Favorite Quote:
Reach high, for the stars lie hidden in your soul, dream deep for every dream precedes to the goal.
-Ralph Vaul Starr

Sitting at the bar
where the jazz music plays
he orders another cup
of the stuff that makes the pain
go away
his head hangs low
no hope for a better day
the tunnels too long
with no light to show him the
another cup is on the table
five more on the way
along with the bottle
of the best vodka in town
to burn his troubles away
he's a father and a husband
with no work that will pay
so he turn's to the bottle
to bring light to his darkened day
