"...I wish none of this had happened." "So do all who live to see such times, but that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us."

Celestial splendor,
silver, sorrowful, and sad…
sparkles on the marble
of the savior of
this land,
Shadows, stripe and
spite you,
they make me mad
Ever since you’ve gone,
it seems like
forgotten you
So I crawl
to your statue,
and I do lay,
I lay golden orchid crown
around your feet,
In hope,
and I do hope,
that you will see.

Inspired by the song 'Seven Years' by Natalie Merchant. I love the line about the orchids in the song, so I integrated it here, creating a different kind of love story.
