Favorite Quote:
I like quotes. Quotes are cool.

One good poem
is worth
a hundred lighted fire-flies
on a hazy night in july
when the air is cool
and you laugh with the innocence
of a gentle babe coddling its way into this world.
And it’s worth
those thousand times when you were
beaten down
by your enemies
(and sometimes by your friends)
and when you would sit and wish for
a million kind words to relieve you of your sorrows.

I tried to capture how rewarding writing is because it allows you to take your pain and turn it into something beautiful.
