Favorite Quote:
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn't serve the world. There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We are born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us, it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
-Marianne Williamson


Welcome to my silly life
Mistreated, misplaced, misunderstood
I don't remember a moment I tried to forget
'Cause we're living at the mercy of
The pain and the fear
I'm only up when you're not down
I can be so mean when I wanna be
I'm capable of really anything
I cut you into pieces
But my heart is broken
Please don't leave me
No pain inside, you're my protection
you took my hand, you showed me round
you promised me, you'd be around
i took your hand and i believed
in everything you said to me
don't wanna be my friend no more
wanna be somebody else
please don't come around
talkin' bout you love me
cause that love shit aint for me
nobody knows the rhythm of my heart
no one is real, i hate the way they act
beat me to the ground and take my breath
but you can’t take who i am
it’s not right but it’s okay
Father, Father, Father help us
Please send some guidance from above
Cause people got me questionin
Where is the love?
Maybe i’m crazy,
Maybe i’m the only one,
Maybe im out of touch,
Maybe ive just had enough,
And maybe it’s time for change
And leave it all behind
I’ve never been one to walk alone
Ive always been scared to try.
Let’s paint the picture of the perfect place.
That’s what keeps us apart
And i need you to understand
Father can you hear me?
I’m calling out your name.
If you only knew what the future holds
After a hurricane comes a rainbow.
When we live such fragile lives,
It’s the best way to survive.
Thanks for the memories
Even though they weren’t so great.
Tell the world im coming,
Back where i belong, yeah never felt so strong
Sweet ,sweet T & T Oh how I love up dis country
Sweet ,sweet T & T No place in dis world I'd rather be
Izatrini
p.s and we make gud company.
