I am a man who observes the world.

I love the beauty of the physical world around me,
But I detest the ugliness and decay that man has wrought.

I am an optimist because I know redemption comes,
But I am a pessimist because I understand the nature of mankind.

The path is narrow and hard.
Yet I yearn for the peace it brings.

These are my chronicles;
Of sorrows, joys, pleasures, and hopes.
