Favorite Quote:
it is not the content of what you write about that makes literature enticing; it is the emotion you place into it

They take my pride
It is not mine it is not mine
They take my voice
I cannot sigh I cannot sigh
They take my tears
I do not cry I do not cry
They even take my silence
I do not try I do not try
To take back the things that
Once were mine that once were mine
They take my soul
It will not fly it will not fly
They take my change
I will not bribe I will not bribe
They take my nightfall
I see no sky I see no sky
They take my life
I am too shy I am too shy
These things are mine
These things are mine
They shall heal with time
They shall heal with time
