Dance like nobody is watching
Work like you don't need the money
Love like you've never been hurt!

"Only a man who knows what it is like to be defeated can reach down to the bottom of his soul and come up with the extra ounce of power it takes to win when the match is even."
- Muhammad Ali -

If in your search for happiness
while traveling day to day
If you should meet with heartache
or hurt along the way
If in your quest a friend you need
someone to share your pain
Remember me, I'm always here
A friend who will remain

"Words can't break a bone but they can break a heart"

remember a talk about spirits and souls
I know it now as I did not then
I gave my soul and you stole my spirit

2005

Dream what you want to dream;
go where you want to go;
be what you want to be,
because you have only one life
and one chance to do all the things
you want to do.

A sort of day where there is too much time to think
A sort of day where the hands are idle and the head is running full speed

2003

as many e-mails come and go, sometimes one strikes you as something you need to remember, something you need to understand and you need to learn by. below is a copy of such an e-mail

I love you not because of who you are, but because of who I am when I am with you. (for the first time in a long time I held in that moment of time the feeling that I was someone who was good, someone who was of value, someone who was)

No man or woman is worth your tears, and the one who is, won't make you cry. (I wonder if my crying is because it was worth it, or if it is my way of saying It wasn't what I think it was)

Just because someone doesn't love you the way you want them to, doesn't mean they don't love you with all they have. (I do believe this was the case, there just wasn't enough of him to have room for me in that heart)

A true friend is someone who reaches for your hand and touches your heart. (so true, so true, for my heart I believe he will always hold)

The worst way to miss someone is to be sitting right beside them knowing you can't have them. (there seems to be no greater pain than this, and yet it was something I always knew, something I accepted but a little was better than nothing at all)

Never frown, even when you are sad, because you never know who is falling in love with your smile. (if I could only learn how to smile once again)

To the world you may be one person, but to one person you may be the world. (will I ever be that one person)

Don't waste your time on a man/woman, who isn't willing to waste their time on you.

Maybe God wants us to meet a few wrong people before meeting the right one, so that when we finally meet the person, we will know how to be grateful. (maybe this is why I still cling to the memory, maybe the ones in the past made me so grateful for the one I still love, will always love and miss so badly)

Don't cry because it is over, smile because it happened. (the memories do bring smiles, and for that I know it's because it happened)

There's always going to be people that hurt you so what you have to do is keep on trusting and just be more careful about who you trust next time around. (In other words one has to believe and believe again until your no longer disappointed)

Make yourself a better person and know who you are before you try and know someone else and expect them to know you. (I feel that I do know who I am, I just wished others would figure out who they are and see what was so beautiful)

Don't try so hard, the best things come when you least expect them to. (this is my faith, I expect nothing so maybe something may happen that I never expect to happen, maybe someday someone will love me for me)

REMEMBER: WHATEVER HAPPENS, HAPPENS FOR A REASON.

I look inside an empty heart,
I look at the holes that have been patched
I look for the leaks
I look inside my empty heart

Praise the bridge that carried you over.

1999

Starlight, Star bright
I wish I may I wish I might
words from childhood flood the mind
wondering what I would wish for if I had the chance to be there again.

Warmth? Happiness? Love? Fulfillment? Freedom? so many things to wish upon, I think maybe that is why there are so many stars in the sky, one for every wish and dream we can ever possibly have in our entire lives.

A thought to Ponder

1998

I was so mad
I cussed, I screamed
and I yelled
they lied, they led me on,
they were false
Well I fixed them all

Rarely does my temper ever show, but on this day I'd had my fill of always getting walked on, I had reached the point where I just didn't care anymore. It was time for me to do the walking.

1997

An invasion of armies can be resisted, but not an idea whose time has come.
