    What Is The Truth?

    Still Got Some Way to Go....

    But I think I'm getting there :)   I'm still young. And everyday I'm learning more about myself. That's the truth part. I don't know myself completely, but I've noticed a change in myself in the past year. I guess it's just 'growing up', but it feels good to...
