    Thank you. I like what I have read.
    Am not so close to being dead
    As a non 85 to fill a form
    And look to read you yet again.
    So, thank you.

    WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOWWWWWWWWWWW! ! ! ! ! ! !

    You are amazing. Can't even begin to describe your most awesome ability.
    You need to put together a book that we can all purchase.

Best Poem of Jeffrey SpahrSummers

Courage

It takes courage to admit defeat
to lay the weapons down
to declare oneself unarmed
before anyone else gets hurt
it takes courage to succumb
to ones fear to overcome it
to surrender to the frankness
of the unknown you know don't
want to be held prisoner exactly
perhaps someone will just kill me
then it won't really matter anymore

Read the full of Courage

Forgiveness

(for traci)

is a gift we can only
give to ourselves
it cannot be coaxed
or demanded
or expected
never borrowed
it knows no guilt
it knows all things
