Favorite Quote:
"If I can do any good in this world it's with my pen." Walt Witman. It's not my quote, but it is my favorite.


She was once so innocent and sweet,
she could have had the world at her feet.
She was once so strong and so brave,
she once fought anything that came her way.
She was once a spirit immune to pain,
now she's crippled with a sadness insane.
She once gave love to all those alone,
and now she needs that love but all hearts have turned to stone.
She was once so bright, breezy, and free,
but now she is turned away and no one wants to see.
She was once so innocent and sweet.
Oh yes, she could have had the world at her feet.


The author's comments:
What makes a person change so unexpectedly? Is it pushed on them or they simply weak? And is it temporary? I thought this through writing this poem, it's a thought that has haunted me since childhood.
