Favorite Quote:
''If you're going to insult somebody, walk a mile in their shoes first. Because, then they won't be able to hurt you, AND you'll have their shoes. Bonus!

They berate you and try to bring you down
Breaking you in, like a beast to the pound
But they cannot tame you,
You are what you are,
And that is quite natural.

There's a step in your strut,
And a swing to your hips;
You were one of the few born
With a word poised right on your lips.

Like a bird taking flight,
There are things you must learn
Such as knowing which few are trustworthy and knowing
-simply knowing-
There is no such thing as perfect a world.

So before you do chance
Please let you be aware
You've a joy the glassy-eyed people are naught to take away.
Look in a mirror, dear child,
lovely child.
You've a spark to your eye
I do envy.
