man in the mirror

I have come to a conclusion that man in the mirror is my all time favorite song.
I just find it weird because I always post the lyrics of the song as my status in Facebook way before Micheal Jackson died. @.@

I badly want to post the video sarah and otep made (with my photos in it) about poverty but dang! multiply won't allow me : l anyway, you can view the video by visiting Sarah Baldonado's multiply site.

Photo taken along the busy street near San Pedro Cathedral. Most street kids that I see have furious eyes but this trio is different.

I'm Gonna Make A Change,
For Once In My Life
It's Gonna Feel Real Good,
Gonna Make A Difference
Gonna Make It Right . . .

As I, Turn Up The Collar On My
Favourite Winter Coat
This Wind Is Blowin' My Mind
I See The Kids In The Street,
With Not Enough To Eat
Who Am I, To Be Blind?
Pretending Not To See
Their Needs
A Summer's Disregard,
A Broken Bottle Top
And A One Man's Soul
They Follow Each Other On
The Wind Ya' Know
'Cause They Got Nowhere
To Go
That's Why I Want You To

I'm Starting With The Man In The Mirror
I'm Asking Him To Change
His Ways
And No Message Could Have
Been Any Clearer
If You Wanna Make The World A Better Place
Take A Look At Yourself, And
Then Make A Change

I've Been A Victim Of A Selfish
Kind Of Love
It's Time That I Realize
That There Are Some With No
Home, Not A Nickel To Loan
Could It Be Really Me,
Pretending That They're Not

A Willow Deeply Scarred,
Somebody's Broken Heart
And A Washed-Out Dream
They Follow The Pattern Of
The Wind, Ya' See
Cause They Got No Place
To Be
That's Why I'm Starting With

I confess that I haven't tried studying for review class' exam. No, not once! But still i pass. Now, I'm bothered. Will luck still be on my side during the actual board? So, it's too late for me to study for tomorrow's exam, it's late and my eyes are shunting by themselves. Henceforth, studying starts on Monday. Whether I'm depress with my cases or not. I must start studying na!

love this song too. catchy tunes but poignant lyrics... it all starts with a choice... within ourselves. at the end of the day other ppl come and go, circumstance change.. but the one thing we never lose is the power to make our own choices and direct our own lives. :) thanks for dropping by my new blog btw!! :)

Man In The Mirror is one of my fav. song from MJ.

It was released at the right time when the world was in a mess (well... don't compare to now la) and this song touches many people who listen to it and resulted in effecting the decisions of the world leaders.
