Favorite Quote:
To love is to be vulnerable; Triumph is born out of struggle; We notice shadows most when they stand alone in the midst of overwhelming light.

We are
the dry, old bones.
Asleep in graves,
with the musty smell going in us,
as we breathe in
with our tired breaths.

This earthy smell,
all round us,
as we lay inside
these earthly tombs;

almost believing
that we are dead.
When we really are
under a spell,
from the Prince of this World;
we are asleep.

in our slumbering hearts
we must awake.
For this. . .

We can't take this any longer;
Someone is waking us, the dead
from our slumber.
Light is coming through
this dark world.

We must awake
for we are suffocating
from breathing this dusty air;
what light has
is fresh air.

I got inspiration from the Bible from the Book of Ezekiel, I think half of chapter 17. Please, wake up. All i hope is that people will understand what I'm trying to say.
