“Sure, I can talk like you, but I choose not to, It's like an art, you know? Picasso had to prove to the world he could paint the right way, before he goes putting both eyes on the side of a face... See if you paint wrong because that's the best you can do, you just a chump. But you do it because you want to? Then you're an artist...You can take that to the grave and dig it up when you need it.”
― Neal Shusterman, Unwind

Who are you to judge me
Or tell me what I believe
I am my own person
God is who I want him to be.

You say that I am ignorant
Drenched in lies and bigotry
Don’t tell me who am
What I’m not and
Who I should be.

I am my own person.
So get up off your knees.
I am the one who never judges
So why are you judging me?

Why can’t you understand
That my life was not a choice
There are many others
But I choose to raise my voice.

I do not believe I will burn in hell
And I never said that you did.
I am my own person.
And that is why I forgive.

I forgive you on behalf
Of those who share your faith
They believe in love
And all you ever do is hate.

Everytime I see my sister I just wanna cry and I get terribly scared she envelope swears me
