Baby boy

Baby boy You are looking at the Soul of God when you look into the eyes of a newborn, you cannot get more pure of heart or innocence of soul. When I wrote that I was thinking of every one of my boys. I may not be perfect, I am only human and as such prone to making mistakes, it is how we are wired, we are supposed to learn from them, not pay for them for the rest of your lives. When I look back in my life at the very few good things that I have done one of the best was about thirty-one years ago, I can very much remember as if it were only just yesterday as the teardrops formed in my eyes when the doctor looked over at me shook my hand and he said as he handed you to me "congratulations your a father to a little baby boy" then they fell down to the ground like a hard summers rain, then I heard for the very first time your tiny little cry so I looked up and saw the lighting in your eyes and I knew right then that you had a wild soul like mine, while I felt all the thunder insi

Who I am?

Who I am? I am always wondering who I am or why am I here and other thoughts that are always running through my mind, searching my whole entire life so far everywhere I could but only more questions are all I ever find, I know my name that is for sure, well I mean unless I was actually switched at birth, do we know that I was not? I know who my family is and that is not only blood at least most the time, yet there is always nagging questions that fill me from inside as if my heart and soul are always getting confused causing me to always want to run, yet I know that there is never any place to hide from me, so I asked again who am I?

Before five years ago I was not a believer in anything at all more a creationism type of person.. I was Baptised in a Catholic church as a baby but never felt right in a church where sexual abuse was ignored, tried other churches of different denominations but felt like I was being milked of tithings feeling like I was a sinner going to hell for not.. Making me feel like I needed to give money to the poor when I could barely feed myself. So I gave up on any belief I had.. But I listened and read and got more confused... Just more questions that nobody could answer like why am I going to hell if I smoke weed? It came from God he created it they wore sandals made from it... So you say if it is illegal then it

You gave me
