Favorite Quote:
You unlock this door with the key of imagination. Beyond it is another dimension - a dimension of sound, a dimension of sight, a dimension of mind. You're moving into a land of both shadow and substance, of things and ideas. You've just crossed over into the Twilight Zone.

Gazing at the test,
A beacon of light
Warms my throbbing head.

The bale of stress crushing my agony
Is uplifted by Hope’s brawn and is plunged
Into an ocean of forgetfulness, where
Stress is dragged to away
And is cured by Hope’s glistening rays.

The author's comments:
This poem caps the Test trilogy. The first poem "Stress", depicts the reluctance the speaker feels right before the test, the sequel "Failure", depicts the narrator moaning about failing the test, and "Hope" wraps up the trilogy describing how "hope's glistening rays" cure stress and sprinkles the magic dust of confidence on you to cure your ill self-esteem.
