrong side.
I am the idea of everyone, but accomplished by no one. I am in everyones head, the most important thing anyone has said. I am what countries strive for, what soliders die for. I am what leaders seek,
Looking at the ground,
Without me you are lost With me you are found Without me you cannot touch With me you hear sound   You are nothing But closed eyes And dry lips I am something  
I am... the one who hopes you will be okay in the morning when your boyfriend moves away. I am.... the love that you had and wish you could have back. I am the one that willingly gives it to you.
I am only human  I can only do so much 
They say you do it and everything just starts to fade, you open up your eyes and your problems just seem to go away, like how can you be high & still feel low, & if getting high makes my problems go away I dont have enough to make problem
I am me in many ways I am different than everyone I know. I am a person with own desicions with own talents and aspirations. I am like a nomad who roams freely without rules only
Dear whoever it may concern, I truely believe I am in love with you, the way your eyes light up when you smile, like the sunset has decided to visit me every single day.   You say that I'm insane,
  Life is like a weather-man's parade,
I was put on this earth to be somebody  not to please anything
I am redeemed 
I am an only daughter 
Up above in the emptiness of space

Everyone knows the saying, "life isn't fair. Although the obstacles we face in life may make us more strong, dominant, and capable to conquer what challenge we will face
I cannot say why we wonder I can only dream my dreams Imagination leads to creation Inventions become a need   Wonder allows the mind to wander While the body is set to work
I will always choose the simple life. The path that winds around the fragrant lilac bushes, that meanders across  the hillside, and flows down  through the river valley.  
What is awesome Is it a sarcastic device we say
It did not feel like it should be snowing, but it was. The air was almost warm, my jacket was open. Walking along the dark dirt path I saw
She opens her eyes slowly, feeling a warm, gentle, soft breeze brush against her face.
Peace of mind is Lying sandwiched between my parents. I am half a man with an ego bigger than he is, And half a woman with a temper shorter than she'd like it to be considered. I am half afraid, half fearless.
I am awoken, not by sounds. The sun egging me on with its rays to arise.   Birds conversing, cheerful small talk. Inviting me to join the world outside.   The breeze, a mornings greeting.
Jingle. Jangle. Is the sounds his pockets made, With each quick stride the music he shaped. Jingle. Jangle.
Hush.  Don't.  Quiet, Little One. No One wants to know.  I am shushed,  I am pushed into the corner  because of my smile,  and my smiling words. 
I'm tired of all this hate and disgust we need to separate its not them its "U.S." We blame everything as a country on a color instead of just solving the problem before it snow balls
I live in an earthly purgatory But tonight I smelled rain amongst the brimstone I inhaled the scent of a coming cleansing Of liquid purity flooding down upon the fire   I reside in the depths of perdition
    So this is battle, this is war. Take up your weapons, and kill some more. Here we march to the field to fight. We'll make widows and orphans upon this night.     The enemy pours in like a flood,
That aged gentleman Walking aimlessly Down the street, Jagged, broken, empty, He fits.   That weary mother Holding her crying baby At the bus stop, Pure, beautiful, blessed,
When I hold your hand My fingers are always tighter Than yours I'm starting to wonder If this leaks into other Parts of us like Rainwater into the ocean Like how I always hug you Longer
    ...Listen    It is when immersed in a moment of silence    that all the universe breaks forth in song    and I a recipient    simply sit in awe    of the wondrous symphonic orchestrations
    Gathered together from greatest to poorest    thickets and meadows, a lush mighty forest.    Peace and great solace amidst the strong trees    broad leaf and fine needle they sway in the breeze.
    The rustic life, pastoral scenes,    the basis of idyllic dreams    the simple ways of nature come,    its harmony in total sum.    These country settings, warm and real,
Come with me and watch the sunset fade. Let’s get away from this fake masquerade. Can you feel the cool, fresh air? We can be ourselves here and have not a care. The scenery here is very vivid and vast.
It started with shakes and the violent pounding. The floor boards matching the beat inside my ribcage. Japan was beautiful. And it was the shaking that stirred such a thought.
The world goes 'round Round for days Humans make sound With no delays. No colors are alike Just blended lights I'm color blind to endless fights. We live, We breath,
Dear villainPeace be unto your restless soulFilled with terror and insanityWhich does't care to knowWhat it sows to shake-up realityWhy lurk do you behind the veilFrom which you throw
Fellow white people!
They whistled from the backyard until us little ones Came trouncing through the woods Covered in sap and ticks, scrapes and red cheeks. We rolled down the big hill at top speeds Just to feel our ears pop,
These things have become artifacts since the last time you've touch them.I model my daydreams around the crinkle of linen sheets, hoping that one day I'll escape and find a place to meet you.
I am in an empty casing. My soul is hitting walls and edges.

I don’t want to let go
It causes fights it starts jealousy it tears up friends it cuts down dreams it makes you sad it makes you mad it makes you embarrassed   If ego were no more we'd start to build each other up.

These ups and downs don't mean a thing
What would be in my world?
  if evil is a flame then sometimes the world is on fire burning with all the cruelty of man, the passion of  lusts, greeds, and desires.   If evil is a song, 
I am happy as a cloudas loud as a rainbowas soft as a breeze
The Lord is my Sheperd, that means I'm the sheep, i have nowhere to go unless my Lord speaks, My Lord is my Provider, If He provides, I eat,
With my, life on bypass, I drive by my life's past,
Patience is a virtue I always hear the saying But patience proves to not be fire proof Burnt from the pain of my past lives 
I am a human before I am American.  I am a human

Little did you know when our world "Leaders" meet to talk, they talk not about how to create peace but strategies for war.
My eyes keep burning from what seems like one hundred hours of staring into a dry wind. That wind seems determined to send my retinas into a drought. It hurts to close them.
One day the night’s shadow will creep upon the vast skies,
At times we want to cry
Yellow is using her for a pillow. Yellow is when she runs her hands though your hair. Yellow is the color of the flowers that surround the two of you. Yellow is the sound of the wind whistling through the empty field you find yourself in.
If you know me by my presence, You know me by my appearance. If you know me by appearance, You probably don't know about my absence. If you know me by my absence, You don't know my reason.
City Lights, Valley low Watching through all the snow From this highway where I stand Twinching fingers, aprehensive hand   City Lights, how you glow Twinkling dots put on a show
And maybe I don't write real.  I write abstract.    And maybe that's okay.    That my vision of reality is more fluid and indefinite than what has been found on this fine ground. 
Sincerity    Can be found, you know.    Commitment    Is alive, you know.    Joy and excitement come in unity,
To love, would be an awfully
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
What is my mission? How can I inspire? I want to make a difference, but I’m just so tired.
I am the product of my Father’s hand, a creation of God, knit carefully into a man. I am the effect of love and nurture, a home that cares and builds and corrects. I am the aftermath of disaster, of learning
The day setting into a vast rice-bowl horizon Lifeblood of the sun Painted across ashen skies A sailor’s delight The wind forming a cocoon of tranquility
It doesn't matter to show your gratitude  If you always have a bad attitude And yet you might wonder why people are mad at you Because it all comes down to the way of being with others
There's too much discrimination, too many uncaring hearts, Some people only laugh when others are torn apart. Whether its racism or sexuality, no one seems to care,
 
Copper anvils ring like darkness.
washington d.c. is a monument city looking pretty a city with white monuments every where throughout the whole city, monuments for you to see, which show the american history in our life monuments that don't cause any strife.
I put my feet to the street I've never felt a heat,like this,my souls(soles) melt with each step I take,I wanna make a break, and run for it,like Run Forest!but
Stuck in the same routine, change only when I come clean,mean what I say everyday, it's the only path to a brighter way,light comes throught from within, grin with relief from forgiven sin,
My hands shake, my knees tremble The words I say barely come out as a whipser The people look at me like im insane And maybe I am Maybe I am because the words I speak are not normal
Little blue eyes, looking up at me You gaze and I wonder what you'll be You're hand wrapped around my finger tight I promise to hold you through the darkest nights   Little blue eyes, so full of dreams
Woken up by morning light,
Rejoice.
 WAR.... "War does not determine who is right... just... who is left."
i have a friend who flew with the times and plummeted to the ground as his pocketful of rhymes sunk and spat and became one with the earth-- the ground upon which we dream still engraved with his words
Before you even noticed him I saw you You liked him But, I crave you What am I gonna do? He’s just a masquerader That’ll never get it Only asking you can I hit it? Can I hit it?
The evil body shaped serpent shows His red demonized eyes glow Ranting and Raving In realization I’m the one that’s paying God’s what I need in my life is what I ‘am saying Keep me in your prayers
Our playpens are coliseums
The life we live in is the life we sin in
An old and wise book full of stories that stretch miles wide, the old oak tree calmly rests without a soul by his side.   Years of experience the old oak has, listens to the wind and gently swaying grass.  
We awake to a hopeful sunrise. We play, We laugh, We love, We live. Always expecting bright and sunny days only to be dissappointed by the alternating shift of mother nature. Belabored by life; we dwell in weight. 
Bombs everywhere, missiles left and right, clenching my gun in my hand so tight. Side versus side, so scared but I will never show it, America the Brave, proud and heroic.
I am the solver to problems I am quiet and un-costly
Blue-light skies, patched with pieces  Of cotton; sutured within the glare Of the blazing sphere.   Pigeons, bluejays, and squirrels- As if playing hide-and-seek under
People walking the streets with their gold, as if life to them will never feel cold That's what we want to see, is the life that was meant to be, for me.
If I Lose Myself... Gabriel Reyes   I am no ideal person But I am exemplary. If I lose Myself... I have lost everything.

