Favorite Quote:
Someone's going to hurt you at some point in your life, but it is up to you to decide who is worth it, and who is not.


The taunting and the teasing
The pain they gave with words
The laughter and defiance
In this unrealistic world
The headaches and the heartaches
The stinging from the blade
All to calm that one feeling
The choice that she had made
How much more shall she endure?
Until she’s driven to the edge
She’ll risk it all to make everyone happy
So there
She’s finally dead

The author's comments:
This poem was derived from a short story that I had written. The moral of my story is to treat others with respect because you never know how the circle of life works or how what you say and/or do can affect those around you. What might seem like child's play to you, might mean something much more emotional and tragic for another.
