Favorite Quote:
& ultimately, he's going to find out: how you
chew, how you sip, how you hum, how you dance,
how you smell at every point in the day. The fact that
most of your friends are shallow. That you hate
sitting in an aisle seat, how you sometimes can't
seem to listen, how you get hyper when you travel,
how certain games or shows make you really happy,
how you get cranky because you're too stupid to
remember to sleep, how you don't like the way you look
in most of your pictures, how you can't get off the
phone when it's late, because you don't want to sound
like you care, how you have no ability to save receipts.
He's going to know all of it; everything about you,
he's going to know. & he's still going to love you.

Yours is the first face that I saw
My one eye open,
The light shined through
Learning my first lesson
That your first is your last
Nothing will shine
Quite as bright
Don’t try to understand
It’s not that easy…

For two split seconds,
The day was dark and grey
Brand new…
Students sprawled sleeping.
Pour my tears
Back into my cloud
My second lessons learned
Keeps me coming back for more
Just stitch my heart
Back into my chest
If only Elm. Were easy…

Three days into July
Last name expired,
Diamond settled on my
Third finger.
Daddy gave me away
You’ll stand by me?
Ill stand by you,
I do…

Four minutes left,
First death
Like the wind
My years flew
Eliminated future
Never a first again,
I’ve witnessed
The First Four days

In my perspective, its the main four days of your life. The kind of days you'll never forget, no matter what.
