Irony

Irony is beautiful, wouldn’t you say? How funny is hypocrisy when you hear these people say ”Your dreams are just a waste of time” they scoff and berate But then when we succeed they buy the things we create People look at people chasing dreams and they judge Then they work a 9 to 5 … More Irony

The Actor

A twisted tale of truth he hid, as lying’s what he always did Fleeing from the fear his bedroom mirror might make He never judged the things he’d do, but if the same was done by you His fingers would be first to point out every mistake   No thought for who he really was, … More The Actor

Life

Can we be honest with ourselves for a moment? I want to talk about some things. Things like Facebook. Twitter. Instagram, perhaps.
