Favorite Quote:
1. Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone else's opinions, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation.
2. You wear a mask for so long, you forget who you were beneath it.
3. You see, madness, as you know, is like gravity, all it takes is a little push.

We are all craving a spark
A dim speck of light
Whatever it may be
To tell us what’s right

But nothing ever comes
We sit day after day
Waiting and waiting
Slowly fading to gray

And one day we wake up
Know it doesn’t exist
And we waste all this time
And near end you are pissed

But you sit and you wonder
Why regret what I did
I am who I am
And I’m no longer a kid

I have control over me
And what goes around
I can either stand up
Or live on the ground

Live each day as an experience
Every moment, something to cherish
Because in the end of your life
The time you spent waiting will perish

And every time that it rains
You sat there inside
Thinking “nothing to do”
“The rain will subside”

But that’s not what life is
You have to attack it and win
You don’t know what it could have been

So we sit here and wait
Like there’s a light in that dark
But our eyes will adjust
Forget about that spark

One of my favorite uplifting pieces. Childish, but I think it can be appreciated.
