"Writing is perhaps the greatest of human inventions, binding together people who never knew each other, citizens of distant epochs. Books break the shackles of time. A book is proof that human beings are capable of working magic."


Hidden under the rock was I,
The waves nearby crashed, they splashed and played against the rock,
Each individual wave, a tiny finger, looking, searching for a way in,
Ever so often finding crack here, a crack there, dousing me with
Fearful water, chilling me to the very bones that carved my little
Sanctuary;







Hours went by, Days it seemed,
Drip! Drip! Drip! The maddening sound a scourge unto my ears, the water
The very essence of my seemingly endless desolation or edification as it may be,
And there I stood, sometimes cringing, sometimes standing firm; Drip! Drip!
Yet it was my duty, I had to stay, I needed to stay, for I was humanity’s
Sanctuary;
