A Pie for Dad

My mother rediscovered a mini pie making set that we had bought quite awhile ago. So I decided I was going to make a pie this evening. Mom mentioned I should try making a Lemon Meringue Pie, so...I looked up a recipe. Now mind you, I have never made a lemon meringue pie before. My great grandma use to make them all the time and they were amazing pies. Of course, anything my great grandma made tasted amazing, she was a natural in the kitchen. So off I started making the lemon meringue pie, specifically for my dad, since he was the one that absolutely loved my grandma's lemon squares and lemon meringue. I learned some knew things that I had never done before while in the process. I came to find out, I had no idea how long it took to get a meringue perfect.

So here is the results, let me know what you think. ^_^ I pray they taste good.

The Inner Fight

Bound to silence with such.
Fighting all thats inside.
Struggling to find willpower.
To keep all well hidden.

If one should know.
Would surely be troublesome.
For not but one,
But many.

I lie in wait.
For what I do not know.
I laugh and cry.
For what they cannot show.

Trapped am I in this.
Drawn out in such state.
Fearing the possibility.
Of the coming of hate.

Surely the world will find.
A cure is sure to come.
To fight off this infection.
Rooted deep inside.

None can loose the deep.
The waters so encased.
Locked so deep inside.
I have never faced.

Found have they a cure.
For this rooted mess.
They tell me this.
There is but one test.

Struggling to the surface.
Fearing the sound of failure.
Fighting even stronger.
To win this cure.

Broken are these chains.
Freed from the coming hate.
Loosed from this inner bond.
Gaining what was ever so far.

I Fought for life.
I Fought for love.
I Fought to win.
I in turn found freedom.

The Sad Facts of Sickness


SICK? Yes!! (ugh)

HAPPY? Yes! (Who knows why)

Those moments in life where you wonder why we sit in the same spot and make noises like "Oooooaoaoh" or "UuUaghhh"(with pout face). Moments we wonder why we're stuck in our rooms all day long while it sounds like everyone is having so much more fun. Of course we know they aren't having any more "fun" then usual, but everything is more tormenting when you're lying face down on your bed, mumbling into your pillow. So, here I sit, bored out of my mind sitting in silence. I have found in the past, the best way to forget you feel to watch a movie, it always distracts for a good 2 hours.
Its these moments though, that I realize how bored you get after reading, typing, play ukulele, playing games, looking at pictures, thinking (never a good thing), staring at the ceiling and last but not least...sleeping. You can only do these things so many times before you want to scream, if you didn't feel so sick. It then makes me wonder, the mentally ill are considered "sick" right? We then stick them in a all white, sometimes padded room. That would drive any sane person to insanity! Think about it, all day, every day you are stuck in that room. No one to talk to or anything to do, you can't even bang your head on a wall. They then proceed to give them pills for their "illness" and then later are astounded as to why they have a drug addiction! Create the problem and the solution. So how much are they helping these "sick" people, when they are driving them to even more insanity?? Makes you wonder, huh?
See, this is what happens when a person gets sick, we think about random, weird things like that. So my solution to not becoming crazy and mentally ill??? Don't get sick in the first place =D
