Topic 280 - What do you think?

What do you think?

Sadly I think people take far too much for granted. Life is a precious gift. Its a wondrous thing. And the Earth is a beautiful world. Yet most ignore its beauty, and see only the dark. It saddens me to see far too many people letting all the bad things in life get them down. Having supportive friends and loved ones is important to endure the tough times. It is friends and family that we should think about often, and should be grateful to have in our lives.

So I think being positive is better than being negative. Sharing, caring, and giving to others. Showing compassion, respect and understanding to others. Doing good, and putting others first. Thinking only about good things is the best way to think. Thinking about all the good stuff that life has to offer is truly the best way to stay positive and overcome any bad junk.

Lastly, I think its hard to connect or find love. I think its difficult for most people to share their feelings, or be honest about how they really feel. Most people are lonely, and in need of love. But those who need love most, are usually too afraid to reach out, too afraid to open their arms to connect with others. Most are too afraid to show affection, too embarrassed or ashamed to admit they are in need of support and love. Yet showing nothing but love, and kindness is good. And every act of compassion and kindness goes a long way to making a better and more wonderful world. Even something as small as giving a hug is a wonderful way to share ones love, and should be embraced by more people. Hug pun intended.*Hugs*

Powerboy and Little Barda, BFF Barda

Powerboy - Siblings

"Are you an only child? Write about your siblings or lack thereof."

Being an abandoned child. Not knowing who my real parents are, or whether I have any blood relatives. This is one of those questions that is both difficult and painful to think about.

But the long and short of it is, I consider a tough girl with a heart of gold named Barda my big sister. My Barda is called Little Barda, even though she is over six feet tall. Guess it's meant as an ironic nickname or something. Or maybe because an older women of similar appearance that once grew up on Apokolips has dibs on the name Big Barda. And yes, I have asked myself if the two are related. Its pretty obvious they are, but that's another topic.

Anyway, before I was 12 years old. I had never had a friend, not a single soul that cared about me. I was so very lonely, and felt very much unwanted. Then one day when some bullies was picking on me. Along came this big tough girl. A girl, who like me was also a loner without any friends or family.

We quickly bonded, and Barda became the first friend I ever made. She was allot more mentally tough than me. I'm not very good at standing up for myself or speaking my mind. Barda is very much the opposite of me in every way. And so she wouldn't take crap from anyone. She took me under her wing, and protected me from the bullies and jerks. She was so very protective and supportive of me, and is truly the greatest reason I was able to endure so much suffering and hardship as a child. We we're each others biggest supporter, and had each others backs when nobody else cared whether we lived or died.

Barda and I may not be biologically related, or not be considered siblings by some. But what else do you call two souls that love each other unconditionally. That don't judge, only accept one another regardless of differences. Two souls that would die for each other, and cares most about each others happiness and well-being. My dear Barda will always be far more than a trusted friend and loyal confidante. Like my little buddy Kirby. And a few other awesome and wonderful friends that I appreciate and love more than words could ever say. She will always be considered family.

Sadly my dear Barda is in a coma at a nearby hospital. I feel so powerless to help her. And due to my own adversities, haven't been able to see her as often as I'd like. For now all I can do is hope and pray that her never say die determination and inner strength will help her survive and make a full recovery soon.

Despite traumatic events separating us for the time being. She will forever be my sister in heart, mind, and spirit. And I know that we both shall be reunited someday. And when that awesome day comes, we will know no more sorrow or pain. Only peace, joy, and happiness forever and always.

Cat Love, Powerboy Hugging Streaky

Topic 272 - Powerboy and Kirby

Do you have any pets? Would you like some (more)? Why / why not?

I love animals. When I first came to Earth America a few years back, I was very lucky to find the best pet in the world. Although he's not so much a pet, as he is a best friend that I love deeply. His name is Kirby. He's the most awesome pug ever. We have a very empathic connection. We understand each other without words. We know how we're feeling, and try to cheer each other up when are feeling blue. He's as loyal as they get. And is a very easy going dog that helps take away any stress or negativity I'm feeling.

Kirby is my first and only pet. So I'm not really an expert on animals, or whatever. But from the time we've been a family. He was the first living soul that didn't judge me, and who opened his heart - accepting me completely. The first being to truly care about me and my well-being. I've received nothing but unconditional love and support from him. And no matter how bad a day gets, coming home to my best dog friend always helps me to feel better.

Unlike some pets that require a ton of time and effort to care for, my little buddy isn't high maintenance. He doesn't run around barking or making all kinds of noise. He's gentle, respectful, and doesn't have a mean bone in his body. He's very much a live and let live kinda animal. Preferring to lay back and relax. Eating, watching tv, and sleeping is his favorite past times. And other than the occasional accident, he is house trained, so doesn't crap on neighbors yards like some less civilized animals.

As to whether I'd want more pets? Even though I'm good with animals. And have found most cats and dogs to very loving and friendly. At this time in my life, other than a pet rock, or virtual pet, I'd have to say no. One little pug is more than a handful already. Also given how emotionally invested I am in Kirby. Long as he needs me, I really don't think I'd ever be able to give the needed love and attention that more pets would need and deserve.

So for now one super huggable pug is the only super animal friend I can handle. But I do highly recommend for anyone with a good home and a big heart, to consider taking a neglected and needy pet into their home. Cause there are so many wonderful cats and dogs who need loving homes and families. And every time you hug your pet, and feel nothing but acceptance and love. Your never regret choosing to open your heart or home to a beloved family member.

Lastly, Kirby and me sends hugs and well wishes to everyone. And here's... My Favorite Pug Picture. It makes me go Aww, and want to hug my pug even more:)

Feeling Sick So Isn't Good.

Talk about a time you were sick.

Curled up in bed, in a fetal position. Every part of my body aches. My head aches. My eyes ache from the light coming into the room. And my stomach aches worst of all. I don't know why I feel so sick. I haven't felt this miserable in years. As a child, I can remember a few times when I had felt really sick. But I never remember feeling anything like this. I feel as if my very life force is being slowly sucked away. I feel so weak... so tired.

All I feel like doing, is sleeping. But I feel too bad to sleep. So laying still, and trying to rest is all I can do. Maybe I could sleep, if only I could stop thinking about how bad I feel. Not think about the possibility, that I could die. Course that was easier said than done. I feel very much like death is calling.

Yet I refuse to give into such dark thoughts. No matter how sucky life can be. Despite all the misfortune, and suffering I've had to endure. I'm far from ready to ever give up on life. There are so many more good things that I want to experience. There is so many things I haven't done yet. So many hearts to touch. So much more compassion, help, and love to give.

God I don't want to die alone. Dying alone, unwanted and unloved has always been my greatest fear. I feel her worrying about me. I don't want her to worry. I am deeply grateful to have found such a kind and caring friend. If not for her, I would have given up on life long ago. My dear friend has saved me in so many different ways.

Not being alone. Being cared about gives me strength. Long as I'm not alone, I don't feel as bad. I actually feel at peace. Whatever happens, I know in my heart that it will all work out for the greater good.

For now, all I can do is rest... and try to sleep. In sleep maybe I can find a little peace, and solace. And have faith that I will get better. And that life will be good again. If not okay today, then tomorrow.

First Letter of Name Meme

The Rules:

-Change my answers to yours.
-Use the 1st letter of your first name to answer each of the following ... they have to be real places, names, things...nothing made up!

-You CAN'T use your name for the boy/girl.

1. What is your name: Adam.

3. Vehicle: Automobile/Airplane. Everyone should totally have flying cars. There so cool.

4. City: Apokolips. Atlantis. Athens, Greece.

5. Boy's Name: Arthur. That's Fonzie's first name, although he never liked being called that for some reason.

6. Girl's Name: Ariel. Hmm, wonder why that name came to mind. Not like some cool girl on my flist loves a certain mermaid character with that name:)

7. Alcoholic drink: I don't drink. But 'A Day At The Beach' sounds good. The orange juice part and the beach part anyway.

8. Occupation: Adventure/Astronaut/Archaeologist/Anthropologist/Animal Vet/Apple Pie Maker.

9. Something you wear: I don't wear an apron... unless I'm cooking. But I do have have an awesome pair of fire-proof apokoliptian pants and a shirt too. Though do think I look better with my shirt off, so its more optional.

17. Word to describe you: Awesome, Adventurous, Adorable... okay shutting up now.

19. Designer Brand: I don't know much about such things, but I've heard of Abercrombie Fitch.

20. Things you do on the weekend: Allot of stuff. Yet watching cartoons, listening to music, playing with my pug, or hanging out online doesn't start with an A. Telling my friends how Awesome they are, does start with an A. So I'll go with that. Your guys are Awesome. And with that I bid you adieu.

Happy Valentine's Day

I've been feeling a little depressed, so haven't been in a very talkative mood. Yet all the positive vibes and happiness I've felt on this day of love - has helped me to shake the winter time blues.

Although I don't think eating tons of candy and chocolate is very healthy. In a world where people take so much for granted. Valentine's Day is truly one of the most beautiful holidays. A day to show kindness and appreciation for one another.

Even in the simplest act of just giving a card, or saying a kind word to a stranger walking down the street. Just saying Happy Valentine's Day lifts my spirit and reminds me that the world is a very amazing and wonderful place, full of many awesome people.

If I had the cash to give a rose to every beautiful soul on my flist, I would. But alas, for now - all I have to give is well wishes, and a hug.

