All the days
In all the ways
Echoes fade
And Echoes gain

Evil in the prison walls
As on the outside many tears fall
Lives come and lives go
Round and round the issues grow

Positive and negative, one outweighs the other
If we start to see ourselves one in another
Will things change or remain the same
Regardless, we need to stop treating life as a game

There’s always a chance

That you’ll learn something
That it means nothing
That it could possibly change everything

Let the heavens sing
Let the phones ring
Let the changes of love begin happening

Open your eyes to what the day brings
Have the purpose of life flow like a spring
Never forget that kindness is always worth practicing


Trying to hide
The fallen pride
Identity subsides
Anger collides
Then depression divides
Love can provide
An outlet to guide
So never give in to suicide


The beauty you hold is the standard
That will always be my answer
Whatever makeup you decide or flow of the hair
All the other shapes, sizes, and styles can’t compare

You’re the one I hold dear
When we first started, to year after year
In case I haven’t made it clear
I want to be your love that’s always near

The truth is I want to protect and hold you close
I’m intrigued by the person you are beyond the clothes
I want to support your endeavors and be a part of your adventure
Keeping you encouraged and uplifted because you’re my treasure

To me it isn’t about your image because I see grace
The kindness you hold in your heart reflected by the smile on your face
Actions speak louder than words, so let me be your resting place
I’ll always prove that you’re safest within my embrace

There’s nothing we can’t do
You’re the one for me, I always knew
Each time you ask how you look
Again, there’s no one as gorgeous all around in my book


They say you can’t pick your family
But, my parents picked me
There is truth to the saying
Since I didn’t have a say in the things

Adopted and introduced to two new siblings
It’s been awhile now, the numbers are adding
Family for the most part isn’t chosen
Until you’re ready to get your own in motion

Friends are what most of us actually get to pick
With an eye to promote time in those relationships
When it comes to starting that next chapter
Commitment and loyalty are what we’re after

The notion of giving up shouldn’t exist
Being there throughout needs to be the promise
Just like the support of a family or a friend
Enhance the best you’ve ever had choosing to give your all till the end


A story that many seek
As they go about their week
Trying to be strong, but in reality are weak

Seeking a pleasurable treat
From each individual they tend to meet
Yet don’t treat them how they want to be treated, but like meat

A person is still a human, we’re in the same crowd
Somehow the view of each has been different aloud
When we all have the right to freedom or should be allowed

No matter the country or the view
Diversities make things unique in all we do
Respect, kindness, and discipline in this era sure are due

Intellect and wisdom are different machines
Try to change up the daily lifestyle, try a new scene
Learn through experiences, rather than just by what may be seen


Half a planet away
You cheer me up each day
To think in the past
We never would’ve crossed paths
Now with the connectivity
I’ve gotten to experience your blessing
Despite the distractions and tragedies
Technologies have still been exciting
A gentle personality, innocent in a way
Greatness blooms within, this I will say
A smile that truly impacts my heart
No matter the miles we are apart


Two spirits separated by geography
One is earthly, the other now heavenly
One can see the other, while one just remembers
Two seconds is far different for each member

What was once a flash is now a light
What was once darkness is now bright
The drastic changes from one to the next
Something to ponder, so complex

An instant is all it seems when it’s done
While living, it may seem like a lengthy run
Years are a measurement of time
But nothing can express the gap between these two sides


The winds shift as people argue over policies
Trying to persuade others to their senses personally
Talking about all sorts of different controversies
Gun laws and restrictions when it isn’t the material, but the person’s mentality

Time after time we’re witnessing multiple tragedies
Just lately many centered around one common city
Still people don’t see it, you’ve got to be kidding me
The hatred that spreads derives from our very own society

The messages that get taught and displayed
Recur constantly day after day, every single way
There is no end in sight when you tell people they are nothing
Trying to implant it into their heads that there’s no purpose residing

If that’s their outlook for themselves in their sight
Then how do you expect them to value someone else’s life
It doesn’t matter the background of the victims
When the perpetrator decides that their lives are also not worth it

Many of these shootings end in suicide
It’s because they feel it allows them to hide
Which is far from the truth since they essentially get glorified
Media giving fame to their name while the families of the lost are mortified

They don’t get away from the consequences
Yet many people want to feel that is the essence
However many of us know of a further judgment
That doesn’t get discussed since the media embellishes a different predicament

So what’s to stop many others from replication
If they feel they can get notoriety from and escape the situation
People are being driven into these false perceptions
Creating further conflict between citizens of every nation

Especially when you try to segregate humans
By painting the picture of something minor equating a huge difference
When the reality is we’re all the same race
Each uniquely made being identifiable through our face

Many variations can support that fact
The population count is one simplistic way to react
If people don’t appreciate themselves
How can we expect love for others not to remain rotting on the shelf

There is change that needs to occur for sure
Just the reality is nobody wants to acknowledge the proper
Faith and belief have almost became taboo
While violence and hatred have seemed to fill their shoes

Sad days with sad times
The gateway deciding not to shift the line
Light does still exist
Just this world seems to prefer the darkness


This song was created for entry into a celebration contest hosted by the producer Dansonn who reached the 100K subscriber milestone on his Youtube channel. This track will also be part of a later album project. We had to enter via Youtube, so I figured I’d post that form of media for those of you who may want something visual to see while you listen. Thanks for your time!
