it's all you now

Tell me about your life or don't.
It will be okay if you don't.
I've proven that to myself now.

Here's the deal if you choose to take it.
You can't be cute.
Your words should not make me smile.
I cannot laugh or giggle.

Never mind.
It's your choice now.

I am a small town girl in a big, fast paced world. I never thought I would like the simple things life hs to offer. I never thought I'd look behind me...look back at my past....and be grateful for every hardship that fell in my path. I smile more now than I did when I was younger. I have peace within my heart and within my soul. They say I have a kindness in my eyes, a warmth to my smile, and a voice that can calm an angry sea. People tell me I am pretty but when I look at myself in the mirror, I just cannot see what they see. Some days I feel as if I can conquer anything. Then there are some days I crumble slowly. I am a true friend to those who take the time to want to know me. I've been betrayed, hurt, and often taken for granted by friends. I choose my words carefully nowadays. I make sure those around me feel like they belong. In my mind, I feel, that if I can look directly into your eyes and smile and say hello in passing, then I have acknowledge you when those around have not. I want to make my mark in this world so that when I pass away people can say I was good. Plain. Simple.
