Message from Writer

“Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”

DEEP DOWN ON THE WAY TO HEAVEN

    Deep down in the dungeons
    In the castle of the king,
    There was a man
    And I heard him sing,

    ‘Come, come, be not afraid
    when death comes down to get you,
    Just look ahead
    and see what is in your view,

    Can you see the stairway?
    leading up and through the sky,
    Can you see Him the Lord?
    Kneel down and glorify,

    He says unto me ‘drink’
    ‘For it is free’
    And I answer ‘Lord mighty’
    ‘I am with thee.’
     This poem is set in the 13th century, during the crusades of  Pope Innocent III, in the dungeon of Alexios III Angelos. A guard over hears the dying words of a captive soldier.
