FACESIf...If you looked at all the faces, ofall the people there ever were. What wouldyou see? Would you find anger,resentment,&loathing?For surely this is logical forthe way humans are. They fight till theirlast,& they fight to start. As their barefeet pad on this soil,& earth that has alreadyseen their nature. For soon it will fix itsmistake,& swallow them up.If you could see the facesof all the people there ever were, what would you see?Copyrightę2012 Amanda Williams. All rights reserved.
FAKE GIRLAs I look into those eyes that reflect tomuch. Those eyes seem hollow, yes so hollow.It is right this way, so perfect it sickensme so. They fit my monotone voice & that fakesmile. I built up this fake girl, brick bypainful brick. My hair is like barbed wire,it hurts when i look. My face is wrong, myeyes are wrong. This fake girl is dead.Copyright©2012 Amanda Williams.

I Envy the BirdsI envy the birds, who can fly away from hereto a better place where it is not too cold ortoo hot; where the sun shines, but not too muchas on a warm spring day; where you don't haveto think, just listen. I envy the birds.Copyright©2012 Amanda Williams. All rights reserved.
Once...Once it is done, there is no going back.Once you fall, you have fallen. You can getback up again, but that does not change that youfell. It happened, for we cannot change timeand space to our liking. So remember not to fallto begin with...Copyright©2012 Amanda Williams. All rights reserved.
FleetingAs you probably hear old people say,"Life is fleeting." To this point, Isay I am beyond my age, for I know thistoo well. I am only sixteen, but I was forcedto grow up with all the harassment andpain. No longer a kid, but only shame ofwhat I lost. The ignorance of a child is gone,replaced by wisdom beyond my time. I am nochild.Copyright©2012 Amanda Williams. All rights reserved.
