Favorite Quote:
We all have these things, that no one can see. They hold us down like anchors, they drown us out at sea.


I know I have a name,
A face,
And a voice.

I know I have a heart,
A love,
And a song.

I know I have two eyes,
A vision,
And a dream.

I know I have a past,
A present,
And a future.

I know I’m someone,
Anyone,
And no one.

But the harder I try,
The more I’m warped into fairytale,
A fable,
Nothing more than I lie.

I look inside,
Really, I do.

I try,
And I try,
And I try.
But, I just can’t seem to find who.

Who am I?

The sky?
No

The sea?
No.

The stars?
No.

Me?
Possibly.
