    "Some people look at me and say, "You'll never make it". They don't know the real me; they can't take it. I have a separate world in my mind, you may not know it, but I'm one of a kind. I believe in God and myself. I'm sorry but I don't need your help. It may come as a shock when I say I plan to live my life a certain way. Life may try to beat me, but I'll stand tall through any troubles, I will not fall.

    You might think that I'm weird, clueless or bad. Hey, I don't care what you say, I ain't mad. I depend on God and myself to achieve my goal. I have a strong body, mind and soul. Please don't tell me what to do 'cause this doesn't concern you. When you look at me, you're looking at a girl with a plan. I know I will make, I know I can!"

    " When you think that it's the end, it might be just the beginning. Everything happens for a reason. It may be to make you realize certain things, test you. It could be anything because God has a reason for everything. If you live your life the way you should, eventually, after all of the trials no matter what they may be, it will all be ok. Keep your head held high, it shows your strength. Respect everything in the manner it deserves. Life throws crazy things in your direction, but know this: tomorrow is another day and life goes on."

    Don't test your life, for it is the one you chose and make it count forever
