The human race cannot find peace
Not even in death are we allowed to rest
We must 'look down on others and send signs'
But think of a place where there is no time
A state in between death and resurrection
Where you have no thoughts
No worries, stress or crime
It'll only last a second
A blink of an eye
But you won't regret it
To rest in peace, not in the sky
To lie in a state of ...

There you go again
Fighting a battle hard to win
Facing every demon
That is stuck inside your head
All the secrets that are kept within
Every weakness and sin
They are ever screaming
Ripping your soul to shreds
Do not listen, my friend
Find a way to wear thin
The voices forever misleading
That you cannot move ahead
Never let them win

I hate this world
Without you it has one less beautiful soul
I sit here seething
Thinking of how good people die while others keep breathing
How can I make the world a better place
All the while trying to hide the tears on my face
I want to be part of a standing ovation
But how can I do that with no motivation
To change the world one child at a time
To give all I have, ...

The world is dull without your sparkle,
No noise as sweet as your laughter.
Your loss has left me with no understanding,
An emptiness I can not fill.
As I trudge through the mundane,
I impatiently wait to join you.
But as I pray for peace and acceptance,
Your love surrounds me like a warm blanket
And temporarily hides the cold.

Whenever you cross my mind
You are always smiling
Playing and running
Always an arms length away
Never within reach
I see you everywhere
And I want to call your name
To hug and kiss your face
But you keep going
Only to disappear

I wear a coat of armor
A full-body suit to protect my inner self
A shield against the outside world
But, every once in a while I forget a piece
And when I do it's the most important one
So, if you see me and I'm not put together
Please be gentle and approach with care
For you see, when I do forget a piece
It's always my heart that shows.

I see you there
Invisible, but still I stare
Ever smiling at me
Happy just to be
My mind plays tricks
As my emotions mix
Heartbroken but relentless
Chaos then calmness
Ever fighting for peace
Your memory will not cease
Until you are transformed
We will have to resist the storm
Your love gives us hope
As we walk along a tightrope
Learning to ...

I've reached my goal weight
I think to myself
But don't ask how I did it
You don't want to know
That depression and anxiety
Is causing my body to change
That trips to the gym
Are only to get through the mundane
Don't tell me I look good
Because deep down inside
Looks don't really matter
When your life is full of pain

I didn't tell you my feelings,
Looking for sympathy.
I know you've read stories
And have friends just like me.
So, I'll hear every word
And nod respectfully.
But, what I really needed
Is something that you can not see.
Open your mind, unguard your heart
And listen attentively.

Like traveling through quicksand
Slow and dirty
If you stop, even if only for a moment
You start sinking
There is no letting go or going back
So, you must keep going
To trudge on no matter what
No matter how deep you sink
How filthy or tired you get
To fight on through the grit and grime
To scream and curse
And claw your way from the depths
To stumble on until y...

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

As the day turns to twilight,
I sit and wonder what would be.
Would your smile be as bright?
With dark blue eyes that see.
Would you stay up late at night?
Sitting upon Daddy's knee.
Would you still let me hold you tight?
Snuggling as we watch T.V.
Would you care for sissy with all your might?
As you sing and play carefree.
Would your golden hair still shine in the li...
