Favorite Quote:
All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.
Walt Disney


Tears like fountains as the last one rests,
Chalk stolen, No mercy amidst.
Skin stiff as iron and pale as death,
My only token a kiss on the bloody forehead.
Shameful actions taunt this priceless rock,
Ash grey remorse, my spirit livid ready to bark.
No hope left my children met a loss,
The fair creature’s corpse can now just rot.
Rot like all the centuries left stale,
Generations drained, again we have failed.
Erase this sin from the universe I beg,
Nobody can, this ending was written in pen.
A drought crutches my body, I am weak,
There is No cure, beauty sadly bleak.
Oh forgive us dusty clay figurine,
The sky mimics your skin in mourning.
I tie you to my memory like a rosy bow,
Bye Blue Rhino.

I live in South Africa and I dedicate this to all the murdered rhino's.
