Favorite Quote:
There are plenty of tonguesthat gossip, and few minds that think.


Traded in sunburned shoulders and castles in the sand,
In favor of small print texts and words I do not understand.
Exchanged countless beanie babies and my imaginary friends,
Preferring loneliness and relationships dead ends.
Cast out all reality and sealed its prison with a kiss,
Took the lies and treachery, for ignorance is bliss.
Spread the dusty pages of nursery verse and rhyme,
All the while wanton, for a simpler time.
Auctioned off naivete and useless innocence of mine,
Unrepaid and broken, there came a heavy fne.
Looked upon the fragments, scewed upon the floor,
Squnted, stared, and recognized not even the shell of a person anymore.


The author's comments:
As we grow and change, with each step we think that we understand this time around. We believe that we have gained unspeakable knowledge, which, in turn, only makes us foolish. Yet, it is through naivete we grow wise.
