AnythingI feel like I need to fall to pieces.Something to relieve this pressure,something to break loose,something, anything.I want to break down,choke on my tears,scream,break something.Anything.But...I can't find the strengthto let myself go.I can't find the strengthto set the monster loose.I can't find the words to this something.Anything.Nothing.
Johnny Spoke in School TodayIn the corner of the classroomIs where Johnny always sat.With no one to ever swap notes with.No one to look at.His clothes were always black-That's what was all the same.But the surprise to all on that cold dayWas when Johnny said his name.Johnny spoke in school today.He'd always been the quiet one.But today he stood to say something.Something never done.The teacher got real quiet,The kids would only stare.And Johnny would just turn awayAnd curl up in his chair.Never had a friend or foe-Johnny went through life alone.But I wanted to know what brought the change.I later went down to his home.His dad was very angry.Johnny's blood was on the floor.His dad was beating him and telling himTo never speak up anymore.Johnny spoke in school today-It happened just one time.He never spoke a word again.He'd been taught that speaking was a crime.Johnny spoke in school today-The one day he broke away.But Johnny never spoke againBecause his father made him pay.COPYRIGHT

Almost as if I could fall asleep finally; with him there on the roof
But then there is also a small hint of something else in the air. A strange sadness that seems to flow from his heart to mine. And at this time I often wonder what keeps him up at night.What is the heart wrenching feeling that wakes him from sleep? What is the haunting thought that
