The War Within

Something is getting in the way I am trying to find my place In life's lace Running in society's pace No way to truly reign unless you pay Talentless and afraid Wonder-less Then betrayed Thought you had friends, yet lies and decent is all you sustained As if life has already been arraigned But that is something that you school teachers dare not address Everyone's in on it That's something i know for a fact Life has somethings that are only offered in contract As much as it hurts its a truth that you have to admit This is how its going to end You can lie to yourself, and pretend But all i say is true I at this point don't care if you end up sad and blue Life is organized, love is blinding, there's no real surviving In order to beat life's game Don't follow in the footsteps of whomever crosses your path Don't cry when you don't win, That sets off wraith Make your own dynasty Forget whom ever has doubts Wipe your tears and erase those pouts I never said it would be easy Because we are the prisoners In this life and the next If you cannot prove to yourself Then your a facade like the rest Are you ready I know the first step alone will be unsteady But in the end When there's no one there, That includes your friends That you have to be there just you And then you have to prove to yourself What you already knew....

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
