Every time I hear the obnoxious,
mainstream slang "you fake"
I can't help but think
about how true it is
sure, sure, it's slang,
it's thrown around and not meant
to be taken seriously
But i look around
and see that all of my peers
are everything but what they describe themselves as
we are what we insult others of
They laugh, and joke, and help each other with work
but as soon as one leaves the table or the room,
they all turn on that one person.
My peers always have something that they won't say to your face.
People always ask me
if i'm okay, what's wrong, etc, etc, etc.
but don't they ever notice the behavior
of our peers? of themselves?
I notice my flaws all the time
I analyze my behavior all day
but the truth is
that I'm perfectly fine,
i'm just ranting, all day, in my head
analyzing the actions of others and those of myself
I cant bear to even talk anymore
because I know my peers now
i've analyzed their voice,
and i know that if i were to speak
i'd get shot down so much worse
than if i just sit here
and pretend i don't exist
Empathy goes a long way
with wusses, don't you think?
The tough ones don't have feelings
just razor-wire for guts and time-bombs for hearts
emotions replaced with Hulk smashes and knife gashes
"Let's be friends" she said
"We can chase air and lick butterflies"
He said "Only if you die first"
he only had dead friends
they smell amazingly disgusting and have WORMS for EYES!
He almost felt sad, he thought
but he realized it was just hunger
for scared screams and others' insecurities
impurites of rhythm and logic just soft chalk cells
washed away by urine from an angry bladder
getting madder and madder
maybe, if feelings were so prevalent.
On the other-side.
my grip. Quickly
Grasping back on
with eased smile.
So thick the fear
So cornered the
Soul, no love from
Mine eyes can break
Curse this crushing
To Hades depths!
Yet no! She went
With her worry
To the very pools
of Lethe drinking
Me and our love.
Forget what you learned in the night
The youth do not have it right
The wine plays tricks on young mortals
In the late moonlight
When reason was lost
And caveman instincts run wild
And I think I want to rest awhile
But the youth will not rest
And the youth will scream you awake
And the youth will give you drugs
And the youth will fill you with worth
And the youth will leave you be
Only when the youth has burned you up
My body is on fire
And the youth dance in my light
The youth came last night
Like all nights, and they begged to dance in my light
I begged to dance in their light
My dear youthful nation, what is happening to us? We are tearing ourselves apart little by little and without knowing it self-destructing our own futures. Careless actions and delusions of an immortality that simply does not exist lead us to mistakes with consequences that can be prevented. Let those from our past be present in our lives by remembering the lessons that they teach us. That no matter how young we feel, no matter how invincible, even the mighty can fall. Our generation is a generation of spontaneity and moments. Yes, live for the moment. But also live for the future. Live for your dreams, plans and ambitions. Live for your friends and family and take not for granted all that you have in this world for there are those that have less than you. Seize every opportunity that you are given and do not waste the talents that have been bestowed on you. For you are lucky to be here. To be here one more day, one more hour, one more minute. Cherish it.

We all pay for life with death
So why worry about what's it between
Smile and drink this shit down
You ain't gonna live forever
So what you waiting for
Take the red pill first
Followed by two of these little blues
Snort this line and we'll ride the night
High enough to forget chasing dreams
What are you waiting for
You are throwing your life away
But I'd try to help you
Only if you
Promised- to meet me half way
You thought that
It would make you look so "cool"
But instead you got busted
And now you look like a fool!
Yeah I know that
You are a "victim" of peer pressure
But you have a brain
And you should have known better
I hope you get the chance
To turn your life around
Because I know that your future
Could be so bright
But first you must know the difference
Between what is wrong and what is right
And promise to change the way you have lived your life,
This very night
