Favorite Quote:
“The true genius shudders at incompleteness – and usually prefers silence to saying something which is not everything it should be.” – Edgar Allan Poe

When the positives are hard to find
even when you close your eyes
and just think.

The minus signs swarm through your skull
screaming and shouting “drab, dumb, dull”
and you weep.

The insults keep flying, won’t let up
chiseled crumbles start to pile up
and you stop

And you breathe.
Then you search and search with no leave
not one positive or joyful thought.

And your stoic statue cracks.
