My Dignity

My dignity.
My dignity is personal.

It doesn’t belong to you.
It belongs to me.

You have no right to injure
No right to condemn
No right to trample
No right to sneer

For the show of disrespect,
I will spit you out of my mouth
I will shun you in public
You are air to me.

What message shall I send
To make you understand that
I will not put up with your bullshit?.
That I will not cater to your insecurities?

My will is strong. My hatred runs deep.
Are you ready to reap the whirlwind?
Prepare yourself, for where I take you,
No one will stand beside you.

I take back the hand I held out in friendship.
I take back the compassion I gave.
I take back the understanding, when no one else did.
I take back the love.

When the hour of need is strong,
Do not look for me, for I will not be there for you.
You no longer exist in my life.
So mote it be.

slaves in body and spirits of the past

Just As I am

Just as I am
Is all the world will ever need of me
No long speeches
Dramatic gestures
Or hyperbolic ways

What you see is what you get
Nothing more; nothing less
My ways are transparent
My life, simple and sweet

Look for the tiniest grain of sand,
I am there.

Think the loftiest dreams of thought,
I am there.

Find the scum of the earth,
I am there.

For every song sung,
Every celebration of life,
Every tear of loss,
I linger there.

Do not betray my trust,
Do not betray my respect,
Do not betray my friendship,
Do not betray my love;
For in so doing, I will be destroyed.

In the cold of winter,
the heat of summer,
the cool of spring,
My presence will whisper to you
And you shall remember me,
Even when I am only a distant memory.

Mark Felt revealed as "Deep Throat"

"Deep Throat" revealed after 30 years of secrecy

The identity of "Deep Throat" has finally been revealed. Perhaps, one day, all speculation and controversy of the assasination of President John F. Kennedy will be revealed as well.

WASHINGTON -- Solving a mystery that lasted more three decades, a former top FBI official admitted that he was "Deep Throat," the secret source who helped expose the Watergate scandal. Washington Post reporter Bob Woodward confirmed Tuesday that W. Mark Felt, the FBI's No. 2 official in the early 1970s, was the mysterious figure who fed him tips about corruption in President Richard Nixon's White House. Full story, Detroit Free Press.
