    Looking into the mirror I see to my surpirse a completely diffrent person staring deep into my eyes. A care free little girl I saw at four or five has now become a young woman fighting to survive. In a world filled with maddness that surrounds me every day I'm frightened to think I could be killed for what I say. Remembering a time so long ago picnics, swing sets, barbies, and water parks, a time when I didn't worry about others remarks. It's scary that time flys by so fast and what I used to call my present has now become my past and when I look into the mirror what I see looking back at me is the face of an aspiring young woman were a little girl used to be.






    Life ain't no grad picnic, u gotta live and not be lived by the sins of this cold lonely world. Only u can help yourself!!!

    Very Nice flow.

    My mother told me my vision would change. It was pointed it out when I was 15. I was talking to her about all the grown up stuff I wanted to do. Like buying a car, working hard and growing up. She didn’t just mean being responsible, for my actions, paying bills and stuff. She told me there are some evil people working and creating evil things in this world.

    As you look in the mirror, know to keep your goal. If you loose love, you will find another. If you loose your apartment you can get another. If you loose your job you can get another. Sharpen your focus and live happy. When you look back, have no regrets and despair.
