Favorite Quote:
Be who you are. Don't be anything less.
Strength isn't just measured by how much pain you can take.

Can't you see it
The tears I hide
When you're looking away
The quiver in my voice
Shaking me through my skin
All as simple as to please you
The one who set
My standards out of reach
Who expects
More than I can give
My hurt means
When the power lies
In your hands
The ones I thought I knew
The ones that try
And suffocate me so
What happened to you?
Has greed blocked
Your view of the whole
Or was it all
Just lies and
But the truth is,
No matter how
Many times
You beat me against
The wall
Or how many times
You laugh as I bleed,
I forgive you
