Favorite Quote:
"Be not afraid of greatness: for some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon them." -William Shakespeare

My body does not belong
but in the dust and the earth.
My eyes do not see
but all the earthly things.
My ears do not hear
but what they want to hear.
My tongue does not taste
but never-lasting goodness.
My hands do not hold
but tangible things.
My heart does not love
but the things it can see.

My soul is the key
for living to be
the only good thing
He wanted for me.
