Favorite Quote:
And the day came when the risk it took to remain tightly closed in the bud, was more painful than the risk it took to bloom.

Distant noises are gone;
The car horns deafened.
Trees drop their leaves,
Whispering winds suddenly die,
And crash to the ground
Without a sound.
Voices stutter
And then, erased.

But then there are those,
That cannot be toned down.
Some voices, laughs, and the melodies of tunes.
And above all else,
Thundering through the streets,
A heart beats; steady with perseverance.
Days uncounted are speculated,
For one day, as all know,
It shall fall.

The author's comments:
This poem struck me when I read it over. I wouldn't have a single idea how it came to me... or even what I meant of it. I guess it is like those pieces of art where people say, It is what you make of it.