Happy Valentine's Day, have a super weekend, and Big Hugs to all my awesome friends.

Sincerely Your Friend, Adam:)

Topic 268 - The End.

(ooc: Warning - spoilers from Final Crisis #7 about what happens to Darkseid and the New Gods.)

The End. The apocalyptic battle of good versus evil. The destruction of my world. The loss of everyone and everything I once knew. The explosive ending of New Genesis. Apokolips left a barren, obliterated, lifeless graveyard. The final crisis of the Fourth World. The death of the New Gods. That is what Darkseid and his evil brought. A bloody and fiery ending of death, pain, and loneliness.

Powerboy - The Past

"The past is never dead. It's not even past." William Faulkner, Requiem for a Nun.

Death I know not what mysteries it holds. Be they good or bad, I do not fear that eternal unknown. But there is a far greater thing to fear. Being unloved and unwanted - now that darkness and loneliness I fear above all else.

My childhood... my abusive past haunts me. It is too painful to forget, and far too painful to think about. It cuts into into my soul and tries to drag me down into misery and heartbreak. But I refuse to surrender to the past. That dark door is closed. So long as their is breath in my body. Long as I can feel sunshine. Long as I can feel, and hug, and love. Beautiful and wonderful friends to wash away all the past regrets, and sorrows. Loving humans, capable of so much giving.

Feeling the compassion, hope, and everlasting optimism in the hearts and spirits of all those who are good. I can do no less than rise above the past. I can never forget it. I must remember it. I must learn from it. By rejecting hate and darkness. By showing friendship, kindness, and understanding - I will strive to change the present, so that it makes a better and brighter future for everyone.

Topic 261 - Fictional Character?

Which fictional character would you like to be?

One man's fictional character, is another's real character. But if I had to select a character, I'd probably have to go with someone like Sir Lancelot, who was supposed to be one of King Arthur's bravest knights. One of his legendary Knights of the Round Table. Ride my trusty steed. Protect the innocent locals from tyrants and vagabonds. And carry out the occasional rescue of a lovely damsel in distress.

Of course, I'm not sure if I'd call Arthur or any of his knights fictional characters. Yet allot of people do believe that these legendary characters from the dark ages are nothing more than figments of old English storytellers overactive imaginations.

Yet whether parts of the stories or parts of a person's history may be exaggerated or embellished. I am on the side of people who believe that there was a real King Arthur, and a real Camelot. Yet regardless of whether the names or events happens as written, the truly important thing is that the Arthurian legends inspired countless individuals to be more noble, heroic, and chivalrous. They showed that individuals can make a difference, and can make the world a better place. So yeah, fictional or not, I'd like to be more like the awesome heroic knights of a bygone era. Minus the heavy armor or long sword of course:)

Powerboy Sees Good In Everyone, Good

Happy New Year, Everyone

A New Year
classic poem by Mary Carolyn Davies

Here's a clean year,
A white year.
Reach your hand and take it.
You are the builder,
and no one else can make it.

See what it is
that waits here,
whole and new:
It's not a year only,
but a world for you!

I found the above poem in an old poetry book. Yes I read poetry. I'm a very sensitive and thoughtful boy who likes poetry. More people should read poetry, it would be good for them. Or least distract them from doing anything foolish for a few moments, which would be good for others.

Anyway, back to the subject of new year's. Just as the above poem tries to express in simple words, a new year is a new opportunity to make a new world for yourself. It can be a depressed and gloomy world, if one chooses to be depressing and hateful all the time. Or it can be a more sunny and beautiful place if you open your heart and share your kindness and friendship with others. Each person has the power to decide for them self, the type of world they want.

Ever the eternal optimist, I'm looking forward to the new year. And as this wonderful new year is ready to start, I just want to wish my friends list, which is made up of some seriously awesome gals and guys a very Happy New Year. Despite any badness that may have happened over the past year. The year is over. Try not to look backward, look forward. Look towards a better and brighter tomorrow. Look forward to a new year, filled with new hopes, new dreams, and new opportunities.

PS - You all rock and totally deserve nothing but much happiness and many hugs from the ones you love in 2009.So Best Wishes and Happy New Year Everyone.

Sincerely Your Very Huggable Friend, PB:)

If not, remember that the best gifts come from the heart, so giving your kindness, generosity, and friendship to others is the greatest gift of all.

For all those who are feeling blue and down for whatever reason, I send many positive vibes and well wishes your way in hopes that tomorrow and the new year to come will only get better and better.

And with all my heart and soul, I truly wish that everyone has nothing but good health, much happiness, and nothing but love in 2009. Cause you guys deserve nothing but the best. Sneaks a hug to anyone that wants or needs one.*Hugs*

Come What May

Five minutes in the life of Powerboy.

Five minutes in the life of your muse.

It was hard to believe that he was just five minutes away from having lunch at the Luger Steak House. Rated New York's #1 Steakhouse, and said to be one of the best places to eat on Earth. It was certainly hard to get into. He'd made the reservation over two years ago. Jeez Marie, he hadn't really thought it would take so long. But like they say, all good things come to those who wait.

So much had happened over the past two years. Epic love. Epic death. Epic rebirth. And far too many adventures. So much had changed. For good or ill he couldn't say. However was certain that the trials and tribulations of life had made him a far stronger and far better person.

Yet the empathetic teen really didn't want to lament all the loses... all the pain and heartache... all the sadness and misfortune he'd had to endure over the past years. Despite it all, he still had a deep love of life and an enthusiastic spirit, open to experience all the wondrous things life had to offer. There was far too much goodness, joy, and love in the world to ever feel blue for very long. Far to many wonderful friends that make life worth living, and give one the strength to endure whatever challenges one faces.

Adam frowned for a moment at the thought of so many others worrying about so many different things. Some important. Some not really important. He wished everyone could take time out of their lives, to enjoy the simpler things, to enjoy what they do have. And not waste so much precious time worrying about things beyond their power to change.

For now he wasn't worrying about anything else. He was going to enjoy a nice peaceful time at a nice relaxing restaurant. Feeling all the jubilation and happiness from all those around him in such good spirits. He knew despite having to wait so long for this day. He knew it was well worth the wait.

Powerboy - What do you hope for?

What do you hope for?

I hope for way too many things. Far too many to ever come true. Guess that's the same for most people. But alas, hopes and dreams - keep many a soul going, no matter how bad things may get.

So I do have tons of hopes and dreams. And given that I am positive and hopeful by nature. I'd say the main one is that tomorrow will be better than today. Despite any bumps in the road, or any crap stuff that tends to happen. I remain ever hopeful that things will work out for those I know, and the Universe as a whole. That it all will work out for the best as they say.

Of course, I know we can't always get what we want. That's something everyone has to learn. Life can't always be happy or sunny. A little rain is needed. Floods and hurricanes, not so much. Yet, no matter how bad things get, if we never give up. Never stop trying to do better. And most importantly, never lose hope. Then no matter how bad things look, happy endings are always possible.

So above all else, what I hope for most, is for all those I care about to be happy, and loved. And due to my faith in the power of love, and belief in the Source of love to conquer all hate and injustice. I have nothing but eternal faith that everything will end happily.

Locked to the Awesome Jubilee

I haven't been feeling very talkative lately. Plus I haven't been feeling comfortable sharing my emotions or personal thoughts. I'm feeling a bit depressed, and unsure of myself. Afraid to say anything for fear of rejection.

I know you will accept me no matter what. But others not so much. So until I get my confidence back up, I'll start with this private post to you, the girl I respect and value more than all others. Your the closest friend I've ever had. And despite still being confused about allot of things. One thing I am sure of is you. What we have is special, and our deep connection means more to me than life itself. I'm so thankful to have you as a friend, and to have you in my life. Your kindness and understanding has helped me through a really bad time. You lifted me up, and gave me the strength to carry on. You gave me hope in life, and more compassion and support than I could have ever asked for. Thank you for all you've done, and thank you for making my life better just by being you.

Now I'm sure I'll be embarrassed by this later. And goodness knows I'm probably not very good at such things. But here is a poem of friendship, to humbly try to put into words how you make me feel, and how much I value the friendship we have. And before the poem, I can't help but sneak a big hug from the most beautiful girl in the world.*Gives Jubilee a Big Hug.*

by Adam Dark

For accepting me
For showing me love
For taking away
All my loneliness
All my despair.
Thank you for caring.

I love you
Because you have done
More than any other
Could have done
To make me feel
Laughter and love
Giving joy and fun
Happiness in the sun.

Thank you so much
For showing the way
To friendship, love
And true happiness.

You have helped me
More than words can say.
Without a touch
Without a word
Without even asking
You saved me Jubilee
Just by being yourself.

Maybe thats what
Being a friend means,
Caring and loving
Supporting and giving
Expecting nothing
Just giving
All you have
Out of love.

The best girl a boy
Could ever know.

I thank God everyday

Would you make a good spy?

Would you make a good spy? Why or why not?

I would say no. And I do think spy is such a negative word with images of untrustworthy people doing bad things, such as betraying their country, or stealing secrets from a rival. So if I was a spy, I'd be a good-guy spy and not a bad-guy spy, fighting to save the world from the forces of evil. And would prefer being called a secret agent, or private detective. Something cool like that. Yet regardless of being a spy, agent, detective, monitor, watcher, whatever - I really doubt I'd be good at carrying on espionage or similar work of a secret nature. Think I'd need a whole lot of guidance from others fare more knowledgeable of such things before I could become good.

