Think what you think Do what you will No one will wait until What has already been Achieved By the dreamers Pursuing their passions Because doing anything That one wants Characterizes Lack of character While nobility Makes characters Own their own Narratives Narrate, if you will
Only in Name
Give me a name Make me a knight Give me a title But reputations Are actually skewed perceptions Of human identity Share instead of compare
Held in the hand Sometimes being ambidextrous Create with human hands Instead of harm and destroy For the world needs Uniformity Starting from Within And link the people on Earth Hand-in-hand Hold on!
Majestic mountains Mystical, Magical, rebirth Phoenixes rising above ashes Build upon the land Earthly soil Soiled Is not necessarily Dirty Because Getting dirty takes effort To help all that exists on Earth
“Lights out” Suggests bedtime Yet light Is very symbolic For life Truth And Reality And within modern Modernity It is more important Than ever before To let Individualized light Radiate Before darkness Overtakes All that does not glow So grow And show The world Who we are
Royalty might be Spectacular, but true men Are real gentlemen
Being tired is Normal, but the wheels do spin For the ones who try
