    Illuminati . So much foolishness in the world

    So much praised ignorance Those who fear the darkness are doomed to live in it and be blind But those who understand it will find light Freedom of thought, expression , and choice Isn't that what everyone wants ? Knowledge can be a sword that swings in both directions...

    I wrote the first draft of this last week

    while I was having an anxiety attack which caused me to hallucinate. I thought about posting the first draft to display the pure, unbound disorder, but I decided against it, and revised it to try and turn the feelings into something coherent through the rhythm. Anyway, I'm not...

    The Heart that bleeds' Greed There could have

    been sorrow , there could have been pain but yet all i can remember is the void. The void of feelings once felt, it's essence leaving me in it's wake. Teasing, taunting me to chase only to find more of the same. My heart is a time bomb of desire, i have no control when i...

    So I said this at my graduation today.

    I received huge amounts of positive feedback, a few people said they want to publish it in newsletters. (schools, agencies, etc). So I figured, maybe it's worth sharing. People spend their whole lives Trying to figure out Who that are Why they're here. But I'm lucky...

    Our Bitter Sacrafice (1) Tomorrow might be

    Slowly all the color slips away,

    Faster everything changes to a gray. Farther I'll move away, From you. This madness in my mind, It's just killin time. This sadness in my bones, it follows me where ever I go. Ya know I'll be alright, If I can just make it through tonight. And maybe you'll hold me tighter...

    I hate when I think of a tune

    or phrase that I'm really proud of, but never get to record. And then 5 minutes later, I'm trying to remember what it is. I once thought up an amazing song on the stairs and lost it once I got to class. :/

    So, sometimes I get ideas in my head for poems. I mostly write lyrics, but occassionally an idea will pop into my head so I will write it down. This isn't very good, and I will probably adapt it, but I thought I would get it down whilst it was still fresh in my mind and edit it...
