They say the world's a stage -
On which we all must play a part.
Which is you - the man of wisdom?
Or the fool, with captured heart?
Time is said to be a healer,
But healing is an art.
Eternity could not rectify,
The incision in my heart.
Excerpt from "Shattered Reflections" We used to have a special place,
My best friend and I.
Where by the lake we'd sit and watch
Twilight steal across the sky.
... But dreams are often shattered
and turbulence is stirred -
Where violence breaks serenity,
with every harsh and bitter word.
