When we were children, we believed that growing up was the way to freedom. That maybe if we were just a little bit older, we could destroy our demons. But somehow we found out the truth.
Staring up at the midnight sky, hear the quiet passing by. We can't get those thoughts out of our head, so we keep them in until we are dead. Twinkling stars that are shining so bright,
I didn’t want to wake up. I wanted to play dead Being blind and not even knowing it Daily activities going through life in a daze Running, always chasing trying not to be caught
Smiles are sunrises and spring flowers. They rise and grow from the joys of life. So smile. And bring beauty into this world.
Throughout our childhoods, we’re taught to trust in the things shoved down our throats by the tv screens, We don’t know they're lies of course, It’s all so real to us, it’s all we know,
I’ve always wondered how wonderful the world would be if we all just embraced each other A hug for one person to another A kiss to make somebody’s day Some loving to make the pain go away
If I was an inanimate object I wouldn't feel the things I feel But If I was an inanimate object Nothing would be quite as real I'd never be sad
Empty pages that stare back, So pure and clean, Untainted with words, And the markings of my imagination. Was that not how I was before? Ignorant, and in bliss Not caring for the world.

It is weird that I am here. Trapped. On a beautiful island I cannot call my home. I have no cell phone, no coffee, no friends of my own. Deserted, I feel..alone.
Back and forth Back and forth Scanning the lines Finding the rhymes Eyes flicker and flit Watch the words split Feeling the pain Dancing in the rain Alongside the unsung hero
On this island it's just me and you. You have everthing I need all in one. Without you it's like I'm missing what is important to me. On this island it's just you and me.
What is left of the past, When we walk down the streets, The ones we lived upon, And the seem to be an empty memory. The faded pictures of people we knew, An old recording of me and you.

I need love I need to love and be loved I need a driving force In this cold and eternal world I need love I need love

A crime each day Took care of by people What should we pay? Should we go more to the steeple? Why do we do such things? How can we be mean? Hear the church bell ring
As humans develop coming from a small origin. I learned that life will be worthless without humor. Ladies and Gentleman, humor will bring the smell of spring and the scenes of summer to you.
I sit here in the corner not wanting to breath I feel like I have no one here to protect me Hearing my mother scream and shout

Traveling is what many long for, To travel when and where you want. To travel the world is to live free, To live free, is to live happy. Happiness is not a destination,
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.
There's a river I know, in the land of the dead, where many call home, and others may dread. There's a city I know, where the parties are gold, where the liquor is silver,

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
The day they said the world was to end and so the day the world waited for with fears but no signs of it all and the day's work went as usual and on schedule and some as late as usual
Don't let your guard down... Everyone is coming, hitting me left and right Fists of emotional fury, is there a way out? How did i come in? There might be a key... but what do i have to pay to get it?
What you see on the outside of me is a young freckled girl as confident as can be. She can stand and talk in front of people with ease, and take charge of situations in a breeze.

Blood drips from murderous assaults Onto the rich soil of the earth Its crimson essence cries to all That Life will no longer give birth
People judge by the mirror's expectations. They don't look inside with appreciation. Maybe people aren't always outwardly beautiful, But that does not mean their souls are dull.

In this small world where we live in, Where "busy" is the only word leaving our mouths, Where our feet are stuck in the past, Is there any path towards the future? Without any thought about our actions,
Looking at the ground,
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
Silent bliss and noisy joy, there's no method to the madness. A question with no complete answer.
Am I the child that begs? The child that wants more, Because I'm hungry but not for food? Am I the child that crawls? The child on hands and knees, Because I can't take a step but can walk?

The irony of cold Yet leaves still grow The eyes in the sky keep on starring deeply into your signs What more can it be? Yet thy truthful growth of oneself turns away
Dogs don't fly, Chickens just die, Why try to get by, If we are meant to die? Are we alone on this dot? Suspended in space, so far from it all. But yet we kick and moan,

When you're left alone
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
Shades of black collide above, jostling each other Lines of stars bright and white, so vividly wild. Wind sheathing our bodies with every gust, Black leaves cascading downward into a dark swirl.
I watched a bluebird on a window sill She sat there placid, calm, and singing. We shared the morning sun out in the chill, We let its rays shine down on our faces; freezing.
In a moment
I've traveled the map of you -
A filter Nothing but a misconstrued version of normal light Changing context from wrong to right Take away this glass magnifying falsehoods and repressing flaws
You have one heart, love as much as you can. You have one brain, always be willing to learn. You have one soul, be peaceful. You have two lungs, appericate every breath you take.

