Favorite Quote:
“Only the very weak-minded refuse to be influenced by literature and poetry.”
― Cassandra Clare

The earth is a strange place
So dirty and convoluted
Darkened by the daily race
And that we ourselves have polluted

As I fly above humanities home
The cities, the sounds, the sea
Above the place that I have roamed
Above the cries, the pain, the pleas

Everything that I held dear
Is nothing but a shallow breath
In time it will but disappear
Along with me upon my death

This sounds so dark and gloomy
But to me it's all but this
For my life is full and blooming
Full of love and full of bliss
