Favorite Quote:
My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style. - Maya Angelou

the people around us were so cold

no matter which way we turned

I did not care what she wore

I did not care how she talked

I did not care for how she smelled

because she was my best friend 

she may have been different 

but she was my best friend 

I care not what the world thinks of her

because she was my best friend

I was by side 

every day

twenty four seven

no one seemed to care

her hair so out

her appearance 

everyone screamed gross

oh but I did not

I screamed oh best friend you are beautiful

oh best friend 

be proud for this is your pride

oh best friend please be you

cause there is no one else out there like you

oh I know 

their eyes are like daggers

the words they say sting like a bee

but who cares best friend 

you are perfect to me 

oh please you are beautiful to me
