I hear you. Loud and clear

Is all you need to be told

You feel like screaming because you aren't being heard

You feel like sleeping because there's nothing better then silence

Even in your dreams you aren't heard

In your dreams you can't escape

They are filled with nightmares and you are running down a hallway

Down this hallway you cannot leave

For everywhere you turn everyone is breathing

They are breathing down your back

You say you don't feel good enough

You are met with words that make you feel worse

All you need to hear is you are good

You are good enough

But they aren't said

You feel like running

Running

Running

Down a path you shouldn't

But what should you do

You are surrounded

Surrounded

Surrounded

You scream hear me

Hear me

Hear me

But you aren't heard

Not being heard bring so much pain

Pain flows

Flows

Flows

Throughout life you need one thing

To be told

That you are good enough

To be told without screaming

Hear me

Hear me

Hear me

Scarred

One of the darkest moments in my family's life.

Huffington Post

I knew this day was coming when my mother’s decided to get spinal surgery. February 20, was the date her surgery was set. It was a normal day in school when I received the message of a lifetime. My oldest sibling telling me our mother’s surgery went wrong. Imagining what could possibly go wrong made my eyes water. Felt like I was the only person on my bus. Everything was silence and my mind was racing. There was never a positive thought in my head. Taking the last step off the bus and the first step onto the porch, everything was real.

Michigan Rain Vs. California Rain

SO, I've just recently had the fortunate experience to be reminded just how Michigan rains. Now, before you roll your eyes at me, I HAVE EXPERIENCED RAIN (in regards of the the popular joke that Californians haven't). However, I have to agree; after experiencing one of Michigan's thunderstorms (with my college's sirens blaring in the background), it comes to mind just how different "rain" is between the two states:

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.
