Favorite Quote:
“Truth is always stranger than fiction. We craft fiction to match our sense of how things ought to be, but truth cannot be crafted. Truth is, and truth has a way of astonishing us to our knees. Reminding us, that the universe does not exist to fulfill our expectations. Because we are imperfect beings who are self-blinded to the truth of the world’s stunning complexity, we shave reality to paper thin theories and ideologies that we can easily grasp – and we call them truths. But the truth of a sea in all it’s immensity cannot be embodied in one tidewashed pebble.”

I see them.
They are everywhere.
Only Memories,
of a haunted past.
Just souls,
for eternal rest.
I watch,
as they wait,
for immortal serenity.
They hope,
for never-ending peace.
they suffer,
by a cruel demise.
Simply ghosts,
held back
from undying tranquility,
as they linger,
for a savior
to send them,
to perpetual prosperity.
