You will never leave where you are, until you decide where you'd rather be.

I'll wish you here,
Just so I can wish you away,
And I hope you'll hear,
What I'm really trying to say,
Though the story remains the same,
I'm not into the game,
You so love to play,

So I'll tie my tale to a balloon,
And somehow hope it wont find you,
This broken guise,
We wore so well,
Our broken smiles,
Oh, the stories we'll tell,
Of one another,
Of each other,
And they say.
Borderline the truth,
And tiptoe around the lie,
But I'm not quite sure,
What I'm looking to find.

What doesn't kill you only makes you stronger.

Don't let the fear of striking out keep you from playing the game.

Dream like you will live forever, live like you will die today.

I don't really understand this poem... Maybe if I spent a long time poring over it I'd get it but I think it's a bit too vague. It is prettily written, though, and it makes you want to know what happened.
