The tired man searches for the shore,

He remembers the day he entered the medicine man's tepee:
"Wise man, what is that concoction you're brewing?"
The medicine man replied, "This here is the elixir of immortality.
Would you like to take a drink?"
"Yes, most certainly."-the man didn't stop to think
as he chugged the potion that never stopped bubbling.
"I'm free! I'm free!" he chanted as he left the medicine man's tepee.
"No murderous hands or battle weapons can scathe me,
because I have immortality!"
The years did pass, along with his friends and family-
but not he, because he has immortality.
At this he thought, "It is not sublime,
but rather a crime
to live on Earth until the end of time."
So now this tired man seeks the shore,
"Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not."-Jeremiah 33:3, King James Version
"Your word is a lamp to guide my feet and a light for my path."-Psalm 119:105, New Living Translation
The present and future are not about who you were in the past-rather, they are about who you are and who you will become.
"Writing is truly glorious in that an author can put on paper the words that fear denies the voice to speak."-from my short story, "Set Free"
"...What you feel is what you are;
What you are is beautiful..."

Life surprises you! And I'm talking about the good stuff, because a bad surprise is not a surprise at all, it is just shock and horror. All of these good surprises, they are rewards, and the things that happen to remind you that you matter and that you should make yourself faithful so that you can be deserving of all of life's good surprises. Every wonderful surprise in life is a chance to flourish, so grab life by the horns-but don't ride, steer instead: life's horns are life's joystick. You can handle it, because your life's horns are made especially for you. If you don't give up, all of this will hold true and life will continue to surprise you.
