Favorite Quote:
"I trust everyone. I just don't trust the devil inside them."
Troy Kennedy-Martin

Your corpse begins to stiffen,
Pain in your gut that never loosens,
Shriveled to the bone to the very middle,
Pain that spreads in your legs,
A breeze rising in over your head,
Bones that break with a quick shake,
Weak in the grave without meek,
Now with two broken legs, you still have a head,
Think, Think it says,
Loosen the pain or die in vain.

The author's comments:
The poem sounds terribly morbid but to me it gives on a different meaning then just dieing in a grave in vain. It is just another reminder of how life gives you new challenges, what do you do? You can't get up, no, you have to get back up on your own two feet and start over again until you triumph it head on.
