Favorite Quote:
"Oh yes, the past can hurt, but the way i see it you can either run from it or learn from it." - The Lion King

Everyday I suffer
Waiting to be saved
Screaming for the world
Hearing only pain

Thoughts barely forming

As false promises remain

Becoming the only solid thought

Forming in my brain

The pain subsides

The numbing begins

For this is the life

I was chosen to live

As I remain

As I remain

The author's comments:
Well were learning about the war in Sierra Leone and how kids were being murdered or turned into soldiers. and about all the horrible things that happened during that time. So that kind of inspired me to write this.
