Quiet and shy
Meek and mild

An observer of sorts

Not quite a wild child

Not in with the crowd

Just had a few friends

But when I let loose

The fun never ends

Always made fun of

By those that I knew

What I did to them

I never had a clue

School was my thing

I was a quit the geek

Heck I may still be

But now days it’s chic

A great sense of humor

And a laid back style

My medicine is laughter

My best trait my smile

I can be quite serious

Or I can be the class clown

Some may think I’m delirious

While others think I just frown

I try to stay positive

And see all the good

But I can’t fix everything

And that’s understood

There’s a lot of baggage

That I carry with me

But it made me stronger

To the utmost degree

There’s a shield of protection

That I use faithfully

But I continually pick at it

To set myself free

Winter Sorceress


Beautiful in her own way,

the winter sorceress begrudgingly leaves.

Spring has struggled to find its way in,

it seems to be what everyone believes.

She leaves behind a little token

that could present its gift at any time.

The threat of it still hangs in the air,

to unleash it now would just be a crime.

Exit she must, she can’t overstay,

the warm Spring sun is high up in the sky.

As it chases her out she glares back

as if to say this is not yet good-bye.

Beware of Spring fever in the air,

sometimes it’s just her cruel little trick.

Her token could burst at anytime,

once again the world could be cold and slick.

Shifted Secrets

secrets Pictures, Images and Photos

Secrets that you try to hide
twist and rot way deep inside.

Some are kept for the greater good
which is a truth that is understood.

Choices that are made in life
shouldn’t cause everyone strife.

The right choices aren’t always made
and that’s when lies begin to invade.

Is this better left unsaid
or should it be something kept instead?

Will those in your life be hurt?
Could it ever be leaked in a blurt?

Would telling only ease your pain?
If the answer is yes then please refrain.

So many decisions for one to make
with so many different things at stake.

It’s a constant battle for one to endure
all anyone can ask is that your reasons be pure.

Something Within


There are changes taking place

Something within needs an escape

A part that you’ll learn to embrace

There are changes taking place

Don’t be afraid, show no disgrace

It’s your inner soul taking shape

There are changes taking place

Something within needs an escape

The epidermis is just a cocoon

Inside is an ever changing being

That seems to shed layers with each new moon

Each of those cycles can be quite freeing

Greet the future and let go of the past

You do learn from it you’ll begin seeing

A human being isn’t unsurpassed

They should always be open to new things

The knowledge gained over time could be vast

Secret wishes made on butterfly wings

Could be carried off and come back granted

If you believe you can see what it brings

Influences do become implanted

In each of us no matter what we do

None of us live a life that’s enchanted

Just remember, to your own self be true

As your butterfly begins to debut

Field of Blue


Petals like velvet

All covered in dew

A day I won’t forget

Time spent with you

Early morning mist

You held me tight

And when we kissed

We knew it was right

In a field of blue

Together as one

We swore our love true

A new life begun

Things slowly faded

Over the years

I became jaded

From all your smears

I visit the field

To think of the past

How my heart has healed

And yours unsurpassed

Never Ending Winter


Looking to the heavens for a sign,

tears I have but I’ll try not to whine.

There’s been too much snow and my nose is cold.

Winter’s no timeless treasure of silver and gold.

It’s been below zero with the windshield.

Why must that groundhog’s shadow be revealed?

Every year a longer winter predicted.

From his cozy, warm hole he should be evicted.

My breath curls up like puffy clouds of smoke

and my chicken skin is really no joke.

My eyes tear up and my nose hairs freeze

all while the sun is out, what a damn tease.

Winter feels longer each and every year.

That cold, harsh air always feels so severe.

Dark clouds part to reveal the bluest sky

and down come those flake, why Lord why?

My So Called Life (a music blog)

I so love music!! I have over 10,000 songs in my iPod so I just had to do this out of curiosity of what would come up. I have a wide variety of taste, you’ll probably notice that by what I came up with. I’ll need to provide some commentary of course, with lyrics, some of them are a stretch while others are spot on… it’s weird how that works.

Ok here's how it works:
1. Open your library (iTunes, Winamp, Media Player, iPod, etc)
2. Put it on shuffle
3. Press play
4. For the first question, type the song that's playing
5. When you go to a new question, press the "next" button TWICE
6. Don't lie and try to pretend you’re cool...just type it in!

