Favorite Quote:
Hatred and bitterness can never cure the disease of fear; only love can do that. Hatred paralyzes life, love releases it. Hatred confuses life. Love harmonizes it. Hatred darkens life; love iluminates it.

- Martin Luther King, Jr.

Please someone wake me up
Get me out of here!
Hardly they can walk
All of them are stuck
No one can believe what I think or feel,
My suffering is intense ,
I'm living in a parallel world, different
From the one they know, filled with hail, loneliness,
Questions without answers and remote dreams
And still you see the fingers that point you
For being different,
Looks that kill, words that hurt
And gestures that mark your heart
And make you feel like a run over dog
In the street by a drunk driver
To escape is what you desire, to have wings and leave
Flying to a place where peace exists
Please let me live I want to be happy
Touch me and you’ll see that I’m made up
Of flesh and bones, I also feel!
Can’t you see my tears?
God help me, blessed is your will
But since this cross you have put
On me, give me the strength to reach
