Favorite Quote:
The important thing is not to be bitter over life's disappointments. Learn to let go of the past. And recognize that every day won't be sunny, and when you find yourself lost in the darkness and despair, remember it's only in the black of night you see the stars. And those stars will lead you back home. So don't be afraid to make mistakes, to stumble and fall, cause most of the time, the greatest rewards come from doing the things that scare you the most. Maybe you'll get everything you wish for. Maybe you'll get more than you ever could have imagined. Who knows where life will take you. The road is long and in the end, the journey is the destination. -one tree hill ♥


Stuck in the corners
of my memory.
Can't seem to find
a place for me.
Now I see it in your eyes
that it was all just one big lie.
How could you do this to me?

Chorus:
What do I have to do to belong?
I try to walk with my head tall
Baby can't you see I'm not this strong
You left me alone to wait in the cold
Thought you were the one
but now I'm done.

Tired of wasting all this time
That stupid smile on your face
is where you hide
You want to betray me
I don't play that game
I'm done, I'm gone
So I'll leave you behind

Chorus:
What do I have to do to belong?
I try to walk with my head tall
Baby can't you see I'm not this strong
You left me alone to wait in the cold
Thought you were the one
but now I'm done.

Don't waste your time
trying to apologize
It don't mean a thing
So now I'm off to find
that piece of my heart I left behind
Don't wanna see that face anymore
Goodbye, so long my dear, farewell
I'm done, I'm gone, and baby you were so wrong.

I wrote this for an assignment during a poetry unit in 10th grade and it actually turned out to be pretty good.
