VERSE 1: When he was born, He was open-minded, And so bright-eyed. Told life was good, Filled with love and beauty, Well someone lied. They neglected, To mention The dark side, Complicating... Ev'ry mans life. Racial slurs and hating, Penetrating... Ev'ry damn side. People judging your moves, Without a thought. They hate it when, You have the happiness, That they have sought. CHORUS: The world's too full of hating, Lets all just get along... Ev'ryone enjoys laughing, And listening to song... You can't knock me off my horse, My mind will stay on the line... You can't make me mis'rable, I'm determined to be fine. VERSE 2: For a while there he almost, Went out of his mind! Fear so clouding, and surrounding, Was all he could find! Judgement clouding, he stood his ground And made up his mind! "No more pessimism, I've had Enough of your Kind!" CHORUS: The world's too full of hating, Lets all just get along... Ev'ryone enjoys laughing, And listening to song... You can't knock me off my horse, My mind will stay on the line... You can't make me mis'rable, I'm determined to be fine.

Rate This Submission

Please take the time to rate this writing once you have read it. Our ratings system allows people to know both how popular the writing is, and how well the general populous of the site thinks it is written. This also allows the writer to have feedback about their writing, so they know if they need to improve their technique, or if they're on the right track.

The system allows you to vote on several aspects on the writing. Refer to the help text below each aspect for an explanation. Consider the different aspects carefully, and submit your vote using this form. It will be instantly weighted with the other votes given.


Depending on the writing type, give your opinion on the overall plot if it is a story, or the concept of the writing if it is abstract such as a poem. Does it seem to make sense, strike a chord with you or seem a well chosen concept? Did the author stick to the concept or did they change mid-thought?
Did the author use words and descriptions that allowed you to visualize the scenes portrayed in the writing? Did the feelings of the work stir your emotions as you read it?
Were the words spelled correctly? Was proper punctuation and grammar used? Could you easily understand sentences or did you have to re-read lines several times to understand what was meant?
Depending on the writing type, how did the writing flow? If it's a story, did it have a smooth, easy to follow flow? Did the flow of events make sense? If it's poetry, did the author stick with the syllable flow for that writing type? Did the lines rhyme properly if a rhyming device was used?
Did the author use the same words over and over or did they use a broad vocabulary to get their exact point across? Could better wording be chosen then what they have used?

  • Great observations and insights. The chorus is really inspirational and motivating. Will look foward to the rest.

      • The lyrics definitly have potential. Is there a hook yet or is it all repetative? i would like to hear it completed someday.

        • Reminds me of some good ol' 90's rap. Not that that's a bad thing at all. It is hard to judge it, and when I picture you rapping it makes me grin, no offense. I see this jolly red-haired guy with his hat backwards busting some mhad beats, and yeah, it's amusing Pfft I like it.
