Favorite Quote:
The greatest challenge to any thinker is stating the problem in a way that will allow a solution.

A short pause in the steady beat,
My true soul to greet.
Reflection upon my long journey,
upon my teachings and upon my learnings.
My own jury if you will,
in this time standing still.
Condemned to life or set free to death,
now to scale my internal wealth.
Loved others with unending compassion,
self-recognition will not be rationed.
Loved myself with corrective criticism,
true happiness achieved through ultimate optimism.
Mistakes forgiven, lessons learned,
few lives around that I have turned.
The gavel has knocked,
condemned I am not.
Set free at last,
by reflection of past.
It's testimony proves strong,
waited for this far too long.
I am dead.
