I wrote this poem....

My tribute to 9/11 and the war... Haven't we had and been through enough?
Please read it and share if you like, I think it speaks for allot of us...

My Own Tribute
I was traveling the day the towers fell,
it was a day of nightmare, a living hell.

I was waiting for The Rosie O'Donnell show to come on
when the news channel broke in, said the towers was gone.

The news channel covered allot to be seen
I pinched myself, thought it was only a dream.

The bodies were carried out one by one
of families, friends, daughters and sons.

My heart goes out to all who were dear
When can we ever stop living in fear?

Freedom is something this Nation once had
Since Bush has been here, all has gone mad,

They control what we do, what we can protest,
This war needs to end, give it a rest.

Family and friends need our troops home,
There are obstacles here they can't do alone.

Bush has told us nothing but lies,
How many more soldiers are going to die?

They can't answer these questions for me,
It's all about money, power and greed.

To be completely honest, it's not Iraq I fear
It's loosing my loved ones from my very own pears.

My Blog Intro

Hey all, I am new to this but I started this blog to help others and myself with the average, everyday things that get us down or keep us from living the life we want to.. I hope, here on my blog we can share things, laugh together and maybe even shed a tear or two as we all move toward that life we KNOW we want.. So what do you say? You with me? Of course you are or you wouldn't be here.. Now I am a person that lets everything in life get to me, my problem or not, I let it control me to the point I am sick, can't sleep, over eat and dearly PAY for it later.. If my neighbor is hurting, I hurt.. If a family member is angry, I am angry.. I call that BEING A FOLLOWER.. I don't want to be a follower anymore, I want my life back, make my own choices and if someone is hurting, ok, I may console them but I don't have to HURT with them.. Finding a place to start is the hard part bloggers but the one thing that I found that helped was making a list.. Start with what you want on one side and list what's stopping you from getting it on the other.. Now I have NO PHD but I don't believe there is one for making choices for you anyway so were on our own here.. Everybody make your lists and check back in with me here tomorrow ok? Have a good evening bloggers.. I want to send out a special thank you to MY MAN David, I have posted his blog page link under my picks... A MUST SEE blog for all, he is AWSOME, very funny...

Peace, Hope and Harmony
