    Beautiful and proud of it. No one can ever take away what we will not allow to be taken. favorite lines "I wasn’t dark enough to be among your people so me you try to disown But that call isn’t yours to make; I haven’t given you that throne!" fabulous

    Thank you for feeling me on this one Karen; I'm afraid I'm a bit iron-willed when it comes to certain things. This happens to be one ;)

    Such confidence is rare. I am impressed with your attitude and ability to tone out how others view you. I love: "Let me clarify so you misunderstand nothing..." Very clever word play!

    "You asked me the other day, my friend, who I am, I replied: I am you in another body! Yes, it is true Look how much the same we are, No matter what the color, the creed, the race, the status" From my poem: COME MY BROTHER. My dear F.J. Thomas, You have all the wonderful ingredients the Good LORD intended you to have in order to be a perfect human being! HE knows much better than any mortal! Your beautiful poem touched a sensitive chord in my heart! YOU ARE GREAT AS YOU ARE! Thank You!
