IN PITS OF PAIN


Inside scrapings of darkness how restless and doomed, the bellow crashing in like an agonized moon; the tunnel hears blood whooshing in pits full of rain, hurling damn imaginings of her fetus’ pain, wails rip through the stained window and grinds near right lung, heart reeks for a babe frozen knowing breath is gone; if I could pluck her memories from uterine wall, to touch sun’s glint christening new eyes on dawn’s call. ----------- *Sadly,research estimates that approximately 1 in 4 pregnancies end in miscarriage; and most women experience a grief period during such occurrences.

you are you

Where do I go ?
What should I do?
Cannot mistake 
My feelings about you.
Running behind,
Making mistakes,
What do I give?
What do I take?
You seem to know 
What I should do 
But, you're not me
You are you...

Empty feelings,
of being alone.
I cannot wait
until you're not home.
You yell, you scream
You make mistakes.
But now it's different,
it's O.K.
You seem to know 
What I should do
But, you're not me 
You are you...

Undying surface
Emmenseful pain
You have no knowledge
that's what I'll gain.
Crucial arrogance,
times go bad.
I'll always remember,
I have no Dad.
You seem to know 
What I should do
But, you're not me 
You are you...

Soul of a Shoe

I once adorned you with style and grace
My God this truly is an atrocious place

My soul is worn and molded to you
This place is so surreal, yet it is true 

Nothing but pain and fear now fills a face
That once polished me with style and grace

I now sit here upon this massive pile
How in the world can that Nazi smile?

As I sit here on this pile lonely and blue
I fear to think what has become of you

As I sit here upon this pile of deceit
I wish I could comfort your feet

Regardless of what these Nazi’s do
I’m so proud to have been your shoe

Just What I Am

I am a free spirit in a cage
Locked away I can’t fly
I need the open space
I’ve been beaten and broken
Scars run deep bleeding
My spirit clipped
My heart unmended
Save me set me free
Let me fly let me soar
Unlock this cage of mine
Throw open the door wide
Take these chains from me
Let me fly let me soar
Forever free.

Life of an Atom

Day in and day out, white coated lab rats try chopping me into smaller and smaller pieces as if I was no more significant than a carrot or an onion.  Enough, already. 
 
But there’s more.  Those irrational humans throw piles of money at
Elongated underground tunnels for the sole purpose
Of smashing me into nano-somethings.
I could think of better ways to spend a Sunday.

When those “geniuses” get bored with trying to split me, 
They attach little circular imposters together with pins.
Why they revel in their intelligence by playing
With clown noses is beyond me.

To be born an atom is exhausting,
But I’ll outlast every one of
Those meddling humans.
You’ll see!

If Her Walls Could Talk


Tortured heart falls in pieces to the floor of a broken home. Fear hides; the hollow chest caves like walls in wake of terror. Doors slam; screams lunge, strangled in silence. Swallow the pill of deceit 'til numbness follows. Black and blue fades to purple behind dark glasses. Paisley wallpaper cloaks shame, marks of frailty, an attempt at occlusion. Her natal star gleams; she knows not her arc of strength. If walls could expose seclusion... If only she escaped, lifted the veil; if only her walls could help and not jail. If only the fear would die at first dawn; if only the walls were friends to lean on. written September 10, 2012 for If These Walls Could Talk contest *dizain rhyme scheme ending in two couplets.

FILTHY AIR

SO MUCH IN THE WORLD SUCH AS ANGER, HURT, CONFUSION AND MISTRUST.

SO MANY HATERS IT COULD OVERFLOW THE EARTH SHATTERING THE INNOCENT.

A COLD REALITY THAT REALLY BITES THE DUST.

SHAKING THE FRAGILE AND KILLING THE STRONG.

WHERE THE RIGHT ARE ACCUSED OF BEING WRONG.

PEACE IS BEING TESTED AND TRIALS ARE SET.

WHERE FIRE IS BLAZING AND A THUNDERSTORM IS BEING MET.

ROCKY ROADS ARE SLIDING AND BEING FLIPPED.

WHERE THE HARD-WORKING AND HONEST ARE BEING SKIPPED.

FILTHY AIR HAS NO CHOICE OF PERSON.

THEY SEEK THE WEAK AND TRY TO TEAR DOWN THE HUMBLE AND MEEK.

NO ONE CAN EVER EXPECT WHAT IS TO COME.

