    I love this F.J - poignant, straightforward and telling. When frustration sets in, it's quite human to project our feelings to other people. I like how you said - find your strength - because the bottom line is if you don't own your problems you will always look to another for a solution. Well penned poem!

    Vicky thank you so much; it tends to send some off the wrong way but that only lets me know they do not agree...and that's okay, IF they are not making things worse for themselves and others. Because if they are I could care less if they did not like it ;)

    I like this. I like this a lot. It's a very harsh reminder, a very harsh truth. This came out of frustration & disappointment for our humanity. Bring this as a reading to the show in January.

    Thanks Drake; I'm glad you see the bottom line of this. So much frustration b/c of so much lost potential :(
