Favorite Quote:
Don't be a victim; be a titan.


We have settled.
We’ve lost our will,
Our words and our thoughts.
We’ve forgotten our ambition;
Can’t remember what we are.
A cry is quieted
By a haunting glance.
A laugh is lost
In the echoing silence.
Sit quietly and stare straight ahead:
This world is no place for emotion.
And this life is no place
For imagination.

Yeah, I know it's short, but I said what I needed to.
