    I Can't Believe This

    I even tried to resist because I thought if I didn't go after what I wanted this time that it would matter but it doesn't mean ****. My path was chosen long ago and I can't find any other roads to take anymore.

    Forgotten

    There may just be a few who remember that day. The one with the orange juice spilled on the front of the most expensive dress she has ever owned, the day that she didn’t eat and passed out, having to stop by the hospital prior to their first vacation, and the unwanted flowers...
