Favorite Quote:
The supreme prayer of my heart is not to be learned, rich, famous, powerful, or good, but simply to be radiant. I desire to radiate health, cheerfulness, calm courage, and good will. I wish to live without hate, whim, jealousy, envy, fear. I wish to be simple, honest, frank, natural, clean in mind and clean in body, unaffected - as ready to say I do not know, if it be so, and to meet all men on an absolute equality - to face any obstacle and meet every difficulty unabashed and unafraid.
I wish others to live their lives, too - up to their highest, fullest, and best. To that end I pray that I may never meddle, interfere, dictate, give advice that is not wanted, or assist when my services are not needed. If I can help people, I'll do it by giving them a chance to help themselves; and if I can uplift or inspire, let it be by example, inference, and suggestion, rather than by injunction and dictation. That is to say, I desire to be radiant - to radiate life.
-Elbert Hubbard


Walking through the hallways
Feeling your stolen glances
Unsaid emotions
Hurt by your actions
Pondering who will take the first step

I cannot play the game much longer
For someone who has hurt me in the past
Wondering why it is?
How stupid must you be

Slowly slipping through your fingers
Nothing you can do
You had your chance
The chance has left

Pass me by
Time has slipped
Grief you have caused
Yourself not I



Regret you must bear
As of which is an empty chair
Please…
Pass Me By

I really like the last stanza and how it flows. It stands on its own aside from the rest. Its a quote that I hopefully remember.
