Favorite Quote:
There is freedom waiting for you
on the breezes of the sky,
and you ask “What if I fall?”
Oh, but my darling,
what if you fly?

~Eric Hanson

The kind-hearted sword

is afraid of blood


and does not wish


to harm


but he is timid


and unable


to stand up for himself


against human hands


so he weeps red


with every swing.
