    Welcome to the 1st Annual LPA Poetry and Lyrics Competition!
    Brought to you by GiriosXeni and Uncle_Raj.
    September 2005


    Entry One
    I am standing in a streambed
    and I am up to my ankles in mud
    He is above me on the bank
    and he is laughing silently at me
    I would like to free myself on my own
    but I admit it--I am stuck.
    He reaches down to pull me out
    I nearly shy away
    but he grabs my wrist, pulls
    and I am with him on the bank.
    He still has my hands
    He is too close
    I can see the flecks of gold in his eyes
    He can see the freckles on my nose
    He's forgotten about his girlfriend
    I couldn't care less about my ex
    but when we move, it is apart
    and both of us let out the breath we held
    He has not kissed me yet
    but I know that he will soon
    and I am willing to wait.

    Entry Two
    Vyktor/Unknown Helsinki
    Come take these girls of pleasure
    Use them at your leisure
    Come, do what you will
    But leave when you’ve had your fill
    What has the world come to?
    I have no one to turn to
    Nothing in this world is pure
    But I think I’ve found the cure
    Come see these men to kill
    Shoot them until they lie still
    Go to them, Take their head
    Only then will you be fed
    What has the world come to?
    I have no one to turn to
    Nothing in this world is pure
    But I think I’ve found the cure
    Come stab this man on the bus
    No one there will make a fuss
    They will just let him die
    And boast they saw his girlfriend cry
    What has the world come to?
    I have no one to turn to
    Nothing in this world is pure
    But I think I’ve found the cure
    The World has fallen apart
    We need a fresh start
    One thing will start the fall
    Can you hear the H-bomb call?
    Corrupt government’s cause suffering
    They cause death but the minority cares
    We must stand together to overthrow them
    Will you join me?
    Will you join me?
    Evidently
    You don’t care as much as me
    Stand united
    So we can fight it
    Join me

    Entry Three
    Everything Reminds Me Of You
    A single star shines alone in the sky,
    I stare at it, as it glints in my eye,
    It reminds me of you, and I start to cry,
    I can't forget no matter how hard I try,
    I see your shape in every crowd,
    I see your face in every cloud,
    I hear your voice in every song,
    How could this have gone wrong?
    A young child starts to sing,
    I'm reminded of you, and so it brings,
    A tear to my eye, and I start to cry,
    I can't forget you, so why should I try?
    I see your face in every crowd,
    I see your smile in every cloud,
    I hear your voice in every song,
    I don't know where I belong,
    A bird flies through the clouds up above,
    It glides through the wind, a darling dove,
    I'm reminded of you, what can I do,
    You wont leave my side, always on my mind,
    I see your face in every crowd,
    I see your smile in every cloud,
    I hear your voice in every song,
    I'm not strong enough to go on,
    Everything reminds me of you,
    I can't let go, what can I do,
    I can't forget you, it seems,
    I can't wake up from my dreams

    Entry Four
    Fate
    Lost in the maze that I call life
    Scared & lonely with no easy way out
    And just when I think I have found the right path
    I find that this walk is the same as my last
    My eyes shut tight, I can't pretend
    That the light from the sun is the light at the end
    I take close steps to avoid the shade
    But the steps that I take I have already made
    And the light at the end begins to fade
    because when my eyes open I'm at the start again
    Lost in a world where freedom has gone
    Quiet & cold as I sing a wish for one
    And just when I think I have lost the wrong path
    I find that this walk is the same as my last
    My eyes shut tight, I can't pretend
    That the light from the sun is the light at the end
    I take close steps to avoid the shade
    But the steps that I take I have already made
    And the light at the end begins to fade
    because when my eyes open I'm at the start again
    Lost in a hope that left long ago
    stitched through a fate I'll never know
    And this time I won't even choose my path
    Because I won't let this walk be the same as my last
    I'm hoping to reflect on my chances
    To take on these questions with the right answers
    Because it's now that I feel everyday can be something new
    And it's now that I feel that the life I was promised is coming true
    My eyes shut tight, I can't pretend
    That the light from the sun is the light at the end
    I take close steps to avoid the shade
    But the steps that I take I have already made
    And the light at the end begins to fade
    because when my eyes open I'm at the start again

