    Question...

    "What's the biggest lie you've ever told?" I smile don't I? That't my lie. I laugh don't I? That is my lie. I dance don't I? That's my lie. I play don't I? That is my lie. I said "i'm fine" didn't I? That's my lie. But above all I told you I don't feel, and that was a lie.

    Reed In The Wind

    Sometimes you billow wither the wind may blow. Sometimes you snap in half. I feel lost, sad and alone. I put on a brave face for everyone. In real life, I'm the "go-to woman," the one with all the answers. I don't have all the answers. I don't even have the answers for my...

    Tears of a Clown

    To see me, most people would think my life was great, I'm always dorking out on something, I smile a lot and I laugh a lot.  Inside though there are storms raging.  Only a very select few people know what's really going on behind the smile.  I don't have much and I...
