RENT(Movie Version)


Whenever I was in Mrs. Walden's Middle School math class, she constantly talked about the musical RENT. Little did I know one of my favorite songs of all time would come from this musical: Seasons of Love. And Now, for the first time ever, I will watch this movie. I will update this post in the middle and at the end of the movie to discuss my opinions. Wish me luck!!!!

Dictionary adjustments???

Mr. Merriam-Webster, If that's even your real name. Please change your definition of kiddo to "GIANT GROWN UP".


Scrub-A-Dub-Dub: Abuse in the Tub

The time she fear the most is here
Her uncle comes hand on beer
The door opens with a squeak
All of a sudden she feels weak

His smile is big His eyes are grim
She is way too scared of him
Her grabs her arm and drags her close
“Ready for fun?” He wickedly boasts

Her mom and dad are on a date
It ended early they’re at the gate
He shuts the bathroom door behind them
She’s in tears it’s time to please him

Mom and Dad are at the door
The keys are somewhere in mom’s purse
Now he’s got her on the floor
Pleasurably saying every curse

The floor is soaking from her eyes
It hurts so bad like the family ties
Up the steps her parents go
Side by Side hands in tow

He’s punching her he likes the feel
It’s been so long It feels so real
Her dad walks in to his horror
Her mom looking in the mirror

Her Daddy pulls his gun from its place
And thrusts it painfully in his face
He pulls the trigger one good time
Her uncle drops like a dime

Her Mom is mad and sad and crying
Her Dad is overwhelmed his brain is frying
She never saw her uncle again
Till this day she still wears a grin

The Mask

Her mask is black
Her mask is blue
Her mask hides the secrets she keeps from you
If you ask why, she won’t explain
For so long she’s hid the pain
She’s got it all it’s in her blink
The looks the money so in sync

Her mask is black
Her mask is blue
All this time her pain has grew
Secretly she bleeds to stop the tears
She’s covered it up for so many years
Its been a while since the blood has flown
Her years of abuse are to others unknown

Her mask is black
Her mask is blue
At the office the others ask
Why it is she wears a mask
She knows she was wrong when she said ‘I do’
Now her body is all black and blue
Just like her mask that she still wears
Her body is being filled with tears
But each day, slowly, it wears off
She’s so weak all she does is cough

Her mask is black
Her mask is blue
The pain is evident they hope she’s through
She knows she loves him or so she says
Her name is Mrs. Kami Cortez
Tonight he’s mad she knows at her
She’s finally seeing through the blur

Her mask is black
Her mask is blue
She cries at night if they only knew
She covers it up with a lie
If she doesn’t get out she will surely die
So she packs quietly in the night
She can’t go far ‘cause money is tight

Her mask is black
Her mask is blue
He’s passed out---it’s surely her que
When he wakes, she’s full of fright
He hits her once with all his might
One blow it took for heavens sake
They all cry at her wake
They know he killed her but have no proof
Forever now, he will run aloof
