There is something to be said for phuckin up
What, I'm not quite sure
Perhaps the rush of doing what you shouldn't
The defiance of "I don't care"
The bravery of "I'll try anything once"
The curiosity of "I just wanted to see"
Just being "out there" is a high in itself
Everybody likes to get high on something

Stepping to the edge
Looking out over the madness
Compelled to be part of it
No half-assed jump will do
No
It must be a head first swan-dive
Complete with a full turn and three quarter twist
Need to go all the way
Yes, sometime we do dig the madness

Living on the emotional edge
Finding peace in forbidden excitment
Perhaps the confusion feels good
Like sleeping with a Poet
You get so much of everything
Not caring if you can handle it
But you want it

Without caution or pause
We find light on the darkside
Light only we can see
We look for it
Find a way to bathe in it
Smile when we get through it
Seek it again

BE

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl

Thank you for the welcome. I have a question. I am a doctorate student in need of participants for my study. Is it allowable to post a request for study participants. If so, this is the post that would be uploaded:
