“Love will conquer all” Life without love is like life without oxygen. Eventually we would be lifeless. I once was a lifeless girl. I felt as if I did not have anything or anyone to live for. My parents could not care about me, because they were too busy fighting their own demons. When I was 12 I ran away from the horror of my mother.
