    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

    If only everyone on the verge of suicide could read those words. We's probably settle alot of heartache. Great portrayal of something I have always felt but never been able to express correctly. (Report) Reply
