HumanThe world is a horrid place
So they seem to think
To make us fear each other
Hate the very things
The very things that make life
We should see them as bad
So they say
So they say
So they say
Only for gain
The world is wonderful place
Full of kinds of fantastic people
Be deaf to the endless lies
The unending hatred
Spewing from your tv
Good people are good people
Nothing else matters
Some people are gay
Some people are straight
Some people are both
Some people are good
Some people are bad
Most people are both
People are people
And people don't deserve to be hated
To be discriminated
To be abused
It is time to embrace love
To embrace people for what they are
We are human, after all
So what else matters?
But I can't
Given in to myself
Let loose the fire
Burns like hell
Drink it anyways
Don't know why I try
Can't be something
I forgot what
Something that was there
Before when I was younger
Lost dreams and fantasies
Maybe to much
Got stuck there once
Maybe still am
I'm not really sure
What I am getting at
All I know is
Beyond the beyondI sail into the unknown skies
Beyond the embrace of the heavens
Beyond the mortal realm of men
Into the great beyond the beyond
The furthest reaches of the unknown
Took so long to find myself there
If I'd only known I would have left
Yet here, I've always been
In the darkest places
In the brightest fire
Remembering days gone by
Days of joy
Days of sadness
Days of health
Days of pain
All these, and more
This is what made me who I am
This is what I am
Set sail into the mind, beyond the beyond
Into the skies, forever away
Thought I was lost
But was always there.
There is no need for fear
There is no need for hate
Life is just an illusion
We only experience it
For a short amount of time
Life is like a whisper on the wind
Soft and gentle
Yet almost soundless
In the endless emptiness
Why take it so seriously?
There is no need to be unhappy
There is only the need to live
So be who you are
Do what you want
And love every minute of it
Give it all to life
Give it all to love
And forget all worries
Smile through your tears
Grin in the face of fear
And don't forget
That none of this really matters
One day everyone you know
Your family, your friends,
Your teachers, your neighbors
The people who hurt you
The people who love you
Someday they will all die
Someday we will all die
There is no stopping it
No on lives forever
So live for every second
Relish every moment
And live your life
The way you want to.
Path of the GodsDon't leave the world behind
As you walk the path of the mighty
Don't leave your soul behind
As you walk the path of the weak
Has its consequence
Good or bad
Every path reveals new paths
New passages that lead to new worlds
It is up to you
To decide which path to take
Which turn to follow
It is up to you
To make your way in this world
To make your own decisions
To write your own fate
No one can tell you how to live your life
And no one can tell you how not to
But you do not have to do this
There are people out there
On this great and majestic planet
People who are there to hold your hand
When it needs holding
People who are there with a shoulder to cry on
When you feel like crying
People who can sing your praises
When you need to be praised
People who can offer you advice
When you are lost
Don't leave the world behind
As you walk the path of the mighty
Don't leave your soul behind
As you walk the path of the weak
And whatever you do
Don't leave us behind
More often then not I am finding myself
I'm tried of trying to define exactly what I am and what is wrong with me
I'm tired of trying to find out if my life has purpose or not
I'm tired of trying to understand what love should or should not be
I'm tired of being tired.
If I could shut my eyes forever
And then open them as someone else
Even then I would become tired
Life is struggle
A battle against nothing in particular
But an exhausting battle nonetheless
I've been fighting
Trying to break out
Trying to find my voice
Trying to find my place in the world
And the only thing that I found out
Is that I'm tired, angry, and drunk
And you know what?
I'm alright with it.
At least it is something in the endless nothingness.
GrassI gaze over the fence
Beyond my world
The yard over there looks so fresh
So bright and welcoming
And the grass is so green
So I jump the fence and laugh
As I leave this world behind
I land and frown
The grass is very rough
And although very bright and green
My grass is so much softer
The air over the fence is stale
And there is no wind
There are no animals in the yard
Just boring grass and a few small trees
I look back over the fence
My yard is so beautiful
So over flowing with plants
The colors seemed faded while I was there
But now they look so clean
I try to jump back
But I am tried
And do not have the energy to make it
I cry out
The world I left was my world
And now I am stuck here
That is the hell of it all
When you are there you want to be here
And when you are here you want to be there
We are never happy with the life we have
And until we leave behind
We never understand what he truly had
So I look over the fence and smile
Maybe my grass in my yard
Maybe it isn't so bad
In the Face of DeathDeath
The one absolute of every life
The last page of the book
The cover closes
And the story ends
In the face of death
Do our true colors show?
