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

Alone in a dark place
No one around to face
Slowly fading away

A small light is shining
My face is now smiling
I shall not fade today.

Grasping the Savior's hand
He shall help me to stand
In Darkness I won't stray

To Paradise I go
Now peace and love I know
It's here I'll always stay

This was written when my beloved grandfather passed away. I was sad for quite awhile, but eventually began thinking that he is in a better place now.
