So many Qs

  I ponder where do their hopes differ  She drinks of crimson red drops And bites of his flesh They wash the darkness away to reveal a heart white as snow and filled with gold   The sun and moon sing Leave them be, let them believe Without hope man dies.   I ponder yet again … Continue reading So many Qs

Never give up!

    "Giving up is not an option!" Mother's words echoed as I reached my breaking point. Her words from many years ago became a lifeline that pulled me back to reality.
