best song ever

The lakes and pines they bleed of beauty and grace
And the rivers they run wild like an endless race
The forests soar so high then fall to the sea
As church bells ring and sing in harmony

I heard them say they're shuttin' Detroit down
But I won't leave cuz' this is my hometown

And it's times like these we can't replace
It's times like these we must embrace
And even though it's bittersweet and brings us to our knees
It makes us who we are, in times like these

The concrete and steel stand strong against the wind
With the memories of what was and what has been
The sounds of sweet soul music and blue-collar blues
There were 17 colors for a Chevy all red white and blue

I heard them say that you can't save that town
But I won't leave, I will stand my ground

And it's times like these we can't replace
It's times like these we must embrace
And even though it's bittersweet and brings us to our knees
It makes us who we are, in times like these

(Solo)

The ice and snow give way to a new spring bloom
In the wake that hope and faith they will be home soon
A new day dawns as the good Lord shines from above
Cuz in the rubble and rust there remains a whole lotta love

And I was here watchin' it all go down
And I'll still be, when it comes back around

And it's times like these we can't replace
It's times like these we must embrace
And even though it's bittersweet and brings us to our knees
It makes us who we are, in times like these
It makes us who we are in times like these

quotes







All my life I had been looking for something, and everywhere I turned someone tried to tell me what it was. I accepted their answers too, though they were often in contradiction and even self-contradictory. I was naïve. I was looking for myself and asking everyone except myself questions which I, and only I, could answer. It took me a long time and much painful boomeranging of my expectations to achieve a realization everyone else appears to have been born with: that I am nobody but myself. ~Ralph Ellison, "Battle Royal"



lost

You ever get the urge to just want to pick up the phone and call someone you know you can't? I miss the times we had just talking, being silly, but most of all just being there for eachother when times got tough.

I don't miss the way I was treated though. I don't miss the yelling, the name calling, the talks behind my back.... the threats... i don't miss any of that..


I'm not perfect and I know that... I realize that I don't need to change for anyone. I am who I am...

sometimes i just miss certain people more than anything and there's nothing I can really do...

Moving

Deciding to move was one of the hardest decisions I've ever made, but I think it was the smartest one. Where I'm living in NC is about 12 hours away from West Bloomfield, MI. The weather is gorgeous and all the people are too friendly for words. They are also very nosey, but it's something I'm getting used to. The social life is still non existent, but it's getting there. I've only been here for 3 months, but I'm learning to like it. I've had more luck with being in schools since I've graduated. I'm at my 4th school and 5th grade.. only one more to go and I'll have experienced all the elementary grades. I have a pretty good chance of having my own classroom next year, and for that I'm quite excited.

People think I moved because of all the drama going on at home.. honestly... really? just pack up and move 12 hours away to escape it? You can never escape it, it follows you everywhere if it's not solved. I moved because I needed a change, I needed something good to happen in my life, I needed to find work... I needed this. This was for me, not for anyone else. I am grateful for those friends who have kept in touch with me throughout this hard move.

hmmm
