Favorite Quote:
Life is not easy, it is what you do with it that makes you, you

A sparrow came
It stood at my doorstep
It pleaded entrance
Which I, so foolishly, allowed
It crowed for eternity
So I threw it out
Without any gallantry
Yet to this day its crows haunt me
Since that day
I’ve known sorrow
Never shall it be gone
Not so long as that sparrow’s crow
Echoes within me

The author's comments:
I love Edgar Allen Poe and felt inspired by the Raven, it was a particularly morbid day, and I live with birds all around my house, so this was how I felt.
