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


Rust
For the decaying threads of our love

Dust
For the ashes of my memories

Lust
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
Unshakable
