someone who has done something bad
By Ehlana on 10.11.2011
Conviction. That’s a feeling. An emotion. Something that you feel once you’ve been convicted of something. It’s almost like guilt, but conviction is a heck of a lot worse. I know. I’ve had conviction before. But not very badly. It gets a whole lot better once you apologize. Seriously. I would know.

I am convicted of a crime
that i never did
i was never going to do
just because i have done something one day
and the day before
does not mean im going to do it again.

I want to live my life with the conviction that I am doing what I’m supposed to be doing. I want to have the conviction that what I’m doing matters and makes an impact that lasts after I am gone.

You must follow your gut and you must stand strong when it gets tough to follow through. Life is too short to follow the crowd and not do something or do something against your convictions just to be “in.” Without conviction what do we have?

This is final. There is no going back. Once the words are spoken, once the actions are complete, nothing can be removed. Your life can and WILL change immediately. In the blink of your eye, everything you know is gone. You are convicted… nothing is the same. Change.

It is with such conviction that I must inform you of your termination in this end of the company. I know it is not in your nature to accept such things as you think you are the very best, but it simply isn’t the case.

My eyes convict themselves of tyranny upon the reflection in my ruined mirror. Water stains in tiny, splashed circles mark the time I cried, but my eyes are far beyond that now. I’ve stopped crying.

Conviction? What is there to say? I’m convicted of being fake. Of being heartless and cruel. You should be convicted of claiming yourself the victim. Conviction? We all convict one another of something don’t we? I would rather live in a world of brutal honesty then fake fantasies. I’m convicted of being blunt. By who? Myself. If you want to know the truth you know who to go to. Why would you want to be told lies? Why would you want to fill your head with things that will never happen? I’m convicted of being honest. Sorry for believing what I do.

“Guilty.” The judge pounded his gavel. “I sentence you to 15 years in federal prison for the criminally insane.”
She just sat there and smiled.

Conviction can be a scary word. You could be convicted of a crime. However, you can also hold strong convictions. I like that use of the word better. I hold the conviction that people are inherently good. That the world is a good place despite all the fucked up things that happen in it.

She had a conviction. He still needed convincing.
Love was real.
They could last.
Everything would be just fine.
He didn’t know what a conviction was. But she was ready to spend the rest of her life convincing him.
By Kaylyn URL on 10.11.2011
She said it without conviction.
“I don’t care.”
For some reason, that hurt more than her anger, than her sadness. Her cold indifference was painful and left me wishing I had been better. Different.
It left me wishing it would all just end.

have you been convicted? do you need to change? i wish i was convicted, i wish i could accept things for what they are, except myself for who i am, and everyone else for what they are to me, and what i am to them. convict me.
By heather URL on 10.11.2011
people have to go to jail
conviction. quite honestly, i’m doing one of those things where i think i know what it means, but now i’m second guessing myself. so if i’m wrong, just fill in the blank with the word you think i mean. it’ll be a nice little guessing game for you.
i’ve been told i dance with conviction. or at least, i think that’s what they say. maybe that’s not the word they used….see aforementioned paragraph. but i think that’s a good thing to have in life…seize it by the scruff of the neck and just go with it. determination, drive, passion. if you carry those traits with you, you will become better at everything you do. fulfilled and full of life.
the end. i apologize for the nonsensical matter. i’m a bit exhausted. but it’s not like anyone will read it. or if you do….well then here you go.

If you were convicted, you’d be in trouble. About what exactly? I don’t know, You’d be the convicted one. The one in trouble who got caught and is under some kind of trial. It would be your fault. It is your fault, and because of you, I feel convicted to. Convicted of not being there for you, as if somehow, me being there could have affected your choices. Your choices which are yours. I couldn’t have affected them even if I wanted to.
By Ashton URL on 10.11.2011
conviction means to stand to your principles. Stand firm on what you believe regardless of what one person, or every person tells you is wrong with what you believe. It’s YOUR conviction, not theirs. When doubt creeps in, and it will, stop and be silent. Your heart will tell you if your convictions have changed.
By Michele on 10.11.2011
Her conviction wavered as she stared past the present into the wealth of work that had yet to be done. There was so little time in a life. Why was it that she consistently saw fit to waste it? Sacrificing so much on the alter of procrastination and receiving nothing but regrets in return. Something had to change.
By L. A. Smith URL on 10.11.2011
i was tired of it all. i need to do something. be someone! this cant go on forever. where’s the conviction? to have a better life? to live a better life!
By angeloboro URL on 10.11.2011
if you are convicted of murder then you will most likely go to jail and have a scary reputation of being the creepy guy that killed someone and chopped them into little pieces for dinner. if i was you i wouldn’t murder anyone.

