Favorite Quote:
I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. -Audrey Hepburn


Strange creatures, humans are.
They revel in their fantasies,
Of love at first sight, not murky or marred.
And life without death,
A gem in a jar.

Such joy in their eyes, warm and blue,
And hope in their hearts, painfully bright.
Life is a game, where souls are renewed,
Where pride comes back,
Battered and bruised.

Eventually these humans grow tired and restless,
And dream of a life where ease is a given.
Perhaps they’ve forgotten, that this is a test.
A life with a meaning
Precious at best.
