Favorite Quote:
If you chase two rabbits, you will lose them both.
- Native American proverb

Do not go gentle into that good night but rage, rage against the dying of the light.
- Dylan Thomas

What is past is past -- it is the present and the future that concern us.
- Hiawatha, founder of the Iroquois Confederacy


It's in her bones;

You can't take her away.

It's in her heart;

To show you the way.

It's in her blood;

For thousands of years.

Don't take her away after all these tears.

 

No fancy ring;

Will make her leave;

You can't just bring;

A thread and tell her to weave.

Thank you for reading this! I was originally intending for it to be longer, but I gave up.

Hello, you wanted me to give feedback, so here you go... IDK why, but I like the shortness too. It has a good message, and it's not dramatic or flowery. I can't find anything bad about it. I replied to your comment on Broken Record, if you want to check that out too.
