No pardon prayed in silent days

"Yet now despair itself is mild,
Even as the winds and waters are;
I could lie down like a tired child,
And weep away the life of care
Which I have born and yet must bear,
Till death like sleep might steal on me,
And I might feel in the warm air
My cheek grow cold, and hear the sea
Breathe o’er my dying brain its last monotony.”
My boss, D-blow.
I 
don’t ever need 
to prove myself to you

Happy 63rd Birthday to Actor Mark Hamill
