Yes Denise this is very good, and it does not need to be any longer than it is. Happy endings should stay happy endings. I only wish that when I ran down to the canal in my life, someone like Justin would come and rescue me, and hold me in his strong arms. Oh well, I guess I'll just have to be content to be alone for the rest of my life, as the girl I was supposed to have been at birth. Maybe then I won't hurt anyone else. Thnx for sharing Denise. May the Lord Jesus bless you, and those whom you love, and be with you always, and at your side constantly. With much love in my heart, stubborn to a fault, joy to the world, peace on earth, & ((((((((((MANY WONDERFUL SISTERLY HUGGGGSSSS)))))))))), your little sad den sister, Barbie

Creating Choices (Poetry) - 6/2/2015 3:23:33 AM
...the spectrum of emotions is trully amazing in your poem...very powerful and complex writing...the absence of freedom to choose doesn't change the way how one thinks...stuck in a victim-mentality's the trouble...there are benefits in being "small"...it serves and protects the "victim's mind"...filled with excuses but...it's damaging to a person to hold on it...yet so hard to break free...build the strength and act...take full responsibility for own life..."creating choices"...cogito ergo sum...move to positive and empowered head-space...even if one chooses not to choose...still have made a choice...take a pick!...Thank you Denise, for sharing your thought-provoking writing.
Creating Choices (Poetry) - 6/1/2015 6:02:45 AM
Shows the importance of good parenting. So many are overprotective and over controlling, thinking they are doing their children good, but all they are doing is creating a young person with the inability to make good choices based on experience.
Creating Choices (Poetry) - 6/1/2015 4:35:44 AM
Ahhh . . . We both posted poems concerning "choices," this morning although we had different thoughts on the subject. Still . . . That was our choice . . .

...two people are each unique individuals...it helps when as couple they change' n grow together...mutual respect' n a lot of sensitivity's the key to a lasting..."life in bloom"...relationship...Thanks for sharing your verse.
Life in Bloom (Poetry) - 5/30/2015 4:26:50 PM
Seems like at times you have a whole bouquet of Bloom. Some will wilt some will stay fresh and beautiful. When they do stay, it is then that we will give our heart. What a wonderful poem expressing this philosophy. Thank you so much for sharing.

Goodbye My Friend (Poetry) - 9/22/2012 9:33:37 AM
When someone dies we want to honor them. You did this in a very real and touching poem. Some say, forget, don't think of the past. We try not to recall the suffering our loved ones endured, but sometimes we must acknowledge the pain that was so real to them. And then we can rest.

Jesus, My Lord (Poetry) - 6/12/2006 1:31:52 PM
I don't know how anyone could remain unmoved by the film 'Passion of the Christ' obviously it inspired you. At the time I saw it I wasn't sure I would want to watch it again, but I think we all need reminding of what He endured for us. As you point out 'words' don't always bring us face to face with the reality of his sacrifice, because we don't want to understand and face up to our responsibilty's or the consequences of our actions. <> < Jackie
My Last Goodbye (Poetry) - 10/12/2005 4:50:42 PM
Wow...I have to read that again.
This took me right back to caring for my Grandmother after a series of strokes...she held on for months. She was so strong... well, or afraid to move on. She was the center of our family. I miss her so much, thank you for this, it is a gift. Now I'm crying!!!
( this is damn good.)
Brightest Blessings, Shell

All Alone (Poetry) - 2/26/2005 1:51:01 AM
Denise I like this poem. It reminds me of me, when I was alone and had no one to share my life with, because you see Denise, I am a male-to-female transsexual. I lived my life in shame, and when my mother caught me wearing my friend's dresses, she would yell and scream that that was wrong. I had no one. Then she sent me to an institution, and I still had no one. When they let me go home for good when I was 18, I still ha no one, and my mother continued to yell. Now that she's gone and my sisters refuse to share their lives with me as a family, I still have no one. But now I am on the road to where I belong; in the world of women, that I was born to be. May the Lord be with you always, and at your side constantly. With much love, peace, & (((HUGS))), your dear friend and sister in Christ our Lord,

Denise, I also saw Passion of the Christ and it was awesome. I knew that Jesus had suffered and died for me but I didn't know how deep was His pain and torture. I hope you keep Him in your heart, always Denise. Allow Him to walk beside you. Humans can fail you...but Jesus never will.

My Last Goodbye (Poetry) - 9/21/2003 4:11:09 PM
Grippingly sad and sometimes the only thing we can do and others can do for us is smiply be there. Eyes really are windows into the soul. This proves it. Fantastic emotions displayed.
All Alone (Poetry) - 9/21/2003 4:08:24 PM
I happens just like this in a moment does it not! It happened that way for me when driving one time. I had taken that road a million times. One night I looked up at the stars. I have never seen poetry like this that expresses this actual process that we go through as humans. Brilliant work!
After the Crash (Poetry) - 9/21/2003 4:05:18 PM
This produced MASSIVE images in my head. Made my heart ache. EXCELLENT work! And now we shall appreciate life a little more after this one.
Doves of a Feather (Poetry) - 9/8/2003 1:43:54 AM
