Why Are You Getting So Angry?

well, do you ever wonder
what it's like to be
just a scribble of pen
in someone's calendar?

that's how you make me feel.

Why Do You Look Away When I Look At You?

if i see your eyes
staring at mine,
i'm afraid we won't feel the same
that you won't long for me
the same way i long for you

so i keep safe:
i stop before I fall
the way I did before.

How Do I Cope With What They Did To Me?

when you feel like you're in hell,

to find water.

just remember,
the devil's water
will make you sick.

How Do I Become A Hero?

when your words
have become magic spells
that mend broken hearts,

when your fingers
have become magic wands
that comfort those in pain,

when you can fly
so you can reach
the furthest and weakest hands,

when you become invisible
so your pride
can never be fed,

then you have become a hero.

Why Is The World So Boring?

when's the last time
you looked straight up
at the sky?

when's the last time
you stopped your life
and stood in awe of it all?

when's the last time
you quit talking
and actually listened?

when's the last time
you gave the world
a chance?

Why Am I Different?

you've broken free,
chosen not to follow,
but to lead.

be vigilant
for others will follow you
into unwinnable battles.

they will be your very strength
and you, theirs.

but winning isn't so important
when having people who believe in you
is the truest victory of all.

has only one window of opportunity.

What Difference Do My Decisions Make To The People Around Me?

our lives are not our own.

for every decision we make
there are people we affect.

some wonder,
"should i do that too?"

others will laugh with you
or cry with you
depending on the
weight of your decisions
and which direction
that weight is headed.

Is There Anyone I Can Hold On To?

no matter what or who
or how or why
there will always be someone
right there with you
making sure you don't drown.
even in these high waters.

all you have to do
is call out for help.

Am I Free? Have I Finally Escaped?

sometimes when you escape
the sky you see is really
the same bars in disguise.

How Long Can We Keep This Fire In Our Hearts?

for as long as the fire
is given
from candle
to candle,
the fire will never burn out.

How do I get out of here?

when something blocks the way
to living your life
you must break free from it
and never once think
that you made the wrong choice.

Why Doesn't Anyone Care About the Earth?

because we can't let go.

we will one day
when the tables turn
and the earth forces us
to let go of everything
that we think is necessary.

be patient.
it will be soon.

Why Can't I Let Go?

you have to move on from the things that are bad for you
even if it means letting the good go with them.

then again, some things are never meant to leave.