    Entry Five
    Sunday Morning
    You woke up on Sunday morning
    You broke it off last night?
    Are you trying not to cry in your sleep?
    Because it seems like all we do is fight
    The day that answered the year
    It is a waste of time for us to say
    It was the worst of it all
    Because it feels like you have sold me today
    I remember the day
    You gave up on me
    Where in the hell did we go wrong?
    I have fallen to this new world
    I am a one-man-army
    Fighting to belong
    Fighting to belong
    I woke up on Sunday morning
    Waiting for this town to collapse
    This hangover is killing me
    Or at least it feels like the past
    The day that answered the year
    It’s a waste of time for us to say
    It was the worst of it all
    Because it feels like you have sold me today
    And all your tears can not stop this pain
    The desolation that I am going through
    And all of your little stories that make you go insane
    Please erase my thoughts of you.
    We woke up on Sunday morning
    Confused to find where the hell we are
    Are we trying not to cry in our sleep?
    The day that answered the year
    Tore us apart!

    Entry Six
    The Tree Of Thomas
    The faithful are foolish to believe
    To embrace a breath, a wisp of wind
    This they fancy they can achieve
    To fathom a phantom is not pretend

    In the rain and in the darkness, the shovel shakes in hand
    As the earth buries the dead, beneath lies my forgotten friend

    They whisper to yonder wonderer
    They sway souls with sly words
    A shackled demon seduces his caller
    While never seen, only heard his words

    Never does it rest, my jaded mind’s throbbing ache
    While now the eyes of corruption, are thus awake

    An angel bows low in disgrace
    A failure, a dithering soul set adrift
    The angle prays, hands cover face
    But his cries are engulfed in the rift

    Reciting the old family prayer, yet my faith is torn asunder
    Resisting laughter, the whisper to me sounds of thunder

    The death of rectitude, the requiem plays
    While demons dance, the angle vanishes
    Darkness, my friend, has come to stay
    On Golgotha, he does as he wishes

    Under the earth inside the coffin, I lie dead and faithless
    With my shovel in hand, I stand beside the tree of Thomas

    Entry Seven
    All I Ever Wanted
    This was the last day
    Enough of the constant,
    Hypocritical,
    Nonsensical,
    Words and lies
    Of which she had
    An endless supply,
    Wash it all away.
    Stand up
    And march to death
    My final words on the wall,
    I write
    A weeping plea
    In the dark of night
    Screams of forgiveness,
    Of truth (or lies?)
    I take these shadows
    And rip it apart
    Like the heart that she tore
    The irregular beating stops
    Never restored.
    And so the heart died.
    The body died.
    The soul died.
    I had died.
    But before I lay down to rest,
    I lay the rest to truth
    But the truth was lie.
    Fiction spun by her goddess
    For in all truth
    There lack words to express.
    Only words of lies.
    The truth is always greater
    Than the words used to describe.
    Scribbled and rough
    I write my grave
    A dark deep hole
    By which was my right
    That heaven gave.
    The last flow of blood
    Before my veins give way
    Supplying the ink
    Of which I write today
    But before it dries
    A dark crusted maroon
    Revisions I'll make
    Not a moment too soon.
    My life was revision
    My life without vision
    And the last draft
    Written with
    A bitter laugh
    As I finish
    And fall
    With the sweet joy
    Of leaving it all.
    And as I dimmed,
    My light fading through
    All I ever wanted
    Was to be with you.

