    Pull the string and I'll unwind. My life was great until I lost focus of what mattered to me. Now I am trying to regain my footing but I've changed since then and my feet no longer fit. I use to be a human but now I've become something else that I can't understand. I am a shadow...

    Been through a lot. Lost a lot along the way.

    Confidence, peace of mind, friendships, too. However, God is good, and I'm looking at the negative through positive lenses, because he's about to replace all that I've lost with better.
