Favorite Quote:

The earth will shatter at my feet when I learn how to walk

The heavens will shake at my voice when I learn how to talk

The darkness will come to the light and all will be cured

At last when I truly awake I will have no fear

The long time in between is a journey which I will transcend

The suffering The Pain and the tears can’t be for nothing

I Don’t need no friends I can do this alone

I don’t even have family I am far away from home but yet I promise to remain strong

For everything I love I must continue my Ambitious heart won’t let me fall apart

My mom cried over me last week I’m sorry if I broke your heart

The things that I go through only make me stronger

But if I fail I want you all to know that I gave my all

I will not suffer from shoes clothes or even food to eat

I will only suffer from making sure I get to love my family for all of eternity.

To take care of you all I promise my mind body and soul all this pain is worth it as long as I can help

They don’t understand where I’m coming from but I see the bigger picture that everyone else is running from

One day its promised that I won’t know you and you won’t know me that is the promise of death

I’m going to make death swallow its words

All for the ones I love, so when I wake up tomorrow with the same ambition ill read this poem again and again, oh how much I love you. This is a journey I have chosen this is the path that my heart has lead.

The devastating heartbreaking teeth clenching tear drenching truth that I know.

I Will never give up In my Mind I know.

I can almost see it
That dream I'm dreaming but
There's a voice inside my head saying
You'll never reach it,
Every step I'm taking,
Every move I make feels
Lost with no direction
My faith is shaking but I
Gotta keep trying
Gotta keep my head held high.
