Favorite Quote:
"We are not now that strength which in old days
Moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are---
One equal temper of heroic hearts,
Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield. "


Have you seen your name yet, it’s etched in black
On the side of a tree that stands tall under the collapsing sky
And no matter how dark those skies get,
Love will never give way to rhyme

In defeating fate, we are powerless
Against a bigger clock, one that tells our destinies hours
But I am the minute hand on that clock
Although, only time will tell when a soul is to join the flowers

Have you seen the other half of my heart?
For long ago it was cast away to sea
No longer can I see it grow, or feel its warmth
Perhaps it was not meant to beat in me

Have you seen your name yet?
For it’s etched in black
