“A small body of determined spirits fired by an unquenchable faith in their mission can alter the course of history.” ~Mahatma Gandhi


get it off me. take all of it off.

my pasty skin.

my greasy hair.

my bony legs.

tear them off.

maybe then they could see what's wrong with me.

where the pain hides inside me.

where the nightmares prepare to haunt me.

where the pieces of my shattered heart fell to.

maybe then they could fix me.
