Favorite Quote:
Nothing is so insufferable to man as to be completely at rest, without passions, without business, without diversion, without study. He then feels his nothingness, his forlornness, his insufficiency, his dependence, his weakness, his emptiness. There will immediately rise from the depth of his heart weariness, gloom, sadness, fretfulness, vexation, despair.
Blaise Pascal

“Hey, what’s up?” they always say
But their words just fade away
Prior events have taught you
They aren’t the people you once knew

Who are they, but two-faced fools?
They turn their backs and remain so cruel
You look for acceptance, you look for reason
But all they give you is their treason

Give them no ammo from your actions
Let them remain in their factions
Take from them all they knew
Teach them again what is true about you

Do not let them speak on things they know not
To spread their rumors, gossip, and rot
Stand up tall don’t lay down low
Let problems slide, let grudges go

You are as resilient as a stone
Remember that you are not alone
Others will see the lighter side
They’ll become your friends in the hardest times

Defend yourself through calm collection
Help others without the slightest selection
Weed out opinions before they grow
Before they make you someone you do not know
