Favorite Quote:
The more control you have over yourself, the less control others have over you.


Her heart a secret garden
with walls so very high,
her soul a wilted rose
where innocence had died.
Her eyes a sunken petal
mirroring guilt and pain,
her voice a cracking leaf
chokes as if a chain.
Speaking to the flowers
hearing echoes of the past
questioning her worth
she wonders if this lasts.
