Favorite Quote:
"Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars."

There was carelessness:

I had been a witness to horrible crimes.
I had done nothing.
I had tried to escape it all.

There was pain:

I was laid across the ground.
I was broken and in pieces.
I was lost to this world.

There was a prayer:

I felt you beside me.
I realized how much you understood.
I understood how much you cared.

There was hope:

I will become stronger beside you.
I will remain loyal.
I will grow with you.

There was trust:

I am a better person.
I am finally smiling.
I am in love with you.

This is happiness.
