Favorite Quote:
Todo se vale en amor y la guerra.

And since you know you cannot see so well as by reflection, I, your glass, will modestly discover to yourself, that of yourself, which you yet know not of.

The slice of a knife,
With a long sleeve shirt,
Smelling of iron,
The red weaping hurts,

Hiding a life,
Behind closed doors,
Just to ruin it,
Just a little bit more,

A smile, a frown,
All emotions are lain,
Just not those of your own,
You feel so ashamed,

The A on the test,
The F at life,
Nobody knows,
No owl at night,

Then it all ends,
Not through happiness or sad,
But you take your life,
From no one else's hands.
