Hey this is great! Thanks a bunch!



I was born myself, raised myself, and will continue to be myself. The world will just have to adjust.

I hate your socks. I'd like to burn them!

Wow.  You did a lot of research before you wrote this poem.  Now I can say Merry Christmas to anybody...if I can remember how to say it in their language.  Well done.

False gems may shine as brightly as the genuine article, but there are always those who can tell the difference.

When the veiling cloud has passed
Playful shadows dance
