Lauren B's blog
Sink or swim?
Cry or hear heavens beautiful hymn?
Rolling in comes the wave.
So will you be brave?
Will your heart find that name to cherish and engrave?
Don’t give doubt the light of day.
Don’t think twice if love floats your way.
Smile at the little moments even if they seem cliché.
The first kiss runs through my mind on reply.
I found you, now I’m holding on
Holding on to you till the sun peaks up at dawn.
I don’t want you to ever be gone.
I’m going to dive right in.
Loving you makes me grin.
You have stunning eyes and the softest skin.
I will always be here with you till the end.
You’re not only my soul mate but also my best friend.
I can’t believe this isn’t a dream, this is real not pretend.
I’m choosing to go out on a whim.
I am going to swim,
Loving you has made me brave.
My heart chose your name to engrave.
What do I stand for?
A world that someday will cease fire in every war.
Maintain a young mind and curiosity to explore.
Lending a hand to the neighbor’s next store.
That special love to fall for.
Seeing that smile that no matter what you will always adore.
Dreams in the stars above to shoot for,
And hopes to go for.
I don’t question what I stand for anymore.
What do you stand for?
Life is really about wishing on shooting stars.
Your scars make you who you are.
Drop a beat or strum some chords on your guitar, we all just want to go far.
Take time to appreciate the little things,
If you close your eyes and listen you can hear the song the world sings.
If you have faith you can spread your wings.
Open your eyes and see the opportunities ever door you open brings.
What does it mean to come alive?
I’ll tell you, it’s when love arrives.
When it appears its unexpected.
Something that should always be respected.
If it’s real it can always be detected.
There is nothing as life changing as two souls being connected.
Nothing is so magical as having a heart to always keep protected
What does it mean to embrace joy?
I’ll tell you its always having that stunning smile to glance at and enjoy.
There is nothing like happiness to always keep your heart warm.
There is something to say about that special person cuddling with you during a storm.
A soul mate is a beautiful, precious life form.
What does it mean to have all your wishes come true?
You have a pep to your step, and love that the sky is blue.
You feel free, you spread your wings and you flew.
There is nothing that you can’t make it through.
You wonder if you are asleep, is it a dream? When will you come to?
Your beating heart grew.
You made it far and there is nothing you would redo.
Feeling like I’m reaching out to a wall, left here pouting.
But you haven’t seen the love I see in her eyes.
You take your aim
Judge for not being male and female, but isn’t love all the same?
To you it’s not so we are forced to play your game.
You wont shoot me down.
You may cause frowns,
But someday she will get her day in a wedding gown.
No mater what you say or do she is my princess and she will wear the crown.
You are the one who will fall.
Maybe someday you will understand what it means to love all.
I will tell her I love you proudly and stand tall.
When you can accept this, give us a call
Where does the time go?
5 years ago you were John Doe, now you’re my everything and I want to tell you so.
Before you I thought happily ever afters were a joke.
My views have changed once my final wall broke.
I want to hold you hand.
Every moment together makes our love expand.
I get lost in your eyes.
They are as beautiful as the angels that soar way up in the skies.
Your love and trust truly is the best prize.
You have the most stunning smile.
A creative mind and a unique artist style,
That blush that appears every once in awhile,
These are just a few of the little things that make me want to someday see you walk down the aisle.
I want to hold you close.
Let you know you are the one I love the most.
No matter what we may endeavor
Just a sad melting candle. Read more »
I am a fighter.
Not a kicking, screaming, biter,
But one who will never give up even when others lose faith or tell me to shut up.
I won’t run away, in fact if it’s possible I will grasp life’s hand even tighter.
I promise to do the best that I can to make the load on other people’s backs lighter.
Expect the unexpected.
The sly snake of unfortunate events will not go undetected.
Good always win, evil is not protected.
I have been kicked to the dirt,
Faced my fair share of hurt.
This has molded me to be a strong fighter.
