Favorite Quote:
live as if you'll die tomorrow, dream as if you'll live forever

The flame dances in the dark of night
She sits alone next to it and weeps
She is trying to okay with all her might
She almost stops crying but then the thought upon her creeps

The flame is blurred through her tears
She sits there just starring at the bright flame
She watches it as her thoughts clear
She sits sorting her thoughts looking for someone to blame

She sees the answer for the question at hand
She leans over and blows the candle out
She knows how to make the problems land
She stands and goes to bed without a shout.
