I will defend your right
to say things that I don’t like
and though I may disagree
it doesn’t mean that I detest you
I’ll try my best to understand
how you reached that point of view
However uneasy listening
don’t bite your tongue
Let us see and hear you
come and speak freely
You may offend me
but then I’ll know we’re not in tune
Perhaps we’ll both learn something
if but how to be...

I'm sorry for the things I said
Sorry for the ways I hurt you.
I know sometimes I neglect you,
I find ways to desert you.
I didn't know you wanted me, I didn't know I was allowed
I didn't know I was allowed to love you and keep you for myself.
Your lights, your eyes, your body, your smile,
They're all for me now.
You'll never walk alone,
You'll never feel untouched,
You'll never ha...

Generosity is trapped in a photo
shared on instagram and liked by a thousand
tearing privacy into tiny shards
Emotions are sold by traders
disguised as "reporters"
and kindness has become a drug,
supreme to Tylenol
humanity is glorified as
a noun only to be used
on selected human "kinds"
that a racist can never be sobered

Many days I was in darkness
Many days I cried for help
Seeing no beauty in this world
I forgot what it felt like to smile and not feel pain
A simple act of kindness
Will you come here and slide with me?
A simple question
A simple task
Sliding down the slide made me smile
And feel the love of God

Sometimes you just have to give yourself a break from feeling bitter and give yourself a chance to love something. This isn't just about romantic love.
The best kind of love
Is without conditions
No doubtful suspicions
Or painful omissions
There is no one reason
For the feeling
It just is
With No Ending

She’s a bright star, within the unlit night
Guiding others through, the tough thing, that we call life
Her strength is beyond admirable to all
And even if she should ever fall
She would somehow, pull though
The things, that to others, it would inevitably un-do
Her beauty and grace, isn’t just a way to save face
She's had to fight great wars, every single day

I see you lurking about
making him say
to lure me out.
I am being smart,
my broken heart.
to paint the sky.
Let the world know
you are really
not a nice guy.
You are a trickster
who makes girls cry
with your stupid lies.
My schooled soul
knows the truth
is an illusion,

I'm just a broken doll, Unfortunately, no one can see. I was beaten and battered, But no one could have saved me.
It all began when I was alone on the shelf. The cruel world took me and I couldnt cry for help. I sowed my mouth shut and continued to smile. Nobody is coming to help, not for a long while.
I'm just a broken doll, Now everybody knows. Please forgive me for I do not know how your ...

True beauty doesn't lie in the skin
It lies in the light of the heart
The sweet tune of a beautiful soul
Created from the keys of a piano.
True beauty lacks physical aspects
It isn't in the clothes he wears
Or the figure that she carries
Or the way we comb our hair.
True beauty comes from within,
Something that does not wrinkle with age.
Something not distracted by a simple imperfection.

We blame others for a world full of sin
As we scream and shout about something that we read
But, to change the world you must first look within
How many lives could we save if only love was spread
Never using hateful words just trying to win
Just how many mouths could be fed
With all the makeup we use to cover our own skin
We wake up to a mirror full of dread

I liar, that’s what I am
I roll my dice from in my hand
I sit upon my throne
Forged from pain
broken promises, pretty lies
They’re all the same
traction, I’m unable to gain
I’m slowly slipping into my old ways
I was getting better
Now it’s worse
Every Name I hear, I curse
I cannot do that
she is perfect
she is sweet
I lay my life at her feet...
