~I Am~

I am dedicated and trustworthy.
I wonder if I'll make it home.
I hear voices whisper my name.
I see accidents about to happen.
I want control of my life.

I pretend that I am not afraid.
I feel hurt by my parent's choices.
I touch others in ways I'll never know.
I worry that people I love will die.
I cry because my family is a mess.
I am dedicated and trustworthy.

I understand that God doesn't give you things you can't handle.
I say love me and I'll love you back.
I dream of being successful; in relationships and career.
I try to push myself to achieve my goals.
I hope I find all that I am looking for.
I am dedicated and trustworthy.

 Some things cannot be explained by verses that rhyme,
They are not measured by the commitment of time.
Some emotions run too deep to be described by words,
Forgiveness and understanding-remain the most beautiful words ever heard.

Hey, There spitfire! Wonderfully done.
Challenge well met.

So glad to meet you.  I see so many things
before they happen - when I was younger
it scared me.  Now, I just take action
on those premonitions to help stop what
could be forthcoming.

warmly,
netswan
