I hold these truths to be self evident:
17love

That each night can be my last
 1
That their will come a time I would not be able to hear my parent’s voice-----
 2
six feet underground
 3
That people are the best books I will ever read
 4
but are the easiest to be torn
 5
That the sun will always hurt
 6
That life is having a hard time lifting my spoon for it is full of my waste
 7
That no one is a failure because they never reach their dreams
 8
That the purpose of existing is all about God
 9
That I want to live like a fish hook so I can carry people out from heavy waters
 10
That problems are seeds that sprout into answers when you give them enough sunlight
 11
That no matter what happens weather you read me or not I will always write
 12
That when I fall in love I know I will say, “what, this is it?”
 13
That friends are soft drinks filled in my cup
 14
though they are not perfectly healthy for me--- I will drink  
 15
and I will feel them inside of me like bubbles in a dessert
 16
That my family is the trees and the plants for they make it easier for me to breath
