Favorite Quote:
We are built up by bones which empower us to walk, stand, and run. Yet, if we were built up by emotions, we would all without a doubt collapse

Music drowns out the poison

Of this world that calls my name

I hate to be identified

With this world of hate and shame

So I bury all my worries

I let the music play

Turning up the volume loud

So I can't hear what they say

But above all the sounds

Pulsating through my head

I begin to hear a whisper

Of something, someone said

I switch the button to stop

As my conscience returns to me

I listen to their words

And reenter this reality

Our conversation grows dull

And my awareness starts to fade

I give them I final smile

Before i decide to walk away

Then I put my headphones in

As I resume my life again

Switch the button back to play

Hoping this song will never end.
