"To be one's self, is to be truly honest, truly loyal, and truly great."


As I stood, dressed in dark blackness, and white cleansliness;
On the verge, in the foggy lust of the city lights.
I looked upon it in such grief, such dissapointment;
More than dishonor, less than cleansliness.
Worse than it seemed; I sat, whispered, and turned around;
Right than right there, I stood and exchanged my beaming eyes,
With his. He stood tall, in the darkness; his robe of black.
His blade glimmered, shined, silver.
As I looked my eyes turned plush;
My mind went blank; I began to sobber;
My body releasing whatever tears it could withdraw.
I fell dreary to my knees, as the world I had known for years upon years;
Was swept from beneath.
The week there after, I was put six feet down;
Also brought seldomly up. As I looked down I saw
Complete emptiness.

Most people don't know how they're gonna feel from one moment to the next, but a dope fiend has a pretty good idea. They just look at the labels on the little bottles.

I think the description was really great, but the grammatical errors were distracting. I don't normally mind the occasional missing apostrophe or comma or whatever. But the message is strong and portrayed well. Work on grammar, everything else is spot on I say.
