    is there anyone left
    who won't let me down
    why is caring such a
    precious commodity
    can you really love someone
    your whole life long
    is it possible to truly
    connect with another person
    isn't disappointment something
    you're not supposed to be used to
    does anyone speak
    the same language
    why can people be so
    irritating to each other
    is there an explanation for
    the way those you like
    don't like you and the ones
    who want you don't appeal
    are we coming at this
    life thing all backwards
    or did it get tangled
    along the way
    did we lose our path
    to stumble slowly through
    littering the land with
    mistakes and has-beens
    why is everything
    so very hard
    I suppose if I knew these things
    I would be god

    And such important questions they are gempis, essential to our piece of mind. This piece seemed to flow straight from your mind to paper, effortlessly. I hope you find the answers soon, so that peace of mind will be yours.

    My sister, this was riveting
    and I'm not using the word lightly...

    My :heart: goes out to you...

    These were poignantly painful and absolutely soul-searching
    questions...

    Thank you soooooo much, family - from the bottom of my heart. I guess I can't hide anything from you. I've been pondering and feeling some pain lately. Your compassion and support means so much. Watz, $$RICH$$, 7th, jazzy and mzblk, thank you. :grouphug: :grouphug:
