I write for myself, for the web, and for everyone who gets me. I've been on a fasting liquid diet, traveled to Europe, and raised 2 kids. And I'm directionally challenged - I get lost a lot.

Neno's Poem

I like Neno's poem because it has that universal truth element - no matter how much human beings have, something else always looks better.

why is it that we crave what we cannot have

that the grass is greener on the other side of street

we don't appreciate us, and everything is hell

everyday we vow, this is enough - we gonna quit

why do we want the happiness of others

is it just jealousy or a legitimate goal

why do we care for pets more than brothers

pretending we're busy, with no answer when they call

why do we force our children to succeed

to become famous or insanely rich

on the other side of river we see the elite

so we use our children to build us a bridge

why do we compare our troubles to the hell

when most of us live in paradise - and we know it well