It's hard for me to say That some people can't accept diversity Even in the world today. People can't marry who they love Simply because they're gay.
   The water is tepid, the sea cool bliss;
This beautiful world,
On darkened hill a soldier stands, Letter in his hands. Never to see,
People, people; listen to this world.   You hear the anger, and you hear the war.   Our family is hurt, and our friends are gone.  
I was made like this; created by a higher power, who took much of her or his time to make sure she or he got all of this right.
 Her Salted Kiss Scars, scrapes, bruises. inevitable remarks that tell a story her salted ocean breeze whispers in my ear
Sun
Sun shine bright on me. Sun shine all over me. Sprouse all of me, lift me from my feet.  As my whole body covers with an everlasting glow. I want to feel the warmth, feel the shimmer.
Violence does not beget violence  And yet we continue to treat it as if it is the answer to all of our problems.
I wait for him in the dark.  
It's 12 o'clock, Midnight, And the world is sound asleep. Little girls dream of princesses and baby dolls While little boys dream about video games and basketball. Babies close their eyes to play with angels,
I’m not one who has an alter ego,a lie people create when they’re feeling shallow,an ideal to covet and try to uphold,when in reality they are much less bold.  
First we need open minds that could in brace new things, second peace with our inter self and with everything in the cosmos and finally a love for everyone 
I'm a name and a face, who feels out of place I'm insane in the brain, "Maybe it should be replaced" Is what they say, when they're are jealous. When they see whats inside, the fun adventures I have in my mind.
Now the days of sufering have gone away The feeling of depression is still with me  When I try to live my life day by day It gets ruined by a bully   When he calls me names I play no games
We've be lied to Duped Always the same Never more of a motive than personal gain Have you seen the look in a mother's eyes When she finds out that her child is no longer alive
Earlier this morning, I awoke to yellow. It was a soft yellow; Yellow cherry blossoms. . Now, Blue's blankets are gone. He stretches - endlessly. And white planes' ribbon-trails
One day I will never forget Was one calm, fall night. Among the leafless trees and the unfathomably dark sky
What if smiles were traded like currency? Service with a smile is a requisite Not a nicety Government bailouts Would nevermore distribute unevenly Vibes are consistent Zeal is flourishing
The Way Of The World
i heard a child scream once, only once, and it was the sound of Algebra, the Cold War, global warming,   but also a mango seed scraping wood to etch grammar rules.  
i am a mere inhabitantin a constellation of chaosand often timesi have a habitual inclintationto escape from these wallsthat harbor looming memories
Dashing o’er a thousand hills, Gliding through the forests, Dancing o’er a million fields, Soaring o’er the jungles.   I sing a delightful melody, I sing the tune of love,
I think I'm tired of taking a stand It seems like it doesn't matter Everyone's up in arms  But no one will ever change It's time we all take a seat Maybe watch what we eat Maybe we get off the street
  Dear MOM, I know I never said this,
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
People have been insulting people forever, and I must say "Stop!" If you don't stop today, then I will call a cop. I want the number of racial slurs to decrease, because, my friend of mine, we need some peace.
How I am flawless? What a bore, These weak and fragile ideals, We hold them close, To build ourselves up, But the world in its flawless heart, Strikes us into chaos   How am I flawless?
We want change. We want a revolution. We want to make a difference. We want peace. We want to stop seeing young people dying in the streets. We want equal love for everyone. We want to mean something.
I had a dream, Then I open my eyes  And I realized. I live in a damage world. Where man made fact is fiction. And man made fiction is "common truths" usually diction.
I am from cells, built together to make my mother’s uterus, If I wasn’t supposed to come out, then how did I,
I am from cells, built together to make my mother’s uterus, If I wasn’t supposed to come out, then how did I,
What did we do? Why is it always us? Everytime we turn around It's another balck person down on the ground. Why do people hate us so bad? At first we were beaten, tortured, and onder appreciated.
Ethnicity, an identifier to some, a misfortune to others... to her.   She hides, her true identity under a body she feels isn't her own, Mocked behind closed doors
Fantasy Surreal, Whimsical Frollicing, Flying, Dreaming Fun all day and all play, No fun and all work
Human kind, which I am a part of, is an organism able to create and solve its own crisis,
What do I see?
Melted, swooned, sighed: With every kiss I died.   Baby, brother, tried: With every song I cried.   Alcohol, tobacco, fried: With every pressure I defied.  
"Wifie" You make me sick Saying it cutesy As if it lessens the bounded meaning   I'll hide behind a smile Pretending I understand When in al honesty, I just want to push you away
don't tell me things about myself that i know are lies   don't say that i am not good enough when i know the truth   don't say that i am ugly when i can see clearly  
As I looked into his eyes  I was just a child, his child  He was JUST my daddy.  My daddy that was in glossy pictures clothed in Camoflauge. 
I turn on the news and all I see is ISIS this murder that immigration this
When I was young I was teased and called burned
Peace is a nonviolent war
The rain is pouring down
My reflection is  a mirage purely an image  Based on deception hidden with lies buried in secret It whispers happiness  to me But all I can see in

When I have my headphones on I no longer hear the everyday noise. Just get high off of music.
You can't see it but insults are weapons, actual weapons. Everydaycitizens use these weapons we were born with to harm other people.Wake up, words hurt. We, the people, we have been trained, and, we
This rage does not subside it only ignites me kept on a tight leash i'll find a way try to oppress what what I feel I know what i feel everyday try to work me like a dog
Baby, you make me smile. You make me want to run a mile. Maybe even let my responisibilities pile. Baby, I wanna stick around for awhile. Just for you, I will exile all those who try to be hostile.
Let me straddle your mind Let me lay on top of your thoughts Rubbing & caressing each care away Interrupting them with each touch & feel I can open you up, to love, lifting you up Giving you a high
Soccer balls in the field and goalie free to wield he jumps for a view which appears to be new a goal appears as i run to my pears the satisfaction of a goal is screamed into my ear
These words cant even express my love for you they can only entertain ones mind We had many things in common but was not common was our time.  when i heard that you were gone  i couldnt help but to cry.
The stars shines and wonders at the Earth When will they die or no longer wish to breathe Second by second the stars wait Each shines is a sign the Earth will die It's us We humans did this all
What's positivity  It's a feeling in our hearts, it's a star, it's energy  That can drive us far so instantly  It's medicine, progression for all the entities  It's a remedy 
Singing the melody of a song
Blind me
I own my daysWeekdays? I got this. I succeed.But it's on Saturday and Sunday that I feedMy soul.I do what makes me happy.I live my life the right way, but my wayWhen I do chores, it's still play
Today I saw a homeless man, so I decided to buy him lunch. He said with tears in his eyes that he had not eaten in days and said thank you so much.
The world is so weird now, I always ask myself the obvious things. Why is this difficult? Or how could you be so sane?
The Sea is a Bliss,                As the Sun Offers a Kiss.                              The Blowing of a Strong Gale,                                                                Fills My Sail.
Nothing in the air silence, peace, tranqility nature is caling
  Waiting for time to pass Staring at a half empty glass Who is right Who is wrong No one has the answer
LSD
I go into the night just outside, within the gates to the deep dark pool of black jade   The moon dances on the water The water is cool like stone I wade in untill knees deep and then, dive in...
There is a land of radiance that shines
When the sun rises its bright, its early. its peacful. 5:45 is the time. What do i see, I see an advantage. I see a chance to get a head start, I see birds soaring, I see oppruntites. I believe there is more to accomplish.
On the edge of the milky way I stand
The Earth is like a beautiful cloud, Just to be on it makes me feel proud. If only I could just release The world from War and Hell into Peace.
Once upon a time... Goes those damned nursery rhymes.