    Entry Eight
    Right From My Chest
    And after the first five days, I've had of loving you,
    I've learned that nothing I can do, will make you happy,
    'Cause you and me don't go together, I've learned that now and it burns,
    Like your cigarette; so slowly, apologies are killers words,
    And you can't stop the sentences, gliding over you,
    Because you love the feel of them, and they love you,
    Could I hold it against you; the way that you left me?
    You should have left with no goodbye; you caused a big scene.
    You stole my lungs right from my chest,
    Who are you trying to impress?
    You stole my heart right from my chest,
    As I was lying in my casket,
    Was lying in my casket, yeah.
    My last words roll over you like, your silk nightgown,
    It slides off and hits the floor, is that your reply?
    While I'm lying here under this dirt, you're probably dancing all alone,
    And that's the thing that annoys me; you could have had me to hold,
    Now I'm trying to break free, to dig myself back up,
    One thing is it's hard to breath, and you said that you loved me,
    Could I hold it against you; the way you turned on me?
    Buried in this casket; I bet you couldn't dig six feet.
    You stole my lungs right from my chest,
    Who are you trying to impress?
    You stole my heart right from my chest,
    As I was lying in my casket,
    Was lying in my casket, yeah.
    I was meant to be six feet under, but you could only dig two feet,
    So I could fight my way out, but I'm feeling pretty weak,
    I was meant to be six feet under, but you could only dig two feet,
    So I could fight my way out, if I wasn't feeling so weak...
    You stole my lungs right from my chest,
    Who are you trying to impress?
    You stole my heart right from my chest,
    As I was lying in my casket,
    Was lying in my casket, yeah.

    Entry Nine
    The Insanity Of Hope
    A trickle of hope shivers somewhere amongst the sea of time,
    It spreads like the mass murder, the blood spilling and all the crime.
    It claims lives like the haughty insects that drown themselves in their
    reflections,
    The lies beneath a thin film of truth, dressed with hope, this deceiving,
    sufficient.
    The caressing eyes of a lover tells a tale of the future to spend in mirth,
    The sparkle of the moonlit night covers, with a gleaming cool quilt, the earth.
    And though all may seem merry like the much forsaken, yet awaited circus show,
    It’s all bound to be grasped by feeble dying hope, it’s fortuned to go.
    The colors of the future and the magic of your timidity, the elixir of my
    existence,
    The trauma of waiting for the lasting long final moments after an era of weak
    sustenance,
    Your bold upfront and relieving sting to carry on forever and never to abide by
    disbelief,
    This is it that I need to push hope, forcing it to come alive, after slumberous
    sleep.
    The ripples and the tides, the quakes of misfortunes and regret that comes
    alive,
    The loneliness, this nausea, the torture of knowing that you have to survive,
    The pressure, the pain, the loved ones to sacrifice your truthful judgments for,
    like before,
    The gratitude towards the poor who taught you life, the burden to thank the one
    who bore,
    The fruits of the trees, and the crippled crumpled leaves,
    All teach me that hope, if daring and faithful enough, never deceives.
    The stupidity sublime and innocent, immature and childish,
    The craving for a last chance before the final death wish,
    The hope that brings and drags you to believe that you are immortal,
    Life’s limited as the void vacuum within a treasured souvenir bottle.
    The hope lingers about your thoughts in theory, for practically it doesn’t
    exist,
    For one can’t count all the stars in the sky and all the blood, waiting to flow,
    within your wrist.

    Entry 10
    Expectations
    Pressure is rapidly changing my life
    I seem to be working all day and all night
    Never getting a break
    No room for mistakes
    And yet you seem to deenounce every move I make

    You bitch and whine at me all the time
    Have I committed a crime for being alive?
    Have I said something wrong? Have I done something bad?
    You keep telling me I've blown all the chances I had

    And now rage seems to be building inside
    And when I close my eyes
    I'm paralyzed inside
    Flashbacks of what you've put into my mind
    Makes me wanna break out of this cage inside

    Expectations
    Are driving me insane
    No matter what I say
    Its not good enough
    I will not
    Keep working away
    Into an early grave
    Because it's what you want

    This constant mindfucking is driving me insane
    The way you come at me is like I don't feel pain
    I don't know what you want,I'm only trying my best
    Don't shout at me for gettin' an F on a test
    Is a grade really enough to hault all your love
    And give me a shove towards suicidle thoughts?

