    As I lay in bed confused.
    The numbness I had is leaving me,
    The walls I built around me are breaking,

    Come and take a look behind the curtain..
    Peer under the surface to see things that are dark for certain

    You do what you're suppose to do,
    with no frown or fuss.
    Not because you want to,
    but because you must.
    Day after day
    It's like a routine.

    You only do the right ..........

    Look how she's changed,
    Look how she's grown,
    The personality changes

    To grow up quicker?

    The ..........

    I love the pain it brings me,
    I don't know why
    The pain is my pleasure,
    as I sit there and cry.

    Cry myself to sleep,
    I wake up to an annoying beep.
    The beep of my alarm.
    Waking me from my ..........

    You are a strong individual, bright and talented.
    You just fell off and you need help getting up.

    Lost in the confusion of my mind
    Looking for a way out
    Held captive by my own fears and insecurities
    Caught up in my emotions of love & lust, joy & pain

    A piece of colored paper, with no dialogue or animation, can strike a drawer's or writer's utter fascination.

    We learn from our mistakes,
    From the wrong turns we take
    From the fake friends we make
    And from the times we almost break.

    Our mistakes help us grow
    But at the time, we didn't know

    Filled with sorrow she stands,
    Icy tears fall from pain-filled eyes and drops in the sand,
    She puts on that painted smile,
