Me Against The World ( Lyric )

Most of my life

Has been impressing others

Only ending being blamed

Gone out of my way

To be shoved aside
Me against the world

When I was down on the ground

They walked right over me

Without a care in their thoughts

Why should I waste my time on them?
Making everybody happy

Impossible to even try

Sooner or later

The ones you would of died for

Will eventually leave
Me against the world

When I was down on the ground

They walked right over me

Without a care in their thoughts

Why should I waste my time on them?
How many days and nights

Spent crying from hopelessness

The pain and suffering I’ve felt

Was nothing but entertainment

Enjoying my torment, misery
Me against the world

When I was down on the ground

They walked right over me

Without a care in their thoughts

Why should I waste my time on them?


Looking at my life

It has changed dramatically

Feels like two different lives

Sharing the same body and mind

Perhaps unaccepting of the other
I can’t helped but compare

Trying to figure out the changes

Which version of me was better

Maybe it’s not an improvement 

Perhaps worser than before
My younger years zoomed by

Everything was done in a hurry

Never known to be patient

Always rushing somewhere

Enjoying, perhaps a little too much
All the things which gone unnoticed

Didn’t have the time to identify

What were important to me

Self absorbed and naive 

Too much daring for my own good
Now been much older

I tend to over think things

Seems my self confidence has gone

Along with my courage and daring

Resulting in nothing being done
To be continue

Forever Years

Dusts blown away

Carried along by the wind

Erasing traces of lives

Evidence, saying we were here

Blown away throughout time
Rainfalls, washing away

Proof that we once existed

Finishing wind’s left overs

Footprints of those from yesterday

Left imprinted in the sands; forgotten
In a hundred years from now

Others shall walk the same paths

Without knowing there were others

Sharing the same feelings and pain

Experiencing similar problems
Life, doesn’t last long

Never seems to be enough

No matter how hard we tried

Unfair, leaving those behind

To walk through life alone

Power Of Words

Motivation, inspirational

Harmful; destructive effects

Words are neutral

Applied by ones intentions

Uplifting or deflating
Historically proven

Rise and fall of nations

Direct results by words

Affecting the hearts and souls

Awakening something within
Sometimes spoken in anger

Heat of the moment, emotional

Untrue yet devastating

Lasting, lingering awhile

Perhaps; never disappearing 
Power to create or destroy

Words for which we communicate

Lay deeper than is known

Unleashing hidden potentials

Far beyond any wild imagination

Letter To Self 13/10/2016

Dear self,

It’s been ages since you’ve written to yourself. Been too busy ha? Or perhaps writing to yourself is a lil strange?

Anyways, you’re forgetting to unload your emotions, keeping it pent up inside again. You don’t wanna lose control again and explode do you? Release.

There are thinking beyond your control, stressing out about it wouldn’t change a thing. Even though you’re terrified of what may or may not happen. Death comes to us all eventually, just make the most of whatever time is remaining. Especially to those that matters, they need you more than ever, probably more scared than you are. Suck it up soldier, be there and be their strength like always.

You’ve recently became official, being published for the first time. Not self published, but a real literature journal. So, I think you must start acting like a poet and grow your beard long and wearing long ancient robes. It suits you I think. As long as no one sees you at least.

Can’t believe it’s almost the end of the year. It’s gone by so quickly ha? Your just old now, who writes letters to himself. Insane much?

I almost forgot, reply back to those that took their time, to even bother taking their time commenting. Stop being such a jerk.




People say life is grand

A gift from heavenly divine

To be enjoyed every day

I truly wonder if they knew

Or believed those words themselves
People say life is beautiful

Filled with wonder and awe

Without any doubts at all

They’d been through their share

Of hardships and struggles
People say, only positive things

Leaving darkness where it deserves

Perhaps pain is too raw to bare

Leaving opened wounds alone

Creating an aura of illusions around
People say many things

Which may not make sense then

Understood later on in time

Everyone has their own story 

To share or not? Simply up to them
