I've read some very powerful and moving stuff here. I want to add this one but I'm not sure it will make sense to anyone but me.

Please Wake Up!

please wake up, I need you now
you went to sleep so long ago
please wake up, we have to try
i want to laugh, i want to cry
this life we have could be so great
if you'd just wake up and join my fight
when we're happy nobody knows
when we're sad it never shows
i hid you to protect us both
for that i'm sorry, it made us worse
so love me now cuz i love you
we'll face the world strong and true
its not your fault that we were hurt
but a sick sick man, who can not learn
that means nothing to you or me
just forget and we'll be free
lets live life, the good and bad
lets be happy, lets be sad
it may be hard from time to time
but it will work if we both try
if you'll help we'll do it together
heal from pain enjoy the pleasure
your forgiveness is my goal
for who's a man without his soul?

Please Wake Up!

Brian that could be a poem for all of us. A person divided cannot heal.

I can so relate to this poem now.

I'm sorry for what you've been through but I'm glad you're here. There's a great group of folks and a lot of wisdom at this site.

I wish I could say something more encouraging, but I'm not ina hapy place right now. Just know that I can't wait to see what more you'll contribute here and You deserve the support you'll get here.

Peace and love, brother. No strings attached and nothing needed inreturn.

WOW Brian,

That was powerful. Absolutely wonderful.
just forget and we'll be free
Forget we cannot. Understanding our feelings and its affects and thus being able to control our actions/reactions is our freedom.

Thank you so much for the kind remarks and warm welcome.

Bill, I know I'll never be able to forget but sometimes I want to so bad. Thanks for the advice, learning to understand seems so hard.....but the shor time I've spent here I can see that its possible and that gives me hope.
