Favorite Quote:
The Flint

by Christina Rossetti

An emerald is as green as grass,
A ruby red as blood;
A sapphire shines as blue as heaven;
A flint lies in the mud.

A diamond is a brillant stone,
To catch the world's desire;
An opal holds a fiery spark;
But a flint holds fire.


There are many crazy things in life, and it seems like no one understands. 
Someone could go soaring, but have trouble finding lands. 
I wish that things would make more sense,  
But everybody is just so dense. 
 
What’s wrong with them? 
It’s so bad that I had to write a song about them. 
What do I have to do make things less strange, 
Because that would be one amazing change. 
 
I want back what I had before, 
I won’t hold back, and I won’t close the door. 
You can see the things that can be different. 
We can change some things that are current. 
 
What’s wrong with them? 
It’s so bad that I had to write a song about them. 
What do I have to do make things less strange, 
Because that would be one amazing change. 
 
You see, there are many things that can be better. 
Someone just needs to Write a letter. 
We all think life is great now, 
But I might as well stop and just take a bow.

I wrote this to explain how things need to change for the better, because there are many things going on in life that isn't really the best. I just really hope that things these days will get better.
