Favorite Quote:
“Happiness can be found in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.” - Albus Dumbledore

They love, show, fear, smile, hate
When the hate comes out,
Hurt forms
Anything can happen,
a life crippled, ruined, shattered, destroyed,
Whether you meant it,
or was just having fun
The damage has been done,
No friends
No family
No life
Nothing good comes out of it
So why hate?
Smile, laugh, love
See everyone for who they really are
Don’t intimidate
Don’t judge
Don’t discriminate
Look through their eyes
Is this what you want,
Or what they want?
Taking down gets you nothing,
Bringing up gives you a smile, kind words, happiness
Words can change your attitude
Your life,
And everything you know
Words can make positive changes too
