    Me

    Yeppers, I sure do. And it is usually the ones closest to me. I don't mean to do it. A careless word or an unkept promise. Such a fool and I never seem to learn. But at least I know who I am...

    I'm Sure I Do

    Sadly...

    Sadly I think I disappoint way too many people. i let others down who believe in me, and its not like I try to. But it just happens. I wish it wouldn't because for once I want to make someone proud instead of dissapointing them =(
