Darkness and Love

Anonymous

Willy Pleasance

No matter what our pasts may say

What hurts, our pains endured,

And tears shed for those who

Walked away.

You and I, need not let ourselves

Be defined by those hurts from

Our pasts and no longer will it

Influence our time.

Why let our future carry the burden

And for the sore of an armour

And shackles of a place in time

We are no more.

No matter what, I love you, You

Have my consistency through it all.

Nor be fearful of losing us should our

Love turn to war.

My white flag will never fall and

We can through it all.

I am yours always, I am your now

I am your then, And I promise to give

you my all, I love you no matter what,

And I love you forever more...

I'll Never Come to Prison Again

By Joseph B

If I could dress it up and say I never felt better

That I’ve got a girl at home and I’m waiting for a letter

I’d pretend the kids are fine and doing well at school

And when I phone they say they miss me

And they think their daddy’s cool

The Road to Redemption

By Elisa

Don't follow in my footsteps

It's been no Sunday stroll

No the road to redemption

Isn't paved in gold

I Am Yours

By Lauren

No matter what our pasts may say 

What hurts, our pains endured,

And tears shed for those who

Walked away.

You and I, need not let ourselves 

Be defined by those hurts from

Our pasts and no longer will it

Influence our time.
