Favorite Quote:
Holding onto anger is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die.

Rising from your heavy soul,
You leave the world but not in whole.
Wishing for life to start anew,
And unaware of this clue:

Karma comes and karma goes
One should always watch its foes
For no one alive has nothing to rue;
Find something worthy to pursue.

Despite the cries of protest,
You venture on, possessed.
Dreams of unreality in mind,
You left your common sense behind.

Believing in nonexistence
One becomes senseless;
Reality obscured by illusions,
Mirages overshadow reasons.

Whatever choice you take,
Remember to shun the fake.
You'll only have yourself to blame,
So all in all, life is fair game.

The author's comments:
This couplet poem is inspired by a fiction fantasy/mystery story that I am currently writing. I decided to look into the villain's point of view, which led to the creation of this article.
