is a whore best left a virgin

those who live in the moment
only have a moment to live
but it seems a far better fate
then to live the guarded life
for that one moment has already been lived
and life is but a struggle to remember it


The life that should be cherished no matter what happens along the pathway you chose, those you meet as you say are there as they can be nowhere else.
An act that repeats itself over and over again is just an empty echo.
If you choose you can live in an echo without form, as this is the end product of that way.
Those that live in a moment, that moment will last forever.
But it is like being locked up some place and the key is lost.
Better to live that guarded life, as there you will find a freedom of what you can do, and each day will be a mystery.
I have been shown a library by one of the children, where you can read all the books from yesterday, and the now, but the section that has the books of tomorrow, are out of our reach, and we are forbidden to read.
If only we could read tomorrow.
So we will have to be content with today and make it worthy of our search for betterment.
Yours as always Ian.T

There are a million reasons to believe in yourself,

Forgive me for forgetting your name but I put it down to an age thing lol.
Life should not be confusing it should be lived, though sometimes we struggle to see "us" in these day to day things.
I think that loneliness is the hard part to overcome it becomes a habit and then a lifestyle.
Confusion just another thing to try us, a place you reach, and there seems to be a blank wall there in the pathway, then a trapped feeling comes in.
Embrace the wall hold it arms outstretched, pull it into a pillar,
Then squash it into a box and send the box to the nearest star, there it will become one with the star and not stand in your way, in fact it will light your ways, where you once again can see those that have always been there for you.
Maybe you need to cry about being confused, come on pick a time to remedy the problem, something solid is your need, a single thing that cannot change, the face of the moon, follow the shadows across its surface, they take a month to go from one state through to the same state, though they appear to be solid yet change from day to day,.
I wonder what you are confused about it is such a wide subject, talk to us some more and we will be here.
I will ask the children I know to show me what is wrong, but better to come from you.
Talk to you later so drop us a line when you have a space, Yours as always Ian.T

You should post it as a poem for such it is.
