Favorite Quote:
If you chase two rabbits, you will lose them both.

Do not go gentle into that good night but rage, rage against the dying of the light.
- Dylan Thomas

What is past is past -- it is the present and the future that concern us.
- Hiawatha, founder of the Iroquois Confederacy


Nothing I do is ever enough

I always live in someone else’s shadow

My true self I bury down below

I am carved from pain

I am misunderstood

I would open my mouth to complain

If only I could

I wish to lay my secrets bare

I want to be loved for being me

After my struggles, I really don’t care

I’m tired of this cruelty

I can’t forget the promises I’ve made

Even as I begin to fade
