Extracts from this document...


Written by: Brandon Olivier Laptop class 2004 English Form 3 Number 8 Gather ye rosebuds while ye may. Old time is still a-fly. And this same flower that smiles today. Tomorrow will be dry. There I was looking into the mirror at the age of eight. I could not believe that at this young age my life is ruled be my appearance or more by my body.