BUT A WAVE THAT CANNOT BE DEFINED.

FIGHTING IS THE ONLY WAY OUT.

TO SHOW THE FILTHY AIR WHAT LIFE IS TRULY ABOUT.

Advice From A Solid Foundation

Hush little one I see and hear your tears
If only I could comfort you and squelch your fears.
I feel your fists pounding against my walls
I'll be with you no matter what trouble befalls 
Your foster mother will one day have to face her fate
Don't let her teach you the meaning of the word hate
You are a wonderful child and have done nothing wrong
You must not let her break your spirit, please stay strong
Ignore her vulgar words, let them wash over you
Don't take it to heart, it's definitely not true
The bruises she inflicts will one day cease
I feel your anguish, use me as your release.
Make your dents on me to ease some distress
Frustration and anger you should never suppress
I want you as strong and solid as my own foundation
Please don't succumb to her inflicted demoralization
One day you'll be grown and will have a heart of gold
But for now my walls will watch, listen and always enfold.

Remonstrations of a Mask

Remonstations of a Mask

My face fits over yours
As if it was made for you...
This is, after all,
What I was made to do...
I am a mask- or maybe
I am a shield, it seems
Like sometimes
I am expected to be 
Both things at once;
Either way, I suppose
You feel better hidden
Behind me...
Thus, I've become
Someone else's face,
Or my face becomes 
Someone else's body-
Either way, you are
Taking my identity
And claiming it as your own;
I am the default scapegoat-
But no one pays attention
To the remonstrations of a mask
Claiming identity theft;
Of course, having an identity
Seems to require a soul,
And my eyes are empty holes;
They are only your windows,
So I guess I have no way
Of proving I had a Creator, too-
You are now standing before
The world, and tell them
You are... whoever you 
Want to be...
I have become whoever you
Want me to be-
I never had the choice 
To be anyone! And now-
They are all studying my face...
They are asking who I am-
But my Creator, while he
Gave me lips, never bestowed
The power of Voice-
So suddenly I am
Whoever you tell them I am...
Won't you tell them that I
Am not you? Couldn't I... 
Be someone too?
Of course not...
I was only created so you
Could be anyone.

THROUGH IT ALL

Frightened; scared; worrisome, that's how I am..
Not that I am so ****ed up or too bad..
Rather I am caring so much...
Or maybe I have experienced too much..

I built up walls to protect myself...
I restricted myself to rules and regulations..
I defined and structured ways to be in control..
I followed a pattern to avoid dominion...

Maybe because of how I have grew up..
Maybe because of how the persons treated me..
Maybe because of how situations challenge me..
Maybe because of actual experience..

True, I am almost exactly like that..
Few have taken the time and effort to discover me..
That..

Behind those smiles are hidden pains to burst..
Behind those silence are quiet tears waiting to break..
Behind those hugs are yearnings of affection.
Behind those compositions are me: myself...

Yet, I have always been hopeful...
Always holding on...
Not that of pretentions.
Nor to give good impression..

Rather, It is because of that burning faith..
It is because of that selfless love...

Didn't I laugh hard until I'm teary eyed..
Didn't I sing so much until my voice hoarse..
Didn't I eat so much that I burp..
Didn't I given so much that I'm remembered...
Didn't I still love so much that I don't expect any returns..

I lie to protect people I love..
I break rules to get closer to what I want..
I work hard to attain my dreams...
I try to be the happy me to me others happy..

I am living my life the way I know right..
I made mistakes and even failed..
but, I rejoice to acknowledge these didn't stop me..
These didn't lead me to quit..

I rise up..
I stood up..
I am still here..
God, helped me through it all..

I Despise It

I can’t digest it, but I must,
forced to the stepped on and spat on,
my ideals and my thoughts
I see no great dawn,
only the darkness of rage
- accept it I must,
captive in my cage
NO! – accept it I’ll not!
I’ll not live in a cage,
nor will I fear the darkness of rage
nor be stepped on
or spat on or worse,
my pride a gift or maybe a curse
I despise, it I hate it
It hates me back,
these thoughts and ideals,
which ones do I trust?
I despise it I do,
but digest it I must

