When I was growing up, my Mother told me that family was more important than any one relationship.

Mom told me that a family’s love is deeper than any friendship. Mom told me that friends may come
and go, but family will always be there for you.

My brother was my closest friend. My brother is the one I ran to for advice. He was my mentor. I felt
comfortable talking to him about anything. He was always kind and forgiving. I admired him because
everyone loved him.

My mother did not choose one child over the other. Mother treated us the same way. Mother
supported us by telling us to be our best. Mother said that she wanted the best for her kids. My parents
cared for their children. They wanted our dreams to be realistic. The encouraged us to try harder so we
could be good at our profession. They turned to God, when we were lost and weak.

We were raised in the church. We went to church five days per week. We had church choir and my
religious faith required for us to go to mass and Sunday school. On Sunday, after church, church music
was played all day. We would go through the house singing church songs, while doing our chores. At
night, we would get on our knees as a family, and read excerpts for the Bible. We would figure out how
much those excerpts meant in our lives. Before bed, we would say our prayers to thank God for being
present in our lives.

As a teenager my life began to change, the day I became a young adult. It was then I wanted to see if I
could make it on my own. I made a sacrifice to alter my life from the things that did not matter. It was
then I began to understand who I was with the wisdom. I refused to let away with the irrational
episodes. I wanted to be more confident by discovering my own inner-self.

My mother had a lot of patience in me. She wanted me to explain what I failed to understand. She felt
that I was slipping out of reality. She was afraid of losing me. I

had a lot of free time to search within myself to connect with what I believed to me was enough. I was
hooked on a dream.

If I could look deeper into what it meant to be free from connections. I wanted to look until I discovered
who I really was. I had a new attitude about how my life was going to be lived. I had a vision that was
curious of what it meant to be me. I knew I existed. I wanted my voice heard. I learned my existence
was broader than I dared to dream and it is from this dream I found purpose.

If we discover our existence, we will find that, our greatness is an invariable difference of how we exist.
We contribute our life to how well we define our existence to adversity.

I have a place in this world in which I exist. I make choices that define my character in which I exist. If I
turn away, my vision will obscure to limitations of thinking and behaving freely.

Education was always challenging me to try harder. There were people always better at it than I was. I
focused on learning. I found that education was inviting. Quitting was not an option. It was then I
discovered my vocation. It was then I was motivated to understand how to solve difficult problems. I
found that I could communicate by association. I could learn from others dreams how to dream

I became a professional student. Education became my passion to understanding who I was. I had
possessed a hunger to learn. I stopped blaming others for my failure. I decided I was going to make a
difference in my life. Education became my motivation to become my fate. It was then that I discovered
that the unknown or the dark is where I found hope.

Hope becomes imagination in who you perceive to become. When making choices, you have to re-
evaluate yourself. You must determine your place in society. You must be ready to make sacrifices that
will alternate who you are and what you become.

I made good and bad choices in my life. Some of the choices became greater implications of
encouragement that brought tears to my eyes. Loss became an endless torture that mattered most. My
flaws are the imperfections I face that are beautiful challenges in life that make me a better person as
whole. I often find myself trudging in the wind, only to find myself back where I started.

I invested my life on the simplicity of being who I am. I was always mindful of my own actions. I
struggled with retreating what is on my mind. As I move forward, I find myself retreating backwards
compensating lost time. Sometimes we grow old, but still inhibit the child within us. I challenge life by
trying new things, hoping to find solutions to understand differences I have become. I made up my mind
to try.

I discovered that I was blinded about the things I failed to understand. I found a need to understand
things that I could not identify with. I had found the countenance in my demeanor. I discovered the
dignity in reliability of respect. There is significance in relativity. I can become an adverse to the faculties
of judgement. I learn from watching others react. I was in the presence of living history.

One cannot fear living. When we fear living we become separate from existence. Being frightened is
living in denial. With denial there is no hope. When we learn to overcome fear we are equal. It takes
courage to admit and question a condition that is wrong. Courage becomes free will to guidance and

There is nothing to fear but fear itself. I come from a place on existence. I live free willed. I was taught to
take advantage of the moment, to be eager and willing to make sacrifices on my own. I am affluent with
my ability to take challenges. I was

bullied. They always pick on the lonely and smart kids in school. It hurts. I cried, shouted and had
thoughts of quitting, until I decided that my happiness mattered most. It was my dad who showed me
the value of existence is the answer to survival. All great things live in the pursuit of happiness. The
greatest inspiration is born from depravation.