And the questions are:

Opening Credits-
Shoes ~~ Kelly
While I do enjoy shoes & this song, this one just doesn’t really work well opening lyric wise. Music wise, it’s a good pick me up sort of song & would definitely wake me up before I go go. I won’t post any of the lyrics since they are pretty straight forward if you listen, watch that last bit it’s a little explicit, hee hee hee.\\
Waking Up-
Never Again ~~ Justin Timberlake
This one is a stretch so here are the only lyrics that could possibly be relatable for this one (the 2nd half is said in a nanny nanny boo boo type of voice on my part, tee hee hee):
Wish like hell I could go back in time
Maybe then I could see how
Forgiveness says that I should
give you one more try
But it's too late, it's over now

Again, yeah, yeah
Again, again, again, yeah, yeah, yeah
Never get to love me

First Day At School-
The Kill ~~ 30 Seconds to Mars
This one is a good fit, not for the same reasons that the song is really meant for I’m sure but it matches none the less.
What if I wanted to break
Laugh it all off in your face
What would you do? (Oh, oh)
What if I fell to the floor
Couldn't take all this anymore
What would you do, do, do?

Come break me down
Bury me, bury me
I am finished with you

What if I wanted to fight
Beg for the rest of my life
What would you do?
You say you wanted more
What are you waiting for?
I'm not running from
you (from you)

I tried to be someone else
But nothing seemed to change
I know now, this is who I
really am inside.
Finally found myself
Fighting for a chance.
I know now, this is
who I really am.

Come break me down
Bury me, bury me
I am finished with you, you, you.
Look in my eyes
You're killing me, killing me

Falling In Love-
Sel Parte Ormai Di Me ~~ Il Divo
I don’t really know what the heck is being said, it’s pretty obvious that it’s a love song & fits perfectly with this. It doesn’t fit quite as well with my life cause I can’t say that I’ve been in love yet so let’s hope this is what it will be if/when I am

Mentre Dormi Accanto A Me
Ti Guardo A Penso
Chissa Cosa Sognerai
Ti Sfioro Appena E Mormoro
Puoi Sentirmi
Voglio Dirti Che Ora So
Niente Puo Cambiare Quello Che
Illumina D'immenso L'anima

L'amore Che Mi Lega A Te
E' Puro Amore Credimi
Nel Profondo
Tu Sei Parte Ormai Di Me
E Non Potra Finire Mai
Sei Tutto Quello Che Vorrei
La Mia Vita
(si) Tu Sei Parte Ormai Di Me
(se) Guardo In Fondo Agli Occhi Tuoi
Posso Vedere
Cio Che E Magico Fra Noi
Ed Amo Tutto Cio Che Sei
Adesso Piu Che Mai
Posso Dirtelo Lo So
Niente Puo Cambiare Quello Che
Illumina D'immenso L'anima

(si) Tu Sei Parte Ormai Di Me
Niente Puo Cambiare Quello Che
Illumina D'immenso L'anima

(si) Tu Sei Parte Ormai Di Me

Losing Virginity-
Loungin (Who Do You Luv) ~~ LL Cool J
Ok, this song isn’t a good fit at all for this one but I did manage to pull out one line from the lyrics that works, LMAO!! Oh, I guess the title works a little too.
Makin love, Duke is weak then he fallin asleep
Fight Song-
Hold On I’m Coming ~~ Sam & Dave
This one is acceptable cause I’m a lover not a fighter… LOL. Maybe lover is a strong word, I’m more of the peacekeeper or listener I guess. It’s sort of fitting since I don’t technically fight
Don't you ever be sad
Lean on me in times of bad
When the day comes and
you're in doubt
In a river of trouble
about to drown

Hold On, hold on
I'm coming, I'm coming
Hold On, hold on
I'm coming, I'm coming
Reach out to me
For satisfaction
Call my name
Quick reaction
Hey hey hey

Don't you ever be sad
Lean on me in times of bad
When the day comes and
you're in doubt
In a river of trouble
about to drown

Breaking Up-
Shoot To Thrill ~~ AC/DC
Ok, this one isn’t really a good fit either but even though I don’t like to fight, like I stated above in the last one, I can be evil when need be.. I mostly kill people with silence though, tee hee hee hee. So here are the lyrics that sort of work.
I'm like evil, I get under your skin,
Just like a bomb that's ready to blow!

St. Jimmy ~~ Green Day
Another that really doesn’t match so I pulled only 2 lines that work. I didn’t go to prom cause I really wasn’t interested but the tragedy of it is even if I wanted to I probably couldn’t have gone and that is funny to me now, hence the one line of lyrics
Raised in the city under a halo of lights
It's a comedy and tragedy.

