    Who am I? I turned 18 a month ago

    and in my head, that is one big deal. In a year from now, I will be in college, away from my house, into a life that I have dreamt about since I was a child. I knew it as a 12 year old what I want to be when I grow up and I have stuck to my word. In a year, I will be living...

    As long as time passes by I will be.

    I am here again but one day I will forget. All that has happened and all that will happen. I am forever striving for inner peace, inner love, inner awareness, and I will always care. I could wish a thousand times and sometimes I do. I wish for humanity to be at peace, I wish we...

    Though I am long long past my best,

    my hair is gone just like the rest, I stand and look at those around and realise at last I’ve found, Its not the hairs upon my head that say that I’ve been good, instead Its is the ones that lay beside the acts I carried out with pride.