The Dragon's Gallows

…As a dragon I have soared,
…Regions ranging shore to shore,

…Great stories, great adventures,
…Great tales and greater pleasures,

…But as I recount my years,
…The dark specter of time leers,

…Reminding of days gone by,
…Spent without reason or rhyme,

…Now chained in murky shadows,
…Underneath deadly gallows,

…Upon which I killed all hope,
…Of better days down the road,

…A pitiful existence,
…Powerful and persistent,

…But then hope from this hell grows,
…Once the dragon met the rose…

Shadow Born

There is a shadow that fallows me The shadows have taken all that come near me for I live in the dark where once I dwelled in the light the darkness that lived inside me has now become me there is a lust for blood, a fury that nothing can sate this darkness that was once a shadow is now the fangs of midnights unholy creature a changeling that takes the form of everything and nothing both corporeal and at the same time a incorporeal mist tearing into me, ripping my flesh from my body as it eats my liver and devours my heart there is nothing I can do but still I fight with hands that have turned to claws and teeth that tear bite more beast than human I fight the living dead and the dead that are living I feel only rage blood lust and fire dwell in my eyes I was born in the light and there I once dwelled Now I live in the dark For I have been reborn Born in darkness I am the Shadow Born

What's Your Name?

Its simply remarkable, the excitement I feel
When I am blessed with your dominating presence
I am easily drawn to you and immediately lost within you
Traveling glorious heights exploring the depths of many heavens
The sight of you promotes intense anticipation and extreme anxiety
Umm…I am easily overwhelmed by a hunger, too strong to resist
A tremendous desire for a need, to omnipotent and persistent to just dismiss
Without you, my rational thoughts and actions become elusive and impulsive
Emotionally, I am incoherent and unstable, besieged by a love so fragile but 
explosive
Physically, I am deaden to the actual world around me
But reanimated mentally and spiritually to the fictional world that impounds me
Extreme chills and vigorous shaking spells, cleanses my flimsy body of any 
impure manifestations
During the absence of your efficacious aroma filling my lungs with love
I long for your intense inoculations

Baby, I must be tripping…please inject me with your venom
It’s what I want…it’s what I need and what I truly desire
I don’t care what they say or how they characterize me
All I know are the feelings we share together, you control my thoughts
And I …I…I passionately ignite your fire
I hear the rumors they call me weak and say I’m addicted to your love
I say, I’m addicted to your autonomy, honesty, loyalty and spiritual essence
We’re on another level, just you and me…I trust you with my life and you give me 
a different version of life One of trust, freedom and understanding, without 
apprehension
Those other people fear change…they make such a big deal of change
When it’s really all the same…there are no differences whether white or black
My only disposition or concern is “why don’t I know your real name?”
For months now, we have been intimate lovers, yet I only know you as “CRACK!”

Who am i, i am a monster

pestilence restlessness sedatives

medative hesitation effects my relevance
like hell needs a prince

i should repent

because once you get under my skin
you'll never tempt me again
Friendly enemy or foe
i don't not care at all no
Then into the monster i transform im a fellin 
my exoskeleton is made from titanium dripped gelatin
Perfectly flexible cybernetic veins here my bellowing

i spit sparatic people lavish my tongue lashing hello n
goodbye nice to see you have a good time kill a fellow n
realize im a villain include chronic in my song im telling
you dog like wrestling im raw but bloody like saw your welting
from my manic pelting i keep it strapped above my belt im melting

My personification became like a puppeteer
i dangle on the strings of my sanity
and dance in the pale moon lite 
its in my nature to believe i am something i am not
a look in the mirror is a trip into a place that has never
been seen before in the depths of my consciousness

Tears of a Black Youth

I'm crying out with these emotions that i'm can't explain
I'm crying out with two emotions in my heart,my sadness,and my pain

My tears flow out like a river fall into an endless ocean
My mind feels like its at war with my emotions.

Can you see my tears as they flow out
Can you see the pain in my eyes

Can you understand the pain I'm suffering from
Can you hear me asking why

I'm crying because of the world's ever escalating malice
I'm crying because of the news always showing victims of murderers and rapists

I'm crying because seeing so many deaths.
I'm crying because of seeing innocents breathing their last breaths

I'm crying because of people dying on the street corners
I'm crying along with the other mourners

These tears are for those who've died in wars,barrios,and ghettos
Even though we it was their time to go

I'm crying because the the pain will never go away
The tears will never disappear

All i can do now is pray
And that people can see this black youth's tears

Margie? What you did to me

I was deeply in love with your sister
From those four years I was ready to give
The better part of my life to live
To be a husband, to be a father, to be a spouse, to be a lover

