Never shall I neglect those fire which used my faith forever.
Never shall I neglect that night time silence which will deprived myself, for all eternity, of the wish to
live. Never shall I forget these moments which will murdered my personal God and my heart and soul and turned my
dreams to dust particles. Never shall I ignore these things, regardless if I i am condemned to have as long as God