Love is the essence of pure thought
With a great, burning passion I fly high into the sky Far above the clouds Heading towards the stars Following the wind without question Knowing up here I'm safe And am blessed with new freedom
We humans, we stomp across the delicate grass, As if it were not there. But if the grass were human, it would call you an ass, Lift you up and throw you into the air.   We humans, we rise up into the sky,
three-thousand miles away on a barren planet where kaleidoscope skies paint murals of the aliens. a town where all your friends’ families are also yours, unchained doors down every street.
Dear God,
What can I saywhen they sky is greyPeace will never be shown in a form of loveinstead we will always see it as war and bloodWhat much can we doto be involved and keep everything cool
Who would ever understand The person that I am He says he loves, he seems so sure But he doesn't have a plan I try and try and try But only seem to fail If I try one more time
I am an ocean wave, grasping for the rocks. There’s no need for time, nor for any clocks. God has a future planned, planned for you and me,
A craving so dire It is a need To break up a large fire To destroy a relentless weed   All things that must be Done to achieve A goal so key Are hard for some to perceive   
It's the metallic taste of blood after the final loss in a furious struggle with your inner man.
Have you ever had a secret in which you've held awhile; You see in the eyes of others that you're perceived odd or even vile; For you being different does not make you gross;
What are limits without timeWhat is distance without a prizeWhat do you win once you have won what you have wanted all alongWhat is a fight without a warWhat is speech with no encore
What would I change? Oh how vast that question is. There is no limit to the problems in our world.
A lust for Blood, a lust for love. A need for peace; for all wars to end. The human blood, of such sweet scent. Why, oh why must the scent linger in the air?
Didn't think I'd feel pain like this again. And I know it's happening 'Cause everyone's congratulating  the pain that I can put to song.   Was it worth it?  I don't know,  Wanted so hard

White people think navajoes are a discrimination to "their" land. "Thier" land where these monsters assume they can control our navajo pride. Our culture is what syntheisize us as navajoes and what makes us who we are.
Be strong   And if I witness a close death. Be strong, for It will strengthen my belief that it was their time and the works of god are never wrong.   And if I am ever befriended, 
Whispers in the WindWritten by Adam M. SnowEntrance me with your tune,that gentle voice of yours.
Two young boys In a world ravaged By seemingly endless war Find friendship At the bank of a clear, serene river, Where they come for respite, Brief moments of escape
You enlisted into the military It was your choice A good choice indeed You go to basic training to learn everything, and everything in between After that you are not done You have a career A job
I'm addressing you....you with the sunkissed slightly greenish hazel eyes and cherry blossom blushed cheeks...you with the dark berry skin tone and pure almond colored eyes... you with the corner store and liquor spots for teachers...
When I'm in scared I go to You When I'm in pain I go to You
A blowing wind, 
"Speak up!" They say, "You're too quiet."
Away from the students Away from the teachers Away from the stress Away from the homework Away from the tests Away from the school   Away from everything Is my spot
You say your fighting for freedom, your fighting for America,
Summer 06' Circled around the screen is my family Grandpa in his recliner sitting stern and proud My little brothers cheering loud My mother and father clasping their hands
This is oblivion  Such is a state of limbo May one hope to leave
I'm stuck between a rock and a hard place. I don't know where life or God plan to take me. I don't know what this world will bring.
What makes my mind tick?
My dear reader,  I strived to be God's helper.    I engaged myself in the conflict against evil, Yet, I could not conquer my own vice. I strived to be the light of the people,
I often dream of myself floating from space, looking down upon the planet and watching its peacefulness.  And from up above, if my voice could somehow reach every human being, I would say, "Stop trying to dominate nature."  
Blind Ambition Keeps me wishin' I had someone like You   Orange burst of passion Purple mist
  His skin color does not mean to violence he is keen Skin color can't tell what lies within a person, be it cruel or kind
Where you supposed to go when your home aint even home happiness is in the gutters have to close up all those shutters see these people here dont love us  so all we got is each other 
   
 There I stood. Tragically transfixed in cowardice, trembling in fear, no voice of my own, so afraid to speak out I took to writing this poem
HOOK: Obama wants a change. To have to world rearranged. Let's do this right. We can change during the day or night. We can change a person's life. VERSE: We can do this.
"The horror, the horror!" They cry; yet what does it matter? They hide their faces even as the world Did THEN.

Far from home they fight, In a land that’s not their own. Their enemy has no face, Yet they fight on. In a time of terror Not knowing who is friend or who is foe,
  Ive grown out of my dispair Nothing can withstand me now Even though lifes not so fair I play my part and then I bow   People doubt me everyday
Anarchy is mistaken for freedom. Decisions no longer involve wisdom. Two sides are pitted against each other. No one will agree with one another. Understanding is known as old-fashioned.
A monkey is in a tree by the ocean by the sea In a tree all on its own Free to roam And inhale the ocean breeze

Sunset settles on the east As the sky darkens Stars twinkle While tine slows downs Owls awaken Yet, birds fly south Heart beats And I stay still waiting waiting waiting
Through beams of wood, light reaches for silver souls afloat. A single breeze, a reverberation from the other layer of time, Air dancing to the melody of ghosts across skin, Just brushing the nerves, barely greeting,
The beauty of nature puts me at peace, and as I observe it, my sadness will cease.  I look at the sky, watching cardinals whiz by, and the bulk of my stress is released.  From worry to wonder, my anxiety plunders, when I close my eyes and just br
The flow of the human race is nothing more than a flow We seem more and more content in our ways we forget to grow The Individualistic idea has inspired oneself to lead a life of independence
Listen now, youngest of us. On the edge of ruin, I am wiser And perhaps, you shall be as well.   A crimson silk carpet runs beneath The house, unmoving and unwavering.
In the darkest night under the full moon My heart aches for the news that will come soon As it cries out for the resolution That news that had two conclusions The news that determine my destiny in life
As I watch their energy burst in the mornings, my energy surely but slowly surfaces             Something about that gives me hope As I teach them something and they grasp the concept, peacefulness overwhelms us both
The language without words yet everyone understands it.
nobody left, and nobody died, but the family count went from six to five. a daughter abandoned, shunned, alone, because another girl's heart was the place she called home.
Sometimes, I find myself at a loss for words. My family and friends always jokingly feign surprise, That the one who always has to have the last word, The one with the vocabulary of a thesaurus,
Just breathe in and out and again.This smog that clouds our mind-placing us in the realm of Negativity-will pass.
Guns are firing. Kids are dying. Parents cry. All the police do is sigh. Another one dead and gone. That's another bed empty and alone at home. This shit is like a cycle.
Hear em' shots from da Trumps n' Saxes?How bout' the drops of the Basses' beats?
Are we not all searching for a reason to live? Searching for our origin and our destiny?
From the ashes, we rise like Kings. From our fallen blood, we learn to grow limbs. WIth each broken brick we build a home. Our fate is made in our blood and stone. You may take our bodies,
This is a message to the world To each and every boy and girl No matter your age there’s nothing to fear Young or old, you have to be bold   I ain’t saying its fine to play mind games
Fingers tingle over keys, Sounds resound across the house, Dead silence. Notes tinkle and drop in my ears like rain. Delicious ties and cresendos awaken longing and stirs adventure. Trance-like singing,
Fingers tingle over keys, Sounds resound across the house, Dead silence. Notes tinkle and drop in my ears like rain. Delicious ties and cresendos awaken longing and stirs adventure. Trance-like singing,
The Logic Of Todays Youth    Many Young People Today are in great disposition Simply because we refuse to defer from sin  You see its not that we don't know any better 
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,
Silence You wanna be heard? Don't make a sound. It's profound.
Blind, Oblivious, Bastards     I see you all, I hear you all, I know you all You do not see me, you do not hear me, you do not know me     You speak loud words of nothing
A girl born with different parts than boys,
Verse 1: Dear God, how you been? how you doing? Can you intervene? We need some help and some improvement Girls are getting pregnant by the age of thirteen  And boys will stick it anywhere, even if it ain't clean
Oh my brother, where are you today?
Worthless Numbers
You claim your ambitions, yet you sit back and wade How can someone be so ignorant, is this why you're paid? Our brothers have fallen, our sisters held hostage, We didn't agree to this, I didn't sign a single roster.
Blue benches, concrete walls, and empty streets Empty skies, no stars....
 We worked, long ,hard nights... diligently.
Cradle my heart. Wrap it in swaddling cloth And gently hold it close. Sing to my soul. Let your voice caress me And your words heal my aches. Give me your hand. Lead me through the night
Maybe in death, when we are no longer casket sharp, our skeletons will expose themselves.
  A river, cheery and merry, Is a picture of perfect happiness. It laughs as it trips and falls, Crashing into obstacles in its way. Never angry nor upset,
  The river flows by Ripples dance along its surface A willow tree weeps.
  I sit on a crooked tree branch Leaning against it As I stare out into the distance Mountains tower above Darkened shadows with white tips Shrouded in pale mystery Meadows crowd the land below
Brown, Black or White What makes us different?
  Quiet in the night
Sometimes you get so caught up. Spun so far around, that they're winding you up. Coiling you into a speedball before they send you splitting the air, Hitting the air before you're batted away.
Those poor girls, this poor me trying to navigate womanhood not knowing which way to look,
The child of a construction worker and a factory worker sat by and watched TV
the motherland is crying we are longing for salvation we are yearning for the peace of God our security is broken the serenity is nowhere to be found what have we succumbed to?
 Xxasperated Irritated Feeling the need to be Elated Want to be liberated  Trying to fascilate it 
Utterly alone she cries Dying Piece by piece In the  War Against the lies   Everything is wrong How  Can she Keep  On Being strong  
We need peace. Loving our neighbors. Understanding our neighbors. We are all the same in every form. We are the human race. One in need of unity.
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
November 30, 2013   Autumn Leaves   These autumn leaves ride the golden breeze So warm and inviting This city hasn’t felt a night like this in lifetimes
There is a strange peace in loneliness,
words buzz and spin in clouds of confused formation wheeling and turning, penetrating all corners and crannies with all of their information
The end Of our days
Dear young Dear reckless
If a stranger was the face reflected back You wouldn't break his jaw would you? Threaten to murder him for being black Or beat him for loving his fellow man Too often I see the withered dreams
Why do I have to suffer? I’ve done no wrong Why can’t things get better? This is not where I belong   Every day I have to deal with this I’m tired of being trapped When will life be bliss?
Why do I have to suffer? I’ve done no wrong Why can’t things get better? This is not where I belong   Every day I have to deal with this I’m tired of being trapped When will life be bliss?
I sometimes ponder whether our souls simply conjure the vices that mold our souls into monsters, or if heavy hearts simply sink like lead when life's violent seas bring disease and death.
Merging onto streets. We flood as an aid to those in need. We see the pain, cries, and pleas. Freedom is so everlasting.
The key falls into my hand. The door opens. Piercing noises around me Subside. I have to hide, before they take me back.  I run Into a never ending hall of doors Leading to infinite worlds.
The night air caresses me,
The grass holds the history of days past The sky paints an ever changing picture of life  The sea brings life of all kinds into view    Nature teaches me about myself.  
Money never makes a man My motive is make a movement My goal is accomplished when everyone's influenced My mind is diverse I need to make difference Let's improve education! Teach a generation!
Death is not a beautiful thing.           It's terrifying.           Just the though of it makes my heart quicken.            What lies beyond, deep into the abyss.
Seldom do I think your not powerfulA servant of JoyA peace initiation for the Indians of SenecaA LoveA FireA beautiful path in the light of foreverA reminder of effortless serenityPush me down
I lived in StarlandWith all the fellow saviors and saintschoosing patiently to divide the grate and canisterbarren fellows without knowledge or understandingI was flying intrinsically away from the cauldron of desire
Come and walk with meBeside the ocean blue
City girl With a country heart Walks outside To her back yard,                   Looks up And sees jet streaks Left in the sky At night. Too fast. Looking up
Beyond the oceans, Past the stars.. Through the moon.. And way beyond.. To the shores, Past the sunset.. At the sands, Is where we met.. Through the jungles... Through the trees..
My eyes, crystal clear. I'm opned, anew... Inspired too. None other than the word love can explain it- It's bubbling over, unable to contain it. Not wishing to do so, I wish I had none.
Give me hope Let me be a beautiful flower that blooms from the ashes of an un-privileged past Give me hope Let me feed from the opportune victals of a chance for higher education Give me hope
When the world finds peace, the world will stop As far as hiearchy goes there will be nothing at the top Level playing ground with nothing obstructing the goal We will actually find time to stop and let the ball role
When the world finds peace, the world will stop As far as hiearchy goes there will be nothing at the top Level playing ground with nothing obstructing the goal We will actually find time to stop and let the ball role
Huff and puff the good stuff Inhale the good  Peace 
Drugs and Rock n' Roll Live the counterculture life  Be the flower child
My Mind; My only mind; The one I hold dear; So dear; Without such; My opinions would be non-existent; My thoughts would be nothing; Nothing for I; Nothing for anyone;
at the end of every today that passes i lay able to rest because i know that it means i am yet another day closer another day closer to my tomorrow
The rush of the wind is like the blood of the earth, And the chime from afar is calming. The crickets are crying, Serenading the sky, As the trees oblige to the wind's calling.
My struggle? What Struggle? It's been nailed to the cross by giving my life I gained from the loss   My shame? What shame? I'm washed by the blood I'll never be the same  
I dream of a world where there's peace.
At night when I bow my knees And come to You in prayer, A gentle calm surrounds me As I leave my burdens there.
You use the word "Queer" you hope the picture is painted clear you judge off of looks  instead of the books homophobia is real they make such a big deal they are people too

