Favorite quote

"I can be changed by what happens to me, but I refuse to be reduced by it."

I refuse to let the the sound of my heart breaking interfer with my smile.
Some whom are weaker depend on it as there source of accomplishment. 
So I will cry when im alone in a little while.

But for now ill help you up, and make your fear go away
You will smile a broken smile but let me know your getting through
And instead of leaving to suffer in my own pain ill stand right here.. Ill stay.

My life was once true bliss
Now that Im as weak as my feelings
I have realized all of this...

Was because of you.

But I refuse to feel any less because of it
I will walk with my head high, even if that means dropping it when no-one looks.
I will shove this hurt way down deep into a closed pit.
hollowed out in my heart.

**Exceeds maximum line count but i just couldn't loose feelings by dropping a stanza.

    This ode reminds me of the pop song "I will Survive". It seems to carry the same meaningful message as that tune. Thank you for your comment on my work. Peace & Love Matthew Anish
