Favorite Quote:
Everything that is done in the world is done by hope.

That man’s eyes show sadness,
They show his abandonment,
They show his hope
That has died long ago.

He sits there and waits,
For good fortune to hit,
Or his own fateful end,
For he cares not which one.

Why must he reject,
His once loved light,
And allow,
Other’s darkness to consume him.

But I cannot help,
For what can I do?
He is beyond my power.
Dark or light, he may choose.

It Can Only Fly When It Needs To.

The picture you used for this poem connects with the poem so well. Again, this is a great poem.

If all else perished and he remained, I should still continue to be; and if all else remained, and he were annihilated, the universe would turn to a mighty stranger.
-- Emily Bronte, Wuthering Heights

Sad but meaningful. I was especially moved by the last part, where you say that there's nothing to be done for this man, that his fate is for him to choose.
