"If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put foundations under them."
Henry David Thoreau

"I fell in love the way you fall asleep; slowly, and then all at once."
John Green

I must shatter
The one
Who believes
In her dreams.

Why is that?

I will prevent them
From becoming
Too strong.

Why must you inhibit her ambitions?

She is too confident
In what she chooses,
And I am her doubt.

Why must you puncture holes in her faith?

I already overpower
Her crumbling strength.

But soon her faith will be no more.

Is my goal.

What will become of you when hope is lost?

I shall lead this body
Away from the path
And decide then.

When will your termination
take place?

But I fear
She will fight back
With clashing swords
And newfound energy.

It’s true,
And I will fight.
Am her;
Am faith.

Then let us begin.

We all have that unrelenting doubt in our mind that tries its best to bring us down.
