    I have concluded that I dont need to prove myself to anyone in this world, I will decide what is right or wrong for me, it is not up to others to decide. You are your own authority. I agree that the past makes you who you are, but I have a different view on what that means to...

    I Made It!

    I unfolded, begin to stretch .... arms out wide .... I stand .... I shake and wipe the dust off of me. I inhale, giving thanks to the Heavens for my new birth of life. I made it! sigh........

    Battlefield!

    O Fortune, like the moon you are changeable, always waxing or waning; hateful life first oppresses and then soothes as fancy takes it; poverty and power it melts them like ice. Fate -- monstrous and empty, you whirling wheel, stand malevolent, well-being is vain and always fades...

    Reincarnation

    I am a firm believer in past lives and reincarnation so I do not think we ever really die. Yes our physical forms may perish but our spirit always reawakens in another body or another spiritual form.  So in essence we all rise from the ashes of our decayed physical...

    From The Ashes

    My right hand holds matches, my left holds my past, I hope the wind catches, and burns it down fast, I'm gonna step into the fire, with my failures and my shame, and wave good-bye to yesterday, as I dance among the flames,   so don't try to save me now, let the...
