threaten to rain on my parade
and drown me in depression,
but I just laugh;
thunder and lightning
can't touch the place where I am
and the wind can blow all it wants to:
I ain't gonna change.
I can't be bothered
with just any old storm that wants to
happen along and destroy my mood:
I'm above all that.
So, go away, storm!
I want to enjoy the rainbow and see
the sun break through the clouds ...
You can't have me.
(c) 2005, Karla Dorman.

|After 4 days in the 90's supposed to get bad thunderstorms this afternoon. On edge now and trying not to think about it. Alone I am in house except for cat who will hide under the bed. Hope it does not amount to being as bad as they said it could be on the news. Like the photo and the poetry. This helps me fight my loneliness. It is uplifting as Jane says. Thanks you for sharing and have a nice day. Prayers needed and prayers go out to you too. God will keep you safe and sure.|

|Thnx Karla for this wonderful poem that has just given me more advice. You, Karen, Tami Ryan, Sheila G, and others have beent hre bringing this little girl out from behind her mommy's apron strings, and into full womanhood. A girl needs the advice of older women so she knows how to be a decent owman when she grows up. And because of all of the advice I have gotten, I am going to be a very decent woman, when I finally grow up. Thnx for sharing sis. May the Lord Jesus bless you, and those whom you love, and be with always, and at your side constantly. With much love inmy heart, stubborn to a fault, joy to the world, peace on earth, & ((((((((((MANY WONDERFUL SISTERLY HUGGGGSSSS)))))))))), your still sad and terrified little sister, Barbie
If I have to be this girl in me, Then I may as well be."
