Inspiration Come To Me!
I don't want to think...
I WANT TO-BELIEVE!
I could sit here for hours,
I could sit here alone,
My brain might be here... but I need
You the most.
That feeling when you have writer's block.

Once, while I wandered in a ***** city,
Where the suffering of people goes unseen
I thought that there could be nothing pretty
But then, when looking up I saw a painting above me
Blue as innocent as a baby blue-bird
But as deep and soft as a still and gentle sea

Unmoving as the great large tapestries of kings draped in gold,
Surveying from above all the passersby
Who look from below then leave with a story still untold
And escape from sight with seldom even a heartfelt goodbye.
However, to be fair to the artist the beauty may lie in the fact
That most of the mysteries are still intact

As I stood watching the sky it turned into night,
The endless deep meaning hidden behind that familiar painting of day.
But I was too tired from a long work-day
to glean anything substantial from the display
The ambitious and unfortunate man’s plight
To finally see the measure of the world past the sky
Just when our lives have worn out our eyes

But eventually the sun rose to break
The heavy cover of darkness that I felt lasted too long
Our piece of art came again for the city when it stirred awake
And despite the suffering our world ended up bright once more
So now, oft when I am watching too many things turn out wrong
I simply look right above me,
an ever-present reminder that tomorrow morning,
there will be something beautiful that I have need to see

I told you how I felt
but you turned the other cheek
I was basically rejected
I feel so small, so very weak

I found the reason why I always keep to myself
I hate this feeling of pain
Of being rejected like I'm not good enough
This will happen never again

I'm tired of letting people in
I'm tired of being alone
I'm tired of being rejected and hurt
This is it that feelings have gone

I'm not gonna let you in
I'm not gonna let you see my tears fall
I'm not gonna let you see me hurt
I'm not gonna let you bring me down most of all

I told you how I felt
Because I wanted you to know
But apparently, you would never feel the same
So I guess its time for me to go
I know what its like...to be rejected, dejected. Only my story's different. He said he liked me too, and then he forgot me, like I was nothing. Loves a royal pain. it makes you thinks of the good times you have shared with that person and the more you think about it the more you cry... Tears come as I pray; but needless, even if the whole world forsakes me, God is still here with me, and that's all I'll ever need :") "He comforts us so we can comfort others", stay strong and press on everyone! Dm on instagram is open for those of you who are suffering or feeling depressed/need someone to talk to :)

If I could make a film,
It would have been on her life,
Because I have not seen someone more inspiring than my mother.

So many elements
Make up this man
Let me open up
Show all that I am
Take a little insecurity
Fill these eyes with some tears
Take a little fear
Sew them into this skin
If I'm gonna show it all
I need to let you see everything

Open up this heart
Cut it in half
Let all the love bleed out
Just so they have no doubt
All I've got is yours too hold
Take these hands filled with hope
Come inside my mind
Where you'll see all these
Dreams on display
Sometimes this Imagination
Runs away

There is passion
There is inspiration
There is motivation
There is faith
Stitched into the fabric of my being
Strength and hope, open your eyes
And you will see
All these things make up you and me

Sprinkle some hurt
To fill the drive
There's a little hate hidden inside
Kept in the dark corners of our mind
But I choose love, that is where I side
Opinions could fly out from these lips
But that would be counterproductive
I'm just trying to be me
The best I can be
I'm just trying to see
A world in which I can exist
And be proud of all I've accomplished.

Take a little anxiety
A pinch of crazy
Pour a little jealousy
Over me
All these little things
With some humanization
That adds up to this creation
I'll walk this world
Arms wide open
You'll see every inch of me
Nothing to hide
No disguise
No agenda in my eyes

There is passion
There is inspiration
There is motivation
There is faith
Stitched into the fabric of my being
Strength and hope, open your eyes
And you will see
All these things make up you and me.

Sprinkle some hurt
To fill the drive
There's a little hate hidden inside
Kept in the dark corners of our mind
But I choose love, that is where I side
Opinions could fly out from these lips
But that would be counterproductive
I'm just trying to be me
The best I can be
I'm just trying to see
A world in which I can exist
And be proud of all I've accomplished.

Take a little self-control
Inject some humour into my soul
Drink down some bravery
Fill my warrior spirit
through a dance
Filled with fire
Fill these eyes with starlit skies
Feel power building inside
A determination to be great
Finding a way to new heights
Through freedom, Through flight
This is so raw, This is so real
You're inheriting all that I feel.

There is passion
There is inspiration
There is motivation
There is faith
Stitched into the fabric of my being
Strength and hope, open your eyes
And you will see
All these things make up you and me.

