Favorite Quote:
The good news is that the moment you decide that what you know is more important than what you have been taught to believe, you will have shifted gears in your quest for abundance. Success comes from within, not from without.”
― Ralph Waldo Emerson

I stand alone in a field of grey
A row of archers take their aim
Fitting arrows they can see it in my eyes
Resolve fading as the despair begins to rise
Yet it would seem a waste to give in now
Forgetting the reason I once was proud
But the pain that was suffered is rippling
Tearing apart my own soul from me
As a tear slips loose the arrows fly
In their shade I ask myself why
If they bind me to my bluffs
To suffer is it not enough?
