Favorite Quote:
To love, to be loved. To never forget your own insignificance. To never get used to the unspeakable violence and vulgar disparity of the life around you. To seek joy in the saddest places. To pursue beauty to its lair. To never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple. To respect strength, never power. Above all to watch. To try and understand. To never look away. And never, never to forget.”

Smile you fool.
Don't you know facades
keep you alive in this world?

Dry your tears sweetness.
Crying amidst people
will expose your tenderness.

Keep your head up darling.
If you glance down,
the darkness will devour you.

Get up, my dear.
Walk off the many beatings
to appear immune to agony.

Learn to sing my love
So we can hear the music
and dance through the misery.
