Favorite Quote:
Just because it shines, doesn't make it gold.

Open your eyes and wait,

I’m that nightmare that you hate.

It seems like I’m exactly what you don’t want,

but you're dreams I don’t wish to haunt.

Now I’m not a kid anymore

and I feel like you’re just a door

one I can push, but wont budge.

And now all you do is stand judge

the stronger you stand,

the more I’ll fight for a different land,

and the more you keep me on this side,

the more and more from you I will hide.

Soon I’ll be someone you don't know,

and when I decide to get up and go,

you'll wonder where you went wrong,

and I’ll tell you its when you held on too strong.

I wrote this when I felt like my parents were being too controlling, and these are the words I wanted to say to them, but never did.
