Wintertime can be the most
depressing season. The roads are to
slick to drive on, the sky is so gray, and
there is no life in the trees. Often this
dampers one's outlook on the season and
on life in general.
Well, there is hope! There is pretty
white snow on the ground that can be
fun to play in • and throw at your
boyfriend or your, girlfriend, I know,
you say you hate to get wet and cold, so
don't. Instead, stay inside with a good
book and a large mug of hot chocolate.
Play games with your friends, like
Trivial Pursuit, Scruples, or Pictionary,
or study and "get ahead".
There is no need to lose hope when
Winter creeps in, So, maybe there Isn't
a whole lot one can do outside of
Montreat— so enjoy what you have.
Actually, wjnter is beautiful and there
are days when the roads aren't all bad
and one can get out of the gates, I urge
you to take in the beauty of the season
though, and thank God for ft. Attitudes
can make a difference, and I mean good
, attitudes. Keep yourself busy and don't
stay alone for long periods of time, this
.may also help.
Just remember this season only
comes once a year and is not that long
either. In fact, in about one and a half
months we'll leave for Spring Break—
doesn't that encourage you? Hang in
Measure for Measure
I cannot hear
My heart is still
They cry in pain
I shoot to kill
My firey arrows
One by one
Hit the mark
Missed by none
The wounds are deep
But no one sees
The scars behind
The hurt it leaves.
The pain they cry
Is aimed at me
But I'm so quick
I just don't see:.,.
That they are hurting
Just like me.
Hello out there, world;
It's me in here
Can't you see me?
What? You're having trouble hearing
But I'm in here.
Yes, that's right.
Inside myself of course.
This outside shell is very thick;
I’m having trouble getting out.
Who am I? You say I don’t sound like
That's because you never heard me.
This other guy? Oh, he's the shell
I told you about.
You say that's me?
No, I'm inhere;
He's just my protection.
Protection from what?
From you, the world,
I can't be hurt here.
You see, my shell keeps you away.
You, the world, are pain.
I’m safe in here;
I will never be laughed at.
The shell, oh, he doesn’t mind laughter,
Come to think of it,
I'm comiortable in here.
Why should I leave?
Hello, world, still listening?
What's that world?
I thought for a minute you said
It was a faint voice;
It sounded; human, real, I thought.
I thought is was answering me.
1 can’t hear to well inside this shell.
Well, I feel funny, sleepy,
And it's so comfortable in here world.
