Poem By Brendan Miller

The natural chemical in our brains that
makes us feel happy.
The only thing is that my brain has a lack,
a shortage of dopamine but this doesn't
mean I'm trying to be mean it just means
that the dopamine that gets you through
your day I don't have.
This doesn't mean I won't
Scream and yell for all the wrong reasons
And even go as far as committing treason.

But I don't do this out of spite it happens
that I might end up hurting someone when
I don't mean it,
Because that lack of dopamine isn't
visible it makes my mind bleed with
thoughts of hate and anger
It turns me into a stranger

To everyone around me including myself,
because that lack of dopamine, doesn't
mean I'm being mean on purpose
In fact I'm just looking for my purpose,
Because that goddamn lack of dopamine,
Sometimes makes me mean.

I went to school today to learn something new
Some numbers and facts that must be true.

Sitting steadily my mind begins to wander

I Hope You Fall In Love

I hope you fall in love with someone who always texts back and never lets you fall asleep feeling you're unwanted.

I hope you fall in love with someone who holds your hand during the scary parts of horror movies and burns cookies with you when you're too busy dancing around the kitchen.

No One

You can yell all you want
but no one would hear.
You can laugh all you want
but no one would hear.

A Beautiful Girl

As she stands before me I can't help but admire
The true beauty that I see with a burning desire.
She gives me a smile and I fall apart in an instant
Because the things she tells me aren't very consistent.


We strive for it every day
But shit always seems to get in the way of

This Is Me

You may think I'm crazy, lazy or stupid at times
But let me tell you something sir that this is not me.
People like me need to go for a walk every little while we do not care you may think why but we shall not tell.
People like me may think they are right most of the time, people just say give it up but no not me. People like me get mad easy so back off please. We have asked you once nicely now we really are pissed. But once people like me are off our rage we soon regret all.
