Favorite Quote:
A creative man is motivated by the desire to achieve, not by the desire to beat others.
~Ayn Rand
Act as if what you do makes a difference. It does.
~William James
“Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery. And today? Today is a gift. That’s why we call it the present.” – B. Olatunji


Parallel to the ground is where I’d like to be
Not crooked, not sideways, just parallel
With my right hand over my heart
And my left arm crossed over
Parallel to the ground is where I’d like to be
In my Sunday best
I can make my parents proud
‘Cuz I fought hard
With my battle scars hidden
Underneath the make up
They can pretend
That it wasn’t what it was
That my dream was the
Unthinkable sin
That my over consuming thought
Was death
As I do down under
I’ll remember that
Parallel to the ground is where I’d like to be
