Why does no one else see
The old man crying on the street
The child that has fallen down
Our world is so desperately in need
Of love, of the ability to see
Our world is blinded by power
We look up to those that tower
No one notices those who fall
It isn't fair at all
They say lets make the world a better place
But lets make it a race
Who can get the most publicity
That will help the world, they see
No
It really won't, love should be first
Power, money, wealth
They've changed to be worth more than health
Than love, the dream that can fix all cracks
Money at best is a piece of tape
But love is super glue
Use your eyes!
See with your heart and your soul

Masquerade
We dance a dance of lies
Each of us with our own surprise
We wear a mask so they don't see
Who we are, who we were, who we will be
A never ending masquerade
That's what we've made our life
One person stands out in the crowd because they show it all
How they fly after they fall
They're unlike us so we knock them down
Making sure their feet will never leave the ground
We've cracked something so pure
And we aren't even sure
We offer them their mask
They cling to it like glue
It becomes who they are, it controls what they do
All of this time
As we dance the masquerade
We wait for someone to come to our aid
To see who we really are
Because we have buried it so far
We wait for them to see the inside
For them to fix the cracks
But it is us, its what we lack
We lack the confidence to stand out
To show who we are, to be proud
To let everyone see our flaws
Because that is beauty
Stand up, stand strong
It won't be long
Our mask will fall off
Then we will see
How wonderful it is to just be you and to just be me

We walk along the stepping stones
Hoping we won't fall
We whisper to each other to stand tall
It's so much easier to follow
Then it is to lead
But it's also so much easier to believe
We live in a day where we do nothing
We follow the news
We believe it to be true
We have smartphones to think for us
Apps to create and remember
The worlds actions used to be with heart
Now they fall apart
Do we mean the words we say
Or is it just custom from the world of yesterday
We highlight the voice that wants to be heard
What about the people behind the scene, not saying a word
One thought, one movement, one action can make us believe anything
We never use our brains!
Our stepping stones will sink
We'll let go
Stand for what is right, even if you have to alone
I'd rather be me
Than you, him or her
Believe what I believe
Than what they state with cunning words
I'd rather fall by myself, then be the downfall of a nation
No more zombies following
Go, go to your calling

"Why do you write?"
That's like asking a bird why it flies, a flower why it grows, an animal why it lives. It does simply because it's a destiny.
"Writing is not a destiny. That's unpractical."
Why do you breathe if you know you will die? That's not your question, that's your answer.

:3 Bueller's Day Off. It's a movie. That's where "Bueller? Bueller?" comes from. Ever see the guy that does the irritated eyes commercial? The guy with the monotone voice does that scene.

Hey Jj.

Just curious, where do you get inspiration for your writing from? Do you retain it from personal experiences or do you just place your mind in a different state if you know what I mean? I used to have a really tough life with my family at home and a tough time at school so all of my pain in my writing came through in that sense. Yours is pretty deep though!

It's mostly from personal experiences or close friends experiences. I find that I feel emotions quite easily, whether they be mine or somebody's elses. But I try to hide my emotions. Thank you though for saying that I'm deep, it means a lot :)
