If there is anything within I must be proud of in my lifetime, it is what I have said; what I have written, what I have done, what I believe, and what I have thought people about..
Why are we here? Same question that pops into mind every time we ponder life. What is the purpose of existence, who did create everthing that we see in today? Philosophers gave answers to this, religion did same, and even paganism all have differing ideas to this same budding question that is eluding many today.

' You Laughed and Laughed and Laughed
I told you I was in love,
But you laughed and
Laughed and laughed.
I gave you my love,
But you did not give me yours,
Instead, you kept mine, and
Gave yours to another.
You laughed at my song,
You laughed at my walk,
Then I danced my magic dance
to the rhythm of the talking
But you shut your eyes, and laughed
And laughed and laughed.
