I guess there wasn’t anything either of us could say as we settled into our first class seats on the plane. I was leaving behind any and everything that was familiar to me. I was leaving my makeshift family. I’d never really traveled anywhere that I couldn’t drive to from Maryland. That’s right no trip for Disney land for me. When we were kids we couldn’t afford it and as we got older, we got busy so travel wasn’t in the schedule. Pete handed me a pair of head phones and I put them on. He pushed a few buttons on his ipod and a song I recognized started to play. It started out and I immediately started singing along in a quiet voice, closing my eyes and forgetting my surrounding.

“One shot to your heart without breaking your skin
No one has the power to hurt you like your kin.
Kept it inside didn’t tell no one else.
Didn’t even wanna admit it to yourself
And now your chest burns
And you back aches
From 15 years of holding the pain
And now you only have yourself to blame
If you continue to live this way.

Get it together
You wanna to heal your body
Get it together
You have to heal your heart
What so ever you sow you will reap
Get it together

You can fly

Dark future ahead of me
That’s what they said
I’d be starving it I ate all the lies they fed
Cause I’ve been redeemed
From your anguish and pain
A miracle child I’m floating on a cloud
Cause the words that come from your mouth
You’re the first to hear
Speak words of beauty and you will be there
No matter what anybody says
What matters most is what you think of yourself


The choice is yours
No matter what it is
To chose life
Is to chose to forgive
You don’t have to try and hurt him
Or break his pride
Just shake that weight off
And you’ll be ready to fly

One shot to your heart
Without breaking your skin
No one has the power to hurt you like your friends
Thought it would never change
But as time moved on
That ugly duckling grew up to be a swan
And you chest burns
And your back aches
Because now the years are showing up on your face
But you’ll never be happy and you’ll never be whole
Until you see the beauty in growing old”

I heard clapping and opened my eyes. The people sitting in front of us had turned in their seats and were staring at me. I looked over a Pete, he was looking at me in awe. The person on the end seat on the other side of me also was staring at me. I hadn’t realized that people could hear me. I know I couldn’t hear my voice. Then I remembered that I had in the ear phones. I took them off. That song applied so well to me it’s not funny. Each line applied to my life one way or another.

“Sorry I didn’t mean to disturb you all, I guess I didn’t realize how loud I was.” I looked down at my hands hoping they would stop staring at me.

“Please sing another one,” The woman in front of us said. “We have a very long flight and live music would be really cool.”

“I would rather not, I’m a little tired,” I yawned and laid my head on Pete’s shoulder.

“So he just signed you to his label?” The man on the other side of me asked.

“No, we are just friends. I said I’d never been out of Baltimore and he said he would show me around LA.” I lied easily.

“I’m tired, do you think you all could leave us to our nap?” Pete asked finally saying something.

“Yes sorry to have disturbed you.” I said one more time.
