Never Falter

Today’s tattoo comes with a very touching story:
This was my first tattoo. It reads "I will never falter", lyrics from a song by A Day To Remember. I got this tattoo because it's my reminder to hold my ground and stand up for what I think is right. I also got it for my boyfriend, Ryan, who passed away from Acute Myeloid Leukemia almost three years ago at the age of 19. Even after all he had to go through, he stayed strong until the very end; and I still admire him for that. I will always love him, and this tattoo gives me the strength to get through the hard times. This is, and always will be, my favorite tattoo :)

So now you'll know
exactly what it feels like
to be an obstacle in my way
You won't remain

save your breath don't even speak
if you'll speak of change
cause you wont
cut to the chase, spare me the lecture
on what it takes to make a man
cause you're weak, and I'm strong

I will never falter
I'll stand my ground
You're a fake, a worthless coward
your life won't mean anything
