Favorite Quote:
Be what you would seem to be -- or, if you'd like it put more simply -- Never imagine yourself not to be otherwise than what it might appear to others that what you were or might have been was not otherwise than what you had been would have appeared.

A passionate red paints a new beginning,
A lighter red paints the love that they share,
A faded red paints the love that is thinning,
A lonely white paints the life that they’ll bear.

A forlorn grey paints their children’s forever,
A menacing black paints the lie that they live,
An empty brown paints their time spent together,
A passionate red paints the anger they’ll give,

A son tainted by the colors of his parents,
A daughter looking for the love that it lacks,
He injects himself until his veins are transparent,
She loves every boy and dresses in black.

A legacy painted a passionate red,
A lonely family that can’t let go.
A hopeless blue is the lives that they led,
A waterfall of paints in a turbulent flow.
