Favorite Quote:
"He’s not perfect. You aren’t either, and the two of you will never be perfect. But if he can make you laugh at least once, causes you to think twice, and if he admits to being human and making mistakes, hold onto him and give him the most you can. He isn’t going to quote poetry, he’s not thinking about you every moment, but he will give you a part of him that he knows you could break. Don’t hurt him, don’t change him, and don’t expect for more than he can give. Don’t analyze. Smile when he makes you happy, yell when he makes you mad, and miss him when he’s not there. Love hard when there is love to be had. Because perfect guys don’t exist, but there’s always one guy that is perfect for you."
— Bob Marley

I have waited all my life,
For truth and reality

I have always waited for a family
Neither fake or imposters but,
Tangible being able to hold dear
I have strived for love,
Also to be loved forevermore

My past wasn't the greatest
I didn't have family
I didn't have people,
To actually lean and cry on or even to trust with all my ability.

I was always moving,
I was always leaving
I could not even get close,
to anyone or anything
I could not love
I could not trust

I tried to get close
I tried to love them
I always got ripped away
I always had to leave.

Now I am home
I can't leave
Now I have a real family
I know where my heart belongs
I know where my soul is
I know who to lean on
I can love and be loved
I can trust and be trusted

I know where I belong,
and my heart and soul belongs.

My destiny told me to come back
My destiny was to be saved
I am home in my families arms
I am loved,
I am held dear.

I have waited my whole entire life,
Seems like years, to be home
Now I am home forevermore
As though my heart is stuck,
and will never leave my home.
