    When Things Change

    When I was real young, I was fearless and curious. I still have the curiosity to some extent but fearless no longer exist. When we moved back to my mom's hometown, there was just no one to really connect with by the time I entered school I was afraid of it. I went through random...

    The Story Of My Life.
