Favorite Quote:
I cannot give you the formula for success, but I can give you the formula for failure--which is: Try to please everybody.
Herbert Bayard Swope

For the decaying threads of our love

For the ashes of my memories

For the goodness in life

Never again will I be broken, because my heart is already steel
Forever will I stand tall, no more will I reel
I will soar high above the whispers of the past
And build a fortress that will last
Last till long aged soil disappears
Until eternity nears
Love I will not for it causes pain
From solitude I will only gain
Rock solid and capable
