There's always someone fighting for you. In my case, I'm fighting for that second chance. We all have that one person we want to feel loved by. All we need is that one sign of a flame of hope.

When I was a young child,

I believed that there was no such thing as second chances

deep  down inside of my heart and soul is nothing

but darkness

Before when I grew up,

I heard of a legend about

a little tiny flame surrounded by darkness.

To make the flame bigger and powerful enough

to light up the darkness,

I must find someone very special.

Someone close to my heart and soul.

I finally found that person

the person  to light up the darkness

inside my heart

and soul.


She is the very first person that I

have ever cared about.

I care so much.

Her flames light up my darkness.

She is my Eden.

Blanca opened my eyes to a second chance

, one that everybody deserves.

Deep down inside

of my heart and soul

I recieve messages that feel like hope.

Flames of hope.
