*Mind, Heart, Soul*

Trisha M Barrek Hopkins


-Mind- 

 

You are always on my mind 
Too sweet 
So kind 
When I'm cold you're my heat 
Someone just like you I won't ever find 
No one else i want to find 
Your love always makes me blind 
Right next to me will always be your seat 

 

-Heart- 


You'll always be in my heart 
So deep 
Never part 
When you're with me I cant sleep 
I knew we were meant to be from the start 


-Soul- 

 

You are apart of my soul 
You are all around me 
To keep in touch will be my goal 
I'm not ever setting you free 
You're a precious memory forever I will hold 
Apart of my soul you will always be 
You are worth more then gold 
You are dear that I hope you see 

 

You will always be in my mind 
You will always be apart of my heart 
You will always be connected to my soul 
And the memories will never end

*Only The Strong Will Survive*

March-21-2007 
Trisha M Barrek Hopkins


Leave me in heaven if i should die 
Help my soul if i shall cry 
When i fall help me shake it off 
Help me believe only the strongest will survive 
It s time to go 
Help me and my heart thrive 
Just ride with the flow 
God let me know 
Tell me my shadow will remain on the wall 
And when i look down at the ground it will still be below 
I will stay 
Try to stay alive 
Go out with my kids to play 
And be stronger then the demons i may hold 
Or The depressions and stress i may buildup inside 
And try to forget the evil I've been told 
And be able to see the crisp blue of the day 
I will try to not become greedy for gold 
Because Only the strongest will survive 
I will always protect my sacred ground 
For no one can destroy my will 
For each day will become the past 
And the power to live i have found 
My strength will forever last 
For i have no need for a fun pill 
For only the strongest will survive 
Leave me in heaven when i die 
Show me the way 
To save us all 
How to erase my darkest day 
Because i plan on standing tall 
We remain hand on hand 
There is a wonder in peoples eyes 
And always one set of footprints in the sand 
Even though i still hear the echo of my pasts cries 
The salty tears i once in awhile see 
Rolling down my face 
Trying to not believe 
My hearts moving at a faster pace 
As i begin to float upward toward the midnight sky 
Where in heaven im meant to rest 
Finally i am allowed to die 
Or maybe it s just a test 
God my be playing to see how far 
My will can with stand the cards i am dealt 
Or to see if my evil away will melt 
Because only the strongest will survive 
I do know i want to remain alive 
For i will protect my days i have on this earth for a very long time 
Because god could take me up to heaven in a drop of a dime

*Fate Has Brought Us Together*

Trisha Barrek Hopkins
Sun 5/25/2008 8:10 AM 


I believe for me there is a soul mate 
And that we are meant to be 
And what brought us together again was fate 
Deep down inside i pray this you see 

 

I promise to you i will take care of your heart 
I promise i'll try not to make you cry 
Ill make sure you never fall apart 
I promise to send chills down your spine 
And make your feelings fly 
I only ask of you to always be mine 

 

Fate has brought us together 
I believe this is it we're meant to be 
I promise to love you forever 
And if you trust me you'll be able to believe 
That you are the only one for me

*All These Tears*

October.19.1998 
Trisha M. Barrek Hopkins


All these lies 
I'm getting sick of them 
Sometimes I think I should say my good-byes 
They are growing so fast like an infested stem 

 

You tell me one thing 
Then you tell me another 
Your promises you never bring 
It's amazing we're still together 

 

I try to hold on 
But you make me so mad 
To the point I can't take it anymore 
Letting go will only make me sad 
These lies and promises are becoming a bore 

 

I love you too much 
But all these lies got to leave 
Even though I'll miss your soft gentle touch 
One day I'll be gone then you'll believe 
That i got fed up with all these lies 
It became too much 

 

no more kissing 
No more blue skies 
You'll be missing 
No more lies 
Stop now before it's too late 
Stop before I lose all fate

*Silent Melody*

September.8.2000 
Trisha M Barrek Hopkins


Only i can hear this silent melody 
So loud and clear 
So bright and true 
So lovely i shed a tear 
Nobody understands what I'm going through 
No one understands this fear 
That's trapped inside 
Nobody wants to hear 
So i just stay to myself i just hide 
No one yet has told me for me they care 

 

My heart hurts every night 
When it's time to go to sleep 
This pain inside i try my hardest to fight 
But all i can do is weep 

 

No one wants to listen 
In my eyes 
There's no shine 
They don't even glisten 
All I have are my midnight cries 
And my silent Melody 
Sitting there right along my side 
Watching as time flies by 
I'm trying my hardest, my best 
Not to let the rest of me die 
Mean while with my tears no cares if i hide

*Looking Into This Heart of Mine*

September.14.1998 
Trisha M. Barrek Hopkins


Look into this heart of mine 
Look down deep and low 
And see if you can find 
How hard it is to show 

 

How it feels when your around 
Tell me what you feel...What you hear 
Explain the unexplained sound 
Could it be this falling tear

 

