Manipulated, Confused, Alone

Poem By James Lee Watts

I could tell you the truth, or I could tell a lie,
You wont realise, you don’t look me in the eye,
I can make you believe anything I say,
I can twist your mind, and make you think my way,

I’ll blind your eyes, hide the truth,
Treat you like a child, like a mere youth,
Make you do things to make me smile,
Mould you when your most vulnerable and volatile,
Just keep lying saying its all fine,
Hit you with it make you mine,

Grind you down, till you can no long fight,
But tell you to get up and push on with all your might,
When you slack, I’ll be kind to make you believe,
And help along my mission to deceive,
I’d even say those three words to get the job done,
All this is the name of fun,

Then when you finally trust me,
I’ll get you, I’ll summon your heart to thee,
Summon your heart forever, take it for my own,
Then I’ll leave you manipulated, confused and alone.

All Across The Nation

All Across The Nation,
Is Hunger And Starvation.

All Across The Nation,

Soldiers, Murderers Or Heroes?

“Salute the flag! …Serve your country! ” is all we hear,
But they don’t tell people about all the fear,
Wondering whether you’re going to live or die!
Getting up early hours still wanting to give it a try,


How do I feel about the love you show?
Do I feel the same? I really don’t know,
And do I think about you all the time?
Would I still love you through trouble and grime?

Best Friends

Remember all those times after school,
You would always mess around and act the fool,
Those were the best time ever,
I hope we’ll continue to be friends and fall out never.


Don’t do it!
Don’t put yourself through it,
It will hurt and you’ll feel bad,
You’ll feel angry not sad,


Slit my throat,
Slit my arms,
Stab that knife in both of my palms,
