Cheer up

Cheer up.
You are alive.
You are not totally alone.
You are still with us,
still able to wake up another morning
and fight.

Cheer up.
There's a lot of love in the world.
Even if
the one you just lost
You feel you lost forever.
There's never just one love for anyone.
Even if in the heat of the moment
It feels like games over.

Cheer up.
You'll find the path that's right for you-
Even if
you've been walking in the wrong circles
That have taken you nowhere
But to your own despair
what feels like forever.

Cheer up.
You're alive.
You are able to move.
to dream.
to find new friends.
to reach out to old friends.

Cheer up.
There's so much to live for.
Just open your eyes.
More importantly
Get up and
go back into the ring
starting now!

No one knows anything

No one knows anything.
No one.

No one really knows
Who loves who
How much
And when that love will end
or if maybe
 it already ended long ago-

No one knows who is-
Behind closed doors -
Actually -
 a lunatic
 a hater
on the verge of unraveling
or evolving
Becoming a sun
or a black hole.

No one knows what's behind
Anyone's smile
or anger
And what is
Really going on
Inside the earthquake
of one's soul
Cause no one.
No one
knows anything.
Not even you.

No one knows
who is attracted to whom.
Who is attracted
 to men
or women.
Who is attracted
 to other things
just to name a few.
No one knows anything.
Not even you.

No one knows
and those
that spread rumors
 like they know.
are usually
 the ones
that really don't know.
Cause no one
no one
 knows anything.
Not even you.

Did you see
how silent they all were
when it all happened,
Did you see how silence
is powerful
And evil-
Did you,
Did you see?

Did you see
How they had no shame
in their own cowardice?
 How they all knew what the right thing
to do was -
but instead chose
To pretend they didn't see?
Did you,
Did you see?

Did you see
How quickly
They went on with their -
daily lives
So fast,
Things no one
should ever forget-
Did you,
Did you see?

I hope
unlike them
you chose to see-
Cause you are my witness
That it really happened.
You must tell everyone
what you saw
To remind them -
That they did
They did see it too!
