Sometimes I just wish I could speak my mind, speak truth into another's life.
To be open and honest, to not care if their feelings are hurt.
To tell them of a life of living that is of worth.
Express to them the meaning of respect,
To reveal what it is to be selfless.
If I myself cannot teach someone, I wish that upon them something would happen that they might learn,
For to see their life turn around is something I yearn.
Painfully listening to their rude comments,
Informing them of the inappropriateness,
Only to be told there is freedom of speech.
I don't think I can do this much longer,
My patience is wearing thin,
I keep fighting a battle I feel I'll never win.
Why am I here, I am not strong, I struggle to fight,
I know the difference between wrong and right.


Sometimes, its better to admire from afar.
It always seems better in our own imagination,
for once I took my chance,
I was swept away by temptation.

I wish I would've just stayed shy and timid,
why must I have the ability to conqueor my own fears?
for now that I have finally done what I thought was right,
I will remember these coming years.

I took a chance,
A leaf picked up by the wind.
I fluttered about where it lead
And through such I have sinned.

And so I sit here and contemplate
telling myself now that I should just be patient and wait.

For when I take life by the reigns,
I only reap a multitude of emotional pain.
