from wanted to worthless
she didn't ask for this
they wanted a princess
she wanted the crown

they said they loved me
they said i was wanted
please if you please
she was Pretty in pink

now she's broken and beaten
and tossed to the side
America's golden girl,
wasted with pride


sometimes you win
and sometimes you lose
so defines life
you don't get to choose


she painted her face
with colors of the sky
got called a disgrace
whenever she walked by


Flowers can change
as flowers grow
people can do it too
I didn't mean to leave you

they said they loved me
they said i was wanted
please if you please
can i be Pretty without pink?

the world is trying to beat you,
to throw you aside,
but you've made it so far
hold your head up with pride
happy pride month losers!
yes. i am still active. sometimes. not often.
this is from a song im writing! i took out a few of the choruses bc the ratio of chorus:verse needs to be fixed and i think it makes more sense as a poem this way? idk lmk what you think <3

A wasted effort can be seen to be like a trial run
and the objective would be to learn and have fun.

THERE IT IS
THERES THE MONSTER

APPEAR

All I do
is sit here
all day

and

All I see
is how much
I fray

Time

isn't a

friend

It counts

down

to the

end
I'm wasting my life away

You opened me up, but before you even saw what was inside, you left me with a gushing wound.Blood on my hands, and my hand on my chest. Im running in circles, but you’re hiding in the corner.

I wasted your time.
I knew this was a bad idea.
Thinking anything would be different.  

I’m still trash and honestly,
Im so sorry for wasting your efforts.
You shouldn’t have to work this hard.

It’s suppose to be easy if two people love each other.
So why do I make it so hard..
Im sorry Im not better.

I'll give you 10 days
To show me the 9 signs
And to hear the 8 letters coming from your lips...
The 7 days will help you to have some clue
For the 6 signs that can make my dreams come true,
But for me 5 days is enough—
4 you to know my worth
And to say the 3 words that can build our own earth....
That only 2 souls with mutual feelings can live,
But in the day 1 you decline it and leave
That's how cruel the world of love:>

We are born on our own
And we die but not our souls
We meet new people and old fouls
Wasting energy on every thing that makes our hearts boil
The art of peer pressure giving us every reason to dream
But the infertility of youth is the death of us
Chasing new inspiration from old ideas
And following lost role models just to find a purpose
Wasted energy..
Infertile is the land we work and gloomy are the roses that sprout
Too many times we get lost trying to find ourselves.
Then get depressed over fans and followers
Because we seek to imitate more than we desire to dream
Why do you try so hard to be different, why don't you try to be yourself....? Why do you have so many role models you privately admire as your idols, but still convince you to love yourself...? Who are you really and are your dreams real or just a subconscious illusion you've made your reality...?

Lonely words cling to weak fabrics
Of shallow and wasted minds
Like the free flowing of life
From a blood stained fountain.

Temples of direction and aim
Empty their contents into the fury arms
Of helpless longing, needs, desires,
That lure the man to mankind.

“Can I help you -- Let me help you.”
He looked through me kindly, lonely
With but a fleeting fire,
Shook his head, and walked away.
