I've been called;
" stoic " maybe
" aloof " no not really
diverse…for damn sure
misunderstood and hidden
subtle quietness with captured desire
a yearning to grow 
a lovely girl
expressively proud 
incredibly bold 
"your not fragile like an egg
your dangerous like a grenade"
"a pain in the ass, like broken glass"
"don't over think things Amanda
we all go through sh*t"
"stop worrying all the time"
put on some perfume
and cover over it
a pink volcano 
ready to erupt
a little lioness
ready to jump
a profound Goddess
a white Witch of  Words
even Frodo Baggins 
the Hobbit with the world in a ring on his neck
repressed and angry 
hiding it so well
venting through the words
eager as hell
the sapphire sea of my eyes
the mystery 

Know this about me
I won't go down 
without a fight
and the battles I'm in 
I usually win
I mask myself with anger
defense mechanism 
and what I fight for 
is more than just skin
its the deeper things
hidden within
what life is about
what will you fight for? 
who can really get down to our cores?
who to let in 
when the rain sets in
who to trust when we feel about to bust
cause through all the wars 
humans need much more 
than to sit idle inside
brain-washed and ashamed
break free from the game

With my grenade 
and my pink champagne 
or the volcano erupting from rage
I could conquer and defeat
take down those who stand up 
for all the wrong reasons 
hit them in the gut
with a few rhymed words
cause this is all I have 
have to prefect 
my curse 
rewrite my history 
and take back what was stolen
give the ones around me  
fighting next to me
a chance to see the beautiful side
a chance to be happy
I would die for any of them 
so the reason I fight
I won't give in

So tell me again
what's wrong with my head
a girl in a cage
of my own welding
fabricated dreams
metal corroding
rust setting in 
cancer exploding
where is the grenade 
to blow up what I'm holding
