Favorite Quote:
¨Wicked people never have time for reading. It´s one of their reasons for wickedness.¨ Lemony Snicket

Why do you restrain yourself,

Why don´t you fly free,

Place every fear upon a shelf,

Will you finally see,

The world is at your grasp each day,

If you would only reach,

A risk is a small price to pay,

But this small price can teach,

Oppurtunity is right in front of you,

All it takes is for you to try,

Soon you could see success too,

Soon you could fly,

Speak up for once and smile twice,

Through every struggle hold on,

I know that an easy success sounds nice,

But it was worth nothing if it didn´t ask you to stay strong,


In the end it will be worth it,

But you will never know,

You never tried bit,

Now what you lack will show,

You never took grasp of your flaws,

Never made them something new,

Now there are marks of regret from pain´s fatefull paws,

Oh only if you knew,


If you ever do succeed,

I advise you never to boast,

Use these victories to lead,

For a modest leader is always remebered the most,

You did none of this for fame,

You did all of this to prove,

Prove that your flaws are not what you blame,

Because your flaws made you move,


Stand up in victory,

Stand up with grace,

Stand up with wisdom,

A smile upon your face,

If you do fall,

Just look to the sky,

Remeber why you stand tall,

It´s because faliure allowed a sky full of stars to fill your eyes,
