"The most courageous act is still to think for yourself. Aloud."- Coco Chanel
Life isn't about surviving the storm, it's about learning to dance in the rain.


She had my eyes,
They said,
The doctors in their crisp white uniforms,
And sympathetic smiles.
Eyes that would never open,
Would never be blinded by love,
Or shocked wide in surprise.

Had she grown,
They said,
She would have had my auburn curls,
But now,
Never will she be called
Carrot top,
Or swish her head from side to side like a,
Pantene commercial.

Now all she has is,
Her little brown box,
Full of my hopes and dreams,
And prayers.
Packed with nine months of stretch marks,
And midnight morning sickness.

I always said that I would love her,
To the,
Heavens and back,
I guess its just to the,
Heavens now.

You know how it hurts when everything falls apart
And it seems like the world is crashing at my feet
You like me the best, when I'm a mess
When I'm my own worst enemy
You make me feel beautiful
When I have nothing left to prove
And I can't imagine

i love this keep it up

This is beautiful, and the meaning is definitely sad. I hope this wasn't from personal experience, though. Thank you for the comments, they brightened my day.

Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in my, and lead me in the way everlasting. Psalm 139:23-24.

This is precious. I can't imagine the pain. It's almost like there isn't much emotion in it, because too much was felt when the girl died? Either way it's nice.
