so many things I know, yet so many things I do not, and it is those things that keeps me moving forward searching, looking for answers I feel will never be given, shared or spared for the benefit of my mental and emotional well being

why are you here?
what do you search for?
when will you leave me to be?
was it now or is it then?
who do you think to be?

when there is sunshine in your life everything is much brighter, much more worth living and savoring of the moment, it's sad to know that the sunshine for many is only a ball in the sky, not the view of everything that comes before the eye

Unanswered questions,
is that all there is?

The wire is stretched tightly
one little tug and it will snap
the tension must be released

but how?

Why don't I have a voice
Why am I not heard
Why am I?

I sit and wonder why if I have a bad day, why no one can understand. If I feel unloved why no one will see the reasons why. I sit alone so much, knowing it is safe, why can't anyone accept that part of me, why am I crowded, forced to believe as they do. When I know I'm an unique individual, who can only be me. Rather it be bad or good, I am still me. I feel with my heart. I bleed with the sorrow it contains, but yet no one cares, because with my pain there is no giving. Everyone wants something but few are willing to give in the honest nature of true giving, never expecting anything in return but the gift of giving to someone in need.

Shallow men believe in luck. Strong men believe in cause and effect.
