Favorite Quote:
When the power of love overcomes the love of power the world will finally know peace- James "jimi" hendrix.


What in this world do we see
Our eyes are blind to the truth
Only few see what happens
So much right in front of our eyes
though yet we do nothing
Hunger,War,Poverty,refugees,DEATH
Though we still sit back
relax in our cushioned chairs
As others fight to live
to eat
to keep their children breathing
Will we continue to sit back
and just watch the world slowly rot away
Or will we finally be
The ones
To stand up
And give those their right
to be free,fed,free,safe

ALIVE
