Favorite Quote:
"Around here, however we don't look backwards for very long. We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we're curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths." - Walt Disney

Deep underground

A deafining sound

Labrynth of power

Forever silent

Something of a coward


When the time comes

It will collaspe your lungs

Bubbling under the surface

Waiting to burst

To rear it's ugly face


Choises the wrong side

Everyone must hide

Murky, darkness

Explodes into the light of day

Seems so heartless

The author's comments:

This poem is inspired by the frase 'Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words with never hurt me'. This imagery hopes to show how damaging words can really be.
