Favorite Quote:
The future is unwritten. Yet, authored by the past. Our choices create what is soon to come, from our past to future. We cannot see the future, but dwelling on the past will strand us. Wait in the present until Present becomes past and future, present

Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will not fear. For I have traded my sword for a pen because through violent sins, I will not repent again. Reborn like a Phoenix from ashes of a past life, a new man and with a match, my past life I will ignite. I strive to the light, though escaping is hard try as I might. Through months of recovery, months gone by, months of backing off the edge, and trying not to die. Now as I get closer to the end of Nero Angelo's Alley, the shadow of death, I fear the darkness. But I put away my sword, and now it rusts in the valley of the shadow of death.

The author's comments:
Leaving a past life is a hard thing to do, leading to more trials and tribulations than you might have had in the vary life you are leaving behind. one thing is for sure: things will get a lot harder before they get better again.
