It’s your funeral today


I’m wearing earrings grandma
I know you can’t hear me but
my make up is done, my nails are painted, and I’m wearing purple.

He comes in the dark of the night

Everything he touches filled with fright

You can hear his cold dark voice calling your name.

 There are only two things you can do:

One, embrace his cold dark face and thick black poison. Liste...

We’re all a little quirky and don’t belong

but we’ve had a home all along.

Behind books and computers we are all waiting, 

without fail and forever fading into the background of your lives.

You finally look worldly to me

your face tainted by hypocrisy

You once told me that half of you was hiding.

You blocked me from your Instagram.
I guess my face and name were just t...

#MeToo, There's nothing left to say to you.

It's not my place to judge, but that works in your favor.

I don't hold a grudge, because God is my savior.

It is through faith alone that I have not wavered, Instead;

I'll let you live your comfy life with your four beautiful chi...
