"There will always be someone who is smarter than you. Skinnier than you. Stronger than you. More popular than you. There will always be someone better than you, but there will never be someone who is YOU."

The lights of the city are bright; almost welcoming… they mesmerize your eyes in such a way that you cannot stop looking at them
beyond the city lights there are thousands of untold stories of pain, depression, struggle, and little hope
beyond the city lights lay secrets and mystery
beyond the city lights no one can hear the silent screams of those in need.

Beyond the city lights there is a world of wonder and possibilities
beyond the city lights is a universe of opportunities
the blindly bright lights of the city conceal everything; you only see what world they reveal
beyond the city lights is a world in need.

The author's comments:
I just looked at all the problems in the world; and realized that some struggles are hidden. For example, poverty and hunger. I want readers to take action and see the world through different, and liberal eyes.
