Two Little Boys - Rolf Harris

Two little boys had two little toys
Each had a wooden horse
Gaily they played each summer's day
Warriors both of course

One little chap then had a mishap
Broke off his horse's head
Wept for his toy then cried with joy
As his young playmate said

Did you think I would leave you crying
When there's room on my horse for two
Climb up here Jack and don't be crying
I can go just as fast with two

When we grow up we'll both be soldiers
And our horses will not be toys
And I wonder if we'll remember
When we were two little boys

Long years had passed, war came so fast
Bravely they marched away
Cannon roared loud, and in the mad crowd
Wounded and dying lay

Up goes a shout, a horse dashes out
Out from the ranks so blue
Gallops away to where Joe lay
Then came a voice he knew

Did you think I would leave you dying
When there's room on my horse for two
Climb up here Joe, we'll soon be flying
I can go just as fast with two

Did you say Joe I'm all a-tremble
Perhaps it's the battle's noise
But I think it's that I remember
When we were two little boys

Do you think I would leave you dying
There's room on my horse for two
Climb up here Joe, we'll soon by flying
Back to the ranks so blue

Can you feel Joe I'm all a tremble
Perhaps it's the battle's noise
But I think it's that I remember
When we were two little boys

Poem: I Can't

Love cripples the heart.
Emotions fall apart,
As your voice calms me.
This truth you'll never see.

I shake inside in terror,
As my path to you becomes narrow.
Love is meaningless apart;
I'll die seeing you depart.

You know none of this though,
For the feelings I've never showed,
Nor will I ever tell you
Because I've never seen anything true.

So love dies today.
I fade into the shade.
You go back to your home,
Leaving me with these thoughts to roam. 

Poem - I wonder if you Know

I wonder if you know 

that every night before i go to sleep 
I pray 2 times 
One prayer for me 
And the other one for you 

I wonder If u know 
That I ask God To keep you safe 
I ask him,to bless you with happiness 
And keep Sorrow From ur way 

I wonder if you know 
That having you guys is like 
having my own collection of stars 
Always shinning in my way 
For you,I'll fight a thousand wars 

I wonder if you know 
That when ur sad 
I get sad to 
Because ur happiness is my own 
And I hate to see you down 

And I'll continue to wonder 
If I do enough,To let you know 
How much I care 

And I wonder if you know 
That u can always count on me 
I am right next to you 
And i forever will be 

I wonder if you know 
That you People mean this World to me 
And If it wasnt for you, 
I wouldn't not be here 

I wonder if you know 
That I'll risk my life 
to safe ur own 

I wonder if you know 
That ur the best thing that ever happend to me 
Trough this bumpy ride 
Called L.I.F.E 

And I wonder if you know 
That I Wrote this From the heart 
Because today we are all together 
But tomorrow we might fall apart 

I Wonder if you know 
That i had to let you know 
That I mean every single word 

Because I Wonder if you know 
That Tomorrow,One of us could Leave 
Without saying Goodbye 
And I'll never Know When I'll see You all again 
For that means,I will always Leave you,With Loving words

Story Creation

During this hot evening, I have been working on my first story creation in the last six months. Today has been a stressful day. Now, I feeling relaxed and got a lot done tonight. Not sure about a title, but I have worked for three hours, I've got most of everything down on paper.

I got Theme, Time Span, Setting, Plot, and Characters. Now I have to build complete characters to build either tonight or in the morning after some sleep and relaxation. I have thoroughly enjoyed writing my notes on my story, I'll start writing on Saturday/Sunday. I feel it's time to get back into the water and create another masterpiece. My first story has everything but character building done. I found that if I let God guide me, I can get a lot done.

I pray silently in my heart for God and the Holy Ghost to to lead me in my story creation and getting a complete plan I can work with to get writing a good quality story. Whether you write short stories, poems, articles and novels, planning it all out and letting God lead you,l you get a lot done. I believe God touched me to during Easter and is showing me what I should write. Be Blessed...

Writing Process: Brainstorming

I have been doing a lot of research about the story I want to write. Using some of my life experiences to write to story I want to write. First being transgendered is a issues most live through in this world. There are people who brandish people who are gay, lesbian, and transgendered. We get branded with so many homophobia people with hate crimes and try to kill us and out us in this world.

I'm a devote catholic and love my church, my friends and my family here in America. If you want to find out what a transgendered person is, google it. Please try to understand we are people with feelings, word hurt.

I struggle with so much in my life, but writing is a way to get my feeling and dreams out onto paper and maybe for people to read and understand. I live with the thought that I can never change my body, but in dreams and wishes, I can let my dreams show me what life would be like if I changed my gender and it matched my mind. Life is too short to wish and dream. Be true to yourself. and follow your heart. This is my word.. Peace... and Love are the best things to remember.

