Favorite Quote:
You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something, sometime in your life. (Wintson Churchill)


Lying awake
Her eyes start to open
And she stares in pain
At the ceiling
It's blank

There's nothing to comfort her
Nothing anymore
No one to hold her

And she knows for sure
That the mountains she climbs every day
Will slowly start to fade
Into the background

Nothing matters now
Everyone seems to grow old

And she begins to see how
It starts out right now
With drifting slowly away

Just another ordinary day
She doesn't talk to anyone
She just drifts on by
And tries to hide the tears she cries
No one sees her pain

The mountains she climbs every day
Have slowly begun to fade
Into the background

Nothing matters now
Everyone has gone home

And right now
She begins to see how
It starts out day by day
With drifting away
