War Zone

Sobs and streaked faces,
Hurtful remarks and unsafe places,
Police sirens ringing through the air,
as I sit in my room trying not to care,
Handcuffs chained, doors locked,
when I told my friends they were so shocked,

I won't forget the day,
when my entire life went down the drain..

My favorite quote is when Christopher Robin said to Pooh "Promise my you'll always remember, you are braver than you believe, stronger than you feel, and smarter than you think."

I relate to this soooo much. You did really go. I remember a day just that.
