Favorite Quote:
Always remember, your haters are your biggest fans. Those who criticize you are only begging you to get better.

Loneliness, unhappiness, despair

Other words crumpled in my hair

Forgetfullness, laziness, words unsaid

Phrases found in my bed

Jealousy, envy, hate

Words I try to leave at my gate

These are the faults within me

That, too others, aren't so plain to see

My worst enemies are my friends

And my friends will be my end

For I am human, full and true

I am I and you are you

We have mistakes inside of us

That we have all learned to trust

For our faults are who we truly are

Like the fuel inside our car

But we have good in us too

That I will see as I meet you

Happiness, laughter, love

These things take flight, like a dove

Ecstacy, euphoria, content

Words to you I'd like to vent

Sad and mad won't go away

For though we're good, our faults will stay

This piece was inspired by the fact that no is perfect, and even though people are good inside, you'd be hard pressed to find someone without faults, because they make people who they are, and define us as humans.
