We will get by

I was all excited when I heard you were on.
I sent you positive things to decorate your wall. 
I gave you pictures to remember the loved ones lost.
We have chatted and started to catch up. 

You told me something that broke my heart. 
I can’t believe you are willing to go back. 
What do you miss about the place?
The waking up and going to bed in a cage? 
Walking the same corridors wearing the same thing as everyone else?
Being alone while your thoughts beat your mind up day and night?
Having no way to call to say hi?

Your decisions run your life here is your turn to decide. 
Chose wisely from here on out.
Say no to the games the devil plays. 
Remember the devil took 5 long years away.

Believe in your father and defend his name.
He will forgive you for all your sins 
He will show you a love you’ve never known. 
He can open doors for you to walk through
He can open windows for your spirit to fly through at night.
He will send angels to guard your dreams from the demons you fight.

I have learned a lot since you have been gone. 
I was at a fork in my life where I needed peace of mind.
I turned to my father in the sky for guidance to get by. 

He sent an angel to guide my way 
Someone to help build up my confidence and trust 
My foundation is firm my faith is strong; my spirit grows with a deeper love. 
I see things others don’t see. 
I understand things others long to know. 
I am one with my world
I am a child of god’s love this I know.

I will never need or want again. 
My lord has already accepted my hand. 
He will provide when he feels fit 
And hears every one of my prayers I say. 

I understand you only know pain.
But don’t you get sick of the struggling?
The way you battle yourself inside? 
 I know it ate me up at night. 

So do me a favor before you have that drink?
Remember all the promises you have made.
Go out and help someone in need
everyone needs help back to their feet. 
I will be here to listen to you, 
I will be here to help you through. 
But I can’t make the decision for you.
It is you choice so decide.

What means more a drink or goodbye? 
You have one chance left please choose right
or off to jail you go for the rest of your life…

    Wow ... Cory .... a strong and powerful, poem. - Although you love your brother, you can not live your life for him. - He must figure out his own lives. - You have your family ..... and in the family there is no room for alkehol or drugs. - It is hard and say NO to his own brother - but enough is enough. - Take care of yourself and your family Cory. - oxox love Anne-Lise :)
