    People often ponder what Midnight is all about
    I don’t know myself...what makes up total darkness?

    A whole lot of sadness, a little confusion
    then add a little sweetness just to add to the illusion
    my darkness is bright, it shines like a beacon
    I had love once, lost it, and now I’m tired of seeking
    I smoke a lil weed, I listen to rap music
    but I have a warm heart, and wont let anyone abuse it
    I’m a contradiction to every stereotype known to man
    but to be a real individual, I know I have to take a stand.
    For what I believe in, is what I become
    your beliefs and personality become as one
    sometimes I feel sensitivity in a man is weak
    then I realize I’m being weak, by allowing myself to care about what people think
    My spirituality keeps me confused...I’m not living right by God’s standards
    therefore I’m not living to my full potential..no matter what I accomplish
    my thoughts keep me off balance, everything can’t be explained away....
    My hot passion threatens to burn through my cool demeanor
    my romantic mind makes simple things seem sensual and seductive
    my words are soothing like a warm bath with scented candles
    my emotions twist and turn like a roller coaster without safety rails
    my life is like a good movie, gets better the closer it gets to the end.....
    My mistakes pile up like painful reminders of what I could have been
    all my flaws and all my qualities........
    don’t tell the half of what makes Midnights Son so different..
    I’ve felt what some people never will...
    Seen what some will never see....
    I’m only 21, but feel older than my time
    I see all these problems and wonder..how can all these be mine?
    I’ve seen that life can be wonderful, it’s also cold and cruel
    on my happiest day, I can’t help but think of some1 who’s out there...
    Alone, cold, unhappy, lost, and it brings my mood down like gravity
    I cant stop these thoughts, no more than I can stop being cute
    the world is so big when you’re alone, I feel like a floating tumble-weed.
    there you have it, a little about the one....
    That’s known to all the world, as Midnights Son
