Favorite Quote:
Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows. It's a very mean and nasty place and I don't care how tough you are it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it.

A world of ‘whys’ and ‘what’s’
“I tried but”
We live in a broken world—
With all its doors closed shut.

We all try to compromise ourselves—
To be like all the rest
To think another’s thoughts
And to always want the best.

But, humanity has taken its toll
We tried—oh we tried our very best
Destiny has achieved its role
The dream is our next test.
