Favorite Quote:
“There comes a time in our lives when we do things that we don’t understand. We confuse ourselves, we might even logically oppose our impulses and yet we act on them anyway... There are some things that we feel that we absolutely must do. We might know that they are wrong, or pointless, or gravely punishable, and yet we do them anyway. These actions are not born of anger or emotion – we are perfectly sober. It’s rather inexplicable. When the time comes, we can’t stop ourselves and so we cannot blame ourselves.” -Umasi, Truancy

Walking through the corridors of the night,
I travel alone through the endless dark.
I search for something, a place or landmark.
On my black path, do I go left or right?

I look for one who’ll understand my plight.
The night holds my heart, forging a dark mark.
Will I ever find my light or my spark?
Though the endless void, no end is in sight.

One day I saw my world begin to bloom.
The black coils of dread began to recede.
From pale light, kind hands now extend.

The hand I now grasp pulled me from my doom.
With this new group, I made a bond, a creed.
Best friends have brought my sorrow to an end.

This sonnet is about how alone I felt when I was little. When I found my true friends, they helped me get off of my knees.
