Favorite Quote:
"The beauty of the trees masked the forest"
-Chinese proverb

A shadow in the distance
A moment from the past
Evokes him from a slumber
A dream that did not last

Brought back to the present
To the trials of today
He cannot bear to watch as
Dreams gently fade away

Soon comes the realization
What’s seen is not what’s real
The lock and key on tomorrow
Are stronger than they feel

His eyes are not deceptive
His mind is not to blame
The world around him shatters
And then bursts into flames

All that’s left to fight with
Against a world of lies
Is the strength that is inside him
The force behind his eyes
