"We're in the present not the future. The only thing we can do now is listen to our hearts and pay for it later with the satisfaction of knowing we did something actually worthwhile." -Jasmine Garver


The Shadow of their souls linger in the air
Making my heart skip beats and my eyes stop and stare
The memory of these people are certainly irreplaceable and true
Thinking about them knocks me over and I see black and blue
As the shadows move from room to room
I know I have to make a choice and decide
If I live on distressed and depressed or happy and choose to confide
The choice is mine that I have to make
If I don't and keep on living I'd just be a fake
So help me now, I have to choose
Let me escape and be free from this ruse
