So, as you've probably guessed, I write poetry. Actually, moreover, I write songs, but seeing as songs are a form of poetry, and songs don't have their own thread, I'm posting them here.

I Don't Care
I walk into a room, feel their eyes on me
they are only seeing what they want to see
I can't be that person, not any longer
I will never, I can't ever belong here

[::Refrain]
I don't care if they stare
[at my converse or my skinny jeans, shirt with a band they've never seen]
I can sense them judging me
[It's like I am black and they are white, but I won't, can't go down without a fight]
[/Refrain]

They decide I'm way too strange
Their positions they attepmt to re-arrange
to be as far away as possible
from the living, breathing human tornado

[::Refrain]

So let them stare
and let them judge
I don't care
anymore
I'm tired of trying to fit in
with so many standards, no way to win
so let them care, let them stare,
because you know I don't.

I Remember
Close your eyes
just dream for a little while
think back to the time
when you were so young
open your eyes,
stare at what you've become
and wonder why,

[::Refrain]
Remember the summer days,
picking flowers, making daisy chains
stealing cookies, running around 'till night fall
oh, we, we had it all...
do you remember?
[/Refrain]

And now you see everything has changed, [It's all so strange]
why does this world have to be so new, so strange? [It's all changed]
Can't you feel your problems knocking at your door?
But you can't cry, that's what the first 10 years are for

[::Refrainx2]

I remember
summer days,
daisy chains,
the cookies
the running,
the laughing
the crying,
and I want it back,
my soul's slowly dying,
oh what I would give to go back to that life for just a couple days...

<Improv w/ Refrain>

I know I can't... but I'll always remember

[::Refrain]
