Hello, & welcome to our group!!
My School Says I'm Worthless (sort of a rant)I'm a criminal because my values aren't their valuesMy School Says I'm Worthless (sort of a rant) by Raevenous
And I'm scum to say the least
Because I'm not on their list
Ones who have their lives set out
And drink from molten glory raining down from
School top balconies...
And I have myself left to blame for all the non-attempts
And truancies; the bleak distractions
That help me escape the inviolable test-score stares
Of disapproval that I attract from their
And they're forced to ask me 'Why?
Why are you still here?'
And I can barely say
That I'm afraid to leave.
That I know that no-one knows
Or what they want to be
But unlike those
I gave up
A while ago
And they can't tell me to my face that I'm a failure so they heavily imply
That my lacking presence
And even less impressive
Tendency for slacking off is evidence
That I am stupid and a fool and nothing more than such a waste of resources
And it's a disappointment
That I don't hold their ideals
Can Your Parents Relate?You, the girl in the corner of your bedroomCan Your Parents Relate? by Rifle1980
That with each passing year since birth
Has had her confidence sold to those that stare
For so much less than it is worth
When it should be a priceless commodity
Especially to a doting dad
Is he not supposed to give to his child
All the things that he never had?
You, the girl in the corner of the classroom
That has forgotten how to smile
Are you tired of being told it’s just a phase
And you’ll snap out of it in a while?
It should be obvious that you are struggling
Especially to a loving mum
As she's already lived through those tearful days
That for you have yet to come
You, the girl hiding in the shadow you cast
Please accept your parent’s flaws
No matter what success or failure you taste
Do not let them be the cause
They created a life in love or in lust
Now nurturing has turned to neglect
A bird feeds her young till the day they can fly
So maybe now you should leave the nest
God's HeavenGod's HeavenGod's Heaven by AMSnowOfficial
Written by Adam M. Snow
A vision splendid of the Heavenly scene,
filled my mind with an image so clean:
the purity of the road from which I walk,
beyond the pearly gates so pure and white;
brighter than the sun's brightest light,
where the saints goes to flock.
Awestruck was I, with bright colors so new;
beyond everything of this earthly hue.
They glowed from the flowers in eternal bloom;
no death is seen, no weltering of a rose;
true beauty only God could compose -
with great fragrance, oh Heaven's perfume.
Oh the Heaven's perfumes, intoxicating scent;
so greatly with love, Heaven's intent.
Entwined with the sounds of the Heavenly choir;
great melodies with angelic boasts.
And out of the mouths of the highest Heavenly hosts,
singing with voices of fire.
Oh the tunes of Heavenly chorus great,
flowing with love and overflowing the gates.
The power's so great I fall to my knees,
I cannot help but join in to sing,
(O' great is Thy forever King -
great is Thy Maker of peace
The Raven Metaphor“Oh raven, please take pity, won't you just leave me beThe Raven Metaphor by Rifle1980
I really am not in the mood for this tonight”
With that the raven for once seems to heed my warning
And from up on my seventh floor apartment takes flight
Between you and me I doubt it was real anyway
Just some lazy, overused and tired metaphor
The dark feathers symbolising the violent mood swings
The pecking beak are thoughts I tried hard to ignore
Oh to live a day without her emotional turmoil
And without her beady eyes watching my every move
It seems misery loves company when no one else does
And although it’s hard to admit it I loved her too
“Oh raven, please take pity, won't you just leave me be
I can no longer stand the din of your deafening call”
With that I'm compelled to try to follow the ravens lead
But from up on the seventh floor I begin to fall
Between you and me I doubt this life was real anyway
Just a series of events sent to confound and confuse
This life leaves no scars from the inter
