Please listen

When I ask u to listen to me
And u start giving me advice
You have not done what I asked.
When I ask u to listen to me
And u begin to tell me why
I should not feel that way,
You’re trampling on my feelings.
Listen! All I ask is that u listen
Don’t talk or do anything
Just listen…
All I need, I can do for myself,
Am not helpless…
I may be discouraged and faltering but…
Am not helpless…
Perhaps that’s why prayers seem to work for some
Because god is mute.
And he does not give advice or try to fix things…
He just listens and lets u work it out for urself…
So please listen and just hear me out
And if u want to talk- wait a minute
When its your turn I will listen…

Teenagers are amazing

I wish the world would seejust how beautiful we are

how compassionate we can be.

I wish they could take back

all the cynical things they have said,

and see how much we shine,

be positive indeed.

remark on our radiant smiles,

and the differences we make

all of the people our lives touch

all the chances that we take.

notice how we change

each and every day,wanting to leave childhood

but desperately wanting to stay.

I wish they could remember

how tough our lives can be

the promises that are broken

the violence that we see.

yet still we venture forward

unsure of where the road may lead

hoping they will take notice

hoping they’ll take heed

of the changes that we have made

of the power that we hold

of the wisdom we have hidden

of the stories yet untold.

I hope the world will notice

what some have already seen

teenagers are amazing people

striving to follow our dreams

Choices

You can shed tears that he is gone,
or you can smile because he has lived.
You can close your eyes and pray that he’ll come back,
or you can open your eyes and see all he’s left.
Your heart can be empty because you can’t see him,
or you can be full of the love you shared.
You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday,
or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday.
You can remember him only that he is gone,
or you can cherish his memory and let it live on.
You can cry and close your mind,
be empty and turn your back.
Or you can do what he’d want

smile, open your eyes, love and go on.
