Favorite Quote:
“To me, “FEARLESS” is not the absence of fear. It’s not being completely unafraid. To me, FEARLESS is having fears. FEARLESS is having doubts. Lots of them. To me, FEARLESS is living in spite of those things that scare you to death. FEARLESS is falling madly in love again, even though you’ve been hurt before. FEARLESS is walking into your freshmen year of high school at fifteen. FEARLESS is getting back up and fighting for what you want over and over again… even though every time you’ve tried before, you’ve lost. It’s FEARLESS to have faith that someday things will change. FEARLESS is having the courage to say goodbye to someone who only hurts you, even if you can’t breathe without them. I think it’s FEARLESS to fall for your best friend, even though he’s in love with someone else. And when someone apologizes to you enough times for things they’ll never stop doing, I think it’s FEARLESS to stop believing them. It’s FEARLESS to say “you’re NOT sorry”, and walk away. I think loving someone despite what people think is FEARLESS. I think allowing yourself to cry on the bathroom floor is FEARLESS. Letting go is FEARLESS. Then, moving on and being alright…That’sFEARLESS too. But no matter what love throws at you, you have to believe in it. You have to believe in love stories and prince charmings and happily ever after. That’s why I write these songs. Because I think love is FEARLESS.”
― Taylor Swift


Trapped in this room alone
No one sees and no one knows
A little girl I never got to be
A grown up child was all they choose to see

Smile little darlin,
Its okay to close your eyes
Sleep tight, everything will be fine.

Midnight journeys to lands unknown.
All the kings and all the queens never took the time to see,
The ugly reality.
Like the witch had Snow white snowed,
They choose not to see what they do not know.

Fairytales and memories never seemed to be quite the scene

Like Rapunzel locked in tower far away,
So high up above.
Nothing to see when she looked around
Long locks were cut , no way to get down.

Smile little darlin.
Its okay to close your eyes
Sleep tight, everything will be fine.

Cinderella had her fairytale, then so it seemed,
Ripped away
No longer a fairytale dream.

Unlike Beauty no one takes the time to look beneath the beast.

Go ahead and cry little darlin.
You should know by now not to close your eyes
Because nothing ever turns out alright.

The author's comments:
venting helps me breathe,was the orginal "title" of this poem. there is alot of underlining stories and meanings in this poem. Ech verse contains its own small story retold through my eyes as a small child. fairytales were my favorite growing up. i used to paint a picture in my head of my life to cover up the wrong that was really going on.
