Favorite Quote:
"Would you rather die on your feet or live on your knees?"

Time is that cruel grinding gear
Mercilessly cranking onward
Toilessly watching us toil
For rewards soon lost
In the quiet hum of an incubator
A life
Too brief to matter, too long not to care
Too sweet to give up, too painful to stay
The lingering taste of that brief existence
As the clouds move on
