If no one were watching would you live the same way?

Would you live life on a whim and not regret what you say?

Would you dance to your own rhythm with the beat of your drum?

Would you quit being “perfect” and truly have fun?

Would you rise above their limitations and take back your motions?

Would you do what you enjoy, and give God full devotion?

Would you decide for yourself what’s right and what’s wrong?

Would you step outside the lines and sing your own song?

The world’s going to judge us no matter what we do…

So we might as well live life true through and through

You never realize how much it meant 

Until the time has passed 

You never knew how much you changed

Until you look back at last 

You never know how much you love them

Until they’re far away

You never miss them more than words

Until a rotten day 

You never realize the tears 

Until they’re pouring out 

You never regretted what you missed

Until you give in to doubt 

You never want to tell 

Until the final straw

You never want to mind

Until you come out raw 

You never meant for it to come out that way

Until the words have gone

You never wanted to take it back

Until their anger dawns 

You never knew they were plastic

Until their colors show 

You never knew how much it hurt

Until they always go 

You never wanted any of this to happen 

Until the change has come 

You never knew the hard times could save you 

Until your hope has won

The world isn’t over 

Even if what you don’t know can hurt you after all

But the beauty of love is that it conquers every flaw 

Every flaw that says you’re not good enough 

The lie that says be tough

You don’t have to be their perfect image

Or add on extra fluff 

Just live life one day at a time 

And engage in what you love 

Don’t be afraid to stand out 

Because you’re accepted by God above 

-Live Life Well

With time comes change

And loss and pain

When people fight

And point the blame

Friends move on

And life goes on

As time goes by

We shift the sky

The times we’ve had

The lives we’ve lived

The things we’ve said

And the smiles we’ve shared

Have all been set in history

Nothing can change what’s set in stone

But faced with an empty page

Love can still be shown

We are the difference the world needs

We lead the next generation

And plant time’s seeds

Now is the time to live our lives

To change the storms

And to paint the skies

My Palace of Dreams

my-palace-of-dreams

My Palace of Dreams

Someday you’ll see it

My Palace of Dreams

Where everything’s real

And stitched tight at the seams

The wind roars on past

And changes the hour

While life is preserved

And love is real power

Rain glistens like crystals

As the branches hold strong

The leaves color the sky

And the birds sing their song

The sun sets with its pinkish hue

While the youth serve the elder

And respect’s more than a cue

The embers fade into the dark of night

Like the big blue sky

Swallowing the tail of a kite

The young and the old gather as one

To protect one another

Until the rise of the sun

She won’t fit a mold

She creates

She is bold

She won’t recreate others

Or fake it to win

She expresses herself freely

And lives life on a whim

She is perfection

She is fearless

She is beauty

She is love

Vividly she lives

And wildly she pursues

None other like her

None other He’d choose

Swift to answer

She knows what to say

She knows what she needs

And she knows to obey

She’s got a dream and a drive

She will see things through

From it she will thrive

And to her destiny she’ll pursue

She doesn’t need to make sense

But her actions reassure

Her name is confidence

And for the Lord she’ll endure

When you’re at your weakest

That’s when to be your strongest

The final choice is yours

You can drop or you can soar

Courage overflows with every beat of your heart

You are not a coward

No…. You are set apart

Nothing can stop you from breaking the course

You were created to rise above

And to take the chains by force

You aren’t destined for failure

You’re called to great valor

So rise mighty warriors

And conjure all your fears

Defeat all their doubt

And stand above their jeers

They’re not who you live for

They haven’t hold on your life

Please don’t wallow in their pity

Or be held back by their strife

You are called to so much more

Your honor holds you high

So rise up might warrior

And truly live before you die

-Live Life Well

You tell me this is reality

But how are we to know?

You tell me this world’s alone

But you hid its chance to show

You tell me that it’s right

For a girl to be ignored

For a boy to be jeered

And denied the chance to soar

You tell me that it’s normal

For fake smiles to exist

But who made this up?

And why’d it make the list?

You tell me to cry in secret

That help is for the weak

You say weird is a bad thing

And that difference is a sin

You give me empty complements

You think I hide in shame

You judge, pretend, and laugh

Just to be “the same”

You drive yourself insane

With this sick perfection

You accept the burdened weary

Meeting gestures with dissection

You say they’re too far gone

That they aren’t even worth it

You cause them grief and doubt

Until they cry till dawn

You trip, tease, and hate

To hide your face from pain

You tear others down

And wind up with no gain

Why are you so afraid

To let go of the past?

The past is self-explanatory

It’s meaning says it’s done

You have a brand new slate

And you don’t need to run

My God is greater

And stronger than your sin

You don’t have to carry it

He’ll take it from your back

He’s the God of second chances

And He told me to tell you that

Just Like That

Just Like That

Just Like That

It’s silly and meaningless

I know I will be strong in this

I know who I am

And trust me I am worth it

I’m a fighter

Not a quitter

Came in last

But still a winner

I’m unstoppable

Untouchable

The ruler of my fear

I’m Confident

And Prominent

Strongest when my God is near

Destiny’s my portion

God’s the one I pursue

He’s on my side for this round

And there’s nothing death can do

So world, come at me

See what God has done

The love that He gives

And the heart’s that He has won

We are victorious

We end up on the top

We’re the children of the promise

And we’re never gonna stop

Live Life Well

Not a reason

Not an injust

Not a pain

Nor a frown

Just comparison

To bring them down

Simple as that

Frivolous

And childish

The world is yours

The air is free

You can soar

Create to be

So live

And breathe

With open eyes

Express your world

And rule the skies

Live Life Well

Dancing On the Light

Dancing On the Light

Dancing On the Light

Dance with me forever

Move me with the beat

Spin me round and round

And sweep me off my feet

 

Paint the colors in my hair

And the pink in my cheeks

Feel the energy around us;

The world when it’s complete

 

This is true beauty

This is pure joy

You are my breath of life

A love none can destroy

 

So never let me go

Never say goodbye

Stay here in this moment

Until we both can fly

Live Life Well

-Mei
