She could feel it in her bones.
Chills promising her she would
would never be alone.
I cried the night he left, he
just went away leaving me with
a scar of sweet memories. I held
him dear to me he was the only one
who I had led to my heart and opened
He didn't deserve it, oh no he didn't
But he was the one she loved and as the
tears dropped she turned to stone.

Poor boy hungry,
Revolution in stomach
Machinegun boy carry
Oh! Boy attack
Kill: rich, poor
Frustrated brain man
Mental rate more
Eat trash can
Sleep Bridge under
Terror people more.
What is further?
Bleak dreams more
City big city
Where hope gone?
Brain wasted done
Devil take duty
Mortal man killed
Played stage part
Dirge song filled
Rainbow sky cry’s

I looked up to you and turned out just like you
You let everyone take advantage of you, me too
You didn't ask for anything in return
It went on for years and you still never learned
How could you be so strong?
Trying to fit in where you didn't belong
I loved the way you looked me in the eyes
Telling me you loved me as you began to cry
How could you be proud of me?
I didn't even graduate, I got my GED
Now that I need you, you won't answer the phone
You won't even open the door to come home
My life has been so painful in the last year
I need you more now than ever mother dear
No hugs, no kisses, no late night talks
No more going in town, no more walks
How can you leave your own child behind?
Leaving me in this world to seek and find
You promised you'd always be there
You said this while brushing my hair
In the last year, I got married and it fell apart
He committed adultery, got caught, and broke my heart
I need some advice on what to do
I need you to help pull me through
Again you said you'd never leave, never say goodbye
You broke your promise, but at least I know why
I miss you MOMMY, I miss your touch
God tell her I love her, tell her how much

To face one's fear
That must follow
One more minute
Until the hour
In which the bully
Will make you cower
One more second
In this life
Is all it takes
To grab a knife
Now if only
You could turn back time
Make life into a movie
And hit rewind
If you could do this
And only then
Could you hit play
And start again
But this isn't a movie
This is real
And so my blade
You begin to feel
And now your blood
Runs out of your skin
(Inspired by the movie: Bowling for Columbine)
