There’s a conviction
for the affliction
due to your murderous
form of affection.
while slowly serenading
lovers who lye
bound across your bed.
No harm in slicing
In ripping out their hearts,
quite literally of course.
Making a simple kiss,

I pretend. I’m not interested. I don’t care. I’m not engaged. Your world is not mine. I sit in your world, at my desk, at my keyboard. The screen is your world. My mind is mine. I carry it off with conviction. I am an actress.

i felt very convicted in my decision of giving away my young child. i know that i couldn’t raise her like i wanted but i pray the people she is put with take good care of her. i named her after her free spirit, Destiny. i knew that with the first look i took upon her i love her with all of my heart. i will find her someday i swear an oath on my life.

I stand by the belief of me going to the Olympic’s to play hockey on team Canada. To make that happen i have to work hard like, working hard in practices and in hockey academy and in game.I have to skate hard and eat healthy foods and exercise daily such as bike rides volley ball and dry land training at school. One of my role models are Shannon Sabidoes.
his heart felt heavy with the pain and guilt of conviction that he had left her alone in the dark. he was now forever going to carry the burden of knowing what he did and how he could have acted otherwise.

horrified, betrayed, lost in the guilt. he wouldnt have done this if you hadn’t treated him like a dog maybe if you considered his childhood you would have understood him better. this is where it ends for him you shortened his journey by many years with the words you said, you will be buried knowing he sacrificed his life for yours to go on.
it slid down my throat, chilled, and sharp, like a cocktail on ice. i never wanted to be that right. but he was. he was. and is. and will be, because i have no way to stop him.

i feel convicted about my life. i feel one thing, yet am told to do another. it bothers me a lot because i want to be a good person yet i’m told that EVERY decision i make it the wrong one. i wonder constantly what you want from me..yet when i ask i get no clear answer. we do well for a while and then we collapse.
By courtney on 10.11.2011
My mother says that we are only as strong as the strength of our convictions. If that’s the case, then I’m afraid I’m not very strong at all. I can’t find anything that I believe in strongly enough to call it a conviction, unless it’s that all people are idiots. If that’s my only conviction, I think I’m doomed.
By Claire on 10.11.2011
For quite some time, I didn’t take no chances. Was a prisoner in my own mind. A wanted felon with no prosecutor. Now, I keep begging for a conviction- but you don’t understand, I feel the law might be corrupted.

The feeling of not having enough air, because you are just that sure of being right. There is nothing else, just greatness, because the truth has emerged. What is wrong or right when there is conviction? It is the difference between false accusations and truth. Or is it?
By Kayley on 10.11.2011
CONVICTION! Shout it out to the world! Show that you have it. If you have conviction for something, then you let others know that you believe in it. If you don’t have conviction, then what do you have? Show your conviction! To family, to friends, to religion, to language, to culture, to books, to writing, to anything!

conviction has taken her their. she followed it, whatever happened and whatever people said. then she found herself all alone. she sometimes wonders if she should have compromised herself to have some people around. but, nah, she would have been dead anyway if she had. so she is now looking for some people who at least see her as she is.

Breathless. I couldn’t tell you what convinced me. Maybe it was the feeling of drowning, maybe the taste of acid on my tongue, but suddenly, I knew he was my brother. No one can save someone else like that then never leave. It was remarkable, the transformation in just a few hours.

The guy was purely evil. He was sent to jail for numerous crimes before. But never this bad. Convition. The word kept playing through his head. Conviction. Conviction, conviction, conviction. It was ringing in his ears. The metal bars slammed shut in front of him, the lock clicking into place. Conviction. Ten more years.

Being accused of a crime. Criminal.
Blamed for something. In the wrong.

I was so very strongly believing of my point that I spoke with great conviction at the trial of the Doggs vs State. But of course, it doesn’t matter how strongly you speak if no one can hear you because you’re just the dead ghost of the victim.
By Meagan Bell on 10.11.2011
There’s a criminal in jail! He did bad things and now he is being convicted. He might have raped someone or shot someone. I don’t know, but he’s bad!!!!!!!!!!! GET AWAY!!! He has brown hair, by the way. And green eyes. He’s 23

It’s the right place and the right time, and you have to be seen by the right person. That’s what my father always told me. I don’t believe it. I can’t. I will be an actor. The right time and e right person help, but the real success doesn’t come from luck. It comes from conviction.
By Rcimae on 10.11.2011
Is that when you have a criminal, and he gets in a lot of trouble? Convicted! Ohh that sounds like a nasty word. But then I guess its for a nasty person D: WAHHHHHHH You just got convicted!

Determination is a good thing but as it can also mean that you have been accused of having committed a crime by your peers, is conviction a good thing? Perhaps, determination is the better meaning. I want to have conviction in my life but not a conviction … what a difference an “a” makes.
By Christine Vellacott on 10.11.2011
there was no proof.
there were no pictures,
the evidence was hidden in my heart,
the one place i couldn’t lie…not to anybody…not even to myself.
but you were too smart for me…
you caught me as i ran away,
you found my hiding place,
you should have dragged me away and locked me up,
because me loving you could mess up your perfect life.
thats why i hid everything…
to avoid conviction.
to avoid the inescapable, impossible truth that i prayed was a lie.
i knew deep down it wasn’t.
and thats what scared me the most.
and thats why, to find that one little secret,
you’d have to tear my soul in half,
stomp on my heart,
and make me cry until i can’t think anymore.
you’ve already done all of those things,
so why am i not convicted?
why haven’t you figured it out?
the answers are there,
out in the open,
yet you turn away and close your eyes,
as if you can’t bear to see them.

Convicting someone of a crime. Maybe a crime they didn’t really commit. Maybe failing to convict someone of a crime they did commit. A strong belief in something. Religion. Faith. God. Being sure of something, having no doubts. Unwavering. Unchangeable. Unstoppable.

Conviction can mean determination and that is a good thing to have in your life. A conviction can mean that you have been accused of a crime. What a difference an “a” makes.
She couldn’t believe what she was hearing? An X-acto knife? Could the woman have been her sister? Her Aunt Tabitha? Now she was being convicted and there was no telling what she would have done with the fetus she cut out of the other woman’s belly. It was the grossest thing she’d ever known.
By Mel on 10.11.2011
I really believe that I need to have conviction in order to be successful in what I need to do. If I really love something, I will have the conviction to go after it. I have to avoid procrastinating here, as well.

He had spoken with such conviction: “I will never marry. Absolutely never!”
But here he was in his nicest suit, the ring in his pocket.

It’s easy to sidetrack yourself in choice. For most, choice simply doesn’t exist. It’s not a choice to be homosexual or heterosexual, not a choice to be religious or nonreligious. It’s a conviction. The only way to change a conviction is by arguing about it.

Conviction is when a person is determined to do something. Or a person is sentenced to death or community service. Convicts clean up America’s highways but people with guns have to follow them around so that they don’t run away and rape lots of people or kill someone.

I wish i had a passion for something. Something other than making sure bills were paid, the guy i liked is thinking about me, how i look when i go out into the world, but everyday these things overcome any type of potential passion i could ever develop.
By joanna on 10.11.2011
