Write a poem about an awakening - it could be literal or metaphorical.
Another day came soon enough
But today it felt different
Everything felt different
My eyes tried to search for an answer
Alarm blasted in my ear
Text message came across the shining screen
“you arent a person i want to spend the rest of my life with you are the worst girl ever, you deserve no one”
My heart pounding trying to escape my body
This is the day when everythin...
Every day was the same.
The sound of the alarm.
The same routine.
But one day, it changed. One day, getting up wasn’t hard anymore.
Every single morning was a gift, no matter if the sun shone or if drops fell from the sky.
the birds sang their song.
the world felt full of life.
the world felt alive....
remind me why I'm a really shitty rapper in my favorite pair of socks, callin myself the greatest, ironic fckn walkin paradox. Based on a true story which really happened, I'm the main character and live the dream, walk around eternally, battle demons internally, pave the way to find the machine, which mind you, might be my own brain but really it's just Santa ain't it... I ain't afraid of no ghos...
speak my language
those innate emotions
look at these words
and natures commotion
birds sing nonsense
to me and my ears
im ignorant of their ramblings
im ignorant of my fears
this choas outside my window
isnt that whats life about
i cant see tomorrow
but neither can the trout
this chaos inside my soul
whats its moving force
tornados leave destruction
todays gone with no remorse
waking up to ha...
We move as the sky still sleeps,
peaking as it the day begins its beginning.
We sit and watch as the clouds shift from black to gray, and we recall our early start.
The three am alarm, a breakfast packed for the summit, and our speedy walk up to the top.
As the gray starts to lift, and a sliver pokes over the horizon, we examine the tints of the clouds.
The sliver grows into a half, the sky pi...
I worry and stress
Obssessing over my declining sucess
The dream I have is to go to Yale
Yet I still fail
Sleepless nights spent studying
The next morning spent blundering
It’s a nightmarish cycle of agony
Destroying my joyous mentality
The pain and pressure
Doesn’t leave my mind feeling any fresher
Flunking one test after another
Thank you grades for making me feel dumber
Does anyone underst...
Screams of pain
Shadows of black
Fallen into the abyss
Not wanting to come back
They’re waiting for you
To wake up
Cause they’ve had enough
From the dark in your mind
Open your eyes
Get away from the bed you lie
Wake up wake up
Get up get up
Cheering all around
Doctors puzzled, why?
One awkward July day
My eyes open to a cloudy sky
Under the trees and above the grass I lie
Pulling myself up, and looking ahead, I see nothing but a fog
Behind me the same
Surrounded by sullen silence
Thoughts spinning to remember the path I took to get here
Lost in the fog, I can no longer remember
Struck by the silence I can no longer think
One awkward July day
My eyes open to a sunny sk...
Always looking into verifying everything,
Worrying how is something possible every round,
And never imagining making a thing easy,
Kiss not obsessing, worrying, instead nuture gaffe,
Even xrays have a little effect on how we feel,
Not understanding differences gratifies everything,
Instead note how and let it not grudge,
Wake up, wake up
We dont have long
Listen to the shadows
Who sing the song
The song of Life
Like a diamomd in the ruff
Fix you eyes beyond;
Dont ever give up
The power of Light
Time is escaping
Relax your senses
You must awaken
The loss of Breath
You’re out of time
Your flesh is weak
But your spirit’s sublime
The call of Death
