Terms of Endearment

I am no diplomat; I am neither prince nor king, I am neither princess nor queen. Please do not bestow me with titles I am unqualified to weild-- I am your belovéd, not a political figurehead.


Walk Away

When sadness surpasses joy, When pain prevails over pleasure, When regrets exceed fond memories, When destruction dominates construction, When name-calling eclipses friendly banter, When others show you contempt and disrespect, You are permitted to walk away.
