Do Not Be Like Them








Do Not Be Like Them



Because they're losers

who prove their worth to the world

—like birds without wings

Born loser

Sometimes It Is ok to give up


A Born Loser is what my ma would call me

Not a figure of speech there, she really would

And as hard I as try or as little as I sometimes did

I always prove she was right, it’s what I am


Found out today that a million dollar result of my work

Will go unrewarded and just like me unnoticed anyone

The last time the folks stood by me and I lost again

Born Loser even when I’m in the right


I trusted friends, tried to benefit friends and as always

Every choice was one by a loser and even

in the middle of it all, a friend called me one

This must be a true statement


Thinking of statement I used to say this

The world is obviously going to hell, 

do my best just not to make it 

my fault.  Well, to hell with that.


Those that liter get ahead like those who are selfish

Anyone who is willing to take gets what they want

Justice is a thought for losers or those lying

about being a loser by stepping on a loser


Idiots have faith in what mankind has to offer

except for the things a man can take from the other

And love is a dead end street for the loser too

Women see on my face what my mom said


Lost again today even when I found where I would lose

Showed it to someone I was paying to help me now lose

Someone who’s happiness and sadness has been

greatly effected by me so I guess thats what I lose


When we don't dream we can die and I like to sleep

a lot more these days so I’ll be ok as long as I 

have my dog and remember every moment

I'm Sorry I'm A F**k Up :(

D. E. A. F.

Sometimes I feel like everyone

wants me to change who I am.

But I'm comfortable being me,

so I don't really think that I can.

Everyone always seems the same.

always doing what is right.

But I've never been one to go with the flow.

Is that what keeps me up at night?

I've never wanted to be famous,

or President like everybody.

I just wanted to sit alone with my books

and to be no one but me.

My parents were always sad,

saying I should at least want to try.

I've never been the prettiest or smartest,

and so emotional I'd always cry.

My brothers look at me and laugh,

Their big sister whose always been fat.

But I don't care what they say,

Or if they treat me like a floor mat.

I refuse to change who I am

because I won't ever be ashamed.

I feel like a clown Surrounded by millionaires,

I feel like a disease that remains unnamed.

I'm sorry I'm a f**k up,

but at least I'm happy.

If you don't like it too bad.

Because I'm proud just being me.

Don't wish that I'd try and be different

or that I'd step into the "light."

And when I make mistakes don't get mad,

Cause like Shane said, "Oops, my bad I never said I'd ever get it right."

This song has become the theme song to my life!

So I wrote this poem for it in a way!

Love Hate Relationship

Feels like I’m being tore in two. As that creature of habit wears into you.
Same shit, day in and day out. Nothing changes with pleasure or shout.
The days go by and you’re still the same. Drowning your thoughts with electronic chains.
“Relax, relax, relax, I just want to relax.” You’ve been ‘relaxing’ for days, you’re driving me insane.
The light from your screen blurs what you see. Nothing around you is clicking up stream.
You torture me with your sloth, and pride. I've never loved and hated someone so much.
I don’t want perfect. I don’t need perfect.
I need peace. Peace of mind you’ll help when I need. That you’ll be aware of the scene. That you know what’s at stake. That I know you are headed for your dreams, instead of you making me want to pull my hair out and scream.
But all you do is sit and wait. Make a move, show that you’re true.
Don’t wait for me to leave you behind, wishing I hadn’t given you a second of my time, for you to turn around and learn what you had to do, when this whole time I have been telling you.
Your games, your internet, it’s all a drug, and you don’t even know you’re addicted.
Saying others are scumbags because of their need, while blocking yours out by the lights of that goddamn screen.
