They call me a survivor
I hate that term
It makes me think
Of tangeled bodies
Pulled from a crash
Hanging on to
A small thread of life
If managing to live
Scarred forever
Because of
Their plight

I choose to think
Of myself
In
More nobler terms
No matter
How severe
My injuries are
I choose
Not to play
The
Victim's part
But
Stand
With spear
Held high
The
Victor!

excellent declaration of strength septsong!!
stay strong and inspired...
take care, janet marie

 I love you
Is all that you can't say-
Years gone by and still...
Words don't come easily
Like I love you, I love you...
But you can say baby...
Baby can I hold you tonight
Maybe if I told you the right words
At the right time you'd be mine...
