“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

When I look in the mirror
I feel so ashamed.
I try to go back there
But it’s always the same,
They see right through me.

Those hollow words
On that hollow shelf,
They tell me the story
Of everyone else.
The path that I'm on
Never even moves
And you're getting ahead of me
Oh, what can I do?

It’s not even you
Just who you are
And I can't go back
To who I was before.
Nobody sees
What they don’t believe
And nobody believes in me.