Also only being a teenager, and given teens so aren't taken seriously like adults would be. My youth and inexperience would limit how good a spy I'd be. I also stand out like a sore thumb, and talk a bit too much. If I was spying, people would know it. Giant neon lights would be pointing arrows towards me, so people would have to be pretty stupid not too notice I was spying. Lucky for me, I'm not interested in digging up dirt or trying to find out bad junk about anyone. Actually, the more I think about it, I gotta say I'd suck at being a spy. So to sum things up - no, its highly doubtful that I would make a good one.

This is no doubt one of those questions that would be best asked when I'm older. For now, I'm happy with just being a care-free, happy go lucky kid. Unless I get dragged into any crazy adventures by friends or foes. I'll leave all the danger, intrigue, mystery, romance to others far more suitable and capable of such things.

Successful Negotiation

What are the five steps to a successful negotiation?

I don't think there is just five steps to a successful negotiation. Or that anything one does can guarantee that something won't go wrong. Even if one does everything right, failure can still result due to outside forces beyond ones control.

But I have found that there are some simple respectful actions that can help one succeed at negotiations. Basic things that can help at winning what you want in life or even more importantly at winning new friends.

1) Smile. If your smiling, that will lighten the mood and show that your not angry or hostile to whoever your with. Nobody wants to be around or negotiate with anyone who is not in a good mood. Does anyone want to be around someone who is always negative and hateful. Of course not. Those type of people are stress inducing and put everyone in a depressing mood. So just the simple act of smiling will not only make you feel better, but help show the world that your a positive person open to friendship and fun to be around.

2) Look everyone in the eyes. Whoever your talking to, it is always a sign of respect to look them in the eyes. In doing so, you say I respect you. You are equal in my eyes. If the other person feels respected, then they are more open to listen to what you have to say. And far more likely to show respect to you in return.

3) Compliment. Everyone loves to be complimented. And a true lady or gentlemen is always courteous and polite. So even the tiniest compliment can go a long way to breaking the ice and showing that your not hateful or a uncivil creep to whomever your talking to.

4) Listen. Listening to someone else, and actually trying to see things from their point of view is something most people have trouble doing. Yet if you truly want to be successful at negotiations or making friends, you have to be a good listener. You also have to be non-judgmental and tolerant of those with differing view points. For nobody agrees on everything, and nobody is right about everything they think they believe in. If that makes sense. So basically if your able to look at any problem or issue from all sides, and not let any stupid bias or prejudice get in the way of making a reasoned and rational decision. Then it is possible to not only negotiate, but to do so fairly.

5) Compromise. In relationships, as in successfully negotiating for what you want, there has to be compromise. You can't expect to get everything, just as the other side can't expect to get everything they want. If one side is not satisfied with the outcome - hate, hostility, and bitterness would continue, and only lead to future problems. Having all the issues worked out and having all sides happy with the results allows for friendship and peaceful relations to prosper. So a compromise that is mutually beneficial to everyone is always the best possible outcome.

Powerboy believes in Happy Endings.

"That's something I think is growing on me as I get older: happy endings." Alice Munro

I like the idea of the whole happily ever after thing. And am sure the older I get, the more I'll hope for it to happen. But given my not so good childhood, and several years of seeing some really bad junk happen to good people that deserved better. Sadly I've learned the hard way that your more likely to be struck by lightning than get a happy ending. Whether it's wrong place wrong time, bad luck, or fate. Allot of good people don't get happy endings. It's like winning the lottery or more likely not winning it. It's a one in a million kind of thing.

Yet I'm an eternal optimist, so I do believe that no matter how many bad things happen. Tomorrow offers a new chance for good things to happen. No matter how dark it gets, a new dawn always rises.

It's just a matter of not giving up or losing hope. Everyday is a new day. Everyday offers new opportunities to live and love. Everyday offers new chances to find happiness. So never giving up on happy endings no matter how bad things get is a good thing. And regardless of what the future holds, just being thankful for the happy moments with loved ones should be cherished above all else.

Individual who has scared you.

Discuss an individual who has scared you.

[Locked to those who know about Apokolips and Darkseid.]

In another place and time. Years ago, yet sometimes it feels like yesterday. I grew up on a world called Apokolips. I was just a child in a very dark and deadly place. Pretty much everyone and their mother on that hellhole was evil and very scary.

Out of all the evil monsters that seemed to exist for no other reason but destroy and be scary while doing it. The one who scared me most would have to be Darkseid. Most powerful of all New Gods. He wasn't as creepy as Desaad or Granny. But being the ruler, and dictator whom all had to serve or die. Darkseid was responsible for all the badness and despair that the inhabitants of Apokolips was forced to suffer. He's the one that made the abuse and cruelty mandatory. The one who instilled fear and terror into the hearts of all. Anyone who wasn't scared of Darkseid was a fool... usually a soon to be dead one. One either followed the Will of Darkseid, or they died, and with them their family and friends.

He is the one being in all existence that truly scares me. And what scares me most, is that he actually has the cosmic level powers to back up whatever destruction he wants to do. He has the power to destroy everything good. It is frightening to know that such a heartless being with no mercy or compassion exists. And exists with the sole purpose to make all suffer and surrender to the will of Evil. Darkseid is darkness. He is everything that is bad and wrong.

So I'd be lying if I said I wasn't scared of Darkseid. Fortunately there also exists light and hope, and love to destroy the powers of darkness and hate. So I may fear evil, but I have faith that goodness is far more powerful, and will triumph in the end.

It's your birthday! If anything were possible, what would be your perfect way to celebrate?

I don't know. Today is my seventeenth birthday. Yet I have no way of knowing what a perfect way to celebrate would be. My experience is very much non-existent on the subject of birthdays. So what is or isn't expected, I just don't know.

I never had a birthday before. No birthday party. No cake. Not even a card or simply someone saying happy birthday. Cause where I was from, such things was not celebrated. There was no respect or value for human life. What the individual needed or wanted did not matter. In the oppressive and tyrannical rule of one whom thought himself greater than God, there was no individual rights or freedoms. Just much suffering and misery. So there was no celebrations of anything, other than him, and what he wanted. All others was made to feel worthless, like they didn't matter.

Thankfully I'm in America now. Home of the free, land of the brave. A place that values individual liberties and offers endless opportunities to live in peace and happiness. Just being alive, and free in such a beauty and wondrous world like Earth gives much to be grateful for in itself. Living in a free land, with so many kind and wonderful people, makes everyday like a birthday. So guess I could say just being alive and well, and having a life with friends that care is truly reason enough to celebrate. No birthday celebration is needed to let me know how lucky I am.

Laid Back

Happy 4th of July Weekend

This was the first Independence Day in America that I've had the chance to celebrate. And I am very thankful to have had such a wonderful friend as Jubilee to experience and enjoy the occasion. I truly loved the fireworks display over the East River in New York. The skyline was filled with layer upon layer of pyrotechnic wonder. It was such a very beautiful sight to watch.

On an odd note, Nathan's Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest on Coney Island was interesting. While I don't get all the hot dog eating, or why it would be considered a sport. Or how a human being could even eat like 60 hot dogs in a matter of minutes. Guess is one of those competitive nature things most humans have to show their better or whatever.

Regardless of any unusual activities and strange ways people like to pass their time. It was good to feel so many positive vibes from those who love freedom. Despite any flaws or shortcomings, it is good to see so many take a moment to show their gratitude for living in such a great country. So many in distant lands are not as fortunate, or blessed to live in such a awesome place. Hopefully Americans will never take their rights and liberties for granted. For sadly, once lost, individual freedoms and universal respect for human rights are hard to regain.

Anyway, this holiday was very fun and entertaining. I do hope all who read this had nothing but a peaceful and super time with those they care most for. Happy 4th of July Weekend everyone.*Hugs*

Powerboy - Respect

What does respect mean to you? I'm in the Superhero business. Though it is called Adventuring for some reason. Guess it sounds cooler or something. Anyway, most heroes understand the importance of being respectful to others. And all who are good have great respect for life, nature, and the world at large. All people who work to make the world a better and brighter place are shining examples that should be admired and respected.

Being respected clearly beats disrespect or being treated badly. Respect to me involves being civil and tolerant of those whom are different. One should always try to respect different cultures, and those with differing beliefs. I am always courteous and respectful to all I meet. Being well mannered and treating others the way I want to be treated.

Sadly some think that respect only applies to people and not animals, or places. The world truly is a very beautiful place. Respecting its beauty and not trying to destroy it is a noble thing. All should be reminded that besides showing respect to others by not cheating, lying, or doing other bad things. One should show respect to animals. Abusing and neglecting any creature is wrong. Likewise harming the habitat wildlife depends upon is wrong. Not littering shows respect for the environment. Not dumping junk into the streams, rivers, and oceans also shows one is respectful for mother nature and all the living beings that depend upon a healthy Earth to live.

The hope for a better tomorrow depends upon those who are good showing kindness and respect to all. Only by showing such goodness can one overcome the hate and evil of those whom know no respect for anyone or anything. So respect, like friendship and unconditional love is a very good thing to give.

Is there a situation when it is appropriate to be unkind?

I'm kind. Yet sadly the world is not always so kind in return. But just because some fail to be good like they should. It doesn't mean I'm gonna change who I am or stop being a nice person. Nothing will stop me from staying positive. Or from always having good manners or following the Golden Rule - treat others the way you want to be treated.

