    Sometimes I sit and wonder
    If my life will ease
    If the load I carry will lighten
    When a simpler life won't be just a tease
    Will the tears that role down my face
    Take me to a happier place
    Where the frown on my lips
    Turns to complete bliss
    When happiness won't be just a wish
    My friends can't see my sorrow
    I mask it well
    Only my heart knows the sad stories I tell
    I know one day though it may not be soon
    My life won't be filled with dismay and gloom
    I'll keep moving and doing what I do
    Knowing that somehow, I will make it through
    God has made me exceptional in all ways
    Giving me the strength
    To make it through the hard days

    wow, PoeticallyJust, you are singin my life song here. This flow is tight, and I really really feel you. in fact, the poem I wrote below, "new growth," is about me reaching a peaceful place on all of this. I have faith for you too, my friend. May the winds of peace come up to greet you.
