Favorite Quote:
All it takes is a split second to make a choice you'll regret the rest of your life. Life is short and the road is long so drive like hell and don't look back.

Voices of the dead,
Call them whatever you want,
But I can still hear them.
I hear them from the moment I wake up,
To the second I fall asleep,
I hear them at school,
In the car,
At work.
I hear them all the time,
Even when I don't want too,
Even when I'm with the love of my life,
24 hours a day 7 days a week.
I tend to yell and scream,
When they tell me things,
Everything I don't need to hear,
And what I don't want to hear.
But when I let them in,
They take me over,
Consuming me whole,
Every inch of me.....gone.
Yes, I've lost a quite few marbles,
Thanks to those voices,
That some call a blessing,
But it is not
A game,
A blessing,
Or a gift,
If anything it’s a curse,
But to you it’s a Mental Illness.