Humans are very emotional beings. Often their passions get the better of them. Too often reason and good judgment goes out the window and people make complete fools of them self. But however others feel or act. That does not change what is good or bad; what is right or wrong. I know its not always easy to be nice and kind, especially if someone is acting like a total jerk. Some make it harder to be civil or kind. But just as an animal that has been treated badly will respond in kind. Sometimes even biting the hand that feeds it. Showing kindness to such lost souls is still the right thing.

I'm no Pollyanna. I don't see the world through rose colored glasses. I've seen too much misery and suffering to ever believe it is any sort of utopia. It's not what it should be. Most people are lost. Lost in a cold and cruel world. Unable to find meaningful connections. Unable to share their true feelings with even those they care for most. No compassion for the stranger. No understanding or trust of those who speak different languages or have different cultural beliefs. There is too much greed, too much selfishness, too much materialism. Too much about money and power. And too little about love or finding the Source of real happiness. Maybe it never will be a kinder and more loving place. Yet it never will get better if we fail to show compassion and kindness to everyone, whether they deserve it or not.

I understand why others see things the way they do. But for me, there is no situation that could cause me to be unkind in words or deeds to any living creature...man or beast. Unkind is simply another way of saying being cruel or hateful. Like the strange human sayings beating a dead horse... or kicking someone while their down... or dancing on someones grave. I do not understand who came up with such sick or demented idioms. But I do understand that they are not just wrong, but are evil and mean. One can sugar coat bad things all they want, but bad is bad, unkind is unkind, and there is never a just or good reason to do bad things.

Compassion, empathy, kindness, and love is the way of those who are good and just. Unkindness and cruelty is always wrong. It is always wrong to be cruel to animals. And it is always wrong to cause others to suffer. Just as it is pathetic and very wrong to take any satisfaction in the misery or suffering of others. Cruelty is such a sad thing. Those who are cruel lack compassion and empathy for others. Without the ability to care for others, there can be no happiness or love. And what can be sadder than that. A life without love, isn't any kind of life at all. I reject hatred and unkindness in all its guises. And seek kindness and friendship, and embrace all that is beautiful and good in life.

So the answer is no. There is never a time or reason to be unkind. We always have the power to control our emotions. We have the free will to choose to always be good and kind. We always have the power to reject hatred and cruelty. And it is through ones kindness and love that everyone has the power to make the world a better place.

Powerboy Sees Good In Everyone, Good

What Type of Weather Are You?

You Are Lightning

Beautiful yet dangerous

People will stop and watch you when you appear

Even though you're capable of random violence

You are best known for: your power

Your dominant state: performing

Not sure about this meme. How is being caring, romantic, picking flowers, or snuggling under covers equal dangerous electrical storms? Eh, whatever. Lightning is cool. Long as you aren't struck in the butt by it, that is:)

Anyway, posting the meme was just an excuse to send hugs and well wishes to my friends list. As May comes to an end, I do hope the new month is a wonderful one. And regardless of any problems or stressful junk, always try to find time to enjoy life with those that make you feel good. To that end, I do hope everyone has a great day, and super awesome weekend.*Hugs*

Powerboy - Everything passes.

"Everything passes. Nobody gets anything for keeps. And that's how we've got to live." Haruki Murakami.

Nothing lasts forever. It never should.

Be it a story, a song, or a life. All things created, serve a purpose, have there moment in time, then passes on. For nothing that lives ever stays the same. Time keeps on going on. Everything that exists has to accept that they have their time to be, to do their thing, and hopefully live to the fullest. And not live it worrying about the end of the story called life. The end will come on its own, and no fretting will change its day or hour. All one can do is live for today, for the boundless opportunities that await. Search for good things. Look for happiness and joy. Find meaning and purpose in life. Find friendship and love.

Despite having a pessimism born of despair, loneliness, and much abuse beat into me growing up. I don't listen to the nay sayers. I don't get dragged down by all the doom and gloom types that see only badness, and know not the wonderful feeling that comes from hope and love. Guess no matter how bad things get. No matter what junk happens. I am an eternal optimist. I accept change as something good. I embrace the future with hope and optimism. I reach for the stars. For that is the best way to live. Nothing good is accomplished from getting dragged down by the past. There will always be bad things that happen along life's journey. Things that can't be changed or undone, no matter how much one would wish it to be otherwise.

Dwelling on the bad... on the negative accomplishes nothing. So yeah, I try to keep a positive attitude no matter what. Like my past... my childhood wasn't a bed of roses or hugging cute animals. It was a very crap experience. But its over. And I'm glad that my gloomy past is far behind me. That its nothing more than a nightmare that I thankfully awoken from.

Whether I'm respected, valued, or appreciated. Or hated and rejected by those that can't get past misconceptions or personal stereotypes and prejedice. I can't help where I was born or what I look like, or any of the crap that happened to me growing up. I can't help any stupid mistakes I've made either. I'm all too human that way. I'm still a kid. I have allot to learn. I've learned so much over the past couple of years. But it is only a fraction of what is out there. Just a small taste of what the world has to offer. But regardless of time, or what I learn, one thing will never change. My heart. I will always be a hero. Always put the needs of others first. Always help all that need it. I'm not gonna apologize for being nice or kind or treating everyone with respect. That is who I am. I'm a kindhearted and good boy that loves everyone. And it is love that gives my the power to go on. The power to endure all the pain and heartache.

Love gives me the power to live life with a song in my heart. To embrace all the good, and work past the bad. My life is a tune that changes over time. Sometimes its a sad tune, for pain and sorrow is a part of life. But sometimes it has its more uplifting moments of laughter and love. And knock on wood, it is a tune that only gets better with time, then ends on a high note.

Hugs to some very wonderful friends:)

[Locked to jubes_paf, girlfromkrypton, & boywonder3]

If you can see this, it means that your someone I feel comfortable enough to share my deepest feelings with, and whom has been very kind to me over the past months. You may not be family, but are close enough.

I never had a family. I'm still new to the friends thing. So am still unsure of myself or whether I'm doing enough to show how much I care.

Anyway, I'm not gonna get all mushy. Well maybe just a little. But I just wanna say thanks for being my friend. You mean the world to me. I regret not having anything to give your to express how much I value and appreciate you. Yet my friendship and eternal gratitude will always be yours.

Lastly, I do hope your having a peaceful and good Memorial Day Weekend. And I send many positive vibes your way, and wish you the best of luck over the coming month and summer. May your days be filled with nothing but sunshine and much happiness.*Hugs*

Hugs and love, and a Meme.

I just called to say I love you.

And I mean it from the bottom of my heart.

I just called to say I love you.

I just called to say how much I care.

I just called to say I love you.

And I mean it from the bottom of my heart.

YouTube - Stevie Wonder Song - I just called to say I love you.Collapse )

Meme about personal stuff and some hugs cause I care.

What was the last thing you dreamed about? God of Evil - Darkseid. At some crap place in New York. Only strangely he was human, and wearing a white suit like a business man. But was otherwise his same jerky self. Dark Side is everything. You are nothing. Live for Dark Side. Die for Dark Side. Blah, blah, blah. It was a bad dream, so I'm trying to forget it.

Are you dating the last person you kissed? No. But I still love her very much.

What are you like when you're drunk? I've never been drunk. But am sure I'd be much with the wacky. Singing stupid songs might also be a possibility. Not that I already don't act crazy when I'm not drunk, so there might not be much difference actually.

Do you drink milk straight from the carton? No. I also open doors for girls. And say please and thank you. I'm good manners boy.

Who knows a big secret about you? Not counting God who knows everything... or Darkseid who knows more about me than even I do a few close friends know my secrets and still accept and care about me, which I'm most grateful for.

How long is your hair? Longer than most boys. Though not as long as most girls. And no I'm not cutting my bangs. Long hair is good. Saves on the hair cuts also.

Do you like Batman? He's not the most huggable guy. But I like Bats. He's a living legend... an immortal icon of all that is just and good. And his no guns, and no kill policy is a good example for the younger heroes to follow.

Who was the last person who told you they loved you? I never had parents or even a loving guardian growing up. So I don't remember anybody ever using the word love and me in the same sentence. Think I'm thankful just to have somebody say they care.

Do you like anyone now? I like all my friends allot. Speaking of which, hugs to my awesome friends.

What did you have for breakfast? Burnt toast. Orange Juice.

Is your birthday on a holiday? No. But it's three days after all the fireworks and flag waving.

Can you cook? Think I can cook. Least if making peanut butter sandwiches count:)

Did you have a nap today? Long cat naps are good. Pug naps are also of the good.

What was the reason you got in trouble last? Per usual, something I said being taken the wrong way. That's a good reason why I should just shut up, smile, and look pretty. I could avoid so much more trouble that way.

What do you wear more, jeans or sweats? Jeans, though I sleep in sweats.

When is your birthday? July 7

Where did you get the shirt you're wearing? It was a present from Jubi.

Do you have any regrets? Too many. But that won't stop me from trying my best not to mess up ever again. But I already know I will, and I regret that too.

Do you use an alarm clock? No. I have a good inner clock, so usually know what time it is and can wake to the exact minute I want. I can wake even sooner if I'm having a bad dream.

Where was your default My Space picture taken? What's a My Space?

What color is your favorite shoe? Black. Okay, so all my shoes are that color. But hey, it's a good color.

