I have spent so much time focusing on trying to make it in life since being in the foster care system in florida that a lot of the feelings of this persons posts in the poetry section is starting to come back to me which is sending me into a tail spin of thoughts.I feel i must dive into the deep drink and find the lost fish coming from the boomer i came from that had kept me charting needed paths in the rough seas of life in order to make it and keep going.

Very powerful poetry posts that have me stopping again and asking myself, what i am still fighting for and why i for some reason can't go ahead and ending my suffering that i am going thru.Some of the members here say i have a strength that they wonder why it keeps me going well it is almost the same reason why this person who has posted this very powerful poetry has not gone down the road he talks about in his post.

I personally have come very close in some instances to what this person has discussed in his posts and wonder why i can't go thru with it, i wonder am i not manly enough to do this task or do i just not have the guts to ring the bell and just quit, i don't know to me it still is unforseen.For now i will ponder on the thoughts at hand and seek the underlying answer as i myself am still trying to understand what is driving me and why i have come as far as i have without letting the underlying and inner issues take over and finalize how i have felt for years.More later as i think more on the level,many thoughts running and processor is running over drive so need time to reflect before i post more.


Sincerely,
The Hammer

Matt, it takes guts to stay, and to fight, as you have been.

You have guts, guts to write here and say what you are feeling, guts to ask questions instead of just accepting a horrible truth.

You have the guts to look pain in the eye, and not back down. Even as you feel like giving in, you haven't. THAT IS GUTS.

Someone somewhere said, "Courage isn't a lack of fear; courage is continuing when you are afraid."

Do not despair. You have courage.

Peace,
James

I've seen your 'guts' in action, we all have.

You take no crap, you'll stand up for yourself and others. You aren't frightened of voicing your opinions and saying what you believe.

That's true guts, it doesn't matter if the whole world disagrees with you, you have the balls to be heard and make your point. And I hope you always carry on doing so.

Because while you're doing it your gaining something from it, you're thinking and reasoning, judging and dealing with whatever is going on around you. If we sit and vegitate it beats us.

To fight our corner in whatever way we can takes guts.

Dave