I remember picking fresh fruit from grandmother garden. Taking the laundry from the clothes line and
folding the clothes. Shedding the corn. Snapping the beans. Canning the fruit. How beautiful the cotton
was when it was in season. I recall how the country outdoors looked in spring when everything was in
bloom. I thought how peaceful nature is. I had a lot to be thankful for.

I found happiness with the simplicity of life. Being able to communicate is a method of expression.
When one holds back emotions they can feel and not speak, is a bitter empty feeling frozen in time and
space. When you are able to express love, hurt, pain and sadness, you are showing an expression in a
way others can identify with. Your conversation about life begins to unfold by showing others how you

It would take the community and the church to promote hope in the eyes of the children to making their dreams to become successful a reality. Mom wanted me to ride on my instincts. The drop-out rate was high. you won’t learn how to cope with others. you must like who you are. Finding the inner-strength will determine how he progresses. You will find the answers too many questions as they develop before you. When I read. The only thing standing between a man and his dream is his will to succeed. You can do anything if you put your mind towards getting it done. I agonize with the thought of turning away from things I am afraid of. My mother encouraged me to go out and try new things. gardeners and teacher. I have a learning disability. You must take fear head on to learn if it was worth the fight. I negate the thought that my voice does not matter. The only factor standing between you and your dream is mind control that you can do it. I hear a voice reminding me that I must live beyond death by fulfilling life as I know it to be. I have the passion for making a difference in the world. It does not matter if you come in first place. We all wore the same uniforms. Being yourself is the best person you can be. I was sitting in the seat of confusion and defeat for losing a loved one hurts more than having to return to an empty home absent from his father’s presence. Personal experience is how you view your character and how you identify with others values. How you justify reason will enable you to complete the process of uncertainty. I will fail. I felt that if I tried hard in school. I am terrified with the unforbidden. In order to be accepted. I love to read books and watch movies. so learning is a challenge for me. a nurse or made. Women were the same hue and all had the same dream of going to college. I begin to associate with images of history. You must learn to be twice as good and twice as best. The biggest challenge in life is overcoming fear. Young boys had a fear of going to prison. When you learn to identify with others. The average person either was a teacher. I feel insightful with the ability to create meaningful relationships. Until you challenge failure. I have found my place when I can identify with others. Girls got pregnant before completing high school. but I got up. I dare to be different. I can associate the similarities of our cultures and question the difference. One must learn to question what he does not understand by finding solutions to his problems. I sat down in gloom dreaded with the sadness of having my child taken from me. The men were garbage people. When I read. Learning to overcome failure will teach you how to tolerate it. It takes a village to raise a child. what matters is if you pass the finish line at all. I feel connected with others by impression in how I relate to others. I also found that if I fail to understand the lesson. my effort will help me to succeed. A man’s ability to achieve is in his head. Dare to be different is a method of expression. I lived in a segregated community.feel and it is when you begin to express this feelings you leave an impression on others to remember you by. Only education would be the key to give these kids the skills to work a good wage to raise their family. My biggest fear was failing. I fell down. I had only imagined what it would be like to . I can try my hardest to learn and not understand what I read. I learn to explore cultural biases outside my culture. you become familiar with their literature and their way of thinking. Not being able to imagine would make me complacent in society. Dad wanted me to be myself.

