Favorite Quote:
"The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen."
-Elizabeth Kubler Ross


Am I just a photograph hanging on your wall?
Not caring if it’s slowly fading
Because it’s better to fade, than not be there at all.
Or am I more like your mirror,
Because when you look you see
The dark reflection,
Your need for a war,
That took me years to ignore.
No, I think where I lie
Is the dirt beneath your feet.
Without me you couldn’t stand,
But you can’t stand the thought of me.

I like it. It has good flow and I like the imagery. My favorite lines were the last two. Nice work.