The scales are perfectly balanced. The world is a balance. Just like the Earth itself is a balance While a volcano erupts with boiling magma, there's an ocean out there filled with calmness
Times are real hard they say, whether referring to the past or referring to today
Everything beautiful is either immensely frail or immensely strong. Memories, frozen in time, lasting one second. Lasting a thousand seconds. They are beautiful because they are so fleeting in our minds.
Peaceful rosary, The moon and the sky. A tree line’s lazy lush Screaming inside me A microscopic colony Quiet vitality I don’t know how The world got so beautiful

“You walk funny.” These words have plagued my school experience. No one knows the reason behind this walk, They don’t know that my muscles don’t work and I’m slower than the rest

What if the world was a box And we were trapped inside What if it’s shut-up with locks On each and every side How do we escape Does anyone know How do we escape This never ending show

Beauty is in the Eyes of Society Growing up, I was never skinny; my skin was dark and all I wanted was to be pretty. I was 10; looking at magazines, seeing all of the skinny girls

What has happened to our world? Yes that's not the most creative line ever but seriously, what happened? What happened to respect or manners? What happened to loving your neighbor?
I am a bird, unnoticed but free
Even though I'm freckled and thick Even though I'm blind and poor Even though I'm short and white Your words don't hurt me anymore I've come to learn what it's all about
They say there's no such thing as perfect But I happen to know that talk is cheap Flawless is the best thing to be To be who I am I must accept who I am Flawless is just an act that lays beneath
Life is our ball
The only way, it seems,
It's tough to be real In a world of hate and debt I keep to myself
We sore we fly, we fly into the future, present, and past. As a baby is born new, smooth, and warm
Time Night fades away, as the sun warms the air. The voices are still , the air is thinner today. Noon creeps above the clouds, as not even a sound has bound.
This world is so full of hate, so full of pain. People starve and go hungry, People war and die,
I hate it,
Between Creation and Destruction Lies creature, creed, cure, cry Desire, despair, and danger.
I am carbon a diamond in the rough still dull with jagged edges I've been through heat and under lots of pressure but I still don't shine people look and stare in my direction
There is a lot of flaw In an adolescent girl Leading a women’s ministry, Judged by the world. There is a lot of sadness In an adolescent girl Motivating others, Smiling at the world.
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
When I used to look in the mirror, I would see A girl who struggled, but yet was sometimes pretty. I struggled with my relationship with my family. Although they clothed, fed, housed, and spoiled me,
When I dared to finally take my own steps, and when I dared to go my own direction, I found and learned about myself without the intention. I left my home country and studied abroad
We live in a world where we accept lies and deny truths A Female accepts lying she ends up crying her soul is dying letting the pain stay
Stop it I'm sorry kids But yes, There's no afterlife And we will die You wonder why I did this Melted ice caps and Starved kids As if Because I know I can tell you
There I sat staring As every color flew by Oceans of madness
i feel trapped secluded like in a closed box i look around faces all around me passing me by forgetting im here i yell and scream but no one stops
Growing up, I wanted to fulfill my parents dreams. Be a doctor, become a suregon. I wanted all that and then some. I wanted to go into the military, and attach fallen limbs.
No matter big or small I look to change it all The fuel we use in cars The rocket ships to Mars You say it can't be done Yet I know I'll be the one To make the fastest plane
A BETTER PLACE WITHOUT If only we could hold on to water but at a grasps
I'm on top of the world he said in the next breath, he proclaimed, That we all fall. Its kind of funny how we're all taught, how we all bought into the lies that we all sought.
Even in all the aftermath
In the world, Love is lost, Hearts are broken, Along with bones and spirits, People die, People cry, People cheat, And people lie, Men are murderers, While poverty is persistent,
Like children playing
This is my poem.
We've got the world in our open hands. With just a tap of finger, we've accessed the Web. This dimensional universe of knowledge that contains the world.
Everyone sees the world, but how exactly do we see it? That person sees starving Africans, this person sees people who never had a chance. That person sees a homeless man,
She was jogging late one evening As every night she did Aware not of the treachery That falling darkness hid
These hands, that you once held I gave away to the wind because at least they know how to hold something
Sometimes I wonder If we could fly like the birds Would we come back down?

The pitfalls of man, though shallow, stay d
Adrenaline I want the most pure and enlighteningrush of adrenaline any human could ever experience.But how?
Do you ever look up at the night sky And wonder why we are here? This world is full of beauty you can't deny, And there's nothing to fear. We work hard each and every day To provide for our family.
Hope. It runs deep. Deeper than any mineshaft, Tunnel or crevice within the world. Versatile, yet universal to all. It doesn’t hesitate, procrastinate Or assimilate. Hope is…
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."
Foreward: Below is an account of my actions and feelings upon learning the loss of a friend.
Everyday is a living day As i see people come and go by For some people is tragedy For some others is heaven Twenty-two seven, Wandering in the streets Writing my life on these sheets
7 billion people in the world as of today Asians, Africans, Europeans, we got it each and every way What makes us different? The color of our skin or how we look?

She takes flight. All the light in those babydoll eyes. Broken. Soars away from these hardships. Tender hands burned. In this seemingly painless discuise. Don't leave me in the darkness.