instead it becomes a stepping stone to help others. My journey began with the cross stones of broken allies that defined my presence. The moments we shared I reflected upon. or the Christmas tree or he cheered me up while in doubt. I would want to share this valuable lesson of the price of life is more valuable than life itself. I was selfish never thanking Dad enough. I have searched many miles before I sleep before I breathe again.hold my child and tell him I loved him. An American understands the price of having freedom. The memories will not go away. The gift he gave of love was special. or fly a kite or how to swim were meaningful. It is through my existence that I could find my way. without entry. An American knows the history of our culture and this nation. It is when motivation became the reason for me wanting to learn so that one day I could understand the world through each discipline. I was not prepared to lose him. It was the day I stepped foot on college campus that I overcame the obstacles of defeat with the determination of courage. An American believes in its history’s character in its place in the world. I have been heart-broken more than once. I was willing to sacrifice my life to help others who lost their lives before me. I fear that he would know how much he was loved. All that matters is that I am thankful for the times we shared positive memories remain that I value most. I thought if I listened to him and talk to him more. I learned there is no measurement for love. I hungered for the type of love he possessed. I was nice to him. I thought if I had been there for him things would be different. . Harvest love for what it is. I was in a situation that altered my life that needed hope. An American understands its struggle in wars and in the nation has changed and developed. I stood idle because my Dad was outside facing the cold. I thought if I could have treated him differently. The people you do know understand the value of experiences you have shared. Dad always provided for his family that his children took for granted. His memory remains in my heart and I am thankful of the lessons taught me. Dad loved all his children. I wanted to teach my child the lessons I was taught. Always be nice to someone. because you never know what they are going through hard times. I thought if I could have been nicer to him. I felt the snug that hardens death unto a cloud of smoke that nearly escapes without notice. As one opportunity closes another door of possibility opens. you have to pick yourself up and move on. Expect the unexpected from people you do not know. What does it mean to be an American? An American is an immigrant that understands the value of having the freedom. Dad was never bitter. It was the day I graduated that I earned the right to say I had received an education and the degree that accompanies it. Every positive thought became a tragedy of what I became with the thoughts that I could not go on. I lost my brother and when he died I felt cold. He showed me how to love and respect the lessons taught in life because of the strides my father made for me made me proud to have him as my Dad. I plea sobbing at the point of no return. taken his actions for granted. I had the idea that I could help my child reach his dreams to see him graduate from college. The ice long ago melted and turned into water used to quench my thirst. The times he taught me to ride a bike. Love is a balance beam of life. The ability to love is a gift that takes time to grow. Even in doubt or discouragement. I was the victim of not wanting to let go of what I so rightly deserved. I opened my heart to trust. to see him marry and raise his own son as his ancestors did before him. I always was there to listen. It was what was expected of a father to do. I was afraid of being a mother would transform my child from a boy into a man. I recall the times he brought home a birthday cake.

I learned that culture is relevant in society in how we cultivate our lives. When I come to work with a good attitude and go beyond duty to get the job done. but her voice I remember well. I am communicating love. I have lupus. I savor the memory of the last time we spoke. skinning the meat off a deer to eat. She talked about how hard times were to be raised on a farm and her father would leave them to walk home. It was then I defined my place in the world. . In a small community we were all alike. When I reach out to someone and tell them good things. By caring for my body appearance. I used college as my way of learning to write about my culture. She talked about her first job as a maid and how she was treated and decided to become a house mom. I am communicating love. We both had heart problems. She talked about the days she walked many miles to get to school. and of spirits through the radio. Lupus attacked my heart. The activities that we shared taught me valuable lessons on how to relate to things I did not understand. She talked about how she would help out at the church and raised her family in the church. I used my culture as a reference to study history of culture. She spoke of the devil’s box. What does it mean to be me? I discovered what it means to be you. Times had changed. I could never lead life without love. My feelings were shattered when lupus warned me that I needed to change my diet. but if I learn how to balance the weight I can carry it well. By contacting my love ones. I felt the pain. I understood American culture with the types of foods we eat. It is from having relationships with these different cultures that I learned to respect others. I learned I could not separate something I desired with something I needed to do to survive. A load too hard to carry. I made a commitment to recover. As I began to study. the difference in how we dress. where I stand in society.I have a monkey on my back. I am communicating love. When I tell my parents that I love them every day before I leave the house. I grew up in a small school and small segregated community with enough room to grow. chopping the heads of chickens as they ran. I began to question and compare notes of reference. Lupus is a virus that can attack the organs harden and stop the organs from functioning. We would eat ice cream with our ankles swollen like it did not matter. How she had to prepare food herself. through a text. the type of customs we believe in. I first heard of the decease when the doctor saw the dark lesions on my skin. I could have died. It was not until I became an adult that I saw there is a lot more than what I knew. She watched how history had been different from what she had grown familiar with. exercise or I won’t live. how she traveled through horse and buggy wagons that took three hours to get to town. She talked about how she raised six kids and loved her children. I wanted to understand so I could understand who I am. Grandma had told many stories from her life and family. I learned how to communicate love. She talked about her struggle in her culture and how much times had changed. stealing chicken eggs from their nest. The hurt and despair I was going through with the decease became the mirror image of defining who I am. I am communicating love. the mannerisms in which we behave. Her chair is still empty. When I went to college I was going to learn what it means to be different. I learned I am the mirror image of you. I am communicating love. I had not slept. How can one know their history without knowing who they are? One must learn to search the meaning of their background in how it relates to their own lives. The time someone through something at her while walking and screamed bad words to her.

