    I Met Myself On The Street Today

    Forget The Past

    No mountain is too steep, to bring you out of the heap. Just lay your cares on the ground, and soon after you will be found. Inside your head used to be a war, the tears of the past is no more. Now you can rejoice about life, and put down that sharp knife. Love the person you are...

    The Damaged Tree

    .......To see a world in a grain of sand, to hold what falls in your hand. To know the future, but be surprised it takes place as long ago planned. Like an artist takes his tools out to paint. A long lonely walk he takes. Down the path through the holler. Up a hill, pass the...
