change for the better (Remove filter)


Before I left

I checked myself in the mirror.

Made sure I am wearing my smile 

Bight red on my chapped lips,

Concealing the blood streaks

trapped around the corners.

I am not fine. 
I am filled full empty. 
I am heavy. 

I am hope

Woe is I who is not fine 
for I cannot define me. 

Only in death will I rise. 

I had to die to realise 
to be reborn 
to come anew. 

I kill the self 
I don’t wish to be. 
I kill the self.

What a night 

changed my whole perspective 

tiny square piece of paper

dissolves on my tongue 

hours of deep thought 

time filled with colors and laughter 

the world is big 



I’m just a kid 

someday I’ll have to wear a suit like my pop 

pay the tax man 


stand the picket line 

I just wanna get laid 

drink beer

Brave people take control and change their lives.

Stuck in a boring job, just for the money.

Stuck in a loveless marriage, just for the kids.

Stuck with a knackered old car, falling to bits.

It’s up to you to make happiness and change your life.
