CRUCIBLE


					Blessed are those who are persecuted 
					because of righteousness, 
					for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 


					Rest in peace, Amanda Todd

Tormented again, a fresh cycle begins,
over and over the vicious celebrate
as her heart is impaled on a thousand pins.

Alone, always alone, an angel, fallen
rebranded by peers in a circle of hate,
tormented again, a fresh cycle begins.

The harassed, every outcast, will never win,
and the cruel prevail, their words desecrate 
as her heart is impaled on a thousand pins.

Once more, she attempts to grow thicker skin,
Once more, their taunts assail, how despair grates,
tormented again, a fresh cycle begins.

This loop is endless and mangles a small chin,
loathing is tenacious, apathy just waits
as her heart is impaled on a thousand pins.

She will leave a love note for her next of kin,
It won’t stop, it won’t stop, tears berate,
tormented again, a fresh cycle begins
as her heart is impaled on a thousand pins.







*Dedicated to Amanda Todd, a victimized teen who posted her story on youtube a month before she committed suicide. She was only 16. Let us teach our children compassion. Let us ensure that we always walk in other’s shoes. To break your heart, please watch… but warning, it will change you  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=80RqEf56Ix4

Why didn't I die

Why didn't I die, why didn't I die 
When all the dreams and hope do fail
Dear Savior take away my life

Yet still to this day do I grind
In search for that dear wanted grail
Why didn't I die, why didn't I die 

So I have thought for months and months
Leaving behind a an endless trail
Dear Savior take away my life

My hope for program has gone wrong
And beat me like an evil tail
Why didn't I die, why didn't I die

I feel so hurt I cannot try
My wracked soul has left me frail
Dear Savior take away my life

And from my failures do I hide
While burning blushing in my shame
Why didn't I die, why didn't I die
Dear Savior take away my life
