The Power of Three

How many times does it take?
How many trials before I break?
Just how far am I willing to go?
For years I have tried, and now I know.

Happy endings are designed to put faith to the test
Just believe they say, relax, whatever happens is for the best
Do not try to force it, that's not the way it works
You must place your soul's trust in the power of the universe

Most things will go your way
While some things just will not
Its all designed to show yourself
Exactly what you've got.

It wasn't very smooth sailing, but I knew it wouldn't be
Infused with hope I opened my heart to every possibility
With wonder as my guide, and faith to show the way
I spread my wings so willing, ready to start a brand new day.

But there are just too many people near the king of compromise
Too much interference, I wonder if he'll ever realize
Things just got too big, I think, there's no simplicity
It's all beyond the reach of a simple girl like me.

How many times does it take?
How many trials before I break?
Just how far am I willing to go?
For years I have tried, and now I know.

You write well D.  

your refrain

"How many times does it take?
How many trials before I break?
Just how far am I willing to go?
For years I have tried, and now I know."

says it alllllllllll for me.  

I don't know about the quote....I think I did direct the course of love...at least this last time.  I'll do an entry about it some time because I know that sounds weird.  Can I borrow this quote?

E - And may you, always, as well.

Pixie - Ah, no.  It's all about me!  <stomps foot>

Kare - You know it!

Storm - Thank you.  Kind words do much.  And yes, the quote is not mine, it is Kahlil Gibran, from his chapter on Love in the book 'The Prophet.'

It is nice to know my writing, these words and feelings, connect with you.  And that's why I write.  :)
