Favorite Quote:
I will one day write a story building bridges across the sea.

Three minutes left
The countdown begins
The clock is ticking
But no one wins

A brand new day,
A brand new life
The fight's begun
And our goal is in site

Why do we choose
To fight, shout and regress?
These ethics we lack
Merely motivate stress

We map out our lives
We write our own story
In a life of condemnation
There's a great lack of glory

With such little time left,
We use and abuse
But once the clock runs out,
What end will you choose?

This is a really great poem! It speaks a lot to the way our lives are defined, and a little bit in the way we and society (of course this is my interpretation) have made and ruined our lives to the great extent that we already have. Deep, great work! And yes, I am a girl!
