"I am a student and a poet, Ismail. I believe in God. He dwells in us. It is upon Him that we rely for sustenance. He is the Great God. Life must be tough for you, Ismail, and reading what you are going through, you will be in my thoughts. You are a phoenix, you can rise from the ashes.

Your light will shine through."- Lorot Salem, on Ismail's Facebook Fanpage ( Written on 22/10/2011)
