I know it's a random quote but I love it all the same!!!


As I lay here on the ground I see them pass me, I see them watch me, I see them laughing. Why do they act like I cannot hear them? Why do they think they are superior? As they pass I realize my place. The child of shadows, the child of darkness, the child of nothing. But as I look up I see a light. I see a hope. I see a life worth living. I run towards it not stopping, not listening, not wanting. As they tell me I cannot make it, I will try.

My parents don't think I should pursue writing because it's not a good paying job. But they don't understand it's not just a source of income, it is a life.

This was really good, almost like a poetic journal entry. Keep writing!
