They hate you because your you
They make up lies and call it true
They're fake behind your back
Hoping someday that you'll crack.
They hate you because your real.
no matter what they say you always heal
They're surprised to see you rise,
That you're not affected by all these lies
They hate you because you smile at them
It shows them that your a real gem
You are always true and do your best :)
Sometimes these haters just cant test
They hate you for no reason
Despite it all, you smile
whatever the reason
At the end of the day
All i'm gonna say
All i plan to be
-Sanderline Fleury :)
encouraging, grief, hope, strength,
Hold onto life, my little leaf,
in spite of pain,
in spite of grief;
and, when the wild winds rape the bough
till trembling more than now,
you almost lose your grip:
hold yet to life.
Hold onto life, though brittle brown,
remains alone of life’s fair gown;
for Spring must come again, I know
and warm your roots ‘neath melting snow;
you cannot give up now:
hold still to life.
Hold onto life, through life seems past,
and though the lots have all been cast;
for somewhere Summer walks in green
and somewhere Love crowns her queen
who knew him not below:
hold on, then, go.

allegory, confidence, identity, integrity, passion, strength, sympathy,
With a greatness of spirit!
Never vindictive . . .
Generous and forgiving . . .
High-minded and always just!

anxiety, dark, grief, heartbreak, rain, smile, strength,
Forlorn tinged faces reminiscing old times
Where smiles did not enshroud an ache,
And the grueling effort it had to take,
Cries of help in their throat they were caught
Feeling a shimmer of serenity not a bit distraught,
But that's the thing about pain,
It might leave for brief moments,
But comes back like an unavowed promise from grey clouds to carry the rain.
conflict, courage, grief, growth, strength,
Like a stubbed Toe
Uncontrollably and sometimes close to a
Devastating fear of permanent failure
Until we accept
Until we accept
And grin for the favor
Of the full torture of
Again, and again...
Whatever you need, I'll be...
A life preserver thrown out to sea,
umbrella to shelter you from the storm,
the wool blanket to wrap you and keep you warm.
Your favorite song played on repeat,
warm fuzzy slippers to rest your weary feet,
I'll be whatever you need me to be.
I understand you pain, I see your sorrow,
I'll hold your hand until you're ready to let go.
grief, moving on, strength,
There is a View
There is a view, slightly obscured,
by tilted head and squinted eyes
sad hazy tint of things abhorred
tears unshed when a flower dies
long shadows cast
on future’s past.
Grief’s sight will clear, it’s heart endure
high in the scented pines faint cries
incite the frozen hawk, restore
dead gaze, unfurl bold wings, arise
by winds of change.

death, humanity, strength,
As it sets, the sun streaks the sky
Cornucopia of festive ribbons on high
Emerald green, deep pink, aquamarine
Heavenly canvas, blazing scene
Scant moments later, it's pale overhead
Sunset vanished, its pigment bled...
An earthly candle tapering down
Flickers weakly toward the ground
When of a sudden its wan flame ignites
A last burst of glory, surging bright
Ere it collapses, a waxen pool
Its fuel all spent; its demise so cruel...
So too, as our precious days slip away
We sense the time has come to pay
Our final call on this Earthly stage
We turn back time for one last grand stand
Then hail the carriage of Death's Coachman

Rob me of my purity,
But once again it's all my fault;
Fell into the trap of false promises
Because I pressed play instead of pause.

Give me drink, rest, and solitude—
these are all the things I long for;
give me as well your finest food
and I'll ask of you, lass, no more!
My lovely lass, what's the matter—
why are you all down and alone?
Don't be vexed because you're sadder
than most, dear, for God loves His own.
Sweet girl, I'll tell you a secret:
if I were a young lad again,
I'd chase you for your sweet asset.
But as I am two-score and ten
years old (with wife in deed)—never
can I be your white knight with steed:
but your sadness won't last for ever
if you pray for the one you need.

