Favorite Quote:
You do not wake up one morning a bad person. It happens by a thousand tiny surrenders of self-respect to self-interest. Robert Brault

I stand alone
Prone to any danger that may come.
Something keeps me there, something strong.
I move onward feeling smaller,and smaller.
While whatever stalks me grows taller, and taller.

I turn quick to see what it is
My attempt failed, I fell and I fell.
I hit the ground, I yell.
But hear no sound
It surfaces from the shadows,eyes aglow.
I slowly retreat preparing for an attack.
It's expression changes from aggression to fear
I realize like me, he is also stuck down here
Then, all of a sudden I rise up high above earth
then a bright light....
Clear!...Clear!...we have heart beat!
