Favorite Quote:
as if no one is watching

as if you've never been hurt

as if the joke never ends

as if no one can hear you

as though heaven is on earth

In my world
There is a lot of violence
When I sleep
There is no silence

Ambulance sirens drown out the air
Darkening the night with despair
In my world
There is no light
Happiness is kind of hard to find
You can't give up though
The end is nowhere near
All we have to do is learn to submerge our fears

I wrote this thinking about all the violence in my community
