A year ago today
I took back my life
Thanks to all the prayers
of my family, my wife

Feeling ever stronger
as I stand before you now
Knowing that that I have control
That, through God, I am allowed

Today I celebrate a freedom
That most will never know
A kind of liberation
that gave back to me control

The control to choose
to live life day to day
Knowing you're just behind me
never to go away

To be continued....

  This one is pretty much self explanatory
  so I'll just say Thank you for reading  


 All my love,
Jeffrey

I lie awake in a world filled with dreams,
but dreams can be so real when you don't know you're asleep

 Life is like a painting,
That in an art gallery is left hanging,
Though many come just to look at it,
A very few actually come to enjoy it.

"Take nothing but pictures. Leave nothing but footprints. Kill nothing but time".

Baltimore Grotto

"Will you accuse me as I hide Behind these layers of disguise And the mirrors of my own happiness.I've loved the freedom of being inside
Need a new start and a different time
Something grows in the space between me
And it's twisting and changing this fragile body" -Nicky Wire
