I'll write a poem and leave it on your door
so you have something to smile about.
I'l take my loaf of bread and cut it in half
so you have something to eat.
I'll give you a sip of my coffee
so you can greet the morning sun.

No one should be alone in the dark.

I'll give you my sneakers
if you give me yours
so you can show me your side of the story
and I can show you mine.

I know life can be pretty rough.
Angels use their wings
to cover each other from the rain.
I have a hoodie,
I hope that's enough.

Buddha told me to tell you:
"Hello, bonito.
This spring is going to have cielos azules."
I have a couple dollars in my pocket.

Let me buy you a Coca-Cola.
Share it with someone you love.
Who knows, maybe they need it more than you.
I'm just thankful we got to talk.

You have done some things you are not proud of.
What'd happen If I told them?
What'd happen if they knew?
You were young, you were angry,
you were horrible, you were everything you hate now.

You hurted so many people
and disappeared.
Why did you do it?
Why would you take your pain
and put it on someone else?

It was not her fault she didn't love you.
It wasn't his fault. He couldn't know.

Yes, you were a mess,
but that's no excuse.
No, you can't change the past.
I don't even know If "I'm sorry" would be enough.

You couldn't love
cause you didn't know how to love yourself.
You thought hate
was your only weapon against the world.

Will she accept your apologies
or will she act is if she doesn't know you
the way that you did?

Will he forgive you
or forget
just like you?

You were full of poison and you killed many flowers
on your way here.
What are we gonna do, Jude?

I'll light a candle for us
and I'll try to be a better man.
It's all I can do
that'll bring a change.

Sometimes, I'm just tired.
It's not very much fun, but I do.
Sometimes I'm just sad.
It's not very much fun, but I do.
Sometimes I'm angry and hurt.
It is what it is.

Once or twice I thought about the end.
The moment when all troubles go away.
It's a scary thought to have
when you are all by yourself.

What do you do
when you feel you can't move?

It can be so heartbreaking to feel you've given your all,
yet your all is not enough.

But I am still here;
though sometimes I cry,
I think there's nothing more wonderful than life.

Cause you are here,
you, in your perfect way,
you, who have cried as much as me
yet smile the same wether there's sun or there's rain.

You give me hope,
that peace of mind
is a thought away.
Haven't been around here in a while. I hope all of you are alright <3

Don't cry
We are angels waiting to fly.
Our wings will grow one day.

All this **** in the world right now, let me tell you,
It gets harder and harder to feel anything,
And we wonder why kids are breaking down,
Crying in the dark;
It's cause society is blind.

We were sold a lie.
Don't you see
You've been brainwashed too?
We were told it's survival of the fittest
So we decided to **** each other up.

How the **** can we call each other human
When we've forgotten about compassion?

I'm telling you right here, right now,
You're my brother,
You're my sister,
You don't have to feel alone.
We the broken
Need to keep each other company.

Here's my hand,
Reach for it.
It doesn't matter to me
What you've said or done.
You're not your mistakes,
You're not your worst moment,
You're not the bad you've done.

I don't care for likes or digital hearts;
I'm here to speak to the soul of those without a home,
To the kid who killed himself the other day
Cause everybody told him he was on his own,
To the poets who put pain to paper
Cause it's too much for their hearts.

We can't save the world,
That's a doomed proposition,
But we have to save the people.
I'm so tired of seeing beautiful flowers
Die in the winter.

You can tell the world is ending,
It takes a window to notice.
What's the use
of writting love poems, then?

We write love poems
because love won't save us,
but someone oughta save love.

One day
///// our scars will heal.
One day
///// our broken hearts will be mended.
One day
///// we won't have to cry at night.
One day
///// everything will be alright.
One day
///// we'll know the colour of the sky.

Don't despair,
///// it will come.
Maybe not tomorrow, but soon.

Until then,
///// come a little closer;
cause lonely people shouldn't be alone.
