Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about learning to dance in the rain.


You ask me of my dreams
But I can’t tell you a single one.
My fingers curl
As if trying to grasp
The smoke around my head
From all my pretty little pipe dreams.

Of course I have dreams!
It’s just…
As of late,
I’ve seen too many
Not broken but bruised
Ridiculed but not rejected.

Bruises are not deep gashes
But my lips are swollen shut from all the punches life dealt me.
So as I heal all’s I ask is
Privacy please.

Oh honey, just wait until it's time to grow up. You'll see what I mean.

And then the Peter Pan...HOW DO YOU KNOW OF ALL THE FANDOMS I L♥VE?! D'; Thank you, first off. I really need to scan the illistration of this poem,,,Post it. *Awesome*...Kinda. I once wanted to go to Neverland...My bestfriend and I. Once, I even saw the red, second star to the right...But that night her grandmother (rather OUR grandmother) took a ride in an ambulance so I whispered to the sky "Not now. I have to stay and help..." And I've never seen that star again.
