Favorite Quote:
Its all for love, L.O.V.E ~Michael Jackson


Broken mountains reaching for the heavens
Illustrating the hidden goal of the past,
Laying to rest notions of anything but
Lost images of accomplished empty dreams.

Moving to stair into the reflecting glass,
A teetering glimpse of hopes flickering flame
Nesting under the struggles and trials of life.

New faith drawn from the hollows of the soul,
Imitating visions of a fairy tale,
No longer incased by its safety net
Growing into something lost long ago.


The author's comments:
I wrote this poem about a man I met. He had a stroke and is now trying to get better. He has been a big inspiration for me as he is still smiling and laughing with a child-like innocence even after everything he's been through.
