Favorite Quote:
humankind has not woven the web of life. we are but a thread within it,whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves. all things are bound together all things are connected.

-chief seattle-

I sat on my porch swing
with tears in my eyes
knowing that this will be
our last good-bye.
no last kiss to soothe the pain,
you left me here all alone
with only this rose to my name.
Why'd you have to leave
this blood red rose
lying outside my door?
you could have just said good-bye
without leaving me this sore.
The thorns, they prick
the wounds of my heart,
who knew that
they could be this sharp?
