Well, some say...

You must know pain to know pleasure
You must know taste to know bland
You must know loss to know treasure
You must know sea to know land

You must know patience to lose it
You must know faith to not believe
You must know trust to abuse it
You must know strain to relieve

You must know noise to know silence
You must know stain to be pure
You must know calm to know violence
You must know doubt to be sure

You must know light to know darkness
You must know ease to know strife
You must know style to know starkness
You must know death to know life

You must know strength to know weakness
You must know wealth to know poverty
You must know fancy for bleakness
You must know slavery to be free

You must know peace to know war
You must know hate to have love
You must know love to know God, for
That is what He is, from above.

Just a thought about
"what some say".

Hey guys!!! I know I've been gone from Passions for a while but I'm really glad I found this place, so I might be hanging out here more often... Don't ask me where this piece came from, I just typed it off the top of my head and the tips of my claws, but...hope you like it, even if it doesn't make much sense to me Great to see you guys again!!

(And yes I have read a lot of the poems posted here, I think they're great but right now I have to go help my family with something, it's a long story--I'll explain later!)


Though my body be
Human, my heart and soul be
That of a dragon.

Watching the poets
Passions' guardian dragon
Moves with the rhymes' flow.

Spyro!
Missed you when you were away. Hope you stay! Stop by the Pub too huh?
Hope everything works out with your family.

Well that's true I know. Strawberry shake=yummy plain rice cake=cardboard LOL

And make us loose the good we oft might win
By fearing to attempt.

I don't know. It does seem a lil lonely at times. Even with the 4,000 + members.
That's why you should stay.

Wow nicely done here Spyro!
A wonderful read!!!



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

I'm in love with my shadow
I admire it daily
