Reflection
There is no better time than the present 
To review the past it will only take a second 
Reflect 
Breath 
Think
Am I satisfied
Or horrified
I'm falling 
Farther behind 
Tired of wasting time 
This refraction 
Proves I need to change direction
This recollection 
Justifies I must take action 
This reflection  
Gives evidence I have to rethink my intention 
Stopped my progress 
Started to digress 
Now my heart is in distress
Today is my only chance to do my best 
No rest 
No time for self pity and sorrow 
This new life starts right now and not tomorrow 
I've been  slacking
So now I find myself back tracking
Letting life get the best of me
Taking away my destiny
Never again because right now 
Is where my new life will begin

I set the course
    I am the master of my fate, 
        I am the captain of my soul. 
                  ~William Ernest Henley
            It dosen't matter who my parents are
          My mother works in realistate 
       My father is a cook
     I changed my career six times
       Seen and heard things unimaginable 
         My fate is in my own two bare hands 
If I fail or succeed relies solely on me
   I ride the waves of destiny 
      Captain of my life
           I set sail on the winds of my hope

Good Terms
This is the best I can do 
There comes a time
When your heart 
Can no longer break 
When the reservoir
Behind your eyes 
Finally runs dry 
You say you wanted 
To end on good terms
In a perfect world 
We could still 
Be friends 
But the best 
Terms that this 
Can end on 
Is for me 
To let you go
The flame 
Is no longer 
A gentle candle 
But a violent 
Fuse burning 
And it would 
Destroy any 
Memories 
Still worth 
Holding 
So 
Leaving 
Each 
Other 
Is 
The
Best 
Terms
We 
Can 
End 
On

I Left My Heart In The Desert
I left my heart in the desert 
I left my heart under the sun 
I believed it was time to move on 
I was ready for a new chapter 
I was ready for a fresh start 
And all that was holding me back was my heart 
Well my heart followed me home 
The desert night was too cold 
And now my heart has a story it wishes to be told 
You don't have to change who you are to finally move on 
You just have to start fighting for what you believe in 
And enjoy who you are so that you can be happy once again

Literature
A walk through the Graveyard
   A rolling slate of fog cascaded its way between the gravestones. It caused the skies to reside behind the tide of ominous, gray water-light enough to hang itself above the soil. Near an unmarked gravestone, someone sat alone. Her back to the grave, as should gaze upon the final resting place. The young girl with almost perfect white hair had just a touch of silver resting on her shoulder. She wanted to cry but could not recall why. She seemed far too young to be laid to rest but in truth, within the house of death, all are a welcomed guest. She felt weak, yet strode to her feet, and walked along the hallowed rows of the reapers keep. Some graves like towers with inscriptions of their final hours.
   As she walked the ruffles in her gown swayed with each step every so slightly. An owl perched upon a slender dead oak turned it’s head around to watch her. Uninterested, it turned it’s head back around. Emerging from the ghostly shadow of the fog, her eyes

Is it worth the words
Many times I find myself talking in circles 
Saying I will be some place 
Only to end up back where I started 
I've seen people that were madly in love 
Murder the love they had with just a few simple words 
I've seen politicians back themselves into a corner 
Regretting past statements 
I've said things without thinking 
I've spoken out of turn 
There are some words we can't take back 
It's always good to think before you speak 
What I need to do from now on is to say what I mean 
And to mean what I say 
Otherwise my words have no value 
My voice has no meaning 
Is it worth having the last word 
Is it worth looking ignorant 
From my experience 
It isn't worth that 
Remember your words can change lives 
Your words can heal broken hearts
Words you say or write will inspire generations
And to me 
The little extra time 
The extra effort 
Is worth it

Guardian
It's hard to fly 
When your wings are made of iron
It's hard to float 
With this weight on your shoulders 
While every one looks ahead 
You watch their back 
When every one sleeps 
You're awake 
Sometimes it's hard to connect 
When someone new comes along 
And you're worried they might be a threat 
With wings of iron you might not be faster 
But you are stronger 
When every one leaves 
You chose to stay 
A Sheild, Guardian, Protector 
All of these words describe who you are

It truly is a fight
To keep a dream burning bright 
To still see the dim light 
Even after  only ashes remain 
If only just to sustain 
To have an idea so clear  
You held so near 
To never give up the fight 
Is to prove to everyone you were right

