My time to speak
I rebuke, false claims that your soul is evil
I mean, after all, we’re only people
You’ve lived through storms, when I was dry
We’re not quite equal, you and I 

Even if we were born, exactly the same 
Our different paths, would...Read More

Is the Mirror Unkind, for an Anorexic
Is the Mirror Unkind?, for an Anorexic
by Michael R. Burch

for anyone struggling with self-image and self-worth

She has a comely form
and a smile that brightens her dorm...
but she’s grossly unthin
when seen from within;
soon an entire campus will mourn.

Yet she’d never once...Read More

God Can

God can help the one with blinded eyes to see;
God can help the one who’s bound by sin be free.
God can help the one who feels alone and sad;
God can fill his life and help him to be glad.

Head Held High
Laying down on the hospital bed...
Helplessly feeling so much dread...
I hopelessly dream away the sorrow,
Wishing there was another tomorrow

I'm sorry that I've let you down, Father
I apologize for the things that I've done
I'm sorry for breaking apart like no other

Premium Member The Demons
The demons that made entry in my head
Were destined to create unwelcome pain
Though courtesy, respect would be well bred
From hospitality I shall abstain

Temptation’s there to sink  beneath the waves
Submit to sorrow, sympathize my woes
And follow others sadly to our...Read More

Premium Member Where is the Age of Aquarius
What happened to the Age of Aquarius?
Did it quietly pass us by?
Some astronomers say it came in 2012.
Some say it is nowhere nigh.

Where is the love, peace and harmony?
Can we sympathize and understand?
This song often made people hopeful.
Now violence, war...Read More

The Path of the Train

The tracks rattle
The floor rattles 
I rattle
The train I’m on goes on

If the train had no stations
Where would it stop?
If I had no limitations
Where would I?

If the train had no tracks
Where would it go?
If I didn’t...Read More

The Real Existence of God
Mankind is filled with many beliefs
they would be sincere there's no doubt
but sincerity alone won't be enough
so life's so complex what's it all about?

One feels for that pagan so honest
but makes up a god all of their own
can such a...Read More

Must Realize What we Emphasize
Must Realize What we Emphasize

What I will always have to begin to realize
Is that what I give value to and emphasize
Think about,
And not shout;
With others be considerate and sympathize.

you are
my guitar strings
my piano keys
my heart's drum beats

each day
different tunes
expressing you

not songs
though we harmonize
in words
not voice

dreaming of her
hair in a purple haze...Read More

Premium Member Never Say Die
Never say die or you might just believe it.
Those words you ingest go straight to your chest
and if your heart is sick, you might just heave it.
Never say die. There's a mighty reason why-- 
we were meant to live forever!

between two hearts
At crossroads I am met
disguised behind a mask.
A gambler would bet
I shall not beat the task.
For I am torn in two
beaten to a point.
Not knowing what to do
my bones are aching joints.
Between the girl I love
and the man that I...Read More

May you fall, so you may rise
May your horizons surpass your skies

May you wear your beauty, undisguised
May you stumble, so you may sympathize

In the meadow, of the fields of life burning ripe with ire, I lay. Falling into a nagging sleep away from all the begging flowers. Aloof into the night, with blindfolds to help me rest peacefully. I Am above the...Read More

Fattened and fattened,he became gigantic
His nails so sharp,like the rodents
The belly you may think,a full pregnancy
And the coughing,my father’s son difficult

Before marrying selfish woman
Who walks shaking clumsily
Like she got another job,yet my brother

Before dad disappeared to nowhere,and...Read More

Apologize and With Sympathize

For my mistakes want to apologize,
What I did and will you sympathize,
And my fault;
Final result;
Things that I committed now realize.

In a relationship that barely gets by

Stuck together unwilling to try
Anything new that makes us comply

In our ability to foresee what his future could be
When he has no problem looking us in the eyes
To tell his despicable lies

I strongly advise staying away from these...Read More

Foolhardy blight that languishes in a musosal drop

And the host begins to realize
Its ancient punishment from the gods

Premium Member Seven-Colored Arch
Up above
black clouds cry heavily
I sympathize the sky
that a good day can't come by
in due time
the darkness scattered
and the heavens
bless the town with a
seven-colored arch
I go outside
and stand before it
embracing its amazing grandeur
I see a city on the other side...Read More

An Anthem To The Brave
I hear the captain’s shouted battle cries
on the bellow and stalked battlefield
But nether faith or death I'll yield
While for the dead I sympathize.

Swathed in honor my life’s dreadful dire
Death’s fix’d calm, amid the enemy’s...Read More

The First Abolitionist
How shocked the first man must have felt
Who saw the souls behind the eyes of slaves,
As they silently marched down crowded streets,
Making their way to market to be sold.

He must have thought he was crazy then,
