  i wish life was easier, like when i was a kid. all kids do is play. they dont worry about tomorrow, or about money. they don't have to care about which church to go to, or what to believe in.

  i am faced with a tough decision. will i move away and start a new life to possibly better myself, or will i stay here where my life as i know it exists comfortably ?

i know which decision i will make, but i'm afraid.

Life was only easier when we were children because we were provided for. At least we lucky ones were.
  As we grow up, decisions are left to us. It is wise to remember, there is no such thing as failure, only results. From these results whether good or bad, we learn valuable lessons.
  You can't just sit still and hope someone will give you the right answers. Life waits for no one, and who knows just what great times you might be missing out on while you are fretting about "tomorrow."
  Write down on paper the pros and cons of moving. Then....lol....you decide. Good luck. Chris

Pros: Support, roof, clothing, food.
Cons: Parents.

The Cons win.

Unfortunately not all kids play, and many worry about tomorrow, some even worry about money.

Good luck in your decision making

Boy, I'm confused.  Are you going off by yourself?  Do you live at home?  I thought here, http://piptalk.com/pip/Forum6/HTML/001085.html#5 you were married with a child.  And yet you're a eminem fan...and do a lot of posting in teen.

Why is it, ~DC~, that I feel you're jerking, or attempting to jerk, several chains at once?

Please take this as the question it is, and not one that is meant to come across as attacking you, because that is not what I do.  However, when I see so many confusing comments, posts, etc., I get curious as to who you are really trying to portray?

travel is an education
meeting new people and cultures (be it in America or elsewhere) is an education, new job...education....new surroundings...exciting....move...challenging...used to be a nomad myself...and love to move...whatever awaits there for you is never failure...

But you did not answer the questions, DC.  That's all right, your prerogative...

Enjoy the day.

What decision will you make?

I've been thinking a lot about the risks that dreams hold.  A person could end up poor; a person could end up changing a part of the world; a person could feel that they've really lived.

If a dream is meant to be, God will give the strength to follow through on it; and the family involved will be blessed - and sometimes blessings aren't more money.

I'm rambling...sorry...my husband has a dream and we've been living it...and its good.

hmmm... well Sunshine i guess i can't really answer the question " Why do you feel?"

you tell me.

i am moving to a new city, going to a new church.
that is different than what im used to.

i am married, and my wife donna is with child.

i do like eminem, kinda like an inspiration to me. i think his word power is awesome.

and i post in teen because, well i dunno...
im only 22, so i guess i can relate more to teen experiences.

I have made several moves across the nation since age 18...so what I believe I am hearing, is that this is your first move as an adult, with the mother of your child...basically..."on your own" as the breadwinner...

a lot of new and different things coming at you...no wonder you may feel some confusion.  Very normal.   As my Mom or Dad would have said..."time to pull yourself up by your bootstraps" but that was in my time...

Thank you for expounding, DC...I was getting the feeling of flippancy, when actually it is anxiety speaking...

and that is perfectly normal.

As for posting in Teen...when adults are a good a good influence for them, that makes it all the better that it's your chosen venue for sharing...sort of like being a strong bridge from this life to their future...

quote:
"i am married"


If you are married and have a child, then why are you saying how you have a crush on a certain person in the teen forum? Why did you write 4 poems about her if your married? Remember these lines from your poems about her:

"who will feel
the warmest kiss
that's ever
touched her mouth."


or maybe these:

"should she be
my lover?
should she be
my friend?
should we start this new
relationship?
and what if it should
end?"


No offense, and don't take this personally, you know I love your poems and everything...but this just doesn't make sense to me.  Maybe you could clarify it? Thanks.

well alli, truth is, i am a hopeless romantic, and i can express that side of myself freely here at passions. i'm actually very shy in person, and would never really be so outgoing as i can be here.

most of my posting is just in fun, for entertainment, and is not related to reality(as are the ones you are refering to), hence the pen name, ~DreamChild~.
i hope my friends here can understand that.

I have a lot to say, being the crushee in all, but I am not going to say it. I'm going to leave this as it is and hope that it all works out for you. I probably will not grace the pages of the teen forum anymore. I'll still be around. I am just "sick" of the drama. Lets all grow up people.

Personally I take offense at the Teen post "flirts" on two fronts:

1. A married man has no business behaving single in any forum here and even less so in teen.

2. A married man ought to act married, period.

If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane, I'd walk right up to heaven and bring you home again.

opinions, opinions...

isn't this a place to express one's self freely?

though i am married, i am still a flirt, that's just me.

like it or not.

Well never let it be said I am shy to call a spade a spade there DC, and although it isn't my usual style, it will have to do as I respect the site, and its readers.  

Firstly, I don't believe a lot of the stuff you are "expressing freely" in this community.  I am not quite sure you didn't even start the whole idea of someone using your name to draw attention to yourself either, and that you are both people, but that is neither here nor there, or my issue.  

Secondly, I do know one thing for sure though, you have no right posting in Teen period!  If you are in any way hitting on our teens in here at age 22, I want it known that I for one am complaining about your membership, and would like it examined! Period!  You should be ashamed of yourself, the nerve, calling it your "romantic" side m'ass!  

I think there has been far too much drama in here myself lately, and enough is enough. This is a POETRY SITE not like the rest, and won't ever be!
