Favorite Quote:
For those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will fly on wings like eagles, they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.

When I was young
I wandered
When I was lost I thought.
I thought of home,
My family, my things,
My essence.
I Remembered the door, and wondered
why it was locked at knight.
“So people don’t take our things,”
said my father.
“So we can be safe.”
Said my mother.
But how can I be safe,
I thought,
If others mean me harm?
So I came to a conclusion.
Innocent, as I was.
Risky, as I liked it.
Others wished me harm
Because they cannot see.
The solution, then,
Is to remove the blindfolds
Of greed, despair, doubt, power!
And show them my world!
Show them forgiveness and hope,
And free them from their cages!
