See lyrics to "Let the Waters Rise" by MIKESCHAIR and "Everything" by Lifehouse


it is said, to understand someone
you must walk a mile in their shoes
so walk a mile in my combat boots
i'm fighting for my beliefs
where left is right and right is wrong
and sometimes it's hard to believe
walk a mile in my combat boots
i'm fighting for my self-image
against every advertisement
and photoshop-perfect model
walk a mile in my combat boots
i'm fighting for a purpose
when everything is relative
and anything is everything and everything is nothing
walk a mile in my combat boots
i'm fighting for my identity
because everybody has a different idea
of who i'm supposed to be
walk a mile in my combat boots
i'm fighting to be understood
by people who don't know
that even i don't understand me
walk a mile in my combat boots
i'm fighting for my friends
who have battles of their own
so they don't have to fight alone
so do you know me
walk a mile in my combat boots

This poem is amazing. I know people who go through struggles like this everyday. Everyone tries to be different nowadays, and end up being the same. My favorite quote is,"I'm fighting for my self-image
against every advertisement
and photoshop-perfect model."