    And after all these years of shedding tears
    Conquering fears and shifting gears
    Everything's still not right,well tonight is the night
    That I decide what do do with my life

    No more objections to my progressions
    This shit's enhancing my agression
    No more lessons on knowledge congestions
    No obsessions on living to succeed

    Expectations
    Are driving me insane
    No matter what I say
    Its not good enough
    I will not
    Keep working away
    Into an early grave
    Because it's what you want

    The stars in the dark night sky
    They mezmerize
    They shine in my eye
    Like a pure diamond
    I wanna reach for these stars
    Do what I want
    Reach for the stars
    Do what I want

    Expectations
    Are driving me insane
    No matter what I say
    Its not good enough
    I will not
    Keep working away
    Into an early grave
    Because it's what you want

    Expectations
    Are driving me insane
    No matter what I say
    Its not good enough
    I will not
    Keep working away
    Into an early grave
    Because it's what you want

    And if I still fail,who really cares?
    We all know how life is unfair
    But I will keep on trying,never dying inside
    Because atleast I tried
    And that's something you can never take away from me
    You'll never break me


    Entry Eleven
    Punish The Immortal
    Fireballs rained from the sky,
    As panic stricken people pass me by,
    But I stand still amongst the rush,
    I know very well my time should be up.
    But I do not fear death,
    For it has searched for me for years,
    And I have escaped its clutches,
    Through the death of those I held dear.
    I unlocked the secret to immortality,
    But in doing so I sealed my death,
    In bloodshed I receive life,
    But also draw nearer to my death.
    And as the world around me,
    Slowly breaks apart,
    And my fellow men around me,
    Fall deep past the earth’s crust.
    I don’t see death or pain,
    Only wasted blood,
    My need for life has overtaken,
    All my emotions, it is my lust.
    “Death you cannot have me!”
    I scream courageously into the sky,
    But in truth I am a coward,
    I don’t have the courage to die.
    Lightning fills the sky,
    As the earth tears apart,
    And the stench of blood fills the air,
    “What a feast,” you sneer in lust.
    But in what seemed like the final hours,
    Of the Earth and of its men.
    I am not destroyed,
    My immortality has won again.
    “See, you can not kill me!”
    I yell into the sky,
    But the world has collapsed around me,
    And I am left to never die.
    And I finally see the flaw in my plan,
    I’m trapped in a punishment worse than death,
    Forced to live forever,
    In seclusion, loneliness.
    In the distance I see a vision,
    Of a woman I once knew,
    It is an image of my wife,
    And in a flood my emotions break through.
    And though her face smiles,
    In her eyes I see the pain,
    And the resentment she holds towards me,
    Why would she feel this way?
    And as I look around me,
    I see with new eyes,
    And I weep aloud in sorrow,
    For all the people that had died.
    I see the pain my greed has caused,
    I now know the price was too high,
    But though I know the secret to immortality,
    The past I cannot defy.
    Then in the rubble I see my daughter,
    And I try to embrace her in my arms,
    But she passes straight through me,
    I had also killed her without qualm.
    But what man can stand such pain,
    The knowledge you killed all you held dear,
    That you alone destroyed the world,
    And those who loved you, made them fear.
    No man can live through that,
    But I am no longer man,
    And though I feel the pain,
    God has removed death from his plan.
    So for eternity I’ll cry myself to sleep.
    Hoping one day I won’t wake up.
    Maybe I deserved to be punished.
    Is asking for forgiveness just too much?

    Entry Twelve
    Memories
    She’s running again
    She doesn’t want to see him
    Rotting
    She’s running again
    From the memories
    She remembers his eyes
    Chocolate brown starred with grey
    She remembers his voice
    A smooth, liquid baritone
    But that is all she has
    Memories
    They may have seemed like polar opposites
    Argued like it was an apocalypse
    But they fit each other perfectly
    She remembers his hands
    Strumming his guitar
    Stroking her hair
    She remembers
    Memories
    He was always the vocal one
    Wore his emotions on his sleeve
    Aware that he was always the one to get hurt
    She remembers his features
    Beautiful, she used to call him
    She remembers his hair
    Dark, always gelled back
    But soft like finely spun silk
    But that is all she has
    Memories
    She knew that she loved him
    But didn’t know how much
    She knew that he loved her
    Enough for them both
    Enough to scare her off
    She didn’t know what to do
    When he said those words
    She wasn’t ready
    And he was willing to wait
    But she sensed that she’d hurt him
    Bruised his fragile heart
    The heart that now beats no more
    She remembers his kisses
    Little Eskimo nose kisses
    Everlasting kisses
    Each one was magical
    But the magic is gone
    She remembers his gifts
    Beautiful displays of eternal love
    Like the time he had filled her entire flat with rose petals
    The time he gave her the Claddagh ring, identical to the one he wore
    The one that was buried with him
    But that is all she has
    Memories
    She took a break for a while
    From him and his enchantments
    So that she could think about what she was getting into
    Before she dove in too deep
    She knew that he’d be waiting for her
    Not matter what
    They had made a promise
    Till death do they part
    Till Death
    She remembers his spirit
    Pure magic, pure love
    There was fear, of a life without love
    Of love unrequited
    A love that she was ready to give him
    She remembers his habits
    The tendency to pick up a cigarette when life got tough
    Although he tried to stop
    The tendency to drive too fast on the freeway
    When no one was around
    She remembers
    Memories
    She remembers his inspiration
    The musical urge he got when she was around
    Or when they had just made love
    The way he would look at her while writing a song
    A mixture of Awe and Love
    But that is all she can do
    Remember
    She was packing to return when she got the call
    An accident, it was said
    He was driving too fast on a dark night
    One of his habits
    Someone else came up
    He never saw it coming
    She remembers his music
    Haunting melodies about life and love
    And everything in between
    Music that rings in the corners
    Music that makes you remember
    The good times
    Memories

