"Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light."
- Matthew 11:28-30 -

"Most true happiness comes from one's inner life, from the disposition of the mind and soul. Admittedly, a good inner life is hard to achieve, especially in these trying times. It takes reflection and contemplation and self-discipline."
- W.L. Shirer -

2004

I could have gone to a wedding, kind of ironic the date

2003

go away this day
no say without pay
so may it turn to clay

2002

A slow, suffering type of day where you can feel the tears on the inside but never feel them on the surface. Where elation and celebration should be the order of the day, only isolation, fear and no communications with another who could or would dare to understand the complexity of my distorted mind.

2001

today was his birthday, I didn't forget, wished I could but yet the memory came to mind of the years passed and how we celebrated. Will the bitterness, the hurt, the betrayal ever leave me?

2000

Well it is his birthday, and I wonder if he knows or thought about the fact that maybe today I couldn't forget that fact, and I thought of him. I wonder what she bought him and if it was as good or better than the 20 I had bought him before.

1999

Sometimes I feel as though the emotions have left and there is nothing to me but a shell, a walking robot programmed to function, with no maintenance. No care or no Love. Love is what is missing, or maybe it's the romance, for with it the mind is sparked, and emotions evoked, bring forth a creativeness.

1998

Sweet Summer Nights
the owl is in flight
soaring high in the sky
wishing to never say good-bye
to the summers heat
refusing to lay down in defeat
Winter calls
and soon the great owl shall fall

1997

Life is an adventure in forgiveness.
