The echo in my ear of all the hurt and pain, from the time I was younger and more I had to gain. All that I kept inside and I can't seem to get out, it's like a stomach full of words I want to shout. I feel like the tree stands alone and the world is giving up on me, as if I don't belong or wasn't meant to be. do other teenagers go through the same, when they choose the wrong name to claim. Although I try so hard to be me but I bring out my mother, then I hide behind the mirror and try to do like other's. I thought I was just dumb or stupid, that's what other people say, as I constantly blame myself for being this way. But when I have exhausted these problem, I'm going to find out how to solve them. Until I found out I left the most precious joy behind, that God left me that I had to find. What God left me is something I can share with the world, something I never knew I had when I was a little girl. From the moment from now to then, I still have it from deep within. All your testimonies and love of life, hold on to them really tight. Because their are teens all over world that was just like me, God pour out blessings for you and me
