Well, the bottom line is there aren't … Continue reading The Pathway to Success
So it all started like a joke, now turned nightmare.

I thought to myself, "this too shall pass", afterall I … Continue reading Sweet tooth, bitter ache.
O frail ol' day, Beautiful as it may, so still and grey. The trees slowly decay, The young and old are held at bay. The day is sombre and devoid of ray. The night is followed by yet another day, And the cycle replays Well, as long as winter stays. O bright new dawn, Wet … Continue reading Seasons (1/2)

I miss you terribly after all these ages. Still, not enough years have gone by to erase the memory of the good times we had together. With you fun was more fun, without you fun is no fun, at all. Every day, I longed for the return of the terrific times. True to our promises, … Continue reading Cold hands of time.

By the river bank, That's where I'll be. Safe and dry, yet within reach when we hanker for the wet. By the river bank, That's where i'll be. When the sun rises beautifully and sets gloriously. By the river bank, That's where I'll be. Chiefly arable, arable enough to nurture our seed. By the river … Continue reading Undying
Being a kid and growing up in the 90's was without doubt awesome. Happiness was genuine and long lasting. Friendship was kind, loving was innocent, anger was short lived, hatred never existed. Then, the only things that preoccupied my mind were growing up to become anything I wanted to be and being able to do … Continue reading Finding X
Some, you wish you'd met earlier Some, you wish you'd never met Some, you wish they'd just go Some, you wish they'd come back Some, you wish they'd stay forever.

In the dead of the night, Lights out, Minds reposed. Awaken I remain, Agitated and disturbed, Totally devoid. Long lost I was in thought, When slowly I heard a sound, A lacking sound bereft of hope.

Love thy neighbor as thine self; this is one of the several unanimous messages relayed by most Faiths.

Like I always say, the internet is full of all things good and bad, literally. It is full of all kinds of people, especially the faceless - the anonymous, otherwise the internet trolls.
