‘‘Prize I’ve earned since my birth, my vow to leave a lasting voice after I was ‘’I look into the future and see me cease, I feel no fear, my face won’t even cease
‘’My steps on this earth, a testament to life leaving this place filled with strife ‘’Don’t cry for me, shed tears for yourself for each date you acquire gives you a little less.
‘’Now I know why I live the way I do Any why my mistakes, no second look ‘’If I live my life according to their pace what’s my price in life’s meaningless race? ‘
‘Too much odds stacked against this fierce soul, so each hour, all I do is attain my goals ‘’Spent a lot of days searching for purpose, Then I put my thoughts into poetry and prose
‘’This is why I was put in this world, be a voice, Put emotions in words ‘’For every tear I shed and times my eye smiled, someone will have known every option I tried. ‘
‘This cowardly heart felt fear not death Prize I’ve earned since my birth ‘’My vow to leave a lasting voice after I was Find a loyal number to keep fighting my cause ‘’Here lies she who lived short but well No regrets for her, but all her story tell”.