    Entry Thirteen
    Thank You
    A line comes between us
    Through the burning memories you brought forth,
    Reminding me of the pictures you’d shown me earlier...
    Though I could do nothing but breathe a simple plea,
    Asking you to let me show you the shadows you cast today,
    I know that I’ll remain unheard
    Until the end has found its place with you.
    I cannot fathom this merciless pain
    You’ve brought upon me, so let it rot in me,
    And I’ll cry and I’ll weep and I’ll beg and I’ll plead
    For you to realize your mistake…
    You’re getting closer…
    And yet I’m counting the time I have left to borrow,
    Counting the voids I’ve used in sorrow.
    A line comes between us,
    And it's the same one we saw yesterday.
    But within it, a thinning thread of empathy
    Now darkens with each passing day,
    Composed and drawn from a self inflicted hatred,
    The same hatred you seemed to harbor with words…
    So light the sky with your palms
    And show the world the lacerations of truth;
    The same truth you’ve carved into your skin,
    For the broken glass you create tomorrow
    Will twist and turn and begin to burn…
    It must dig deeper to find what’s missing;
    To let this birth of agony trickle through, and show you,
    The withering rose you crushed again.
    A line comes between us;
    Another torn canvas has proclaimed your arrival,
    And on it are the colors that match the way I feel.
    I'm bound by the chains you’ve set upon me,
    So I’ll stay here, listlessly, to watch you fall from grace;
    To watch you burn the things I need to keep me here, alive…
    Here I am- I have to create another lie for you,
    But I can't let it wash me away; I'm still standing here,
    Waiting and wishing and wanting and falling…
    Yet I’ve shown you my reflection
    And it hasn’t wavered from your memory,
    But it will, soon; you’ve marred the surface
    With marks of desperation,
    And I can feel them through your gaze,
    Because it’s all I have left to feel from you.
    A line comes between us,
    And now, the dirt has spread across my hands;
    It’s infiltrating, and thus I’ve become immune
    Because it belongs to you.
    Your presence has remained impure;
    Its essence has dawned upon me once again,
    And I’m not sure I’ll ever leave this place again,
    Because I’m tired and cold and condemned and alone…
    But you seem content, so I’ll leave you be,
    You’ve achieved a peace through simplicity-
    And though this pain is hardly simple,
    I cannot deny what you’ll take anyway.
    A line comes between us,
    And maybe, someday, when you carve a final meaning,
    I will finally understand
    What you wanted me to learn from you.
    Unbeknownst to yourself, you’ll have to leave me…
    Walk away; I’ll watch you, you don’t have to worry,
    But please leave knowing that I’ll always love you.
    Though I'm sorry for you, I can't make you help me;
    These bindings have left my sighs strangled
    And I’m tangled, and I’m torn, but I’m trying…to let go, for you…
    Alas, your sympathy doesn't linger here anymore,
    But I’ll remember you; you’ve left me a gift,
    And I’ll carry it forever, and I’ll be burdened ever after,
    Because you are the line that I cannot erase…
    To save myself.

