This Ole House
 In this house there is a great serenity
       to find myself and my own identity.
   
    I go to my room and for hours I'll stay
       the next thing I know the day has
                   passed away.
   
    I know at some point I must walk out that
      door, and enter a world that's hard
                   to ignore.
   
    It is the pushers and the hypes who run
           our neighborhoods at night
     and the ones you call "friend" has just
                  used you again.
    In this house there is a great serenity,
       and it is in this OLE' house that I
              retrieve back my sanity.

the poem in its short stanzas took the reader on a ride from one end of a spectrum to another. you brought it full circle with lots of uncomforable images along the way. wonderful work. truly talented. it really is an art to writing- its easy to say, i retreat into my house for there's a wild world out there...but that would be merely a statement. What you wrote is moving. touching and quite intriguing...to say the least.
