In my own world I try to seek comfort, hiding from the reality that is there, seeking peace within my turbulent soul, is it no wonder I can not find it?

1998

Looking deeply into my being
so much passion and life
strangled, suffocated, hidden
I'm the mystery that surrounds me
the image of what they have made
but inside I'm so special
uniquely myself
No one can duplicate what's there
I have the grit and the determination
that suppression cannot reduce or diminish
for I am Special
uniquely myself
My mind is my greatest treasure
for it gives me many avenues to follow
it allows me the pleasure and the joy of living
strengthens me, makes me strong
no one shall defeat me
or knock me down

1997

You've got to take the bitter with the sour.