Those who loved their life
And those around them
Do not fear those last moments
And embrace life to its fullest
Those who hate themselves
And have so much hatred to the world around them
They cower in the end
Desperately trying to hold onto
The nothing around them
It's only in the end
On your last page of your story
That you can know
The person you have become
Death is the final answer to life
Even stars die
Nothing lasts forever
But that is no reason
To not cherish the life you have
And love the people and the world
Even in the face of death.
Collab Poem with TyBigonetAs I live each day
Considering the consequences of what I do
I wonder, what will actually come of all this?
I may die tomorrow, but how will I live on?
What memories people have of me may alter the path of history?
What is my legacy, and where will I find it?
I'm not sure, and so I still live my life wondering
Those who dream of immortality
Can only find it in legacy
Those who remember us carry us on
Far after we are gone
One turn deserves another
One word leads into the next
And this life I live like a silent observer
Opens up many options
Many failures, and many successes
The cycle of life, such deep thoughts in such a shallow life
I feel as if I am strung tight between two realities
The reality of daily life, my bills and my job
And the reality of deep contemplation where all things become one
Sitting in the middle of a turmoil
The eye of the storm, drama wailing around me
Contemplating the deepness of this lake, or the beauty of this flower
Am I that deep, am I that beauty?
AbyssA hand rose up,
Gliding along a crack.
Her eyes travelling up,
To find them staring back.
An empty brown.
Swirling in its own,
And her hand left the mirror,
The distance from the reflection,
And her neck,
And she clasped,
Feeling the warmth travel through.
But the coloured liquid,
Didn't change at all.
She woke with a start.
Couldn't see anything but the moonlight flittering,
Through the cracks of a broken window.
I see that number in your eye.
The spirals it's creating.
The chaos it's spreading.
The remnants of a dream still clinging to her conscious mind.
I can see your outline.
The shadows it's casting.
The darkness you're forming.
Wildly for a moment,
Losing her vision,
And in a flurry of movement,
Lost her balance.
Let me find a way around,
Nothing with me, my hands bound.
So she sat, on a soft carpet that felt,
As if it was absorbing her very being.
Hands dangling off raised knees,
Back against a cold bed,
i said nothingIn the dark and in the water I weighed nothing at all. Floating there in the oceanthe frigid,
salty water splashed over my tired, vacant face. Looking up, I saw blackblack with faint
specs of light. The stars seemed so far from here, similar to my troubled life. My mind is blank,
free from worry. I don't have to deal with anything out here.
I felt my cheeks sink in after I drew a deep breath; hollow.
My addiction had finally caught up to me, it was time to let go.
A flashlight shone on me and I jumped; the figure came closer.
"Are you alright?" the voice asked.
...There was too much to say, so I said nothing.
the soundtrack in my dreamshorizons make me broken, i sit on curbs and stare at them wondering where you are beyond that, i justify that it's somewhere better than in my arms and with someone so much closer than thousands of sound waves away.
i mean nothing to you, i am only a small memory that careens around the miles that rip us apart, something you want to break through.
you are pushing me away, writing me off for just another face in a room, just another heart you locked shut and lost the key to.
truth is, i cannot let myself think about you. every corner ahead of my feet i had planned to find you somewhere along the brink of it. sometimes i think things will be fine, if i just keep my eyes closed for a little longer
everything will shift, i will see you again when the light explodes in between my eyelashes. my present will not hang like a spiderweb, waiting for me, everything will be alive again.
