I am just another freckle on the earth.
A scar faded to the bottom of your heart.
Easily forgettable just like an echo among the crowd.
I am merely another human with voiceless vocals and heart filled cries.

Just another speck of dust compared to the stars above.
Just another child who's had dreams crushed.
Just another soul who plans to find a way to stop the madness that is
going on around us each and every day.

One day when I disappear and mend with the earth you may not even know.
You are a stranger who lives a life somewhere unknown.
I do not know my future or what I will do, if my works will be noticed or if their
intentions will disappear too.

All I have ever known is destruction and hate but I have vowed to change things.
We are built on love but as each day goes on things appear to be broken and we
just cover it up with plastic.
Plastic is all we are these days.
I promise I will change that.
I will bring the fire and melt away the plastic cover-ups which hide the truth.
I will extinguish burning hate.
I will remove your sunglasses so you can see how bright love can be.

I am invisible and I blend with the trees.
But my soul is colorful and cannot go unseen.
There is beauty in my heart and happiness in my life.
I will not give up on changing the world without a fight.
