Time to Be BraveTime to Be Brave
When I was younger
I was happy and carefree
Now since my life's like this
I got to pay more attention.
So much has happened to me
That I try not to break down
Telling myself to stay strong
But why am I doing things so wrong.
I think I've had the worst thing happen
In my lifetime
But the only question is
How am I still alive??
There's so much I fear now
But people tell me
Don't let it get to you
Too late people, its happening...
Welcome to my life
You'll see how strong I can be
I will break out of this fear soon
And be better than I used to be...
It would be nice
If people would watch what I go through
Watch me battle some of the worst
And say "wow I wish I was as brave as you!"
I Lost Everything About Me...Trying to talk to you
But you wont acknowledge me
So here's my way of telling you
Through my poetry.
I listen to songs
That remind me of what's happened recently
Thinking how I could've lost you
But we ended up being lucky.
Your words have haunted me
I don't know if you were kidding
They got to me, you spoke to my heart
And yet I almost split us apart.
I didn't care about the car
I was more worried about you
But trying to tell you all this
Is impossible to get through.
You refuse to listen to my words
And you'll never tell me about it
Do you know how scared I was??
My life, has gotten worse.
Everything's new to me now
Its like I cant see straight
I'm blind as a bat
Just like in the daylight.
I'm a spirit now
My Soul died in the crash
Everything I used to have
Has all been smashed.
You once told me
Id never cope without you
I said you're probably right
Even if I lied, you know that's the truth.
The sound of the truck
Hitting my car
I didn't have a chance to react
But you were as brave a
That Day Came....That Day Came
Ill be driving along the road
Watching the Ambulance, Cops and fire truck go by
Just randomly thinking to myself
"Shit, their gonna come for me one day"
I've gotten into so many close calls
My family and friends said Id learn the hard way
I didn't think it would ever happen to me
But hey, that day came....
A friend has told me
Ill be the death of her someday (she's alive thank god)
I tried to be careful with my driving since
But hey, that day came....
The truck had smashed into the side
Taking off my right bumper
We were okay and alive luckily
But those sirens came for me today....
July 10/13 Accident day
All Here For A ReasonI turned onto a shady, well-manicured driveway that, for all intents and purposes, looked harmless enough. Maple trees lined both sides of the street, and a parade of Canadian geese marched across the road to a wide duck pond with a flamboyant fountain. There were blooming crepe myrtles and rose-of-sharons, and as I grew closer to my destination, neatly trimmed gardens with neatly trimmed bushes.
I stopped to let the geese pass. They looked at me; one hissed. I honked my horn and moved around them.
At the end of the road sat a collection of grayish buildings and a number of signs directing me to the appropriate parking lot. "Welcome to Ten Creeks Hospital," said one of them. "Please enjoy your stay." I parked in the visitor's lot. Surely I wouldn't be staying.
I was shaking when I got out of my car. I had spent the morning getting high. One foot in front of the other, flip-flop noises, hot sidewalk. Mulberry and magnolia trees, freshly shaved grass. A bench and pan for smokers. A set o
