why are we here on this planet full of everything amazingly wonderful to everything, ferociously terrible, the majority of people can't stand it, but go on because they are afraid god will damn them, afraid of what he calls sin, this power controls the weak men, who like to keep the light dim, I am not one of them, some run away from life like it’s a horrible monster, u grab her hand and never try to make a stand, now you have lost her in the suffocating quick sand, franticly looking for stable land some people want it all but are bound to fall, but can only crawl, they should have seen it was too tall as it cracks while all you can do is call... no one...some drift on by without any tide, just follow the flow without any direction to go, until they finally sink to low and there is no more, except for the ones knocking on their door right before they hit the floor, it shutters your existence down to the core. Then you have me who likes to follow my own direction, who believes in no deception, or corruption, I form my own function...true honesty will never fall short of happiness, unless there’s a lack of loyalty you need to confess, the truth is the best, unless a broken heart is what you want to lay to rest, life is full of tests, make the right choices and ignore the evil voices you might end up blessed, for me I’m still waiting, contemplating, consolidating, recently fading, feeling like all the good is deflating, but as long as I keep my flow in the direction I want to go, stop to take the time to listen to the wind blow, I just might one day know, but for the times like these there’s no need to get down on your knees, just keep in mind your dreams and passions, something of yours that really means, and grab hold and prove to yourself you can be fluent like water in a gentle stream, life is and unexplained unpredicted scene of random events made up of choices, make good choices, consider other people, they do have voices, have fun and be happy or misery will sneak up quick, so find your passion or something to strive for and never quit, but if you don’t, your puzzle piece of life may never fit, and your happiness will crumble bit by bit, hold the things you love in your heart, do this and what you cherish will never slip. it’s the divine holding them with the almighty grip, one last tip, open your mind and let yourself commit to the Light and Love, Serenity and bliss, make a wish and look life in the eye and blow it a kiss for it is our greatest gift
