Favorite Quote:
"Actions speak louder than words, but it is the intentions behind the actions that speak the loudest."

The world was but mine to grab,
Though common sense slipped away.
Leaving I, a thoughtless thinker,
My mind so easily frayed.

Human I am, a common man,
Tall like a sprouting flower.
Though in the eyes of greater men,
Life had no purpose with the absence of power.

But I kept my pride, I kept my life,
At the price of immortality,
Though I may not be remembered,
At least I've kept morality.

The author's comments:
This poem is about not selling your soul to evil actions to achieve something only fools would aspire to receive: Fame. It is the life of a normal man, a man who chose a path of morality as opposed to a life of fame.
