Favorite Quote:
one of the greatest tragedies of our time is this impression that has been created that science and religion have to be at war.
-Francis Collins

Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, and in purity.
-1 Timothy 4:12, NIV Bible For Teen Guys

I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.

"Look at me!" I would shout and cry

To those who were passing by

Desperatly trying to turn their heads

But that was me, without my meds 


I would jump up and down and run through the house

But when my meds kick in, I silently scurry like a like a mouse

Throughout the day, I keep to my self and do my school

But when my meds where off, I act like an utter fool


"Why am i two faces of a coin?!?" I'd wonder

Then i realized the spell i was under

My personality was switching between calm and shrill

Because of one tiny red pill
