dreams of the moonlight over you
shining bright and smiling downward
seeing and knowing the truth
knowing the heart

something I got that I guess I need to keep reminding myself of or at least ponder the thought behind it.

When broken dreams cross my path, it helps me to know that it takes broken soil to grow a flower, broken clouds to bring rain, and broken grain to make bread.

1999

had to stop and count my blessings just now. I realized I had been neglecting them. Thinking of the sorrow and the emptiness within myself, failing to observe what was around me. One must look both inside and out to come to grips with who they are as a person, they must never forget the blessings bestowed upon them each day, even at the darkest hour their will be some small miracle, you just must open your eyes to see, your brain to find, and your heart to feel.

My Blessings, as they are real to me. Wonderful strangers who are friends, even if they are here for only a day a week or a month they are a blessing for they help us carry our burdens with less effort. Family, no matter how estranged you may be, they are still a part of oneself. Beauty, how many times today did I ignore the beauty that surrounded me, awash in such a dark depression. The birds upon the wire, a rabbit in the field, a sky of perfect blue, clouds as fluffy as cotton.

When I have so much why do I feel so blue?

More thoughts to Ponder

1998

The dreams never come true
I struggle to see the end
looking for that smile that I see
searching for that happy heart
seeking the dream
or the answers

always wanting

Enquire not what boils in another's pot.
