Takes My Breath Away

Image result for pic of taking a mask off

Congrats yeah, you made it

Hard work yeah, it paid it

Smarts yeah, you display it

If not, then you fake it

Make life or break life

Everything you do just seems right

But I know that’s not what’s true

I see the things that you do

And the mask you wear

Your disguise

Nobody can look you

In the eyes

Eyes are the window

to the soul

But if you look through

It’s just a hole

But I know that something’s there

No I really do, I swear

But if you cling to that mask,

I promise it won’t disappear

No

So listen

To the verses

Of my heart

As it curses

Duplicity

And falsity

Yeah the lies we hide behind

Put on a fake face

Smile

Even though we’re dead inside our mind

We try to be real

But the problem is we don’t know how that FEELS

No…

 

CHORUS

It takes my breath away

The things that you never say

The chances you’ll never take

But who am I to talk anyway?

Yeah

Anyway?

Yeah

 

Don’t roll your eyes, complaining

Life is hard, and your straining

But you’re privileged, daddy’s paying

Know what it’s worth, education?

Don’t make a fuss, just sayin

You don’t deserve to whine, I’m not playing!

Every time you’re wrong

You give me a reason to write this song

No wonder, you’re so fake

Every time, you need a break

From being criticized

Instead being told lies

And played for fools

You just believe whatever you hear

You always do what the world wants you to!

You’re a pawn yeah

In a game

Might get rewarded

With fame

But your name

Is not a name

That isn’t without shame

Yeah

Yeah it’s not without shame

If you’re just a part of the game

Yeah

 

CHORUS

It takes my breath away

The things that you never say

The chances you’ll never take

But who am I to talk anyway?

Yeah

Anyway?

Yeah

 

So step up to the plate

You wanna be mediocre?  Or you wanna be great?

Yeah, you wanna be great?

Then listen, my advice

You take this, your life

Quit rolling your eyes and flipping your hair

And shrugging your shoulders like you don’t even care

Yeah, I see you

You think the world, it needs you

Well sorry, I don’t believe you

Your arrogance, that should leave you

You think smart and you talk loud

You’re gonna make daddy so proud

But don’t be living for the crowd

No

Immaturity isn’t allowed

If you wanna grow up

And live free

And be the person you’re meant to be

And change the world for the better

Right down to the last letter

And I’m telling you this

Not to be a lie

You wanna be real?  Give it a try

It’s now or never

Do or die!

Even when you start to cry

It’s better not to be dead: alive!

Ashes will remain

When you finally burn out the pride

But it’ll be worth the pain

If you don’t, then you’ll only ever feign

What could be more

What could be true

And if you don’t

you’ll be the one to blame

Yeah, the one to blame

 

CHORUS

It takes my breath away

The things that you never say

The chances you’ll never take

But who am I to talk anyway?

Yeah

Anyway?

Yeah

Sounds intense, right? 🙂 🙂

In case you didn’t know, what’s Elithius about?

Here’s the back-cover blurb for the first book:

His parents abandon him when he’s thirteen. He’s left to care for his little brother and sister. Life is tough. Things can’t seem to get any worse.

But then Evil Itself breaks down the door. It kidnaps his siblings. And It leaves him bleeding out on the floor of his own home.

The Golden Lands, one of the Three Worlds of Elithius, is supposed to be a place of light, peace and happiness. But the Golden Lands hasn’t been such a place for John Hedekira, a jaded, hot-headed sixteen-year-old. Joined by his friends Faith Pinck and Bernard Tanner, John must rescue his brother and sister from their captors…before his siblings can be sacrificed to the ominous God of Death.

And here’s the back cover blurb for the second book!

John Hedekira and his friends must venture into the Gray Lands in order to rescue John’s sister, Cassie. Upon entering the Gray Lands, they make new friends…and new enemies. Before they know it, they are thrown into the middle of a raging war, in which loyalties and friendships will be tested, darker and more heinous powers will challenge them…and souls will be ripped apart.

The adventures of John and his friends have only begun.

Tomorrow

Tomorrow’s the big day.  The day when I publish the second book of my series, Elithius.  I know that recently I’ve done a pretty poor job of advertising my series, because life has been very crazy.  That’s on me.

Either way, I hope at least some of you are excited about this!

Tomorrow only, both books in Elithius will be $0.99.  After that, I’m gonna bump them up to $2.99.

Don’t miss out!!!

By the way, thanks to everyone who expressed concern after my last post.  Your support means a lot…you have no idea!

So, since I’m publishing my second book tomorrow, you should know what it’s about!  Here’s an overview 🙂

Remember Me?

stressed-out-writer

So it’s been a VERY long time since I’ve posted anything.  I’d like to a apologize for that.  Life has been crazy.  Classes have been challenging, to say the least, and I’ve been focusing most of my time editing my books instead of blogging.  Even editing has been on hold, however.

To be short, I’m also dealing with a break-up that’s left me in pieces, so there’s that too…

But anyway….

I must be completely honest that I’m not sure, for the time being, how efficiently I can keep this blog going.  SO much of you have given me your continued support, which really means a lot to me.  I cannot thank you enough for that.

But life is constantly changing for me; it’s like an ocean that I get trapped under, and I’m not always able to resurface.  When I do resurface, I’m not sure how long I can stay above water, and eventually I fall back down.

Whatever the case, no matter the circumstances of my life or my blog, things are still going to go as planned.  This means that my second book, The Darkness Within, will be available online on December 18th.  

I will say it again, at least for promotional reasons.

Elithius, Book Two: The Darkness Within, will be available as an eBook and in print on December 18th!  $0.99 cents as an eBook for a limited time only.

Rise Up

Emiya fall

Get off the ground.

Pain is temporary.  And if it’s not, that’s okay too.  No pain is meaningless.   It doesn’t have to be.

You don’t have to live this way.  You don’t have to be afraid.  You don’t have to be frustrated.  Let your feelings drive you.

Stand up.  It’s a new day.

Get off the ground.  Rise up.

Do something with your life.  And do it for someone else.  Stop acting like your life is your own, because it’s not.  When we think our lives are our own, we start to think it’s okay to be lazy.  We start to think it’s okay to be complacent.

Your life is not your own.  It’s meant to be given to someone else.  It’s a paradox of life, but it’s what makes life beautiful.

Let your feelings drive you.  Let the pain be for someone else.

Rise up, my friends.  Our lives are not our own.
