Favorite Quote:
you never know how strong you are until being strong is the only choice you have

So tired of hearing them fight
So tired of their drama

Sometimes I wish I could disappear
Or float forever in space

They push the limits
Of my sanity
They drive me closer to the edge
Of nothingness

Sometimes I wish I were a fish
Or a bird
Forever free to ride the currents

Unthinkingly, they squeeze my little heart
Kicking happiness out the door
Inviting pain and anger
That swallows childish happiness

Sometimes I wish I could be free
From the cozy little prison
They set up just for me

my parents are smothering me and they hurt me whether they know it or not.
