Favorite Quote:
Never regret a day in your life. Good days give you happiness, bad days give you experience, worst days give lessons, and best days give memories.

Wake up stuck while I'm frozen in my bed

Contemplating the past in my pure mind

Wishing you can take back the things you said

Who said innocence is so hard to find

I love the thought of playing with dollies

And blowing out the dandelion fuzz

Instead, I fear the monster who saw me

A “naive girl” was just something I was

Shivering cold underneath my blanket

Reminiscing everything I've gone through

Thinking if I could have avoided it

But that is just something only God knew

The past is only something you learn from,

The struggles are not meant to make you numb
