The prince of darkness rose up from his sleep.
He unfurled his wings and stretched his dark limbs,
before swooping down on the world beneath
from his unlit pyre on the starless night!
The world was steeped in silence, ominous,
each of its dwellers safe inside the cave,
a fire at the entrance casting shadows
on the rocky wall that stood at the end
and the wiser minds wonder-struck by that,
spellbound by their own flimsy silhouettes!
“Look, how unsighted they are to surrender
to such a sight!” cried the prince in disgust,
so he unfurled his bony wings again
and went to work with his scythe on the staff!
What an exciting children’s book! I went along with this book on a great adventure filled with treasure and mystery and so much more. I think this book is a great story for any age. * I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review* 5/5
I don’t read a whole lot of these very romantic books. I am more of a supernatural girl! But I gave this book a try and I liked it more than I thought I would. The shifter element for me drew me in because of me loving anything supernatural. The book was interesting! * I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review* 4/5
I weighed myself this morning. I don’t know how many of you guys know this, but I struggle with a weight issue. I’ve been big all my life, and I continue to struggle against it everyday. It can be kind of disheartening to wake up every morning and see that your weight isn’t fluctuating, though you’re eating less and exercising your ass off.
A plateau is a horrible thing to hit in your weight loss goals, though they happen all the time if you have large amounts of weight to lose. I’m going to tell you, you can work through it. Half an hour a day walking, or some other form of physical activity outside your norm, can change your life. Hell, it can do more than change it, it can save it.
This past year, I’ve lost over 150 lbs, with only 200 more to go from my goal. Last year at this time, I would have problems even standing, let alone going for a walk. One day at a time, I’ve used my stubborness to get closer to my goal. And though I’ve plateaued right now, I know I’ll break through it as long as I keep on keeping on. It’s all about perseverance.
One day at a time, you conquer your demons. If you get in the habit of taking enough time out of your day to improve yourself, before you know it, you’ll be a greater person than you ever expected. A little bit at a time, it will add up to the greatest version of you.