Angry that no one spoke to her. She would fry chicken in a skillet with seasonings that would make your mouth water. with what is important to have love ones who are nice and care that are there for her and nothing else done or said really matters. Avoid all the bad things that surround you. He can give back in his community by doing community service. There is nothing to mourn over. in good or bad health. Every morning she woke up disturbed about something in her life. The way man succeeds is to manage their difficulties. Do something for you that will bring back into your life how you felt before your experience of loss and regret. You will see yourself in how others perceive you to be. When you are comforted with your own indifference you will understand the imposition made you deny who you are and where you came from. Notice how green the yards are. Complain about the things that disturbed her. . young or old. blink. Go and smell the roses. For that moment allowed you to understand how difficult it must be to be in that position. There are so many personal attributes in a person’s life that is far greater than some insult someone said out of envy and hatred. It was through Mamma conversations that we learned how to cook and it is from her loss we felt loved. When you open your eyes. She could endure her life with rage and anger and fail to understand how great it is to be alive. He can join an organization and attribute his life to caring for others. He can give back to the community by helping others achieve their dreams. She would prepare a meal for twenty people to eat. Mom was the best cook. He can demonstrate love to his family caring for his family’s needs. Mamma would nod her head. The special gathering for Christmas and Easter were a special treat. She would yell for no reason. Resentful that people do not treat her right.You can learn a lot from others by having their company. ignorant or intelligent. Hate that no one cared to understand her feelings. As she got old. Fill your life with things that make you happy. and you will find eternal peace. He can do everything to do what is expected of him and not be remembered for his good deeds but be remembered for how kind he was to someone in need. but the kids? Her children would prepare the meals and Mamma would sit at the kitchen table to taste the food. Feel frustrated that she was unhappy. She would boil greens with a turkey leg or ham hock to season it. He can go to work every day and do a good job helping others in need. Beauty is skin deep. she was not able to cook. He can stay connected with his hopes and his dreams. hand-picked from the garden with flavor that would make you slap your mamma it was good to eat. Who was to keep the family tradition. He can merit himself by being nice and kind to others. He can practice being nice to everyone he knows. She prepared her meals with love. Look at the beautiful flowers in the flower garden are blooming because it is spring. A man can pay all his bills. Go outside and listen to the birds chirp. He can go to church every Sunday. That she had lost touch with reality. celebrate life by making yourself happy. To care for one health is the greatest gift of life. Have conversations with herself engrossed with lies of denial. He can give money to charity. Life is too short to be upset all the time. that does not have enough salt in the vegetables or that meat is not done enough or you have to throw that bread out its texture is too dry or the potato salad needs an apple. You might find yourself in the same positions that you judged someone else to be. Love is something self-taught. People care for what is inside. now. How far you go in life depends on how you relate to others whether. Cry that life is not treating her right.

