True. Everyone is given choices. It is how you use the choices to the best of your ability.

I see people laughing and joking all around,
but on my face there is no smile instead there is a frown.

I never laugh anymore instead I cry,
and I never stop to ask myself, "why?"

I heard we live and die by the choices we make,
and there's only so much a person can take.

so just remember to life goes on,
and it hurt's when someone leaves and is gone.

so always remember keep your head up,
because another door is opened everytime one is shut.

I can't bring you back, I wish I could. The moment you took your last breath I went with you. I look in the mirror, I no longer recognize who I see. I am not longer me without you. My son, you are every part of me. I don't know how to go on without the other part of me. Seventeen years and 14 days wasn't enough for you and me. You had the whole world ahead of you. I never will get over God taking you from me! They tell me there is a reason. I'm selfish; I want you home with me. You never got live to enjoy life and everything there was to be. Austin, you are my light at the end of the darkness. You're memories are all I have left inside of me. I'll see you again. I'll walk with you in heaven, hand in hand again. My son, my life, my love and the best part of me.

I am in a very bad situation with my mom where we constantly argue. After the arguments she usually asks if I'm upset but when I say yes her response is that she doesn't care about my feelings. I just don't know what to do because I feel like my mom hates me.
