Favorite Quote:
Remember the past, but don't live for it. Learn from the past, but don't dwell on it. Let go of the past, don't live in it. History can repeat itself, but only if you let it. So don't. Make the most out of life. After all, it's the only one you get.


Why does growing up have to be so challenging?
The whole world is telling us to grow up quickly,
And yet, they’re the same people pushing us down.
Please just let me be.
Let me graduate from high school
And go and get my college degree.
Just leave me alone and let me succeed.
I don’t need your discouragement or your disapproval.
My dreams aren’t put in this world anyways.
If they were, they wouldn’t come true.
They’d get washed up just like seaweed on the seashore,
Just like everyone else’s.
I want to fight the currents and the storms.
I have my dreams set on the life I want to have;
I’m going to do it.
This whole fight of the world against me has all ready been won.
I’m not falling for their pressure anymore.

In this poem, I'm taking a stand for what I want to do with my life. I've been told by too many people that I can't do something, but I know that I can do ANYTHING I set my mind on!
