ESSENCE

A LIGHT MAY DIE, BUT NEVER IN ESSENCE

FOR MEMORIES CONTINUE ON IN MINDS

AND MISTAKES MAY COME BACK WITH A VENGEANCE

BUT WILL LEAVE YOU STRONGER AND REDEFINED

THE FUTURE HAS A LOT OF HOPE AND DOUBT

THE TIME DESPITE HIT AND MISSES

SO GO THROUGH LIFE WITH UNBREAKABLE STRENGTH

This small scale one still had the same idea as the large one but just cut down. We created a 7x2 inch base with a height of 7 ¾ inches.
