Passion Is Not Enough

I was afraid when I was young. I lived on the outside. I talked and no one listened I don’t know why life turned out this way. I was meant to be someone. What happened to me? Where did I go wrong? Why am I holding back? Why was I so afraid to live? When […]

Passion Is Not Enough