Who would you like to see right now? My friends. But virtual hugs and well wishes will have to do for now.*Hugs and well wishes*

Would you rather sleep with someone, or alone? Someone special. Cuddling feels good.

What school do you go to? I don't go to school. Never have.

Last person you laid in bed with? My wonderful pug dog thinks he's a person, so I'll go with Kirby as to not offend him.

Ever had braces? Ever had braces what?

Are you afraid of the dark? Only if I was on a hell world or dark alley. New York has some really dark alley's. Uh, I mean of course not. Boys aren't supposed to be afraid of the dark. After all there's nothing in the dark that isn't there in the light. Usually.

Do you miss someone today? I miss someone everyday. A few someone's even more. I'm sorry that school, work, and the general crapiness of life prevents friends from spending as much time together. But they know how much I care for them, so we don't need words or to see each other every day. Our bond transcends everything and our friendship will exist forever and ever.

Who's your last text message from? Think I'd need a text message device to get a text message.

What's your favorite commercial at the moment? All commercials with that talking Gecko is always made of awesome.

Do you like bananas? Not as much as monkeys or chimps. But yes, very much so.

Do you support the Red Sox? I think that was supposed to have an 's' at the end. And red socks are good. So are white socks.

What do you wear to bed? When I first came to Earth I wore nothing. Despite claims to the contrary I do not sleep in the buff. I wear black sweats.

What was the last pageant you attended? I've heard of such things. But never been to one. Never even seen one.

Do you trust people? Yes. Most people are trustworthy. With the sad exception of those bad people who are not.

Is there someone you want to fight? No. I very much prefer hugging to fighting.

Who is the last baby that you held? Do baby kittens or puppies count? Not that some people don't act like babies. But no, other than hugging girls who are very much not babies, but are called Baby for some reason, I've never held a baby. And do think I'll leave such things to baby sitters and baby kissing politicians.

Do you have any expensive jewelry? I have a ring and gold medallion that are not really gold, or jewelry, but being advance alien technology are far more valuable in life saving ways... and I have a shiny belt buckle.

Have you ever applied for a job where the waitresses wear shorty shorts and halters? Not sure what a halter is. But no can't say I have. I've never even applied for a job. Applying for a job requires something called a resume, and work experience. But how can you get work experience, if you've never worked. It's a time paradox of some sort.

Do you know what you want to do with your life? Despite one hell of a life so far. Hell pun intended. I'm only 16, so haven't a clue what I wanna do over the coming years. But personally am looking to find some love and happiness. Preferably not dying again for a long long time would be good. And much hugging of friends and telling them how much I appreciate there friendship is likewise on my to-do-list.*Hugs*

Powerboy 3AM

It's 3 AM. Like my super dog Kirby, I should be asleep. Laying cozily in my soft bed. Dreaming about my special girl. Or something equally pleasant. Like dreams of flying through the beautiful clouds without a care in the world. Instead, I can't sleep. Too many things on my mind. Too many fears and worries.

Insomnia really sucks. I'm not sure what humans do when they have trouble sleeping. Counting sheep doesn't work. Although watching tv does seem to be a good way to pass the time. It is very wasteful and unproductive. But is a good way to distract oneself from their own problems, which is a good to reduce stress. But usually all that is on so late, appears to be things called infomercials. They are suppose to be informative commercials selling products some people are apparently in need of. Yet what they offer, I'm in no need of. I'm young, so don't need anything to make me look younger. I have a full head of hair. I'm not over-weight. I'm already in great physical shape, so am in no need of any exercise program. And lets not even get into the commercials selling pills that are supposed to enhance a certain part of the male anatomy. Again, do think my male anatomy is in no need of such things.

Anyway, late night infomercials are of no use to me. Re-runs of old tv shows are far more enjoyable to watch. I especially like watching the classic ones about 1950's America. Such as, I Love Lucy never fails to entertain me. And I recently discovered a show called Happy Day's. The theme song is always fun to sing. And Fonzie is like the coolest character ever. After I watch such positive and uplifting shows, I feel better. The trials, tribulations, and triumphs of others. The power of friendship and goodness flows through them. Even if they are only fictional, they remind me that I shouldn't worry about things beyond my control. Inspiration can be found wherever one looks. I can learn from the Fonz to stay cool, and not worry so much. Stressing won't take away the problems. Staying calm, cool, and collective is good advice when facing any challenge, big or small. And at three in the morning, going to sleep, and getting some rest, so I'm ready to face the new day well rested is all I have the power to do. Far as anything else. Whatever life brings, only time will tell.

Soulful, Soulful Powerboy

Powerboy - Three Things

Name three things that you're looking forward to in the near future and why.

Only being sixteen, I've never really been one to make any particular plans or goals for the future, near or otherwise. I've always been more with living in the here and now, and letting the future take care of itself.

But that doesn't actually answer this topic. So I'll have to come up with three things I'd look forward too. So lets me think, I've always wanted to go to Hawaii. It looks like such a beautiful and serene place. To walk on the sandy beaches, and feel the breeze of the Pacific ocean blowing in my face. It would be a most peaceful and enjoyable experience. So thats certainly one thing I'd like to do some day.

A second thing I'd look forward to in the future, is visiting Paris, France. It's supposed to be one of the most romantic cities in the world. And even though I am currently single, so without a loving soul mate to share the experience. Hopefully by the time I do visit Paris, I will no longer be unloved or unwanted.

Which I guess would bring me to the third thing I look forward to. I look forward to the day when I have a deep and meaningful relationship with a girl that loves me, as much as I love her. Finding true love with my soulmate. That is the greatest thing I look forward to, and the thing I hope to find. Then no matter what challenges or difficulties I face. I shall feel truly blessed, and with the power of her love, I'll be forever happy and at peace with life.

Powerboy - Moving Moment

"Do not the most moving moments of our lives find us without words?" Marcel Marceau.

Yeah, I would say the most moving moments of ones life can find one without words. There are moments so powerful, they can change ones life. Even chance encounters without words can have the power to forever change ones destiny. I haven't been around that long. I'm just a teenager, so am sure there is allot more life to live, and crazy adventures to be had. Heck, just over the past couple of years. I've been fortunate or not so fortunate as the case may be, to experienced my share of moving moments.

I could write about allot of things. The agony of grieving. The devastation and despair that comes from losing everything that matters. But such things are not the best of moments I'd choose to reflect upon right now. So think I will just reflect on a wonderful moment. The first time I fell in love. I was only 13. I was nervous as all hell, and didn't know what to say or do. Not that I was in the position to actually say or do anything. I was truly speechless. I was blown away by her beautiful soul. I'd never felt such beauty, compassion, or love of life. The moment didn't need words, or to hear her speak. For her soul spoke volumes. Just to be near her, made me feel good. Made me feel love. She changed my life without even knowing it. She is my guiding light. An Angel that shinned the light of hope and love onto my life. She inspired me to reach for the stars. She inspired me to show love, to never give up, and to always try to make the world a better place.

Come What May


I don't understand why anyone gets mad. No matter what, I try to always remain calm, cool, and collected. I've found that becoming angry, mad, blowing ones top accomplishes nothing. It's not cool to over-react to any situation. Getting mad certainly doesn't do anything to make things better. Getting mad would just toss fuel on the fire. Losing ones temper is very self-destructive and being mad is an ugly emotion. So keeping my cool, no matter what crap happens is always what I try to do. We can never control how others will react or respond to anything. But one can control how they respond. Always responding in a empathetic, rational, and understanding way is the best course of action.

Interacting with humans is very much like the weather. During a storm, taking cover is a reasonable thing to do. Only a fool would stay out in a storm. Finding shelter and letting things calm back down is the smartest action to take. When the sun is out again, and life is once more calm, then it's safe to come back out and play. Just as stormy weather usually passes quickly. If one is mad, count to ten, or a hundred, or whatever number is needed. Take a break and get away from whatever is upsetting you. Do something that is relaxing or that makes you feel good. Your usually find that whatever was upsetting you wasn't worth the stress.

It's best not to sweat all the small stuff. Life is too short to be wasted being all negative or angry. It's best not to let anyone or anything get under your skin to the point where your down. No matter how much we'd wish for things to be otherwise, bad things are going to happen every so often. For life or some of the people living it are not always sunny or good. Yet during the stormy times, getting angry, frustrated, or mad is counter-productive and usually does more harm than good. Keeping a positive attitude, and not letting anything get you down is the best way to live. Embrace the beauty and wonder that life has to offer. Life is full of endless opportunities. If one never gives up, never loses hope, then life can be good. Clear skies will come out again.

TM Topic 223

"I swear I didn't put those up. Well not half of them." Powerboy and his pug dog Kirby looks on at the wall covered in Supergirl photos. "But I'm pretty sure who did. Father Box?"

A male robotic voice replies telepathically to the super teen from the hellish world of Apokolips. "Yes, Master."

"Not that I don't like the Wall of Kara. But what's the deal with all these pictures of my girlfriend?"

Simple and to the point, Father Box responds. "I've been testing your Memory Photo Copy Machine. Also as seen on numerous Earth television programs, placing images of a loved one on the wall of your home is used to express great affection and love." Tilts his head and looks onward. "Good job F.B. If one image shows affection, then dozens and dozens more will definitely show how much I love my girl."

