+ Second Chance +Second Chance
I chose this song because it reminds me of my parents' divorce and me moving forward with my life. This was a good thing because my dad could no longer abuse my mom and me. The significance this song has in my life is that it reminds me of a future that I can look forward to, and I won't have to see anyone get hurt anymore. The lyrics that fit my life are "Tell my mother, tell my father I've done the best I can to make them realize this is my life; I hope they understand," and "Sometimes goodbye is a second chance." The first lyric makes me feel like I can make my own future. The second lyric makes me feel like leaving open more doors in my life.

I chose this song because it made me feel that the world needs to accept others for who they are. The significance this song has in my life is that it reminds me of God's purpose for me and that it's okay to be different. This song describes an obstacle I have overcome in my life. The lyrics that fit my life are "You smile hiding behind that God-given face" and "The moment we decided to let love in." The first lyric makes me feel like God has a plan for me, and I don't need to hide behind something I am not. The second lyric makes me feel that if the world can accept other nationalities, then they should be able to accept homosexuals.

I chose this song because it reminds me of the day I got kicked out of Florida. The reason I had to leave Florida was because my father was abusive and could not support me and my mom and my little sister. The significance this song has in my life is that it reminds me of my past and birthplace. Also, this song reminds me of my very best friends in Florida. The lyrics that fit my life are "I'm coming home; I've been gone for far too long. Do you remember me at all?" and "You're not alone; I know I'm far from home." The first lyric makes me feel like I can always find a way back home by my memories. The second lyric makes me feel I can be close to my friends even though I am far away.
Teenage TaoismGiving birth is the closest I’d ever felt to dying.
Before that, my near death experiences had consisted only of my silent announcement of pregnancy—silent, being that my social media accounts were all deleted almost simultaneously and I never returned to school in the fall, saying without really saying that I had caught the malicious disease of “teenage pregnancy”. I’m sure the whisper spread in the hallways like the Bubonic Plague. That September, sitting at home on what would have been the first day of my senior year, I imagined friends I’d never talk to again saying “she was only seventeen, and so full of life!” at my absence in the cafeteria tables, as if they were attending my funeral instead of talking about me behind my back.
"Full of life," I had snorted then, folding a never ending stream of what had once been my own baby clothes. "Literally."
I walked around like a zombie for the months of my pregnancy, deciding t
