You know what it's like,
When your feet touch the bottom.

You wish you were like others,
But you know that you can never be.

The glam and the glitz,
The sound of a thousand people cheering you on.

That's not for you, 
That's never going to be for you!

But you know what,
You've got something else inside of you.

You've got something else,
That no one who sits on a lofty throne could ever have.

And that's pain...

You're in pain, because you know this is bitter.
You're in pain, because you've been denied something better.

But you take that dose of bitterness 
And you swallow it like it's god-damn medicine!

Because the king expects you the crumble,
The king expects you to lie down and surrender.

So play dead if you have to,
But when you rise again...

Make sure you tear out their god-damn throat!

Here's the start of my creative rush, expect more soon!

It's been awhile, I've decided to start a creative rush (since my recording equipment is still out of commission).

In the mean-time, why not follow me on facebook :3 I'll entertain you when I can o3o

'their' would refer to a group of people...but you wrote 'throat'. :/ English is so complicated...is that possible???

I can relate to this personally, although not in the context of bullying or anything like that. More like; being damned to a lifetime of pain for being enslaved by my own conscience.

This is how I feel about the people who bullied me. Man, if I ever meet them again, I am going to enjoy showing them how much stronger I have gotten, and that they will never be able to break me again.

I know I've never told you this, but this, as all of your literature is, is absolutely phenomenal! Every time you submit something new, I am inspired to create my own writings. I know I can never amount to such a great writer like you, you're just to amazing and brilliant with words! It's as, if in everything you write, the words come alive and paint a picture on a canvas once empty to me. Thank you so much for sharing your writing with us all, no matter how insignificant we are, are for inspiring us all to write and learn things we may never see or hear again. :D

Have a wonderful day!

My dear fellow Australian lady,

I am honoured to receive such a compliment, but unlike authors and writers who have what we call 'talent', this is merely the result of practice.

You can certainly be as amazing as I am and I know that each and every person has the strength within them to surpass me. Of course I'm not going to make it easy, but it is possible.

So grab your pen and start with the writing. The sea is vast and you never know what treasures you might uncover.
