"Do you think, because I am poor, obscure, plain, and little, I am soulless and heartless?" -Jane Eyre
"Waiting is painful. Forgetting is painful. But not knowing which to do is the worst kind of suffering." -Paulo Coelho
"Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will spend its whole life believing that it stupid." -Albert Einstein


I whisper through the bottomless ocean;
I sail above the land,
Fighting the happiness of mortality,
But against Death I stand.

Through the shadows of the forest
To the crowded space of the street,
I struggle with whom I please
And ignore being discreet.

Under armor and hope I lie,
Making not a sound until I play.
I wreak havoc on hidden fault
And let no discrimination in my way.

Before Death’s petty jealousy prevails,
I torment more those who I admire.
Each scream and each tear I soak
Until I expel the liquid onto their eternal fire.
