"Choosife?"

I don't know from where
His staunch military mind-set comes
How can I give him a second glimplse,
into the distinct mortality fears I face?

I see so many other potential paths
for a warm-hearted masculine being such as he
His people skills and creative approach to life
lend themselves more to a public service without death

His caring mind and bravely gentle nature,
Overlooked and wasted in rigid routine
He doesn't belong in an early grave
Simply since no one encourages his other talents

I want to know twenty years down the road
that my dear "best" friend thought this choice thoroughly out
He deserves to know how precious his life is to many,
Irreplacable with n'er a doubt

As if they were someday to hate
We hated gently, carefully
As if we were someday to love"-Venus Trines at Midnight

No, Total Pieces, not exactly but he plans to as soon as he has 17th birthday, on June 18th. I'm scared for him...

Partial truth~the seeds of wisdom~can be found in many places...The seeds of wisdom are contained in all scriptures ever written… especially in art, music, and poetry and, above all, in Nature.

It's a shame you aren't on facebook. I'm friends with her there.
