Favorite Quote:
Wisdom begins in wonder.

So often abused by the pens of
poets who find a metaphor and seek

to claim it, tame
it, mold it into

something it is not and
shield it from the world's
unworthy gaze

failing themselves to see that
by hiding it away within the deep
recesses of their minds

they have dulled its thorns and hues and
stripped the rose of all potency

robbed it of purpose by plucking its
petals and crushing them
between their fingers

and all this just so
they can write hypocrisy.
