Favorite Quote:
Play with fire alone, get burned. Play with fire around others, get burned down.

The delicate glass,
Smooth and placid
Like the act
I put on, day in and day out

Like a mirror,
I mimic those around me
Blending myself in,
Yet, no matter how hard I try
I continue to stand out

I reflect what they want to see
I reflect how they want me to act
I am basically reflecting them back

I have lost myself inside of this sea
Where girls act a certain way
And guys are all football jocks

Like a mirror,
I reflect back the lives of those around me,
No matter how pathetic.

The author's comments:
This is about my love life and school life. How I hang with people who are mean and degrading but are 'popular' so this is what kind of inspired this.
