Our world
Rose Apr 13
I believe,
                             that our world
                             has been corrupted by greed,
           that to live our lives we look on while others bleed.
                                     I used to believe,
           that our world wasn't broken,
                               that kindness came free.
            When i got older I realized
                        people have motives you can’t see.

     I don’t believe,
                                       that we need
                             to pull others to their knees
                                so that we may be free.

         When did a life lose its value?
                     When did crys start going unheard?
    When did we stop caring,
                  about all the people that we have hurt?

                We know the harm that we do,
                   but it only seems to matter,
            when it comes me or you.

                  All that is said will never get through,
              because everything is accepted at face value.
         We prey on the meek to provide a feast,
  then say it’s their fault,because they are weak.

   People shouldn’t have to be afraid,
  of the ridicule they'll endure,
                           trying to save and be brave,                                                           ­                                           
             or they'll provide when they stop getting paid.
   I used to believe,
             when I was young and naive,
       we were all given the same chance.
             How can I believe that now,
         when the world around me shares the same chants?
         Chants on superiority,
                  over those whose lives have been shattered.
                                      In a place like this,
                      how can I believe,that all lives matter?

    I wish I could believe
                          That I could do something to stop
                                    all this chaos around me.
            That in all this madness,
                             there is something else to blame.

                   At times like this we are forced to look at ourselves,
                        at all the times you thought,
                                       "This is insane!"
    Or said,
                              "they should be ashamed!”
                       What was it that had made you change?
                           Are they really the ones to blame?

         I believe we allowed ourselves to become part of the crowd.  
         Just another sheep in the herd without so much as a sound.
                         Why did we allow ourselves,
                              to be pushed around?
                                I wish I could believe
              that we will change years from now,
               that all our mistakes are in the past.
                                How can that happen?
         If we raise each generation same as the last.
Not to be mistaken I think we all deserve equal chances and opportunities but unless we try to listen to what others have to go through and how they have to live and acknowledge that,I don't think we can begin to fix the damage in this nation.Not one person is to blame and not one person can fix this alone if we would just work together we could change things.I don't mean to offend anyone and if you disagree that is okay I'm not an expert  and I don't claim to be this is strictly my opinion.

only a memory
Rose Sep 2019
They say, all good things must end
forever in your breath
your memory is my only companion
the pain afflicts

I am only your memories.

Pauper's grave
Rose Jul 2019
Alone in the world,
Nobody knew me.
Nobody cared.
There was no one to hear my final prayers.
I wait here for God to take me,
The only friend I have known.
Cause I lived my life,
and there's nowhere left to go.
Left abandoned,
No i.d.,
No wealth,
No one by my side,
I had nothing.
I'm carried away to the fire,
An unknown flame,
Just another person without a name,
Buried in a pauper's grave.
They put my ashes in a jar,
They buried me with other broken hearts,
Left the world cold and unknown,
I've made heaven my  home and I'm no longer alone.

But life goes on
Have pity
I'm so tired
You cannot stay
Corpses around
Let them sleep
They're dead...
Wake up? Never!
Arguing with death but death had already chosen

I was alone
Until I met you
You made me feel whole
You cared for me like no one else did
I gave you my everything
I never thought it would be you to break my heart
I trusted you,
believed every sweet lie you told me
Devastated,hurt,and haunted by our memories together
You used me and it's hard to admit
To tell others what you did
I never reported what happened
And I live with this shame
Did you care at least a little?
What is wrong with me?
I let you
I was scared
I didn't speak
And I vow as long as I am
I won't let anyone close enough
To hurt me again

lost love
Rose Apr 2019
It was supposed to be true love
you and I, always
our bodies were bound,
for always in a minute

But our pulse was just a fever dream
you slipped out of my reach
you never believed

Maybe one day you"ll see
you and me were meant to be

special love
Rose Apr 2019
My love for him is so great,
my heart melts for him 'til the dusk of day.
The nights are lonely when he's away,
tears, run 'til day's dawn.

his beauty is great,
Wondering mind 'til he sees
loving is all I do,
While waiting for the moment, for him to say "I do."

Rose Mar 2019
You think im happy
but what a lonely night
One minute you're here and the next you're tormenting
You don't wanna be "happy" like me
Romancing and hoping and dreaming
Wanting more but not feeling worthy
Everyone is lonesome sometimes
You must think it's true
But I am scared and alone

Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
My handling is gentle,
And so are you.

Orchids are white,
Ghost ones are rare,
Transition is smooth,
And so is your hair.

Magnolia grows,
With buds like eggs,
The way is long,
And so are your legs.

Sunflowers reach,
Up to the skies,
The center is brown,
And so are your eyes.

Fences in the grass,
Surround the farms,
The environment is safe,
And so are your arms.

Daisies are pretty,
Daffies have style,
Treatment is kind,
And so is your smile.

Flower is beautiful,
Just like you.

Broken love
Rose Mar 2019
When the world seems cold,
And the air seems bitter
When the sky is dark,
And the hurt feels like a cut

reopening an open wound in your heart
Tearing it to a million pieces
Follow my heart?
Which part?

Why try to find love or happiness
When through it all
i know it will never last
Preparing for another crack for where love should grow
But with every heartbreak
Shredding what little is left

Broken trust,cold,and strange
Who would like me?
I found someone I truly love
Am I just being naive?
Mar 2019 · 930
Rose Mar 2019
I hate my body
I could never say
I'm happy with what I see,

I need to lose weight to be pretty
I don't believe
Being who I truly am
I'm actually happy

why should i?
Take an inch here and there
Snip away till I'm perfect
Am i beautiful now?

Lonely rule
Rose Mar 2019
The rule of king is lonely
Assassination makes the deaths impartial
Leaving the road to glory ******
but the riches are monumental!

Witches say I'm invincible
Was all this premeditated?
Invincibility?the thought is laughable!
Maybe this was fated…

The secret had been discovered
The murders avenged
With the guilt leaving you feel smothered
Oh how I've been challenged

At least the kingdom is ruled by one better than I
Tis a shame that I had to die

Enjoy your time
Rose Mar 2019
Life seems endless,death seems tragic
Lost in crushing defeat.
Doomed to repeat this cycle over again
Deaths cold dark grip on you.

To think you’ve wasted all these years
For how far you've come
The decision is yours,
You may have lost all this time

But you can erase it
Find your dream and pursue
And all the bad memories,replace it
Because life has better meaning
When theres joy in your heart

please stay
Rose Apr 2018
I can't leave you behind like you left me,
I held you in my heart as I have traveled from home to home
Day in and day out immersed,
in hurt.
A hurt you caused,because I never came first.
I loved you.
I needed you,
but you left me alone
I called your name as loud as i could          
I didn't get an answer                                                           ­                
and at that moment I realized I never would.                          
my heart was broken,but my arms were open reaching for a love
I would never receive

— The End —
