I symbolize all that is right and just....
All that is worthy and obedient....
I am the voice you follow,
I am the thoughts that linger, when you're up all night

I am your conscience breaking free
Moving through the universe with no purpose
GOD does not exist in desperation
But leads in serenity

Light only penetrates the darkness that is already there.
And I am already there
Where the trees grow taller than the buildings
Where a smile is not just a greeting
But, as a picture, worth a thousand words

Here.. I am me
There, I am your vision
Your, perception of what is and what could be
Never noticing me
Just a depiction of what you think you see

“The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world think he didn’t exist” (Usual Suspects)
But I exist;
Some can not resist the temptation of society’s habits
As society shows no regrets, pulling people in like whirlpools
Amidst their lives, they leave their nest
Searching for that final place to rest
