Favorite Quote:
There is freedom waiting for you
on the breezes of the sky,
and you ask “What if I fall?”
Oh, but my darling,
what if you fly?

~Eric Hanson


Those who build their thrones
on the shoulders of those
they use
will fall
when their wounded subjects
bow to worship
in an extravagant tumble
of gold and diamonds
which will string themselves
through the servant’s
cowl.
