Favorite Quote:
Never Back Down, Never Quit.

I will not criticize,
because I still have my pride.
I will not waste my words,
on someone who will not listen.
On someone who blocks out anything they do not want to hear.
Lies are such a deadly thing,
they will haunt the one who speaks them forever.
So for now I will give you some advice,
bite your tongue and think twice.
