Guilt is a painful, dreadful being. Guilt is the most powerful being of all, He punctures million needles through your heart,

Life is funny at times we have our ups and we have our down There is so much to be said and done yet nothing comes out We grow to adore and love someone, then we find out that it’s not reciprocated

What I learned from my cat:
The music seems to drown out her screaming.

The world is crazy, but never slowing down I see so many different people whenever I look around Black, white, yellow, and red I see all these people inside my head But why do we hate the way people look
I lay here bleeding From a bullet to the gutt You would think my mind would be on my life What I have amounted to The people I'm leaving behind The way his voice sounded at night
