words to live by:

Dance like no one's watching,

Sing like no one's listening,

Write like no one's reading,

Live like you were dying.

Sarah

She's the girl with the dark brown hair

Who people call smart

But inside is oh so uncertain

She doesn't trust many

And no one knows everything about her.

You make fun at her because

She refuses to conform

No matter how hard she tries.

She's dying inside from the pain

Of being unloved.

Yet she is so happy,

She loves everyone

No matter who they are

Or what they've done to her.

She wants to be accepted

And still be herself

But that's harder than it looks

She know that there's other

Underdogs in the world

And she wants to make a difference

By loving the unloved

And caring for the neglected

She is Sarah

And you know her

She sits beside you in history.

She's 'what's her name'

She's 'the new girl'

Sarah might be

You.

fave quote(s):

So don't worry about tomorrow, for
tomorrow will bring it's own worries. Today's troubles is enough
trouble for today. --Matthew 6:34 Bible

Yesterday is History. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today...is a gift. --Elenor Roosevelt

Anything is Possible. --Proverb

the first thing we did in kindergarden
was get shown a picture of an apple
two oranges , then pick out which ones
didn't belong. the
first thing we were
taught was that being different is wrong

bring out the total DORK in yourself,
cus
hell, life's too short to be cool.

never bend your head.
always hold it high.
look the world
straight in the face
