Not Even Me

I look through old pictures
Just to see a person 
I genuinely used to be
Before everyone changed me

I'm not even me anymore
I turned into someone else
Somebody as fake as can be

I tried to do what society told me to
And it's not making me happy
I tried to be someone else 
Not an "outcast"
But I'm not even me

Don't give in
Be who you want to be
Or you'll turn into someone you can't stand to see
Trust me
I'm not even me

True Target

I have a target,
Over my head and you
Want me to trust you
Little do I know
The target was always my heart

I AM a Human Being

Hi I'm a human being
Most of you see that by 2016
But some ignorant people don't see
I am a human being

I was born a boy
But I feel like a girl
When I told my parents how I felt
It really took them for a whirl

They said I was going against the almighty God
I was born with a penis
And that I had to suck it up and deal with it

Because these sinful feelings will go away
And I'll be married with a beautiful woman
And have beautiful kids one day
And we'll disown you if you continue to feel like this

And I had to gather every bit of courage and strength to say
NO! I don't want this
Then then man I called my father put his hand in the fist
He gave me a black eye
Just like that I was unloved
And I was homeless

Hi I'm a human being
And I live in a society where they say
You get what you get and you don't throw a fit
Just deal with it!
They say don't embrace who you are
Or you will NEVER get far
You're an abomination
A failed abortion
You belong in a shallow grave
You're not one of us
But why can't they see
I AM A HUMAN BEING!

Hi I am a human being
And I have a brain and a heart and a pair of lungs
I have five fingers on each hand
And five toes on each foot
I function just like you and everyone else
So why am I put in hiding for being myself?
Hi I am here and this is me
And I AM
A human being



Side note: Hey guys. Just so I am clear I am NOT a transgender. I am a supporter of the LBGQT community because I believe EVERYONE is entitled to the same rights. Have a good day hope you liked the poem! :)

Suicide Note

I'm the last words
You'll ever say
No matter if it's on a piece of paper
Or a video tape

I'm the last thing you'll ever see
While you're saying goodbye to your friends
And family
When it's too late
They'll find me less than a foot away
From your dead body

I'm the note
That'll witness more tears
Than anyone will ever experience in their life time
The sad thing is I only see that in five minutes
In one single night

I'm the last thing your mother will read
While she's staring at her flesh and blood's lifeless body
This is a cycle that seems to repeat
A person can only go so long with the pain and the guilt and the agony
Of missing someone they loved so deeply
In the end the last thing on their mind
Is if they'll go to Heaven or Hell
Because of suicide

I'm the suicide note
I'm the last one to see you alive 
Or is that really so?
The words you strung together
Showed every emotion you felt in your life
At the same time it seemed like you felt nothing

It didn't matter if you hung yourself from the cieling 
Or blew your brains on the wall
It's almost like
You didn't kill yourself at allct

First Time for Everything

There's a first time for everything
For the good and bad
That's probably why I got
Addicted to this razor blade in my hand

Not to it itself
But to the things it does
It makes me feel nothing
Bu something at the same time
And it fulfills my urges
To see blood

There's a first time for everything
That's probably why 
I'm  addicted to these pills I've overdosed on 3 times
They're killing me
But they seem to be the only thing that's keeping me alive

There's a first time for everything
So I made the choice of trusting you
And I'm glad I did
Because I found out
You're broken too
I wasn't alone
You showed me
Angels are broken too

There's a first time for everything
And maybe that's why
I gave up my addictions
For you and mini us
Because there are better things in life
Than the demons inside

Dance With Death

I went down this road so many times
I have danced with Death for way too long
It's a matter of time until I run out of chances
And he takes me on his own

Every time I try I regret it
Every time I fight hard enough just to make it back in the nick of time
Then I tell myself it'll never happen again
But he knows it's a lie deep within

I've done this so many times
He seems to check up on me once a year 
For the last five
He could have me by the touch of a finger
But the doctors or fear bring me back
Before he can touch me

It's the sixth year now
And I called him again
He says he's tired of my games
But I'm serious this time
I want this pain to end
So he goes to touch me one more time
There were no doctors
And there were no fights
He touched me with one finger and took my life

Rude Awakening

I've shut out so many people
I don't know how to fix what I've done
I guess this is my 
Rude awakening

I can't undo anything now
I can't believe I thought that irrationally
This has got to be my
Rude awakening

My final thoughts go through my mind
I can't believe I thought irrationally enough to commit
Suicide

I guess I was right you see
My death was my
Rude awakening

Let's Just Dance

Why does everything have to be so sad?
Why can't we focus on things filled with joy?
Not everything is bad,
Let's make a happiness that nobody can destroy.

Let's just dance to a happy tune.
Smile for once and enjoy life.
Let's dance under the light of the moon.
We'll be so happy we won't even strife.

Let's just dance like out lives will end tomorrow.
Sometimes we need to lift the world off our shoulders;
And get rid of all the sorrow,
Because we're too young to have all these boulders.

You'll finally see a real smile upon your face.
Once you realize the whole world isn't a disgrace.

Blissful Beach

Such peace in the wind
Soft sand in between my toes
Ocean makes me happy

Traveling Soldier

It's been three days since you've passed away
There's a secret box under my bed
With every letter you sent me

When you were last here
You gave me a bouquet of lilies
They're my favorite flowers
Dried up in a vase
Because it would kill me
To throw them away

I have every plane ticket you ever got
Next to your dog tags where your name's engraved
Right next to a picture with your smiling face

One day I'll see my traveling soldier again
Until then I have the memories and the pictures
And the pleasure of being yours
And I'm pleased with the time you spent in my life