Look into this heart of mine 
When you came into my world one day 
See how my eyes opened and shined 
I was speechless and nothing to say 

 

Because the first time i laid my eyes on you 
I wanted you from the start 
I can see in your eyes your true 
Now i know i can give you my heart

*Forbidden Love*

February.20.2000
Trisha M. Barrek Hopkins

Between the two of us
Is where our feelings remain 
I don't know why he is making a fuss
My respect he will not gain

Not as long as the subject is about the skin
It's about the feelings between us two
No matter what way I look at it I cant win
I'd probably be disowned if he ever knew


But at this point I don't care
I cant ignore this feeling
We have this magic we share 
It all has a meaning 

 

So why cant he understand 
Why cant he see past the color
It's that I don't want to be with no other man
Explain? Why do I bother

 

Forbidden love between two
Why can't he let things be 
These feelings I wish he knew
The magic we hold I wish he could see

 

Between the two
We care for each other
I'll never feel the way you always do
No matter what he and I will always be together

 

But no he's stubborn to try
These feelings the two of us share 
I'm so upset I can cry
About the skin I wish he wouldn't care

 

These feelings kept to myself
All building up I feel like I could die 
I keep this book on the shelf
It's because I freely cant wear these feelings on my shirt
It's not fair
This negativity is making me hurt
The way I feel he doesn't care

 

The way I feel means nothing to him 
He has nothing positive to say
To him this love he doesn't believes in 
For God to change his mind I pray

 

Each and every night 
I just want him to look into his heart
And hopefully look past the sight

*Once Again*

July.12/13.2011
Trisha M Barrek Hopkins

 

I gave you my heart
And you ripped it out of my chest
Now I'm in pieces
A total wreck falling apart
You're just like all the rest

 

Feed me lies no respect
God really made a fool out of me
I extremely failed the test
My heart he couldn't even protect
This guy was the best
He's the one that gave me the greatest pain

 

I thought I could be happy
But you from all the others
You were the brightest
You got me to believe all your lies
Instead of a sunny day
All I have are black clouds and rain
At night all I hear
Again are my cries
Once again I trusted you with my soul
All you left behind is this evil stain

 

My last hopes you stole
You capturing me in you web of distrust
Was your only goal
My only heartbeat that was left
To take it from me was your gain
You weren't here for love
You made me feel disgust

 

How could you feed me lines
Once again you got me to let down my wall
Entrapping me in your vines
Waiting in the background
In the shadows not making a sound
Watching and waiting for me to fall

 

When you seen your chance
You crept in like and ass
Skipping out on his rent
And captured my heart in your romance
Only to stay till your time was spent
Then you spun me in your dance

 

You quickly disappeared without a trace
You went through that door
Never again to see your face
You let go of me
To watch me crash to the floor
The pain you caused you didn't dare see

 

You came and took
What you wanted to take
You came and left without a second look
All along you were just a fake

 

Once again
I'm left alone
To pick up the pieces off the ground
My body turning to stone
May should God has almost found
I should of remained by my self
....All Alone!

Five Year Journey

The weather is well

The sky is blue

The day anew

The little birds wake and sing

We wake because our alarms ring

I can’t tell

If that was the screams in my head or

The school bell

I’m inside

Inside again

Inside myself

Translation of my ideas, I’m deaf

Sympathetic to several causes

Seemingly smart with scarce solutions

Often imagining the future

Taking the high way in the maze of life

Road block

Stagnated, frustrated

Angst

Initially, but it evolved courageously

It’s hard to understand ourselves

Time is the patron of change

 

Now that I get it

Or

That I think I get it

I’d like to rewind

And restart the picture I painted

Purify the person I tainted

Use the colors that I wish I used

My eyes see nothing new, I’m unamused

Now there’s nowhere to memorize just open your mind

Analyze every line

Because all the world’s a stage

Regressed to Illiteracy 

In my book I can’t seem to turn the page 

Learning till the day I die

Consumption of corruption because it’s easy

 

Though,

Our interests are mutual

Alone like my daily ritual

Instant satisfaction

Failing to ponder and think critically

Why don’t we ask why

By social stigma we act cynically

To me my shadow is colorful

Full

The feeling we search for

Push and pull

Two sides seen by only two eyes

Left & right, black & white

Understanding is out of sight

Success

Maybe

I might

Still figuring it out

 

Silence kisses my lips

Only talking when we take sips

Beats my heart skips

My conscious flows in the veins of my eyes

My tongue is red like my lies

Tarnished are my teeth and my thoughts

And without purpose my soul rots

The human hand is the door knob to a person

But my hands are locked in fists

Wrinkles in our palms

The fleshy manifestation of our route through life

Legs like ruined Roman columns

Glory with revitalization

Destruction with mistreatment

Only if he comes to a sooner realization

He’ll become a traitor of stag-nation

Author's Notes/Comments: 

My first written poem. The title simply signifies the teenage years and I feel as if it really dug deep into my 17 year old head. Please tell me what you thought of it.
