I took something


I took something
To make me sleep
Give me happy
Instead of weep
Feed the demon
Who lives within
To fake a joy
I do not feel

I took something
Now I am tired
Let my mind rest
For just awhile

I took something

I Thought

I thought we were normal
Like everybody else
Not the love of a century
But something nonetheless
Until you came to me
A love so new and pure
An everlasting love
To last my whole life through
A coin it gives two sides
And neither disappoint
How must a girl decide
Between friendship and hope
However this game played
I know I count on this
Happiness is fleeting
A chance not to be missed
And so the story goes
A girl left all alone
Wishing for what she lost
And sad for what she'd known
***

WHY?

It makes no sense
If you ask me
That people try
To be what you
Need them to be
All that makes us
Different too
Makes us unique
Still you want to
Be someone new
Change your colours
Hide if you must
The very best things
That make you, you
You’re giving up
Chameleon
Changes his skin
Blends with the rest
Who wants to be
The same as him?
My quirky, loud
And nerdy self
Gets lots of love
From those who count
Just be yourself
Cookie-cutter
Girl undefined
Let your star shine
Know that you are
One of a kind