You tapped into my dark side of desire
And pulled me into your web through lust
You were jealous of the affection
And you wanted all the attention

You took everything I could have had
Everything that could?ve healed my soul
You lured me in to take that step you gained my trust
And when I followed I fell into a giant hole

Cause? of you I lost my way
I lost my bride your sister was to be my loving wife
An because of envy you seduced me into bed
Your gave me head and took my seed cause you wanted to breed

For years I suffered for what I?d lost
I tried to get away from you
But you?d always find grope and kiss me
You tortured me with guilt that has created the man I am today

Bent on vengeful, hateful rage sour with decay
I tried to forgive you I tried to forgive me
But the truth is I am broken for what you did to me
Then you lied about the whole scenario and blamed it all on me

Thievery

4 walls, 3 windows, 1 door, and 2 locks: what for?
When evil remains unleashed 
And penetrates even the most solid of barriers.

Is there no salvation?

Is there no reprieve from the ugliness of
An angry soul lashing out against invisible foes
Manifested on the innocent?

Windows decorated with bars.
And peering through their coldness mournful eyes stare
~ veiled with the caution of soiled hope ~
Searching for sanctuary:

Knowing we've come too far.....

watching a dream

this world
my world
this dream 
my dream

in his dream i see another me
the me that i want to be
the me that wish to be
but may not ever come to be

I watch myself living my life
making the same wrongs and rights
But from i regret at what i saw
The end of the dream in lefted me in shock and awe

I saw my end was much too quick
Death at an young age,the cause: a bullet

Then i awake from a world 
that was more than it seems
But then i still hear the film rolling
Am i still watching this dream

Forsaken

This bumpy ride, it frightens me!
          The sun beats down upon my hide
              They've tied me up, we're on our way!
                      They said they're tossing me away!
As wind whips by, we're gaining speed
      My cries unheard, no voice to plead
           I'm swaying like a drunken fool
This old truck jars, with every turn
A fear in me as tires burn
     I'm pushed aside,
     They called me names
                         "Worn out, has seen much better days"
                          Outlived, they say, my days are done
         
Now disgraced
To be replaced
                  Forgotten that beneath my skin
                         Of peeling paint, of beaten face
                              A life in me, a charm within

This heartless deed, how can this be?...
       Please, won't you see the priceless me?
                   Beneath the grime, is treasured wood
                             A little care, restore my good!
I've seen so much in all my years
     Your child in laughter, yourself in tears
            And while you rocked, I soothed your fears
Tis not my fault that I've grown old
         While offering you a place to hold
            You bounced your child upon a knee
                Please hold a spot of care for me!

Don't dump me in among the muck
  Among the heap of worthless rot
       Have pity, please!!...forsake me not!
                 I'm worthy of a place, a part
                     A spot of mercy from your heart!
Please turn around, back to my home
I'll offer rest, for weary bones
When days are hard, and winter comes
I'll hold you up, when you're alone.

Washed Hands

Lollipop kisses (sticky sweet)
Impress their nectar upon your whiskered cheek:
Your hand absently wiped away their adolescent aftertaste.

Despondent arms:
Outstretched for a reassuring (pretentious) hug
Grasp only the stale air of your indifference
Breathed upon my naively upturned face:
Smothered in incognizance.

Does it mystify?
That I have excommunicated myself from
Your well rehearsed pleasantries?
Your hypocritical attempts to condone justification of 
Your displaced loyalty simply compounds the situation.

Your bed is not mine to lie in -
Your rules no longer mine to follow.

Perhaps now you will be the one to recite fairy-tales
On feather-filled pillows, as silent tears cascade down
Self erected barricades, puddling by your cheek...

Pray you never hear the lone hoot owl
As he waits impatiently by your grave...

I am the all mighty one who makes love falter
I am the beast who shines no light but engulfs you in the night

A Heart Deferred

What happens to a broken heart?

Does it shrivel and shrink like toes under water?
Or blister and break apart—
Like sunburns getting ever hotter?
Does it feel crushed like a battered rock by the sea?
Or bleed like a wound—
That soon ceases to be?

Maybe it painfully crumbles
Like a man hit by a sharp spear...

