Favorite Quote:
Be the change you want to see in the world- Ghandi

Every pick, every scar, every whip recorded well,
Thoughts of rape, lust, and sorrow start to swell,
Numb to the pain, endured a lifetime of sorrow,
Hoping that today will soon be tomorrow.

He starts to reach from deep within,
A way to cope with loss of kin,
He starts to grow and gain power,
He blooms into the blacker flower.
