I’m ahead of the curve. I’ve seen and experienced more than most have or will, and count a will of steel my greatest quality. I won’t give in to the outside if it means giving up a part of myself. I’m a person you want as a friend, because I give to the ones I name my brothers and sisters support, affection, and protection rarely found in the modern world. Empathy is the gift I have taken from life, and I will use it to give to others what I did not have.
