Favorite Quote:
Never let the fear of striking out keep you from playing the game

With all the suffering and fighting

And all the pain in this world

You left this earth

And despite all of the broken dreams

Despite all of the struggles and burdens

Despite all of the weight of this world

With the last bit of life left in you

You uttered phrases that no other soul in your place would say

"Why do you keep hiding behind your mask,
When even the scars formed by your mistakes
are you own constellations?"

I'm so sorry about your friend... this was such a beautiful and moving poem.
