What if you were a someone
who needed a hug today
and what if you were a someone
who'd gone and lost their way?

What if you were a someone
in need of a friendly face
and what if you were a someone
crumpled and out of place?

What if you were a someone
on a rocky, uphill climb
and what if you were a someone
with no one to share your time?

What if you were a someone
desperate for a kind word
and what if you were a someone
speaking out, but never heard?

What if you were a someone
who's confidence had been shattered
and what if you were a someone
longing to know you mattered.

What if you were a someone
feeling ugly, worthless and small
and what if you were a someone
with no where to turn at all?

What if you were a someone
crying tears that wouldn't stop
and what if you were a someone
giving up and ready to drop?

What if you were a someone
full of sorrow, pain and despair
and what if you were a someone
yearning for someone to care?

But....

What if you're not that someone?
What if life's going your way?
Would you give yourself to someone else,
be the someone you'll need some day?

2006

Why are you here? Do you wonder about things in my life or do you come just to remind me of a haunting memory? Well I'm a live, I breathe, I eat, I sleep and I go through each day just as I did the last with emptiness and loniliness.

Only those who dare to fail greatly can achieve greatly.

2004

I prayed for tolerance today and I truly believed the lord blessed me with it. Sometimes it amazes me how simple words uttered can be given so freely and I believe thanks should be voiced for those little things.

2003

so much discontentment
no goals
no purposes
no use
no good
no one

2002

reminders in the sky
reminders in the water
reminders in the small things
reminders, where is my eraser

2001

When I see that smile
When I hear that laugh
When you leave
I still know your here
in my heart

2000

I fight the loneliness in my dreams
sleeping in restless slumber
hours upon hours
wasting the day so that tomorrow will come
and the circle can begin again.

1999

Can one live with no emotion, in a cold and isolated world, away from others but yet be a part, can feelings be left out and only dialog shared? The heart often betrays, which is sad. For there is no love to be had.

I know there are days when My thoughts are that of a raving lunatic, or so they seem, but they are a part of me, and make me who I am. Often there is no understanding within the words written, just the meaning implied is all.

So many question and ask, so many try to judge the hidden meaning, but few accept them as they are, this is the problem with this world, we judge but do not accept. Always looking for more when there is actually less.

1998

Life's crazy cycle continues to spin in circles
so much dissatisfaction and disappointments
disillusionment and discovery.

Spinning like some orbiting moon
just a small insignificant part of a larger whole
a speck in the view of reality's overall picture.

1997

Few things are harder to put up with than the annoyance of a good example.
- Mark Twain -
