Favorite Quote:
People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out but when the darkness sets in their true beauty is revealed only if there is light from within.
By Elisabeth Kuebler-Ross


Now does he feel his position
Like a crown hanging off his head
Perhaps he shouldn't focus on power
But rule more wisely instead
For stealing what he didn’t deserve
And being led astray
He reaped much in dishonor
But Fate may snatch it away

Now does he feel his title
Hang like a giant’s robe
Maybe he shall act less ambitious
Or get what he is owed
For some are starting to plot
Just as he had once before
Either live up to the throne he robbed
Or lie bloody without it on the floor

The author's comments:
Inspired by Shakespeare's Macbeth quote "Now does he feel his title hang loose about him, like a giant's robe."
