Favorite Quote:
“If I speak in the tongues of angels, but have not love, I'm only a resounding noise , If I have the gift of knowledge, And if my faith moves mountains high, But have not love I am nothing… Though I know the One, Who holds the stars in the heavens, In the palm of His hand, If I give all I possess , To the poor and the helpless, I'll still gain nothing, Without love… Love's patient, True love is always kind, Love does not envy, Never brags, it's never proud, Slow to wrath, it keeps no records of wrongs against friends, Love forgives… It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.” (1 Corinthians 13:1-5,7)
“If the world hates you, remember that it hated Me first. If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you.” John 15:18-19
"The world is not respectable; it is mortal, tormented, confused, deluded forever; but it is shot through with beauty, with love, with glints of courage and laughter; and in these the spirit blooms..." ~ George Santayana

Go, Do What?
You Don't.
Throwing back up what Society,
Forces Down, Specifics
of Nothing Worth Anything, Worth Everything.
Silence, Disturbing, Weighty,
Speaks Volumes Loudest.
Bare Truth pierces Hearts shielded Heavily with LIES,
Open Eyes!
See what's REAL!
Do you Know what's Real?
I don't.
Sound Emblazoned on the Soul.
But what Worth?
The Slightest!

The author's comments:
This was written as a left hand poem, or the opposite of your dominant hand, it was so weird writing that way, it felt like my subconscious was speaking instead of me... and it was uncontrollable and very liberating.
