It took courage and selflessness to publicly post such a stirring rendition of inner conflicts and feelings. But that's what most poetry is...

amen, Pops. Not that the few, uneducated words I have can help, but I am not only proud of sharing, but I thankyou for sharing. It helps me as well, and I know it helps others. Thank you.

Entering the sanctuary of my mind may lead to perils of unknown magnitude.......... hold on and embrace the ride. Feel the tolls as we pass from existance into my sought domain of twisted reality. -negatv: 5/05-

If I changed anything I have done in my life I wouldn't be me. Personally, I kinda like me. I'm an asshole, but I'm my kind of asshole.

Friends are what help me guide myself through life. I just have to find the right direction first. -negatv- 10/06

this poem is amazing...its like everything i have thought and done but can't express right there written in front of me...i cried...

i have never gotten help, never wanted help..didn't think it worked...sometimes it is easier to think you are all alone or nobody cares.....for me it has been i guess

This is VERY powerful and direct. It's simply written for the most part, but the simplicity of the poem only adds to it, not take away.

wow. I love the bottom half of the poem the most. Its beautifully written... raw... I love it. :bow:

I'm very happy to hear that you got help and were helped. Thank you for sharing. I know that must have been very hard for you.
sticks and stones are hard on bones
aimed with angry art,
words can sting like all things
but it's silence that breaks the heart

Man I've missed a lot of good poetry since I've been gone...

Very well done, and kudos to you for sharing this... I can imagine that it was very hard, but you should be proud... You got help... you've survived... but you don't need me to tell you that...

Thank you very much for sharing, and I'm happy for you that you got help and are ok... :bow: :wink: :bow:
