battles

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

What I'm Gonna Miss

Folder: 
Songs

You know darlin’ I have to go
But I’ll be back for you, you know
I had a call, and gave an answer
The wait is eating me like cancer
I hate to leave you, but I must go
So right now I’m gonna show
Just how much you mean to me
When I leave, It’s gonna be:

What I’m gonna miss
Is the love in your kiss
The sunshine in your hair
The feeling when you’re there
The moonlight in your eyes
The teasing little white lies
You know I hate to leave like this
But that’s what I’m gonna miss

It’s time to go, I’m leaving now
And I just don’t know how
I’m gonna live without you
Can’t stop thinking about you
But you know, when I return
This job, well, It can burn
I’ll hold you in my arms
Abandon all life’s charms

Cause what I’m gonna miss
Is the love in your kiss
The sunshine in your hair
The feeling when you’re there
The moonlight in your eyes
The teasing little white lies
You know I hate to leave like this
But that’s what I’m gonna miss

Baby here I am right now
And you just won’t believe how
Thinking about you has kept me alive
Sittin’ on the frontlines, about to dive
Enemies surrounding me on every line
And I’m just waiting, biding my time
Wishing I were home, just kissing you
But instead I’m fighting here missing you

What I really miss
Is the love in your kiss
The sunshine in your hair
The feeling when you’re there
The moonlight in your eyes
The teasing little white lies
You know I hate to be here like this
But that’s what I miss

My last day, can’t wait to find
The girl of my dreams, always on my mind
Fought a war, and saved her from it
Hardest part was to overcome it
Driving down the driveway
You come running my way
Finally hold you, kiss you now
Looking back I don’t know how

All the things that I missed
The love in your kiss
The sunshine in your hair
The feeling when you’re there
The moonlight in your eyes
The teasing little white lies
You know I love to see you like this
Now there’s nothing more that I'm gonna miss

One of my attempts at a country song.... comment, rate, and enjoy

Leaders of the past.

Do you hear the words of our leaders of yesturday?
Do you see the meaning of their actions?
Do you know the value of their pain?
Do you understand all they did?
For all of us today, they spoke up stood up,
They delt with the hate.
They felt the harsh lashing of words that discriminate.

They felt many wounds made by knives and bullets. But they never said they couldn't.
They always believed that they could, and none knew they would Make a difference in the future.
Do you hear, do you see, all they did for you and me?
They took away all the hate, and protected every state. They raised their voices and spoke the truth,ignoring the law and the rude. Ducking the punches and all the hard hits. Trying to protect all their kins. Many days of long labor, and very little rest. Trying to make a differancd and forgetting the threats.
Showing the enimeys, showing the world, that they would do well. And rebel against the wrong and would not go along. They would not follow, they would lead, the people would change the worlds evil greed.

They would fight for those rights that were lost and not found.
They would make such a loud sound. They would protect all day long, with all the signs and cops all around.
They put their lives on the line for all of us. To protect, to help, and make us all free.
For a future of respect and deserved equality. To make us all one, no matter what color, no matter what sex. That we would be treated fairly. They went all over to fight for our rights of speech and beliefs
They shot many people, stole many lives, to protect us from those crazy guys. To keep us safe.

They fought every day, but when will this all change?
When will the battles end? When we are all stiff and dead?
When will it end , when will we see, that all we need is to agree?
To stop the killings to leave and let everyone be.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

I wrote this poem 4 years ago, I'm not quite sure why. I know I was in history class, and this poem talks about wars, soldiers, battles, leaders, racism, rights. Freedom, and equality. It talks about how they all fought for our rights, beliefs, our land, and equality. That we should all be free and equal. And towards the end it says that after all they did for it, why do racisim, anger, hate, and ext... Still exist? Idk exactly why I wrote this, but after re reading it, that's what I got out of it. Hope it helps to explain this poem. :)
