		Paint the sky in optimistic light
		Hope descends in serene...

Premium Member Beneath the Shattered
Test me
I am willing
To fail

Is not fatal
At all

All things
Are born to be

Break free
From the outer
Hard shell

Shells can
Hide the beauty

With love
Flowing freely
We glow

For all the world

It seeps out of my porosity 
feeding the insanity

I'm a Warrior

Don't bleed of fear

Armed and ready for battle

Anytime Anywhere

Don't look for trouble

But if trouble be

Skies of lightning and thunder

Strike my enemies
