I am a writer with an extremely active imagination. I love learning answers to questions and what makes everything and everyone tick. I am a "Unique case, medically" if nothing else. I am flawed in my extreme aversion to failure (even when "success" isn't good for me,) but have come a long way in ditching the perfectionist mindset. I like people whose default setting toward others is compassion, an open mind, and honesty

One thought on “Where I Could Be”
Dear Miss Sickybeat Extraordinaire, Another true and personal poem from you. Forgive me for being so intrepid as to suggest 2 small changes. See poem below with parenthesis ( ) around the 2 suggestions:
The girl inside is aching
She wants to see Shania,
Live for the first time in two years,
Alas! A greater calling has stricken (no period)
A purpose past myself.
And though I am not so naive
As to believe she will know me
As anything more, or less,
Than a dancing speck in the distance,
But, I do believe she can appreciate (delete But)
the reason I chose better law school grades
Over a night of pure joy.
But, why do I have to pay, to learn
And serve my country on the bench?
