Favorite Quote:
A room without books is like a body without a soul.

It takes strength to cry.
To let your tear ducts go on overload.
To be sad.
It takes strength.
It takes strength to cry.
It takes a certain weakness to hold it together.
To hold it all in until you get a headache.
It takes strength to cry.

I wrote this piece recently because someone at my school died and I found myself holding back tears when I just needed to let them out.
