Shannon L. Alder
“Our Cross

Our little circle hides in the mind,
It's difficult to miss but hard to find,
It goes unspoken but yet it speaks,
From backward years to forward weeks,
We can't forget but why even try,
Two of a kind doesn't know goodbye,
It's a silent question that God won't share,
A breeze we feel but seems unfair,
Distant, rare but only madness can see,
It's something deeper than any infinity,
Because we walk this parallel path up and down,
There is no circle to hold us circus clowns,
So let's give it a symbol and label it a loss,
We will remember it always as we carry our cross.”
Shannon L. Alder

The real mean of love now a days is "APPRECIATION" a word that should be use to describe the feeling that most people have, but is not powerful enough to get someone into bed!”
Jonathan Antonio Tom

Richelle E. Goodrich
