View Full Version : Holding my breath

21st Sep 2001, 03:48
I watch it unfolding.
I am holding my breath,
and searching for my god
or goddess.
Waiting for war.
I close my eyes,
and try to wipe from my mind
the horror I saw.

We are amid the change.
From my slumber I have been shaken
in this strange, new,
Hurled -
from my life of quiet indulgence,
Into a day that makes no sense.
White knuckled - heart stopping
anger and grief.

I am praying for peace.
knowing that before the terror will cease,
blood will be shed,

I am seeing two sides
go to war.
Knowing that with the future of us all
rides death.
A crime against the state!

I am holding my breath
but I will not hate.

Oh Goddess my Goddess,

18/08/01 - did you predict this abomination on the human race Jazzi (nothing would surprise me here)?

Welcome back to the vitual world where one would hope to never be touched by such callous acts as occured on 11/09/01

23rd Sep 2001, 17:10
Ahhh Jazzi,
Me biting you would be a square up wouldn't it? I am sure I still have your teeth marks on my bum. :D

23rd Sep 2001, 18:02
Wha ... huh? Now then Reddo, you really must explain that one! :eek:

No, Oz, just tell her to publish the photos of the incident :D

Its like this..

She had been having trouble with her underwear, so I was doing up her suspenders and....

On second thoughts I dont think I can explain it.

Your worship is duly noted.

I did not in fact predict, typo as usual. I did however predict in August last year that 77 people would die a religious death or that the number 77 would be significant in the death of many in the name of religion.

Flight 77

It spooked me right out.

How long before someone finds out that the square root of 767 divided by the zip code of the WTC multiplied by the birthday of George W makes 666?

27th Sep 2001, 05:59
it doesn't :D

Rustbucks, bet you forgot to include Georges birth time in the calculation!