Not a kicking, screaming, biter.
But one who will not give up.
One who ignores the anger from shouting “ just shut up”.
If humanly possible I grasp life’s hand even tighter.
The soul desires to make other peoples burden lighter.
So what are you?
Are you a fighter?
Are you a kicking, screaming biter?
Whichever you are I encourage you to grasp life’s hand tighter.
Make it a goal to make someone else weight on their shoulders lighter.
Time slows down.
No room in this moment for a frown.
The passionate love that we feel for eachother is what keeps us from being held down.
We dance together, a king with his princess in Cinderlla's gown.
Together we rise above all hate wearing postivities crown.
People wish for this life nightly.
Never let a moment pass by, holding on to you tightly.
Looking into eachothers eyes they know their vows were not taken lightly.
Always there to support eachother, fight for eachothers rights righteously.
My dearest Father Time this is just a glance,
one special dance.
A special mooment that can not be inhanced.
Soak in the joy as the merry souls prance.
This is a view through the eyes of a patient lovers stance.
Waiting for that special someone to take a chance.
Who shall take this dance?
I would give up my best day,
To help those whose only hope is to pray.
Those unlucky ones who only stare at skies of gray.
Can’t forget those bills everyone’s struggling to pay.
Ya, I would give up my best day
To make all the pain go away.
Just because I am not you
And haven’t lived the same experiences you’ve been through
Doesn’t mean that there is nothing I can do.
Just end up building prevention.
What we need is an open book of new inventions.
I would give up my best day to dry those tears.
Though I cant make up for those past years.
There is no need to waste time validating fears.
Walking, talking in the wind.
Isn’t this how the journey always begins?
It only starts to mean something when people start listening.
The first few miles are the hardest,
The storm does pass,
Who will go the farthest?
The first smile is always the hardest.
Not going to give up, I will see this through.
It is a task that I am determined to do.
I would give up my best day.
To eliminate skies clouded gray.
No more struggling with annoying bills to pay.
Washing the tears away.
Things will go our way.
The moon seems brighter when the stars come out
Lying on the lawn thinking to my self what’s life all about?
Our economy struggling, Obama and the bail out.
Younger generations, lost hope, their minds full of doubt.
The worlds a funny place.
There are some awesome people, and some you might call a basket case.
Time never slows down, speeding around at a fast pace.
Its up to each and every one of us to stare a fate in the face.
Give 100%, and jump in to the race.
So what you may get some scratches and some bruises,
But you’re putting yourself out there while others spit out their excuses.
Living the life that nobody but you chooses.
The haters are the only team that looses.
Some will encourage your dreams; others tell you that you’ll never make it.
Got to fully commit
Be ready to block those swinging ready to hit,
Your real friends will be there lickety split.
No place to hide anymore.
Learn to not count too much on others so there are less lies to fall for.
Reality is like a great war.
Some faith is the only thing that we can ask for.
The stars are what we shoot to explore.
Find something important to stand for.
When there is lack of support, questioning what all the hard work for?
Pointless to worry about the fast and what happen before, Read more »
I was never given a guide to survive.
All I know is to never lose my pride
and spread my smile wide.
Ignoring the many times people lied.
I'm just along for lifes rollar coaster ride.
Everyone's is quick to come and go.
Never sticking around,
the excuses line themselves up in a row.
I wish this wasn't so,
but I won't let reality hold me back from the places I want to go.
My life is like a garden,
waiting for the moment to flourish and grow.
She feels lost and alone.
All She wants is a stable home.
Instead she got to watch he rmother deteriorate to the bone.
Cocain caused her hear to feel a never ending pain.
Memories arethe only thing keep her sane..
Watch as it rains.
Swallowing up the tears, but never eliminateing the fears.
Gradually losing hope,
Finding it more difficult to cope.
Why did she have to lose so many loved ones to dope?
She’s just gone, dead,
her hearts no longer beating red.
When everything went wrong you stayed strong.
