I want the pain to go away. After all that I have spent on this silly tooth it should not be hurting the way it is at present, guess I'll take some pain pills and see if I can sleep until it's time to go to work tomorrow. I am hoping that it is just throbbing because of all the work that was done on it Wednesday, but I'm thinking that it shouldn't be hurting this bad two days later, but I may be wrong, I'm not known for being right to often in the things that affect my life it seems.

1999

Sometimes we wander within the mists
looking for things that are not there
believing that something exists that doesn't
overlooking what is
and forgetting what we know
ignoring our instinct
looking for more
Many times the mists are not a demon
but a treasure of what we fail to see
they make us look within
search until we find the answer
yes the mists are a hidden blessing in disguise

1998

Running, Laughing, at peace with the day
The warmth of the sun, the coolness of the breeze
The simplicity of being
Thanking God for allowing all that I'm seeing

Upon my knees I fall
Whispered prayers of thanks
My arms reached heaven bound
Praise the Lord I have been found

1997

If an idiot were to tell you the same story every day for a year, you would end by believing it.
