    Reincarnation

    I am a firm believer in past lives and reincarnation so I do not think we ever really die. Yes our physical forms may perish but our spirit always reawakens in another body or another spiritual form.  So in essence we all rise from the ashes of our decayed physical...

    A Comment Story

    One Day.

    I always say the past makes you who you are. And what you do now will effect your future. I can't say whether I'm such a big idiot or jackass for the decisions that I've made that are affecting me right now as I am typing this down. They are pretty humiliating to admit and I have...

    Battlefield!

    O Fortune, like the moon you are changeable, always waxing or waning; hateful life first oppresses and then soothes as fancy takes it; poverty and power it melts them like ice. Fate -- monstrous and empty, you whirling wheel, stand malevolent, well-being is vain and always fades...
