Feelings are deep and many and many colored-  They are part of me-  They

tie me to the eternal-  yet they make me unmistakably human.


To feel is to live-  to hide and repress is to die-  It hurts

to feel,  but it is better to hurt forever than to die not feeling at all

    One of my first efforts a long time ago. Written during a period of my life when there was a lot of pain.. Looking back it was surely a time I needed to experience to get to where I am today. I wasn’t happy about the pain then, but I’m grateful today it got me here.

    Did not think I would feel this pain this far along in life. Probably would not have been able to accept it earlier.
