Who am I?
Am I defined by what is near in sight?
Am I defined by what I have done,
Or am I defined by what I could become?

Perhaps I'm of no use.
To him, or her, or I, nor you.
Or perhaps I'm too misunderstood to be defined,
And it is something like understanding that comes in time.

And if to the world I'm never shown,
Yet in my own light I've grown and grown,
And so I can know no happiness but my own--
The reason for my smile, to you, will forever be unknown.

I do not pray for the world to know my name.
For it and verse; the letters are the same.
And if a man should find his sorrow in what he reads,
I pray his pain my words to keep. 

Should his eyes rain on my page,
Better tears than storms of rage.
And if a man should find his sorrow in what he reads.
I pray his pain my words to keep.

And if to the world you're never shown,
Yet in your own light you've grown and grown,
And so you know no happiness but your own.
Let the reason for your smile, to you, only be known.

Big blundering beast
Poor fish have no chance whatsoever
Neither does the slowest runner in your group

A Child's Christmas

Oh wonder of light
How you shine
On this night
A star as bright
As can be
Above the tree
A child is free
Of worlds make belief
Where wishes
Come true
And no one feeling blue
Upon this magic night
Where stars shine bright
It's Christmas tonight
In a stable upon this morn
A baby child was born
Speak heavenly dreams
A child's Christmas
Above the tree

Takeing it all

                                WHO IS TO BLAME

                Life never the same, hope almost gone, whose to save me
                Trying to reach no hand stretched, I gave up, simply I was weak in a hole  I call home
                Although I never stood up, I stood in and all hope lost
                Fading slowly, memories running in my heart although the mind wonders off

                Trying to cover my shame I never knew what I was doing
                All was lost to the memory it might come back, it wont I learnt and so I did
               Well God never gave up on me is the hope I never revealed
                For long was the hope gone, abundance in grace shall I receive?

                 For what was not told was revealed and to what was told faded
                 Life was a lesson that all hoped to learn and just couldn’t deal with reality
                 Chances come and all are blind to see that all is there to it is faith
                 Three things in life when gone never come back and that Is the secret

                 Time, words, opportunity, all is the secret to what can make one or brake one
                 I was never told the secret to living life but all I found was dry, wounded hearts
                  Life spend with regrets is life lived not recognized by the mistakes made
                 Time wasted might not be regained but all I do is time what I do

                 Same as last they never did learn the weapon of life that could make them
                Hope was not lost but forgotten and unleashed to when great trials came 
                Do time in plea with God and all shall be discovered to make trials forgotten.       KAREN.F
