    I tend to think that anyone who has taken a powerful personal daunting cauese will understand this poem. You feel like giving up, but your life depends on it so much its all you feed on to live....it becomes a cycle, living nad dying, living and dying....the fragility of the human soul over time sometimes makes us want to give up life, but Life itself fights us on..................deep!

    You love to live!
    to love is to kill!

    to live to kill?
    to kill to live!

    Sheeps greed!
    wolves love!

    greed kills love!
    look at that sheep! (Report) Reply

A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
