Death

Only ends

The continuous search

For self.

It is not

The point at which

You find it.

We must

run  forward

towards death,

and

we will defeat it

by accepting it.

Real Friends — a Life More Full

Words to live by – really.

 

Reach out to others who are

“different”.

 

It makes your world

More full.

 

What are you doing to make that happen?

Out of Control – – – – – – Poem by OTL

Out of Control – – -In Control

I can not control

            What happened in the past.

It is the past.

            Choice of parents

            Career

            Abuse

            Loss

I can Control

Only the meaning I give them.

Making them “teachable” experiences

                        Or

                       Not.

From all that has happened,

            What have I learned

            What am I continuing to learn,

            To Live Today?

Poem by OTL
