wake up
sit up
look in the mirror
put on clothes
not that
not this
can’t fit
look in the mirror
brush hair
fix makeup
look in the mirror
not good enough
not bad enough
not cool enough
not thin enough
look in the  mirror




Words on the paper

crawling out of my head

wanting a life of their own

cannot ground them down

need a pencil

need a pen


what happened


formed wings

and flew away

before could grasp

what they mean

life is choices
burdens we take
we have our voices
to make our emotions fake

the weight we haul
and miles we walk
and seem to crawl
when we don’t talk

how can you feel
the burden that is mine
that cannot be healed
even though we have nothing but time





strands weave together
in and out
many colors
and shapes
life changes
as the strands weave through
the fabric of the world
one connects to the other
multitude of life
everything is connected
no mater how isolated we feel
each depending on the other
to hold
the pattern of life


What a day


what a day

how could it be this way

even though I tried to sway

its amazing any way

in a messy way

even though we try to obey

our mentality will not lay

in a passive way

to give someone another day

to take away

what we pay

for so dearly everyday




So here we are

study till you drop

just words on a page

reality just the same

study till you get that “A”

read until your eyes blur

till you can’t see straight

nothing changes

study get that achievement

till you get that appreciation

recognition that comes

simply going mad

study till you can do more

after everyone disappears

life passed you by

you’ve done it all

study till it’s gone

and nothing is left

laughter, happiness

things we show

when everything goes right

tears, sadness

things we hide

when everyone else thinks things are right

show me all

I want to know

when everything is wrong

when everything is right

why hide

when I am right here

give me your good

give me your bad

I can take it

I know what it is

Don’t feel lost

I’ll hold your hand

love insanity


what is it when I see you

wondering how I ever could

how I never even though

but even as I see

you cannot see

I watch from a distance

and people say I am nuts

but I wonder just if

just maybe

if the courage I can build

wondering if you even know

you don’t even see

how I feel

now I wonder if

I should be committed

just for thinking

just for seeing

just for following

but I turn around

before I can give myself away