The fifteen year old alien levitates over to the section of his home that contains various advanced Apokoliptian devices. He hadn't eaten, so asked Father Box for a healthy snack. "Apple." A fresh apple appears in his hand, and while he's eating, another photo of Supergirl comes from the futuristic copier. "Hmm..." As he looks at it, see's that it only made a very blury image of her eye. "Kara is the apple of my eye. But I see the machine still has a few kinks that need worked out."

As Adam floats back over the wall and gazes at the pictures of the girl he loves, an old love song pops into his head. "You're the apple of my eye. You're cherry pie. You're cake and ice cream. You're the girl of my dreams..."

Father Box interrupts his singing. "I'll re-calibrate the device. However the primary difficulty appears to be in the device reading not only your conscious thoughts, but also subconscious thoughts."

Sighs, and looks over toward Kirby. "Maybe we should go with something simpler. Like a thought controlled tv remote. Get rid of primitive button pushing, and just change the channels and turn the tv on or off with ones mind. That would be a far easier device to create. But the inventing of stuff can wait. Kirby needs to go for a walk. Then I'll pop back over to my girl's place. Help protect her from any super-villain attacks."

"If I'm lucky, I'll hopefully get a little quality time with my sweetheart. Course with my luck, she'll probably be off hanging out with friends or doing the hero stuff. So I'll end up cat-sitting Streaky, and sleeping on the couch. She so needs a back massager built into her sofa by the way. Maybe I'll mention that sometime. A mind controlled Pooper Scooper for Streak wouldn't hurt either. After all, a nice boy can only be expected to do so much."

Happy Easter

Happy Easter to everyone. Much like most Earth holidays, I'm not completely sure what this Easter is all about. But it apparently has much too do with painting eggs, hunting colorful eggs, and eating chocolate bunnies. All things that I find to be very entertaining. Well maybe painting things is more messy than fun. But it is also filled with much peace, good-will, and tasty snacks. So all in all, a very nice holiday.

Also here is a 'What Holiday Are You Quiz', which says I'm most like Easter, so I'm posting it on Easter:)

You Are Easter

You are an optimistic, hopeful, and genuinely sweet person.
Sensitive and affectionate, you are easily touched.
You love nature, animals, and anything cute or cuddly.
For you, every day is a new chance - no matter what happened yesterday.

What makes you celebrate: Almost anything. You love most holidays and celebrations.

At holiday get togethers, you do best as: The peacemaker. You can prevent any squabbles that might break out.

On a holiday, you're the one most likely to: Remember to include everyone

Anyway, whatever Easter tradition you celebrate or don't celebrate. I do hope everyone has a super holiday filled with much happiness and joy with the ones they care for most of all. Have an Egg-stra special day.*Hugs*

I don't like headlines. Lately you'd think evil villains was writing the stories, and intentionally trying to damage the reputations of good men and women. Like the negative stories about the Justice League and other heroes. You'd think the million times Superheroes have saved the world, would earn some gratitude and appreciation. But apparently, its what have you done for me lately. Not that being a newbie, I've personally had much experience with such things. But some of those I know, have had far too many headlines. And from what I've read, have found them to be very inaccurate to say the least. Most stories I've found what was reported to be a load of bull crap. Getting the facts straight, or being truthful about what really happened, doesn't seem to be a top priority when writing stories these days. It appears to be more about writing the most sensational headline, to grab a readers attention, and get the public to buy their paper or watch their show. Even when something isn't really news worthy, it gets exaggerated into an epic drama. And sadly most good news gets ignored or covered up by all the bad news. So it's all too negative and depressing to read.

When you get past all the negativity. Or ignore that the media prefers to focus on the 5% bad news, and ignore most of the good news. Definitely the glass is half empty kinda people. Newspapers, tabloids, and television seem to lie or embellish the facts all the time about people and events to push their biased point of view. I can only assume that printing the truth is never as entertaining or profitable as gossip or here say. And apparently no matter how good someone is, they can never prevent those that hate or are prejudice from believing the worst, or choosing to ignore the positive or good things that contradict their misconceptions. From what I've seen as an outside observer, that's why so many countries hate each other. In oppressive totalitarian countries where the government controls the media. All the people read is lies and negative attacks on those that are different, dehumanizing whomever those's in power hate. Outsiders are always shown to be bad and have evil intentions. Minorities and outsiders in general are always to blame for all the social ills and loathed as monsters. So instead of promoting peace or understanding, some media prefers to promote hate and hostility. They inflame the passions of the masses, and try to manipulate them like sheep into believing whatever they want.

Anyway, I really don't care about headlines. Good or bad, true or false, in the end they are only words. Acts of kindness and deeds of heroism speak louder than words. There is nothing to learn from such untrustworthy sources. I base my views on logic and reason, not hate, or intolerance. Let the headlines say whatever they want. You can only do your best everyday, to show what kind of person you really are. Being a decent, honest, good person that always treats people right, and helps others in need is the only way to live. I have no desire to be famous or get my name in the paper. I'll leave that to others that place some meaning or value on such unimportant things.

Powerboy - Write about a lie your parents told you.

I was abandoned by my mother as a baby, and never knew my father. So I never had any parents. Ergo, I can't write about a lie my parents told me. And far as who raised me, or what happened when I ended up in a hellish orphanage. My childhood is a bit too emotionally traumatizing to talk or write about. But I can say that I was never lied to. Nobody ever cared enough to lie.

Gee, this is a very depressing topic isn't it? Despite my crap upbringing, I still believe that most people are good. I believe that most parents are good, and not cruel or abusive to their children. Clearly the insane or mentally incompetent should always be restricted from having any child rearing responsibilities. Yet most animals, and humans do tend to care for their young. Least long enough for them to survive on their own. So if I did have parents, I'd expect them to be honest and truthful; to be caring and nurturing; be protective and supportive, and help me grow into a responsible adult. Good parents are supposed to show nothing but unconditional love for their children. And be a role model, and positive example of what a grown up should be like. If they don't, then they aren't good parents.

Lastly, regardless of who is telling a lie, a parent, a child, whoever. Lying is a negative thing, and is wrong. All negative actions should be discouraged, for whatever the reason, a lie usually does more harm than good. Even if well intentioned, a lie would damage a relationship. Be it family, friends, or acquaintances, a lie would destroy the trust and deep bond one shares. And once damaged, fixing a relationship can prove to be very difficult, if not impossible. So honesty and truthfulness is what all parents and everyone in general should try to do.

Thoughtful 2

What are you afraid of?

Fear is a universal emotion. Like love, hate, pain, or sorrow. Just as everyone feels and suffers. Everyone has fears. Most are too afraid to admit they have fears. Some are better at hiding their fears than others. But we're all afraid of something. Fear of dying alone. Fear of rejection. Fear of being a failure. Fear of being a disappointment to others and ourselves. Not being smart enough. Not being good enough. That if we're not as great or perfect as others expect us to be, we'll never be truly loved.

I've tried to overcome most of my fears. But no matter how hard I try, there is the one big fear that I can't seem to overcome. The one fear I can never seem to get past. And that greatest fear is not being loved. Not being loved in the way I need and want to be loved... passionately, completely, and unconditionally. And sadly, my abusive past hasn't helped to make me think otherwise. Abandoned as a child into a life of despair and hopelessness. Growing up unloved, uncared for, with no friends or family. Made to feel like I didn't matter. Nobody ever loved or cared about me. I was just a nobody from a place that doesn't matter.

Despite the cold and heartless world I grew up in. Despite being treated like a dog. I've always tried to turn the other cheek. Not let the cruelty or hate of others get me down. I've always been a kind and compassionate soul. Albeit perhaps too passionate. My empathetic nature doesn't help in that. Even when I try so hard not to, I overwhelm people. I used to think nobody loved me because I was lacking. Because their was something wrong with me. I'm too much for most people to handle or understand. I'm the living embodiment of abundance... too much empathy, too much emotion, too much love, too much passion. I'm too good for my own good. Good enough to help when others need something or want to use me. Yet never good enough for anyone to care about me as a person. Is it wrong to want acceptance and love, not because of what I can do or what I look like, but just because I want someone to truly care about me.

Given my past, I'm no where near the point of accepting who I am. I'm still embarrassed by who I've always been. But I'm not going to let others tell me how to live or think. Yes I feel too deeply, and care too much. I am over the top. And I know that tangos with tornadoes have a tendency to overpower most of the human race. Life would be so much simpler if I could tone things down a little. Be more normal, and be like everyone else. Not care as much, not love as much, not be as heroic or selfless. Not have a consuming passion to help others or give all the love I have to give. I've tried, oh God how have I tried to be what others want. I've always tried to be what others wanted me to be. And no matter how much I do for others. No matter how much kindness I show or love I give. I've always been left ashamed that I'm not good enough. That nothing I do matters. Because I don't matter.

Yet every time I've pretended to be a kinda boy I'm not... holding back for fear of looking foolish, being rejected, not being loved... my emotions get the better of me. My mind can try to pretend to be someone I'm not, but my body and heart can't. So instead of being reserved to make others feel more comfortable. Now I'm just trying to warn those new in my life about what they're in for. Being true to myself, and honest with others from the start, will hopefully help me find the friendship and happiness that I've always longed for. I know it's better to find those that will accept me for who I truly am, than living a lie all my life, trying to be someone else.

