"It's better to be hated for who you are than to be loved for what you are not."





~Luara Moncur


Despite what the crowd does, despite what they say
I'm going to walk this road my way,
In the light
And not in the shadows of the night,
I'll be a person constantly high-
High on my dreams to become something worthwhile,
And no matter how low in the world those others get
My goals will stay right above it...
That doesn't mean I'm any better
It just mean I look toward a brighter future.

Any day you can find me
Living off somewhere in my dreams
Dreams that are made possible cause I'm staying clean.

I'm looking toward the light that's why I got my shades on
And as long as I'm staying above it they're going to stay on,
Tomorrow looks so great
Because today is so bright,
My friends only know the sadness
So I want to share the happiness,
That kind that comes from BEING you
And not the STUFF that you do.

Any day you can find me
Living off somewhere in my dreams
Dreams that are made possible cause I'm staying clean!

Man never could I be as happy
If I was caught up in the things that'll destroy me,
I look around-
Man this whole world is going to drown!
But before I let my friends go down
I'm going to shout (*SHOUT*)
Man there's a better way out!
I'll grab them by the hand and leave the way of this earth
Cause you'll never be happy unless you stay above it!


The author's comments:
I wrote this poem to show the world there is a better way than drugs and alcohol and all the other stuff that people think make you happy. I got the title because I was thinking on the commercials for Above the Influence.
