I never lived because I lacked love
I never breathed because I lacked air
I never ate because I lacked food
I never dreamt because I lacked sleep
I never sheltered because I lacked rain
I just lived because there was life
I just breathed because oxygen existed
I just ate because hunger had to be quenched
I just dreamt because my mind wouldn’t be empty
I just sheltered because dry clothes were much warmer
So when I die
Bury me with a love song
My favorite love song
Because you loved my life

I never loved because I was lonely
I never walked because I lacked feet
I never smelled because I lacked nostrils
I never spoke because I lacked lips
I never heard because I lacked ears
I just loved because there was love
I just walked because my path led me here
I just smelled because my nose knew scents
I just spoke because my mouth wouldn’t be silent
I just heard because the noise was everywhere
So when I die
Bury me with a love song
My favorite love song
Because you loved my life

I never feared because I was afraid
I never thought because I was thinking
I never sang because music played
I never climbed because there was no mountain
I never laughed because there was no joke
I just feared because I knew bravery
I just thought because memories stayed
I just sang because songs caressed my heart
I just climbed because I understood victory
I just laughed because I had your humor
So when I die
Bury me with a love song
My favorite love song
Because you loved my life
As I too loved yours
Bury me with a love song
An Abstract love song

For the lost souls at war
Each life lost without cause
Fear that led to hatred
Conflicts of the mind
We shall congregate
So they are not forgotten
Those that died before birth
Forced out of their mother’s womb
Lived less than they should have
A capital on its death bed
Rings of suffocation
Highways leading to mistakes
We shall congregate
So they live in our memories
Those unfairly plucked from society
Homelessness that wrecked them
Loneliness of a dimmed mind
Cold hardened cement
Shivers of malaria destroying hope
A city on a continuos spiral
Premature living to the end
We shall congregate
For everyone who fails from education
Led to believe function is in the mind
Those that took their life away
Feeling failures at life
Lost in the whirlwind of expectations
Determined fate before dreams
All lives ended too soon
For society that gains without giving
Yearnings only for acceptance
We shall congregate
For each heart that was hurt
Mothers that lost sons, daughters
Husbands that lost wives
Wives that lost husbands
Sisters that lost brothers
Brothers that lost sisters
Those that felt senselessly alone
We shall congregate
Light our white candles in hand
Say a prayer for each one gone
We shall congregate
Like soldiers at a 21 gun salute



You keep checking in the mirror
Nose twitching in disappointment
Lips curled as if about to tear up
You see only the surface of beauty
Criticizing your true self
Everything about you is gorgeous
Your voice sing songs in the night
Scratching away deserts of sorrow
You hate how your chest drops
You see not what I see
But you’re beautiful

You keep avoiding the mirror
Eyes tightly shut in shame
You feel less of a magnificent creature
Hiding behind veils of bulky hair
Swiftly walking past eyes that stare
Everything about you is wonderful
Those eyes I could drown in forever
Arms I yearn to be in forever
You don’t want me to look at you
But you’re beautiful

You say I’m beautiful?

Yes, Beautiful in every sense
