"As she opens her eyes, it all comes back in one giant wave. The good the bad. More bad than good. She sits up. It's easier to face reality when you're looking out over the world. At least then you can see the punches coming. But not only that, you can also see the sun rising at dawn. The light overcoming the dark. Good winning over evil. That's how its supposed to be. A single candle scares away even the darkest of shadows, and that is why even when her world is falling apart, she still smiles."
-excerpt from a book I'll probably never write.
I spontaneously wrote this last night and sent it to a good friend of mine. I really like it because many of us find ourselves facing numerous trials and tests. Our world is filled with so much despair, and sometimes this makes it hard for us to see the stars shining in the darkness, but we have to keep hope. No matter how dark the world gets we can't give up on the good. Light V.S. dark. That's always been the battle. If you light a single candle, leaving it in the distant edges of your vision it is only a little glint in the night, but if you bring it closer and focus on it, eventually everything you see with be cast in a glow. Life is the same way. If you keep at the good and bright things that happen at the edges of your mind and focus only on the things that bring forth feelings of despair, you will find yourself surrounded in a think black veil, but, if you focus on the bright and good things, eventually everything will be cast in light.
P.S. Sorry. I like metaphors of light and dark...

I am Samantha, and my goal for this blog is to basically share my experiences as a teenager. Basically, I am a teen. I have many hopes and dreams, many fears and insecurities that I let hold me back. There is so much that goes on in my life. Sometimes it is a struggle, and that is what this blog is about.
