When I heard the news of Terri Schiavo I thought about what it would be like to leave this earth....I wrote this in first person as though I were the one in controversy...

I am once again
within the realms of angels
as I hear their wings flutter
and choirs sing to me
when peace is my guide...

My longing to be with them
fills me with joy
for I...will no longer
be laying amongst lost clouds
with truths never spoken by my soul

I have no fear of death
for he knows I will be as one
and he leads me there
though others may not see
my true purpose from nothingness

I will once again be free
like eagles in flight
with no men's tools
to stop their wings
from ascension

I am ...I am...
As once told in the beginning
upon my birth...
Ashes to ashes, dust to dust
A truth never found
Until love sends us home....

outstanding write, gives one hope! so sad about terri schiavo; the whole thing sickens me! it also scares me...what if people want to do away with disabled people in this manner? "they're not perfect; let's do away with them..." exCUSE me?? we may be disabled, but we are people too!!!! it could happen...and it frightens me!

(((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in tx., karen lynn. :( >tears <

Powerful, thought provoking words.

But I guess I'm selfish...I don't think her parents are being selfish, I think her "loving" husband wants her dead to carry on his affair with another woman--isn't that BIGAMY? He's already married to Terri and should be with her, he took the vow "in sickness and in health."

The whole thing sickens me--it's tragic how this has divided a nation.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla. *tears*

these are the best words i've read about this also. i don't believe in maintaining life once the quality of life is gone ie the mind but i can also understand how hard it must be for her parents. i think people should make these choices for themselves early as possible to avoid these situations...but who does

"Until love sends us home...." these are the best words I've read concerning Terri and Michael. Good poem, good perspective. Write more. Henry
