be who you are because the ones that care dont matter and the ones matter dont care


I see a thousand faces
Each one a stranger to me
But look closely
And you shall see what I mean

A thousand mirrors are here
A thousand pieces to this puzzle
And I only know where one goes
But that piece is the one missing

A thousand lives found dead
A thousand hearts found crushed
And two thousand eyes I found shed tears
A thousand mask found to hide

A thousand of those mask torn to shreds
A thousand pills I see
And where this all goes
How could anyone know
For no one else is here but me

No one sees
So no one cares
That's the way the saying goes
A thousand faces have shown that true

There's an empty shadow
A holding place for one
Fulfill it would you?
Or leave it empty

Do you not see
This is what's hurting me
You pushing yourself away
Lived my life with that I have already

A thousand questions asked
A thousand answers given
But a thousand questions aren't enough
And a thousand answers aren't right

Expect the unexpected.
Life will always through you curves. Just keep fouling them off. The right pitch will come. And when it does, be prepared to run the bases.
