The words
Be happy
They make me angry
For the words be happy
Do not fix me

The words
Just eat
They irritate me
For the words just eat
Wont make me hungry

She looked more alive
dangling from the edge
than she ever had resting
in the lap of luxury.
Were we ever meant to live the ordinary life?

when my son was younger
he asked -

how old are the mountains
from where did the First People come
why does the sun sleep in the ocean
what is the color of rain

now that my son is older
stronger, wiser and bolder
he asks -

how old are the mountains...
...what is the color of rain

some things don't change.

Hey, Son. :)
And when you
            love someone;

their name
to sound like
a song that
never leaves

-Andrew Durst.
I am rock and roll
All my life I've done what I've been told,
a guard dog, never daring to be so bold
as to go against what I've come to know
But now I am ready to break the mold.

I am the back against the wall
I was an angel, but I once took a fall
Now am I scorned, mad, appalled
You've a knife at my ribs, but you stall?
Don't back down; I have seen it all.

I am the bullet in the gun
I have felt the fire of a thousand suns
I've been the fool to suffer a million puns
I will never stop--I'm having too much fun
I am no stranger to reconciling what I've done.

I am the solemn scar
I've yet to see a shooting star
My Smoldering Sky singed my heart
A broken key keeps my doors barred,
but it keeps me from falling apart.

I am the reason as to why not
I am the black sheep among the lot
Lived too many stories without a plot
Seeds sewn, sins reaped; karma caught
Always asking, *was it all for naught?
When did it visit me?
I really don't know when.
It came out of nowhere,
I feel that it's a sin.

Naked in the shower,
washing up clean.
I felt this little lump,
scared and unforeseen.

Feeling all alone,
I looked up to the sky.
Fingers locked together,
I asked the Lord, "Why?"

Now, I lay in silence,
while the tumor grows inside.
Putting up these walls,
all I do is cry.

Months have gone by,
with the chemo and the draws.
The sickness took my *******,
now that's the final straw.

It's been six months now,
I struggled for my life.
I beat the **** cancer.
My mother is a breast cancer survivor. But I also wrote this for all the survivors and to the ones to whom that lost their battle with this disease!  PLEASE SHARE AND LET THIS TREND!!
