Favorite Quote:
Can't chose just one, two I love currently are, "People who deny the existence of dragons are often eaten by dragons. From within. " — Ursula K. LeGuin and ""This is the forest primeval. The murmuring pines and the hemlocks, Bearded with moss, and in garments green, indistinct in the twilight, Stand like Druids of eld, with voices sad and phrophetic..." Evangeline by Henry W. Longfellow


I will follow my dreams...

Even if every trail,
Leads only,
To a gingerbread house...

Even if every frog,
Is just,
A frog...

Even if crowns sit,
On the heads,
Of the unjust...

Even if my magic beans,
Grow only,
More beans...

Even if the forest,
Is filled,
With dark things...

Even if my prince,
Never
Comes...

Even if there is no,
Happy
Ending...

Becasue fantasy,
Is a bridge,
To a reality...

And dreams only come true,
When you're not afraid,
To let them.

The author's comments:
Even though I wrote it recently this piece sounds a little childish to me. But I love it anyways. I have always loved fairy tales but as you grow up you learn that no matter what you do, you can't make you life perfect. This poem reminds me that happy is an attitude, not a place.
