    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...

    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...

    From The Ashes

    My right hand holds matches, my left holds my past, I hope the wind catches, and burns it down fast, I'm gonna step into the fire, with my failures and my shame, and wave good-bye to yesterday, as I dance among the flames,   so don't try to save me now, let the...

    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...
