"Glorious, majestic are his deeds, and his righteousness endures forever."
- Psalms 111:3 -

"The first requisite for success is the ability to apply your physical and mental energies to one problem incessantly without growing weary."
- Thomas Edison 1847-1931, Inventor -


Sometimes I hate how I am, the reclusion or seclusion I have imposed on my inner being is so stifling, but yet I can find no way to escape it either, the one I used for guidance deserted and now the only safe place is in this silent world


If all my friends were to jump off a bridge,
I wouldn't jump with them,
I'd be at the bottom to catch them.


there are dreams that we can see, and dreams we can live and yet there are those that fill us the most, the ones we can never have.


sleep many hours lost in time
sleep many ways to run and hide
sleep many days gone forever
sleep until there is no more end


snow upon the ground
trees frocked heavily with the white moisture
beautiful, yet frightening


sometimes I wonder who will wash my back
and I get scared that there never will be anyone to do that


I feel as though I am dead


Give me one more minute
one more hour
one more day

Give me one more thought
one more treasure to store
give me one more thing to think

Give me one more hug
give me one more kiss
before it's taken all away


So many times we try to be more, do more, strive for more than is humanly possible. So many times our dreams never come true, so often we fail in our endeavors and so many times we just quit. and it's okay


After I'm dead I'd rather have people ask why I have no monument than why I have one.
- Cato the Elder -
