Freedom of Expression
You can take my legs,
I can still move
You can take my vocal cords,
I still have a voice
You can take my eyes,
I still have my vision
You can take my hands,
I still have my expression
But, please, don’t take my art,
that is my soul
My ears remain,
and they hear the cries of those starved for their freedom
I have to wonder…
are we restricted because you fear us and what we can do?
Everyone knows that the pen is mightier than the sword
What is unspoken is that imagination is mightier than government

Swim Free!
Hello, old friend, it's been a while,
It's been over a thousand days since I've seen you,
I can't tell you how much I've missed you,
You've been haunting my thoughts since I first saw you swim,
I'm sure you remember how persistent I was.
That year with you is beyond precious to me,
It was and still is the sakura of my life.
What I wouldn't give to return to that innocent time,
To swim free by your side to follow you into the deep blue.
Someday soon I hope that can happen,
I want to look into your ocean blue eyes and see a sight I've never seen before.
Please wait for me... Haru.

What Could Have Been
I never got fairy godparents.
I wasn't recruited for the Kids Next Door.
I never got a Hogwarts letter.
I didn't fly to Neverland.
I didn't fall through a rabbit-hole,
And I didn't travel through a looking-glass.
I never went to Alfea.
I didn't adopt an alien for a pet.
I didn't find Narnia.
No monsters appeared from the closet.
I didn't develop any mutant powers.
I have yet to meet the Doctor.
What are my chances of meeting Gandalf?
I doubt a Delorian is going to show up anytime soon.
Sam, Dean, Cass, and Gabe-
I'm praying for you to show up,
Either at my house, in my hometown, or at my college;
You are my last chance for an awesome adventure.
So, please, show up and take me with you.

When It's My Time
When it's my time, I think I'll see a dirt road,
It'll be summer and I'll be hearing a mash-up of Knocking on Heaven's Door and Stairway to Heaven.
I'll see a summer day at my grandparent's house,
My little sisters, older cousin, baby brother, stepmom and many others are enjoying a picnic waiting for me.
But when i think about it, I know me,
My place in heaven would be an immense library with a fully-stocked cafe'.
Music, books, film, cats, dogs, drinks, and snacks.
These are my peace.
These are my happiness.

MPme (FMind)
A song plays in my head,
I can't grasp it entirely,
So I switch songs;  change the channel,
Sometimes it works; sometimes it don't.
There's no volume control,
I can't find the off switch,
All I can do is Fly Away Now, Carry On (Wayward Son), Numb (Encore),
It's Just Communication, Rage On, Splash Free!,
All Right Now, R.O.C.K (In The U.S.A),
eh, What The Hell, Show Must Go On.

Nothing Will Touch
A black '67 Chevy Impala roars down the road,
She carries Earth's greatest brothers,
They are her pride and joy.
Dean is in the driver seat, sharing a laugh with Sam,
It's a good day; Carry On Wayward Son is on the radio & basic hunts are on the agenda,
He is confident nothing will touch Sammy.
Sam happily observes Dean from the passenger seat,
He doesn't mind the music; just happy he's happy,
He knows nothing will touch Dean.
Cass watches the brothers from heaven,
He's proud of the years he's spent by their side,
He prays that nothing will touch Sam and Dean.
Gabe smiles as he watches Sammo and Dean-o,
He sends them fun when their down,
He makes sure nothing will touch them.
Crowley listens in on  the squirrel and moose's activities,
He keeps track on any threats,
HE's the only one allowed to touch the boys.
God watches His Chosen Warriors,
He sees His angels and the King of Hell on the watch over them,
He smiles; nothing will touch the Winchesters.
Sam... Dean... Cass... Gab

The Artist
I pick up the paintbrush and stare at my subjects.
This is what I was summoned for, this is what will make me famous.
The king wanted me to work for him; to paint him and his court.
This isn't what I wanted to do, this isn't true art.
But this feeds my family and makes me known.
Yet, I'm not happy, I'm not fulfilled.
I turn my gaze to my canvas and touch my brush to the paint.
For now, this is all I can do; this is what I must do.
Because, for now, this is all I have.
My brush now touches the canvas.

Downward Spiral of a Rockstar :iconcatgirl19:Catgirl19 2 0
Am I Worthy
I lack patience for immaturity
I listen to rock and roll
I swear
I am pragmatic
I think all creatures have souls
I read fanfiction
Am I worthy of you, Lord Jesus?
Do I deserve the right to serve you?
Am I good enough?

A tiny hole hatches from an egg
The small creature searches for food
Now a caterpillar, it spins a shell
A beautiful creature breaks out
The butterfly is ready to soar

The night is young
The moon is high and full
Not a cloud in the sky
It is time, the hour is nigh
Time to spread my wings and fly
:iconcatgirl19:Catgirl19 2 1


UnDead System
Prisoners of a system
we built for protection
we must follow the rules
Order and crimes,
our justice denies
Order and crimes,
contradictions arise
Walking these blind streets
with weight on my future
I must follow your rules
Laws and lies,
my dream who denies?
Laws and lies
and a child who cries.

23 years old. I Love reading, writing poetry, and photography. Adore animals, especially cats.



Made with pride by the DeviantArt community BROWSE ALL ART

I know you're busy, Father; 
But I wanted to say thank you for what you've given me.
I hope you understand that it's hard for me to live up to your love and I try to do that; 
You know all of my faults and weaknesses, so it amazes me that you still love me.
You know my hopes and my dreams and I like to think that you're encouraging me to follow them.
I realize that I forgot to tell you I love you;
I do love you and I love Jesus, I look forward to meeting you someday.
Sincerely, Your Daughter,
Colleen M. Mary Magdalene Schafer


St*as Writer is finally working!!! Happy dance! -Markiplier Free2use I submitted a new poem called Swim Free. Anime fans should know what i'm talking about. I'll try to get more up this week. To my fellow Americans: Happy Independence Day, and may America survive these rough times. Goodnight Everybody.America (The Hero) [V2] 
that moment when you realize that you really haven't changed since high school.
I'm not dead. Just been having trouble finding decent computer access. I'll be posting again soon.

“Remember the balance; the give-and-take of energy. The symbol of yin and yang is more than the integration of male and female. It’s also the balance of light and dark, soft and hard, active and passive, in and out, giver and receiver. You can’t have one without the other.” 
Seek balance of heart and mindAngels of Yin and YangThanks for faving "Yin and Yang joined..." Colleen 

          Have a balanced weekend my friend   :) (Smile)    (Btw, sorry for a late reply we're travelling)
