Favorite Quote:
“I'm selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best.”
― Marilyn Monroe <3

There once was a girl,
who believed
life was like a pearl,
she never believed,
she'd be so deceived.
She once thought,
there was no crime.
Oh, but she was taught.
She WANTED to believe everyone was just a mime.
Everybody is good?
No, that's made up.
People weren't bad only in the hood.
Sit down child, listen up!
But, after looking and listening,
the child had seen,
that life was not glistening,
nobody really kept their words clean.
Now this girl is grown up.
For now she has learned,
to keep her head up,
and she'll get what she's earned.

Just a simple piece about growing and learning. Very old and one of my firsts written.
