The Living Fear

Explain it to me.
Help me understand the fear that lies within me.
Why I suddenly feel that my candle of life,
Is quickly burning away at both ends of the stick.

The fear, the fear.
It continues to grow.
From the seeds of paranoia that I personally sow.
Is it all in my head, or is the danger really there?
None the less, the uncertainty is what I cannot bear.

Every cigarette I've had.
Every time my throat aches.
There is no medication for regrets and mistakes.
Ignoring the warnings does not make them untrue.
Being ignorant can only lead to the downfall of you.

Diabetes or Cancer?
Malignant or Benign?
Everyone tells me that I'm, *probably fine.
But they don't understand that the battle inside,
Is convincing myself that it's all in my head.

It's nothing. It's nothing.
Miguel, you're okay.
These are the mantras that I repeat every day.
To myself in my head, or out loud when alone.
Hoping that one day my health will atone.

fear,  living.

"Living in a box"

I feel important at times,
But I mostly feel worthless and unimportant.
People may say I am worth a lot,
But it's false.
I used to be important,
But now I'm torn apart.
I've been exploited enough to last a lifetime.
My friends are always busy or barely get together with me outside of school,
And I feel studying and school work is all that there is to life now that tennis season is over.
I just want to go to college already,
To get away from a hard life I have always had.

box,  living.

Life Worth Living

I want to live a life worth living
Where we can share the same bed every night
Your body on my body until we see the sunrise
I can wake up everyday to your beautiful eyes
And ill never forget you because you will always be by my side

life,  living,  worth.

The chilling tense room if atmosphere so dense
Im feeling alarmed, shut of the suspense
The cobwebs are common, my smile retracting
They're heading for the hills, loud screaming

I'm living in a haunted house of memories
Its dangerous, but light I almost see
My hearts pounding and soaring
The whisper call so scathing

haunted,  house,  living,  memories.

This Living Death

Oh, templed god, why did
You snare the palmer?

The importance of being
The autonomous? I am trying to
Stay away from me to keep
A watch on you.

The itinerant sorcerer had
Become a legate of gold trade.

The flesh is for sale, the
Small mouth with big hunger.

A fledging of scar has become
A bleed. The synopsis was out.

I am going to ask some question
From the bo tree today.

death,  living.

Living Perception

What happened to saving the world with music

It's different then false living

Live genuine

Live authentic

Walk straight

Walk with intention

This world sucks

I can relate

I live with principles that kill me

Because of the world's illness

And developed more to survive that I hate

Now no one knows the real me but me

And I don't know the real you

Suppose you

Could show me like some kind of reward


Before my nomination

I Like to make a statement

I am an amalgamation

Of my parents and life situations

And it's my purpose to interpret

I suppose it's on purpose

So when I see you

I'm blind to everything but the light around you

The real you that surrounds you

I'll never know in what way you tip the scale

Or what it will amount to

living,  perception.

This Trickiness of Living

Afraid of dying
But cheating death,
Always leaving his life in the balance
To see where it might

It's a risky game,
One with no clear beginning
Or end,
This trickiness of living—
That's the burden he bears:
So he tests the universe's limits,
Always pushing,
Always tempting Fate,
But never waiting around for the

It's only a matter of time
Before something

I try to write a happy thing
Something that's inspiring
But nothing seems to come out right
I'd rather try to pick a fight
Against the world we're living in
Full of hate and ripe with sin
I've seen the better side of life
But those moments seem to end in strife
Because the imperfect place in which I live
Has nothing more to me to give
It doesn't deserve a happy song
For everyone to sing along
And ignore the reality that surrounds us
There's nothing left to discuss
Our world no longer has a meaning
The importance being what you're gleaning
But that's not what our lives are about
So I will choose a different route
And if it means I walk alone
I can't undo the stitch I've sown
I've committed to my destiny
And it will be enough for me
Enough without the false appearance
Of happiness and self assurance
Fulfilled without the needless bullshit
That likes to get my fire lit
And this will be my happy thing
To forget it all and just start living
