    I've been looking for love in all the wrong faces,
    Or places not usually seen unclothed,
    I should have been finding my soul a vacation,
    From its now unhappy home,
    Don't give me no lip,
    About life's great trip,
    (Sit back, relax, enjoy the ride)
    I've tried,
    To abide what life has supplied,
    All the ups and downs,
    My discomfort resounds,
    Like a thousand explosions ,
    Of silence,
    Strangely, I've put most reliance,
    In a love for people and things
    That hurt most,
    Struggling blindly to give up the ghost
    Of a will that's been fractured, crippled,
    Frustration, a ripple effect
    To the depths of my soul,
    Somebody, anybody, everybody
    SCREAM
    Please! Help me rediscover the needed strength
    To get myself back whole

    I'd just like to say hello to everyone here (This isn't my first post, but I changed my name from DigginThaShyne to The Tarheel Poet....not because I'm no longer diggin the shyne, cause I'm very much in awe of the Shyne still :) , but I had to represent NC)

    I hope you all enjoy....and if not, that's cool too :)

    $RICH$, Cindy, Street So'ja

    Thank you all for the wonderful replies full of wisdom, and much love. Through everything we go through, I guess the best thing to remember is that the best is yet to come.

    Hello Tarheel

    Heartfelt piece. I recall my soul needing a vacation. No condition is permanent. Put your faith in God.

    >I've been looking for love in all the wrong faces

    remember eddie murphy's impersonation of buckwheat singin on Saturday Night Live? this is what that reminded me of... "nookin puh nub in aw da wong paces...." LOL.... anyway, i'm diggin the word substitution at the end... makes ya think...

    >Don't give me no lip,
    >About life's great trip,
    >(Sit back, relax, enjoy the ride)
    >I've tried,
    >To abide what life has supplied,

    diggin the sporadic rhymin here... mucho nice indeed...

    >My discomfort resounds,
    >Like a thousand explosions ,
    >Of silence

    oxymoronic verses are always good....

    >Somebody, anybody, everybody
    >SCREAM

    got me thinkin "now throw ya hands in tha air... and wave em like ya jus don't care..." LOL...

    needless to say, i dug this deep... just thought you'd like to see sumthin other than the standard "this was really good..."

    peace...
