You are saying I am cruel I bet you even care Yes I am rude and also somewhat mean Because I am a thunderous sea trying to calm the hurricane of your betrayal going inside me You think I don't know that you're the one spreading the rumors Thank you for sharing with the world your opinion of me
I was not like this before You loved me, you stood up for me Making my already hard life somewhat nice It's you who forced my mind To shut the windows of my demons but then, they finally convinced you. these people, you call your friends. stole me from my happiness and rid you of your love for me. and from that day on I have thanked you, for making me a stronger person, for making me hate you, for making my life; a living ****.
There're so many people who open your eyes and show you the craters they see in the skies Perspectives are jaded when Truth's within reach and I have rejected most people who teach I forfeit the frenzies they feed themselves to I'd rather go hungry than eat out of you And even if crazy is all I've become My sanity's measured by little to none I drew my conclusions like everyone else in anger and envy that put my in **** The fire was pretty, the darkness the same but I want to hear what the light has to say I cannot be honest if I cannot see Surrender my soul to the Spirit in me
The swamp’s where the wild things wallow Where lies are common and promises are hollow With so many choices who do we follow? Do we vote for an ogre with a shower as a head Or do we vote for the donkey who’s inexperienced instead? This tower we live in Is going to be our eternal grave That knight we’re hoping to win Is just another of the dragons slaves… Tucked away in never never land Is our hidden saving grace We haven’t been banished or lost The fact is that there is no such place Here the gingerbread has knives Prince charming has hives And the cat doesn’t have nine lives Because the cat is dead Locked up in my basement For me to do my black magic with And drink my tonic To end this bubonic So that critters can frolic Free in my mind To plant my seed in time But still know That it will never grow Because there’s something many dont know And that’s I don’t have the ability To create any seed with fertility Therefore my beanstalk has no validity As that golden egg from the goose in the infinity Shows that the goose may be a trinity But to say there’s a golden egg Is just a fallacy…
South Africa and its Politics Tyler Froes - 30 May 2015
There was a man named Ty He was a Jack of all trades But like any other average Joe He had his own Achilles’ heel In his mind Elvis had left the building To say he was as happy as Larry Is a big no way, José It was elementary my dear Watson What you have seen is not the real McCoy Alas, poor Ty! You thought you knew him well, Horatio… But now Daniel has come to judgement And the only place Ty would be happy Is down in Davy Jones’ locker…
Late for everything, Awkward by choice, Zealous for nothing, Yet always tired LAZY
I really wish I wasn’t like this But I don’t really have a say of any kind Personally i think its because of depression It’s like a crippling crutch for my mind I try to work hard, I really do I know that it seems like i don’t But you don’t know what I’m going through Getting tired of being tired Waiting for some inspiration to come my way But if some never comes Then, “Oh well” is all I can say
Lethargy is something I have And it admittedly it’s getting pretty bad Zebra, zebra, zebra Yes, you just witnessed it first-hand LAZY…
Tyler Froes - 31 May 2015 *Read the first letters of each line for the first and last stanzas*
My name is Gabrielle Rose Pimentel But everyone calls me Gwen My mom wanted to name me Gaby But my dad insisted that my nickname should come from their names So I got the G from grace and the WEN from Wendell and formed Gwen
I have 4 moles on my face and a ton more on my body One eye is smaller than the other I have dimples on my fingers I like to connect my moles My hands have caught so much pain, they are blistered My shoulders swelling from the weight of the world My feet red from running around in circles trying to figure out what I did wrong And yes, I have a double chin
I can get pretty random From the pyramids of giza to why does soap bubble? I’ve loved and it is the most amazing thing I have ever experienced It takes you on this rocket ship into the void And it makes you feel like all the shooting stars are falling for you But with love comes hurt I’ve been hurt and I’ve learned That the more i try to stop the bleeding, the more it goes So I let it bleed, and I allow myself to feel the pain I feel things very deeply and every feeling is either a bandage to a wound or a punch in the stomach I don’t know if it’s a blessing or a curse I’ve been careless, I am learning I walk on the glass shards of life barefoot, hoping that the wounds teach me a lesson As if the blood on my feet carry the answers to my biggest questions
I am just 15 years old My eyes wide as the universe, ever expanding, ready to see all there is to see My brain, eager like a little child at the ice cream store, wanting to taste every flavor there is I am at the peak of my own age of exploration Waiting for my marco polo moment, when suddenly everything will be clear Do questions have legs? Because a ton of them run through my mind Do aliens exist? Is God real? Are there really mermaids? Can dogs feel? Do plants talk? How big is the universe? Is everything real or merely a dream? Why is there poverty? Is there a cure for cancer? Why do bad things happen to good people? Is there any hope left in this world? Will my questions ever be answered?
If life was a new movie everyday, I would be at the front row I wanted to see everything that was about to happen I would stare at it all day in fear that if I looked away I would’ve missed my prince charming I will obsess over every detail, trying to figure out what it means And this is probably why its good that life doesn’t have a movie It’s the uncertainity of it all that makes life so special It gives you the choice whether you want to embrace it Or let it hold you captive and paranoid of whats about to happen In my case, I learned that I should just let life go and take its natural course of action Never mess with the universe because the universe is beyond our imagination We think we’re so important Like the world revolves around us but really we aren’t even as small as a speck compared to everything
I'm Gwen and I'm just 15 But this is me, this is who I am And I'm so done changing myself just for others
The past is gone and washed away Those scars and tears were yesterday's I'm new I'm clean I'll be who I can The future is right here in the palm of my hand The past is a story, that I'm done telling The hope and joy that will come, Keeps swelling I'm moving on stronger each day Now all I have to do is find my way Goodbye demons, doubts, and pain I'm going to go out and enjoy the rain That rain will wash you away And then I'll start with a brand new day
You see me, At first glance, I may look like a strong young women. Like I have confidence, Like I don't care about what other people say. But if you look closer you'd see the miniscule fractures that make up my heart, The broken peices of my soul left in the hands of those I love, The tears that come down my eyes, when I think no one is looking. *I am broken.. Always have been. Always will.
Just something.. a challenge. Hope you like it, it's more raw emotion than anything really
