Some Side North Of The Mountain

Some will give up their life’s ambitions,
Some will give up their hopes and dreams.
some will give up their hopes of life,
For a chance to meet their hopes and dreams.
Some will succumb to their struggles,
And be laid to rest in their graves.
some will lay rest to all their struggles,
And come to visit them in their graves.
Some will decide to take charge,
And receive anything they ask for.
Some will let their fear take charge,
And give it anything it asks for.
Some will create their own destinies,
And make what they want to happen happen.
Some will lose sight of their destinies,
And let whatever happens happen.
Some will dwell among their obstacles,
And let them tower up like a mountain.
Some will tower up over their obstacles,
And come to reside just north of the mountain.

I love this, it's nothing short of beautiful, because truth is beautiful.  Yes, sometimes the truth hurts, but the simple truth that it is what it is is beautiful, and it can be nothing short of what it is. :)

Dreamflash looks at the envelope, then at the departing figure, then at the observers and says, "Did I miss something?"

BOosflash watches from the secret lab as dreamflash looks at the boosflash decoy robot clone thingy. "no", the real boos says. "you didnt miss a thing." Boos then does thy maniacal evil laugh.

Well, I can honestly say I didn't, but from the mushroom cloud in my neighbor's house, I think I can safely say "I told you so."