We sold browning cookies to the community. but I graduated from college. My parents pointed out to me that I am challenged. I suffered from a fatal car accident that totaled me car. We prayed together. supported one another. but a good fighter who had overcome a lot of obstacles in life. I have come to understand that I will always be shy. I am a manic depressive. Until one day you plan of making the steps possible to achieve your goal in life. You raise the bar to be better at it than before. I was not expected to finish high school. What you feel about yourself matters the most. I became a local artist without any resources. We spent time with the mentally ill during Easter. I could not move. There was a light shining and I am lucky it worked out. I learned a lot about becoming a team player. . Some people label you for your qualities of what you have. I was able to work as a teacher assistant at an elementary school and never had taken a class in education. Without love and recognition. We gave charity to the homeless. We sang at the nursing homes during Christmas. The injury was very painful. I waited on a decision to have a brain operation. People may put me down for being different and I am no longer embarrassed about who I am. but I am okay. You have to comfortable what skin you are in. poor with a learning disability.What is the purpose of trying to achieve at something you are not good at doing? It feels hopeless trying to be better and you fail time and time again. I became confident at what I do in life. The elements of being loved and the feeling of being treated right. When I learned to channel my anger by using the anger doing a skill I loved doing. I became a poet and I taught myself to write. I learned about my civic duty of being committed to my dreams. You begin to feel better about yourself knowing you gave it a try and you made a difference. I felt as if I plunged into darkness. were both stimulating and challenging. I faced death with an iron sword. How I handle stress is irrational. You begin to see results. I would feel insecure and disturbed. than what others feel about you. They give you the moral support. I was a brownie in elementary school. not even to eat. You build your skills each time you practice. I was easy to take advantage of that led to problems later on in life. I was able to become someone special by trying. I have had some close calls to death. I began to open up and I learned how to maintain a strong competent human being. I learned that giving back is important. I felt powerless. They wanted to put a stint in my heart due to lupus. I had elevated enzymes in my liver. because they thought I was retarded. with four shots of morphine as I lie in critical condition. You set a time to practice. I was rushed to the hospital for dehydration. I became the center of others humor that had become an illness. I became a gaming lab assistant without any prior training experience on how to deal a casino game. but each pain was different in a different area of my body. You include others with your goals of being better. My parents were worried when they took me to urgent care and held me for five hours. I have always been sensitive to the things people said about me because I wanted to be liked. I held my pillow and would not move all day. It took me years before I liked me for being me. I was born with a learning disability. I learned to foster my tension towards something positive. We fed the elderly during Thanksgiving. I had undergone much suffering. I learned how good it felt helping others. It is with their love in my life that counts more than anything any stranger can say about me. I learned how to invest my time by doing something positive. It was then.

How can any race say that someone within their race is better than another person because of the hue of skin? Every race has multiple skin tones. I watched how boys became men being house in jovial halls then jails. Why should I be ashamed of the skin that I am in? God made me this skin tone for a purpose. I have seen kids held back in school because their parents could not pay to send them to school. drug dealers and gang bangers with three strikes you are out facing unemployment. Aids is an epidemic that has spread through our community that is caused by unprotected sex. but by the content of their character. People have a fear of contracting aids. One must not judge another by the character of their skin. How ill he felt. Who degrades a person freely? When the community begins to identify whose skin is superior within their own race there is a problem. They come in our communities and explain that you are a statistic because that is what image we want to believe. We are all in the same struggle together. A child who is exposed to poverty. I have seen many people successful all hue of skin. I have seen the poor go crazy trying to survive the harassment. I have witnessed young girls having babies when they were babies themselves. Why discriminate within your own race by a hue of skin. I did not care to see him that way. I fight for diversity in school curriculum. She had sex with others without telling them. One must be comfortable in the skin they are in. I watched how pimps treat their whores by beating them. I saw college hopefuls become victims of disability checks or welfare checks where families lost everything and became dependent of the government to survive. I was fearful of touching him. not being able to deal with failure. not knowing there are alternative that can make things better if we are mentored. I also witnessed strong people come out of poverty and do something positive with their lives. A child who is exposed to many things will see there are alternative that he that influenced him to make things better. I grew up in the heart of the ghetto. I witnessed gun shots being fired all through the night in the neighborhood from sun down to sun rise. I decided I became a poet when I decided to identify with who I am and where I stand. I have seen women hawking their body in the streets. I watched it spread from one donor to another as their condition worsened. He did not think he would catch it too and he did. I had seen people die of the disease. Aids was passed to everyone who it was exposed to. When we begin to separate and divide one another according to skin tone or skin hue.I found my relationship between organizational climates began with writing for the disciplines. I have seen college educated people come back in their community and church and help other hopefuls achieve their dreams. He said he had sex with her because he liked her. There are choices to be made that not everyone supports choice. I write about social conditions in society mores and social norms. I witnessed role models in the community doing positive things in the community because they remember how hard things are for their culture and want to make a difference. My brother had sex with a girl with aids. A statistic is a person who lives up to the prejudices of society by being what is taught them. When a person is held to the constraints that society dictates nothing else matters and things become worst that could have been prevented. I was not educated on how the disease spread. my poetry books is distributed to libraries in schools and universities. I did not decide to become an activist by writing. I saw kids who dropped out of school to become drug addicts. Things are not always what they seem. . we are being a racist bigot. Today. Your tears are both wet and salty. will know poverty. I watched as the disease began to get worst. We are all one race of people.

