Favorite Quote:
"The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall." -Nelson Mandela

Heart beat

“Shh,” they whisper

Their words floating from one

Rafter to the next, while hushed feet



To be liberated like a 

Caged lynx, a graceful one

With a skirt and 

No claws
