“Hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard.” ~Tim Notke

I am of few words for you, but many for my paper. ~Anonymous

Many lives taken.
To crash and burn one by one.

They drive away not knowing,
not knowing that they will never return.
Smoke, heavy in the air,
burning into the night.
Red darkness spattered,
A seatbelt left unbuckled.
A cry left unanswered.
