I'm trying to find different ways
to bridge the gaps that cause so much hate and pain.
Iā€™m trying to learn how to sweeten soured hearts,
defeat the shadows that have cowered
all those I know who used to want to grow
but not just go with the flow.

The world has taken all the notes I used to love
and jumbled them up, creating discord,
but I am trying to find the right cord,
write the right line in a new chorus,
to help humans explore what makes us
something more than just flesh that becomes dust.

I am trying to not die before I
have done something decent with this one life.