Literature
Looking Back
If you ever get the chance 
To write down your feelings 
Or keep track of major life events
Seeing them on paper 
Reading them again 
After forgetting them for so long 
Looking back into the past 
Seeing what you use to think 
Seeing who you were 
Being able to witness your own growth 
Or having a front row seat to your destruction 
Maybe you're lucky enough to be proud of 
All the trials you survived 
All the challenges you surpassed 
Maybe next time 
When you look back and read 
You will know 
The pain you're feeling now 
Will be just one more addition to your story

The Uncertain Future
There are times when 
You are alone 
Moments when 
You realize the person you were 
Is not who you are now 
Back then 
Things may have seemed 
Like a simple dream 
Now the uncertain future 
Looms over 
The simplest comforts 
Now make the biggest empact 
Just a smile 
Or a kind hello 
Distracts you from the unknown
These acts of kindness 
Reminds you 
Even in the darkness 
A bright future 
Is just around the corner

New come back
Everybody's always trying to make a come back
Like as if we all should roll out the red carpet cause they came back 
Should of been up front the whole time but I stayed back 
Everybody standing still holding back 
Stuck in a standstill revisiting the past going way back 
But I think I realized every single day is a come back and pay back and if we play it back
What we gonna do? 
Not stay back!
So I'm moving forward, with a new come back every time I wake up
I'm not acting like I deserve attention just for showing up
if I don't deserve it then that's just the way it is 
And the way it is and how it's gonna be
Are two different things completely from what I see 
Whether it's you or whether it's me I'm saying don't hold back cause every single day is our come back

Time
It seemed so plentiful 
That there was so much it left me empty 
Empty because it felt like it ignored me 
So much time at one point 
More than I wanted 
Now I feel I need more 
Now I  feel like i dont have enough time 
School, music, family, friends
My time is busy 
I need more time

What love is not, what love is
First of all love is not lust
Its not sexual 
Its not an obsession 
Its not a feeling of liking someone 
Its not something that has a measurement 
Its not something that has a time limit 
Its not something you can put a price on 
Its not conditional.
Love is unconditional
You learn to love 
Love is a commitment 
Love is a promise 
Love is something that does not change once it starts 
Love is a bond
Love is something that is hard to understand 
You can love someone without liking them but you cant love someone if you hate them 
Love never changes 
Love is forgiveness 
Love is powerful 
You can love someone from a distance meaning you can love someone that has hurt you but that doesn't mean you will let them hurt you twice, you can love them from a distance and because you love them you can forgive them
It took me fifteen years to understand love
But I realize that I am lucky

What you're worth to me
Just trying to figure out what you're worth?
 
 
You're worth more than the stars in the sky
Worth more than every ounce of gold
Worth every tear the world has cried
Worth my every ton of love in my heart
Worth every second of air made by the trees
 
 
You were blessed to move, to think, to live, to love, to have joy, and were given free will to chose you're own path
You are worth every thought in my mind
 You are worth every inch of space
 You are worth every mess up
You are worth a million second chances
You are worth loving,forgiving, liking, and seeing
 You are worth every word written in a book
 You are worth all the days of you're future
 
 Are you  really?
 
 
You are worth all the heart aches and joys
You are worth every light of day
You are worth more than all my dreams
You are all this to me
 Imagine all this and more, is what you're worth to God
 
Even with all the mistakes you'v

Literature
Something for a friend
Your mind is like a one sided mirror
It only reflects the past and whats their
It never want to show the other side of life
It never wants to share
You don't like the word hope
You don't feel loved
What do I have to do in order to show you
Your life doesn't always have to be blue
I can see the devil has your mind in his hands
He toys with the strings 
You can only see what's in front you 
You don't see what I see
You believe his lies are true
You are important 
You are beautiful 
You are one in a million 
You a loved more than a billion
You don't have to live the way you do
You can never fall so far that you can't get back up
You can always be repaired 
God made you with care
I know what has happened to doesn't seem fair
But diamonds can't be made with out pressure 
Warriors can't become strong without fighting a few battles
You may not see the value in yourself
You may not know if anyone else can
You were made by a specific plans
You were made by God

The Cure for Death is Life
In the world of the show The Walking Dead, an airborne virus has spread throughout the earth and has become part of the surviving humans. The virus becomes fully active once a person dies and they become zombified, a reanimated corpse.  One can imagine a zombified person to itself is the most free. It is free of many of the things that make us human. Free of responsibility, free of emotion, free of law and order, among other things. It can focus solely on its desires.
Sin is like that virus, in which once a person dies spiritually it takes hold and transforms that person in similar fashion. Sin, like that zombie virus is relentless, indiscriminate, and all consuming. Those that have been given over to sin can see things the same way. Free to do as one's heart desires, without fear. However, those who are on the outside (survivors if you will) see things with a much different perspective. They can see how that "freedom" is more of a bondage and how destructive it is to the host and