seconds fly hours dissolve into each other impossibly dense with have tos and maybe laters and not enoughs souls weary from vacuum-sealing meaning into each moment
I look at life as balanced, like there is no right or wrong But bringing up one's identity just plays a different song. Am I the hero, or am I the villain? Does anyone know for sure?
In those few peaceful seconds, it was just me and the world.
I don’t want to be anywhere, anywhere but here
“What could we change if I offered to help?”Take note of this thought. Tape it to walls.Stick this to billboards and light postsand maybe the back of your head of you're bald!
The things that I'd change would be minds and heartsWhen the clock strikes the miracle hourThe peace that's been lostAt innumerable costsWould return with unity once ours  
What would I do if I could change anything? Would I stop violence? Or maybe world hunger? Maybe there's a point, I would love to think But is there any way to be truly sure? What is the source of all our suffering?
A world once of simplicity Has fallen into a mystery From chaos and destruction Humanity could only blossom
Lights, Camera, Action Light, How do you see it? Can you even see it? Or is it felt on the fine arms that brush up when air is left of mist.
there's so much hate and pain pouring into our lungs 
Concieted.
A Photograph of The Past   I’m laying here, the ceiling’s caving in. I’m staring up in a gaze waiting for the fallout. I’m still, I will not move. I will lose myself in this crumble.
Explain to me the difference between a house and a home, I've tried all alone but only to find it's not in my bones, I'm deep, Deeply lost,  Deeply sorry, Sorry for what I am, Sorry for what I do,
As i convert my self over onto the mellow side,
  What a Blessed Friend        My friend in relation             My loving sister in bond             I look to you with amazement
  Grand Haven             Trusting, loving, funny             Leave me smiling             Day after day             Turned from gray  
Please take me to the motherland I heard love can manifest Yin and Yan they coexist Please take me to the motherland Where alchemist don't trade souls For the chemical make up of gold
It's not as if I ever meant for this to happen. It just kind of did. It's nothing bad,  I swear it. It's just odd. And frightening to consider. Love me once, shame on you.
They waddle onto war - a walk to the park? -With bodies blown and souls sent to the dark?   I say “Young lads, throw down your guns, And reach up for peace that rests in the sun.”  
  In love Your heart gains a sharp feeling, Like a dull pencil. Your eyes sparkle, Like tinker bells light as it dies out. Love, It stops your heart
Change The Pain With Caption ever FEEL like your circumstances have gotten the best of you. well of course you have, because we are THE same and I’ve felt it too.
The guns ring one last shot
I think sometimes the sky should be a chalkboard that I can scribble on That way everyone can see my thoughts And maybe be entertained They would see ornate designs and oriental shades
Not many know me Nor do they know my past Naive describes those who know only my top layer But when one comes truely When one comes with respect They will come to love me as I will to them
She lived in Kenya, Only knew her ABC's, Moved to America at eleven years old, Taught herself English, No one helped her, She fell behind, And yet her heart never failed,
Disastrous
The power to work and the power to try,The power to tell the truth and the power to lie,This power is within us all.But look around see how we’ve fallenShort of what we could be.
never did i think i could be one of those people the people who love... differently. never before did i think id experience feelings  for that of the same sex though now i find it somewhat rediculous.
If I could change the world, I'd know exactly where to start I would start with the people who could'nt find their hearts The people who turn their heads away when someone needs help
Imagine a world of no conflictNo anger, no murder, no war   A world of respect   Where the color of your skin doesn’t matterWhere which side of the tracks you grew upon makes no change  
  Just picture life without limits.
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  
If I drop one tear it’s for my brother Living alone with no mother Thought that life couldn’t get any worse When guns putted my brother in a hearse
Sometimes we have great dreams,
"Resist" she screams running from ash Broken and torn but not turning back
What Would You Change You have just been given the power to change anything in the world What would you change?
What did you say when the ink was etched into the skin of many, pale, fragile, souls locked away for a difference in belief? What did you feel when the two mechanical beasts in the sky light,
The United States of AmericaThe New WorldAn escape for a new lifeA new beginning
Red, Yellow, Blue, Green Flags are nothing but color. Caucasian, Indian, Islander, African Skin is not the issue in particular. Trans, Gay, Straight, Bi We are all the same.
Change. Such a broad word, for such a monumental feat. The key to change is tolerance.
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
I walked with my shadow, side by side.
Life is a struggle filled with like minds befuddled.All trying to find reasons to exist.Many are stuck smoking spliffs and drinking fifths,But they say happiness awaits to those who persist.Many have perspired.
If you could ask for one thing, what would it be? That was the question asked. Well, I'd pull out my magic lamp and call upon my genie,
Peace is never going to happen, it's an idea made up from stupidity. Each mind thinks differently, everyone is not the same. Saying such a thing breaks the cortex, the cortex of humanity.
A dream is far from a physical state, a goal remains beyond our reach for so long. Through creativity and complexity great things come. People live for eachother, weak or strong.
I look out at the still black water 
Lately I've been dreaming of you. They were peaceful, happy dreams: Dreams full of smiles and laughter, Innocent dreams of love. I love you more than you know. And the times we share mean the world to me.
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..
To flee, or not to flee--that is the question:
Why are there still people out there that just love to hate? Based upon the color of their skin and their race Every individual possesses different traits Is it even possible to change these people's ways?  
Timeless Stone             An ageless face             Carved under sunlight,             Ripened by moonlight.             A tasteless taste  
I want to run away to some place beautiful Where the birds are singing And the trees are dancing. I want to run away to some place quiet Where the savage thoughts of my mind run silent
Place me in a world of peace and I will know bliss. Throw a grenade of love into the city and they, too, will know this. Take out your tazer and shock me with kindness.
What would I change? Wouldn't you like to know? I'd feed the hungry To make people grow.   I work at McDonalds, it's fine and all, And we throw away burgers that go out and come back
We live in a world where the American dream is a thing that is yearned, Where liberty is free and opportunity awaits around every turn. We live in a world where we are given every right to speak what is our hearts,
Stop. Take a deep breath. Is this where you want to be? Is this where you thought your life would lead? Stop. Give it a chance. Follow your dream to no end. Never keep pushing just to pretend.
I live in a land where the flag speaks red A red that gives pride and shelter until my end Yet to my Friends  red Bends to displaying the Bloodshed Of their countries Living through the darkness of the dead
How I love to sing It's how I use my voice The way I get my words out It brings me great joy   Music is my everything It's there when life just isn't enough When I have a bad day
What would we be if god made it so we couldn't see?
Sean realized at a young age Other boys were not quite the same He wasn’t on the same page   No one was to blame He was so estranged He felt naught but shame  
I turn on the news Rape, murder, missing Those words have become boring to me A black boy has been shot The white man who killed him goes home free Bullshit What has this world come to?
Star-spangled eyes,  Firework filled skies, I grew up with the government And all of it's lies.   I grew up with family, Leaving for war, What is there to learn from war?
Like a bird needs a feather, we all need eachother. In the darkest of times , we search in others for a light that shines. but the light that we seek, is within ourselves,
In history class I watched the Indians, Assimilate, Their culture was destroyed by,
A generation pressured by society A society driven by expectations and decisions Decisions that restrain us like animals to a cage A cage that strips what little freedom we were given
Pride gets in the way Envy lies in hearts  Gluttony overflows our nation While lust tears relations apart Anger boils within our veins  Greed prevents us from our potential
At the sound of an alarm, We wake! At the smell of a brew, We wake! At the turn of a key We move! On our path to fortune, We dream, Yet, at the sight of the homeless child,
People walk around as they laugh as the others stand in alone as if a polygraph test that the "others" takes blinks and beeps, people not knowing how the "others" weeps behind weak doors that hold back
If asked to change a thing or say
People walk to work like they are alonethe youth shrug their shoulders, take a drag, and it passessleep in a city of millions, never knowing anyone.outside, every thing you hear you have already heard,
To "Pax" is to "Have Peace" According to my book, But your book is not the same as mine, And thus, you have no "Pax!"
I have a good Friend A Friend that knows me
A mountain of fear A valley of guilt A river of shame And a world of sin   Do not bow your head in defeat There are things we must not accept
Race. What is it? Who needs it? Does it really make a difference? Or does it only impose limits? On the soul.
Giving the world a better place to live, Imagining the people living in peace, Viewing the world through each other's eyes, Enemies no longer exist have hate to give.  
During life you should be guile
A lost soul in a pit of despair,
  They asked me to measure my life in a glass Determine the worth and state it in halves To cut up the moments and bind every scrap Together in leather and draw up a map
Everyday more disappointment
Imagine, A world without hate, A world without oppression, A world with peace,
The world we live in is a mess but we can fix it. We need everyone to try and no one to quit.   Some people are fat, some people are gay some people have blue hair and some people have tattoos.
What good would Earth be,
Why do we all hate These wars we start From bombing innocent towns To a gunfight in the street next to KMart
Many enemies and strangers
Empty souls press grounds unknown. Vacant hearts indulge in wonders yet to be discovered. Mournful beings beg for salvation while the glitters of a great land gleam in unsatisfied eyes.
With power, comes control. With power, comes anger. With power, comes lack of integrity.
With power, comes control. With power, comes anger. With power, comes lack of integrity.
Disguises for hypocrisy. Blinded by democracy. Honestly, do We know why We go to war and children die? Contradicting insanity - Thou shalt not kill, all of humanity. 
Listen to the Water Listen to the Sun Listen to the Sand They're all so grand The swishing whish of Water The beating heart of Sun The whispering shh of Sand as one
Humans in Disguise                                         We seek on this ground                                  this ground called Earth
 The Seeing Man, A chaste man displaced, Saunters through life Without a single expression On his pallor white face.   The Seeing Man Never utters a cross word He feeds the hungry
If I could change One thing About the world today In all its hurt, in all its pain In everything not going our way Is a smile On every face One that would never change
I lie here, here alone In silence, sweet silence. My thoughts go Ever on, ever on
Then my life started to fall apart...BoyfriendGood friendsPopularGood lookingIt was all in my handsBut it was falling out of His grasp.
Then my life started to fall apart...BoyfriendGood friendsPopularGood lookingIt was all in my handsBut it was falling out of His grasp.
I dabbed my brush into the endless ink.It went on smooth, painted all money pink.Pink for delight.
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...
What if we were lovers? From the derm to the core? What if we were the shutters to Hatred’s Lore? Would we dance with the rays? Smile at the budding moon? And hate decay and ruin?
Paint the grey we live in;That’s my decree.Our world is more than the cradle of sin-No more Greed or Sloth we should see.Instead mix the weeping Blue with passion RedOr add White for a pure Pink.
  Not Over You 
Th light of day gives to dark of night, How can one overlook this tribune? For even apathy has insight,
The confederation had beliefs quite skewed They wanted all policies to be renewed But the union wishes to unite ones thoughts

