Favorite Quote:
I am good, but not an angel. I do sin, but am not the devil. I am pretty but not beautiful. I have friends but am not the peacemaker. I am just a small girl in a big world trying to find someone to love.

The heart that feels a thousand pains
And bares them with a grin
Will once again beat lone in vain
never skipping once again

And if love be death
Then I have died and died again
For it is though I am bound by love
And therefore bound to death

The author's comments:
Emily Dickinson's poetry inspired me to write this piece.
