Favorite Quote:
"Death is just another passage to a new life"

He has brought us grief
He has brought us skills,
While he attacks another person
One more he kills,

He tore us down
But we rose back up,
He tried to tear us apart
But we stuck,

He tried to blind us
But we saw to the end,
Tried to isolate us
But we clung to friends,

He attacked my grandmother
Brought her down,
Turned her once shining smile
Into an unbounded frown,

His attacks not only destroyed her
He brought us down as well,
Making any hopes visible dissolve
Like damned souls on their way to hell,

He made us push through
The mayflower through the tides of the sea,
He showed us we could get through this
Like all people should, but not without plea,

He is a teacher
His lessons are deadly,
He teaches us life’s lessons
He shows us life’s worth living,
