STRONG

not broken?

 tormented

dispair

but not broken

an angel

who crash landed

in this terrible world

we call home

such a disgrace

the pain

she endures

yet, so much beauty

lay upon her face

Bulletproof

Folder: 
Miscellaneous

Hateful words like sharp knives,

scratching away at the surface.

Disdainful eyes to my surprise,

Claiming I have no purpose.

My skin has hardened,

so has my poor soul.

My once optimistic mind,

Is now as black as coal.

Sticks and stones may break bones,

But words will surely hurt me.

Desperate to impress others,

show them how cold you can be.

Ugly, Stupid, Bitch, and Fatty

were many of my names.

Seeing who could make me cry,

was their favorite game.

But that solemn little girl,

Who used to shrink away in fear.

Has long since died from tears she cried,

That child is no longer here.

Say what you have to say,

try your best to get beneath my skin.

I will remain unaffected,

so let your games begin.

I will no longer try to hide,

To try to avoid the things you say.

For all those people who targeted me,

They will surely pay.

They expected me to crumble and fall,

to be crushed by simple words,

Understand my weakness is gone,

I am no longer that quiet nerd.

I am stronger than I was back then,

I am way stronger than my youth.

So keep on spraying hateful words,

My skin is bulletproof.

More Than Just Me

Its just so hard to be an angel for everyone

When the devil is inside

It's hard to be a light to follow

When you just want to hide

It's just so hard to be strong for others

When you are living a lie

It's just so hard being me

Believe me now, I've tried

 

But yet I grow stronger everyday

I've become better along the way

And although not everything is OK

Every night becomes a new day

I have learned to weather the storm

And to enjoy every new morn

To smile wide as new plans form

And its these thoughts that keep me warm

 

I'm not perfect, as you can see

But it's what I am striving to be

I will teach others the key

And it'll will be more, than just me

Only A Man.

A touch from one another can
only lead into emotions full of
clutter. Lost and confused,
dazed and amused. It's your
touch which leads you to become
my muse.

See I am only a man, capable
of so much. It is when I receive
that one touch, that is when I become
a man capable of so much.

But duly note, that you are only a
women capable of so much. It is only
when you provide this one touch
you now to have become a women
capable to do so much.

Stand Strong

Sometimes
Life is just too hard
You fight your battles
And all you get are scars
You let someone in
And they break your heart
No one understands you
Just for who you are

There are times when we feel we’re not enough
That’s when you need to turn to God above

And stand strong
Don’t let life pass you on
Because it’s always the darkest ‘fore the dawn
So stand strong
Don’t let them lead you on
Because you’re beautiful just the way you are
So stand strong

I know it hurts
When they attack you with their words
But you’re stronger than you know
And you don’t know how much THEY hurt
It might be
That they’re scared of life too
And what they might need
Is the hero inside you

And stand strong
Don’t let life pass you on
Because it’s always the darkest ‘fore the dawn
So stand strong
Don’t let them lead you on
Because you’re beautiful just the way you are
So stand strong

You don’t know how much you’re worth
So get out of the dirt
And live the life you’ve been given
I know
That sometimes it’s too hard
So shine just like the stars
Cause the One who died for you
Is there to help you up

And stand strong
Don’t let life pass you on
Because it’s always the darkest ‘fore the dawn
So stand strong
Don’t let them lead you on
Because you’re beautiful just the way you are
So stand strong

Stand strong
Don’t let life pass you on
Because it’s always the darkest ‘fore the dawn
So stand strong
Don’t let them lead you on
Because you’re beautiful just the way you are
So stand strong

The Strong Will Triumph

Folder: 
The Fallen snow

the strong will triumph

Only 17
Father isn’t around much
mother with a problem
Funny how I made it through
The fiery deep depths of depression
And the cold storms of anxiety
I`d like to say I didn`t get lost
Along the way
with the drugs
And the stealing
I never claimed to be a angle
But walking in shit up to my waist most of my life
Got me to were I am today
Now today I open My wings and fly away
To a life of success
To a long happy life
I will get caught in a few storms
I will fall and get broken
But I have the strength
To get back up
in the end I will triumph
Into the end of time

Astray

Its all about sex
Its all about drugs
Its all about money
and all about the thugs
Its all about popularity
Its all about the clique
Its all about fitting in
Its all about shit
Its all about style
Its all about fame

To me its all fucking lame
These stupid trends
and trying to fit in
Trying to look like her
Trying to be like him
Putting others down will make you win

Its all about looks
not what's within
These shallow people
Have no sense of humor
All they have are "twins"

Well, I don't want to be like her
I don't want to act like him
Just being myself,
You all act like its a sin

I may not be a saint
I may not be in style
All I know is
we are only here for a while
So I'm gonna live life the way I want
And they cant get in my way
I am gonna go astray

I may get shoved around
but that wont stop me
I will pick myself off of the ground
and keep on walking

Its my life and I'll live the way I want
I'll never give up
because I know that's what you want
So screw you
I don't like you anymore
Your face is such an eye sore

Its my life and I'll live the way I want
I'll never give up
because I know that's what you want

Not Landing

Do you really think that I'm scared to die?
Go ahead and shoot me through the eye
Do you really think I'm afraid to live?
Giving into everything that I can give

Death is nothing more than an open door
Life is a journey and nothing more

Cracked but not broken;
Shattered by words unspoken;
Glued and tied back together;
By myself, friends, and whoever

Do you really think that you can hurt me
Yes you can and that's a guarantee

But do you really think your bruises will last forever
No, NO, they NEVER!!!

Do you really think that I am weak?
All the shit I've been through, dare I speak?

Bitch, I'm still standing
In the air and I'm not landing

Cut

A thousand axes are cutting me down.
Cut away, cut me down as low as it can go.
You'll all find though that like an old tree,
I'm strongest at the roots.

So no matter how hard you try,
my feet are on the ground and I'm happy.
There is nothing that can be done to uproot me.
God is the only thing that will ever dictate my life.

I cannot be changed and I will resist it.
These changes will be done when I'm ready.
So please take the axes to yourself
And leave me to grow.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

I'm in a relationship that isn't the best for me right now. I'm giving him the chance to grow up or I'm gone.
