Poem: If I Walk Alone

Quote of the day:

Whatever you do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius and power and magic in it.
-Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

If i walk alone
It is not that i have non to accompany me.

If i smile
It is not that i am overtly friendly.

If i flee
It is not that i am not brave.

If i seem fragile
It is not that I am not strong enough.

If i chose you
It is not that i am blind to see.

If i forgive easily
It is not that i have no memories.
