Favorite Quote:
"'For I know the plans I have for you', declares the Lord, 'plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.'" Jeremiah 29:11. Thank you Lord, for this future you've given me.

And I'll make myself a sentiment,

I'll rescue all your pain.

I'll drag my heart across the floor,

From the ocean to the plain.

I'll read about temptation,

I'll study all of war.

I'll break a record in flat time,

And I'll settle all the scores.

Love is just a simple word,

With nothing to tie it to.

But when it comes to giving up,

I owe it all to you.

Life is just a figment,

Of each and all's imagination.

It takes time, patience, practice,

And a little realization.

Time isn't wasted,

But only merely spent.

If you simply give me a second,

I'll tell you how it went.

You fell upon your knees,

To show me all you bleed.

I laughed a little in your face,

But told you what you need:

"Honey, listen up to what I say,

I'll give you all the secrets.

Life is just a game you play,

With nothing left beneath it.

I don't know who you are,

I sure don't know where you been,

But if you keep on falling down,

There'll be nothing left to live."

I haven't wrote poetry and such a long time.. It's just been coming to me lately, though, and feels so right.