I was a popular cheer leader in high school. I wanted to be like everyone else. I had changed schools. earning a B or C grade was good. There were people who admired me. The image that I projected made me feel better about myself. because I found myself when I found comfort that I did my best just being at my best. I was treated differently. God says he made everyone beautiful just the way they are. Living up to others will make a fool of yourself. My grades dropped. If the other students made an A grade I got a C grade. We want to feel a part of things. You can be the most beautiful person by the way you dress. It was not something that was expected. things changed. Being yourself will make you confident. People come from all ages and all walks of life. I had a boyfriend on the football team. or how you comb your hair. I had to learn to be different where I did not fit in. When you treat someone nice and they remember is more rewarding than if you buy things you cannot afford and live in debt trying to live up to societies trends of wealth. People bullied me. Beauty is determined by what comes from the inside. I built this defense to prove everyone wrong and now I am really failing. I became depressed because my work was not good enough. Teachers told me with a learning disability. I was always told that I was not good enough. or how you use your intelligence. I could not be as good as them. Beauty is skin deep. Until I began being myself. You are smart. Have you tried to taste new foods? Have you ever tried to learn new things? Do you limit yourself to study one culture literature? Have you ever tried to learn more than one language? Do you express only one political view? Do you constrict yourself to . until I began failing with an F grade. America is a melting pot. I made good grades. It was then I realized that my own insecurity was silent. It never mattered how hard I tried. Do the things you like to do that make you happy? Living up to others want makes you insecure. If you are happy with who you are. I was confused piercing with pain. I had everything going for me. My life was shattered. but I always came in last. I was in the in crowd. I learned that being different could make a difference if I embraced life differently.It is from our own ignorance that we judge others by the skin tone or skin hue to be dumb. I cried many times because my work was not good enough. Do not limit your expectation of yourself by associating with what you are familiar. With a learning disability. I felt uncomfortable about myself at their remarks because I felt it was true. You can express who you are by defining who you are. you are kind and you are nice is important in how you treat others. especially when the things they perceive you to be will never make them like you any more or less and you will always be unhappy. We are motivated by the image we want to present. Everyone knew who I was. I found a hobby and I used it to my advantage. I got myself back again. Personal attributes are far better than how much money you spend on luxury. I was insecure. or how much wealth you have. People walked by and ignored me. There is nothing wrong with being yourself. I became an outcast. ugly and inferior. I became a writer. We dress a certain way afraid of the way others might look at us. Life was not the same. I became closer and closer to flunking school and degrading my family. I did not know anyone there. but the real beauty comes from within in how you carry yourself. I had a lot of friends. We want people to like us so we pretend to be things that we are not proud of. it doesn’t matter whether you live up to others perceptions of what they want you to be.

Instead people will say I look more mature. you will understand your purpose in life. but I had only one true friend. I have hot and cold flashes from menopause. Many people search their entire lives without taking notice of their passion for finding truth. Some may view gray hairs as a sign of aging. It tampers with the heart. I knew a lot of people. I am looking forward to going all gray. I have spotted gray hairs. Understanding your culture is important. Once you find the reasons why things are the way they are. places I went. When I was younger in my twenties. I could tell details of history. I struggle with my memory. because what I had was a good thing. I cannot recall things people just said. I also have had swollen ankles and feet for over ten years. I look at my gray hair as a sign of distinction. I would forget where I placed my keys. . I feel intimidated I have problems following direction. When you feel broken. Until you embrace you for who you are and know what you represent you will lose what matters the most of all. I have an inactive thyroid. confused and convicted. I started having early signs of dementia. I fear I have early altiemers disease. I am aging not because of my age but because of my bad health and I am not ashamed of it. I have problems following conversations I had. I admit I was wrong. You should know your positive qualities about you. I spent my life probing for answers I did not have. The sun celebrates rebirth. people I met. I turned to others wanting to make things sound more than what they seemed. Sometimes a person does not know where they fit in until they lost it. I had a good memory. No one ever compliments on it. I have problems remembering what I did yesterday. When you become familiar with other cultures then you will accurate with society and you will become more cultivated. It was drama. You want others to respect you for who you are. I do not mean to disrespect people by blaming them for forgetting. People can die if there thyroid is malfunctioned. The gray skies culminate regrowth. Forgetting is a place that I am fighting all the time. I thought it was a joke until I found out the memories were true. You should be aware of what you are compassionate about. disgusted. I would forget what day of the week it is. I feel frustrated. If I only steered in the right direction to find the answer to my question. things I did. I am too bashful to point it out. you appear weak. Only you can determine the value of your self-worth but you. until I started forgetting people’s names and places I have been.
