How the Story GoesI remember back thenHow the Story Goes by jesusroxgirl
When I had nothing to lose,
Back in the day
When I could chose.
I feel my fate drawing nearer
Every second that goes by.
I feel the pressure rising
Every time I have to cry.
I know where I want to go,
But getting there's a different story.
I'll follow in Your footsteps,
But You'll let it be my journey.
Lead me onward to the sunset,
So I can let the credits roll.
Don't leave me dying in my heartache.
Show me how to heal my soul.
Everything new I learn
Is a memory that dies.
Every dream I want to burn
Is replaced by a lie.
Lift me up when I have fallen.
Take my hand and clear the way.
There is joy after heartbreak.
At least that's what they say.
I can see the pathway ending,
Finally reaching where I've run,
But the end's a new beginning.
Now to pay for all I've done.
With thirty silver shekels,
You've wiped out all my tolls,
But don't leave me in my heartache.
Show me how to heal my soul.
Another DayThis is not the placeAnother Day by jesusroxgirl
I've always known.
Woke up this morning
Though the sun still rose
As the clouds rolled in
My eternal night
Will never end.
Behind this face
I have a heart
All I know from the start.
The deeper in I go,
The thunder, louder, rolls.
I'm still a person.
I have a soul.
But you won't
Let me go
From the place
I once called home.
Drenched to the bone
I still feel all alone.
In the shadows lurk
That which stole my soul, the crook.
Although I tell you,
And now this trust
Has slipped away
And I lay down
For another day.
Drown in Our PainWhen everything's burningDrown in Our Pain by jesusroxgirl
And seasons are turning,
And there's no repreive,
We all just deceive
There's nothing but pain
And heartache to gain.
And we all keep believing
There's a rhyme and a reason
There must be a way
To detour the day,
But we're nothing but darkness
And we all seem so heartless.
We cannot replay
Every word that we say,
But we must have a chance
To make shadowed romance
With the whispers that bind
And the darkness we find.
Or the pain will come crashing
And our lives we'll be smashing
On our way out the door
To run away like before
Under certain conditions
That time will keep ticking.
Just a whisper of dust
We all will and we must
Take a chance but to say
Maybe we'll seize the day
Then walk out in the rain
And drown in our pain.
Seas Left UnswumSeas Left Unswum by Formlessforce
What closet poets are we,
who in moments more sober of thought show a stony face,
but lying alone at night hearing the rain's mourning fancy ourselves martyrs for love,
and epic heroes of romance.
Leander am I, and would take the strait in stroke to be with you!
Orpheus am I, and would venture into Hades to bring you back!"
But count us amateur Leanders as unlikely to swim the sea as the sea is to dry for us.
And perhaps this is best-
for Leander drowned,
and Orpheus lost Eurydice again in the end,
and how much worse should the fate of us imposters be?
Instead let me be the realist romantic,
one who can admit that the stars are simply spheres of flaming helium
(and think them no less enchanting at that!)
For Romeo am I not,
and have no dream of making my marriage bed in the crypt.
Here in the land of the living I will carry dreams to make the lovers of old quake.
ReflectionsReflections by Formlessforce
The waters of the void lay still,
a dark glassy ocean reflecting a scene that tormented me to near insanity.
The reflection of the man I had become ran helpless from the clinging ghosts
of all my past selves.
In the distance raged a grim red aurora,
the fires those selves lit in the name of corrupt love,
my attempts at making a beacon of myself;
To shine my own light.
Attempts that threatened rather to burn me up completely,
leaving only darkness to take my place.
Tonight a calmer light than they has given me the courage to throw myself at that taunting sea before me,
recklessly diving into battle against my very reflections,
the ripples of my impact scattering and destroying that wicked image forever.
That tranquil glow has taught me also that even the most overwhelming darkness is still only the absence of light.
I find myself in awe of its source:
That gray rock which has stood for ages against the night sky,
mirroring the suns light to tell the darkness Fear the dawn!
I love Jesus Christ, my Savior, with all my heart. I love seeing Him work in me and around me and through me. I can only pray that I'm glorifying Him in all I do.|
I'm a biochemistry major at a small private college in TN. I am aiming towards becoming a forensic scientist and am bent on getting a doctorate someday. I love the brain. I think it's amazing how God can make something so complex and make it work so fearfully and wonderfully.
I think about a lot of random things. I figure things out on my own quiet a bit. I also learn really fast and am very visual in my thinking. For instance, I learned how to french braid my hair because i visually unraveled a french braid in my mind's eye and figured out how to do it by putting it make together in my head. I also learned how to tie my shoes after my mom showed me once.
I'm also a martial artist. I take 5 Animals Kung Fu and Jujitsu/Kenjitsu. My ultimate goal is the be black in both and an instructor in at least kung fu.
I write poetry and try to draw. If you look through my gallery you'll notice that every once in a while I crank out a few gems, but generally I can only draw a good picture if i'm looking at a picture of what i'm drawing.
If there's anything else you'd like to know, please feel free to ask!
