Favorite Quote:
“I'm selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best.”
― Marilyn Monroe

Dear Death,

I don’t understand you.

You hurt and you steal.

You never ever heal.

You bruise and you break.

You leave a gaping ache.

You take and don’t ask.

You hide under that mask.

“Oh, it's her time”

“She needed to go.”

Well, f*** you, Death. 

What do you know?

You take our children

And you take our mothers

You take our sisters

And you take our brothers

Why do you get to take them?

It’s not right, Death!

Please, let us stay.

Let us cherish every breath.

There is no life

Without each other

So give me my sister

Give me my brother

Leave us alone

We don't like your kind here

The kind that destroys us

With this thing that’s called fear. 

You come unexpected

Or you make your presence known

You take what we love

And leave us all alone

Please, just let us stay.

Let us worry tomorrow.

Let us treasure this day.

And forget all our sorrow.
