I can't ignore different parts of life, sometimes the word's empty and cold and I'm just old enough to know that there's no way to rebuild the past that resides in my memories. And it's enough to bring me to my knees, this burning agony, but there's always something inside of me that pulls me to my feet and as long as I live and breathe then I'm going to strive to be more than reality ever dared to dream I could be. Failure is not an option, the only choice is to endure and dream of changing, creating what they said could never be done, with every step and breath I take, I'm going to make the life that should have been impossible one that I can call my own.