Or does it simply disappear?

my dark thoughts

is it a waking dream?
no,
is it a waking nightmare?
no,
it be the thoughts of the deserted,
those who have nothing left to lose,
the ones who can go mute without a second thought,
the ones whose dreams overflow with the blood of others,
for they are the ones who see the sinister truth,
the end isn't near its always been there,
every year,
every month,
every day,
every minute,
every second,
for you see the end is not when the world ends,
it is the last day you feel complete,
it is the day you feel worthless,
the day you see only the dark side of things,
the moment you imagine slaying the beast of which caused your pain,
for that is the day the innocence known as your "inner child" is finally slaughtered,
and when your become...,
heartless.

rotting in an unfathomable ghetto,
thrust ‘neath lifeless golden bricks,
drenched in crimson hues

gyrates to an ugly music,
painting  his evenings in sordid colors!
What have they done to you,
Oh my Modesty!!

A desperate light flickers high above.
Unattainable.
Blind.

Does your fumbling feeble mind remember me?
I was once known as Honesty.

Forgiveness

I am forgiveness. Bring to me your burdens, And I will render them weightless on my shoulders. Tell me of your troubles. Of your lies...of your envy, And I will walk you to the truth evermore. Listen while I talk. As I will hear your tales of hate, And take that hate from you, embracing you in love. See as I do. Not through the shattered window of you past. For I, am forgiveness. And you have found me at last.

Keys to the Cage

Anger sits there
locked in his cage,
howling against the bars.
Eyes rolling,
mouth foaming.
When he begins to pace
see the change in eyes,
steel over
and his teeth set in.
Lupine smile
fangs bared
she hands him the keys.
He races out
full rampage
blood rushes
sounds dies
worlds tip
taste blood.

She sits there
locked in his cage
Crying against the bars
eyes closed
mouth praying.

Life & Death

Torn ~
Wanting to feed the life
Yet choking on its breath.
Numb ~
Emotion recognized yet denounced:
Feigning nonchalance.

Tears of denial fall
Yet are absently dismissed.
And still they burn in their
Path of descent
~ Scarring the soul.

And what consequence will be suffered?
~ Before forgiveness is granted (if at all…)

And will repercussions be faced?
(As penance for my sin...)

Or will the torment of the act
Sufficiently suffice:
Continuously reminded by the
Guilt that cannot rest,

Tucked loudly in the corners of my mind...

WAR 2

My Son came home.
For a well earned rest.
6 months he had served.
He was the best.
In his shining brand new jet.

He looked the same.
Childish face loving grin.
What did you do.
My fine young man?

I killed more than anyone.
I made the earth boil.
Hospitals, churches, all succumb.
To the dropping of my bomb.

But my son.
We raised you to be loving and mild.
Not to be a ravaging evil kind.
How can you do these terrible things?

It's OK Dad.
They are not real people you know.
Only fodder.
For me to blow.
I am doing my duty.
To God and King.
My orders are kill everything.

You are no longer my son.
I renounce you.
For what you have done
God will not forgive you, nor I.
You are covered in blood and sin.
You rejoice in it  within.

are we the same

maybe you see nothing but love,
maybe your world is cheery,
but that is not mine...
for me life has never been "fun",
I've always had to put you before me,
it never mattered if I was happy,
all you cared for was your happiness,
I was a tool,
a toy to be used at will,
how I hated you through all my days,
listening to your problems,
keeping mine bottled,
one day you finally found me half dead,
my arms bloody, 
what did you do......
nothing,
 my life was fading yet you did nothing,
do I even belong here anymore?
no....for my purpose is not of this realm...
but the next...
for then I shall be freed from the bully's,
the haters, And those who would ridicule you,
and scrutinize you for all you do,
for that is all the attention that's given,
to the sad little child
who's last wish.... is to die

Why do I feel so alone?
I should put up more of a fight
I have a right to a happy life
I wish you could see inside my mind
What a sad sight

Look, there's a little girl
Waiting to be found
Too afraid to cry aloud
even as she's screaming inside
Terrified of the beast
Who considered her innocence his feast

Then there's a young lady 
whose name is "Sadie"
She doesn't want you baby
A declaration of love she can not take
Can't let anyone get too close
You might see the tears she tries so hard to hide
You may realize her toughness is just an act

You will never know me inside 
I prefer to be alone
I don't feel comfortable in my own skin
Will I ever know what happiness is?

BROKEN PORTRAIT

How to breathe...in the in between.
Is to see that which is unseen,
perfection, betrayed, through
timeless tales.
This is me and how i fell to my
own tale.
My cell is myself.
my key a broken portrait,
given unto immortality's last
fable.

