Life

16 years have gone by, and the words

"You'll be lucky if you even make it to the end of the year,"

never seem to get old. 

Support? Barely. 

Friends? Few. 

Family? Whenever they feel like being family. 

Hard times? You can say so. 

But, that's life. 

The one thing no one can run away from. 

The one thing that everyone tries to live through. 

The one thing that has its ups and downs.

The one thing that allows you to learn from each mistake. 

The one thing that throws an obstacle your way. 

The one thing that helps build your strength to keep going. 

The one thing that has taught me to live today for tomorrow. 

The one thing that has taught me it's okay to be different. 

The one thing that has taught me to believe in myself.

The one thing that taught me to be independent. 

The one thing that taught me how to fight for what I want...

My life.
