Favorite Quote:
"I put my heart and my soul into my work, and have lost my mind in the process." - Vincent Van Gogh

I flutter in-between those conspicuous ideals
And try to hold above their siren call your heart;
But I found that life is not kind to those who love—
I found that it mercilessly tears them apart.

But even so—

You might think that the whole world is wrong,
And that the light doesn’t quite reach the trees,
But I found a nice place to sit and think here—
Promise you’ll save some goodness for me.

The author's comments:
I wrote this about my best friend Grace. I'm easily overwhelmed by the petty tendencies of two-facedness, backstabbing, vanity, lying, and so forth--it makes me really wary of people in general. But Grace is such a wonderful and impossibly kind person--she's not perfect, but she's so understanding and thoughtful and beyond the trivial habits that usually plague our youth these days, and she's my angel--she reminds me that not everyone is like this.
I love her so much, and this is for her.
