"To be one's self, is to be truly honest, truly loyal, and truly great."

In the absence of this room,
A constant thudder makes its way;
In the absence of this bed,
A constant reminder of what could’ve been;
In the absence underneath the bed,
A constant thought of remorse and fear;
In the absence of this mind,
All the answers disappear;
But obviously in this ink,
Something is clear…

I guess I wrote this piece inspite of my constant struggle with finding answers, I feel sometimes as if the only thing that is clear to me, is my feelings in this ink, on this paper. In this poem.

Ive noticed as i read your work that you really describe what is going on inside your mind on paper... there are many writers that describe things like this, but i have never read anything quite this deep..its really soul-searching. You describe things so well, its truely amazing.

You are such a deep writer. You are very talented, at age 16 i think you have such a bright future ahead of you, never stop writing...k? haha

We should really talk on here sometime, i would love to get to know more about you, your way of thinking is fascinating.
