Favorite Quote:
Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible. ~T.E. Lawrence

The walls are breaking down
It once was beautiful
Now dilapidation takes hold
Chipping away at the skin, showing the bones of the wall
The bones are breaking down
Something is growing
Pushing out against those bones
Sticking its fingers in the cracks
It needs to come out, show its face to the sun.
There is a window now, and beauty, and the rest lay in ruins.
