Favorite Quote:
What things there are to write, if only one could write them! My mind is full of gleaming thought; gay moods and mysterious, moth-like meditations hover in my imagination, fanning their painted wings. But always the rarest, those streaked with azure and the deepest crimson, flutter away beyond my reach. ~Logan Pearsall Smith


Did I ever think before
That the one thing that would keep me from dying
Should be not climbing high
Or searching, dreaming or finding a way to fly
The one thing to make me strong
Stronger than I could ever be on my own
Would not in my way or up ways or sideways
But only by putting aside offered crowns
Only by falling down

Falling down
Though the darkness seems forever
Falling down
Though uncertainty clings like a fetter
Through the cold and wind
And voices that never end
You want to close your eyes
But by falling down
You are falling high

It's so hard to measure truth
And keep it in your pocket tied down so it can't come loose
All the things you want more
Burning your hands on the key of the door
The entrance to paradise
How could I ever think twice
And look around to this way and that way and other ways
Oh please throw away all past crowns
Open the door and fall down

Falling down
Though the darkness seems forever
Falling down
Though uncertainty clings like a fetter
Through the cold and wind
And voices that never end
You want to close your eyes
But by falling down
You are falling high

Sitting at His side
Returning His smile
Falling down
Is falling high
