will I ever find stability within my mind
between anger, hurt and hatred

The Ides of March

Kind of a changing of the tide
where the seas go out but return again

but yet repeating in a different form

Mountains? or Valleys?

Winter refuses to loosen it's grip
But soon Spring will win the battle
and the cold will lose it's grip

Thoughts of my Destiny
where I am going
and where I have been.

Thoughts of the Knowledge I have gained
Errors of yesterday
can't be tomorrow's mistakes

You can no more win a war than you can win an earthquake.
