Favorite Quote:
"Reality leaves a lot to the imagination." - John Lennon


I was running,

fast and determined;

happy and hopeful

into an abyss of fog with

everyone else who were brought

into life the same year as my own.

And we were all running;

all at different speeds than others

but my eyes were only looking ahead

and so I was stopped by

the rope

that only hit my waist but somehow managed to shield

my whole body from moving

any farther.

Even the slow ones eventually passed me;

unaffected by the rope.

But I,

I was still fighting

while everyone else ran

ahead.
