Favorite Quote:
I wanna leave my footprints on the sands of time
Know there was something that, meant something that I left behind
When I leave this world, I'll leave no regrets
Leave something to remember, so they won't forget

I was here
I lived, I loved
I was here
I did, I've done everything that I wanted
And it was more than I thought it would be
I will leave my mark so everyone will know
I was here

I want to say I lived each day, until I died
And know that I meant something in, somebody's life
The hearts I have touched, will be the proof that I leave
That I made a difference, and this world will see

I was here
I lived, I loved
I was here
I did, I've done everything that I wanted
And it was more than I thought it would be
I will leave my mark so everyone will know

I was here
I lived, I loved
I was here
I did, I've done everything that I wanted
And it was more than I thought it would be
I will leave my mark so everyone will know
I was here

I just want them to know
That I gave my all, did my best
Brought someone some happiness
Left this world a little better just because

I was here


With you gone I feel so lost inside.
I lie alone in my bed.
It's dark and cold in my room.
The tears rolling down my face
feel like ice against my cheeks.
My hands are shaking.
I reach for a piece
of shattered glass
from another fight.
My whole body has goosebumps.
As the glass digs into my skin, something hits me.
There's a weight that's been lifted from my shoulders.
With tears in my eyes
and blood on my hands,
I stand up and look at myself.
I am finally strong enough
Strong enough to say no,
I've had enough.
I'm sick of this pain!
I wash off the blood,
and throw out the glass.
There will be no more of this.
It ends tonight!
