Favorite Quote:
There's nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and open a vein. ~Walter Wellesley Smith


Childhood is suddenly fading away.
New choices and decisions must be made.
Our friends lose hope of innocence
and follow lies and lives of disobedience.

Pressure of every kind surrounds,
and deteriorating souls of friends abound.
Left and right those we love
fall while we struggle to stay above.

Our loved ones fall and fade away
into the world and their ways.
Pressure takes them from the start
until all that's left is broken hearts.

Giving in to the world is what's easy.
Giving in to their lies, people pleasing,
Gaining the approval of the world
while losing their souls, becoming unfurled.

Deep within there's a stronger power
to live above the world which devours.
If we look, we will find strength
to live a life, go the greater length.

Our loved ones fall and fade away
into the world and their ways.
Pressure takes them from the start
until all that's left is broken hearts.

Look deep inside and search it through
to find what really makes you, you.
Drugs, alcohol, sex and all
Is that who you are? It's your call.

I hope what's found is something more
something to hope, to truly live for.
There's more to life than being a part
living of the world, and losing your heart.

A power is buried deep inside
to help you live, to help you fight
against the pressures the world gives,
to be above, to truly live.

You don't have to fall and fade away
into the world and their ways.
Pressure won't take you from the start
and leave you with a broken heart.


The author's comments:
I've recently seen a lot of stuff about the Above The Influence program and was inspired to write this about living above the influence. It's something I strongly believe in not only practicing myself, but encouraging other to do as well.
