Favorite Quote:
The Constitution only guarantees the American people the right to pursue happiness. You have to catch it yourself. ~Benjamin Franklin


I'm my own person
That's all I'll ever be
I don't need my shadow
To come and cover me

I know how to talk
And think for myself
I like to go out
Instead of being shelved

My shadow comes out
It overpowers me
I try to run
I try to get freed

But it sticks like butter
That's stuck to my bread
I can't get this shadow
Out of my head

But then it occurs
Why try to fight
I should embrace
This shadow of might

I'm my own person
That's all I'll ever be
So now me and my shadow
Can become one...That's me
