Lee, that was one funny poem ...
... always knew you have it in you to smile ...
Ian's <Solitude> is magnificent. Always a pleasure to read his work.
sscw46, wow ... your kingdoms are really good. The emotions that you are portraying is vivid and strong. Both the sadness and the happiness that you are portraying is marvaelous. As for the metaphor, you are talking about your elder?
Xara ... I can only say that the poem is really close to my heart. There is no words that I can say to describe the silly smile on my face as I read it. Even now.
Somehow Alan's <Running> made me think of this.
: Every Thing will be fine
It's alright to feel lost
And it's fine to cry
Just don't let yourself hide inside
what you can share with people by your side
You don't need to have every answer
to every task at hand
the most important thing that matters
is that you did not gave up on your chance
This might sound a little weird
as it does seem like a strange advice
But if you think you need to breath again
you must first let your old self die
So just remember this, if nothing else
It's acceptable to make mistakes
It's true that most of us will
Take it as it comes
and learn from all its pain
Just don't dwell in them for too long
and everything thing will then be fine
For your new life has just began
Been having this narrating urge for some days now ...
... wonder if I can get more out of my mind this way ...
