Favorite Quote:
When walking down a path unknown, turn back and find your way.


Tearing me apart.

Missing what I once had,
Right from the start.

Where must I go?
Only one will take me in.

When I find where I’m going,
My journey will begin.

A new start to my life,
This is just what I need.

But like a vampire that is hungry,
This fiend needs to feed.

Sucking the life out of me,
Effectively this pain.

As I try to escape,
The Jaws of Life still remains.

They are holding me down,
Constricting me like a snake.

No one can stop me,
Or the choices I make.

The author's comments:
I am the type of person that would be looked at as someone who would never write poetry. Although when some people do find out, they like my writing. In this piece I was kicked out of my house, and the feelings just flowed onto the page.
