Favorite Quote:
"Said we go to war just to bring us together, I believe in Love, I believe in forever..."

"Eyes see everything..." -Devon Torble,

"Caught up in love"- Joseph M. Lyons,

"I speak my words, through a broken truth,
...I bite my lip, and taste its guilt,
I see heaven on the horizon, but I turn my back,
Paradise must wait,
For when it dies,
The truth shall be revealed…" - Joseph Michael Lyons,

"Seen through an angel’s eyes,
I’ve found love where it truly lies,
And when that angel cries,
All my pain slowly dies…" - Cassandra Burnes and Joseph Lyons

As we lay down our arms,
Can you hear it; can you forget?
Do you feel the blood that soaks the ground, and mourns the blackened sky?
Gifted to live, but destined to die here; confined to these vengeful grounds,
Earth… is thy own battlefield,
Appreciated only in death, I’ve enslaved my own morality,
And in doing so created myself to be the lone soldier,
Patriot to one country, and sworn enemy to another,
Quality of life is no commodity in warfare,
Long as the graves of one nation fill faster than that of its competitor,
Armies shall stand ready, prepared kill and willing to die for a cause they were never told
