PakThe innarnatiotel community should never be allowed to act in such
manner as it is a system that cannot apply equal pain to all its members.
What I mean is, should the innarnatiotel community take similar action for
GITMO? Clearly, it cannot take on the US, therefore it is not a system of
justice. It is essentially a political system to be used by those with most
influence. Therefore it should only be limited to economic/soft power.

I plan to rretun to read and write before this day slips away. For now,
this is what I wrote one year ago, today.Sonnet for an April MoonThe final
April moon will soon take leave.Contentedly, he navigates the sky.He knows
not that his passing makes us grieve,Nor hears the tone of our collective
sigh.For thirty eves, the moon has cast his spellReleasing inspiration from
his coreYet, now has come the time to say farewell,As April’s moon will
strum our hearts no more.No gathering beneath his fetching smile,Nor
once-upon-a-timing ‘neath his glow.Though next year, he will once again
beguile;Inspiring prose and verse to daily flow.Our melancholy hearts will
melt away,For there will be a new moon come what May.

Well I was sent here to read this poem by a friend. I have a similar poem
called "I'm an Addict" If you try to read to much into a poem you might
only understand the words that are written. My poem is in no way about
drugs but where I live drugs are a big problem. So I figured if i wrote
about drugs it would reach more people. I could touch and hopefully help
someone. Well I guess what I am trying to say is sometimes its hard to see
forrest through the trees. Much Love,
EzRa

jennifer is such a ho
anne is not saying drugs are good
she is saying she is grateful for the drugs because they make her able to
live her life, but she knows that they cannot save her
