Favorite Quote:
I have discovered in life that there are ways of getting almost anywhere you want to go, if you really want to go. --Langston Hughes


Once, I thought,
I respected you
Now that I am here
I realize it was fear.
Respect is something
Returned to respect.
Do you respect me?
If you are not sure about that answer,
Just let me know
Because I am sure that it is
Hell NO!
You treat me as if I am your slave
Disposable, unworthy, cheap.
To be hidden away.
Let me inform you,
I am not
I am much more than you think.
I am
The Declaration of Independence,
Unique, something that you keep.
I am much more than you think
I am
The Queen of England, Elizabeth
Worthy so as to have no need for a king.
I am much more than you think.
I am
The world’s largest gold mine
Costing more money than you have ever seen.
I am much more than you think.
So go ahead,
Dispose of me,
I will let you know that there are
Plenty, far and wide, willing to take me.
Toss me away,
I will let you know that there are
Those who worship me.
Sell me for a low price,
I will let you know that there are
Many who would pay a pretty penny for me.
Some advice,
You may want to begin
Thinking much more of me
Because the truth is
I am much more than you think.
