A Thank You To @officialtfk (Thousand Foot Krutch)

While I just released Make Waves I always feel that it’s important to thank people and one is a local group, ok well maybe not real “local” since they’re not really from a close town more like a couple of hours away but the Canadian band Thousand Foot Krutch inspired me, I heard there song called “Be Somebody” and it inspired me to write the poem “Be Somebody” now to read mine simply click HERE, as for them well I’ll be adding in a video at the end of this for all of you to check out to hear there song.

As of late I’ve just been listening to them and the album of choice has been:
The End Is Where We Begin
since at the time that’s the only album I owned from them, however last night I jumped myself on iTunes and snagged up:
I know it’s not the newest album but a few of the tracks caught my attention more than the newest (non live) album Exhale, I’m sure in due time I’ll snag up Exhale and perhaps even the live album. But anyways here’s the video for Be Somebody:

Once again much thanks to Thousand Foot Krutch from myself for giving me the inspiration to write..


Be Somebody – poetry/prose/poem

Be Somebody

We all want to be somebody.
How many times have you listened to someone or seen a movie.
Wanting to be that person on the screen or in your ear.
We all want to be somebody, but don’t want to give ourselves a chance.

We all go through trials and tribulations in our lives.
The paths are never paved, the hills are steep.
There’s no chairlift to take us to the top.
We all have to walk, find out own path.
What one person did, may not work for the next.

You have to stand tall, make your own path and live your own life.
Listening to the stories of others is great, but don’t follow there path.
Have your own life, have your own misfortunes. Be greatful for what you have and had.
Your past will make you a better person in your future.
May not like what you go through, nobody does.

You’ll have tunnels of darkness.
You’ll have pathways of light.
I don’t wish my life upon anyone.
Not my greatest friend, not my worse enemy.

I don’t want anyone elses life.
At times I don’t want to have mine.
In my mind I can see me being friendless in the future.
But if that’s the path I have to take, then so be it.

It’s my life, it’s my path.
I want to be somebody
I want to be ME
