Life can be a Masquerade
Living in the sunlight
Or living in the shade
The mask you wear
And a script well played
Makes all the difference
When we make the grade
You see me as the man you think I am
But your eyes fall short of the truth
Cast no judgement upon me
Unless you have shared my youth
This masquerade we call our life
Is an echo of our dreams
Life has joy and life has strife
Nothings as it seems
There is no joy without some sorrow
No today without tomorrow
If you think you have life down
You'll be buried in the ground

Life is a roller coaster for many downs in life, but somehow, somewhere,

there comes this tiny little ounce of hope that comes from deeeeeep within, and pulls us

back up when we are down.....that strength is instilled within us I do believe, at birth.

We just have to know how to use it, where to find it, and we must remember how

we gained that strenght....God blessed us all with it.

Great expressive write.

Love & many hugs to you dear,

Fletch, yeah, you are right, I've been down, I know what down is all about, but I am bouncing back, I'm learning alot of things, and life is also about learning, without learning, we don't have the chance to evolve or change, so learning is what I have right now to make sure I go forward instead of moving back, this is a great way of learning, you've put an excellent perspective on that, I believe in your words..great write, chin up, we still care about you..

So true Fletch life can be filled with ups and downs and you know what its always others who bring you to this place of darkness...Much love to you my friend and hugs for the boy who has grown into a fine man and learned to forgive and find faith....

Love Angelxxx
