A Window To My Soul



The eyes, it's said, are the windows to the soul But I once had my shades pulled down A mysterious individual difficult to figure Masqueraded around as a clown Always been known as a jester at heart But some say it's a cover, a facade To hide this feeling of insecurity inside Wouldn't allow my soul unclad Well that most certainly used to be true But this site has allowed me to be me Under cover of this protected environment It's allowed my true self to be free The truth will out it's always been said In my case it's proven to be so I owe my appreciation to this fabulous site And to Cathie, my wife, my soul A new found confidence after many years Not the person I started out to be Feeling of freedom expressing my thoughts Nonjudgemental, a feeling of free The eyes, it's said, are the windows to the soul No truer words have ever been spoken P-Soup has allowed me to always be me My long silence has now been broken © Jack Ellison 2013

    Happy to hear from you dear Mandy!!! As settled in as we can coz we are only renting for a year to check out the area. So we are leaving some boxes unopened in case we up and leave again. I'm too old for this running around! LOL Thanks for asking, dear Lady! Warm hugs, Jack xoxox

    Dragon says: If you ever get broken again... We've got some Gorilla Glue for your heart... We like being what holds your heart together... Tho we can't say we're much for the mind... When we come around... most peoples' minds tend to splinter a little as they quickly run away... Go Figure! Dragon! Put the Gorilla Glue Down! No! I don't need you chasing after the neighbors... That was an expression... They don't need gluing! ... LOL ... UGH! There he goes... Run you guys... Run! Dragon! Come back here!... At least my running shoes are on!