    Entry Fourteen
    The Innocent Abandoned
    Day One, The Beginning Of The End
    It was a day like every other
    Until the moment that I turned on the TV
    The Breaking News
    And then I heard
    "The comet’s heading towards the Earth”
    "As the astronomers predict it’s gonna be about a week
    Before it reaches the critical point, the point of no return"
    And I just fell there on the couch
    What the hell is she talking about?
    They’ll destroy it just tonight
    I heard that they can do it, right?
    Oh fuck I remembered something
    Just the other day my friend asked me
    What was it that I would like to witness in my lifetime
    I said the end of the world
    There’s nothing I would like more
    Than to be among the last that will ever walk the solid ground
    Well guess what fucker?
    Your wish is coming true
    The next time better chose your wishes
    Yeah, right, like there will be a next time…
    Day Two, The Denial
    Oh, man I had a weirdest dream last night
    About the end of the world
    About how we’re all gonna die
    I slowly got up from the bed
    And then I turned on the TV
    A fucking warning on the screen
    It wasn’t a nightmare, it wasn’t a dream
    It is as real as it can be
    Oh I can’t watch
    Just make it stop
    And then my father calls me down
    I saw his face and the mother’s and the brother’s too
    They didn’t know what they should do
    They tried to calm me down
    I said I was ok
    I understand
    There is no need to panic
    And then my mother broke in tears
    I knew exactly all her fears
    "I love you all ", I said and left
    I don’t have any time to waste
    Start the car and drive real far
    I need to think about my life
    Is this the end?
    The very end
    Oh God can you hear me up there
    Got some secrets you would share?
    Is it the end that you prepare?
    Well I’ve got something I would share with you today
    But I don’t dare
    Day Three, The Anarchy
    The life is different
    The schools are closed
    People don’t go to work anymore
    Kids are no longer playing on the streets
    Now it’s all about living in fear
    They report more suicides than ever
    Every second in the state like this lasts forever
    And forever isn’t long enough
    When you know
    In a couple of days you’ll be dead and gone
    It’s just a matter of time now
    When some idiot with a shotgun
    Will go out on the streets and start
    Breaking into the stores, stealing, killing
    And the anarchy will be unleashed
    The trail of death will be clear to see on the streets
    The apprehension grows
    I sit inside my room alone
    Thinking about the things I’ve said and done
    Regretting for those that I never have
    Day Four, The Love
    I heard their words
    They said they’ve tried
    But they cannot stop it, never mind
    I don’t know why
    This happens now
    Guess it was meant to be
    It can’t be stopped
    But where is she?
    It thought of that
    Last night while I was lying wide awake all night
    Is she all right
    How does she feel about all this
    I wish she knew just what I feel for her
    Well I’m gonna find her now
    I’ve got nothing to lose now
    I’m gonna tell her what I feel now
    I’m stronger than ever now
    How pathetic
    How ironic
    I’m just a weakling and I know it
    Scrap that
    I’m gonna change that
    If nothing more then for a couple of days we have left
    We’re gonna spend it together hand in hand
    I’m gonna find the love of my life
    I’m gonna have the time of my life
    Day Five, The Serenity
    The city’s never been so cold
    The military now has the control
    The chosen ones are being taken away
    Into the shelters underground
    Taken, but not necessarily saved
    Taken, but probably not saved
    And they seem to know it
    Cause who knows what it will be like
    Who knows if anything will remain
    Why could possibly tell the power of the strike
    Maybe our planet will become just a stain
    A stain in the universe
    Vast
    Black
    Hollow
    Cold
    A stain that no one will ever notice
    A history flushed down the river
    The river of destruction that flows into the abyss
    They can run and they can hide
    But I will keep my dignity
    And remain where I am
    I won’t move from this spot
    Cause I’m not afraid
    Yeah, I’m not afraid to die
    Day Six, The Anxiety
    You may laugh at me
    But this is just how it feels
    The day before your prom
    The day before your wedding
    The day before anything that matters
    Now it’s all about waiting
    Anticipating
    The big luminous ball can be seen it the sky already
    It lit up the whole sky last night
    As if it was a day
    I couldn’t sleep again
    I bet no one could
    I’m not afraid but I have some vague awkward feeling
    Coming over me
    Cause I know this isn’t right
    I had no chance to live my life
    And it makes me sad from time to time
    But it can’t get me down now
    Like it would do couple of days ago
    Cause now there is something more that I know
    This is one thing I won’t go through alone
    Tomorrow is the day
    And I’ll go to sleep now
    One last night I will dream my dreams
    My sweet dreams
    And they better be nice
    Day Seven, The Finality
    The day has come
    We all stare at the sky
    Some are looking for salvation
    Some just wait to die
    The thunder is so much louder
    It sounds so surreal
    The sky is dark orange
    It reminds me of a sunset I watched last year
    So beautiful
    The rain is starting to fall
    It will wash the tears down my face
    As the scenery around me gets more and more chaotic
    The little meteor rocks are falling from the sky now
    The fire balls
    Just like in some Hollywood movie
    But this is not a movie
    And we’re not the actors
    The heat is real this time
    The fire and the water
    Came together again
    Combined in one
    The same way like when everything began
    And the people just fall down
    One by one
    The innocent ones
    The women, the children
    We’re all the same in the eyes of death
    And this is just the beginning
    The grand end is still to come
    And I am the witness
    And you are the witness
    It doesn’t get more beautiful that this
    The world dies only once
    And we will see it with our very own two eyes
    We’re the happy
    We’re the doomed
    We’re the lucky
    We’re the sorrowful
    We’re the alive
    We’re the dead
    We’re the innocent abandoned

