Favorite Quote:
Some people dream of success...while others wake up and work at it!

There are lines of paper.
You draw them and they stay, you
erase them they're gone forever

There are lines of boundaries.
This land is yours, this is mine. Cross it if you dare.

There are lines of people. Always waiting until it's your turn.

There are lines of friendship. They are line paper lines, except more painful.

Then there are lines of love.
They are strong yet they are weak.
They can stay like paper or disappear forever.
Boundaries are set for you and others. Don't take him away, don't cross this line. Lines of people come and go, but they leave scars in their wake.
Love is more than friendship, so the pain is even worse.

Do me a favor. Keep your line straight for me, and I'll do the same for you.

This is a response to the poem Lines by Martha Collins. I like that poem a lot so I made my version of it.