truth is, i wish i could wind the earth counter-clockwise like a toy in order to reincarnate every sunken memo
I'm Gone In A Momentso you stole my last breath
before I killed me
and you cut me down by my wrists
before I could bleed out
but that doesn't mean I didn't get away
with murdering everything you ever knew
about me and my world
I'm killing me if you're here to save me or not
life is hell and hell is all I ever got
you need me and I need peace
you can take away the razor
but the pain is a razor in my head
it's a open bleeding sore
that you cant stop from rushing out
the blood is turning to dust
with the touch of love
it just flows quicker now that you're gone
and my soul got even more lost
dying is an adrenaline rush
a final push before the plunge
Sun ShadowsI cover my eyes
In hopes that
You wont over come my disguise
I have shadows in my sun
That are burning me alive
Stripping away the masked layers
Pealing me back inside
Dying in front of you
A smile is plastered
Across my flaming face
The sun inside can only burn for so long
Until it becomes the moon without love
Heart PoundingHeart Pounding
Palms sweating, sweating, sweating
Heart Racing, racing, racing
I walk up the steps
Slowly, slowly, slowly
The lights turn on and they are so very bright
My mouth is dry and my face is red
This moment I have dread
All eyes on me, me, me
The time is now and I can't remember
My feet are shaking, my heart is beating
And I feel like fleeing
But I'm trapped, trapped, trapped
I open my mouth and not a sound comes out
My head is dizzy and my vision is blurred
The audience's faces start to whirl
And my vision fades to
Black, black, black
You Don't Break EvenI punish my self too hard for the mistakes that are meant to be made,
and I regret on both the anger of being wronged and being wrong,
I linger over the things that I said and did even when its past being done,
and I wonder that maybe I should give you another chance but I know I have none to give,
I think back about how hurt I was but I'd smile for you to get past it,
and I feel foolish for ignoring all the things I was saying in only my head,
I get so frustrated when I remember how I felt, then how you did, then me again,
and I know I should think about whats good for me but I still think about you too,
I pray for things to change for the better and I hope you've moved on,
and I hope that what I did will help you instead of crippling you when I left,
I expected too much out of my first time and I bit off a lot to chew on,
and I got disappointed for my troubles but those were my foolish expectations,
I fought till I forgot nearly everything I said to you in the fight to make it better
inner space tangothere was one brief moment of
oxygen disappearing into
then the moment was gone and
all the sunshine smothered
beneath your covers; bedsheets
soaked through with
into a noose just my
and there you sit with
selective hearing never
my particles will one
day drift away down the drainpipes
to somewhere on
the other side of your
radical free matter consumption;
what have you destroyed of mine
that still i cannot see?
and will there ever be a day when
you will cease to captivate me?
the chains around my hearstrings are
as thin as fairy wings but
your arms they hold me stronger and
you scream to me for more
and despite all the things
you have done to me you still
accuse my pupils of being black holes.
The Final Frontline, 1CHAPTER ONE.
Follow a straight path for thirty feet. Take a right at the end of the hallway, and then go through the fourth door on the left. Follow that path for another fifty feet until it branches into four other paths. Take the third path from the left and then the second right. This will take you to the Shin-Ra library and file room. All department information is here.
Cloud Strife had memorized this long series of directions down to the last letter. The next phase in AVALANCHE's sabotage of the Shin-Ra Electric Power Company depended solely on if they could get the information they needed here, and now.
Three years had passed since Cloud's fight with Sephiroth. He hadn't resurfaced since, but Cloud and his friends were always on the lookout for any sign of his return. In the meantime, their battle with Rufus continued.
In those three years, Rufus had managed to bring his company almost all the way back to the power it once was. New department heads had been hired, the SO
There was no dogkilled the thing that breathes lies
not sure where it left off, going to die
lets make plans and break them before they start
let's all pretend that we are real smart
go out the door into the night
go off to bed, leave on the light
not sure what meant the man at the door
calls me an again man-bear whore
living a life inside of my walls
do go outside, don't answer the calls
like in here said the man to the dog
but there was no dog.
For that matter, there was no man either.
lost my mind out in the waves of space
let me go off in your dance of grace
not sure what it was that I meant to say
Leave me now
...........before I turn gray.