Winter Portrait

Being halved in a disc 
of ember and snow,
tinges bicker merits on opus.
Exulting own shadows 
after breaking from spectrum;
from erstwhile adjacencies, 
contrasts commence.

Sable consumes radiance of white
making the latter peep at night.
Grey has veiled beneath its blanket
tangerine's burst of smiles and giggles.
In false humility, azure weeps:
portraying dolor in dark hued navy.
Bold and proud, crimson was;
but is now eclipsed behind jaundice cast.

Behind the shadows, colours dwell
secretly longing for dominant reign.
Monopoly: alas, they yearn-
ignoring the threat of audience, bored.

My Silent Solitude

On the inside and looking out, I sit below.
Maybe I am here to wait?
Deep within the depths of me I must go.
My world is all mine being one that only I know.
So many things in here that I can debate!
I see a world of madness so I steadily take it all in.
New things come to me, time and time again.
My silent solitude renews what time creates.
On the outside, I can look deep within.
Maybe I am here to know?
Deep within the depths of me is where it begins.
My world is all mine being one that only I must transcend.
So many things in here that I can show!
I see a world of confusion, but I can always navigate.
New things come to me, the more and more to vindicate.
My silent solitude always tells me so.
Deep within I can come and go.
Maybe I am here to show?
My world is all mine being the one that only I accumulate. 
So many things in here that I can comprehend!
I can see the beginning and I can see the end.
New things come to me, one by one to appreciate.
My silent solitude is the womb in which I alone can grow.

My Mind

I'm trapped
Locked inside my mind
Screaming to deaf ears
Crying to blind eyes 
Nowhere to run
Nowhere to hide
Day always night
Darkness invading innocent hearts 
Always seeing bad things happen
People's sanity coming undone
Moon dead
Sun vanished, stars hidden
Evil being unleashed
Good cowering behind fear
Seeing everything my mind invents 
People dying, hearts broken
Nowhere to hide 
Nowhere to run
Crying to blind eyes
Screaming to deaf ears
Locked inside my mind
I'm trapped

DEVIL me ANGEL you

A pitchfork that I hold
The devil's son or so i'm told
Heaven will not have me
Fire and Brimstone

This...
a neverending Hell of reality

Come as you are
An angel in flight
immortal superstar
Playing with his Minions delight
Soft and cuddly
Smiling in flight
Feather of the air
Those wings have not been earned
But the "man" does not truly care

The goodness that is you
but think,
those colors will show them true
False believers cannot hide from his eye
This is the word
quoted directly from the sky

I have been portrayed as soft of the weak
Heaven only wants the strong
instead of the timid meek
My lines across the face
have marked me to Hell
banished without so much as a trace
Left behind to plead my case

I AM HIS TOO!JUST AS DESERVING TO STAND
AND TAKE MY PLACE BESIDE HIS(OR HER)ARM

Devil's minion
wants to keep me imprisoned
A fate to be scorched
As you,"his Children" sit and 
make MERRY with the Heavenly Torch

Life may not be fair
as decedence
is decreed
more important up there

At least through these eyes
The innocent no longer applies
OUT OF TIME
Lucifer commands
MICHAEL,YOUR SOUL IS NOW MINE!!

This poem is done
Evil taking its place
Satan laughs delight
It has gained another face

Blank Slate 5-7-03

So she made a few mistakes
She didn’t even mean to make them
Now she might as well not try
To put on her happy face
Because no one cares if she starts to cry.


She’s apologized and begged forgiveness 
But no one listens ‘cause they don’t believe in second chances
It’s like she’s not even there
She’s just a whisper in this new world
And it’s not fair.


What would she give to start all over?
What would she give for a place where no one knows her name?
A place where she has no reputation
A place where she’s made no mistakes
What would she for a blank slate?


It’s like everybody else is perfect
Like they got something pure to compare to her to
Everybody’s done something at least one thing wrong
They’ve got some starches on their cup of life.


So why do they make her like she doesn’t belong?


Mistakes are always part of the past
And even though, that is why it shapes our future.
You can learn from both of them
Well, this girl has been taught by all her bad choices
And she’s never gonna make them again.


What would she give to start all over?
What would she give for a place where no one knows her name?
A place where she has no reputation 
A place where she’s made no mistakes
What would she give for a blank slate?
