The Horror You Inspire

The days changed like you wouldn't believe.
When he was here, the grass was green, the flowers were pink, & the night was so bright.
Life had sunshine & smiles, and all those things us pessimist's despise.
Home wasn't like it used to be, because a house was never home, & he was never really planted like the flowers that lead up to their house.
He was home, and anywhere they went, as long as they were together, they were home.
There is, in fact, no place like it.
After he died, everything suddenly lost taste, like he had taken it with him.
So, she had to become friendly with the darkness and all sorts of scum, like the sewer rats & the Venus fly traps that she thought sometimes talked to her.
She had become comfortably numb.
All the animals spoke highly of him, and they only really fear the Seventh Son, his offspring.
It wasn't quite prophecy, but his rage & evil were predicted not long ago; regardless, she ignored it for as long as she could, because ignorance is bliss, right?


1. Prologue/Author's Note

This book is a tribute to all those single parents trying to get through life with their kids by themselves,
For all the friends who died too soon, 
For all those high schoolers who have issues with their parents, 
The dreamers who got taken away too early and couldn't achieve what everyone knew they would have, 
For all those with tough jobs,
For all the college kids who are stressed to the max and are alone for the first time in their lives,
For the marriages that were torn apart by death, 
For the parents that have lost their children, and the children that have lost their parents,
For the islands out there who don't have any family, 
And the families out there that have an island that has strayed away but they still dearly miss, and
For the Veterans that have served our country and fought bravely in our wars that keep our country free. 
May we make all things great, using our hands and our hearts for needs greater than our own, and never doubt the imagination of others; our only goal being to leave a lasting impression on every broken heart and fill all empty hands.

"The horror you inspire has deceived you, and the pride of your heart, you who live in the clefts of the rock, who hold the height of the hill. Though you make your nest as high as the eagle's, I will bring you down from there, declares the Lord. Edom shall become a horror. Everyone who passes by it will be horrified and will cry because of all its disasters." -Jeremiah 49:16-17
