"Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you; For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened."
- Matthew 7:7 -


Not feeling well, tired and just yuckie. guess maybe that is the way life sometimes go.


The story I do tell
of a silent bell
when a heart fell
I sweetest bidder I did sell
a soul given to a living hell
and the ending not well
when in silence we dwell


"He can do more for others who has done most with himself."
- S.D. Gordon -


if I could see the stars and the moon
would you see the same as I?

if I could wish a wish that could come true
would you wish the same as I?

if I could take tomorrow and hold it in my hand
would you form it the same as I?


where emptiness leaves me feeling alone, I know that maybe out there somewhere that there is an other who feels the same void, and that they think of me as I think of them


I'm like old wine. They don't bring me out very often, but I'm well preserved.

It is even harder for the average ape to believe that he has descended from man.

I'm so unfocused, things seem to mix, mingle then tangle inside my head then disappear, completely gone, forgotten or lost. I wonder if it is possible to put to many thoughts upon the mind that it overload like an electrical circuit and then blows, or pops the fuse. At times I feel as though I'm losing my mind, that I no longer know who, what, or why I am, nor do I know where, when or how I believe or feel. My mind is empty and I am filled with nothing. I wonder if this is a delusion, or if I really have no thoughts for once. A thought to ponder maybe?


He said he would love me thru the worse
and for the best
but it was not a truth

He said he would care for me when I was ill
as well as when I was well
but it was not the truth

He said he would be here forever
but forever meant not never
but it was not the truth


To love and be loved is to feel the sun from both sides.