However, time after time, fear stands in my way. I lack the courage, and confidence to be myself around most people. I fear criticism, hate conflict, and just want everyone to be happy. So don't guess I'll have the friends or loving relationships anytime soon. But whether I ever get past my emotional or psychological issues. I'm still going to be the best I can be. Always try to think positive, and learn from my mistakes. And no matter what, I'll try to put the needs of others first. Doing what others want. What I want doesn't matter. As long as everyone else gets what they want... friendship, love, happiness... then I feel like I've made a difference.

So I've derailed and detoured my dreams for everyone else. Dreams are for others. I accept reality for what it is. A dark world that needs the light of hope and love shined upon it. And I accept the hand fate has dealt me. As a hero, I am a light in the darkness. I have an obligation to God and those I love to always do the right thing. Put others first. Show kindness and give a helping hand to those who need it most. Be a champion for all that is good and just. I know that whether I find the happiness and love I want or not. Being afraid or letting fear and hate destroy me, is the only way I'll fail for sure. So long as I care for others, and never lose hope in the power of love to make the impossible possible. Tomorrow can be better than today. And peace and happiness is possible, if not for me, then at least for others and the world I love so much.

Hurting in the shadows, Powerboy in shadows

Lost Love

When I look at a picture of an old American English Dictionary with a gold ring and cute heart shadow. All I see are the words 'lost' on the left side of the book and 'love' on the right. And God do I know all about being lost. And sadly, even more about lost love. I've been lost and unloved my entire life. And no matter how much I'd wish for it to be different. I kinda think that's the way I'll always feel.

[Locked to Supergirl]

I'm just a very lonely and heartbroken sixteen year old alien from Apokolips. Abandoned by my mother into a life of despair and hopelessness. I was different, so never had any friends growing up. I knew only years of abuse and cruelty at the hands of Darkseid. Physically and mentally tortured. Against my will having my body and mind genetically manipulated... turning me into a freak with weird powers... including emotionally painful, empathic powers to feel everyone's fear, love, hate, and pain.

I've tried so hard to block out all the hurt and pain. But no matter how hard I try to forget, I am forever haunted by my traumatic childhood on Apokolips. I escaped physically, but emotionally... psychologically... not sure I ever will escape from what Darkseid done to me. Yet despite all the pain, there was one bright spot. One glimmer of hope that gave me the power to never give up. I'm thankful that I found you. You saved me without even knowing or trying. I'm eternally grateful for the good girl I fell in love with. Supergirl you gave me the strength to rise above all the darkness and hate. Since that first moment back in September 2004 on Apokolips, when I felt your beautiful soul. From that moment on, I knew what being good and heroic felt like. And I knew for the first time what love felt like. You gave me the courage to run away from my hellish home world. To reject all the evil plans Darkseid had made for me. Taking the powers, codename, and costume he gave me, and becoming not a bad guy but one of the good guys. Taking Father Box, and Little Barda, and escaping to a new life on Earth. I became a hero just like my inspiration. I became a Teen Titan. I helped Beast Boy and Raven fight evil and save countless lives. Then Lex Luthor and his stupid Infinity Inc team showed up and destroyed my new life with the Teen Titans. He caused me to doubt myself as a hero, and so I quit the Teen Titans.

Yet, I still remembered you Kara. It had been two years since I'd first seen you on Apokolips. I remembered that you would never give up. Even to your last breath, you would always fight the darkness and evil of Darkseid, Luthor, or any other hateful villains. So I searched out for the girl that had inspired me to become a hero in the first place. Although I was too afraid to actually introduce myself at first. I thought that just seeing you be all brave and courageous would inspire me to try harder, and not give up on being a hero. Yet when I found you, and felt all your anguish and heartache. Felt how lonely, lost, and rejected you was. I knew then that you needed my help. I tried to save you from all the hate and self-doubt that Darkseid had planted into you. I thought we could help each other rise above our fears and doubts, to be heroes, and help make the world a better place. I took you to Mexico during a Hurricane to help save women and children's lives... to remind you what it felt like to be a hero. As we spent more time together and became boyfriend and girlfriend. I tried to show you nothing but kindness and love. And tried to remind you that despite all the bad things that we have no power over, which includes our abusive pasts or bad people trying to destroy our lives. We do have power over who we are now. And using our powers for good and showing kindness and friendship to those most in need is the only thing we do have control over in a crazy world. So choosing love and understanding over hate and vengeance is the only way to find true peace and happiness in life.

Like a supportive friend I tried to be there for you whenever you needed me. Help fight and stop the League of Assassins out to kill you. Let you know that you may have felt very much alone. Felt like a failure to Superman who's love and respect you wanted so badly. But that you wasn't a failure, it was just others trying to cause you to doubt yourself, to doubt that you was deserving to be a hero. Only you had the power to conquer your personal demons. And despite all your mistakes and all the crap your loved ones and bad guys put you through. You never let any of the heartache and disappointments break you. You was and will always be a super girl that never gives up and never surrenders. Not only do I love how you always put others first, but also that you have the inner strength to face any challenge and win. That's why your always be my inspiration.

Despite trying so hard to help. I found out that it doesn't matter how good you are, or how many lives you save. Bad things can, and will happen to you anyway. Because life isn't always fair. Especially when you have mean hateful people out to make your life a living hell. *Feels totally heartbroken as he stares at the definition of lost in the dictionary. No longer possessed; ruined or destroyed physically; unable to find the way.*

I know what it feels like to lose everything due to someone else's all consuming hate and need to destroy. The evil mind controlling and reality manipulating Dark Angel screwed up my relationship with the girl I love most in the Universe. From the painful and disastrous first date where I ended up with a wooden staff ghosted through my head and left hanging on the Hollywood Sign. To the very last moment using my Father Box to break us up. She wanted to destroy you so badly, and didn't care who else suffered or was left ruined in the process. So despite all the months I was able to help protect you from Dark Angel, and all her attempts with the League of Assassin's at trying to destroy the girl I cared most for. In the end Dark Angel's hate was stronger than my love. Dark Angel used me as an instrument of hate. She used Father Box to take over my body, and used me like a puppet to hurt the one I loved most. Then used Father Box to create a temporal spatial eruption to send you to some other reality to mess up your life even more. And in doing so destroyed the happy life I had always been searching for. Fortunately you was strong enough to survive all the months of mind games and all the attempts by Dark Angel to make you give up on life. I knew you was too stubborn and tough to ever give up on living or on trying to help save others. But in terms of my life, the damage was done. I was left with nothing but the burned clothes on my back and nightmarish memories I'd rather have lost with everything else.[/Locked]

I'm not really sure how to start over after losing everything. All I do know is that I'm not letting the hate of others destroy me. Darkseid. Luthor. Dark Angel. Their hate has destroyed so many lives. But I'm not letting their evil games and hatred stop me from being good, or trying to be a better person. Just like my heroic role models, Supergirl and Superman refuse to let any set backs or stupid villains stop them from moving forward or doing what's right. Long as I have the power to make a difference, I'll do whatever I can to help animals and people in need. Even if that means just helping one soul at a time. Then that's what I'll do. Cause I refuse to let cruelty, hate, or evil win.

My Mission, Supergirl/Powerboy: Mission

To be great is to be misunderstood.

(ooc: This is the canonical Power Boy's response to this topic, and takes place just after the events seen in Supergirl vol 5 #13.)

"To be great is to be misunderstood." quote by R.W. Emerson

Time: February 15th, 2007.
Universe: New Earth - Mainstream DC Universe.
Location: Power Boy's Airplane hanger/home in New Jersey.

It's the day after Valentine's Day 2007. A very misunderstood boy from the hellish world of Apokolips, is alone with his pug dog Kirby. He's worried about many things. All the murder attempts on his beloved Supergirl at the top of those fears. The League of Assassins is causing him to worry about how much time he and Kara has left together. He already messed up big time, while trying to protect Kara, getting himself killed. Japanese super-villainess Gakidou, having killed him at the Hollywood Sign, by ghosting her wooden staff through his head, and leaving him hung out to dry. But luckily his Father Box had taken over his body, and restored him to life before Kara realized what had happened.

Yet, even if none of those out to destroy Supergirl, kill him for getting in the way. He still has his own enemies to worry about. Given that he has a death warrant on his chest due to abandoning Darkseid and his evil plans. Having taken Father Box and his only friend sister Little Barda, and escaping from Apokolips. He knows that the demonic Darkseid, or one of his agents will eventually find, and kill him for turning his back on evil. Destroy him for trying to help protect Earth and Supergirl. So he's living on borrowed time, and knows that at the most, a matter of weeks or months is all he has left with the girl he has sacrificed everything for.

To ensure that no matter what happens in the future, and that Kara knows how he really feels. That he's forever grateful that her love changed his life. And that he'll never regret loving her. Never regret becoming a hero and saving the lives he saved. Powerboy writes the bellow letter to his one and only love. And using Father Box, he sends it, a Valentine's Day Card, and a single red rose through time and space to appear outside the door of Supergirl's Manhattan Apartment on Valentine's Day 2008.

Dear Kara,

I hope this letter finds you and all those you care about happy and loved. If not, know that regardless of time or place, I'm always sending positive vibes and much love your way.

