Words of Wisdom

Being a leper all my life

I search for some truth

I seek to be cleansed

Spiritual, not a word

in my vocabulary

Never heard of the notion actually

Leprosy does not allow time for soul-searching

A social pariah, a scourge, a despicable bane

I crave to forsake

My skin flaking off in scales

like that  Serpent that led us

astray from our path

When Jesus came along

I was sick but now I am cleansed

I was forlorn but now I am hopeful

I wonder what has become of my mates?

Human ingratitude more

I am a graduate of the University of Mount Union. I work for myself as a housekeeper. My company is named Nicole's Superb Cleaning Services LLC. I was a psychology major and am hoping to cause pain and suffering to Peter W. Parker, the bane of my existence because reasons. I am still interested in English and theatre. Writing stories that defy the English language and troll Peter W. Parker is my passion. I used to draw comics, but I had a comic artist block, so now I troll Peter W. Parker with my stories. I also love animals. When I am not working hard on whatever project I happen to have my hands on, I am at home playing with my animals. I live with two cats named Princess Kissy and Princess Oreo. I also love to listen to all kinds of music, such as The Birthday Massacre, Emilie Autumn, The Cruxshadows, The Cranberries, Celldweller, Emperor, R.E.M., Future Funk Squad, Symphony X, Einherjer, Borknagar, and Nightwish. And I'm married to King Joebear. But don't tell the government. They suck the fun out of it.
