"Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light" ~Albus Dumbledore


I’m trapped
There’s no escape
The walls are caving in on me
Closer, closer
And with every inch they move towards me,
I get bigger and bigger
More strong, more powerful.
Then I wake up from this dream
It’s not far from reality.
I’m still trapped
There’s still no escape
The walls are still caving in on me
Closer, closer
But with every inch they move towards me
I get smaller and smaller
Less strong, less powerful
More weak, more hopeless

Just a shout out to my "brother" Aaron. Because without him I would have never had the courage to submit a poem to this site! <3

at first, I say how I'm becomming stronger from my hardships but then I realize it was all a dream and I'm still in the same situation but the hardship is making me weaker. does that make sence?

Insult my clothes, I say, “Okay, thanks for the compliment.”
Insult the way I look, I say, “Thanks for notifying me.”
Mock me and say riding isn’t a sport, and I’ll say,”You say that ’cause you can’t ride.” But before you make fun of my horse, make sure you have “911″ on your speed dial.

wow! that felt intense! Great job!
