    I felt the need to say something about my

    You always wanted smooth sailing

    and you never wanted to admit or face the fact that I have always been a tsunami. Wild ponies are born to run.. Maybe some women aren't meant to be tamed.. Maybe they just need to run wild and free until they find someone just as wild to run with them <3
