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


The kind-hearted sword

is afraid of blood

 

and does not wish

 

to harm

 

but he is timid

 

and unable

 

to stand up for himself

 

against human hands

 

so he weeps red

 

with every swing.
