Flavor of the day challenge - w/ Daily prizes

Hello fellow cardsmiths, we wanted to start a challenge this time around. Which this time will be about making cards that mechanically and flavor-wise suit the quoted flavor text.

Now on to how the contest will function, each day I will post a piece of flavor text the prior day that you must incorporate into your cards mechanics and themes the next day, without using that flavor text on your card. Then the best card wins a prize!

Prizes:
A) Each day's top card's smith will get the following...
- A follow from us.
- A favorite of your own choice.

Due date:
This challenge will last seven days (Until the end of August 17th), with each day having a new piece of flavor text posted the day prior in the evening so that you get the full day to work on it. This challenge is based around central time (US and Canada!) and each day ends at or after 8 PM depending when we're back online.

Rules:
1) Card must mechanically and flavor fully match the chosen flavor text of the day..
2) The card can't use the the chosen flavor text of the day.
3) You may make up to three cards per day.
4) Cards can be edited as long as the due date hasn't passed.
5) Cards can be switched out as long as the due date hasn't passed.
6) Cards must be made the day they're posted.
7) Make sure to credit the creator of the artwork on your cards.

    August 11th's flavor text is the following...

    "The tragedy of this world is that everyone is alone. For a life in the past cannot be shared with the present. So I did what I had never done in his presence, much less in his arms. I cried."

    Inspired by modnation675's card, Dealer of Tragedy.

    Not all of the flavor texts are gonna be grim though... most are just gonna be thought provoking!

    Alright, that's it for today's quote. We didn't suspect to get an entry since it began too late in the day.

    August 12th's flavor text is the following...

    "To see a World in a Grain of Sand
    And a Heaven in a Wild Flower
    Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand
    And Eternity in an hour"

    - William Blake

    For future cards, since I didn't clarify here. Please don't actually use the same flavor text.

    I'm gonna give you, the community, the option to vote for the flavor text of the 14th for August.

    Here are your options

    "I'm still broken.
    I took you in with arms wide open.
    My color fades to grey, I'm choking.
    But you'd know that wouldn't you!"

    "Tell me, why did you refuse to join me.
    Why god, why did I disappoint you.
    I only wanted to attain perfection.
    Who the hell do you think you're?"

    "'Cause we're all a bunch of animals,
    that never payed attention in school.
    So tell me all about your problems!
    I was killing before killing was cool.
    You're so cool, you're so cool."

    "I'm running through the alley.
    The voice I hear is far.
    Some whispers right behind me.
    But it's not what I want.
    I'm looking in your eyes.
    Now pray that someone dies."

    Reminder, to not actually put the flavor text in your card.
