Favorite Quote:
"In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed"
~ William Ernest Henley, "Invictus"

A fiendish wind growls at my bedside pane;
These restless dreams rattle my chains.
The silence mocks my disquieted head,
And what I hear leaves me misled.
I can escape the world, but not myself.
Who's ever heard of living hell?
Yet day by day, I die for constant fear
Of where I am, and why I'm here.
Have mercy on me, God--salvage what's left!
This slavish life's left me bereft.
