Favorite Quote:
There is freedom waiting for you,
on the breezes of the sky.
And you ask: "What if I fall?"
Oh but my darling, what if you fly? -E.H.

I promise no more of what I'm fighting for,

I cannot prove I'm right.

I won't tell all the thoughts that fell,

I'll let them take their flight.

But that never means it has changed for me,

if I just hold back my tongue.

I'll carry the truth with underlying proof,

that I was never wrong.

I'm waiting for the day where you ask me to say,

what I think of you.

Because of course I'll lie, and smile a goodbye,

knowing what it'll do.

No one believes what I have now seen,

how you whine like a spoiled child.

Just know if I speak, please take a seat,

we'll be here awhile.

This poem is about a person I don't really get along with. That's about all I can say.
