At my church
We have a card
And getting it's
Not very hard

The racist card
You will not lack
If you say one thing
About white or black

And if at any
Culture you poke
You'll get carded for
Your racist joke

The card circles
Like a shark
waiting for
Some snide remark

So if you find
Not being racist is hard
Remember the tale
Of the racist card
I had to write a poem for school about racism. This is what happened. And yes, my youth group has a literal racist card.

The fact I can get it right away
The fact I can get it right away with the new version is better
The fact I can get it right away with the new version is better to be the first half of the year
The fact I can get it right away with the new version is better to be the first half of the year and I don't have a great way of the year
Just me spamming the middle button

I'm pathetic really
To want to end my life
When there are others around me
Dealing with so much strife

I have a family that loves me
There's nothing wrong in my house
Other people are facing Giants
I'm facing a mouse

But I'm on a chair and petrified
And almost ready to give in
But I refuse to end this life of mine
I refuse to let satan win
I wrote this when I was really struggling with suicidal thoughts and I read this book that was full of letters from these kids to this motivational speaker talking about their bad situations. After I finished the book I was really down in myself for feeling the way I did. Now I'm better, though I have my days of feeling worthless. I just want to say that no matter what your facing, be it a mouse, a giant, or something in between, your feelings matter. And God can help you through them.

When did we lose the good in good morning?
When did it become acceptible to wish each other "morning"

You know what morning sounds like?
Mourning

Mourning for a world that is broken and lost
Mourning for a child that will never know love
Mourning for lives that will never see light

Maybe that's why we wish each other "mourning"
So, I'm not completely sure where this came from but here it is.

I love him
I tell myself
I know that
We will be together forever
I don’t believe that
We could be separated
My thoughts tell me that
He’s the love of my life
Sometimes my heart lies and says
I could live an eternity
Without him
Like my friends say
“We’re perfect for each other”
And you can’t tell me
He’s not the one.

Now read from bottom to top.

We are such            clever creatures to divide
Most everything             into its different sides
With chaos versus             order, dark and light
The stark duality of         wrong and right
We even split the very        world in two
With human versus human,       we and you
But still no matter how much      we divide
Each thing has infinitely many      sides

I can't sleep again,
Will writing a Haiku help?
Nope, still wide awake.
