Always Wanting More

I was born in a small town, (Bathurst) New Brunswick, Canada,. The third eldest of thirteen children, ten girls and three boys.

Life's like a poorly penned poem,
punctuated by emotions.
Often abstract and mystical,
it's hard to find its true meaning.

Influencing both heart and soul,

And so we perceive existence,
as extensions of our feelings.

Some lines are profoundly painful,
while others are written with joy.
Yet they share similarities,

allows dreams and feats of magic.
For the words shuck reality,
to speak supernatural thoughts.

Curiosity turns each page,
leaving us always wanting more.
And the ending's an illusion,
conjured to appease scripted tears.
