Because of My Parents MistakesBecause of my parents' mistakes,I will never be like them.I will never "love," if even it exists.I will never smoke, or drink.I will never hate my families.I will never have children.I will never set myself up for failure, or settle for something less than what I do love.I refuse to make their mistakes.I refuse to roll over and do what I'm told.I refuse to let my life be anything "ordinary."I refuse to stay here stuck with all the same people.I refuse to live in a small space that will restrict my thoughts.I refuse to feel sad while I am still breathing, or be angry at what is probably my fault.Because of my parents' mistakes,I will never be like them,I refuse to make their mistakes.I will always think this way becauseI accept that their mistakes have changed mine.-Taylor Borz
Pray because you can.Pray for Japan.Even if you don't believe.Even if you don't think it can help.Pray for the others.Even if you know it won't bring those people back.Even if you think it won't change anything.Pray for them all.Even if you personally are not affected.Even if you want to do more than just hope.Pray.Even if you don't believe.Even if you don't think it will help.Pray.Because some of us want to help, but can't.Because some of us can help, but won't.Pray.Because that's all some of us are willing to do.Because it's all most of us can do.Pray for them all.Because they could have been us.Because we're all human with families, and hopes, and dreams.Pray, because you can.
Planning an AdventureA girl stands in a flickering room,The sun was just going down.And so she stands,In a small sized room,Wondering about adventure.Before her, flames dance,Singing to her,Of something called adventure. It twist and it turns and smoke trickles up,Whispering about excitement,Whispering about heroes and foes,Whispering about adventure.The candle grows and casts more shadows,Showing her an adventure,Of pirates and thieves and places unseen,Showing her an adventure.And though the candle sings of hardships,In these places left unseen,She still thinks that those are where she would rather be,to test her own will,to make her as strong,as these people in there she sees.And so she thinks to herself,In the back of her mind,One day, very soon,I will go on an adventure.-Taylor Borz
