Favorite Quote:
“Don't walk behind me; I may not lead. Don't walk in front of me; I may not follow. Just walk beside me and be my friend.”

I think and I listen
wishing I knew my way through life
wishing I could always be right

I make mistakes
but for no reason
I lose my sense
so I wont regret
I lose my sight
because I know what I do is wrong


Because life is to enjoy
is what the world says
this wont be a mistake
is what the soul says

My souls says
Yes... I love you
and I really do
but one day
I will move on and you will too
and it wont be a betrayal of my soul
but of yours too

When it lies, it lies to me too
It also lies between mine
like two ropes tied
but its not strong enough
because what it is inside me
its not only me
its a mentality

It wants
It wants what it cant have
and then its sad
and its lost
and it lies
and betrays
which stays for life
because its affected
I have now lost my sunshine

My soul is my truth
and if I don't know it
why believe,
If I have already betrayed myself who am I?

I wrote this poem for my English class it was to be an assignment about truth but then I decided to try and view it from someone else's point of view