You were her added piece to the puzzle,
what made each day for her no longer a struggle.
You saw something in her.
When she tried to swim, you were the only one
who helped her stay afloat.
You stopped the waves from crashing.
Together the two of you were a steady boat.
And then you were gone.
She was left alone, closed eyes, just trying to hold on hope.
She almost instantly lost sight,
to many long restless nights.
Her happy soul was slowly sinking
appearing to be lost in a constant daydream.
Stuck in the thoughts of the past,
What could have been?
What should have been?
What once seemed perfect turned into a circus.
Drag on the pipe,
Her facial expressions are wiped away.
No one offers anything to say.
Struggling to pay rent,
Countless minutes spent wishing to get swiped away by the current.
Tears flowing like a river outside.
Arms spread wide, asking why?
Crawls deeper within
No longer holding the desire to win or feel the rain on her skin.
Just going to hide away till the sun sets at the end of the day.
Doesn’t even hold the energy to pray.
Eyes closed, her soul doesn’t know which way to go.
It starts to snow,
Angles fly down taking her to the place she wants to go.
She was never willing to let you go.
Find a piece of mind
That’s all I want, some time to
Release these cobwebs that got me in a bind.
I’ve got to move forward, craving success.
Trying to meet everyone’s request,
Their weight is a burden on my shoulders, adding stress.
I’m just turning into a complete mess.
Nonetheless I will find a way to progress.
What the hell am I waiting for?
Every day is a battle, but I can conquer this war.
You call me a whore, I’ll just smile and ignore,
walk out the front door.
I’ve got life to explore, when all you got is the liquor store.
I want to be so much more.
Spread my wings and soar, enjoy being me,
just take the time to enjoy the sea shore,
or beat my lousy bowling score.
Beginnings and endings there is no use in pretending
That things will go as intended.
But there is hope and eventually you develop a way to cope.
Find something worth defending.
However, watch the words that come out of your mouth
because you never know who you may offending.
I Move To My Own Beat
Music is the one thing that can express anything and everything no matter where you are, or who you are. It brings out creativity making each artist shine bright like a superstar. There are no limitations, anyone can grasp it and go far. Character, the one concept of our unique individuality that can be captured in a snap of a Polaroid or a flowing swipe of a black ballpoint pen across a crisp white page. As time passes it turns yellow from age. What if you were to add instrumentation and determination to the mix? Now you are left with a story, a moment that could be representing failure or glory, either way it doesn’t need to be fixed. Music is my refuge. The impact it’s had on my life has been huge.
Music is a life changing form of art. It should be taken seriously and held close to your heart. How can something so universal and common be life changing? Well, it taught me that my life doesn’t need rearranging. The only aspects of me that anyone will be exchanging are smiles and new knowledge when I go to college.
I hit the Rooftop, pause for a moment all time stops, and hold my head to the sky, closed eyes, embracing the raindrops. Temporarily escaping the world we live in that moves non stop. When I plug into my iPod each syllable flows out and I think to myself, what I am all about?
Quickly, let’s do some brainstorming. Read more »
Searching for that place
where I will no longer be looked at as an alien
from outer space.
I keep running, holding a steady pace,
vowing to myself
“I won’ let the negative words make me feel disgrace."
Every time I look at your face I want to escape to another place.
Bad luck always has a way of finding me.
Cobwebs from the past are binding me.
Tears from the pain, flowing they are blinding me.
Starting each day with a smile,
accepting I will be stuck in this nightmare awhile.
The thoughts and emotions pile up.
Why is the world we live in so corrupt?
Frustration is boiling up.
I’m like a volcano, eventually the inevitable will happen.
I will erupt.
I’m locked up in this cage
slowly building up rage.
To release this anger I hit the stage.
I hear the warnings
I’m in the rap game.
Many don’t understand,
let me explain
I’m just like you,
human, I do feel pain.
Music is an art, got to take it to heart, Read more »
