Favorite Quote:
Death is not the greatest loss in life


We all end up gone.

Damned to oblivion.

I didn't know so soon.

Everything gone.

       Student.

       Shout into the void.

       Required.

       Safe place.

             Running to swings.

             To my classes.

             A good student.

             The calm.

                    My safe place gone.

                    Safe so I thought.

                    A second home,

                    Second family,

                    My teachers,

                    My classmates,

                    My coaches,

                    My best friend.

                             Gone.

                             Kids.

                             Students.

                             Adults.

                             Teachers.

                                     Did you see targets?

                                     All labor turned to ashes.
