Favorite Quote:
Be a leader, not a follower

You are in a box
You don't know how you got there, but you are
The world seems smaller and the skies are darker
The loneliness is strong to make you choke like you swallowed air and water
And the silence is gripping like hands to your throat almost like its about to slaughter
You try to get out but its sealed from the outside
So you take another route and decide to close your eyes
And you squeeze them tight so bright pixels form in your sight

And when you open your eyes the world is darker than you could imagine
So you put your hand in front of your face but its a challenge
Because you realize that you've opened your eyes, but its still dark.
