Favorite Quote:
Fairy tales are true, not because they tell us dragons exist, but because they tell us dragons can be beaten.

I am only a child, young and afraid
I'll admit I still cry sometimes,
And I'm often afraid in the dark.

I am only a girl, hurt and betrayed
I'll admit I was worried of the future,
And if I'd ever find someone to make my world light.

I am only a human, needing relief from charade
I've admitted my worst fears and best hopes
And now I've found a lantern to light my dark path.

The author's comments:
At some time in their life, everyone goes on a darker path. We may pretend to be strong, but we are only human. We all need a lantern to guide us back.
