"Life isn't about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself."

Breaking the mold
Forgetting the lies I've been told
Facing the world on my own
Blocking out the sins I was shown

Searching for a hint of truth
Deteriorating the spirit of my youth
The pain is my own personal gain
No doubt an idealistic claim

Confronting the shame in humanity
With nothing to gain
I will find the strength to walk away
But today won't be that day

The author's comments:
Everyone tells us we can make a difference, do anything we want to do. But the truth is, it's not that easy. You must have true strength to leave an impact on this ignorant world.
