I've always wondered about the personalities of each punctuation. A period can be a deafening silence to an end or a matter-of-fact statement. A comma, so effortlessly put, may be construed as a pause or thought, as if taking a gulp of breath, and continuing on. The apostrophe seems like I'm someone else's. Not entirely belonging to myself, but nevertheless manifesting in theirs. But whatever I decide to use, the semi-colon always expresses my deepest thoughts; it helps me assert my independence, in contrast with all the modifiers in this world.
