There are many challenges when two individuals are in such a relationship, and they have to learn to deal with negative attention and absorb judgmental comments from the society.

The Dark Woods

The Dark Woods

She had heard the stories, well everybody had. Hardly a child in the town old enough to have been told a ghost story was unaware of the history surrounding the woods on the outskirts of town. Over the years the tales of “The Dark Woods”, as they had become known, had passed from rumour to folklore and finally into urban myth. Everyone knew the stories, but nobody ever believed them, not any more. Which is why when Katy Adams had been dared to walk through the woods alone and at night...

Anecdote

It Couldnt Be Done
by Edgar A. Guest from Michigan, United States
like 3dislike 0report 0

Somebody said that it couldn’t be done
But he with a chuckle replied
That “maybe it couldn’t,” but he would be one
Who wouldn’t say so till he’d tried.
So he buckled right in with the trace of a grin
On his face. If he worried he hid it.
He started to sing as he tackled the thing
That couldn’t be done, and he did it!
Somebody scoffed: “Oh, you’ll never do that;
At least no one ever has done it;”
But he took off his coat and he took off his hat
And the first thing we knew he’d begun it.
With a lift of his chin and a bit of a grin,
Without any doubting or quiddit,
He started to sing as he tackled the thing
That couldn’t be done, and he did it.
There are thousands to tell you it cannot be done,
There are thousands to prophesy failure,
There are thousands to point out to you one by one,
The dangers that wait to assail you.
But just buckle in with a bit of a grin,
Just take off your coat and go to it;
Just start in to sing as you tackle the thing
That “cannot be done,” and you’ll do it.
