Favorite Quote:
"On him does death lie heavily, who, but too well known to all, dies to himself unknown."
-Seneca the Younger

Peace of mind is not all, my darling sweet
Comfort will not do anything for you
These small things will not give you what you seek
Stay hushed is what you are compelled to do
But deep inside you long to hunt and fight
I can see the hunger and the vigor
I see that want and blood lust in your eyes
And the want of beastly war grows bigger
Alas you stay like a silent old man
And still yet honey you do not dare preach
Time is passing like an hourglass of sand
And their illusions grip you like a leach
You will sit there while your desire does call
You and I both know peace of mind is not all
