"The truth holds no lies. Lies are what ties you down and tapes your mouth shut. We can run away from all the things we fear. We can hide our troubles with beauty, but a lie will always catch you. The truth is the only thing that will set you free. I didn't believe that until I wrote it. In this life, we will all face many questions, and sometimes we won't find the answers. How do you know the difference between what's real and what's fake? How do you breathe when you are underwater? What's the hardest part about goodbye? Every story, every hope, and every word have a purpose. Pen against the pad was like me against the world. Told from not only my eyes, but my heart, and now the words are written for all to see. You can not only read my truth but also find answers to your own questions."
