IT DOES NOT REQUIRE A COLLEGE DEGREE OR A NEW CAR
TRUE LOVE CANNOT BE BOUGHT OR RENTED OR SOLD

IT DOES NOT CLING TO YOU IF YOU OWN A MILLION DOLLAR BALL TEAM
OR PLAY FOR ONE

Mirror, mirror

Standard

When I look in the mirror, I see

Someone looking back at me.

From a mirror realm through the looking glass,

I see this tired old man with a sad and lonely past.

These were not the things I had hoped to see when I went to look in the mirror at me.

 

Revolution #artforfreedom

Standard

You say you want a #revolution.

You say you want to #change the #world.

Are you willing to do whatever it takes

To #free every boy and girl?

#100,000 voices are crying out.

Can you hear them call?

Injustice has become the norm

At the damnation of us all.

You say you want a bold #new world

Where everyone is free.

You say you will do anything

To be all you can be.

To bring about this new age

Some people have to change.

Hypocrisy must go away

And never come back again.

but I don’t see it

I am no one
nothing special
never have been

just a hacker
trapped in a world
where i do not belong

not the one
not now
not ever