She walked with a certain conviction that said she knew what she was doing and she stood by that decision. But that conviction was all an act; inside, she was trying to keep herself from falling apart. The events that had transpired over the last twenty-four hours had left her shaken and drained. She struggled to keep the effects from showing on her face, in her step. She couldn’t let anyone know something was off.

Conviction. Convicted? Was that one girl- the one in Italy, the Hayden Panettiere actress one convicted? What’s conviction. Where’s my dictionary….
By Ammi URL on 10.11.2011
He was convicted years ago, but even that small comfort didn’t do anything to keep him out of my dreams. Night after night, the face still leers out at me from that corner of my room. I don’t think I’ve truly slept since.
By an octopus URL on 10.11.2011
conviction is when someone tries to persuade an individual, and achieves its purpose. sometimes people try to convince for personal purpose, r for the benefit of the individual who has been persuaded. when you try to convince, you give all possible reasons backing up your ideals and your beliefs. never try to perjudice someone else through conviction. your morality might be in risk, and trust will be lost. someone who is convinced will automatically belief in that purpose, and should be able to convinve anyone else as well. why is life all about conviction? there are struggles and differences between all of us, and sometimes conviction is necessary to obtan mutal achievements, and meet mutual goals through negotiations and benefit of all.

“He didn’t do anything,” she said with conviction. “He didn’t do anything at all.”
By Faeiri URL on 10.11.2011
I had a conviction and I believed in it. I had a very passionate opinion and I was going to stick to it. No one could stop me. I was certain.
By Brittface URL on 10.11.2011
Just putting a thought into motion had landed him here. The accused.
He knew his fate. It weighed heavily on his shoulders, emptied his chest of emotion, he had no other thought but ‘this is what I deserve, what I wanted. I have no regrets’
The judge hit his gavel down, the mighty slam of wood on wood justice. It Hurt his ears,
Mary Catherine, a 20 year old irish nanny.
His throat in her hands.
A rosary around her neck.
His sentence on his own.
He had to bite his tongue to keep himself from laughing with joy. Death was coming, just for him.

such a source of passion, and fear. something both exciting and dreadful. what a thing to use and grow from. an incredible vessel for the self and the soul. sometimes i feel this is the only thing keeping me alive for all else is dead. nothing exists save for this drive, this determination, this love. the rest is secondary. you give me the encouragement, the will, the hope, the challenge. i cant wait to see where you take me. oh, where we will find ourselves when the horror and wonder have converged. when the mixed emotions of the past seem premature and silly. when the forces that are shaping us now are seemingly inconsequential. you are all that i am and my fulfillment will be the forming of our parts into one. one being. one entity. take me, all of me. we shall go where we will. i, you. us. me.
By unbornsymphony URL on 10.11.2011
is too definite. like a lock. can’t escape. determination. you can’t stray away from the path
By Reyna on 10.11.2011
and with the final *BANG* of the gave, his conviction was set into stone. now all that was left was to go back to his cell, ponder if the concrete he was leaning against woul deteriorate any faster for his having been there, maybe cry in self pity if he was feeling energetic enough, then await the governor’s word on when he would hear his pounding heart stop.
By JBlack URL on 10.11.2011
prisoner going to jail. mom abusing her child gets a conviction. Prison break the conviction for the guys brother is death. to be convicted for a crime.
By Petunia URL on 10.11.2011
wow, how do so many have no conviction? Society is blank. no passion, no fire. Where has it all gone? It has been absorbed into money, and making of it, and to power, and what we think it is. People who have no conviction, have no place in my life, nor in their own.
By Natalie URL on 10.11.2011
Say it ..if you are going to say it ..say it with conviction..say it like you mean it..only say it if you mean it..feel it..he said that shit with conviction..its becuase it is his..its because it is hers it is being owned..woww words of conviction.

I once was a boy. I was 12. A boy that was just like the other boys in my town. I played games, laughed, and cried. I wanted to fit in with all the other boys. It was the one thing i wanted most in my life. I would do anything to fit in. So i committed a crime on their request. I was in investigation for conviction for a murder. I once was a boy, now im a criminal.
By Christian Kenney on 10.11.2011
Speak every word with sincere conviction. Make people listen, make them want to hear more. You have more power than you might think with the simple sounds that come out of your mouth so make them count. Make your words beautiful, make your words mean, make them anything—just speak them with feeling, speak them with conviction.
By Teeps on 10.11.2011
i once had a bit of conviction. But it fades so fast in the mind under the heavy glare of a television or computer screen. It sinks in between the cracks of the couch like so many candy wrappers and coins. it gets lost like ones keys desperately trying to be unearthed.
