Favorite Quote:
There is a tide in the affairs of men, which taken at the flood leads on to fortune. But omitted all the voyages of their lives will be drowned in sorrows and misery. On such a full sea are we now afloat; we must take our ventures or forever be lost

The absence of Hope, is a life ending.
It is a bomb exploding.
Planes crashing,
And a martyr burning.

The absence of Hope, is the sun setting: to never rise again.
It is the fish drowning,
And the sky falling.
The ocean roaring and the lion purring.

The absence of Hope, is the silent cry of Romeo.
It is the love of hate,
And the hate of love.
It's the betrayal of sun by rain.

The absence of Hope is the greatest Despair.
