    Poem Commentary

    Sometimes, this is the only place I feel at home. Where all that I am comes together in one place because I can bare all of myself here. I lost a very dear friend nearly a year ago, and I miss the peace I felt just being in her presence. Being here feels like much the same to me. So, if you haven't heard it from me before, in pm's or in the chats, here it is... I am so very grateful for this site, you are all and each and every one of you and this place... my forever friends.


    To know my place

    I look at my employer, and applaud her accomplishments.

    She has accomplished what I could not. 

    But I see that she lacks in certain areas of wisdom.

    I will continue with conducting my assigned tasks with integrity.

    I look at my eldest sister, and want to applaud her for standing up for herself.

    She has taken steps forward, but faces a major step backwards.

    I will continue to be a light in her life to the best of my ability.

    I look at my younger sister, and want to applaud her for taking steps to find peace in her life.

    I will continue to unabashedly have joy in my life, in order to be the light in hers.

    My children, both so different, yet so alike.

    I will continue to feed on their successes and praise them for their worth not yet known. 

    They are my manna and I will feed them.

    They are my legacy and I will stand tall in front of them.

    I will rest in peace with my God tonight, for all these things are now known.

    When power leads man towards arrogance, poetry reminds him of his limitations. When power narrows the area of man's concern, poetry reminds him of the richness and diversity of existence. When power corrupts, poetry cleanses.

    John F. Kennedy (1917-1963) Thirty-fifth President of the USA
