    Is It Worth It?

    Take A Sad Song and Make It Better

    Well, I'm not going to lie... A lot of the choices I have made in my life have not exactly been the best; they've cost me things like my dignity, my pride, my sense of self worth & unfortunately, have altered the very way I see myself when I look into the mirror every morning...
