All because of you

I was born a child of grace
Nothing else about the place
Everything was ugly but your beautiful face
And it left me no illusion

I saw you in the curve of the moon
In the shadow cast across my room
You heard me in my tune
When I just heard confusion

All because of you
All because of you
All because of you
I am...I am

I like the sound of my own voice
I didn't give anyone else a choice
An intellectual tortoise
Racing with your bullet train

Some people get squashed crossing the tracks
Some people got high rises on their backs
I'm not broke but you can see the cracks
You can make me perfect again

All because of you
All because of you
All because of you
I am...I am

I'm alive
I'm being born
I just arrived, I'm at the door
Of the place I started out from
And I want back inside

All because of you
All because of you
All because of you
I am

Hey, this poem is awesome!

I should have more time to read your stuff later!

This is my favorite part..
Some people get squashed crossing the tracks
Some people got high rises on their backs
I'm not broke but you can see the cracks
You can make me perfect again

peace

It is a U2 song called "All Because of You". If only I could take credit!

I thought that I heard that somewhere. Noticed that I am no longer on the blogs you read...what a bummer...no matter I figured out to link to blogs a few months back and am linked to you. You were my first...commentor that is.

Congrats on raising, what I am sure is a, beautiful daughter. And I am sure the vote is still out on the twins. Stop by sometime.

Cack,

You stopped writing for a long time! I did remove it because well, there had been nothing new to read!

I hear ya! Thanks for stopping by again. As you can see I have been a writing/blogging fool.
