About Countess of Monte Cristo

"You must stay drunk on writing so reality cannot destroy you." - Ray Bradbury.

"Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be,
For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance,
My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years,
Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll.
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul."

- "Invictus" by William Ernest Henley

Thank you to everyone who takes time to read my writings. If my words do
happen to touch your hearts, then i will have accomplished my goal.

Peace out, W.

    For i've known much about love already...
