Favorite Quote:
“I'm selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best.”
― Marilyn Monroe

I was drafted mother
I need to leave
No, son
Stay with me please

I need to fight mother
I’m what they need
No, son
I don’t know if you’ll ever be freed

Just be strong mother
You will end up proud
No, son
What if you’re never found?

Have faith in me mother
I will be fine
No, son
Just the thought of you hurt will make me cry

I will be trained mother
They will teach me how to survive
No, son
That won’t matter if you’re not in the right place at the right time

God is watching over me mother
What’s meant to be will happen
No, son
Your young, your fate isn’t supposed to be fastened

I’m sorry mother
I love you so!
No, son
I won’t let you go
