Favorite Quote:
An artist's only concern is to shoot for some kind of perfection, and on his own terms, not anyone else's.

-J.D. Salinger


I am not afraid to die,
For it is inevitable, I cannot deny.
I am not afraid to live.
I will face any challenge it may give.
I don't fear monsters, spirits, or ghosts.
I don't fear beasts from distant coasts.
I don't fear men or their creations.
I don't fear wars with distant nations.
I fear not horrors written in pages
Or those on screens or performed on stages.
I don't fear anger from above.
I fear the loss of those I love.

This is a poem I wrote about a year ago in my Creative Writing journal. I don't know exactly where I got the idea.
