»When it's over, let me know«

by Tiema Muindi, Aug 26, 2009

Would you let me know / When the flame of your emotions / Is burning low / That my relation with you / Is now but just a show? / / Would you let me know / When the river of our love / Is drying up / That in your heart / My thirst of love / Cannot be quenched? / / Would you let me know / When the lyrics of my…  sign in to read more »

Why did God give us friends? / God knew that everyone needs companionship & cheer, / he knew they need someone whose thought always near, / he knew they need someone kind. / To lend a helping hand someone to gladly take the time to care & understand. / God knew that we all need someone to share each…  sign in to read more »

»What Why and Now«

by Haley Melvin, Jul 8, 2009

The Things I try to do what I think is right or love, / But I almost always get it back at me, / People don't realize how much it hurts me, / People don't realize how much it hurts me, / I love him so much, / And I want him to know that so bad, / But I don't know what to because you don't talk to me.…  sign in to read more »

»Saying Goodbye One Last Time«

by Diane Brents, Jul 6, 2009

It was meant to happen different, / He wasn't supposed to die, / It wasn't meant to happen so soon, / I wanted him to stay a little longer, / I didn't want him to leave us. / I didn't get to say goodbye to him, / I wanted him to come back home but not like that, / I want to turn back time and make him…  sign in to read more »

As I wait for your car / To pitch up outside, / I dread the words / That I've cried. / Into my heart / A knife has been stabbed, / It's easier for me / To just be mad. / My heart is breaking, / My tears are running, / My world is shaking, / My friend isn't coming. / / I know it's hard / To look in my your eyes…  sign in to read more »

Friendship stands on one side / And laughs at another's silliness / Without them feeling any tartness. / It listens to the sound / Of one hand clapping / Applauding apparent foolishness. / It dissolves boundaries / Of individuality and replaces them / With the commonality and conviviality of companionship…  sign in to read more »

by MmaphelaLylian Kgatla, May 13, 2009

I woke up this morning, / hoping to hear you whispering to me, / I woke up hoping to hear you say good morning, / but you were not there, / some say I will see you again, / some say you will never come back, / some say you live in me, / but do you? / I then had to smile for the possibilities of seeing you…  sign in to read more »

You pushed and pushed... / seemingly got too far, / interposing your ideals / and grading my judgement. / / Your Roundabout knowledge of my head, / a falling routine fear, / quarintining my foremost desires / to pervert this native habit. / / You hand me to the edge... / forgetting the brilliant hurt / that…  sign in to read more »

You need to get somebody real, such as myself / I promise not many will do as much as myself / for a mooi kin as yourself / I may not have the Benz to drive u around all night / But I'm to loose my cool & walk with u under da moonlight / I'm getting tired of the interviews / I really just wanna be with u…  sign in to read more »

In peace rest dear brother. / I know you didn't bother / Nor worry 'bout trivials of this earth / That haunt us till we meet our death. / Rest in peace dear legend / How your journey so came to an end? / Your absence with tears we measure / As we remember all the pleasure / That flowed 'cause you're there…  sign in to read more »

»What A Small World«

by Ashley Fancher, Mar 28, 2009

Its amazing how small the world really is / I've met a lot of people in my life / Only a few take life for what it is / Not many people really get to know me / The ones I let in, get the real story and get to see / My life's story unfold / Right in front of many, still only a selected few see the stories…  sign in to read more »

»I see«

by Laura Arman, Mar 24, 2009

Don't let a man tell you who you ought to be, / and don't let society stop you from being free, / Don't let that pressure exceed your expectations, / And don't let others choose their own depictions, / Don't let your past freeze you from moving forward, / And don't let your unruly choices move you…  sign in to read more »

by Raine Lariza, Mar 20, 2009

Sometimes you may feel / Your problems are too much to deal / Sometimes you'll see that the heavy loads are all on you / And you'll say, you're in way too blue / / Try to look up in the sky / Just maybe you can seek some light / Never hesitate to call my name / Always bear in your mind that I am your…  sign in to read more »

by Hettie Van Zyl, Feb 14, 2009

The dewdrops on the rosebuds. / Sparkle in the sun. / But it will be just a matter of time / before they will all be gone. / By the heat of the beams of the Sun / it will just melted away. / And all the care in the whole wild world, / will not be able to let them stay. / / So are the tears that fall from…  sign in to read more »

Have friends and foes in life. / Friends who are in deed to be friends. / Friends can be need be a friend. / Expectation from friends could be fulfilled. / Expectation cannot be expected from foes. / Had friends who were friends by name. / Those friends were the worst than the foes. / Choosing a friend is…  sign in to read more »