Miscellaneous Advice and Collected Words of Wisdom

  • Don't worry about selling the story you wrote. Worry about writing a story that will sell itself.
  • Just because someone says he knows something doesn't mean he does. The world's full of "writers" and "agents" and "editors" who have no clue what they're doing.
  • Yog's Rule: Money flows toward the writer. Any business that wants the writer to put up money should be avoided. A business that takes a cut of money on its way to the writer, such as an agent taking a commission, is acceptable, but the direction of flow should always be toward you, never away.
  • It's not an editor's job to be fair to writers. It's an editor's job to make money for his publisher by acquiring and packaging books people want to read. Writing professionally is not a contest or a competition or a sweepstakes; it's a business, and you're on the selling end in a buyer's market. Expect editors to treat you not like a beloved student, but like a salesman who's interrupting them -- you'd better have a product that'll make the interruption worthwhile, and the manners to convince them to look at it.
  • "I'm often asked if writing classes are any help, and my immediate and enthusiastic answer is always, Yes! Writing classes are wonderful for the writers who teach them and can't make ends meet without that supplementary income. They are also good places for unattached people to meet, talk about books and movies, have a few drinks and possibly hook up. But teach you to write? No. A writing class will not teach you to write."
                        --Stephen King, "The Writing life," 
    Washington Post Book World, October 1, 2006
  • "Like it or not, there is a culture of unpublished writers. It includes its own mythology (sending yourself your own ms by registered mail to somehow secure magical protection from plagiarism and copyright infringement), superstitions (paperclip or not?), hagiography and so on. In that culture it's a fairly widespread belief that there is no real communication between an editor and an unknown writer."
                        -- Fred Welden, SFF-Net, Feb. 1999
    If you are an unpublished writer, it's easy to be drawn into the culture Fred describes. It's easy to accept its mythology. You'll find dozens of people who believe it all implicitly.
    Some of that mythology is useful information; much of it is pernicious nonsense and superstition that will only get in your way.
  • There's a whole industry out there advising beginning writers, feeding off the culture mentioned above. Some of it is honest and helpful; some isn't. Let me point you toward a few resources and warn you away from a few others:
    • SFWA's Webpage has a lot of good advice, regardless of what genre you're writing in -- the same basics apply.
    • There are a couple of bits worth reading at HWA's site, too.
    • The small-press magazine Speculations is usually useful
    • The SFWA Bulletin can be trusted.
    • Writer's Digest, alas, is not trustworthy -- I think they're basically well-intentioned, but much of their income comes from paid ads from people who prey on unsuspecting would-be writers, so they'll sometimes give advice that's designed not so much to help beginners as to keep their advertisers in business.
    • If you have the sort of personality that can handle the rough-and-tumble of Usenet newsgroups, rec.arts.sf.composition is aimed at advising beginning writers in the SF/fantasy field, and can be useful. Misc.writing, alas, I cannot recommend; the louder voices have triumphed over the more knowledgeable there.
This post came from a website.Below is a link to said website. I've been writing for 6 yrs on and off. I have finished my first book, which is due to be published in Jan 2011. Remember I have been researching a lot about writing and what I could learn from others.

Day One - Getting Inspiration

I have decided today is going to be the first day of the rest of my life. while being out most of the day with my partner, I started to think about a title for my first non-fiction book. I want to write about my life from being born in Ireland, living in England and some of the different countries in Europe, then moving to America to be free from my biological family.

It's been a lot of tragedy in my life. I have lost so many children in my lifetime so far, I'm frightened to have any with my partner. Well, I should say my husband. Anyhow, while we were running around and I was glued to my wheelchair in a lot of intense, chronic pain. I was considering what I was going to call my memoirs. I mumbled to myself on bus trips and also while hubby wheeled me through down-town so we could get bus home and I could rest on couch or even take a nap.

We waited a short time to get onto a bus, but before we could get onto it, the driver drove right passed. It didn't let me or some others waiting fro that bus to get on. it was infuriating. The longer I was down-town, I was in pain and the pain was getting worse, which made me very moody.

Finally we got onto a bus, and was heading home after not being able to get on three buses going home. I decided to call and complain big time. Once we were inside our home, I sat on couch and had lunch, it was late. We'd been out from 9:30am to 3pm. It was hot, I was bothered. After lunch, I'd calmed down and was ready to get thinking about my title. Hubby put on a DVD to calm himself down. which was alright with me. He put on Transformers Energon(cartoon). I love the cartoon and movie of same name.

Sittin with my feet up and writing on my blog (Our Spiritual Journey) one. Link in bloggers list. Once my post was done, I started to read email and got sent a link to two writing groups so I joined. Not realizing that my post might sound offish to people of Mormon or Jehovah Witnesses, which I hadn't meant to get mad at those faiths. I was sent an email from one the new groups, and was commented on my [post. So I added a warning on the bottom of my post, hoping they would see it was my ranting about what faiths I've tried and gotten rejected from.

Anyhow, getting off topic again aren't I... Sorry. Right back to the topic at hand. I decided after one episode I wanted to watch something religious, so we put in Parables of Jesus, I got from library. It's aimed at young children and teens, but that's why I like these sorts of DVDs and books. I want to be able to reach children and teens and show them the goodness of God and having a belief and making good friends etc.

See getting off the topic again, I do apologise. Well I started to watch the DVD, and prayed in the silence of my heart and was given the title. I was shocked, but thinking about it for a while it sounded good. (Self Damnation to God Salvation) is the title of my real life story, memoir. Maybe in time I will make sure i get it started. The problem is with my health issues, I they bother me a lot. I want to also get a title for a fiction novel I want to write, and I prayed about it. I got (Twisted Soul). I'm not sure if God is joking with me or not.  Maybe he is getting a bit of my sarcasm, who knows. Anyhow I plan to get writing on one of those titles today sometime. Who knows, maybe my C.R.H.P. sisters might get a kick out of this post. They love my writing...
