Favorite Quote:
If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.

The hands of earthly time spin 'round and 'round,
As I try to cry a pityful plea.
Yet, the ignorant world hears not a sound,
For mercy has not been given to me.

For too long have my words been swept away.
Forever crushed, like waves upon a shore.
I anticipate there will come a day,
When my thoughts and words will be sought out for.

So take your precious time and realize,
The words I speak are nothing but the truth.
Because I can see, deep within your eyes,
You long for the simplicity of your youth.

So together you and I hold the key,
A gateway to be free from reality.

The author's comments:
This sonnet is a representation of the past, present, and future. It unfolds the emotions of helplessness and frustration when your opinions are being ignored, and yet, how precious your ideas truly are.