"You're stupid. You're annoying. You're ugly. We don't want you here." These are words my brother hears daily at school. Cruel is the words to describes the children of today.
Peace on earth No matter how much we search for it, It is no where We grow weary   Our world is surrounded by evil and emptiness Lies and suicides Murders and disasters
War
Spying Death, He moves forward. Wating for his time, With welcoming arms.   He continues. With every step, A louder breath. Earth's details grow clearer,
Love can either hurt you or make you happy... or even both Love can be affectionate, beautiful, & romantic
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,
In the forest I hear no sound Branches falling down Leaves upon the ground Life dwindling down Leaning against a fallen tree
Free from it all. No more tip toeing around.
Oh the Comfort The peace The joy And the love That flows From you to me Dear Mother You give me attention That delivers affection Direction And understanding to me
Love is forever Love is fleeting Love is kind Love is harsh Love is ease Love is hard Love takes time Love makes time fly Love is fragile Love is enduring
All of me Clawing at blemishes

What is more beautiful? Being skeptical or gullible? People see what they want to see, Even though the danger lurks around thee But nevermind that, this world remains deceitful. Earth is like a baby,
Sometimes i wish to go in the woods and walk alone, Where serenity and peace are seen and shown
The blood of what fills "Art" Sustains me, Controls me, And tames me for another day in this world Another day to survive the lies, the heartache, the pain The blood filled with the history of a world
  Cool, ocean water nudges my crinkled toes  A gentle breeze sifts through the giant, leaves of the palm trees Swaying them like the exotic dancers of a waltz.  Looking up, I watch fluffy white figures slowly dance
The bombardment of booms that echoed the groundsSt
Empty, solitary, realxed, and let go. The inner floosy of my heart is free to close her eyes and rest. I usually see one other joining my personal solitary confine. Not today though;
We preach peace, yet declare war. We want to end world hunger, yet we toss food on the daily. We want to attain the best education, yet we are charged more than we can afford. 
The ship is sinking. There is a hole in the bottom of the stern. The women scream and clutch their children with fright While the men run around, struggling to maintain control.
Five letters  Three syllables One meaning Peace That you disrupt when you put an r after the a  Or r instead of n Or e or I instead of a I mean how hard can it be No I am not my twin

