You're ugly
You're pretty
You're fat
You're skinny
You're wrong for this guy
He's wrong for you!
You have to be strong for friends and family
Let all your emotions out!
Light the torch and soak up the pain!
Don't ever touch the torch again!
Help your friend
Let this problem be where it ends
Listen to your teacher
Forget it!
Respect your mother
She's a jerk!
Stay true
Learn to love yourself
Stay silent
Remain non-violent


The author's comments:
My "good friends" have made "bad choices" and I have to listen to my conscience. I'm having a hard time tuning into my conscience.
