Minimum Wage

Daily days of a routine craze

You are in an endless bottle where you will not find praise
and you're at the bottom of it, and one things for sure, you will not get to the top, it is not just a phase
It'll seem like forever,like a maze
But there's no ending, and there's no raise


You are their slave.
Are you angry!? Shut up! You better behave
Can you keep quiet about your nonsense about this word called "deprave"!?
You are my merchandise, you are my favorite and overworked microwave
If I could, and it was legal, I would work you in a grave
I could care less how it is evil, there are two people talking to me.
Greed and Crave


You, a cash cow.
Do you know how much you made us now!?
Get it done, right now! No! I do not care how,
But free time is not something I will allow!


You work for one, but they like to count, soon you'll be working for two
Two becomes four, and even more, workers will see, and working becomes few
They'll complain, but did they ever put on your shoes?
You're working for all of the fools, and for corporate, there is no end to what you will do!


Work the best? That's a mess
They go upstairs, put you apart from the rest, put you all of you up to the test
Sooner or later, they'll put you and all of your skills to the excess,
A break? A lunch? Forget about it, there is no time
For something like recess!


To us down here it's pretty sadistic

But to the people up there, it is more than realistic
They are always looking for you to do more the next day, you feel it's too sophistic
They don't want to hear about it, to them, finishing is just simple simplistics
Doesn't it just get you so ballistic?
You are just a mere statistic


You will not get further, they will not let you turn the page
Are you kidding me?
You are the bottom of the barrel, 
The lowest stage
Welcome to the daily uniform apparel
Welcome to minimum wage.

A Piece of Advice


When boy meets girl from the other side,

Things were moving very fast.

No one could have ever imagined,

Things have gotten so serious.


Lots of secrets need to expose,

Lots of lies need to explain.

Hearts torn into pieces,

Don't know which way to go.


During that short time,

Things felt real, sadly its not.

Choose your man wisely,

That's all I have to say.

Fuck you, Brutus

How dare you kick me!

Kick me when I was down!

Et tu, Brutus?


How fucking dare you take advantage of me having a heart;

Of me being around.

I feel an ache that I can't shake from this knife in my back.

Et tu, Brutus?


This shit is wack!

I have learned a thing or two about a thing or two.

I was your fool, I trust too easily.

But, not anymore.

Et tu, Brutus?


Who the fuck are you calling a whore?

Is the pot calling the kettle black again?

I don't have time for your shenanegans.

Fuck you, Brutus.

Evil, dark, demented always smart, always laying deep inside my head, making me wish I’m always dead. Tired and jaded feeling dejected, everyone I meet always makes me feel rejected. They pretend to be my friend and I’m glad I see into their faces, to know their real intent to send me into blazes. I stay to myself with very little clearance, my freedom gone with no last song. To be strong and belong brings me to a life to prolong.

One Missed Call

I think, today, I'm going to smash my phone with a hammer.
because everytime it goes off, I get a false sense of hope that it'll be you at the other end.

But you're not there,

you never are,

so instead of sitting here wishing upon stars,

I'll distroy the thing that causes me so much pain.

On second hand, maybe I'll wait until tomorrow...
you know...
incase you decide to call.  

Twisted Lies

Happiness is what she confides in

As she stares into the night

There's nothing more satisfying

His comfort felt so right

She loves that calming look

As she looks deep in his eyes

But she suddenly has this feeling

That he's holding back some lies

He suddenly turned away from her

Now she felt so tossed

How can someone "complete" you

But continue to feel so lost

As she backs off from him

Her tears flowing down her face

He explains to her so tenderly

That he just needs some space

So weeks went by without one call

She started to feel her rage

He had her where he wanted her

Chained down and in a cage

She caught a glimpse of him one day

Her tummy in a whirl

For what she saw was full of pain

Him kissing another girl

Since that day she caged her voice

She put away her soul

Until that day she married him

And made her heart feel whole<3

Had a little bit of help writing this from a friend :) but love how it turned out!

Sometimes do you feel like a shadow?

You're always there but no-one knows

So many times you've gotten trampled on before

And before anyone notices, you're always gone


This is what I feel like

Not loved, forgotten and disliked

These things seem to get in the way

But they always say "push through the day"


Sometimes I can, sometimes I can't

I feel so sad and yet so mad

I am really not a shadow anymore

I am just a girl who is unsure


I'm lost in a life that I am living

Just hoping and wishing I could change the beginning.

When Life Gives You Lemons

When life gives you lemons, 
you'll pucker at first; 

but after a while, 

you'll become immune to the flavor. 

Who knows,

you may even acquire a taste for them.

Don't Speak

I'm sitting here with you on this big comfy bed

Wrapped up, tangled up, embraced in your arms

Feeling your warmth and heart beating up against my body

I sit my hands on your shoulders and look into your eyes as mine fill up with tears

I look away and lose your gaze

But only for a moment...


You turn my face and fix it onto yours and wipe off my wet cheeks

You smile that smile that captivates me though I know I should not let it

Because everyone tells me that you're just trying to keep me holding on for dear life



I begin to speak a bit to fast and once again you stop me

You press your finger to my lips and then you proceed to shush me

Don't speak, just listen

You tell me exactly how you feel and it breaks my heart in two

All I'm thinking at this point is how much you still have to prove

Holding my head in your hands as you hold me tightly against you

You try to say what I've longed to hear without ever actually saying it

But I tell you I want to hear it and I pry it out of you


Those three little words leave your lips so easily just like you'd said it for years

I don't say a word...I don't know what to say, but the one thing I couldn't hold back was tears

As I start to ask why now, why now do you tell me

You look into my eyes, yours looking full of emotion

Then you press your lips so softly right up against mine for the first time in years

Surprise and happiness fill me quickly because for once I felt like we were back at where we started

I walk you out to your car relentlessly but willing

You hug me so tight and kiss me one more time making it linger for what seems like forever

As we stand embraced you say for the third time, I love you and I finally respond

I love you too

And then you whisper...

Don't speak
