Confessions of a Bound Soul

Brother, my brother,
How selfish was I
While you seemed to struggle,
I sat idly by

Brother, my brother
Yes, try as I might
I now realize
It was also my fight

Brother, my brother
Now look at your arm
It's cold and immovable
Lost all its charm

Brother, my brother
Now look at your leg
There's so much left missing
Yet not once did you beg

Brother, my brother
Though I lost more in mass
It is you far more haunted
By our mistakes in the past

Brother, dear brother
Listen when I say
I will stick by your side
Until this goes away

Brother, dear brother
Listen when I say
I will stick by your side
Until our final day
Amanda Saveley



A Closed Mind is Like A Nail in Your Coffin

This world is more than dark and light
And there is more than black and white
If you don't color outside the lines
You will remain deaf, dumb, and blind
Yeah, you may be able to use your eyes
But what you see are your own lies
And you may be be able to use your ears
But you only hear what you want to hear
And you may be able to comprehend
But how can you understand when you only offend?
When you only defend your own opinion?
When everything has to fit YOUR definition?
This world we're in don't work that way
Not everyone will listen to what you got to say
So don't be stupid! Don't be shallow
Or your life will be left empty and hollow
You will be lost, sad, and alone
And won't ever really be at home
So open your eyes, ears, mind, and heart
Don't let those misconceptions tear your life apart
That births prejudice and racist ideals
At which point, no one ever feels
The need to fix this world we've broken
Our tattered hearts are only tokens
Of what is wrong with society today
So pay attention to what you say
And watch your mouth in case you offend
And speak not of what you can't comprehend
Or someone will shut your mouth for you
And all will suffer who adore you
And be left in the wake of this nonexist
All because you got somebody pissed
And I know this is like talking to a wall...

But I'd rather do this than nothing at all.
Amanda Saveley



Kissing in the Rain?

I finally got that kiss I wanted but would never admit to wanting
Because wanting kisses are crazy and crazy just won't do.
But I got it,
As the rain was falling hard
And it reminded me of that one movie I'll never admit to watching
(Or never admit to liking, anyway...)
And I felt just a little cliche, but that's okay
Because cliche's not so bad when you look at it that way
And the rain was falling hard
So there must've been some kind of brain damage
That made me stand out there, getting soaked
With rain-drenched hair and a sun-soaked smile
(Though the sky was completely clouded over-DUH, it was RAINING...)
And cliche was okay, so I smiled kinda crooked anyway
And all right, so there was no running involved
No throwing open of arms
Just a simple, 'Hey, come over here'
(Because I never just ASK)
And you smile, somehow knowing what I want the way you always DO
In your simple, laid-back way,
You make the what, five, six step walk over to me
In my precipitation-absorbed jeans and standard black Old Navy flip flops
And simply give me what I secretly always wanted
Though it's terribly cliche
And horribly overrated
And not all-that special
Our brains are both water-logged
So neither of us really care
And it's special this time, because it's really what I wanted
No one forced me into this one
And there are no strings attached
No latent heartbreak waiting for me in the wings
And most importantly,

I love you.
Amanda Saveley



Oh, Dr. Seuss woulda been proud...

I took a breath,
I counted to ten,
Took another breath,
And counted again.
And though I am focused
And my mind is clear
There really is something
I think you should hear.
Sometimes you're angry
And you want to lash out
Your heart is full of rage
And your mind is full of doubt
So you do what you will
And you attack me so random
There is no reason
The facts are not tandem
One cannot bring up
Every single fault
And still expected
To be treated as adult
So as I count again backwards
And breathe again deep
Here's a little something
On which you should sleep
If with the world you are angered
And do not disagree
Go take it up with them
And stay far away from me.
Amanda Saveley
