I do not want you to think you are my sole focus For you are but one of many And this so weakens your resolve For you see I am stretched so thin Yet continuously destroy you I am neither invincible nor omnipresent It should be quite easy for you to defeat me I would not crush you with overwhelming force For hope is my greatest weapon When you lose, I always want you to think it was by a tiny margin.

I can't make you want me But I would if I could I wish there was a way To forget the truth about you I chose to never be angry at you But you just made me cry I gave you everything But you crushed my heart How could I have been so naive? I wanted to believe That someday you would love me But now I see You never cared about me Stand on my shoulders And we will come crashing down I don't have the strength To carry on without you But I have the dignity To not be your slave You said you could never love And still be free You said you would never lie You were just trying to be kind Hope is like poison Too sweet to let go I thought the world of

Beyond Hipocrisy

Beyond Hipocrisy

Here is an essay I wrote today: Identifying hypocrisy in others is a premier way of discrediting them and is a part of the zeitgeist of 21st-century life. Since people tend to produce such an abundance of accessible information on their webpages and networks, it is easy to analyze this information and discover where they have espoused a belief yet expressed contrary actions or statements. Particularly if someone is criticizing you, they can often be discredited not by analyzing their criticism, but by illuminating inconsistencies in their rhetoric and thus demonstrating their moral inferiority, or at least their absence of moral superiority.

Jan. 2014 Update

Hello, once again it's been almost a year since I did anything here. I am glad to report I am graduating in May 2014 with a B.S. in Psychology from University of Central Florida. I have enjoyed my studies a lot, though they have also been quite time-consuming. I posted 2 photos and updated my deviant ID. Hopefully I will be posting photos more often! :thumb429164391: :thumb429164654:

Thank You

Thank You

Thank you to everyone who has used my photos over the past few years! Lately I have been busy working on my B.S. in Psychology, but am going to do some photography over the summer of 2013.
