From Jan Tetstone's poetry Diary

I find this to still be true,nine years later. jt

There are many kinds
of people in the world.

None are good all the
time and none are bad
all the time . . .

Some cry while others
smile . . .
Some lead seemingly
full lives . . .
While other lives are
empty . . .
Some dream of things to
come . . .
Others morn for things
come and gone.

There are many kinds
of heartache . . .
Heartache inflicted by
others and heartache
we help to make.

As different as we are
on the outside
Inside us all is a beating
heart and the desire
to be all that we can be
in a world of conflict where
strangers are thought to be
the enemy.

When you close your door
to a stranger you add a brick
to the wall of separation
that has long plagued humanity.

I was born and raised wearing hand me down shoes and clothes-but I was richer by far than those who thought themselves 'my betters.'  I'd take love over riches and fame any day.
