Favorite Quote:
“There comes a time in our lives when we do things that we don’t understand. We confuse ourselves, we might even logically oppose our impulses and yet we act on them anyway... There are some things that we feel that we absolutely must do. We might know that they are wrong, or pointless, or gravely punishable, and yet we do them anyway. These actions are not born of anger or emotion – we are perfectly sober. It’s rather inexplicable. When the time comes, we can’t stop ourselves and so we cannot blame ourselves.” -Umasi, Truancy

Above this place so full of Dread,
There is a Light that shines so bright.
It Shines upon my - Weary head.
My soul is warmed when it takes flight.

Far from that place of Wrath and tears,
I rise through - clouds so White and soft.
My journey’s end is oh so near.
The Savior - holds my soul Aloft.
