    How Many Times Has It Been?

    Oh well. This seems to be my theme. I am a failed phoenix. Halfway through coming back to life, I die again. Then, I make another attempt to rise from the ashes. I know what I'm doing wrong, but I'm not sure I have the strength to fix things. However, if I don't, then life is...
