    before i developed my
    own mind...
    i wandered in footsteps that
    wasnt mine...
    and learned that great stories
    told to me were
    all lies...
    my soul finally gave away
    and inside of me
    jesus died
    inside of me is where i
    can only cry...
    inside of me there is a phoenix that
    will arise...
    and sorch the
    skies...
    with my blood...
    i never feared the thought of
    death because...
    the end never goes without
    a peaceful pause...
    and i could only wish i could
    explain the things
    i saw...
    my insecurities are becoming
    my downfall...
    if i could sing
    i'll sing the color of
    the sky...
    and the melody will be so in tune
    with my demise...
    i dont believe in myself, so what is there
    to believe in life...
    but i contradict myself
    everytime...
    with each breath
    of mine...
    there's a reason
    somewhere...
    i'm just a liar...

    Learing
    I
    Am
    Real...

    Discover the beauty of you, and the doors will begin to open, well written and felt.
