Society tried to trap me,

Mon, 05/30/2016 - 03:56 -- GPaknis

Society tried to trap me, trick me.

Laid out a treacherous trail.  But I'm wiser,

I'm learning,

on my best days im a man of soul and on my worst, only human,

only growing every day

only wishing for more connection on this planet,

for sunnier days.

So who's with me?

Raise your hand if you praise the sky and know no limits

Cause life isn't here to pass us by.  

It's here to live out loud and love proud.  

Tell that person you've been I dreaming of them late at night

Cause if it's your truth then it's the truth, and it's your right

And you never know how badly somebody needs to hear what only you have to say

so put your pride aside and let's go for a new ride

It's a roller coaster but that's what makes it fun

We've got these seat belts and helmets for when the bumps get real

but just remember

Never wear a helmet on your heart

Cause that's the place where all your dreams start.

So choose if you're ride or die.  

And if you choose to ride then I'll see you on the highway of life

Cause that's where I found the most light

Let yours shine bright

And you might just see... Those dreams?  

Suddenly become your reality

I thank you for joining me in this thing called


We are all one.
