At the touch of love, everyone becomes a poet.

Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep.

A poem is never finished, only abandoned.

Art is the only way to run away without leaving home.


The girl at her locker
has problems...
No one knows what they are.
All they know is she is
scrawny and frail
and has lots of scars.
The girl at her locker is
sad a lot.
No one knows why.
All they know is
she sits there
everyday and cries.
The girl at her locker
has so much potential,
but she doesn't know...
She's capable of
so much, if only
she thought so...
The girl at her locker is beautiful. But a distorted
image in the mirror
she sees.
Everyone calls her
gorgeous, but she
claims she's ugly.
The girl at her locker
doesn't eat because
she thinks she's fat.
Everyone else can
clearly see she's the
opposite of that.
The girl at her locker
is anti-social and
self-contained.
The girl at her
locker has had
all of her
confidence drained.
If only the girl at her
locker could see
what everyone else sees.
The girl who sits at
her locker all alone
is me...

NGU. Never give up.

This is an added bonus, I really think you have nothing to worry about. You are beautiful from what I've seen in your pics.  I would date you (LOL did i just say that?) But really, I would. Don't put yourself down. Pick yourself up. LFTM=Live for the moment...YOLO=You only live once...NGU=NEVER GIVE UP

Go on and try to tear me down. I will be rising from the ground, like a skyscraper

Love is louder than the pressure to be perfect