The power to change. The possibilities to achieve. How many lives can be touched?
man, who are you? beast, what are you? woman, why are you? peace, WHERE are you?
There is a sadness that grows inside of me somtimes.  Almost like water. Almost like him. It crashes through the shore and breaks through the sand.  At times It can take down cities; its destroyed many lands. 
Have you ever stopped to see How all of our lives might be Without those who died for the red, white, and blue Sacrificing their lives for me and you Do you even give one thought
The wall of the wave comes powering forward from a small distance My heart races with beat of my stroke as I paddle into a good position
I wish for world peace, For there to be no war, 
  What wilt thou give me for ashes?
One- It seems so small, tiny, miniscule But one can mean tremendous things One person can do so much.    One person can become the voice of a generation
Look in me. Now tell me what do you see. You don't see much. But let me tell you what I see a child force to be grown.
Falling into pieces She lies there on the ground Not knowing where her life has gone She only wears a frown Death stands beside her to take her soul away She begs for one more chance only one more day
The flag stands where you were. On the home front. Defending what you love. The flag stands where you were.
Her skinny arm wrapped around half of his basketball player frame and her petite body lay barely covering his, Her chin tilted upward facing his her eyes fixed He never notices.
Love is our energy Passion our vitality Understanding and compassion the vein of our existence Every time we laugh When our smiles mirror our hearts It seems that we will never face resistance
A small lake lies calm. Looking like a glass window Clear as a crystal A boat breaks the silent peace
You can take your cities Your cars Your bars Your asphalt roads And tall billboards, And starless, Smog-filled skies. I’ll stick with my small town My backwoods roads
Strength
You are never too far gone Though life is never easy or fair Hope appears much like the dawn Bringing with it something rare   The light shines brightest in the dark
Clear your mind. Open your heart. Let your soul loose.  Breathe in, breathe out. You are here. You are present. You've never been more alive than now. You are here. You are present.
This world is bitter cruelAnd I was a foolA fool to think I could change a world of coldThat I could change it into something bold
It's true to say, Every girl has flaws, And it's true that its displayed Every guy has been clawed. But ones for sure, For me it's a personal tour.   I can say that I've loved
War
The Soldier
Missiles of mistrust and combating reality, 
We wait in thick silenceWhile a genocide sleepsClaim to see all,When they know the leastThe mighty get mighterAnd the weak, they bendWhile we're made to sufferFor the ignorance of old men
It doesn’t matter to me Where you want me to be I want to be free and fly And I don’t even have to be high As I fly from here through the sky On my way to the ocean Where the steady motion
Peace is not easy.
    First there was silence Footsteps near my room Soft whispers through the walls Slowly the door opened The coldness grasped my arms It took me to that place  
What is difference? Why does society dislike the different? Who is to say what is differrent? No one is the same Yet, we all want to be like someone else No one is equal yet everyone is equal.
I feel as if I'm stuck in a cage, knowing my potential I bring myself to burst out in rage, this stage of trials is rough, as I lay under the rubble it is tough to see light, in spurts I try to raise with all my might but through the dust it's
  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
An unanswered question Haunts us for generations But no one knows why   We start to question But find no precise answer If we think too long   Hoped for its' exit
Why stress over them, instead why not god bless 'em earning minimum wage probably is a struggle, but giving students Fails so quickly on the double
Dear God,
The sleep of winter roams deep unpunished, Calm, subtle, just. A generous wind, carries Autumn's rubbish; Leaves, weathered to crust. Rain's kiss is as cold as ice. A warning of what's yet to come
Oh there is a bliss in solitude There is beauty in peace And content in silence No more wanting,  not needing but having  and loving
Everything feel like a blur.
Disregard color, race, sexual orientation, or creed.
Rings stretching from East to West formed in the crimson skies, Glowing pink, orange, and yellow above the setting sun,

Lets fly away to a paradise of peace. Lets go there and escape our reality. Forget about those who hate to see us together. We are in love. We are one. You are my other half. The stronger one. Lets go somewhere full of sunshine.
It fills the air, Without a care. It sings a song, All day long. It dances around, It pulses the ground. It envelops ears, It's everything we hear. It breathes, It weaves.
blistered skin, that whispers flayed. my life, a cage, to which I'm chained. Haunting voices, following close, the creeping utterances, my subtle foe. feet trimmed by velvet,
Growing. That's a scary thing to do. We don't realize that every day we change, little nuances in the way we move or speak. The way we cross the street. 
Belladonna     A beauty that illuminates such carnation hue   You defiled me with your sinful pleasure  
I open up my mind, and see the possibilities. Fantasy I always find. Space and time just reality. Peace signs around the world I always hoped, but every time I look around the world
Education will cure the cause of hate. Everyone should try to inform the rest. We can try to erase ignorance from the worlds full slate. Then we can really address the real cause of this mess.  
Oh sun, Oh sun How he does rise To watch the cheerful play, See him illuminate the skies, And hide before each day, Oh sun, oh sun What warmth he brings, To ever leaf and flower,
"Is that a rape whistle?" "No? It's A symbol of protest, A tool to elevate conversation, A vote for peace in Congo." Little boys are sent into war only defended with a whistle.
A sea away, Endlessly long days, No sleep at night, A few fights, Plenty of giggles New food that jiggles, Chance of a lifetime, Cost way more than a dime, Want to go back,
See I am, the creator, I write the lives, and the lies, that I tell, to keep me alive, and well, a dream, could this really be not reality, but pain, creates our world in reality, the rain, resemble tears that we shed, and I see, why god, won't
No matter how much I express myself and people sympathize to understand, there's still that part of me that's never really known. All alone. It craves to have light shed upon it,
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,
In this world, there is much hate. Is it a coincidence? Or is it fate? Years of bullying, discrimination, war, and rape How much more can we take? Peace is there, I just know it.
  Riding for miles, Your perfect smiles,   Silent conversations, Innocent flirtations,   The hot, sunny days, They passed me in a daze,   Mindless texts, Not knowing what comes next,  
Sometimes we disagree, But that’s okay. To be perfectly honest, I wouldn’t have it any other way. You’re always there, You’ve helped me grow, And you always know what to say,
Find yourself a simple peace, Calm your raging inner sea. Rain still falls deep in your heart, Let the drops wash away the lingering hurt. Let it all go before the rain turns to flood,
  7.046 billion people in the world 1,200 students at the average high school So many faces in the world So many people that are passed by   What would happen if there was a chain reaction?
I want to scream, scream, scream at the top of my lungs in anguish because I need to know that everything's okay. I'm afraid. I'm so afraid of something. I can't craft words around it. I just need your approval.
Most of us believe that we are free, But in reality, we are nothing more than a working bee. Most of us believe that the system is fair, But in reality, its only causing us pain.
 
Earth! what a small word for a bulbous creation,so much diversity, from cultures to racesfrom continent to countries, from places to nationswhat a gift God gave us for ages and ages
Why
Why is there death? Why is there sadness? Why can't we always be happy? How come friends aren't forever? Why can't we get along? Life is to short ...so why can't we make it better?
Poetry fills these pages music to some- a lament to others, a desire to be freed,  a desire to be heard,  a want,  a need to lose themselves in words express their pain, suffering
So we have rights We have the right to life and liberty, to the pursuit of happiness The right to worship however we like to freedom of speech and expression Sure we have some rights, and they make us who we are

I write what's on my mind, I write as if I was blind, I write what's in my heart. There's no formal training, Or guidelines I follow. Emotions are my direction, Feelings are my guide.
I wish I was the person I was, I wish I was the person I was. Wait a minute, The person I was, is the person I am. Forever changed by events called life. The person I was is hard to find,
Would you rather be in love OR would you rather be alone and heartbroken forever?   Would you rather learn and make your future successful OR would you rather have no future?
  I know all you have is me And that I will never be enough But I will bind our love together With such a force  I will shoot fireworks from the tip of my tongue every time I speak of you
Time ran outI stood stillFelt full of doubtLooked out of the windowsill And as I thoughtA little moreI heard a knockingAt my door
  My resolve is to live and to live a life like God. To live from the 5th dimension It’s weightless, timeless, limitless, boundary-less, and ageless My favorite from that is timeless.
Feet on ground Head in the sky Making plans for the future When I am barely getting by Just happy to be smiling So lucky to be alive Whether money grows on trees Or I am begging on my knees
   Remember when the world was happy? Neither do I.   
She wants it within herself....peace Because she can't get it from nobody else looking in the mirror seeing someone big and fat but she purges and binge so how come she see that
  Time rewind my past tracks,  As I hurtle towards the future.   I feel the need to fix the beat, When I cannot refuse it.   Limitations are a key confliction, Being quiet restricting,
three hearts beating out loud it speaks it listens  in the silent crowd hands interlock and we all meet in a circle where we quietly greet each other's rhythms beating as one
Feather Light Flakes Feather light flakes drift down from the sky, Dusting the flowers that only just died, Soaking through leaves that only just dried.   You wake up to silence
I walk into the class, Room nine and all I see are boys behinds I wish they would take school more serious cause what they're doing is delerious
The world is as ugly as it is beautiful, as evil as it is good, as cruel as it is kind, as cold as it is warm, as dark as it is bright— but you will always have a choice on which side to take.
Standing on the balcony square, I watched the August moon, Its gleaming light so fair, And I knew I would be leaving             Soon…soon.

