If I Were In Charge Of The World

If I were in charge of the world
I'd take all the leaders of major countries
Seat them all in one big room
With no weapons, and also have a civil talk

If I were in charge of the world
There'd be no wars,
No fighting, And
Just peace and joy

If I were in charge of the world
You wouldn't be filthy poor
You wouldn't be greedy rich
You wouldn't have to be scared...
Scared to go out at night.

The Ballad of Black Holes

They are always alone
My lonely black holes
They destroy everything in their path
My lonely black holes
They just want to make friends
My lonely black holes
No one knows the true beauty

He said hello to strangers and 'friends'
My lonely black holes
They left him alone
They turned their backs on him
My lonely black holes
They left him alone
If only he didn't hurt me
Of i would be there for him too...

Free Verse~

She came into this world

fifteen years ago

After four years of her life

Boom

Crash

Scream

Cries

It all turned corrupt

She lost my hearing She wished she lost my parents

They Rob, Drink, Steal, And they beat her

Until she spoke up


She came to a 'New World'

At least

It felt like it

This new home, Taught her

Sign, Speaking (again), Reading lips

Then Her past came crashing back into her life

Literally

Boom

Crash

Scream

Cries

The day she turned fifteen

Is the day they took her life away
