Twen [T minus Something]You're a day over twenty,Twen [T minus Something] by Mabogunje
Or a year, or nine more
So it's time to get hassled
For we have been keeping score
You may not feel it, but you're lonely
And you've got to find a spouse
You may not know it, but you're homely
And you need to buy a house
When we call you "twenty-something"
It just means we've had enough
It's a sign we think you're ready
To find love, and kids, and stuff
So start looking and stop slacking!
We are sure it will pay off
And speaking of getting paid
Find a job, the market's tough
Look, we know that you are sceptic
And we know, that you're afraid
Yes we know, you don't feel ready
But we're sick of your delays
Step it up, young man or woman
It is time to do your part
Best read "Twen [T minus something]"
It counts down, until you start.
ManicI AM NOTManic by Mabogunje
This bluster belies the beads of sweat
Scoring his forehead and marring his vest as
His heart reattempts an escape from his chest
His eyes seem to dart as if they're on a quest
His words are so quick that they all come in bursts
His thoughts are belaboured; they seem such a mess
Still he doesn't think he's a man in distress
He's worried because he knows these are the signs
He's worried because it's happened other times
He's Worried. So worried. He's out of his mind.
A panic so manic, that it's a rare find...
I AM NOT!!!
Problem Solvers"Time! More Time!" the teachers cryProblem Solvers by Mabogunje
As six by ten seconds fly by
"I started in the afternoon
How did it get this late, so soon?"
"Why!? Why!?" principals sigh
As two in three students fall shy
"I know we did, all that we could
Why is it not being understood?"
"How!? How!?" the district asks
Can we solve for [tool] in [task]?
"What can we use across the map
That gets our grades up to the cap?"
"Whoa! Whoa!" the gurus say
Let's look at this a different way
"A problem underlies these facts
and do the math"
The Road to Inner PeaceAlong the road to inner peaceThe Road to Inner Peace by Mabogunje
I found a truth: I was amiss
Lost in a sea of mental bliss
I thought I knew...
I knew not this.
That to be weak is to be strong
That we all need to feel we belong
That hearts are made to be exposed
And secrets must not stay untold
For in this life, we will have fears
And we might feel, that no one cares
But if we hide our heartfelt tears
Then when we cry...
Well, no one hears.
So, It ShattersSo, It Shatters:So, It Shatters by WoodpeckerDMW
So, today it fell.
It slipped right from
As it fell,
It shattered on the floor
The shards sliced,
And as they spread
So, I bled today.
My heart was ripped
Right from my chest.
As I bled,
I told myself it was for
The blood pooled,
And I looked at it,
But still I couldn't rest.
So, I smiled today.
It spread across my lips when
I wasn't thinking about you.
As it faded,
My heart ached and stomach cramped,
But I knew
That before today
We were friends,
And I could trust you.
So, after today
I leave with a sad smile
As a friend,
Something so special about me,
I'll always care.
Though I wish
That somedays I wouldn't because I can't
But here I stay
For you. As a friend,
Even though you
Broke me. I told you
But I still feel it-
The empty space
Air is filling it,
Because my heart lies shattered
On the floor.

Hello Mother, Hello Father
This is me your son or daughter
I can't stay long, so I'll say it fast;
I need to go over things of the past
Listen closely, now don't you fret
This letter is to you so you won't forget;
It happened quickly, I understand,
Just listen to my reprimand:
This first part is to you, my mother
The one who didn't even bother:
You brought me into this dead world,
Then you left me to die
You never said one word to me
You never said goodbye
An infant child no more than one
Cries long into the night
The yearning for its mother's tone
To play in its ears has died
As it grew it never knew
Of what a mother would be like
You left me alone in this world
And I cried every single night
The next is to my father so,
You held on tight and never let go:
I love you much
You know it's true
It's not all your fault
So don't blame you
You were young and stupid
In this world
Every night it changed
It was always a different girl
You weren't there
For most my l
