Favorite Quote:
Don't change so people will like you. Be yourself and the right people will love the real you.

Sitting in this empty room

Contemplating life.

Busy nothings float about the air.



Act preoccupied with work

But you’re preoccupied by thoughts.

Don’t fall behind.


Tossing petals on the ground,

From the bouquets you’ve collected.

They are proud of your doings.


But what have I done?

Nothing noteworthy in my book

Unknown purpose unfulfilled.


The staircase I climb is unstable.

Stairs fall away after each step.

But the next step is unseen.




Hands outreached,

I blindly feel my way through life,

Picking flowers along the way.
