Favorite Quote:
Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one’s definition of your life; define yourself.

I prefer 'Iloveyou' to 'I love you' because there are no spaces for other people to come between us.


Quick!
Turn away
Hurry before
You want to portray
Everything that society
Has forced upon us
That person you see in the mirror?
She's beauteous
I wish you'd take off that mask
The one you hide behind
Don't worry about looks
That's society's frame of mind
You are beautiful
No matter what anyone will say
And no one on this Earth
Could ever take that away

Nobody should ever have to give in to what society thinks is 'beautiful'.
