Favorite Quote:
The word, the word above all, is truely magical, not only by it's meaning, but by it's artful manipulation.

Glass shatters
As frail as you are, you are still too strong to go

Leave and never come back
Hear laughter, yet cannot laugh
See smiles, yet cannot smile

You want to leave, a door opens
Yet someone's in-front, blocking your way
You have to pay
For pain and sorrow are free

Happiness, laughter
That's what costs
You spend half of your time thinking about
People, Places and things

You skip a beat
A happy time
A warm hug

It's over
Gone away, never to return

The author's comments:
A lot of people these days make an image of themselves and don't stop until they reach their goal. That was my inspiration. Encouraging people to take five minutes out of their day to stop worrying how their hair looks and notice the smaller things in life that have been taken for-granted and forgotten.
