Favorite Quote:
May your path be ever true, and your paws never tire.

He tells me I’m like blue in the ocean…
Yet I’d rather be a star in the sky.
Perhaps all the stars are similar –
But every single one of them knows how to shine.
It’s enough just to say I’m ambitious
At least, more than he thinks I am.
Still, I wish he would stop all the griping.
Aren’t daddies supposed to be their girls biggest fan?
So what if I’m like blue in the ocean?
My water will find something new.
Then I’ll prove that I am something special –
Everyone is. Me and you.

The author's comments:
Honestly, this was inspired by a rare moment of anger towards my father... Who has been complaining about me every time I talked to him today. It made me remember how he tells me, often, that while I try to be different from everyone else, in some way I am just the same.
