Favorite Quote:
People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out but when the darkness sets in their true beauty is revealed only if there is light from within.
By Elisabeth Kuebler-Ross


Spilling toxicity as if a fountainhead
Rage spews out of the black aura
Of that poor, charred soul.
Hazardous to those that venture too near
Suffering the light kiss of that spray
Of overflowing bitterness.
It permeates even the toughest skin,
Easily absorbed as hungrily
As the sun’s rays,
And just as scorching.
For wrath burns raw and red,
Destructive and deadly when untamed.
Flickering flames lick, scarring surroundings,
Testing what articles will catch
And join in their hellish melee.
