Favorite Quote:
you're only as tall
as your heart will let you be
and you're only as small
as the world will make you seem
and when the going gets rough
and you feel like you may fall
just look on the bright side
your roughly six feet tall

And the fear I hold so deeply inside me is coming out again.
My world is unfolding before my eyes, its crumbling like ruins
One more mistake sets the house on flames
My memories will forever be shattered
The people I once thought I knew, their changing.
But what can I do?
If I stand firm to my opinion and let my voice be heard
I’ll be caught in the war that has sparked inside the home.
I’ll be captured and thrown into a dungeon that’s not a home.
I’ll be treated like a criminal in faraway lands.
So when your house burns to flames
And your loved ones battled a bloody war
Where will you stand?
