I look into your eyes and I can tell something isnt right,
And all you can do is tell me lies after lies,
If you are like this I don't want you in sight,
Because inside my heart just cries,
I don't want you to see me cry,
Because that wouldn't make you feel good,
But why did you have to lie?

Now you are passed out without a care,
Probably thinking that I am a crook,
I just wish you weren't there,
As I stare at you with a dirty look,
Why did you have to drink?
Do you even care that I worry about you?
I bet you probably didn't even think.

Sry this one sounds kinda mad, that's cause I am, once again my dad decided to drink. I am so worried about him I don't know what else to do.

originally posted in Terrorism, but since it is an original work, it should be long here too

The Horror of Today

Our hearts sank to the bottom of our stomachs,
When we turned on the news this morn,
To hear detonation and destruction,
And also the lives that have been lost,
And those that were also wounded,
Could this be another terrorist attack?
From trying to help in the war,
What have the innocent done,
To be caught up in this horror?
Their lives have been lost,
And I pray for their families,
That they will make it through,
Hopefully this war shall be won soon,
And I ask myself,
How many innocent must die,
Before peace is once again restored.

Today my dad gave me a chore,
That I find quite a bore,
And that was to cut the grass,
If I had my choice I would pass,
Because even if there is a breeze,
I would still fight off a sneeze,
It's something about being outside,
Because my allergies don't want to hide,
I also hate cutting the grass cause my hands turn green,
That makes for quite an unusual scene,
I am covered with pieces of grass,
That went air bound with every pass,
I really do hate this one chore,
But its done so I don't have to do it anymore.

I look at the mirror and all I can see,
Is the pain and tears that are inside me,
I cannot help but sit and cry,
Because the pain hurts so bad and all I can say is why?
Why do you have to continue to drink?
Did you ever just stop to think?
Do you know how much this affects others?
Your daughter is growing up her life is just blurrs,
But all you can do is just sit back and drink,
This news just makes my heart sink,
It makes me sick I cannot take it anymore!!!
This really hurts me, all the day to my core,
You cannot see how your drinking affects me,
I cannot take anymore, open your eyes and see,
I am not a baby you can just hold on too,
You cannot see all the things I can do,
I doubt that you ever will get to see,
Who I am and what I can be,
I am hurt and extremely mad,
But I should be extremely glad.
Can't you tell the pain I am going through?
You should stop drinking, that is what you should do!!!!
Dad, I love you but I cannot take anymore pain,
Because I feel like I already have been slain,
If this continues I will end up slipping away,
No matter how hard you try to get me to stay.

This one was posted in Fellfromheaven's thread. I once again am being hurt by my father's actions. I guess there is nothing I can do. I have tried everything.

Pain So Deep

My heart feels like it has been ripped apart,
Because once again you chose to drink,
I know you don't want to make me slip away,
But drinking is not how to make things work,
I know you don't have a problem with me,
But still I ask myself why,
If there is anything I can do to help,
Or just leave you the heck alone,
Everytime you drink, my heart rips,
Now it has completely ripped in half,
And now you place the blame on me,
Which doesn't make the pain better,
I guess it's time that I just slip away,
Because I seem to not be wanted here,
Dad stop please, your hurting me inside,
That is all I ask of you.

The phone keeps ringing off the hook,
Making me go completely nuts,
All I do is take a small look,
To see who was bugging me,
I realize that it was my dad,
Who kept calling me on the phone,
It was starting to make me mad,
With everytime the phone rang,
What made it worse was the question he had to ask,
Every five minutes that he did call,
While he ran his small little task,
And that was if I needed anything from the store,
It was annoying and I did wish he quit,
With every phone ring it was getting annoying,
I almost took his phone and threw a fit,
Just so he would leave me alone.

As I wipe the sleep from my eyes,
I let the sun shine on my face,
Feeling it's warmth my mind begins to wander,
Taking me to a whole new place,
I imagine I am in strong arms,
That wouldn't allow anything to happen to me,
For I feel safe and secure in these arms,
And I for once can feel happy,
I have a smile on my face as big as a mile,
Because I am always thinking of you,
You love me for who I am,
And wouldn't try to change anything I do.

Summer's Day

The air is humid with summer heat,
But a slight breeze is blowing,
I hear the sound of birds chirping,
And the sound of water flowing,
The sun it out shining so bright,
With a few clouds in the sky,
This is such a lovely day,
I'd hate for it to say goodbye,
Neighbors are swimming or out watering their lawn,
Trying to find ways to stay cool on such a hot day,
But nothing beats the heat like,
Eating some ice cream, what do you say??

LOL, trying to stay cool on a hot day. It will be soon when I can bask in a nice cool house.

The Night

The sun has long ago set,
Leaving the moon shining bright,
A sight that you could not regret,
Welcoming in the night.

As the moon rises into the sky,
Casting down its glow,
It causes a twinkle in your eye,
That only you should know.

You gaze up and let out a sigh,
How you hate to leave this scene,
But you must say goodbye,
Even though it is serene.

You close your eyes and let your dreams ignite,
For when you wake up it shall be light.

Thoughts and Hopes

Sitting here sorting the thoughts in my mind,
Trying to find something to hold on too,
All those good thoughts keep slipping away,
Leaving me to keep sorting through them all,
Each thought of hope keeps falling through my grasp,
I cannot seem to keep one in mind,
I don't want to keep getting my hopes up,
Then to have them crumble above me,
I hate having my hope fall into pieces,
So that is why I don't keep my hopes up,
For if I do they would crumble around me,
Leaving me feeling sad and blue.

Blah, kinda lame, but tryin to bump up my thread a bit.

Since man has walked this Earth,
I have always been here,
I can bring a smile to a wounded spirit,
I am a random act of kindness.

I live like an infectious disease,
Those who cross my path, I infect them,
Eventually we will meet,
In good and bad circumstances I am known.

I appear out of nowhere,
Whence I came, It is the same place I go.
The more you use me, The more people will know me,
I never ask for anything in return, Those are the rules.
I am selfless in my acts.

Therefore all I ask is for you to return the favor,
Seek nothing in return, In threefold you shall receive
Your reward, But when and where I can not tell you,
It may be now or at the end of time.

I am the rescuing act in times of madness,
I am the rescuing gesture in times of great confusion,
I am the rescuing hug that brings comfort,

Some do not understand, Some think I seek secretly,
When all I seek is the spread of who I am,
No rewards I seek or treasures I ask for,
Simply, I am here for all.

I am a random of kindness. .
