Favorite Quote:
"so do it. Decide. Is this the person you want to be? Is this the life you want to live? Is this the best you can be?"
"I survived the fire because the fire within me burns brighter than the one around me"

I am the poet writing of my pain.
I am the girl, pushing everyone away.
I am a butterfly, trapped within her cocoon.
I am the girl sitting next to you.
I am the flame igniting the fuel
You are the one who acts so cruel
I am a raging sea, trapped within a raindrop
I am the one wanting the lies to just stop
I am the one asking you to care
Please, I am begging you, please be there.
