Favorite Quote:
"Happiness can be found even through the darkest of the night. But only if one remembers to turn on the light." - Albus Dumbledore

Hair flying in the wind.
Eyes watering from the speed.
Holding on for dear life.
Screaming stop but yet never wanting to.

Waiting for the first hit.
Waiting in anticipation.
Waiting once more.
Waiting again but this time scared to fight what’s coming.

Angry and miserable.
Sad and pained.
Lost and found
But never saved.

Stuck in the same place.
With no way out.
Looking for a way.
But it’s never found.

The questions asked every single day.
Are you okay?
Are you sure?
Is there anything I can do?

The answers given with no change.
Yeah, I’m fine.

Moving too fast?
But it gets slower.
Scared to fight?
More courage comes your way.
Lost in the darkness?
But then the light came.
No way out?
Well the key is right there.
Life is too painful?
Then make a change.
But I’m standing right there.

My inspiration came from my peers. Even from conversations and feelings that I've had myself. I hope that other people will be able to relate to the feeling of being held down and not being able to have a normal happy teenage life. May be even get inspired.