Nature ~~ India.Arie
This one is somewhat fitting cause I’m pretty laid back & go with the flow. I also believe that the special person will come into my life if/when meant to be
Why you rushing
Let's sit back and watch
the flowers grow
Why you want
To swim against the tide
Let's lay and watch the river flow

Like the sun shines and
The wind blows
Like the birds fly
And the moon glows
If I am meant for you and
You are meant for me
Then we will flow together

Mental Breakdown-
My Last Breath ~~ Evanescence
I have to admit that this one works for me. The first set of lyrics are just plain crazy talk, LOL. It sounds like something my imagination would come up with in a fit of craziness... heck even if I were sane The rest of it just plain works.
i'll miss the winter
a world of fragile things
look for me in the white forest
hiding in a hollow tree (come find me)
i know you hear me
i can taste it in your tears

closing your eyes to disappear
you pray your dreams will leave you here
but still you wake and know the truth
no one's there

say goodnight
don't be afraid
calling me calling me as
you fade to black

Superhero ~~ Jane’s Addiction
I like to drive like I’m a superhero…. LOL! I do have a lead foot and when the music is a rockin my seatbelt I’ma lockin…LMAO!!!
I'm ok
You have that effect on me
But I need you desperately
You know I need you desperately

Brick or stone cannot hurt me
Madmen around the city go
They attack I'll bring them down
Making their chances super low

I oh, I
Hold to that elusion
I, oh I
I'm not your average guy

War ~~ System Of A Down
Ok, I guess more are unfitting than fitting cause this is another that doesn’t really fit cause I never really fought heathens, LOL. These few lyrics are somewhat fitting though.
Running away, a trivial day,
Of judgement and deliverance

Getting Back Together-
Too Much Food ~~ Jason Mraz
I must like this dude cause he is wordy like me! This is pretty fitting to a past relationship, or how I felt at the time maybe cause now when I think back I think I should have just ended it. If I had though who knows if life would be better or worse now & it’s not so bad as it is so maybe it was worth it all… life lessons learned
You can say that I'm one curly fry in the box of the regular
Messing with the flavor oh the flavor that you savor
Saving me for last but you better not eat me at all
Living in a fast food bag making friends with the ketchup and salt
People say that I'm crazy for not moving on to better things
Instead I'm sitting around trash talking with the onion rings
But it's much too soon to leave this easy life
Pass me the spoon. Pass the analytical knife

Cause your about to get cut and get cut down
It's all about the wordplay all about the sound in the tone of my voice
You gotta let me make my choice alone before my food gets cold
Better shut up or get shot down. It s all about the
know how all just a matter of taste
Stop telling me the way I gotta play. Too much food on my plate

I Want It That Way ~~ Backstreet Boys
LMAO! I haven’t been married but this wouldn’t be a song I’d want to represent it if it were to happen. Ok here is a part that I hope is true if/when it happens:
You are my fire
The one desire
Believe when I say
I want it that way

I definitely don’t want these lyrics to be applicable!
But we are two worlds apart
Can't reach to your heart
When you say
That I want it that way

Now I can see that
we're falling apart
From the way that it
used to be, yeah

Birth of Child-
Stand By Me ~~ Ben E. King
I don’t have kids nor do I want them but seeing what my sister, & other parents, have to go through with theirs. I would want mine to be more like these lyrics and work with me. The part where it says I wouldn’t be afraid or cry though is not so true, I’m a big tear baby so I’d definitely do lots of crying and I’d be afraid all the time… that is why I have no kids
When the night has come and the land is dark,
And the moon is the only light we'll see,
No, I won't be afraid, oh, I-I-I-I won't be afraid,
Just as long as you stand, stand by me.

If the sky that we look upon should tumble and fall,
Or the mountain should crumble to the sea,
I won't cry, I won't cry, no, I-I-I-I won't shed a tear,
Just as long as you stand, stand by me.

Whenever you're in trouble won't you stand by me?
Ho, stand by me.
Woh, just stand, now, oh, stand, stand by me.

Final Battle-
Who Let in the Rain ~~ Cyndi Lauper
This fits in a round about way and that’s all I have to say about that
when love gets strong
People get weak
Sometimes they lose control
And wind up in too deep

I envy lovers passing by
Out on the street
'Cause what they have
I couldn't keep
And I wonder who let in the rain

Death Scene-
Don’t Think of Me ~~ Dido
Well, I have to say that I highly doubt this will be my death scene! Here are some lyrics that may be a little fitting, in a whole different way than what they mean in the song though.

Does it bother you now
all the mess I made
Does it bother you now
the clothes you told me
not to wear
Does it bother you now
all the angry games we
Does it bother you now
when I'm not there

And it's too late and it's too bad
Don't think of me
Oh it's too late and it's too bad
Don't think of me

Whew, & that is that. Now if I could have hand picked the songs they would have been much different ones. Then again, I probably wouldn’t have done this at all because there are too many to choose from & it would have taken me so very much longer!! Ok, so that is my loosely themed life… LOL. How would yours go???

Daily Struggle


Always walking close to the edge

No longer living for the rush

The demons always close at bay

I choose to honor my newfound pledge

I can not stray, my soul they’ll crush

So I continue to struggle each day

Temptation calls at every whim

Trying to turn my strength to mere slush

Everyday those demons I slay

As I fight for life and limb

Nothing great comes easy in life
