Song Lyrics: Angel or Devil

“VERSE 1 Being a good girl An expectation out of nowhere Trying to avoid conflict Is mistaken for kindness and goodwill   Silence might seem compliance But it hosts the deepest rancour Waiting to explode like a timebomb Disguised with a smile and a nod   PRE-CHORUS Everyone has their limit Reaching mine has me thinking   CHORUS Angel or Devil Who I wanna be oh Angel or Devil What to be in this world   VERSE 2 Forgiving without apologies Makes me feel so naïve I trade justice for peace Looking for ease that weakens me   Don’t get…

Song Lyrics: Faith in Fallacy

Freedom of speech has always been a tricky issue for me, as the word “freedom” itself is too. Without doubt, it is a right that every person should have.

You are allowed to say your opinion, but there are limits and consequences. The Charlie Hebdo attack is an inhumane act that needs to be condemned without doubt. A total of 18 lives have been lost during these three days of terror in Paris, and not just…

Find Yourself Before Finding Anything Else

Every year in the day of my birthday I choose a song to guide me during the next year. For instance, my 17th song was “17” by Avril Lavigne, because I was hoping to have a year full of friends, constant party, an active social life and excellent memories to remember one day when I was older. I spent a year seeking a good family and strong friendships. However, I didn’t find any of these things. In fact, my 17s (together with my 16s) was one the worst years of my life, when comes to my emotional and social life.…
