Favorite Quote:
"You don't have to be the best, you just have to care the most."

So many secrets told. So many secrets kept.
So many secrets heard and so many spoken of.

I am a broken book. My life is shattered pages.
My stories are the words, my friends are the pages,
and my words are all the letters.

I have often wished that I could forget the words
to my favorites books so that I could read them again,
but not my story. It’s made me who I am.
All the secrets etched onto my broken heart carve away at my life.

But also, they build a wall that I may hide behind.
Blinded by the blatant truth
and hidden from the outside world,
Deep inside my shattered book,
surrounded by broken promises and scattered lies.

In the binding,
I find truth
and within truth
lies the strength of one,
strong like a diamond,
worn like a childhood teddy-bear.

I’ve fought my way to where I am.
I’ve fought myself for who I am
yet I’ve been kept on a dusty shelf,
with no other pages to accompany my own.
Until now.
Now that I’ve found you.
