    Pain is temporary. It may last a minute,

    or an hour, or a day, or a year. But eventually it will subside and something else will take it's place. If I quit, however, it lasts forever...

    love. My dad died when I was 12. I was at school when it happened, a teacher told me. I ran to one of the most father-like teacher there, and cried until there were no more tears, just an empty space in my stomach that couldn't be filled. Thank you Mr Arthur.
