Favorite Quote:
“There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance. We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections. If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our potential to create. Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life.”
― John Lennon

The world is cruel to those who fall,

Little hands trying to get up.

I wonder how the world sleeps at night,

Keeping her heart in a cup.

My love for those little hands never fade,

As his face crease with pain.

I wish this world will show you sunshine,

Instead of showing you rain.

And as fear drags on in my head,

You wear a smile.

As if you know something I don't,

If only awhile....

I wish the world will shelter you,

From the pain and from the tears.

To take you into her hands,

Away from the fears.

And the sky to be pure blue,

As our ocean rolls by.

The Earth will hold you in her heart,

Letting you free and fly.

My little brother has to take frequent trips to All Children's Hospital to ensure he has the medication and iron he needs. I wrote this piece as I sat beside him through the night, holding his hand. I hope one day he won't have to live in this pain through his incurable nightmare.