There is no better time than the present 

To review the past it will only take a second 

Reflect 

Breath 

Think

Am I satisfied

Or horrified

I'm falling 

Farther behind 

Tired of wasting time 

This refraction 

Proves I need to change direction

This recollection 

Justifies I must take action 

This reflection  

Gives evidence I have to rethink my intention 

Stopped my progress 

Started to digress 

Now my heart is in distress

Today is my only chance to do my best 

No rest 

No time for self pity and sorrow 

This new life starts right now and not tomorrow 

I've been  slacking

So now I find myself back tracking

Letting life get the best of me

Taking away my destiny

Never again because right now 

Is where my new life will begin


 
Reflection
I'm tired of letting life get the upper hand, I'm tired of letting opportunities slip through my fingers. I have nobody to blame but me. I'm at the point where I am angry with myself for letting this happen. So I'm doing something about it.

I made this on my phone I really hope it looks like a wave on pc XD , I hope its easy to read !!! I will fix it when I get home . 

It's our choice if sesucced. Success is just falling 1,000 times and getting it right once. No matter who you are if you take control of your life and dont worry what everyone else is doing then you will go farther than you could of dreamed. The choice is in our hands , never give up and you will never truly fail

This is the best I can do 

There comes a time

When your heart 

Can no longer break 

When the reservoir

Behind your eyes 

Finally runs dry 

You say you wanted 

To end on good terms

In a perfect world 

We could still 

Be friends 

But the best 

Terms that this 

Can end on 

Is for me 

To let you go

The flame 

Is no longer 

A gentle candle 

But a violent 

Fuse burning 

And it would 

Destroy any 

Memories 

Still worth 

Holding 

So 

Leaving 

Each 

Other 

Is 

The

Best 

Terms

We 

Can 

End 

On
Good Terms
So two things are going on here. One I tried to stay friends with my ex we broke up after 2 years and we managed to be friends for a about three months, but every day was a fight. Every moment was a struggle. A constant tug of war with my feelings. After a few more fights, a few more bad decisions and no signs of things getting any better only thing I could do was prevent things from getting worse. The second is I wanted to try something different with the word play and structure. I hope it is easy to follow and I hope that I was able to capture things literally coming to an end as it progressed. Thank you for reading the poem and this description : ) . I usually post more positive and motivational stuff and I will try to keep the majority of my content that way so don't worry if you watched specifically for that. Wow this turned into an update. If you haven't watched me but like poetry and find my content enjoyable or thought provoking please by all means leave a comment or a fav , your opinion matters to, I also accept criticism ^-^

I left my heart in the desert 
I left my heart under the sun 
I believed it was time to move on 

I was ready for a new chapter 
I was ready for a fresh start 
And all that was holding me back was my heart 

Well my heart followed me home 
The desert night was too cold 
And now my heart has a story it wishes to be told 

You don't have to change who you are to finally move on 
You just have to start fighting for what you believe in 
And enjoy who you are so that you can be happy once again 
I Left My Heart In The Desert
So I drove across five states in three days then drove back in three days. It was absolutely mentally and physically exhausting. In that week I learned a lot about myself. I learned a lot about people. I drove from Louisiana to California and back to prove someone I cared about that weren't alone. In the end, I only got hurt and a part of me changed. Luckily it wasn't for the worst. I didn't know how to move on, but I finally did, and I think I can be happy without that person.

well, this is strictly just my opinion and I can see most people that commented really liked it which obviously shows you have talent.  

As far as the music/beat/melody goes it's nice to listen, it sounds great.

As far as the lyrics go/audio, it blends in too well I can't really understand what you're singing about, I'm sure the lyrics are meaningful, I just can't understand them and maybe I'm the only one having this problem.

I have no idea how to fix that but as a suggestion maybe a different mic or recording software, lowering the volume of the music so you can hear your voice over it.

It just blends so well together it all sounds like one thing which if that's what you were going for then you did an absolutely wonderful job.

just my preference is I like to hear the music and the lyrics as two separate things and be able to enjoy both for what they are, however, I am not the average person I know a lot of people that like songs just based on how they sound and have no idea what the song is even about. Me I can't do I want to feel, relate and understand what the artist is trying to portray within their medium.

But that's just me, follow your own style, make the music you want to make, and always try to improve any way you can.
