Favorite Quote:
The only people for me are the mad ones... the ones who never yawn and say a commonplace thing but burn, burn, burn, like fabulous yellow Roman candles exploding like spiders against the stars." - Jack Kerouac

To dream is
To be warm and
Loved and safe
And cherished.

To dream is
To be certain
That there will be a future
To fill with dreams.

To dream is
To let one’s mind wander
About and about
Until it tires.

Or to be,
For just one moment,
Aware of all
The possibilities.

This may be ridiculous. I don't know. I'm not the hugest fan of poetry (though I don love some poems), and I've never written any before, but my father told me to try or I'd never know. Which is why I sat down and blurted this out into my computer.
So this is me. Trying.