Society has this picture, a picture thats perfect. Some are blessed with it, even though they dont deserve it. Sometimes I wonder how did I miss the drawing, its probably because im too busy in the background ooo-ing & aww-ing.
  You whisper nonsense in my ear so soft, so gentle I listen closely to the cadence of your voice lulling me to contentment. You laugh. My heart soars. It vibrates through my flesh.  
The sun was shining bright The morning he was alive The sun suddenly set At the time the soldier died The grass all around Is crimson with blood The child walks through With a crooked smile
Life could be serene and peaceful Like the waves of the ocean. Everyday activities could be graceful Like the waterfalls. People could be one family
Thoughts Within my head They Battle Attack Go for the throat What’s that you say? I question whether there will be a day A day where it all will pay Where all my skill and all my pain
As a little child I played in an open field of dreams Not having a care in the worldBut as time went by a fence started to build a barrier around me
If you don’t feel very happy, or if you just feel sad at this moment, I want you to go outside and stand there for a very long while and try to comprehend the fact that you are rare enough to be

It is vital to understand compassion as well as compassion for understanding. But this day in age is all about demanding. Join in for a revolution. Join in for this landing.
  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
Wait Blue Beloved, I want to tell you, let’s snuggle forever, and stay with me in bed sweetheartTimes will seem too hard to bear and I will feel like life is giving up on me
The cool summer rain Falls in soft sheets Enough for umbrellas, but not for raincoats; Enough for me, enough for peace.

We flew over glistening mountain snow inside of a lost warWar with ourselvesWar with our mindsIn a worldWith a night skyAs black as coal
Theology twisted, robbing the poor Sick religions have the saints misunderstood U.S. economy in it for self Rich stiff necked scholars still seeking knowledge But graduated from a top Ivy League college
Another war in the name of peace The rehearsed lie that you speak Your deceptive words are at a peak If you try to steal Liberty, she will make a creak   You are selected, not elected
I am a leader I am in control of own destiny I will not be discouraged I will not be dismayed For this journey that we call life Is just a game waiting to be played
Concrete wasn’t always made so harsh and solid In fact it was mostly straw When I walk without my shoes on It rubs my poor feet raw
Beaten is the pathBeneath the wandering feetOf those all lost in wayWho find themselves at peace  
Fear has returned in her eyes. Her eyes filled with indignant thoughtsTrying to call out for helpBut seems to have no effect
     
Liberation is like a ringing in your ear. Silence is like the golden sun. My friendship lasts like tree trunks. My pain is exhausted wildfire. Understanding is my unlocking key, and compassion is my locket.
City Streets of Chicago,  my hometown, my motto Everyday I hear on the news someone got shot, Bang Bang,Bang Bang,Bang Bang, 6 shot's fired, 3 dead  found in the parking lot.
I speak my peace I speak it loud I speak it clear I speak it proud. Hold my tongue? Not I. I let my emotions go so they can fly so very high. I multiply I by I just so I can find my peace. You see my eyes speak my desire.
Brunette locks frame her face like barber shop swirls. The bright ball of fury loyally looking down from high above kisses the apples of her cheeks. Trees sway like dancers to the beat of the wind.
Breathe sound, breathe calm Take long breathes, give long hugs Dance in the rain, let it take the pain away Breathe soft, breathe proud Speak out loud Cry, sleep, dream and repeat

  Surfers are different from normal people While normal people are tying down furniture  And boarding up windows Surfers are tightening their fins And waxing their boards
I can see, but I am blind. I can hear, though I am deaf. I can speak, yet I am mute. I find myself wandering, like a spirit, Walking the same path over. I cannot tell if a dream has taken me
Diversity: we are all different Diversity: we are all individual Without Diversity we’d be the same Everyone would like only vanilla ice cream
War
So many think that war is the answer, Yet is a cancer  Spell it backwards its raw  what is the cause of this nature  resources are depleting what are we meeting?
There is so much sadness in the world   What will it take to heal When murder Senseless murder Is committed every day        Genocide Is in every corner Of this planet Look around you
Late lonely nights I wander aimlessly in the thick, suffocating darkness that dances in envy around the glistening liquid moonlight
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, 
As a young girl, I believed life to be bitter, full of emptiness, and unfilled dreams. Bleak somber days claimed my soul, lively hope did not reside here, and passion did not ooze from within.
The smell of spruce The glistening fir The cloudy cool I know for sure The gentle rain It fills the air It cleans the earth It damps my hair The mountains sigh With refreshing need
The world has loads of unwanted things Things that we think make us happy Our trust has been broken Broken like broken records our beloved Michael had done time &time again Our lives have seen enough
A heart frozen from pain and hurt can have it all melt away from the touch of love and passion, the shadow of depression can be swallowed by the light of serenity, in a dream the heart follows the path it chooses in life the mind constricts and di
I see it . I see it ! I see the blackhole of hate racing to my presence , then into my veins. I hate it , but it consumes me every minute I am around it.
Planet Earth where I reside Created by Him, who gave me life Sent me here for a purpose to fulfill To set goals and achieve, to strive Our society is condemning Humanity is painfully amuck

Snatch up the children. Taking away lives from them. Do you know how much pain you cause for the families and to them? They don't belong to you. The world is such a cruel place. Filled with such sin.
Tears of saddness Fears of abandonment Reckless disobedience Heart broken and unwanted Is anybody out there Life seems so unfair Just when it seems life is going to end You're always there

