Favorite Quote:
I have too many favorite quotes. But here's two:
"Just remember that you're unique, just like everybody else."
"Yesterday was history, tomorrow's a mystery, and today's a gift. That's why it's called present!"
Chocolate Rocks!!!

As It stalks behind a person’s shadow,
It searches for a poor soul to prey upon.
Once It finds what It’s looking for,
BAM! It snatches someone away and blindfolds them.
Then It shoves earplugs in their ears,
And screams in their face,
What It thinks is right.
The person has no choice but to agree,
And since It inhabited their lives,
Their brain is too numb to think.
Then under Its command, the person
Wanders around dumbly, spreading lies,
Rumors, Threats, Insults, Opinions.
And It is too evil to stop what It’s doing.
It’s enjoying it. It’s enjoying the popularity,
While the person It’s controlling,
Is suffering in pain. But It numbed all their senses,
So they don’t realize that they’re hurt.
And they don’t realize they need to heal themselves.
Then they live their whole lives,
Not realizing what they did.
Not realizing what they all missed.
And once they reach their end,
With an empty heart, empty soul, empty mind,
It leaves them, suddenly bored of this person
And they finally discover,
That they ruined their lives,
For allowing It to enter them,
And it’s too late to fix their lives.
Sadly, it’s the end of that person’s life,
But it’s never the end of Its evil doings.
. . . Unless . . .
Everyone opens their minds, hearts, souls,
eyes, ears, emotions,
Then all that, will provide them protection,
From It,
From those evil thoughts of beauty.

I wrote this poem for a contest. The theme was "Beauty is..." This is one of my views of beauty, but I think that sometimes, it could be good after all. ~Chocolate Rocks!!! <3
