-when you come to the edge of all the light you have, and are about to step off into the darkness of the unknown, faith is knowing one of two things will happen; 1. there will be solid ground for you to stand on, or 2. you will be taught how to fly


He was a pyramid of multi-colored diamonds and rocks.
He was a glowing star, brighter than the sun.
He was Noah, building the Arc. And Jesus, healing the blind.
No one was scared at his time.
You could take his hand, and dive for your dreams.
He was a threat to men around him. He was everything he should have been.
He was Hercules; a fighter.
He was King Tut; a king.
He was my hero; a hero.
He was a lovely gem.
He was a ruby, a pearl, a diamond, a real work of art,
Of art,
He was.
