Favorite Quote:
Two woods diverged in a yellow wood and I, I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference

I stare up into the sky, he’s here, I can feel it
He comes around the corner, looking for someone –
Something – but it’s not me, not yet
He’s searching for someone, to steal their life
I’m begging, I’m pleading, why won’t you choose me?
Why would you take away some happy, innocent child?
I know you’re here Death, I feel your presence,
You watch and you stalk – waiting – waiting
I’m here, right in front of you – waiting – waiting
Why take from the innocence? So unexpected and such
I’m still here – waiting – waiting –
You seek out a target, a typical of fifteen
You take some standard accident to
Suck the life out of her.
Many things, I do not know about life, about death
But I do know this one thing –
You have chosen the innocence
And left me
Because some Hells are down below
When other is just living
