    ****Excerpts taken from Dionne Warwicks "(Theme From) Valley of the Dolls. This is MY LIFE before seeking direction and eternal salvation from God.


    To myself...

    Gotta get off,
    gonna get, have to get off
    this ride....


    I look in the mirror...
    can not recognize, can't recognize, I
    don't even recognize myself anymore.
    Have to get, gotta get, must get a hold of my pride...

    When did this, Where did this,
    How did this get started?
    Somewhere along the way I lost my
    sense of security....
    Somewhere miles back I lost every drop of
    my innocence and purity...

    My identity discarded and I can't seem
    to find it,
    When will I know, where will I,
    How will I think of my name?

    When did I stop feeling sure, feeling safe,
    and start wondering why
    ...
    thinking why........

    The world passes me by in a blur and
    still i'm lost...so helplessly lost...
    When could someone, how could someone,
    why couldn't someone warn me of this fate?
    Is this a dream, where is there, and what is here?
    What's behind the sky, why do we cry?

    No answers, just silent nods and blank,
    pity filled stares. I'm feeling so adrift,
    feeling so astray.
    Gotta get off, gonna get off this merry-go-round.
    Gotta get off, gonna get, I need to get on
    where I'm stable and sound.
    I stare up at the sky and still no solutions
    or illumination.
    When did I get, where did I, why am I
    lost as a lamb?
    I settle on a park bench, and ask;
    When will I know, where will I, how will I
    learn who I am?


    Oh, God!...the answers have to
    come somehow.
    I'll continue to wait on that park bench...
    Is this a dream? Am I here? Where are you?
    I'll just continue to wait and sit...
    Tell me, when will I know, how will I know,
    when will I know why?

    Yes, I remember this song well, beautiful melody, haunting lyrics. Your words add to the the sadness, weighing heavily with those pleading questions. Just keep them flowing poet.

    A lifestyle before the entrance of God.
    Feeling alone with no identiy, needing answers
    to help you get by in this life only to
    find yourself still lost, with no name...nothing.
    Life is no longer what you though it was....
    and all of this before you make that supreme
    sacrifice and give it all to God.
    Then comes the rebirth!

    You must give all things to HIM, Poet. We simply cannot do it alone. This piece hurt my heart but I found it rebounding again because you are on a great journey. Peace and blessings!
