    i never learned to play the tambourine. always liked the movement of the cymbals and of course the sound, but have always been intimidated by instruments, except piano. but hen, i’m intimidated by so many things and yet i hate to miss out rand the tambourine reminds me of that

    i never deserved a penny
    i never deserved a life
    but the lord jesus came and cared for me,
    and now i live without strife.

  • elaina commented on the post, entitled 4 years, 8 months ago

    i have never felt entitled but i know better than to think that i don’t work that way. our whole society is entitled, or feels it, and surely i have fallen prey to that mentality. i’d be lying to think that i could escape such thinking, or that i could handle twenty million dollars with aplomb

    i wasn’t allowed to do anything. not go anywhere. do anything. i was all alone in this great big world. and i didn’t even have freedom.

  • elaina commented on the post, tutoring 4 years, 9 months ago

    I am not a math wiz by any stretch of the imagination. However, I was approached by someone who, inexplicably, decided I was THE person to teach him algebra. On our first day, I had to ask him to remind me what x stands for and then re-explain the meaning of y. After our first hour of HIM tutoring me, I was finally able to tech him how to SPELL…[Read more]

    i sat, huddles, waiting for the man to pass by. i’ve never felt so frozen and scared in my life, and i couldn’t believe that i was afraid of that man. the man i had loves for so many years, trusted with my life, never questioned or doublted, but here i was, huddled, waitinting for

  • elaina commented on the post, educated 4 years, 11 months ago

    Education is important to most.
    I never really liked it,
    But my mother forced it upon me.
    I’ve worked my tail off for 8 years,
    Never stopping, never pausing.
    But I’ll never forget the impact it has made upon me.

  • elaina commented on the post, ravenous 5 years, 7 months ago

    i have no idea what this means, so don’t judge me. actually, my mom just told me that it means that you’re like famished. if that’s what it means, then i’m always ravenous, because i’m always hungry.

  • elaina commented on the post, footage 5 years, 8 months ago

    footage is important in dancing, if this is the right definition for it. i like dancing and i’m really good at it, too.

  • elaina commented on the post, wistful 5 years, 9 months ago

    the young girl was wistful for a new life.
    she was lonely, sad, and unhappy.
    a new life would give her a second chance.
    she wouldn’t make the same mistake.
    she wouldn’t meet that man.

    he wouldn’t marry her mother.
    he wouldn’t be so harsh.
    he wouldn’t even be real
    if she had another life.

    the young girl was wistful for a new life.

    She sells sea shells by the sea shore in the shining sun

    What a famous tongue twister it is! And how awfully boring at that!

  • elaina commented on the post, pairs 5 years, 10 months ago

    I have seen pairs, and pairs of shoes on the racks of the shoe store. It amazes me at the beauty of a high heel that hurts my foot like I don’t know what! But you will NEVER see a pair of twins on a rack.

    At least I hope…

  • elaina commented on the post, pairs 5 years, 10 months ago

    there were two pairs, then four. then sixteen, then more than i could count. i’ve not seen multiplication like that every before…it scared me. what do i do now?
