we're sick of liars and thieves and crooks. we're sick of shallow smiles and petty pleasantries. hypocrisy is rampant and the offended are everywhere. we want so many things. we want love. we want trust. we want a chance. we want to dig up hope from the hole it's hiding in and ****** it to the world. "if you can't do it for yourself, do it for them". the empyrean is real. i've seen it. it's right over the hill; but we can only get there together running hand in hand, as fast as we can. because we're sick and tired of feeling sick and tired. we're ready and we're reaching. we want to live.

We are capable of so much more and we know it. Yet, we spend all our time fighting for a golden crown; as if that's all that ever made a king.
