Favorite Quote:
Imagination rules the world.
Napoleon Bonaparte


The pending and past remain, embrace he who can mend
Blemishes on white snow remain, welcome he who can mend

A cripple continues his search, so long as the doctor inspires
A burning Scar marks his skin, praise he who can mend

A Companion seeks forgiveness, swallowed by unfortunate lies
A stubbornness creates a barrier, kiss he who can mend

A Rebel feels for a home, after a betrayal in his curious youth
A blindness hides the proper path, appreciate he who can mend

A man is weak to addiction, the pending and the past remain
Susceptible to stumbling, he must look to he who can mend

Glare into forever, dwell no longer on what has been done
Forgiveness marks his sleeve, embrace he who can mend
