Favorite Quote:
Life is Scared and Death is Naïve

With my surprise
My life turned around with glee and despair
Helping the cause
I hope
Outside of the mind was the book
Inside the mind was the pen and ink that created
I search for the book
In time I thought I would
To my surprise
Age caught up with me so quickly
When looking for this book I grew older and older
Hoping that I will find this book before I died
When I was on my death bed
I saw the book in my hands
My world turned upside down
Time flew by
Then I was young again
I quickly opened the book
But what I saw
Was not what expected
It was my life story
