Dedicated to some kind people I know. I'm still working on being this way. Thanks Sandie for relating me to this poem.

life was on him,
he still refused to be a victim.
His attitude was grand,
not typical of a troubled man.
How could this be,
with all of his agony?

|Not me Sandie, this fits a few people I know. One of them actually told me this ending. One of them worked for me. One of the best people I ever knew.

I use to always think, "I'm going to try and be like this also." G|

|Hhhhhmmmmmm!...Are you talking about Grady the great? Heeeheee! Wonderful self-portrait, Grady!...and I will agree to this whole-heartedly!
The fact is -
rather to have the devil beat you, you beat them first.
Wonderful write Grady!
