“Do not be afraid to color outside the lines. Take risks and do not be afraid to fail. Know that when the world knocks you down, the best revenge is to get up and continue forging ahead.Do not be afraid to be different or to stand up for what's right. Never quiet your voice to make someone else feel comfortable. No one remembers the person that fits in. It's the one who stands out that people will not be able to forget.”

“I will teach my daughter to color outside the lines, to make mistakes, to take risks, and not be afraid to fail. I will teach her that even when the world tries to knock her down the best revenge is getting up and forging ahead. I will teach her to be brave enough to be different, to stand up for what's right. To never quiet her voice to make someone else feel comfortable. Because no one remembers the person that fits in. It's the one who stands out that people won't be able to forget.”

“I still wake longing for your touch
Skin open wound raw
because I was told
that's the only way to heal.
I couldn't tame you
you weren't meant for domestication
meant to roam free
but I still remember
the first time you said "I love you"
a whisper barely audible
afraid of choking on your words
or mine
you preferred me voiceless
blank stare submissive
swallowing back years of lost time
waiting for you to change.”
