OAN 1989


Leaving Heaven (first draft)


I know what i want,
I know what i need,
I see it everyday, the sweet place
that calls out for me...

Too long have I dreamed,
its time to leave,
and do something, what i seek...

I know where it lies,
Between the mountains, it shines;
I thank God, for giving me this gift;
But I ask God, for all the things He gave,
Why, He left courage out, , , ,

The courage to leave out the front door;
The power to say GOOD BYE to,
whom i have endured;
And who've given me something,
which is heaven for most;

Is it OK to leave heaven,
Is it OK, to break a few hearts,
to mend your own?

Weather
by Ambrose Bierce

Once I dipt into the future far as human eye could see,
And I saw the Chief Forecaster, dead as any one can be--
Dead and damned and shut in Hades as a liar from his birth,
