Beauty Is In The Eye Of The Beholder

A very interesting discussion took place this morning over at MothersFightingForOthers.com.

JWT HeadAfter a long string of comments, one commenter, kim.kim, said, “JWT you’re not a physically attractive person, I can tell by the way you write.” Well, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. So, here I am in all my glory.

I’ve been looking for an excuse to show you all something other than my eyes. Maybe this will get me a few more visits. I could use a few more visits. And besides, it would be nice to move her personal attacks off of a site designed to inspire Mothers to take action and onto a site where we can all bash each other with reckless abandon! 🙂

The Indecision of Youth

When will I become a man?
Will I feel it when I do?
Is the process taking place in me
as it’s taken place in you?
How long will indecision reign?
How long before I’ll know
what course my life will follow
and how far that I shall go?
Will youth give way to wisdom?
Will chance give way to plan?
Will I know that change has taken place
when I’ve become a man?

just the surface

the me i show
is just the surface
my confidence
my courage
the me below
hides on purpose
my doubt
my fear

if i let you know
let you inside
to look
to love
would you care to go
to take a ride
to feel
to heal
to help me grow
to bury pride
to live
to fly

the me i show
is just the surface
