"To these the past hath its phantoms,
More real than solid earth;
And to these death does not mean decay,
But only another birth"
- Isabella Banks


Tears fall like rain
in a place full of pain,
while swords and axes collide.

My shield is weak,
but words can wreak,
And I bow under there feet.

The sickening laughter,
that beats ever after,
I don’t know if I can take it.

So I rise up against,
what they haven't yet sensed,
and release the dragon filled with fire.

The roar drowns them out,
I can’t hear them now,
because I’m too high off the ground.

It’s easy to forget who they are
when I ignore that scar,
that scar that created my heart.

To love is to be vulnerable; Triumph is born out of struggle; We notice shadows most when they stand alone in the midst of overwhelming light.

Your words created pictures. I love it. We live in a battelfield. All I can say is wonderful job, Liv.Harris. Thanks for sharing this!
