Favorite Quote:
Good things come to those who wait

Lying here in my fate,
cant see whats coming next.
The walls spinning 'round me
trying to find whats left.

Unconsciousness taking over
and feelings with no despair.
Sorting out my life
Finding out who cares.

Dark shadows are eager to take over,
fighting my battle, tougher and tougher.
angel on left and satan on right,
defining whats good, keep up my fight.

Good and bad hemmed into my heart,
unstitching the evil part by part.
Problems arise and push them away,
cant seem to hide, wanting to stay.

Walk through my mind
and take a look at my life.
praying to God, day and night.

"Take the scars away,
I promise to do good.
Take the scars away....
im trying here....look!

perspective has changed,
left my pride to hang.
the only thing left,
i have yet to find.
trying my hardest to leave this beind.

my heart is good, cant you see?]
my heart is good, please oh please!

look through the dark
and see the truth
look deep inside, and you will see.
Its time to leave
and be what is meant to be.
