Give me a way to stop thinking about everyone.
Sadness is like some kind of drug that I can't get off of.
Not as in it's pleasurable,
But as in it's addicting.
I write my best work when I'm sad
And I want it to stop,
But I wonder who I am without that.
I wonder who I am when I'm not sad.
People make me sad,
And I don't want that.
I don't have to watch the news to know that it's bad.
I wish I could choose,
I wish there were something I could do.
Who are you to do the bad things you do?
You just bring humanity down with you.
It's like people have lost sight of the fact that "humane" has the word "human" in it.
If we go around wishing each other hell and taking rights away, is anything really humane?
I wish things would change,
But sadness will never go away.
If people were to be doing everything they can to help Africa, they wouldn't be the way they are suffering.
People need to change,
So prove me wrong and say you can.
Say things won't remain.
I live for change,
And if anything remains the same,
It's my ability to identify that each individual person has the ability to induce it,
They just have to go out and do it.
