I'm trying to believe that this life will be alright..
I'm trying to do the right things to keep from feeling contrite.
I'm trying to lead my life differently than i did before.
I'm trying to walk out the now blazing, burning down door.
Yes, I'm burning down that house.
I'm burning down that bridge and I'm done with all this grouse.
I'm trying to change my life for the better.
I don't want to be the same, i want to be the trend setter.
I want to change the world, because it needs it.
I want everyone to shine and not just the ones who lead it.
There's so much beauty in this world but we don't take the time to see it.
There are beautiful people and buildings and towns.
There are so many worlds within worlds and so many frowns.
I believe in people not because i really think we can fix this.
I believe in people because i believe slowly we can fix US. 
See, because we are the problem and the solution.
We are the destruction, death and pollution.
All I see is crap on facebook, twitter and instagram.
People trying to make it look like their lives are so fair and so grand. 
Instead of doing something useful with their lives,
their shitty legacy continues, it survives. 
Sadly duck faces and angry news is all we get to see. 
I support America is a very common theme.
But when was the last time you did something other than just post a meme?
Believe me i'm guilty like the next person but why don't we take a moment to disconnect.
Shut this shit off with the hit of a button and maybe hit accept instead of freakin reject.
Get off your ass and do something to help someone.
Enjoy the company of a real person, and maybe you connect and have some real fun. 
People need each other to keep going and keep fighting.
Maybe just maybe we can start rewriting
Rewrite our own legacy and change the way we act.
Maybe we can fill the gaps and the holes where our elders lacked.
