Paradise completeOne step, two steps-- despite the dizzying height she crept to the edge --three steps, four steps-- then jumped.
The crumbling steps of Paradise Mental Institution reflected the loneliness of its deteriorating existence, its vacant windows staring angrily upon the outside world. These dismal qualities drew the gazes of the modern townsfolk and the visitation of various historians and vacationers.
But truly, underneath the dreary, faded grey walls, weed scourged courtyards and the long cobblestone paths, the lingering scent of injustice and suffering tinged the air. Paradise Mental Institution closed in 1964 due to poor funding but did it really?
Something that whispered in the quiet breeze sent a different message. The sinister air was thick with forgotten tears and silenced voices. How could it be, that the three thousand resident hospital suddenly closed in one day? Where did the patients go?
Perhaps this was why Carol Wilson stood before the abandoned monolith. Or, perhaps the
Dear AngelaDear Angela,
My Angel "A" you're at the hospital right now, and I'm at home freaking out.
Today your little baby boy is born....at 20 weeks he won't see the world for long.
I'm praying for you.
Hon, you know I'd be there if I could.....
Gosh, I just.... I'm-- so Sorry. I promised I wouldn't cry, because you didn't want me to, but I'm at home, so I'm bawling.

We Must BeIt takes one hand to touch another,
it takes one heart to care,
we must be skeletons, bleached and bare
For we won't help our brother.
It takes one hug to soothe a sore
It takes one mouth to speak
we must be mute and very weak
for we don't comfort anymore.
It takes one kiss to reassure
It takes one word to meet a stranger
we must be very selfish men
for we don't love each other.
It takes a moment to forgive
It takes so little to hate
we must be very angry people
for we have all made mistakes
It takes a child to make an adult
It takes a parent to nurture
we must be quite close-minded fools
to simply kill our future.
