    it's true, when you feel like you have absolutely nothing and no one, god's still there for you and that knowledge gives the greatest 'comfort'.

    Poem of the day, August 10,2007: One of my favorite authors, Robert Service comes through again. Pathos, comedy, or just plain fellow feeling, his poetry has it all. Poetry so timeless it could have been written this very hour for every one of us. (Report) Reply
