strong one


sometimes i feel like my life in out of control
i sometimes just give up and crawl in to a hole
i don't want to give in i don't want to let go
its just so hard to stay when my life seems a show
if i could be happy in this world i could grow
yet i cant because everyone wants power its so low
well if you want power theres one thing you should know
with power comes responsibility is that a blow?
i don't need power i need life nice and slow
all i want is to be the worlds friend not its foe
the choices i get given the choices i blow
all down to my anger that i cant seem to let go
i ask myself give me a reason any reason at all
why you have to go shouting and punching the wall
is it anger release or me saying i cant take this anymore
i don't know why i brake on the floor after slamming the door
all i know is i am meant to be the strong one after all

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
