Favorite Quote:
"Sometimes people are beautiful. Not in looks. Not in what they say. Just in what they are.”

“Don't tell me the moon is shining; show me the glint of light on broken glass.”
― Anton Chekhov

“The role of a writer is not to say what we can all say, but what we are unable to say.”
― Anaïs Nin

As I walk the hallway I hear someone say,
“My look at the girl, coming this way!”
As usual, I stride like a model on the catwalk or
I pretend they're just fans coming to gawk.

Some things you'll never get to see,
Unless you were as tall as me.
I see the world from a different view,
As I stand taller than you.

Many people stop and stare,
When they see me so tall standing there.
I've grown accustomed to your gaze,
while some may shun me, some are amazed.

I'll never slump my shoulders
I'll always hold my head high and
I'll look the world square in the eye
