Poem by IN-Q. To see more of his work go to:


So this is living
Every single day is like a blessing we’ve been given
I keep my scars hidden behind the bars of this prison
I keep my flaws tucked, right behind my front, sucking up this blunt
I don’t give a
Hey what’s up
How you been
Cool man I’m doing me
Chiller than the Artic but burning like a third degree
I’m open like a surgery
I’m searching for a crutch
It’s as natural as putting antiseptic on a cut
Heal me
I fiend for my fix
There’s a void on the inside
I fill it up with fluff to avoid where my sins lie
I’m talking puppy dogs and ice cream
Caffeine, nicotine, puffing on a pipe dream
Daddy needs a new pair of anything
Maybe you relate
Lay your head upon my pillow, wake up with a clean slate
I thought that if I found out who I was
Away from anything I’d ever tried to use to catch a buzz
I would build a better me
So I did
Delving into all of the hurt I had hid since a kid
Everytime I felt the urge I would hold on
I want to reach the other side, my goal’s to be headstrong
When right feels dead wrong
When night feels too long
When life feels too long
When hindsight is blinding and reminding us to hold on
You’re not alone
We’ve all been there together
We’re facing the storm because bad weather ain’t forever
We’re breaking the norm
To see if maybe there is more
But we’ll never know until we’re on the other side of that door
I don’t want to use you for anything
Abuse you for anything
Or lose you to anything
Love is not obsession, there are no strings attached
So I cant love you if I’m like yeah but there’s a catch
I want freedom from desire because this moment is real
They speak about courage but they don’t own how they feel
I want to scream truth
Just to hear it echo back
I don’t need your validation this is truly where I’m at
See this poem is for the lost and the found
Who’ve been tossed to the ground
Who’ve been crossed by their friends
Get up stand your ground again
Make your heart the strongest muscle that you’ve got
Then let it guide you in the dark
Until you reach the other side

    I've only heard a few poems that are better than this one, including "My balls are itchy" by Asher Coady and "OCD" by Neil Hillborn

    Thank you.

    It has been a while since I see words of heart.
    Words mending our broken bones.
    Words heavier than stone,
    making my mind blown.

    Words that start new life in stride,
    and makes us look to the sky.
    Even though life on that other side won't be all rainbows and butterflies.

    So we look upon our standing ground
    that shakes beneath our feet.
    And jump past undiscovered bounds
    so we can land on the same streets.

    Because that's all we get to see,
    Limit is our inevitibility.

    But we must believe.

    Seize the life you have been bestowed
    Think outside the box
    Drive on that less traveled road
    And break from your routine clocks.

    Because mistakes in life should be yours to make,
    you should be the one to choose the lane you take,
    and for God's sake.

    Know that it won't be a peace of cake.
    Know that if you keep your feet strong,
    your legs will not break.

    Don't doubt.
    Just take.

    This is Amazing, I want to turn it into a song. This is so beautiful. Anyone know where I can find the words for it?

    The biggest addiction we are facing, is the addiction to money. From the "white collar" crimes of Wall Street to the street corner drug dealer. How much is enough profit? Why does money have to come between human beings and basic necessities? …When we switch from a Monetary based economy to a Resource Based Economy, harmful addictions will become a thing of the past.

    A truly haunting, inspiring, hopeful message–one this country would do well to hear more often. God bless you and those who's lives you have changed for the better. =)
