Favorite Quote:
Friendship is when people know all about you, but like you anyway


Numb to the touch
Nothing appears to be real
Pressured by a society
Telling her
What she’s authorized
To feel

An artificial smile
Plastered
To deceive
She illustrates a happiness
Which others yearn
To see

Her existence
Solely complying
With what
She believes
To be expected

Her life
An act
Which criticisms
Have directed

Everywhere, man blames nature and fate, yet his fate is only the echo of his character and passions, his mistakes and his weaknesses
