Favorite Quote:
“Only the very weak-minded refuse to be influenced by literature and poetry.”
― Cassandra Clare

I saw placid levies
Keeping torturous memories at bay
I saw jagged walls
Guarding a heart from a world of hurt
I saw vacant eyes
Their luster gone with their hope
I saw emaciated arms
Showing what's been and what's to come
I saw puckered scars
Lingering from an untold past
I saw anger
Burning from the inside out
But now all I see is white canvas

The author's comments:
As a missionary the orphans I visit daily have changed from poor souls to a white canvas waiting to be painted.
