Favorite Quote:
“You can be depressed and still have joy. You can be suicidal and still have joy. We all stop thinking and we all stop talking and we all stop sharing and we all stop creating, because by doing any of these things we quickly find out just how unhappy we are. But that’s okay. That’s normal. Don’t let the fear of unhappiness cripple your pursuit of finding what it is you believe.”
― Tyler Joseph

It was so funny!
My dog would play with me every day.
When I got home from school,
When I was alone,
I could always find him there.
He ran out into the yard,
So I chased after him.

Then he ran towards the road.
I told him to move out of the way,
But he couldn’t understand.
Then came a car,
So I yelled.
My dog was dead.
It wasn’t even funny.
