Be a Rose

Be a Rose

By Diana Jillian

To break out of your shell
You must face whatever hell
For addiction is a security blanket

Get the mind to unwind
Set it back on rewind
But don’t go too far back

To figure what went wrong
Or to place it into a song
Don’t let yourself get trampled on

Focus a face in the crowd
When things get too loud
To help keep you in the light

You can be both: soft as a petal
And as hard and sharp as a metal
Remain the thorny, sweet Rose

When life gets too loud
Remember to face the crowd
Find that familiar face

Best of You

Best of You

2pts-Quote Ferris Bueller
“Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.”

1pts-Mention a favorite song

Picture:

In the mist, a bittersweet sunshower
In my hand is a cone with a flower
All I wanted was to see the best of you

In life I’ve learned it moves pretty fast
Within a blink of an eye you just cast
Because you failed to stop and look

Stop and look around once in a while
And treasure each moment with a smile
Never take a minute to miss any of it

Without enough care or growth around
We can wilt and perish into the ground
For we are all like a cone of flowers

Among the weary eyed and the rested
Despite the constant feel of being tested
We must remember to show compassion

Silence

You can’t study the darkness by flooding it with light
What you need is what you can’t do with ordinary sight
Like a car stalling in an abandoned alley or a driveway
Forgetting where you put your keys can ruin your day
These are the places silence goes
Going for a swim and losing what’s right in front of you
When eyes deceive and turns to gray of what was blue
Searching and struggling for a vibrant red to help suffice
And in a moment you forget all the things that were nice
These are the places silence goes

LONGING

For the longest time I was longing
Even knowing what I know now,
I still have a longing desire

I guess that will never leave me
The longing, that is
Until my dying breath

But if I am longing
Does that mean I should pursue it?
Is it really worth the risk?

And all the safety you earned?
I guess I’ll never know.
Longing forever put aside.

I’d do anything for you
But you can’t see that
Because you’re not real
I wonder how you’d feel

I’d do anything for you
If you truly were alive
No matter how much I try
Or wish for, or how I cry

You exist only in my mind!
