A poem by Robert Mestre

Love is
Love that
Love would
Love to
Love if
Love could
Love love

Not everything needs a title

Love
So close
Yet so far
....
I need something really amazing to happen.
:'(

"A hundred days have made me older,
since the last time that I saw your pretty face...
A thousand lies have made me colder,
and I don't think I can look at this the same...
But all the miles that seperate,
disappear no when I'm
dreaming
of
Your Face.

I'm here with you, baby,
but you're still on my
lonely mind,
I think about you, baby,
and I dream about you
all the time
I'm here without you, baby,
but you're still with me in my dreams...
And tonight it's only you ane me..."

(I don't feel like writing the whole song. blah. BTW, its Here Without You / 3 Doors Down)

I hate writing long sentances. I like. It. When they. Are. Choppy.
"Let your love be like the misty rains; coming softly but flooding the river"
-A Malagasy Proverb

"He knows a hero when he sees one. Too few characters out there, flying around like that, saving old girls like me. And Lord knows, kids like Henry need a hero. Courageous, self-sacrificing people. Setting examples for all of us. Everybody loves a hero. People line up for them, cheer them, scream their names. And years later, they'll tell how they stood in the rain for hours just to get a glimpse of the one who taught them how to hold on a second longer. I believe there's a hero in all of us, that keeps us honest, gives us strength, makes us noble, and finally allows us to die with pride, even though sometimes we have to be steady, and give up the thing we want the most. Even our dreams."
-Spiderman 2

"Cultivate Peace"
-Backwater

Gandhi

First they ignore you,
Then they laugh at you,
Then they fight you,
Then you win.

You must be the change you wish to see in the world.
-Mahatma Gandhi

An eye for an eye can leave the whole world blind.

Birds

I love birds.

When thou seest an eagle, thou seest a portion of genius; lift up thy head!
-William Blake

If the birds could take us with them, we would see how small the humans are from way up there...

I realized that if I had to choose, I would rather have birds than airplanes.
-Charles Lindbergh

Birds sing after a storm. Why don't we?

"...But remember, it's a sin to kill a mockingbird..."
-Harper Lee, To Kill a Mochingbird

So serene and beautiful

"There'll be bluebirds over the white cliffs of Dover, tomorrow, you just wait and see."
-Nat Burton

Without birds there is no concept of freedom in the world.

"Lord, thank you for the blessings in this life - the ones we undertsand and the ones we take for granted. And thank you for the birds who teach us to be free."
-Backwater
