Draft 1

Poem By Brendan Miller

We are brought into this world without knowledge.
And then pushed off the ledge into the unknown I don't know what will be thrown
at me each day of my life. I can prepare all I want but there is no escaping from what might happen.
When we are kids we don't understand this concept, because we still live without knowledge. And that's why we are happy as kids, we do everything for ourselves and that's what keeps us happy.
But once we hit the age of twelve life becomes complex, and then we are hexed with the true responsibilities of life. And as we get older that knowledge grows. Every time that knowledge grows we overthink, and overthink, and overthink, what do I say next what do I do next? Not overthinking kept us happy as kids but now we are forcibly flexed into things we'd never expect to do. By the time we hit high school that forced flex becomes saving out back from being forcibly snapped.
Snapped into a world of emotional pain, especially heart break fucks with the brain and makes you want to shrivel up and die for that is the implosion you feel in your chest.
So to deal with that burning pain you start to burning weed so you no longer are tempted to do the deed of wrapping the belt around your neck and pulling harder, harder, harder, until you realize the futility of the act.
So you hit yourself in the face and realize your place is hitting bowl, after bowl, after bowl, after bowl, until you've lost track and sent yourself into the ultimate high where there are no emotions. So you can avoid being snapped, and trapped in a world of emotional pain.
Thinking you are wise and seeing the world from a different point of view, but in actuality it is stupid and just not you. However that urge to avoid that emotional pain grows larger each and every time you hit bowl, after bowl, after bowl and then you finally realize that it has stole.
Stole your life away and everyone in it because even your parents don't know who you are, and of course that leaves a huge emotional scar, to which you were trying to avoid this who time. After months you finally land back in reality, to find that there is no such thing as avoiding emotional pain. For every time we get a scar it will fade never heal, so make sure you never steal your life away, and push yourself off the next ledge.

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.
