    Forget The Past

    No mountain is too steep, to bring you out of the heap. Just lay your cares on the ground, and soon after you will be found. Inside your head used to be a war, the tears of the past is no more. Now you can rejoice about life, and put down that sharp knife. Love the person you are...

    just to save a life And If you want to be famous Are you wiling to pay the price

    The air is cold around me Your soothing voice

    surrounds me The color of the darkest night The lonely hearts reach across the sky and why The trees sway with the breeze We find our way with ease I see the light which is your love We know our journey has only just begun.

    As seen through clouded eyes; A world full of

    wonder. Never truly seen, Stuck always somewhere in between. A false representation of a subjective experience. What is beauty to a blind man?

    I Met Myself On The Street Today

    I met myself on the street today, I was looking rather pale. My eyes were red, my hair unwashed, I didn't look too well. I tried to find the courage, To ask me what was wrong. I've known myself for quite some time now, We used to get along. He looked at me with anger, I've never...
