    I want to start over....
    where the green grass grows fast...
    and I will come to peace with my past....

    i want to start over where i don't know a sole...
    Where I am my only hold...on life...
    And i can sour higher than an eagle...

    I have thought of desert land....
    Mountains and beach sand....
    Swamps and curvy rivers...
    I want to go where my soul quivers...
    Where I find peace in me...
    As i reach out to be all that i can be....
    And if i had no self identity...
    in the place i would find me....

    I want to start over....
    no worries of another...
    no past pain....
    I will endure the sunshine...
    I will withstand the rain...
    I want to go 3,000 miles away from home...
    A place where i know...no one I know....
    Is willing to roam...

    I want to be free of all my burdens...
    Forget all my hurtings...
    Those who have hurt me...
    Forgive me if i have hurt thee....

    I want to start over....
    where my past is just a memory....
    Thought of but not to fondly....
    I just want to put it all behind me...

    I have the urge to just up and leave....
    To just leave everything...
    And go out and live just for me...
    But i'm still searching...
    I continue urging myself to tread on...
    For i know it won't be long...
    and soon i will be gone....

    To that place where its only me.....
    I want to start over....

    it is what it is

    stand your ground

    don't let life get you down

    change some things

    but most of all

    keep your aspirations realistic

    and you'll be okay

    LOVED YOUR WORK ON THIS PIECE

    very deep

    You can

    start over 'today'.. Look up a book called 'The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People', by Stephen R. Covey- Go through it, then try implementing some of the principles in your life. See what happens. But you can start today. A quote:

    "I know of no more encouraging fact than the unquestionable ability of man/woman to elevate his/her life by conscious endevour" Henry David Thoreau

    JAH Blessings are forever.
