Don't Be Sad
My dear sweet girl, you will never know how loved you are. You are so very precious to me. I would die for you time and time again. I try to cheer you up when you're sad. I love your smile, how it curves at the ends. I love your eyes, how they shine in the light. I love your personality, how you never fail to make me laugh and feel loved. We've been through so much together, fifteen good years of failures and triumphs. I've learned so much from you and I want to learn more. You're the one I trust with my life and any secrets I may have. I will always be there waiting for your call and rush to the sound of the sweet music you create. I will help aid you when you're sick or in pain. I will always be there for you, whether in body or in spirit. Why? It's quite simple really. There are only few I love as much as I love you.
The LightTwo boys cloaked in darkness sat beside the road. They were friends, brothers one could say. One day The Light came to the two brothers and both boys believed or so the older of the two did. When he accepted the light he was cloaked in shadow no more, he had become a new creation! Amazed he turned to his junior, "Look brother! I'm not cloaked in darkness or pain! I am new-" The older brother stopped to see his that his younger was fighting against the transformation. The older walked over to the younger shocked at what was happening. He put a hand on his brother's shoulder, "Brother why didn't you change?"The Light4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
"What do you mean?" Asked the younger puzzled by what his elder was asking, "I have accepted The Light just like you."
"Yes I know that, but why are you still cloaked in darkness? Surely you want to see?" His elder said curious to know why his junior was resisting the change.
"I see fine brother, though you don't look the same, why is that?" the junior asked.
"I've accepted the
Trying So HardThere was once a time I walked with God and did not feel his warm embraceTrying So Hard4 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
A time I walked and could not see the wonder of his Grace
I believed and waited, forever it seemed
Nothing happened, no light beamed
But when I stopped trying to see God,
See the wonders of his love
And let HIM come in and help me.
I soon found him saying, "I'm right next to thee.
I've been here a while, and been knocking at your door forever,
But you'd been trying so hard I figured you knew how better!"
Better than me how to work my Grace,
Better than me how it looked, my face!
But now you've come at last hither
Come and eat, let's have dinner!

but whats that to me?
If that's all there is to it,
You're no different, you see
That's a symbol you wear, not proof of your heart
Prove that by actions, its a good place to start
A candle cant shine if it hides undercover
It's a dark and cold world if it cant be discovered
So hold it up high, keep it in sight
So others can find a comforting light
What good is the truth, if it cannot be known?
What good is this love, if we leave them alone?
Reach out to the girl who's feeling unloved
Tell her she's precious to the One up above
Reach out to the boy who's dying inside
Tell the news that his Savior's alive
And still there's the ones
who search with a thirst
Who've achieved the world's "best"
But are feeling the worst
We seem to forget
He died for them too
And no-matter the past
His love is still true
I'm speaking to you, but I'm talking to me,
Just a girl in this world, with much more to be
Yeah, there's a cross 'round my neck,
But what's that to you?
Political Prisoner - GiD Ch. 1"LET ME OUT!" I screamed, kicking at the lid of the trunk, hoping that if my captors didn't listen, someone else on the road would hear me. "HELP! SOMEONE LET ME OUT!" I had been screaming for long enough that my voice was hoarse and my legs and arms were sore from kicking and pounding at the lid of the trunk, but I wasn't sure exactly how long I had been locked in the moving car.Political Prisoner - GiD Ch. 14 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
I had been grabbed on my way home from school and thrown in here before I had a chance to even ask questions, and now I had no idea where I was being taken. It was hot in the trunk, and I had already taken off the blazer from my private school, rolled up the sleeves of my white button down and loosened my tie. "HELP! HELP! LET ME OUT!" My screams grew louder as the car came to a stop. I held my breath, stopping my attempt to kick the trunk open and repositioned myself, hoping to be able to jump out and run the second that the trunk opened.
"No one's coming for you, Jason." I heard a voice and a second later,

Andrew sucked in a quiet gasp when the loud voice shouted from behind him. This couldn't be good.
Around him, the crowded marketplace in New York City seemed to part from him, the people stepping away as if he had the plague.
"Drop the bread!" The voice ordered.
Andrew immediately let the small loaf he had in his hands drop to the wet pavement. No point keeping it, it wasn't edible after being on the ground anyway.
"Turn around and keep your hands where I can see them!"
Andrew slowly turned around, revealing a blue coated police officer standing only a few paces away from him.
The officer shined a flashlight's beam of light straight into Andrew's bright blue eyes, through his greasy brown hair. "How did you pay for that bread, kid?"
The crowd around him was completely silent, some stepped further away from him, trying to continue on with their daily tasks while other people stayed and watched the possible confrontation.
Calming his nerves, Andrew sucked in a deep
