I get my inspiration from music mainly...Westlife's "Change The World" inspired me to write my own little version.  


"Change The World"

Happiness is getting further away, girl
I miss you more than words can say
Baby, I need a miracle now
I can change the world
I can change your mind
But the only thing I can't change is our love
You can give me heaven then take it away
How can I change the world?
Where's the miracle I need now...
I need to change the world
I can't sleep, I can't dream
Everything I knew
Is a lie
Without you
I need to change the world
But I only could
While I am with you
I made a bet
I made a vow
That I would never lose you
I can't lose this now
I want to change the world
But I could only do that with you
Take my hand, babe
And we can make it til the end
C'mon baby, let's change the world
Let's show people what it's all about
Let's show people how it was, how it is, and how it should be
Only if you take my hand....

Touching poem Alex.  I can tell you have a sensitive side to you.  Girls like that in a guy!  Keep up the good work.

Well, I must admit that I am a West Life fan and that song is deffinately very moving.  I too get most of my inspiration from songs.  The lyrics express so much, even if we don't know the 'true' meaning of the lyrics we have the way they make us feel, and this is so important.  Everyone needs something that inspires them, and music is a great way to get it!!

I get my inspiration from music, yeah.  It's a good thing to get inspiration from.  Sometimes it isn't the lyrics that are good.  It's how it's sang.  A good example is "Can't Lose What You Never Had"....by Westlife.  Usually, great lyrics + great beat = phattest song, mostly.

This is an excellent poem, and very strong. Everything is said, at least from the point of view I have, and I really enjoyed reading it.
