    I’m analyzing my lifestyle and how I live.
    Starting to think I got nothing to give.
    Now I’ve been down and even felt worthless.
    It always felt like no one else could relate to this.
    My silent screaming is mentally challenged by pride’s feenin’.
    My true expression is something that they’re barely seein’.
    Sometimes it seems they think they know me in and out.
    But I don’t think they know what being Virgil is all about.
    Really its partially my fault.
    Whenever they tried to come in, I’d tend to make them cease and halt.
    Every time I think I’ve changed,
    I find I’ve fooled myself, ‘cause everything remains the same.
    Been in denial for so many years.
    Finally started excepting that I am to blame
    I wanna show them the purity of my heart
    But I don’t even know where to start.
    There has to be a better way.
    A better day, a brighter day.
    ‘Cause the sky is gray.
    I’m hoping for a better way.

    Sometimes a change is so close you can almost taste it, but we still can't grasp it. I've been there, and well, in a lot of ways I'm still there. Be patient with yourself.

    If you got hope...there is hope!
    It's a "one" step at a time program...
    {step 1}...start with the person in the mirror. that person is always there no matter which way you look. Get to know that person, learn to love that one in front of you and everything you want or need out of life...can be produced by the person in the mirror...mirrors are 'reflexions'
    I like your scribe...

    I love the way you digged into your own soul
    Very introspective
    Very daring
    Naked even!

    This poem shows a maturity very few have
    The ability to look within
    Not only for the good, but for the not so good
    That needs to be worked on
    This is tyte to say the least
    Awesome to say the most!!!!!!!!!

    I'm on my way to read part two.

    Lovin this

    Peace and love
    TWISION