Given all the crazy fluctuations in the time line that's been happening over the last several years. And your usual bad luck with being brain washed or mind controlled. Or having your memories messed with by evil creeps out to manipulate and destroy you and your cousin Superman. You may not remember me or all the great times we had. My name really doesn't matter anyway. All that matters, is that you had a profound impact on my life. After a lifetime of pain and suffering... of knowing only abuse, hatred, loneliness, and rejection. Never knowing what love truly was, or what being a hero really felt like. When I felt your beautiful soul for the first time on Apokolips. You gave my life meaning and purpose. You gave me a mission in life. You inspired me to be a better person. You gave me the strength that comes from loving someone deeply. The courage to do things I thought impossible. You made me see that being a hero, and helping people, is never easy, but is always the right thing to do. Because of you, I came to Earth. I became an Earth hero. Became a Teen Titan. Helped Beast Boy and Raven when nobody else would. Helped save thousands of men, women, and children's life's. All the good I've done, or ever will do is because you inspired me to care about and wanna help others.

We're both different. People judge us on the way we look. We're orphaned alien teens from very strange alien worlds. We didn't get to grow up on Earth. And given our abusive and screwed up backgrounds, are surely lacking in knowing how to fit in or be normal humans teenagers. Yet humans apply their values and belief systems to us. Thinking we have to be a certain type of person based on our looks, super powers, and who they think we should be, without really knowing us. But we're not like humans. And whatever others think of us. We don't think we're better than anyone else. If only they could feel our pain. Then they'd know the opposite is actually true. We hate ourselves. Hate our abusive and painful pasts. Hate having been used as a pawn to hurt those we love. And don't think we're deserving or worth to be cared about or loved.

But we do deserve to be be loved just like everyone else. For as different as we are. We're not heartless inhuman monsters. We bleed. We cry. We feel. We have a conscience. We have a soul. We care about others. We can't help where we was born. Can't help how others used and abused us as children. Can't help what powers we have. Can't help how hateful and evil jerks manipulated and destroyed our lives. And even though our differences, will always cause most Earthlings to fear, hate, or misunderstand us. Despite people not opening their arms up and embracing us as heroes and protectors of the world. We love Earth and it's people. And as heroes with super powers, it's our obligation to help serve and protect our adoptive home world. Our world's was destroyed by hatred and evil. Knowing what we know, and having the power that we have. It is our moral duty as Superheroes to make sure Earth does not share the same disastrous fate as Apokolips, or Krypton. To help save it, and make it a place of peace, happiness, and love for all.

Never let anyone make you doubt yourself. We can't control how others see us. And certainly can't control what others do to hurt us. But we must always try our best, to continually move forward. To think positive and never lose hope that tomorrow can be better than today. Learn from our mistakes and set backs. Strive to be better everyday. Always keeping our heart open to love. I know you have a hard time asking or admitting when you need help. But even heroes need saved sometimes. So let your friends and family help you. Don't run away from your destiny. Embrace who you really are. Not the monster that your father, Darkseid, Luthor, or others want you to be. Reject the darkness and the hate. Be the compassionate and loving hero that always puts others first, and always does the right thing, painful as that can be. If you never lose hope, and never stop caring about people. You have the power to do great things. The power not only to save yourself, but save the world and even the Universe, when it needs you. Because you are a great person, with the most beautiful and loving soul I've ever felt. You are a true hero. Just as a teenager, you've already given so much, and helped so many. So never doubt that you deserve to be loved, just as much as you love others.

I just want to thank you for everything. You helped me to feel what love truly is. After years of abuse and cruelty at the hands of Darkseid. You opened your arms and your heart to me. I'm grateful for the time I shared with you and Streaky. Forever thankful to you for letting me be a small part of your life. For making me feel complete, and like I actually belonged somewhere for the first time in my life. Thank you for being who you are. For caring about others. For sacrificing so much. Even at the expense of your own personal happiness, to give others the chance to live and find happiness. If I had any wish, it would be that I could always be there for you, to give you the love and support you need. Yet given my past, and that I've already cheated death many times before. And due to the life threatening dangers that comes with being a hero. I think, much as I would wish it to be otherwise, by the time you read this, fate will have divided us. But nothing can destroy my wish for you to carry on, and find the love and happiness you deserve. So whatever happens, I just want you to know, that I'll always love you. Not even death could ever destroy my love of you. My thoughts and prayers will always be with you. And my heart and undying love will always be yours. Til we meet again, be it in this life or the next. Best Wishes and Goodbye Kara, my first and only love.

Yours always, Powerboy.♥

Color Quiz From Many Wonderful People

What Color Are You?

BLUES are motivated by INTIMACY, seek opportunities to genuinely connect with others, and need to be appreciated. They do everything with quality and are devoted and loyal friends and employers/employees. Whatever or whomever they commit to are their sole (and soul) focus. They love to serve and will give freely of themselves in order to nurture others lives. BLUES, however, do need to be understood. They have distinct preferences and occasionally the somewhat controlling (but always fair) personality of a confident leader. Their code of ethics is remarkably strong and they expect others to live honest, committed lives as well. They enjoy sharing meaningful moments in conversation as well as remembering special life events (i.e., birthdays and anniversaries). BLUES are dependable, thoughtful, nurturing, and can also be self-righteous, a bit worry-prone, and emotionally intense. They are like sainted pit-bulls who never let go of something once they are committed. When you deal with a BLUE, be sincere, make an effort to truly understand them, and truly appreciate them.

Same as Tim, and several others on my friends list. Guess we all have a need for acceptance, intimacy, and emotional problems. Although do think I'm a bit more purple, than blue most of the time. Uh, sorry, bad hair joke:)

Not So Fun, Child Abuse Victim, Powerboy on Apokolips

Fly on the Wall?

What event do you wish you could have been a "fly on the wall" for?

Gee, I'm not quite sure what the point of this question is? Something to do with a past event. And wishing to know what happened at the event. The fly on the wall part implies spying, or hiding, while watching said event. Given my abused and tortured past. I'm not too keen on the events I was actually at. And darn sure know it's wrong to spy on people. So why the heck would I wanna get dragged into any more crap situations, than I've already been dragged into? It sounds insane.

Would it not be easier just to ask someone that was actually at the event. If the participants at the event are alive, wouldn't they tell you whatever you wanna know? Or if it was some famous historical event. Shouldn't what happened be in a book, movie, or some type of data storage unit? And if it's not public knowledge, then it's private, and one should always respect the privacy of others. Plus if your meant to know something, the truth has a way of coming out. It might take a long time, but like they say, the truth always wins out in the end.

So to answer this question... or is it not answer. Whatever. I do not wish to be a *quote* fly on the wall *unquote* watching any event.

I Have Always Loved You

Here are the lyrics to a really heartwarming and romantic love song by Enrique Iglesias. The power of music really touches my heart, and makes me feel better, even when the world is sad. If just for a moment, music helps me to forget about all the badness and problems in life. Helps take my imagination away to a happier place of peace and love. So put a smile on your face, and listen to some beautiful music.

I Have Always Loved You

Since the beginning of time
Since it started to rain
Since I heard you laugh
Since I felt your pain
I was too young, you were much younger
We were afraid of each other's hunger

I have always loved you
There's never been anyone else
I knew you before I knew myself
Oh my baby, I have always loved you

Since we kissed the first time
Since we slept on the beach
You were too close for comfort
You were too far out of reach
You walked away, I should have held you
Would you have stayed for me to tell you?

I have always loved you
There's never been anyone else
I knew you before I knew myself
Oh my baby, I have always loved you
Years go by in a matter of days
And though we go separate ways
I never stop dreaming of you
I have always loved you

And when you call it makes me cry
We never made time for you and I
If I could live it all again
I'd never let it end
I'd still be with you
Oh God, I miss you

I have always loved you
There's never been anyone else
I knew you before I knew myself
Oh my baby, I have always loved you
Years go by in a matter of days
And though we go separate ways
I never stop dreaming of you
I have always loved you

Crystal Ball

If a crystal ball could tell you the truth about any one thing you wished ~ concerning yourself, your life, the future, or anything else ~ what would you want to know?

I'm just an emotionally needy teenage boy with partial amnesia. So really don't know much about human history or all their strange customs and belief systems. But have heard mention of fortune telling, psychic hot lines, and paranormal tv shows. Weird people claiming to have the power to see dead people, or predict someone's future. I'm not sure what to make of such people. And not sure if their intentions are pure, or if they are more interested in fame and fortune.

I can see why those who are confused, direction less, unsure of them self or their place in the world would wanna believe in such things. Why they'd want answers to life's mysteries. So look to someone or some object that promises the truth. Giving people hope isn't bad. We all need to have faith and hope that life will be better someday. That we'll eventually find love, success, and good fortune. So long as someone isn't pretending they have the power. When they are really just a con artist out to make money exploiting someones desperate emotional need to know the truth about a lost loved one... or telling them what they want to hear about the future, whether it's true or not. That seems to be cruel and heartless. So not very nice. I guess long as someone doesn't allow them self to become obsessed about such things. It seems to be relatively harmless, and may bring some peace of mind to those who believe or need to believe.

Yet, I really don't think I'd want the power to know about my future. Maybe I'd like to know more about my past. But even that scares me. Sometimes I think the old saying is true, that ignorance is bliss. So I may be better off not knowing the truth. From first hand experience, the truth usually gives a whole lot of pain, and not the peace of mind one hoped to find. And pain is the one emotion I have no need to feel anymore. I've got more than enough emotional baggage to carry as it is. So don't think I'd wanna know anything from a Crystal Ball, Fortune Teller, or whatever primitive magic rituals humans believe in. Plus I don't think it's good to read ahead in a book to see how the story will end. That spoils the whole fun of story. So think I'll wait and let the blank pages of tomorrow, come to life, and write them self.
