My Quote:

Why were you born this way? I was born this way because I have a soul. Making my destiny to create thru the power of words. Words that can change the way you think and feel. Learning from your past so you can move on to the present and sharing those experiences so others do not feel alone. Were you born this way? Writing for a purpose to help and hopefully change someone's life. A soul that feels love, happiness, death and sorrow. A kind word when someone is feeling alone. Having compassion for those who are less fortunate and actually helping to do something about it. Creating words to help the world become a better place. Listening to those who need to be listened too. Just being there when no one else was. Are we all born this way?
