    Regret is a situation I want to endThe biggest mistake is doing

    it again

    Even when Im with my friendsI want this whole thing just to end

    Sometimes I ponder what I would do

    If this whole thing hadnt come true

    Even though its in the pastIm still running from it really fast

    Crying out for someone to care Because deep inside Im

    really scared

    Help me! Help me! Help me, please!Can someone just acknowledge

    my plead

    I honestly dont know what I should do

    Is there anyone who can see my pain through and through

    Now day by dayThings are slowly coming into play

    Hurt, regret, and sheding tearsAre only going to make me

    stonger over the years

    So now I am a little strongerNo need to cry any longer

    I am happy with the things that happen everyday

    Theres a new person waiting to break away

    Regret? Ha! Thats in my pastBecause guess what? Im

    regretfree atlast!

    Regret . . .By: Tiara Perkins

  • For fifteen years you have been by my side,

    And when you leave, you will always be on my mind,

    We've shared so many tears and so many laughs,

    I must admit that you are my better half.

    I will in my room all sad and alone,And wait for the night when we catch up

    on the phone,Please don't leave and forget about me,

    Because then I will miss my best friend you see.

    I know you must grow and mature in your studies,

    So remember now who is your one true buddy,

    I love you so much and don't you forget,I will always cherish the first day

    we met....

  • You were supposed to always be there for me,

    But now you feel like a distant memory.

    A call here; a call there,It really makes me feel like you just

    dont care.

    A fathers love is supposed to be pure;But yours feels rocky and unsure.

    You never tucked me in at night,You never taught me how to fly a kite.

    You never did anything a father should do it seems,

    You never comforted me when I awoke from bad dreams.

    A fathers love is true and unconditional they say,

    So whenever Im around you why does it feel like a play?

    Like you just acting and really dont want me around,

    And you wonder why I sit in the corner and dont make a sound.

    I try and tell you how I feel, but you dont understand,

    But what can I expect from an imperfect man.

    I wish though for only one day you could be perfect for me,

    And then maybe; just maybe I could see.That you actually do love me.


    A Fathers Love

  • Memoriesby Marlei EnglishThe day you were born,The styles youve worn.Your birthdays you remember,That special day in December.When you travel far away, All the things you say.Who your best friends are,When you get your first car.These memories and many more,

    Are what will make your heart soar.As you get older these will fade,More will be made,But you will never forget these days,

    They formed the person you are that stays.

  • In our teenage minds the big picture isnt clearBecause we dont face the same traumatic fear

    Across dark waters, and through unknown landsIn these areas, I am one of their biggest fans

    In America, friends talk about each otherIn Iraq, each man is a brother

    Gun shots in this small town are very rareBut in Iraq its all they hear

    Liberty and trust are two simple wordsBut in Iraq its a whole different world

    Liberty for families at home and trust that your brother has your backInto beds at night they all stack

    Prayers for the ones they lost, and pains shooting up their bodiesLord bless those American soldiers who cross those dark seas

    A land unknown full of men of our countryIn this time we are seeing our history

    Peace in the Middle East is not a familiar soundBut this is not the first time we have fought for their ground.
