I can sit and wonder why about so many thing, and I can sit and wonder what these things are that can eat at our thoughts. We do this in my opinion because we feel that we may have heard or seen something to cause this. Well, even if we did see or hear something go cause this, we should not jump at situation in a way that can harm us because not matter what, if someone is going to say or do something, they are going to do it anyway. The main thing for me is that I am breathing in my own way. I know that as I continue on I can always smile and feel so good about everything because no matter what, I have my love, respect, morals, belief, and many other things as well. Thank you mom and dad for being amazing influences in my life. Thank you to those who are my real friends. Thank you to those who are in my life that actually care and love me as I am breathing in my own way.

I absolutely love the rain for so many personal reasons. I know that we all have had our journeys in a positive way, and in a negative way. It is so important that when it was something negative that we learn from them and grow in a major way. Even if it was something we did not do because the negative people that try to push that on us are the ones we need to remove so we can embrace our lives. When it is something positive, we embrace that with every last ounce of drive, passion, love and happiness. It's the rain that cleanses me. It's the rain that gives me thoughts. It's the rain that lets me feel calm. It's the rain that gave me life..... My daughter. I love the rain.
I, Charlie Rivero just want to thank everyone for your support, your friendship, your belief, your love and your strength to be there for each other. The life in hand is just a knowledge of knowing that we have who we are as real humans to deal with everyday life as we know it. We some times deal with bad things, negative things, wonderful things, funny things, and so much more. The main thing is to not allow those who try to contaminate our lives with words that try to bring us down, because we all know that there are people out there that really try to make us look bad, they try to bring us down and they do cause a lot of harm around us. It is a poor and brought down version of the media and paparazzi in so many ways. All I know is that I am so honored to have everyone that is a part of my life always for the love, the hellos, the smiles and so much more. As I know that we all have had our issues, it is important to not judge anyone just because there are a few scratches on the surface. The ones that show to not let peace be, are the ones that cause chaos in so many ways. These are the ones to stay away from as we can see what they would rather try to do to us instead of just getting along because god knows, they are not perfect either. The life in hand is what we are and who we are every day, and today, I am damn proud of who I am as a father, an artist, a friend, and a lover. Call me what you want, but those who know me, understand that I am a great person or they would not have been with me throughout the entire moments of hard times we have been through together, nor would I have had the help and support. Again, thank you all for everything and I can't wait to share more new music coming up, some films, and other projects I will be working on.
I love you all.
The second night now.
My eyes have trouble closing and my mind has trouble to stop thinking. In a theatrical sense, the lights go out, the crowd leaves and that is when you begin to feel the emotions of the lost trail of a stage that has dropped the floor on us. You can try to figure out when and why the floor drops but it makes no difference because it always seems that the good solders seem to be the ones with the cuts that hurt the most. It's kinda like waving at that cab to pull over to pick you up and she just drives by. It's kinda like that soap dispenser that gives and gives and gives but is washed off so easily and then left alone after it has been used. It's kinda like that light bulb we use only when it's needed, and not wanted. In a city like Las Vegas, you no longer wave because you realize that the souls are only a painting to fool even the biggest of magicians. You realize it when that painting is finally removed from in front of you with a laughter in your face because they fooled you. Little do they know that to us real people, it does not matter that they fooled us, but what does matter, is the pain they give because of how giving us good people are and then the fakes take what you have given and use that to paint the fake painting they use against everyone. No,, this is not towards anyone, and no, this is not an angry post. This is my thoughts of how random pain can hit us and how random it could make us feel. You know when you smell great food, or you listen to a great song and it just seems to take you to that amazing place?,,, It's kinda like that. Just this morning I thought about a random dance outside my car. Just this afternoon I thought about sitting at a lake with a blanket eating a twinky. I love these things because they hold water to me. My heart smiles and That is that.
It's amazing what just being existent does. It does matter.
It's not hard to know who cares and who does not because you can see and feel.
It's an amazing gift our higher being has given everyone.

It is every day that goes by that lets me understand the underground emotions from a previous or current moment that may have effected my heart, soul, and feelings in some way. It is that certain moment where we experience that extra intense moment to make us cry, laugh, or even build strength to a universe of emotions in our hearts. I can sit and try to figure out so many puzzles that have made no sense or have bothered me in some way but the end of that tunnel will still tell me that I am Charlie and that I am the person who has that big beautiful, warm, loving heart that loves to give, in so many ways but yet still has that little pond of ripples that makes me wonder, "why at times I feel dispensed". I can close my eyes and know that my strength will always stand and is always great - full that I have my mom and dad in my heart and soul with the old school morals that has given me such a secure respect to anyone that I let in my life. Of course, my attitude my not be perfect, but I won't get into that because again, there is no such thing as perfect. I'm still willing to understand a new form of getting into the water as long as I remember that I will be getting wet no matter what. Now it's just a matter of wanting to say, "Ok, I will". Sure,, I can say many things but knowing the facts that love is real is the most powerful embrace you can ever understand, and that is why I am such a positive soul to say to that dark tunnel, "Yes, it is ok to smile and say that there is still that good". There is still that good we can hold no matter what because it was never bad enough to hate. Embrace the reality of real. This is what I love about saying I can open up, but I just have to do it with a little more care. It's because I care to open up. It's because I care to know that if I say I love you, it's because it is real in so many ways. I'm sure we have all heard the term, "I am taking out the trash" because of a bad situation. I will never say or do that because first off, I obviously took the time to express and care (Still Do) in many ways so that is just rude. Second, when we take the garbage out, you can easily want nothing to do with it so you remove it and try to say your strong because of that. Well, I can't do that because that would imply that I never cared for the person if it was that easy to remove. Anyway, it is all a beautiful thing because I may be angry, sad, upset, or stressed, or whatever, but it does not mean that love has been removed. Real love is not removed that easily, and if it is removed that easily, then we all know the answer to that thought, which is painful if thats the case. To me all of it was real.

I am damn proud of who I am and why I am. I am in love and I do love. I am not perfect and neither is anyone else. If it gets to the point where frustration, anger, stress, or arguments happen, be strong and get over it because NO ONE is perfect. If it gets to the point where a life is threatened, then move on because that is just stupid. I am real because I'm not perfect, but I am perfectly real and I am proud of it. I have made my mistakes in life but don't judge me when other have made mistakes as well.

I have been loved and I have loved. All in this world that have allowed me to be me I thank you. All in this world that were truly strong to still be in my life for the honest love, friendship and understanding, I thank you for taking the time to knowing me and wanting me still in your life. I remember growing up in a way that was somewhat of a selfish ass at some points. Every time something wrong happened I would back off in a major way and just close people off, or avoid them at any moment just so I can feel safe. I then began to understand that no matter how old or how young,,,, how rich or how poor,,,,, we are going to have moments that are harsh, dragging on the floor, duking it out and yelling,,,, while other moment will be absolutely amazing and beautiful. It is up to each and every one of us to take those moments and make it our own so we can cherish one another during hard times and during amazing times. Arguments, stupid name calling, or even emotional stress is a typical position that we will all be in no matter what. It is called real love and emotions. If we did not care,,,, we would not feel these emotions which makes us defensive or hurt, or confused, or whatever.. It's because we care enough to say hey,,, I love this person, why is this going on?,, so we try to resolve it because we simply care. Now, if there is hitting, or cheating, or drug abuse in any way and stuff like that, then im sorry, but there is no repairing something like that. Love, is what we as humans really are when we get upset, sad, stressed, happy, goofy, silly, dumb, creative, powerful, or even depressed. We are real. I am real.. I am Charlie Rivero
