Favorite Quote:
"The ink my flow through the point of this pen, but I decide my own masterpiece."~Me


Evening mists started to rise-
Rising for the deed of
Supplying the morning due.

Night masked the name
Of sun-filled days, only
Hiding as cold wind blew.

The shadow that never
Fails to remain-
Of the Self deemed true.

‘Twas the nightly norm-
If memory serves,
As it will always do.


The author's comments:
I was inspired by a certain passage from Charles Dickens', "Great Expectations", as well as the search of the Self in Hesse's, "Siddartha".
