I wish they could see me.
I see the world differently,
And I want things to get better
Ive learnt a lot in my short time
So I wrote this short letter
I guess the main thing that I want people to appreciate
Is the quality of life.
Rather than having lots of things
Lets just have a few things that we love
I feel like we are trying to fill a void in our self
When we look at things to buy, there is clearly
Something that we are pining for inside
That creates a need for us to buy.
I love material things too I like to dress nice
And have a few modern necessities and things
BUT not excessively
What I have realized very quickly is that it is not about
What you have, but it is about what you have done.
Not only for yourself but for the people who helped you become,
A real success is who measured by love and the inner
Peace that you have is enough.
I feel that for most of my life I was tricked
Into believing what people said
I could be about myself and
that we really don’t see
Our true potential until out of the
grips of other peoples stencils.
I now am learning to be confident in myself
To have faith that I can make a change to my situation
And to just overall be a better man in a crazy world
That proliferates hatred.
The world has always had its problems
But it is the way we look at these problems
And respond to them has me worried
We try to correct people and use our ego
To handle situations rather then to listen
To someone\'s point of view because were too in a hurry.
We can’t dismiss we have to understand.
I will build something beautiful
Something more than what I can merely hold in my hand
I will be an example for people to follow as a young man.
The time we have is very short and things feel faster
Yet I remain at my pace and try to keep it that way.
I want to move the world
Not have the world move me in to place.
I thank my family for the bad experiences and good experiences
That have shaped me, I thank my belief systems and my morals
That have changed me all the beauty in words that instilled into me as a baby.
Not everything was perfect and it never can be but
It was perfect for me and now I see that everything
happens for a reason and that this is my chance
I hope to see a world that can sing laugh talk and dance.
I hope people get it
And don’t just turn me into what they think I am.
From the man
Who wants to be heard
I hope you give a damn.
