A rose busting the concrete, I'm McKinley. My eyes change shades of blue depending on how I feel. I write. Create. Think. I've got soul, but I'm not a soldier. I inspire others and shoot for everything with confidence, because regrets and unhappiness aren't worth it. I'm in love, crazily so. I'm insightful and sarcastic but hey what's a day without a touch of laughter? I don't stress. I don't slack. I want my heart, as irregular as it may be, to be in whatever I do and I want that to be recognized. I don't say goodbye, because that is an ending. And I like beginnings. French. Animals. Books. Tea. Conversation. You are beautiful, do not allow yourself to believe otherwise. Call it what you want, but I'm an optimist. I will hold on and fight and make myself a house of the rising sun.
