ATBP

March 22nd, 2018by ultraviolet

Today. I hurt most. Finch, it is your birthday…. my heart aches. Your mind has become my great manifesto…. you have changed me in every way…. today most of all I need to say that you have taught me to not be scared of being different. I am holding my copy of ATBP and I have a knot in my throat and my eyes are trying their hardest to keep in their tears. I hurt. But I know I’m not alone because of you Finch. I can not forget the things that hurt me but you help me think beyond that. You view the universe with such beauty. You withhold the greatness you portray. You’re intelligent and brave. You have taught me SO MUCH and saved my life by doing so. I have to thank Jennifer Niven she knew your heart, she knew you… and I am so thankful someone shared you with me. Finch, today I felt gloomy I felt sad and I had the desire to pull my copy out and touch the pages that impacted me most.