Social destruction, conflicts arise Pathological behavior, responsible for demise Money spent on weapons of mass destruction  Lives are lost, a significant deduction 
"Whenever I miss you I tell my heart no. I then close my eyes and let the memories roll. Out of my eyelids and straight down my cheeks. Pouring into the pillow that captures my dreams. And as my heart sinks when the images do fade..
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;
You said you would be my shining starLook into the night skyI know where you are
I write to take away the pain That memories can bring I write to offer up my thoughts To anyone or thing   I write to express anger and fear In ways I can’t with voice
Tell me, is this how we are to live? Where drugs, weapons, and sex hold or generation captive When did education start being a choice instead of a requirement?
Tell me how you feel when the wind gets strong enough to blow you over. Why do I try? Taking in everything that's happened, How do I forget? It'll blow over and everything will seem fine,
Poetry...words that merely chose me Opened my eyes and heart in ways the world cannot see I was lost...trapped in sadness that would last Fought continuously with the darkness of my past
Peace I thought I found on solid ground, yet in my heart I am not sound.  My name entails and tells a tale Of a sorrowful one, journey without fail.   Deidre - she spoke, upon my birth
Nothing was simple, not even before.  Unanswered questions appeared at the door. For months nothing seemed to make sense anymore.  But we sang about peace, just like children.
All their voices tell me I fell, Tripped myself while wading in mud. My heart only craved to be known. For agonizing lengths of time I'll have to endure The piece of me that is alone.  
 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.
Sitting on these cold, wet, muddy grounds. Nobody will ever know or feel this but me. Starring at the skies filled with stars, reminds me of the lightbugs back home. My heart beat gets stronger by the second.
As tears fall, we let our emotions hold is captive. This is massive! We must allow His spirit to become ACTIVE, in our lives. We are down and we wonder who will be there I'm here,
Water, Shelter, Food...Poetry It's just as vital to living a healthy life A way to express one's thoughts Helping to cope with everyday strife.   How could you even begin to take action
  At times life is golden. Made of sweet honey, a sunny afternoon, a smile, warm hugs, the perfect lemonade. When time floats, and the clouds sail serenely across the sky. Those are the highlights of life. The memories.
What is a poem? Really? A page--blank without words Words--bold, yet impossible without letters Letters--lines, scratches, dots So small, so miniscule,
The algae, the moss, and the mud. While they could never understand the chemical reactions going on inside our heads, They remain ever accepting of our presence.
(poems go here) Why I write… I write to get my feeling out So that when people read my poems They’ll say,
  As her head lays on my chest, I feel the knot in my throat grow. Tears begin to fall down my face.  And all I can feel is sorrow.  God will never leave me empty. 
A changing world we live in Where are the times when logic was alive Where fast killing booming sticks didnt kill the young, causing castrophic dive, A place where we seek ever lasting peace,
World without hate Is one without fright One where the darkness Is diminished by the light   One where all people Are happy at peace And discrimination Has finally ceased  
The roads are dark, lost in direction.  No way to turn, my path is lost-- I can’t see, where is the Light?  Turn right, turn left, I do not know?  Wherever I go, I cannot see. My heart pounds, it’s so dark!
The sea shimmers like sunlight on chrome Loud crashing waves and soft silky sand are my living room The beach is the place I call home   My home is unlike the old empire of Rome
I built a place of brick and stone, Somewhere to lay my head, The light shines through the southern face, A window near my bed.   This place I made shields me from all, The elements outside.
Never leave my side and never let me go. And I promise I'll do the same for you, as long as your love shows. Yes, I believe I belong here. Yes I want to stay in your heart, if I may.
I’m staring into the skies above A gentle wind is rustling my hair And tickling my skin It beckons me to come forth
(poems go here)you are like a flower but it won't stay forever so never be proud.  
I wake up from a dream. A dream of walls.                 of restrictions The walls of fear are closing in now. Gasp.     Gasp. Pen.        Paper. My fear has defiled the pure white page.
It was a question that plagued me even in my dreams and begged for a reply Why haven’t we changed? Obscure, it seemed it was, when a stranger approached me
With every closing of my eye, It opens to the scary world. I see hate and fear towards one another. We no longer work hand in hand, But dog eat dog.   The fight for success,
When eyes are sprinkled across the sky Do we ask where they were pulled from? Are they from the brave? The walls that fight, who protect and stand for our rights?
Justice for Trayvon Their will be. No more unfair inequality Jury, judge all knew this was wrong. What more evidence do you need for the case of young Trey?
It all started in Africa where Adam was a bachelor.
  If they don't know your dreams They can't shoot them down. Open your eyes child, those pyros are burning 'round. Emptyed my bowl filled with hopeless immunities.
silence. that's all there was.  emptiness. i open my mouth and no words come out. screaming. my head wants to burst out all of the thoughts and cries scrambling around. but there is only silence.
Looking around the world was like looking at a wound . So terrifing alot of pain , so awful that i could not look at it the second time.As a homeless child ,it was a disaster of life.
As the years go by As the months come near, I already know That death is here.   It comes so quiet You can hardly here, The whispers of death And my soul in fear.  
Hi, Im Zyra. Eyes stare, long straight hair Dark innocent face, Tight coiled hair, stareing back with a glare First thing they notice is, shes black Disgusted faces and rude remarks mumbled under their breaths
End of the day Beginning of the night Bird’s aerial north Neither misplacement nor mistake World at a firm Streets at allay Peaceful and scenic
Waves breaking on a quiet shore Darkening drier sand once more I stand searching the horizon Breathing in, feeling enlivened I hold adventure beneath my arm Yearning to run where the big waves are
Man's world unfolds fool's gold and wild vanities untold   The sake of being pious is valued at minus Ruthless is cherished as highness   Brandished guns and sharpening knives
Take a seat by me, pleases see what I see.   the leaves are growing wildly toward the sky, growing tall, bent, and unformed like a wave in the sea.   their leaves are of the brightest green,
I write because I have a story to tell. A story of hurt, pain, and depression. I write to relieve pain. To try to foget the past. I write to spill the secrets of the past. I write to tell others that it will be okay.
Nations that grow weeds Fall, but buds grow back again, And they bloom once more.
Young and innocent at 17 years old His life and fate stands in the hands of a man so cold Mis judgment of character and based upon looks Zimmerman took it upon hisself for the life he took.
A few million dead War ain't easy it is said Just the way it is?
What is does it mean to have an ideal society? To be free? We may live in the land of the free but are we really free?
As the rich get richer the poor are gettin poorer we are all one spieces like a horse is a horse they get it they look out for each other like a lion is a lion hunting together surviving together
I write for the world. Its skies of blue stretching uniqueness across the planet Revealing its luster and foliage for all the universe to see
Who is considered  an "American"? Is an "American" based on whether you and your family were born on this country or how hard you worked to pass your citizenship test?
How could you fight the unknown with no remorse? When they are simply… the unknown? Like in wars, or battles How could you go about, scream and shout, over people you have never seen?
War
Trotting through the hot narrow alley, rifle on my back. My companion to my left: Richard, I think. The sound of gunfire boiling in the distance.
  And after the storm We will rest in long moments suspended. We will walk with grounded steps On familiar land, And trust our feet to lead us home. We will dress ourselves
Here I Walk Alone On This Street,Not Knowing My Life Would Innocently Be Taken From Me,Why Do Us Children Have To Be So Shattered, Hard times And Hard Struggles Is What Happens In Life But,Sometimes It's Just Too Much To Continue, Trayvon Isnt A I
It sure is something when one is killed, blindsided -  he simply does not see it coming. It is then something else when one can see it coming, but has not the slightest change or hope in stopping it.
Art is the millisecond one awakes from a coma,
You want an idea of human rights,but are you ready to listen to the fights.Listen, listen carefully to my rhymes,about the absurd things occurring in prime time.You know about these absentees,
I recall that pulse of summer, vivacious and lively when I first met you. Fall sprang into worlds of color, I learned the meaning of Love is Blue.   Through the winter, snow sparkled down.
We live in a world where there’s so much hardship, pain, and suffering We live in a world where there’s you and me but there’s hardly ever we And when there is it’s because we’re fighting against an enemy
Long ago in the old folk’s place A boy with innocence on his face Came to knock on the gated door   The man behind it saw a child there With blue eyes and mussed blonde hair
Love joy peace to these we wish to comply The morals of which our ancestors applied We try to reach humanity with our peace talks and love speeches
  Sometimes you have to choose what is what you looking for Not all the time you may want to get what is seen Sometimes you may think that this world we live in It’s only a part of our imagination
What does writing mean to me?  It's a way to make my words flow, like wind through trees.  A way to show on paper, the picture in my mind.  Despite the fact that I can't draw and my painting skills are way behind, 
I am a ransomed hypocrite; The worst of sinners. A lying murdering, spiteful, adulterer. I am a Christian and I've done worse things than you.
I am a ransomed hypocrite; The worst of sinners. A lying murdering, spiteful, adulterer. I am a Christian and I've done worse things than you.
God is my everything. Everything meaning my all, my every consuming thought, my guide, my way. Where he is I always strive to stay and my relasionship with him grows everyday. He is my father, my teacher, my bestfriend.
In life we seek to find the truth No matter of the age, old or youth The Universe stands still in harmony Good and Bad in matrimony The sun does not set and moon does not rise

In the eyes of God we are all the same. Human. One life. One name.  So why cant people realize that we are all the same? I dont care what color your skin shines and soaks  in. I dont care if your gay, straight or lesbian.
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
I see the light It flashes and passes by me Another day.......another month and year passes I don't see how life is supposed to be purposeful  When all people do is walk on by  I am now gone
When it's cold in the night we shall fight for our rightWe want shame to be goneFrom the land of the lightThe queen of the night is afraid of our might She teaches us the Qur'an Indeed an evil sprite

Trayvon, I'd like to know your favorite color. Maybe you have more than one, but it's okay. We all taste the rainbow one day So tell me its red.....like the dark crimson slowly seeping slowly from your soul.
And so I cried. Not for myself or to cause a scene but because if loosing you meant loosing a piece of me then I would let you go just to know you're finally at peace. It's sickening is it? Because the thought of that made me happy.
Sleep you beautiful thing you  cradle me in your arms and whisk me away into darkness let my breath soften with murmurs  of adventure   as i sink into everlasting    peace

Hey there, just writing you a note, a chance to know me better; Informing you that your potential has not already been achieved. It’s funny how you don’t notice me but I’m right there at the altar.
I don’t know where I’m going, but how I get there’s up to me I give myself extra time for things I need to complete I still search for my four-leaf clover in a field of threes
(poems go here)Blinded by the light, wondering what brings the speeding thoughts rushing through my mind. Sorting through the piles of emotions, memories, and present feelings to find an understanding of who I am.
Strangers and unknown people, I feel your stare, No matter where you are. Poking your nose too far into extremity, Searching for secrets that don’t even exist; Go look elsewhere because we do not respond,
sometimes I lie alone on the grass under a grey sky in the dead heat of summer and I see before me the future stretching out as far and as gloomily as the sky and I wonder:

The sweet serene a comfortable silence I recognize and think of tomorrows and forevers   A loneliness welcomed A hug for myself A different time would not be like so
My Generation is  full of cruel jokes, vulgar photos and lost youth. People who act as if they’ve been raised with the least bit of couth.I have proof.
Life is such a scary thing One minute its complete and total bliss But the next its full of despair There is no way of knowing why or when It will all come to an end Loved ones are lost
My bed is awesome laying down and lounging Just complete relaxation
I heard on the news the other morning that another child had been killed. And as I sat there listening to the emotionless reporter talk about his death I felt the tears roll down my cheek.
Peace washes over me in the hushed forest Weak winds embrace me drifting over the ground   Bits and pieces of sunlight Gazes trhough the trees  giving the forest a tender alluring glow  
The sun sleeps And grey weaved Cotton balls envelope The moons shine Glimmers of eyes peak through And smiles streak the sky   Everything is dueling under A black cloak
"Happy birthday," I whisper,  Even though I know  You can't answer, but you're smiling  Down on me Everyday.

I think the Earth was crying, Because I woke up and there was rain. I think the world is dying, Because we cause it constant pain. What are we doing to God’s creation? -Hang our heads in shame.
With the touch of my hand to the paper, I am powerful I am free My pen is my messenger, and I am the queen Everything in my kingdom holds shards of me
Growing up on the south side of Chicago Michael Jordan a.k.a my only hope for tomorrow Playing ball and acting all hard Shooting free throws til' my mama said it was too dark I had a lot of energy when I was a kid
I write, and who for, but for you? I write for the twilights to come, I write for peace among men, peace in their hearts and souls, The wild nights, the worldly sights,
