“When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace.”


A heart so pure
So full of love
Like an Angel
From up above

That’s how I began
With a heart of gold
Now the same story
Cannot be told

“You’re Perfect!” they say
So rare and kind
But that dark cloud
Is sneaking up from behind

I try not to go through
that tempting evil door
But my heart always ends up
splattered on the floor

In shattered little pieces
And every time it gets repaired
The pieces may be back together
But the scars are still there

Every blow to the head
Every consecutive heartbreak
Makes me think that being “good”
Is just one huge mistake

With every disappointment
I feel myself slipping away
All my vibrant love and feelings
Are turning into this darkening grey

Maybe someone will really see
How rare and precious I really am
Maybe one day in the future
I will be looked at as a gem

Maybe one day someone will save me
Before I completely slip away
Maybe I won’t turn to the dark
But, that day, is not today...

I like this captain. its like "I will not fade away to the darkness,....sike." freakin awesome. I am loving stanza 4 and 5 and the two first lines from stanza 6. It would be conducive for you to do your dance at the time which is now.
