Mask of Despair

The rich own the world
The ones with power never 
twirled
The poor are left to fight for 
nothing
Never have stability, always 
adjusting 
The injustice is almost 
unbearable
The mask of despair is easily 
wearable 
Some laws work most do not
Family's broken,left distraught
Will enough voices ever be 
heard?
Or will the air remain unstirred? 
It only takes one to light a 
spark
To leave a forever lasting mark
How did we get here?
Always living in such fear
Justice will take its rightful 
place
But it won't be with ribbons and 
lace
Can you put it all on the line?
Or leave all hope behind?
Is fine good enough for those 
that follow
Don't just sit,hope,and wallow 
The mask of despair will not so 
easily die
You cannot simply hide it with a 
lie
while the rich sit on their 
thrown
The poor are burying their own
Drop the mask of despair
Throw it down,leave it their
Stand in the dust 
Life suddenly lost its list
The people will have their way
Loved ones have does and gone 
away 
The ones with courage will 
move on
Until the injustice is finally gone
Those who have lost will now 
have won
The mask of despair is finally 
done

Counting Stars

We are born to die
Left to count the stars until they fade
Or we are born to live,
to set the sky ablaze.

They say we live to learn lessons
To take our knowedge to the next world.
We live to get our hearts broken
And knees scraped

In the end,
What does the pain give us?
The strength to hurt another day,
The realization that pain is temporary.

So I sit here
counting the stars 
Burning up the sky
Until I too, fade away

Nightmare

Don't run
Don't hide
He's watching you
That creek
That thump
Watch behind your back
That snap
That scream
Cover up your ears
That face
That shadow
Run for your life
That glimpse
That feeling
Jump under your covers
That silence
That chill
Don't move
That footstep
That evil cackle
Cry out while you can
That eerie feeling
That pure darkness
He's right behind you
That moment when the covers 
lifted
That moment when you scream
And you realize it was all just a 
dream

Home

I will not succumb to the life 
provided
My feelings are true;no need to 
hide it
I'm screaming to be heard 
But you hear not a word
I'm selfish and unkind
Because I have a different state 
of mind
Im screaming,listen to me
I'm begging you to set my 
words free
I'll run to a far away place
Leave without a single trace
I cannot do this anymore
Hurt more now than ever 
before
My heart now made of steel
I just can't make this real

Drowning

The current pulls me under
The pounding in my head is 
thunder
Bubbles escape my lips
Moving quickly,rocks smack my 
hips
Swimming,screaming,gasping 
for air
My life is ending and it's not fair
I just need one chance
Looking up for one last glance
The world goes dark
I hope I've made my mark
My body is now at rest
My simple soul was just a guest
Do not cry or weap
For I am in eternal sleep

Battle Field

I stand tall
Facing the sun
Waiting for battle 
That none of us shall return
We have been out brained
Out brawned
And much to our dismay
We must face our opponents 
With dignity and grace
I stand in front of my loyal army
And look across the lush green field
I see the men and women just as loyal to their own
All in amour and prepared to die
We must start a battle 
We are all destined to lose
Charge! I scream and lurch forward with my sword in hand
The other side mirrors
We collide
I raise my sword
And heads fall as my hands do
I take the lives of hundreds
And I just might win
I look around
My army failing
Falling to the ground as bloods drips onto the once green grass
One of my men falls beside me
Too late for me to save
He whispers to me
What were we fighting for?
I take a step back 
Wondering the same myself
And a sword stabs through my chest
I look down
And for a brief moment
The fight means nothing
The world has no noise
I cannot feel a thing
And as I fall to the ground 
Looking at my remaining army
And wondered
What was I fighting for?

Crow

I look deep into the forest
On a cloudy rainy day
I see a crow perched on a dead willow tree
Staring at me, as if waiting
I stare back
Watching its dagger eyes
Pierce into my soul
I start walking towards it
I’m mesmerized
The beak chipped on the left
I continue to walk forward
A feather floats down from its side
And kisses the ground
A shriek bursts from the crow’s mouth
I proceed forward even with warning not to
With each step I take forward
The ground behind me turns to ash
The flowers wither
The sky turns black
But I cannot help but walk forward
I hear buildings being engulfed in flames
But I cannot look away
I can’t go back now
I feel so close
The crow is unmoving
My world is still burning
I’m so close I can feel it in my bones
I feel myself getting weaker
My world falling apart
But I keep going
I must reach the crow
Pulling me towards it
I look away for a moment
And I see all the destruction
I could have prevented
But it does not matter
I must finish what I started
I reach the tree
And there is no crow
Just a dead willow tree
I rest against the rotting trunk
And wait for a crow
That never returns
But I will never leave
No matter how much the world burns
Because one day that crow will return
And I will be here waiting
No matter how much my world burns
Even if I burn with it.

Sweet Child

Don't cry my child
You must stay strong
Others will break
Others will fall
But in the end
It is you who must stand tall
You must not show weakness
sweet child
Others may show mercy
You may not
Strike with a swift hand
And never look back
You are the leader
You must take over
These people are pathetic
Show them the way
Stay strong my child
People are corrupt
People cause pain
You must show them the way
Lead them my child
Lead them to battle
Lead them to kill their own corruption
And when they are all gone
You may stand tall my child

Hollow

I walk on this hollow ground
And it never breaks
Jumping and screaming
Testing, waiting for death’s drop
I felt the heaviness of my bearings
With the world on my shoulders
Something was bound to give
After years of these years
The ground was not hollow at all
I am.

Simply gone

You can cut my flesh
And I will feel no pain
You can say you hate me
And I will never scream
You can break my body
I'll never utter a word
You can knock me down
And I will never fight
You can take what I love most
And I will never shed a tear
But I am not a coward
My spirit is simply gone
