    Will Would that I could compel you To do my

    will. Would that I could dispel the hurt That maims me still. Maybe then I could seize peace. But then I’d own a life With no challenge, no unknown, No chance for victory, No reason to atone. I’d be clutching to my breast That which if it is confessed, Is something all...

    Sometimes it takes sadness to know happiness,

    noise to appreciate silence and absence to value presence.

    I once heard these words in a movie

    and it stuck with me. I learned then that its easier to accept that mistakes do happen... that we learn from it, look back and call it experiences. ""This isn’t the time to make hard and fast decisions, this is the time to make mistakes. Take the wrong train and get stuck...

    I really want you out of my head,

    I want you in front of me, better yet in my bed. you've teased and tricked me long enough, to the point of insanity, yet something is stopping you from seeing the man I can be. your words promise me things you can not acknowledge, I see that now all you are is just someone I...

    There are people i can't save

    and things i can't change if they ask me for help i know i'm gonna be dropped. It's just apart of my life i help someone learn and understand but no ones willing to do the same for me. I thank the few who are, or try but with so many who'll just drop me it's hard.

    I'm still working on the marriage issue.

    It's not going so well. Today my husband told me that he basically has been using his mom and everything else has an excuse for his behavior and said the real reason is that "he's never loved me as a wife". I don't even know how to respond to that or what to think. I've given...

    There's lots of things I'd like to change,

    but realise that's impossible. I mean how to do change other people, making them more tolerant, open minded, less selfish... can't be done, right? What can be done is detaching detaching from any situation and looking at it as if you're separate from it...like from vantage...

    When my wonderful girl left me

    after almost 12 years, I was so hurt and shocked. Especially when I found out who she'd left me for. I had cancer when she left me. And I must admit that I had given up. When I left, I took our son with me. Not to hurt her, not for revenge, but because she had the girls, the...

    It is hard to accept change,

    to "let go" because we become attached to these things. We see them as our only source of happiness, or they give us security. Change is chaotic and sometimes painful and yet, it happens. So we're afraid. Thus, we hold tight to these "things", but these "things" in our life aren...
