Why should he be tortured because of his desire to have all the things

And not be able to have them because they cost too much?

Not that he was going to let that small problem stop him from getting his fix

This safe, though…

Send (an acrostic poem)

Signals of her desire radiated outward at the speed of emotion.

Even as dense as he was, he had to sense something.

Nodding, he seemed ready to speak.  She stepped closer, hopeful.

Don’t you know it he ran away instead?  Next time she was going to try semaphore!

Pretty (a 100 word story)

Lincoln believed he was very confident in who he was, but still had this aching desire to be called pretty by someone.  Hell, anyone.  He was called many things, but never that magical word.

Finally, after a long time of searching everywhere, he finally heard the words, “You are pretty, Lincoln.”  It put such a huge smile on his face.

He wished he could have hugged the man in the mirror who said it, but instead he wrapped his arms around himself.  It might not be much, but it was a start.

He had to be the first to believe.

Balance (an acrostic poem)

Begin your journey with the blessing of desire

Always want to experience the adventure

Live in every moment along the way

And if something bad happens, remember the end goal

Never lose sight of that.  Get up, dust yourself off and continue

Can’t make it to the end?  Then find a new spot on the horizon and go

Equilibrium in all things, except in life experience.  There seize everything
