Hate What A Simple Word

Hate what a simple word

Hate a word that will dismay many

Hate is for the reason that many kill

All for in the name of hate

We were taught to be compassionate and loving

To treat our neighbors the way we want to be treated

With hate?

Love, ahh love what a wonderful word

The truth is that it wasn’t l o v e

It was just an illusion

Tricks up your sleeve and nothing up mine

See hearts break and are malleable

So I tried to change yours

Instead mine got torn

Ahhh love, love


Never will you?

Do you mean everything you say?

Every line, word (you’ve said that’s) based on us, being together till the end.

Symphony Of Sorrow

Symphony Of Sorrow

Life is nothing but a symphony

With all it’s notes

All of us living are but instruments

And it’s conductor not seen but felt

Like the notes that are heard

Love is just but the composing of the composer

With its mystical wonders

It amazed yet nullifies

But if the sound is strong so can it live on

But as music fades and the instruments get put away

The only thing putting it back together is the orchestra and the conductor

Love is but a piece that only god drew us to and that destiny put back together

And the symphony lives forever

Days and days go by

Roses wither away, red to black

The petals which once represented something much more are now ashes

Destroyed but not by fire but by your own hand

Leaves fall off trees yet they live

What about this?

Feeling pain is the worst thing.

Especially when you’re a teenage kid.

Pain came from within all of us.

Tears of Pain

Tears of pain stroll down my cheek

Tears of pain go down valleys of shame

Where the weak walk and where the strong are never found

Tears of pain that for years built up

Where every month it built up

It rushed out like a river breaking a dam and flooding a city

Tears of pain that will never go away

Until I don’t breathe and never feel

Will these tears of pain go away.