Dirty rotten scum
to take the life of an innocent one
torn away from my childhood
but not yet thrown into adulthood
you've given me a life of pain
certain to only knowing, that never
again, will the days be the same
but I have found my new freedom
here, within these mighty walls
known as Gods kingdom

How can I tell you?
I can't stay with you.
Neither I can give up on you.
Fear of losing you is losing me.
It feels like slow death every night.
But we are just stuck in our spaces!
Unable to connect from two feet distance.

I gave my life for you,
My grit was your prosperity,
So that you could do.
I swallowed at the task,
Girded myself bravely,
Prepared to have a mask.
When self-awareness engulfed,
And loneliness overcame,
Determination was loved.
I fought a man every time,
I faced the thwarting enemy,
No easy game of mine.
I strove to either succeed,
Or to sacrifice my everything,
But the opposition to impede.
I thought of family and you,
Freedom and liberty,
And the rightness of the two.

Rise from the dust.
Keep the struggle alive.
But keep in mind, to live we must
courage, death, devotion, grief, hero, pain, strength,
On the wings of a mighty power holding the weight of our nation as one
the eagle flies above and beyond the clouds while calling our hero's home
While watching from the highest tree she will sit so she can see from afar
a nest of destruction of worlds of war and gore that has left her heart with a scar
The fledgling of her wings are lost one by one as a soldier cries and dies
but she will continue her swooping and diving catching each soul in her wings
with her head held high a tear unseen to the heavens she will fly.

Sinking in deeper,
No way to escape,
The dark and scary Reaper,
Fore told in the Book of Life.
Is this my end?
Will I ever see the light of day again?
No. My wounds, I must mend.
I must find my strength.
Stand my ground,
Face my fears.
Only then will my voice be found
I must survive.
Break the suffocating chains,
Run from the darkness.
Power will fill my veins.
I will Fight!
Fight the painful names,
The horrid memories,
The demented games
And escape My Black Abyss.

Time moves on,
and soon will tell,
when asked for whom
they ring the bell…
…and forty lost,
you left before twilight.
When it’s half as much,
at twice the cost,
in perfect light…
We live in castles
…made of sand,
we come as a stranger,
but leave as a friend…
your last first kiss,
those times will be
Your smile indeed
could cast a spell.
You learned to
play a bad hand well…
With all our hopes
and dreams in tow,
we are old too quick,
and wise too slow.
Life’s an elaborate
Would you live again,
if you had the chance?

I wake up with another tear
for I have again, relived the nightmare
will it ever leave me with any way to see
when will I again be able to see my family
the past is forgiven
so why is it still living
my heart was so broken
but soon after it was frozen
let it lie and the past die
for I have a life to live with
but the past is still being relived
how do I stop this past of torture
so I can find my new future

Keeping my head up, treading water
Cut throat surviving, struggling
Going under, death visits
Will to live, tested!
Selfishness Vs Selflessness
A Greater Love, encompasses me
God demonstrating mercy, for his children
Learning about forgiveness, cultivating, inner faith
Melody of Love, one can experience
In the darkest, waking hours, of everyday living
Self survival, learning how to live
Peace of Mind, Peace of Heart
Peaceful Spirit, Freedom in Love
death, dream, fire, hope, pain, sleep, strength,
Enfolded in peace.
The agony and pain
The burning, the sorrow, the flame
Enfolded in peace.
Entranced by life.
Death before sleep, and now
Entranced by life.
Enraptured by flight.
The strength within
Spreading my wings, I soar
Enraptured by flight.
death, men, pain, strength, veterans day, violence, war,
i wittnessed a war just yesterday,
being the reason for much dismay,
i'm sorry for all the death and blood,
and all the soldiers in the mud,
i wish i could stop it just can't be done,
i'll need everybody including a nun,
i'll need jesus to forgive our sins,
that knock us down like bowling pins,
i'll need everybody to read this poem,
in hopes that all the soldiers get back home.
bullying, dad, death, father, strength,
There I stood, barely nine
as he was taken in the light of day.
A prisoner of fate was I, given no sign,
to witness his limp body bruised lay,
yet as adult walked away from his shrine.
There I stood, steeling my stance
for the sake of my silence
as children mocked, giving no chance.
From solitude I drew my resilience
and gave no second glance.
