I Cry Sometimes when I'm aloneI Cry,Cause I am on my own.The tears I cry are bitter and warm.They flow with life but take no formI Cry because my heart is torn.I find it difficult to carry on. If I had an ear to confiding,I would cry among my treasured friend,but who do you know that stops that long,to help another carry on.The world moves fast and it would rather pass by.Then to stop and see what makes one cry,so painful and sad. And sometimes...I Cry and no one cares about why.

Funny it seems, but by keeping it's dreams,it learned to breathe fresh air. Long live the rose that grew from concretewhen no one else ever cared.

Can you see the pride in the panther • Can You See the Pride In the Panther As he grows in splendor and grace Topling obstacles placed in the way, of the progression of his race. Can You See the Pride In the Pantheras she nurtures her young all alone The seed must grow regardlessof the fact that it is planted in stone.
