Ok, my membership expired 01/22/08 and I'm not in the position to renew it yet. Sorry I've been distant but a lot of things have happened lately. Some good and some very bad. The good news is that I've got a new job and start Monday at Northrop Grumman. I can't talk about the bad yet but I'm really trying to work through it. As usual, I wrote a poem. lol I don't expect you to like it but it definitely sheds some light on how I'm feeling. That which doesn't kill me, makes me stronger...I hope. I Surrender Chaos and turmoil define life Love exists in finite measures Happiness is just an illusion Hate threatens to rule all life Violence lurks in every corner Praying on the innocent Destroying everything in its wake But life continues in its frailty Threatening to collapse at any moment We crawl along the path alone Praying for peace and understanding Searching for resolution that may never come Surrendering everything we were Surrendering everything we are Surrendering everything we may become This is the price we all must pay I surrender...

Thank you for sharing your poem. It describes how I feel when things are not going great in my life, too. As a matter of fact, that is what I say too, when I am going through things, "What doesn't kill me, makes me stronger"....(My boyfriend actually hates it when I say that). And best wishes to you in your new job.

I really like the poem. One thing about the hard times is they really inspire our creativity. I felt your feelings.

HEY MEL ~!!! Great Poem -- it does show the pain of life, we all have gone through those horrible tough times and when we came out the other side of the tunnel it resulted in a change for the better. A change that made us stronger for our future. Congratulations on the new job !!!!! This will be a blip one day in the distance past. You're change, will last you forever, for the better too !!!! Yeah, surrender to the change HUGS, Nat
