"Each day I have to make a new promise to myself
to be braver than my past
to be stronger than the struggle
So that I may find a bigger adventure regardless of the risks"
-Chrissie Pinney


Everything has a shadow,

Everyone has a secret,

Even the moon has a dark side.

We are all here, continuously
pretending to be normal.
Trying to fit into each other,
Like puzzles pieces,
when none of us were really meant to match.
No one knows what they are doing,
We've learned never to be who we are.
We have simply learned from others, never to show our scars.
Never to  be empowered, never to feel of love.
We are here together, not knowing what to dream of-
Everyone's inspired, but no one really tries.
Everyone has thoughts of jumping, to the other side.
We have to learn to make the choice, to lie here and to die,
Or to dream of happiness and to touch the sky.


The author's comments:

Don't be afraid to take risks to find happiness. Don't feel like you have to be who everyone is pressuring you to become. Be who you are without fear, and most importantly remember to understand that everyone is struggling.
