So many people and things around us try and drag us down. At some point you will need to bring a culling. Inside yourself or the things around you, you will need to shed the dead weight and make things better. To do away with the disingenuous, the users, the poor quality characteristics. You will need to better the breed.
Apropos of nothing, hidden behind lock and key there's a brighter side of me desperately trying to breath. The masks we wear are overwhelming all honesty. Integrity and self-respect are a dying scene. Weak wills and weaker knees are all that stand between us and excuses used to give up on our dreams that only die if we give up on ourselves. Unburden us so struggles faced may become nightmares erased, so we may live in this disastrous mess they've made. Unburden us so struggles faced may become triumph embraced, so we may live in this disastrous mess they've made. Unburden us so we can sever shackles from our feet and stop living on broken knees. We can separate ourselves from the anchors that weight us down. Whether inanimate or living, we are stronger without. Free from all negativity and constant doubt. Complacency has no place in me. These words are a declaration to resist with all that I have, I will defy them until my dying breath. They're neither with nor against me. Gone are the hands that stole from me. Gone are the feet that walked away. Gone are the tongues that spoke against me. Gone are the hearts that betrayed.