    Entry Fifteen
    Why can't anybody find me?
    Why can't anybody help me?
    Why I have brought this upon me?
    Maybe I gave in untimely.
    Life is such a pain for words
    Words are such a pain to say now.
    I cannot take the anguish
    For once, may I not turn around?
    Sometimes life takes its turns
    Knocks you up and down on its own time
    Maybe I'll find a way now
    But I have crossed this long line
    Why can't anybody find me?
    Why won't anybody help me?
    Why I have brought this upon me?
    I don't know, I gave in untimely.
    I know this pain is too much to take.
    I know the nice life is too far away.
    I know I've made all the mistakes.
    But now I know, I never can change.
    It's too soon to change it all.
    It's too late to say I was wrong.
    I crossed the line, just too quickly
    I gave it all in so untimely
    Is anybody waiting for me?
    Is anybody walking towards me?
    Is anybody trying to find me?
    Is anybody wanting to help me?
    The problem is I just do not know.
    She came along, I couldn't say no.
    It's too late to say I was wrong.
    It's too soon to change it all.
    Baby, won't you try to find me?

    - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

    These are all of the poems and/or lyrics that have been submitted. As you all know, you were given a school week, or 5 days, to submit your poem/lyrics. If you are looking over this thread, and you were planning on sending a poem or some lyrics, it is too late now.

    As shown above, the poems/lyrics are all numbered. The reason for this is to make voting easier, as well as making counting votes easier. These poems are not in any specific order, mind you.

    Anyway, we’ve set some ground rules so that this competition is fair. Here they are:

    1. No voting for your own work. I strongly advise you not to if you want this to be a fair game. Be a good sport.
    2. Please post the number of the poem you are voting for. Don’t say, “Oh, I want the one with “these lyrics” in it.” It makes my life easier.
    3. You may only vote once. Keep in mind that you may not change your choice after you posted your selection. You have a good 7 days to make up your mind.
    4. Do not make any comments that go against someone else’s work. Just vote and keep any negative comments to yourself.
    5. Only post if you are making a vote, not if you are just going to make a comment and say, “Ooh, I like that one.”

    So, that’s about it as far as rules go. You have 7 days to vote. This thread will be closed and then I shall count up the scores. I will make a new post containing the final results. The top 3 winners shall receive:

    1st place: A free album of your choice, or 13 different songs of your choice; and a free audio recording of your submission from Uncle_Raj himself!

    2nd place: 4 songs from any artist(s) of your choice.

    3rd place: 1 song from any artist of your choice.

    But the real prize in all of this is knowing that your poem was appreciated more than others.

    Good luck to all of you! Start voting!
