Painful thoughts you sit and stew,
Broadening memories come from you.
Hate the way you torment me, pry my brain with more longing.
Silent peace at once forgotten, flying angels seem like a concept.
Twisting neurons firing greed, winding my brain to selfish need.
Walking with my head down low, know where I’ve gone and where I’ll go.
Convinced at once with thoughts of doom, reflected by the grey clouds gloom.
Turning pain within my speak, writhing anguish churns in me.
So much loss with cost unknown, too much absence for hope to grow.
Leave me run from bitter’s steed, I have to breathe my soul to ease.
- Thomas M. Watt

  1. morton schapiro is someone big and wise.

    he is a father a like figure but he has the courage and wisdom to sail through muddy waters to a safe harbor.

    keep up the excellence!


  2. there are always two sides of story,

    someone say: she is cold, mean, and ignore me and my family.

    I would say: she is caring, loving, and intelligent, she makes life easier to all when she let complex waters go under the bridge without stirring the waves, why shall everyone think of you?
    can you think of everyone?

    you have an option, you have your own space, take advantage of it, and do whatever you can to promote your wit, and your loved ones. but never attack ones who happen to choose not to be your close aliens, respect others because they have different values.

    bless you, enjoy your life, children, family, friends, and talents.

    I am not against you, but not agree yet choose to sail in my own pathway to reach my goals.
