    To show you my soft, feminine side... :p

    Everyone Needs Someone


    People need people and friends need friends
    And we all need love for a full life depends
    Not on vast riches or great acclaim
    Not on success or on worldly fame

    But just in knowing that someone cares
    And holds us close in their thoughts and prayers
    For only the knowledge that we're understood
    Makes everyday living feel wonderfully good

    And we rob ourselves of life's greatest need
    When we lock up our hearts and fail to heed
    The outstreched hand reaching to find
    A kindred spirit whose heart and mind

    Are lonely and longing to somehow share
    Our joys and sorrows and to make us aware
    That life's completeness and richness depends
    On the things we share with our loved ones and friends

    It does appear she has quite a bit of influence over Onyx doesn't it

    Although this isn't a poem I think it is appropriate

    My Resignation

    To Whom It May Concern:

    I hereby officially tender my resignation as an adult.

    I have decided I would like to accept the responsibilities of a 6 year old again. I want to go to McDonald's and think that it's a four- star restaurant. I want to sail sticks across a fresh mud puddle and make ripples with rocks.

    I want to think M&Ms are better than money, because you can eat them. I want to play kick ball during recess and paint with watercolors in art. I want to lie under a big Oak tree and run a lemonade stand with my friends on a hot summers' day.

    I want to return to a time when life was simple...When all you knew were colors, addition tables and simple nursery rhymes, but that didn't bother you, because you didn't know what you didn't know and you didn't care. When all you knew was to be happy because you didn't know all the things that should make you worried and upset.

    I want to think that the world is fair. That everyone in it is honest and good. I want to believe that anything is possible.

    Somewhere in my youth... I matured and I learned too much. I learned of nuclear weapons, war, prejudice, starvation and abused children. I learned of lies, unhappy marriages, suffering, illness, pain and death. I learned of a world where men left their families to go and fight for our country, and returned only to end up living on the streets... begging for their next meal.

    I learned of a world where children knew how to kill... and did!! What happened to the time when we thought that everyone would live forever, because we didn't grasp the concept of death? When we thought the worst thing in the world was if someone took the jump rope from you or picked you last for kick ball? I want to be oblivious to the complexity of life and be overly excited by little things once again. I want to return to the days when reading was fun and music was clean; when television was used to report the news or for family entertainment and not to promote sex, violence and deceit.

    I remember being naive and thinking that everyone was happy because I was. I would walk on the beach and only think of the sand between my toes and the prettiest seashell I could find. I would spend my afternoons climbing trees and riding my bike. I didn't worry about time, bills or where I was going to find the money to fix my car. I used to wonder what I was going to do or be when I grew up, not worry about what I'll do if this doesn't work out.

    I want to live simple again.

    I don't want my day to consist of computer crashes, mountains of paperwork, depressing news, how to survive more days in the month than there is money in the bank, doctor bills, gossip, illness and loss of loved ones.

    I want to believe in the power of smiles, hugs, a kind word, truth, justice, peace, dreams, the imagination, mankind, and making angels in the snow.

    I want to be 6 again.
