Don'T Forget To Smell The Roses

Poem By Brianna Rollings

For the last year of my life
I forgot to smell the roses.
My reason for living
just faded into the midst of the rain.
And I haven't been able to remember
all the things i never wanted to forget.
And before I knew it
everything changed,
so fast that i didn't even get a chance
to say goodbye
to all the things I left behind.
And the only thing I wanted
was to hear the song
filled with compassion.
But here I am.
Left with nothing,
besides a subtle noise
from the strumming
of a guitar string,
and the lyrics of a song
that were never meant to be sung.
And I never found out
what he was trying to say.
For the last year of my life
i forgot to smell the roses.
My reason for living
just faded into the midst of the rain.
And I haven't been able to remember
all the things I never wanted to forget.
And before I knew it
everything changed.

Don't forget to smell the roses.

This Is The Way You Left Me

This is for all the times I've tried
to become something more
and for all the times I forgot
what i was living for..

Only Wanting More

Every second of her life
just passes on by
nothing changes,
yet nothing stays the same.
