I Say, They Say

Poem By Taylor Hainline

They say this love
will leave me sore,
broken-hearted and torn.

They say I'm a fool,
a hypocrite,
a tool for the pulpit.

They say have fun,
live life,
get out of the mud.

I say I'm in love,
that I'm free
and finally whole.

I say I'm happy,
a truth-teller
of my own life.

I say I'm a sinner,
who was forgiven,
and given a life.

I say I'm a daughter,
a princess of the king,
who will never die.

Look Deeper, Listen Harder

Was it meant
To end like this
All set up
Like a restricted bliss

Little Angel

Little Angel
can't you see
this world
Isn't for you and me?

So Selfish?

Is it selfish of me
to wish you were here?
Even though it's your dream
to travel the world?


Look out with eyeful
tell me what you see.
This world is full
of make believe.


Are your hands gentle enough
to wipe away tears?
Strong enough,
to fight fears?
