Favorite Quote:
All men must die, but for every man his death is an accident and, even if he knows it and consents to it, an unjustifiable violation. - J. R. R. Tolkien

I am so ready to feel for you
But I lack the ability to trust.
It seems I am ready to die for you
My heart is beginning to rust.

How can I believe you are reality
When you have never shown your face?
How can you say you will always be
When I’ve never felt your embrace?

At times, I think you’re created by man
Far from the other way around.
Prove me wrong and show me your hand
And I won’t bury you into the ground.

The author's comments:
Why does man search endlessly for something greater than himself? This question, as well as many others, is something I struggle to answer.
