The Power You Have

You know what!
I love the little droplets of water on a cold glass,
I love how when you brush your teeth that nasty taste from when you wake up goes away.
I love when someone smiles at me it just makes me smile.
I love to laugh,
I love honesty,
I love when someone you don't even know has the confidence to talk to you.
I want to leave,
Leave a fingerprint,
Ten years from now,
Twenty,
Maybe even 60,
I want to have made a difference an impact,

I Love Music!
Music is art, it is beauty,
It is absolute perfection
I can never get over how something as simple as a song can lift your spirits,
Understand you more than any other person can.

Flying?
I want to fly,
Take that jump,
That Leap,
I want to soar,
Now... Landing.
Landing safely home.

Fears?
Of course, I have them!
Do I let them conquer me?
No way!

My mind loves to wonder,
I will sit there and just stare at someone and think...
I wonder...
What are you thinking?
Then I look over, see someone else, and think wow so many faces,
I wonder does anyone else do that.

My mind has been confused for a while sometimes I think it is at war with itself.
I guess you know what I mean.

I Love Contact!
I cannot stand silence or distance.
I like to talk, as you can tell,
I like to listen, to learn.
I love to play games, have a good time.
I love jokes and would you rather questions.
Sometimes I wonder about what the rest of you think of me...
But honestly, I do care sometimes but I know deep down if you cared or are my friends at all you would never judge me harshly.
Sometimes I keep secrets,
But trust me someday you will know them,
I just don't know how to tell you guys them yet.
RUFF!!!
Ha-ha one more thing is.... I LOVE TO BARK!
I get on my knees and chase my dogs and bark,
Sometimes I roll over and it's hilarious,
I see four dogs just jump and tackle me practically.
Whenever I get home, the first thing I do is go outside and play with them.
Dogs are the best medicine to heal a bad day and a way to continue a Good one.
Weird faces?
YES!
I make them all the time,
I love to see someone's face when they see yours looking all freaky.
STARING CONTESTS! are the best
Ha-ha I usually do not win but I love to try,
I mean if you never try, you will never succeed either.
If you doubt yourself, you will strike out.
If you scare yourself, you will quit.
I think if you think something, you should say it.
I mean why keep it bottled up.
You need to trust once in awhile.
I need to learn that.
Or needed to, I think I am doing it now.
Ask me anything...
I'll answer...
Maybe.

Hm. This is interesting. I really like how you take a form- the confessional- and give it such voice. Its the voice that really validates this as poetry.
