Favorite Quote:
Stand up for something even if it Means standing up alone.

My skate shoes
rebelled against my will
as they slipped off my heals
which was the only thing
making my prescence known

I ran
unwillingly laughing along the way
as my hair was carried
behind my back
the coolness of the night
comforted me
like a blanket does a child

A bubble of laughter escaped my unwilling throat
A smile spread across my unwilling cheeks
As I hurry to write there words down
So I can get back to the illegal fireworks over yonder
