Where Is My life?

  • Oct 11, 2009
  • by

By Jason Standart

Grew up with friends and family that I love and love me

Yet I’ve always felt alone.

The pain that people have caused me

I fear has turned my heart into stone

Why can’t I say “I Love You”

What is wrong with me

This is not the person that I wanted to be

The pain in my heart will not go away

Tell me how long is it going to stay


Growing up faster, and faster everyday

I must be the second parent

It’s the only way.

The only way to keep the family together

Sacrificing me for them so their life’s will be better

Don’t worry about me I don’t need to go out

I will stay in, so you can learn what life’s all about.

Responsibility and parenthood that’s all that I’ve known

You must be the man, don’t cry and don’t moan.

Taking care of others before myself

Putting all of my needs on the back shelve.



As I get older my responsibilities grow

A new baby on the way, I must take care of I know.

One more to protect, keep safe, and out of harm.

Protecting others is all that I know

But when is my turn to be protected

Maybe I’ll never know.


Growing up with no man, no teacher, no pal

Growing up without a dad is like living in hell

Don’t show my emotions, I have to stay strong

To take care of them, I must act like nothing is wrong.

Don’t trust and don’t open your heart

Those are words that I live by,

Even though they are wrong

No man will come in again and cause me to cry.


Drugs and abuse that is the past that I seen

Is it my destiny to repeat it?

No! That will never be me.

The fear is still there, that I’ll get sucked in that whole

This is why I don’t drink, for the fear of losing control.




Tears in her eyes, the bruise on her arm

Never again will anyone cause my mom harm.


Three men that I trust , one happens to be gay

My comfort level goes up because I know he won’t hurt us that same way.

 Not like the others

Not like before

Learn to be a man not from them, but him is what I aim for.


Alone, full of sadness with no one to talk to

No one there to help me get through

Most people have best friends, to tell secrets, not me 

I stayed to myself so that no one could see.

See the pain that I hide

The secrets that I keep

I won’t share it with no one, not even a peep.

Don’t feel sorry, don’t feel sad

Compared to others my life’s not that bad.

Don’t know what I’m doing, don’t know who I am

Why does my life feel like a sham.

A life that’s not lived, no experiences gained

All because of the fact that my heart has been stained.



For know this is my Istorya, part one of what I choose to share

Part two will come when my heart is there.

Maybe one day my heart will again open

I know that it will because it’s bruised but not broken.

FILL Life, Feel Life!
Life is... what you deem it to be; its meaning is... what you prescribe to it.      It is about living to one's fullest capabilities, hopes and courage. It is about forgiving oneself, others and possibly even God for not turning out the way you wish or expect it to be. It is about accepting, it is about being and it is in the act of living itself. To live life is to have new hopes each day, week and year. It is all encompassing, it is all divine. It therefore is simply life …

The Journey That is LIFE....
   With the promise of a New Year looming, I always like thinking back at the past year. Not just the events itself but what I did and what I didn’t do, my mistakes and my triumphs. I guess you may say that I tend to think about life itself. Not life as the bond between all human beings or a term from biology but the force that gives us our self-awareness and the ability to feel physical and intangible things.     The dictionary defines life as the force that makes …

Live & let live, that's been one of my mottos for a long time. Never live to regret and do what one wants to do when one wants to do it! I still abide by this rule although at times I need to be more aware of the consequences of doing that. It's come to a stage whereby I think I need to be more attuned to the people surrounding. Reaching out is great, but it's also time to go for depth, in all essence.       Well, now that it's 22nd May in my …

About this topic


Life (cf. biota) is a characteristic that distinguishes objects that have self-sustaining biological processes ("alive," "living"), from those which do not —either because such functions have ceased (death), or else because they lack such functions and are classified as "inanimate."

In biology, the science that studies living organisms, "life" is the condition which distinguishes active organisms from inorganic matter, including the capacity for growth, functional activity and the continual change preceding death. A diverse array of living organisms (life forms) can be found in the biosphere on Earth, and properties common to these organisms—plants, animals, fungi, protists, archaea, and bacteria — are a carbon- and water-based cellular form with complex organization and heritable genetic information. Living organisms undergo metabolism, maintain homeostasis, possess a capacity to grow, respond to stimuli, reproduce and, through natural selection, adapt to their environment in successive generations. More complex living organisms can communicate through various means.

In philosophy and religion, the conception and nature of life varies, and offer interpretations in the frameworks of existence and consciousness, and touch on many other related issues, such as, ontology, value, life stance, purpose, conceptions of God, the soul and the afterlife.
