Getting angry at the problems and fears that haunt you. Then finally laying them to rest

You feel the evil around you and know that the struggle is useless but you know you have to fight

Never Failed
About how much you don't mean to hurt people but you still do and the guilt that comes with it

Common Courtesy
For me little nice deeds that don't say anything about how much you care are pointless

Just Want to Run
Me fed up with some people taking every problem like it is catastrophic, instead of having thicker skin

Is It I or Another?
The feeling I get when I run, as if I'm invincible and not feeling who I am or what I am

Slight Hello
Just a little smile or grin with a touch of care can change someone's day and spark a friendship

Undertone of Lust
Contradictions, contradictions. You see what you see but you have no idea of the truth

Water Under the Bridge
Putting things behind, being sorry for your mistakes, but moving on cause you need to

I like to be upfront with issues and I don't see the reason to hold emotions back

String Puppet
A trivial rain that brings such good emotion in the moment, but you have to find something more

This Kind of Why
Losing your control over your life and wondering why you are going through it
Spring 2000

Why do people do what they do, act like they act, that sort of thing

Sadness' Decoys
Feeling like you have never measured up to what you are supposed to be

That wonderful thing that makes everything okay when you have it
