The Bad Influence

Sometimes, I Forget I Am A Miracle

Sometimes, I forget I am a miracle,
born and surrounded by chaos,
some memories good,
others not,
but I am still here,
just existing.
I used to look up at the stars,
my soul begging to run free,
but now I’m standing still,
just reaching upward.
Please, tell me that I have not wasted my life.
Please, tell me that I still have time,
and I always say that tomorrow is a new day.
But they say…




We’re a Bad Influence because we INCITE change through inclusion, thought and creativity. We imagine a world where people can think critically, express themselves, and thumb their nose at the status quo, together.
