Favorite Quote:
I want to live in a world where normal is an insult
--Misha Collins


For ignorance, I amend, apologize

Words of endearment, not to be spoken

Grievance after war 

Never mind the soldiers' footprints

Here, victims ‘n heroes don’t need our foolish tears

~Enfold the Enfeeble~

Leave them be as babies who were never silenced,

and men that failed to reach home

Leave the children who couldn’t say goodbye,

and the women who shall remain repressed in their abandoned homes

Acknowledge that which could no longer sprout, 

yet it blooms so beautifully

~Enfold the Enfeeble~

Feel from the soil, all those who have walked before you.

Let us pray for those unheard of
