Planned from the Start

My mom past away and I remain in grief.
Which made it hard to keep my beliefs.

I was only twelve when she died.
People said, “It’ll be ok” but they lied.

Life’s hard without a mom or dad.
That’s the one thing I wish I had.

A lot of people tell me how much they care.
But when in need of a shoulder, no one’s there.

Losing my parents gave me a strong heart.
Now I know God had it planned from the start.

    Terrible, but Beautiful; Sad, but Hopeful; Shocking, but Inspiring. Keep on sharing, Tyler. God bless you. Ruben.

    Profound words describing a childhood gone wrong. I'm glad you found the strength from this unfortunate situation life has put you in. Keep you head up and keep writing, nice work...Raul

    Enduring such losses at age 12 must have been very difficult, Tyler. I'm glad you feel it gave you strength, but I'm sorry you had to grow up without the love of your parents. Bless you, Carolyn

    Your pillar of strength does not lie in what you have. It lies in what you have not. This alone is your foundation. No one ever said the life you are given is guarenteed. It changes every minute. Make the most of the minutes you have left. Even in sorrow our future grows.-AA
