Favorite Quote:
"When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace." - Jimi Hendrix

To fall once it but an accident,
A minor mishap led astray from grace.
It is soon forgotten,
And is never held for blame.

As is a mistake by Mother Nature,
That is one truly without malice,
Is just as soon forgotten
And does not deeply callous.

It is when, and only when,
The carelessness runs twice,
That those before it are burned
And tortured with what is not right.
