The Beginning of The End.

21 is the magic number, a number of resilience. Darkness fills the air as blood vessels throb to the beat of a raging heart, a beat that resonates through to the tips of fingers spurring an uncontrollable shiver. Words exchanged carry the scent of hatred and the acrid smell of anger. Celebrated by millions, it shall be shunned till the day the brew stops flowing and separate abodes be found. Dine as you may without me for values behind the feast have long been forgotten. Lie no more we shall as the time has come for a change, a change i pray to a god who turned his back, i pray for the betterment of this union. A fire, a fire whose flames will reach for the heavens and lick the clouds above will bring peace to a troubled soul. No more shall the temper-filled heart beat be heard. No more shall there be anymore hate, no more shall there be any works of the Devil. To prevent a fire, remove the fuel. If the fuel keeps flowing, remove the spark. If the spark is imminent, remove the hand that ignites it.

"I'm going to concentrate on whats important in life. I'm going to strive everyday to be a kind, generous and loving person. I'm going to keep death right here, so that anytime i even think about getting angry at you or anybody else, I'll see death, and I'll remember."
- Dian Frolov and Andrew Schneider, Northern Exposure, Do the right thing. 1992.

Hi Harmony, thanks for dropping in. 21 in the post is in relation to something personal. But if its age you're talking about... then maybe 20th is the magic number?
