The boss chooses the names.
The option to accept or not.

shattered guilt & muted regret
is all that remains of its cell.

Who could abandon you here
to hide instead of dancing?

Bravery


Bravery

Cowards

Bravery is compassionate

Mistakes We Can't Recover

Mistakes We Can’t Recover

Some mistakes we can’t recover:
Destiny won’t be rewritten
if opportunity has passed.

Wisdom bought at happiness’ cost:
at such a price, best use it well!

A scene recalled years later
without the impediment
of earlier assumptions.
The clue stick of life strikes late.
