    “Head Up”
    By: Ricki

    To have your heart broken,
    Is a repetitive slap in the face,
    A permanent experience in your life,
    One that your heart can’t erase

    But somehow or another,
    You choose to let it go,
    Hiding the pain and frustration,
    Determined never to let it show

    All the trust seems to vanish,
    Poof, into thin air,
    Now got that nonchalant attitude,
    But deep inside, we still care

    So, we throw trust out the window,
    Ain’t got nothing no more,
    Love and trust are gone,
    Our hearts’ permanently sore

    All the tears have been cried,
    And our eyes are dried out,
    No words will come through,
    When we open our mouths

    Hate and disgust,
    Is filled in our hearts,
    Though we try to deny it,
    Our world fell apart

    We try to make excuses
    As to why they did what they did
    Moping and wining,
    Like we did as a kid

    But why feel dependant on them,
    When they decided to leave?
    When they messed up our fairytale
    And destroyed all our dreams

    This is our world,
    Theyre only one person living in it,
    Stand up and raise your head,
    Don’t pity yourself, simply rid it:

    ‘Rid yourself of the strings
    That you decided not to cut,
    Of the memories you had,
    Don’t use them as your crutch

    You’re a survivor indeed,
    A true soldier standing tall,
    Always keep your head up,
    Don’t ever let it fall

    What you did with them,
    You can do by yourself,
    Rely on you and you only
    Don’t depend on someone else

    See, life is a game,
    One your forced to play
    Different decisions all the time,
    Ever changing each day

    If you give up, you fail
    You lost that quick
    God is the puppeteer,
    The one playing all the tricks

    But its all a lesson in living,
    You soon learn about life,
    “Is this right or wrong?”
    You finally start thinking twice

    Remember to keep your focus,
    Its all about you,
    Cuz when it comes to consequences…
    You’re the one it boils down to

    What you decide to do,
    Is your responsibility alone,
    Your destiny and future
    Is something you own!!’

    What they did was nothing,
    But a bump in the road,
    Dust the dirt off your shoulder
    And claim your spot on the throne

    Reclaim what was yours,
    And keep your chin up high
    Cuz the power of love for yourself
    Is something nobody can deny!!

      You are the master of your destiny (if you choose to be), and laying blame on what someone did/didn't do to you is only adding another nail to your coffin. God may not privelege us with every answer in advance to soften the blow, but He isn't a 'puppeteer' either; we have choices to make (some of them very painful) that may build or destroy our self-esteem. No one is worth casting yourself to the dogs to satisfy their desires, stand up, be strong. Wish you the best.

      Dam skippy!

    I will say this...and I hope that KB will read it as well. There is nothing in this world that is not meant to be. Love will come...love will go...that is part of the path each of us must take. I was in love with a man for 8 years. 8 dam years! Had a kid with him and everything...when the time came to let him go...I nearly let go of myself first. HORRIBLE.

    Within each of us there is a place where our own existence lies...and often we push our own existence to the side so someone else's existence can fit. THAT IS NOT WHAT LOVE IS! Love is when someone will help you to keep that place within yourself. They will remind you that you exist. Love is someone that will give you what you need for completion.

    I hope that KB feels better soon. And I hope that you keep your head on like this Ricki. this will lead you to all you need. And...you will end up with many followers.

    Much love,

      I thought this definitely achieved what you were going for. Very motivational, very positive. You have a definite lyricism in your work. I don't mean this as a bad thing by any means-it's a compliment-but I had a rap beat going through my head the whole time I was reading it. It felt like a really well-written, meaningful rap song. You might consider putting it to music. Except for a few grammatical errors here and there ("dependent" not "dependant" and "whining" not "wining"), this was a flawless work. Thanks for sharing! - Lazy Spleen

    Think Feedback more than Compliments :: [ Guidelines ]

    1. Be honest.
    2. Try not to give only compliments.
    3. How did it make you feel?
    4. Why did it make you feel that way?
    5. Which parts?
    6. What distracted from the piece?
    7. What was unclear?
    8. What does it remind you of?
    9. How could it be improved?
    10. What would you have done differently?
    11. What was your interpretation of it?
    12. Does it feel original?


    Be kind, take a few minutes to review the hard work of others <3
    It means a lot to them, as it does to you.
