Favorite Quote:
"Let us go then, you and I/When the evening is spread out against the sky/Like a patient etherized upon a table/Let us go, through certain half-deserted streets/The muttering retreats/Of restless nights in one-night cheap hotels/And sawdust restaurants with oyster-shells/Streets that follow like a tedious argument/Of insidious intent/To lead you to an overwhelming question .../Oh, do not ask, “What is it?”/Let us go and make our visit."

Am I good enough?
All my life I’ve been treated rough
I’m not brave or tough
All my life I’ve been beaten down
All I want is to be buried in the ground
The dirt that muffles all the sound
Drowning in the dark
Have I even made my mark?
All it takes is just one painful remark
For me to stay up all night
With tears on my face, losing the fight
Is this even right?
It burns so bad
I’ve never been this sad
Depression is not a fad
She tries to help, I see the love in her eyes
But she doesn’t see the parts of me that I despise
She can barely hear my desperate cries
