Are thought to be impossible by some
And by others, who have seen, Like me
My friend was digging for gold in Nicaragua
His company was large and the Press was there taking photographs
as his dump trucks ran in the valley below.
Some five years later, when he came home unsuccessful at finding Gold
we talked and he discussed the two 8X10 glossy's with me
I noted that he and the two other men in the photos, pointing to the valley below,
were in different positions, though all else appeared the same even the dump trucks running below
And then I saw embedded into the mountain a massive space ship
that had not moved in either of these photos
and it was as large as the mountain, itself.
"Vincent", said I. Oh My God it's a Space Ship"
He nodded with pursed lips and slid the photo to the side producing
the other 8X10 glossy
"Vincent, Oh My God, You have to call the Press"
"No, he said, that part of my life is over!"
"Vincent, are you crazy? Over? No one has this proof. UFO's
are all over television. People who have seen and
have no proof are begging to be believed
and you have the ONLY photos
of living proof. Please show them!"
He leaned over placed his hand on my shoulder
and I could tell some 15 years later that he was terribly afraid
whispering he said, "Look the negatives were confiscated."
"Vincent that doesn't matter, they can tell with modern technology
that these glossy's are authentic!"
"No my dear that part of my life is over!"
Vincent would say no more other than who confiscated
the negatives which I will not repeat.
Your contest brought these crystal clear photos back to my mind.
Photos of which only close friends and his family members have seen.
I often wonder with the passing of years if ever those photos
will be discovered and released. I had often thought of
going over to his house, taking them and making facts known,
though I know I would never have the nerve to do this.....
For what it's worth there are UFO's and the next time you
listen to people on television or anywhere try to convince
you. the doubting public......Just Know ..They are among us!
Sometimes a story cannot be told in 16 lines.....
