Favorite Quote:
"Said we go to war just to bring us together, I believe in Love, I believe in forever..."

"Eyes see everything..." -Devon Torble,

"Caught up in love"- Joseph M. Lyons,

"I speak my words, through a broken truth,
...I bite my lip, and taste its guilt,
I see heaven on the horizon, but I turn my back,
Paradise must wait,
For when it dies,
The truth shall be revealed…" - Joseph Michael Lyons,

"Seen through an angel’s eyes,
I’ve found love where it truly lies,
And when that angel cries,
All my pain slowly dies…" - Cassandra Burnes and Joseph Lyons

I am…
I am the person…

The person you look at twice,
I am the person that you move away from when I sit by you,
I am the person you talk and about and laugh behind my back,
I am the person you hate for no reason,
I am the person you deny knowing,
I am the person you will not befriend,
And above all…
I am the person you rejected.

But there is one simple fact that you refused to see,
And that is that…
I am just a person like you,
Even if your eyes tell you different,
I am your friend,
I am your helper,
I am the one who listens,
I am the one who cares,
I am the one who fights for you and protects you,
I am the one who encourages you,
I am the one who nurses you back to health…

But most important thing you neglected to see though that wall of shame, hatred, and blind ignorance is that…
I am human…
Just like you…
