I said nothing would stop me from being content and in that moment I swear that I meant it. A year later my hate has still got a grip on every single aspect in this life I live. I search for compassion in hopes to find some fucking meaning and some reason to my life. To be a driving force to change the world I see but, I can't change the world if I don't start with me. I am the listening ears, cause I wish that someone could be that for me. I am the change that I want to see, I am wholehearted empathy. I am the change that I want to see, I am wholehearted empathy. I am the change. I am the change. I am the fucking change. I always say things get better but, I'm having trouble believing it myself. My hate is motivation for my betterment, I only have myself to blame for the state that I'm in. I am the scum of the earth, I am the sickness but, in times of negativity I'll see through this. There is hope and it's found here, find comfort in places you've always feared. There is love and it's created here, learn to love and let go of my fears. There is hope. There is love. There is hope. There is love. I am the compassion I wish to see. I am the strongest I have ever seen and no one will take that from me.

"Amelioration" is the first single off of the upcoming EP "Growing Apart" that will drop late Fall.
