Who hasn’t had conflicts? If you genuinely haven’t ever, I would definitely like to meet you!

Forgive and Forget?

Thank You

I am not a poetess and I don’t pretend to be. Just another girl telling what she feels. That someone sitting on her couch, trying hard not to slouch. Thinking how far she’s come, and how life isn’t always about fun. We say thank you when everything goes good. And thank we definitely should. Thanks…
