    We all been one sometime in life
    before adult hood wit hubby or wife
    we view ourselves with hopes
    and deep sweet dreams
    it starts mostly when we in our teens
    we see all the great inspirations
    and the history of our generation
    the lost or the past
    the hearts of love we cast
    we many not go the same path
    that granny or pa took
    but surely fine self in this hook
    and find instead our very own
    great congregation to journey
    to a life we may fall , trip, regain
    we all have different ideas
    that we claim but under GODS
    grace we place'd by faith inside
    our own visional views
    it all come back to hopes & dreams
    we see our life as a never ending
    and the force that makes us continue
    not to be pretending
    together or alone
    our young heart seem to roam
    we learn , as we grow
    holding hands with family & friendz
    but we may not know our final
    journey too where we may be
    but from hope it's great beauty
    our tender eyes see
    we write about our gentle heart
    feels and how our mind roam
    competing in all that comes
    as an TEEN
    these hopes & dreams
    can make u laugh
    some will make u scream
    pain will be hurt will come
    the shame but life to tame
    as an TEEN
    our dreams is high enough
    to keep us going and low
    enough to make us reach
    as an TEEN
    so dear all please hold my
    treasures , hopes & dreams
    as an TEEN :spin: :look: :spinn: :deal:

    as to our teens today and the way they live and say the hardship
    and the sweet ole memories as i look back at my self as a young teen
    thanks sistah for the look back

    Angel....yes as a teen we had to make choices that mold many of our
    tender life as we grow and today how teens are much distance from
    the inner generation of the family and how they live this was a long
    look back as a young man in stride what a walk down memory lane
    thankz sistah for the look back in time

    Yes, this makes us look back and think about what it was that we wanted, hoped for, dreamed of, as a teen. How different are these things now, how many of these hopes are the same? Very thought provoking piece.

    Your wordz spoke to me as always..I wish I could get to the sight more, but school, and all keeps me busy. The beauty is that I hope theeze hardships will manifest as food for thought on the menu, once I am able to ground myself....

    Thank You for the love you show.....One Love from the CHI
