    Beautifully expressed. I was robbed once, and you hit the nail on the head.
    1. Terri said on January 2, 2011
      Thanks, Linda! Burglary is an insidious thing to happen. There are so many worse things in the world that it doesn't seem quite so bad, but the sense of violation, irritation, and loss of faith and security just burns.

    A fascinating shaped acrostic! Many pounding tensions in relentless flow!
    1. Terri said on January 2, 2011
      Thank you.
  19. danroberson said on December 31, 2010
    Feelings flowing, anger growing, freedoms lost, at what cost, never forget, or regret, yet if you forgive, it won't live, in your heart. Easier said than done.
    1. Terri said on January 2, 2011
      You are so very right!

    Happy new year friend! just one word -- beautiful
    1. Terri said on January 3, 2011
      Thanks, Meg! I find that if I can sit down and write it into something better (hopefully beautiful), it transforms ugly events into worthwhile experiences. The power of words.
