There you two are in the distance. You both are my dull glimmers of hope. So very far away from safety, my girl and her child. I have tried to rescue you. But now... it is between you and God.

My silence is a screaming, "Come Home! Come(more)
Growing up with four brothers - I never got along well with other females. Not that I was a tom-boy completely. More so then not. But it wasn't just that. I knew other tom-boyish girls. We just didn't click. Because conversations - even with my lizard catching, b.b gun(more)
I am not competitive. It is not my nature.
