Favorite Quote:
"You don't have a soul. You are a soul. You have a body" - C. S. Lewis

All the people look around and wonder
How did we break this eternal slumber
Society's blindfold draped over our eyes
Don't you know they are all lies
Stop blinking, stop wincing, and open up wide
Can't you see it's beautiful outside
No hatred, no anger, only knowledge and love
It's not hard you people, you just need a good shove
Perception is the key to open this lock
As life passes by with a tick and a tock

I was laying in bed listening to The Doors and burning "I feel happy" incense with the lights off when I wrote this... good source of inspiration
