Favorite Quote:
Never imagine yourself not to be otherwise than what it might appear to others that what you were or might have been was not otherwise than what you had been would have appeared to them to be otherwise. -Lewis Carroll, Alice's Adventures In Wonderland


A place where children die,
And dreams and hopes are ended;

Spiritless souls there lie,
Never to be mended.


A lord of untold power,
One of great lore;
Shall come to the tower,
Where those dead ones are bore.

The old stone doors will he cleave,
Its guards will at once be gone;
Up the tower will he speed,
In his mail of zircon.

On a steed of gods shall he ride,
Then restored shall those soles be;

In the halls of Hell they'll not reside,
Light's beauty will they see!

I hold my alma mater very close to my heart: this "bizarro" poem represents a school that is the complete opposite of my alma mater in every way possible.
