Faith answered.
And lo, no one was there."

you know sometimes when you can help and you do and it feels good, but on those days when you can't offer the help you wished you could it makes you feel bad, even though it was never expected only needed.

How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives.

I got a tooth ache, thank God I have teeth to hurt me.

the Eastbound train just left the station
to travel the rail towards a new destination
forever a memory, lost in the dreams of someone else's mind

2002

it has been such a long week
feeling somewhat better today
but still so awful tired.

2001

sometimes I wonder why God brought me into the picture
sometimes I think I know

2000

thoughts are lost

1999

In silence we grieve
for no one shall know
of how our hearts meld
or where the wind blows

In Silence we sit
for a secret we must keep
of how our loneliness we defeat
so that some day we may reap

1998

A bright clear day
I wished my thoughts were as clear as the crystalline sky.

I think of so much
My thoughts were of words and how they play on our emotions.

Happy.. what words convey one's happiness
Sad.. can any words truly express a soul crushing sadness

Anger.. how can it be shown and to what degree
Loneliness.. can one word tell of the emptiness

Grief.. can words speak the silence of tears
Fear.. is it possible to express the fears hidden within, in a word or two

Passion.. what word can relay the passions in our souls
Serenity.. will a word adequately describe the sense of inner peace

Emptiness.. tell me the words to fill my mind, to grace my thoughts, to grant me a fulfillment beyond the ritual.

Health consists of having the same diseases as one's neighbors.
