Montana, USA. A cold winter morning on a hardly used backside road. It goes through the areas of Montana that tourists tend not to visit. The areas of living. These are the roads and places of working people and old buildings. Not her area of usual passes through.

I like challenges. You know why? Well, Im going to grace you and tell you. Because when I want to ...........I win. But here is another little bit of information. I like the knowledge of knowing Im better than most people as much as the win that may come. I do not need to win but those who claim not to be in it for themselves........................ ..................................seem to have to have that pleasure, Always. I dont. I know what I can do. I can control the atmosphere, the levels; and the intensity................................. ........................................................One of these days someone will challenge me enough to wakeup and want to win each and every step. Holmes was not that key, Holly was not that key; and maybe I will never find it. But I will always know that I was the one making the pawns move and creating the chances.

By the mind and film her names Molly Hardy. While driving down the road on her way to a business meeting her car suddenly and with great violence slides off the road. The cause is a wet spot in the road and a speed of 100 MPH. The rental car goes left and she corrects right and seems to have it under control but crashes into a farm tracker that was parked on the side of the road.

remains lay smoking.

I was born for more than this.
Director, executive, ruler, person above you.
I was born for leadership and leading.
Leader, chief, director, boss, person in charge.
I am not weak and need?????
No...................... I do not need from anyone.
Protection from others I do not want and in fact I do believe I make others stronger.

falling in the snow.

They say Im cold and unfeeling.............................................................. bitter ..........................remote....................frozen......................I feel.......I feel memories. I feel my strength. I feel my depth in knowing my strengths. They weigh many............ ............They can have their eyes, their hearts; and their weaknesses............ Sitting here I know all the rightful truths and devoted answers.

oh, oh help me.

........................................................No. NOOOO!!!!!!!!! I do not beg. I do not need. I make for and I achieve.

still the sky was empty.

My adversary. My imp........................what is that? Do I see that? Do I think that?

then out of the sky came the lights.

........................................................................

I can stay here. I can rest......................I can be like them..................have peace. No one understands. No one is in my mind......................................... ...................I.......... I am Noooooooo! I am my own person. I am not my family. I am not the world............. "Who are you Miss?????? Miss. what is your name?"..........I'm Molly.................................................................. .......................Molly Hardy. "Dont worry Miss. Hardy where on our way to the hospital. Dont worry."

out of the fear came the strength.

I'm more than I have ever been. I awoke. I win.

lights of life.

Now I will challenge them.

THE END

remains lay smoking
crawling by little by little
i can hardly breathe
unprotected, exposed to the numbing conditions
I feel no pain


falling in the snow
dazed and confused
paralysed with fear
huddled together
for warmth in the trees
where the lights where is
help only the silence

oh, oh help me


still the sky was empty
freezing fog descended and
the snow begins to fall
silence was an enemy
more hated than the cold
so we whispered stories to help us forget

then out of the sky came the lights
two tiny lights
I wanted to kiss the earth and the stars
no cruel mirage, a distant visage
the silence had broken

out of the sky came the lights
out of the night
out of the fear
came the strength
strength to live
out of the sky came the lights,
lights of life

out of the fear came the strength
strength to live
out of the sky came the
lights of life

It was my birthday the day they found me
now I am one week old
my life from this moment begins again

out of the sky came the lights
out of the night
out of the fear
came the strength,
strength to live
live to love
out of the sky came the lights,
lights of life

out of the fear came the strength,
strength to live,
live to love
out of the sky came the lights,
lights of life
out of the fear came the strength,
strength to live
out of the sky came the lights,
lights of life
out of the fear came the strength,
strength to live
out of the sky came the lights.
