lyrics

You are reborn
and even though I barely have known you and probably will never will
I am prouder of how far you’ve come than some of the closest people that stand around me
You show yourself as who you are, no one can take that away from you
Arms stretched out, trying to catch what you thought was the wind was actually the sky and you hold yourself, now, stronger after the ball and chain is slowly disappearing from your heart and you are morphing into someone that you can truly believe in
I stand here, wishing I posses the strength you have, only to come up short and be tied down by the anchors and constraints of life
But I also understand, you are finally free to become the person you want to be and all I can see is true happiness, something I hope to attain one day
The biggest regret that I can speak out of my mouth to make vibrations so you can hear pure truth, is that, I really wish I took the time to know you
But life is pulling on our strings and watches as the world turns and pulls us apart
But I will always keep the strength of your inner being in my heart to make myself grow out of the molds and to make ourselves blossom to something more than we could ever know
I don’t consider you to be me, nor would I ever because your struggles aren’t mine and I hate to intertwine the binds that you’ve broken and ripped apart when you struggle to keep the vines off of you
Because I’ve known the world has abused you, yet you stand tall, look me right in the eye and will one day tell the person you love most, “I do”
And all of this, even when I leave you, I will still keep you in the back of my mind, on the city streets, where I will meet and greet more people like you
and share the story that I know of you, because what can I do but share the strength and hope of someone renewed to a fellow human being who deserves the same empathy as a person such as me
Some people will never know the old you, and knowledge is power and ignorance is bliss, and I hope you won’t ever have to explain how you’ve change and how its normal and no one is to blame, THIS IS HOW YOU ARE and I will stand beside you even if you need me or not, I will be a soldier on the front lines protecting the scars and damage that been caused for the name of humanity, and I’m no hero, just a decent human being trying to give a little bit of spare change to someone who will actually use it
So take my hand, brother and count with me the weeks and time that passes by us like strangers on a New York City sidewalk and we’ll become one with veins connected and blood type the same
All we can ignore the hate spewed from biased tongues and protect our love ones from shying lungs and to finally pontificate the meaning of being human in ourselves and what are we more than a bunch of water and vacuous cells
WE ARE PEOPLE, contrived to be more than just another empty soul, WE LOVE EACH OTHER MORE THAN WE COULD EVER KNOW AND WE UNDERSTAND THE NEEDS AND STRUGGLES OF OTHERS AS WE STAND WITH OUR SISTERS AND BROTHERS AND WE MAKE MORE OF HOME THAN JUST A SHELTER WE MAKE IT A SAFE SPACE FOR ONE ANOTHER AND ALL WE CAN DO IS SHARE THE LAUGHS AND MEMORIES BEFORE WE CRUMBLE INTO THE GROUND LIKE THE DIRT WE CAME FROM AND CHANT TO THE RHYTHM OF LIFE UNTIL THE BREATH OF LIFE LEAVES OUR SOULS
