A magnet for abuse In all their forms Never was sure Where I was supposed to fit in Visions of brighter future The strength to face the present Courage to step through the past Counting my blessings Remembering wrongs never undone Wishing upon that star Dreams never achieved Never truly understanding Life's greatest mysteries Why am I here, what do I do Continue on the path I'm headed Or change direction Peace is achievable Life begins when you believe in yourself.

Dear Shannon, From beginning to end a captivating Write. Superbly done. It saddens me to see the last POEM You wrote was last year April. I pray YOU and YOURS are Healthy and High in the Spirit. So many of the POETS that Welcomed me to the Soup are no longer around. If YOU can please drop me a note on YOUR well being LOVE YOU ALWAYS and FOREVER YOUR Eternal Liege...Harry
