    At an hour late in the night, my eyelids felt not time’s gravity. The stars shone luminously in the sky like scattered diamonds. The moon’s romantic glow in the black, velvety blanket above added to the phantasmagorical beauty of the outside world. The habitual croaking and chirping tonigh...

    A red rose overshadowed by pines, Despite the darkness, radiantly shines. The successful are the rose; The world is their repose. Nothing is beyond success’s confines. A wilting daisy in the summer’s heat Grows relentlessly at dehydration’s feet. The successful are the daisy. The wo...

    Amongst a sea of apathetic beings, I find myself drowning. My strength is the will to live, to be an individual. I swim towards the shore, fighting the current, expressing my ideas.
