Breathe in Breathe out As the first fragrances of the world around you Tickle your nose And the scent of your mother's silky hair And your dad's calloused hands Fill your heart with warmth and security
Another day stuck in dismay Rain clouds follow me everywhere Just another bad day they say I know they don't even care
I have a cat, and then I had three, four, five. Alonelyness. Feeling the world caving in, the door to a better life closing day by day. Alonleyness.
You saw me there yelling for help You didn't care You saw the pain You could have helped me up You knocked me down instead You kept hurting me You didn't care
One day you will realize how much you hurt us physically and mentally One day you will see the pain in our faces One day you will noticed how many lives you ruined
I wake up, 5 am as usual I get ready for the torture ahead I arrive at school I walk down the hall to my first class I sit down "GROSS!"
Is it the motion in which we move? The slip of the tongue, The dialogue that foreign language so happily sung, Humans are all symmetrical rhythms full of bumps and cracks. Imperfections and private fears,
Ridiculed, the punch-line to every joke. Do not tell me what to do, I am not a part of you. Don't you know it hurts? The scars gather as well as the tears. Deeper they dig into my skin. Fears.
Feeling lost and so alone No one to turn to Somedays you just gotta hold your own Empty heart and broken dreams No one to turn to All alone and ripping at the seams Beaten down and can't get up
Am I a can? They categorize me, say it's what I am. But I am not made of tin, don't hold soup inside me.
The power of inhumanity, Oh how it sickens the remedy of true empiricism and how it swallows the color of a tender rainbow
Imagine a world where no one cares how you look like. Imagine a world full of peace where everyone loves you, for who you are, Whether you are gay, colored, or believe in a certain religion.
I love falling. Tripping, Aching, Hurting my knees. I love being hurt. I adore the gnawing pain and heartache, And I revel in the feeling of loss. The words, "No, you can't!"
Shattered My words are shattered on my tongue Slicing my gums Too afraid to swallow But the words are broken Will not come out They cut up my insides Because I have not let them out
We walk together Over and over I see your face Sparkling with delight and shining with beauty You've heard my voice As gratitude of your presence
You've hidden the true meaning of words Words escape your mouth in a blur You deem them only necessary I deem yours false You see me to be crazy But the truth has come out I am merely me
What is wrong with our nation? I don't know why our lives revolve around discrimination. We have our share of freedom but just a little taste. We abuse our power by putting others down.
Did anyone hear about the LONELY BUG? It's going around like a crazy giving out lonely hugs You can never tell when it's coming One day you'll just find yourself giving in To all the pressures of the world
Well I know what I need. And that need is to sleep. And just as I begin to drift my thoughts began to creep. That's when I lose it. The hurtfull things they say bother me more than I'd like to admit.
who are we to judge what others like who they date to make fun of them to bully them all because of a 3 letter word GAY aren't we all are gay really we are but we just don't know it
Snap awake I'm full of fear Oh, its another nightmare Can't escape the staring faces running races I just can't win can't win
Passion By Austin Easley
I don't need your pessimism. I don't need your false hope. I don't need your tears. I don't need your pain. I don't need your broken heart. I can do bad all by myself.
I am walking through stone hallways can anyone hear what my soul is dying to purge? They are throwing bricks as I pass. Is it the shoes? The prom queens lies? Is it my refusal? I will not conform.