Sprinkle some hurt
To fill the drive
There's a little hate hidden inside
Kept in the dark corners of our mind
But I choose love, that is where I side
Opinions could fly out from these lips
But that would be counterproductive
I'm just trying to be me
The best I can be
I'm just trying to see
A world in which I can exist
And be proud of all I've accomplished.

Honesty soaks into my skin
Revealing truths
Layed out before your sights
And it comes as no surprise
All of these acts that take the stage
Are giving there all
No time for questioning
No time for dismay
Only came to display all it is they can be
With each opportunity that came there way
With belief in their talents shown
Audiences left with their minds blown

There is passion
There is inspiration
There is motivation
There is faith
Stitched into the fabric of my being
Strength and hope, open your eyes
And you will see
All these things make up you and me

Sprinkle some hurt
To fill the drive
There's a little hate hidden inside
Kept in the dark corners of our mind
But I choose love, that is where I side
Opinions could fly out from these lips
But that would be counterproductive
I'm just trying to be me
The best I can be
I'm just trying to see
A world in which I can exist
And be proud of all I've accomplished.

Soul of a flower
So beautiful
So sweet
Photons rain on you
Dirt is no match
Creatures adore
Spreading your love
Respecting your wild ways
All while it’s just you
Being you
So inspiring
Was that really you?
I hope...

The moment you find the beauty in all the adversity in facing your own thoughts

I’m myself when I’m with me
when I’m being the version of myself
i truly am
i truly like
im me when I’m hanging out
with this beautiful and inspiring human being
the version of myself
that makes me wanna be my own friend
that makes me wanna spend the whole night watching friends
the one that makes me enjoy the best things in life
im myself when im with me

Dear Mr. Nobody,

you don’t know who I am.
I don’t know who you are
But you wonder who I am, don’t you.

I am nobody, and somebody
just like you.

we are both atoms among atoms
like everyone else
Stars, sprinkled across a vast, deep galaxy
We are humans on Earth

Have you ever wondered, Mr. Nobody,
if we were a mistake?
We aren’t
Every one of us was born on Earth for a reason
To make a difference
To be a difference

Have you ever wondered if life was
pointless
That we were just wasting away,
Trying to make the world a better place,
while knowing that the world will sometime end?
Wondered if we should just give up

Have you ever wondered why you were in a comfortable house,
with a family
Food
and all you need
While others starved
unloved and forgotten
in the shadows.
wondered why life is so unfair.

Have you ever wondered if God was real
why He never spoke to us
Wondered why he used to talk to people, and now doesn’t.
Wondered why he lets us suffer

Have you ever wished for more, Mr. Nobody?
More than what you have
more than what you need
Greed viruses us.
The hunger for more.
The craving.

Do you ever think about the future?
Of course you do.
Everyone does.
How long your daily commute’s going to be tomorrow
What your next big project will be
When you’re going to meet up with an old friend
If you’re going to get a new job a couple years from now
If you’re going to move
What you’re life might be like decades from now
Wonder how your kids are going to grow up.
Wonder what college they’ll go to
Wonder what you’re going to do when they’re gone
Wonder when you’re going to die.
Wonder how you’re going to die.

And why, you may be wondering,
why I am writing to you?
You shouldn’t wonder though
Isn’t it obvious
The answer lies before you:

I am writing because I can.
I am writing to make you feel uncomfortable.
I am writing for you to think about the world.
I am writing to
I am writing to make you feel ALIVE.
Think about it, Mr. Nobody.
About these thoughts.
Doesn’t the human mind always ponder these?
The quest to know who you are.
While the whole time,
the answer lies in

YOU.

Think about it.

Mr. Nobody.

Think about it.

Sincerely,

___

yes, set fire to my books
and give me a lecture instead.
do you really believe that
conditioning creates
great people?

no, they all made themselves,
just as i have forged
my own matter
by pressing my ashes
into the ground.

diamonds are just coal,
after all.

i have this strange fascination with space;
it's infinite.
there's so much left to find;
it's mysterious.
all these natural phenomena broaden my mind;
it's inspiring.
and yet, no one really understands it;
it's confusing.

i have this strange fascination with the ocean;
it's infinite.
there's so much left to find;
it's mysterious.
all these creatures broaden my mind;
it's inspiring.
and yet, no one really understands it;
it's confusing.

i have this fear of the unknown;
it's terrifying.
there's so much no one knows;
it's unsettling.
all of this mystery makes my heart hammer;
it's petrifying.
and yet, i still love the ocean and space;
it's amazing.
is it bad i actually feel a connection with the moon?
