Favorite Quote:
There can be no society without poetry, but society can never be realized as poetry, it is never poetic. Sometimes the two terms seek to break apart. They cannot.
-Octavio Paz

Sparks ignite,
Then embers smolder.
Life pulls like the tide,
As a year defines me older.
Rather closer, seventeen,
With new chances to give.
Yet, my gift is terrifying and terrific-
A new opportunity to live.

The author's comments:
Another year, another chapter. I am the author of my own story.
