Favorite Quote:
Do what you like and like what you do.

You were once a caterpillar
Now you’re in a cocoon
You claim to be a killer
I’ll prove you wrong soon

Are you hiding?
Are you waiting?
From all the chiding?
For day’s awakening?

You say you are a monster
Demonic as fire
Yet you sit here in a cluster
Pretending to play a lyre

I understand there’s good and bad
But that is the same for all
So why don’t you break a tad
And let yourself fall?

Eventually your wings will spread
As broad as the night sky
I’ll be waiting beside the bed
I’ll be there till it’s time for good-bye
